Bwaaaaa-haaaa-haaa! We're going to get you!

Happy Halloween, everyone! Here are DH and I in our costumes...the scariest thing we could think of:

We won a prize for best costumes at the Halloween party: a bottle of Vampire Blood wine. Yum! We'll probably pull the cork tonight, while the little kiddos are trick-or-treating! Not shown in the photo are the chains of painkillers and cold medicines around our necks. On our backs are signs reading "Ban Tamiflu!… Continue

Knitting, Quilting, Spinning, Injuries and Snow!

The spinning group is up again after a summer hiatus. We met yesterday. Here's Rita, one of the participants. I met her at the Alpaca Days a few weeks back:

Recognize Rita's bag? She did the alternate variation in the same colorway as mine, and she did the strap as written. She also spins and weaves. We had our spinning meeting yesterday at Linda's Blue Moon Ranch. Most of us brought our wheels. I got to meet Kathleen, who has suri… Continue

New Knitters!!!

There's almost nothing better than meeting people who are just learning to knit! Well, except for maybe a KP order filled with yarn, books and new needles! I was invited to a neighbor's house for a "Stitch and Bitch" session Sunday night.

Here I am with one of the knitters. (I'm the older one!) I took my spinning wheel. DH went along to watch football with the other husbands and the father of the hostess, Mary, who was there for a… Continue

Spinning, Spiders and Other Things

I'm making progress on DH's Fair Isle sleeveless cardi! My needles are smoking...well sort of. I just have to finish the current motif, and I'll be able to start the neck and armholes. Here's what it looks like:

The steek will go where the funny vertical stripes are. I am not afraid of steeks anymore after my Classic Lines Cardigan. I'm hoping to finish in time for my second (and final!) thumb surgery. If not, he'll get the sweater in… Continue

Happy Birthday, Joanie!

This is an extra blog to share Joanie's birthday with all of you, especially everyone who has a birthday on October 8th!

This was my present to Joanie: enough of my hand-spun Coopworth to make a Landscape Shawl like mine, so she won't steal it! I also gave her one of those needle gauges that looks like a cross section of a snail. A lot of LYSs have them but you can see what I mean… Continue

Sweater Time!

Good thing I'm making progress on DH's Fair Isle Sleeveless Cardi:

It's the Fridarey Sleeveless Cardigan from The Art of Fair Isle Knitting by Ann Feitelson. The yarn is Jamieson and Smith's Shetland yarn in a fingering weight. Here's a close up:

Winter is paying it's usual short autumn visit in Park City. It always warms up again after this, but it's a reminder:… Continue
