Peggy, you are my personal "guru".  You have knitted so many wonderful things.  I'm no stranger to the needles, but I haven't done as much since I found quilting as I used to. I've done some quite complicated projects, but I'm in a quandary over the toe-up sock patterns. I have a couple that I downloaded off this site, Thermal Socks and Wildflower Socks.  Here's the problem:  The very first thing after casting on.  I can't figure out for the life of me how casting on 8 stitches becomes knitting in the round.  I've managed to teach myself by means of a book how to do the top down patterns, but this has me stumped.  What can you tell me?  Maybe there's a You-Tube video out there?  I don't know; I always think of you when I'm in a pickle.  Do you feel your ears burning?  LOL

yup, thought it was close.  We don't go over the road anymore.  He has a local driving job which he comes home late every night, 3 dedicated rounds to Denison Iowa about 90 miles from where we live here in Sioux City.

Yup Peggy, I checked with hubby and he said we went right past your road, lol.  Small world isn't it???

Hi Peggy, just thought I would stop and check out your blog.  I like reading what everyone else is up too.  Also, I know where Park City is in Utah.  John (hubby)_ used to regularly go through there way back when we were first married, I rode along with him for almost a year.  Have a great evening.

Hey Peggy. I'm bothering you with yet another question. :D I couldn't help but notice the beautiful spinning wheel in your picture slide show. Could I ask where you were able to find it? It's not so easy to find one around here. I'll probably end up getting a drop spindle first until I get the hang of spinning, but it'd be nice to know where to start looking if I ever can manage to get one.

Hi Peggy thank you I don't know anything about spinning but I'm sure I'll learn a lot from you guys so that when I'm ready to start I shouldn't be to bad at it ....hahaha

Working with natural dyes reminds me of a chemistry experient. The mordants, temps and ph's of your dye bath will determine the color you end up with. I like to experiment. One year I have a bumper crop of mint in my garden. I used it to make a dye bath and with some copper salt I got a rather deep pine green. And so far, it's been color fast.

LOL Yes, you did. My daughter moved out last July and I'm still trying to decide where to set up my craft area. Last night I clean a space in my computer/cat room for my wheel with the idea that I would get back to spinning. It's been months.

And I'm "lurking" on the dye along. I've dabbled with natural dyes. So, I'm hooked.

Yep, a guy in the Sping KAL. I told my wife I wanted to learn to spin, she thought I was crazy and told me it was tedious. I told her that I wouldn't devote my life to it, but it'd be a great stress reliever, I'm sure.

I love my Jerkins Turkish drop spindle. I finally got a job so now I have less time to spin or knit. I will keep checking in with everyone though! Your projects look fantastic BTW. I love your spindles, they are beautiful.

There is an idea... I do have a regular sewing machine. I like the "Let it snow" wall hanging. :) I was thinking the place mats would be simple too??

That sounds dangerous! hehe
Another fiber habit, not sure my pocketbook can handle it. hehe
Maybe after my eventual move to a new place. I already have some items in my Wish List :)

I have joined the Quilt With Us on CT. Right now I'm just investigating the idea of Quilting. Thanks for replying :) I really like your quilts and the others I have seen so far on the site.

I have a quilting question for you... Is there a place online for a beginner to learn the steps/process of quilting? For someone who knows how to sew with a regular sewing machine but knows nothing about quilting?

I haven't woven anything since probably 1995 or so, Peggy, but before I sell all my weaving supplies I think I'll have to see if my poor knees and hips can still take it. I used to wake up thinking weaving and go to sleep the same way...that was before the quilting bug hit. Now that Elly S. wants photos of my blocks, I feel I have to finish at least one quilt first before I do much of anything else. And then there's this lovely new bag of fresh alpaca for me to play with... With that and finding you ladies to play with every day, my life is very full

Ohmigosh, Peggy, are you on QWU as well? So is Cellogirl! Looks like one passion leads to another . Do you weave as well? I think it's really interesting to see how so many young ladies are interested in spinning/dyeing/knitting. When I learned to spin, it was spinning to knit or mostly weave. I'm seriously drowning in all the fibre in this household. Anyway, glad to meet you . I'm going down to LaConner in October to QuiltFest, so have been researching where the knitting shops are from Belingham South to La Conner. Tomorrow Starting tomorrow, I'll be spending two glorious days with ELly Sienkiewicz. Amn I lucky or what?
