About Me:
I'm 50 yrs old,(Aug 08), married a bit over 30 years and have been a textile junkie since 1988. Of all my textile interests, I love to quilt, and knit the most. Some projects include dyeing wool yarn and cotton fabric. I've just started to spin a bit too. My 2nd love is traveling, something I've yet to explore very much but active explore possilities. Oh, and I've started my own "bucket list".

*****Wedding is over, Let the knitting and quilting begin again.

Posted on April 20, 2009 at 7:20am 4 Comments

The wedding is over but my project are still going on. In the past weeks I've made gifts for guests, and even Erinn's veil. It was such a busy time. During all the rush I was able to make my swatch for the Cardigan KAL. I'm off to cast on sleeves this afternoon while recooperating and lounging in the easy chair. Here's my… Continue

*****Winding till I'm blue in the face

Posted on April 9, 2009 at 4:08am 5 Comments

Here is a shot of my wound yarn balls that I prepared for the Classic Line Cardigan. I thought I'd never get done winding this lace weight yarn. I started swatching this past weekend and will be glad to finish and finally start the sweater. I think the KAL is going to be fun. Even though we had snow in Ohio last week, the days that followed were bright blue skies with more than a hint of spring. The birds are up early each morning making all the noise… Continue

*****Spring 2009

Posted on April 3, 2009 at 4:30am 6 Comments

That's how I feel, like a Spring. The time since my last blog post has been filled with the makings of wedding plans for my daughter and now that date is rolling around in just a few more days. Life will return to normal and my quilting and knitting can become part of my daily routine again, which is currently a jumble of odd tasks as we prepare for the big day. The very day after the wedding I'm sure I'll be wondering....."what will we talk about… Continue

Just a note of good cheer and a picture of the finished socks.

*****Sunrise Sunset, take a potty break

Posted on April 19, 2008 at 5:22am 2 Comments

In the month of March I started to watch for the sun to rise early each morning. Our row of kitchen windows face the east and in the month of March the sun rises dead center over the field behind the house. Some mornings I'd lean against the kitchen cabinets, coffee cup in hand and just wait. In a matter of minutes that sunrise would be over but the winter was so long this year that I felt compelled to make sure the sun would warm the morning just as… Continue

Hi Debbi,

Wow--I finally logged onto the knitting community after not being on for a long long time and I saw your comment on my page! So I am writing now so you know I'm not rude -- just not logged on :-) I spend most of my knitting online time on ravelry. Anyway, I've finished a ton of socks and am now moving onto baby stuff since my sister is due in January -- can't wait!

Hi Debbi, Thanks for responding. I taught at Fairview until 2 years ago. I am good friends with Lin Ruggles that has worked in the basket shop at Sauders for about 10 years. :) When is that Fiber Festival at the Village? The neck warmer was extra nice in January when I made it. :) Did you check out my rare short needles for sale in my ShopIt app?

Yes, I have done some quilting. I just finished a tablerunner and a mini quilt. You would have to look them up at connectingthread.com. I'm also on that sight too. But lately I have been knitting alot. Right now I'm making a baby blanket. Have a great Mother's day!

Hi Debbie, so good to hear from you. Don't you just love the Continental style, it is so much faster. I went to my first 2009 Knitting Festival last month and I have never seen so much yarn in one place and they had some great classes as well. I can't wait for next year. In Oct I am going to teach a beginners class the Dutch House in Columbia, OH and it will be Continental Style. It is for our women's church retreat weekend and I am really looking forward to going. I am also going to start a group at our church this Fall for Knitting and Crocheting.

I finished the back of the green sweater for my husband and discovered the dye in the same ball had a darker shade of green. The lady I purchased it from was so upset because I had a lot of work in the cable pattern and she wanted me to remove the lighter shade and work backwards but I decided to use it as a learning experience and redo the back :(. Life goes on.

Have you been knitting much, how are you projects going? Have a great weekend. Jane

Yes, Ypsilanti, Michigan. The only other Ypsilanti I know of is in one of the Dakotas and was settled by people homesick for the Michigan city. I spent a year in Tiffin, Ohio, back in the 1980s and think fondly back to those days. Liz

Dear Debbie,
You certainly have a lot of conversations going on.
I really enjoy knitting socks also. Love the pic of your blue with your cat. I have not tried the knitting of two socks on one needle. (Is that what you meant?) Although I do knit two socks at a time. My preference are the wooden double pointed or the 12" circ.
I have finished the Sweater workshop by J. Fee. I can't remember where my sampler ended up. It was probably lost when we moved, eons ago, because someone couldn't figure out what it was, and threw it away or something! : )
Have you tried gloves yet? They are not as hard as you might think.

gosh i wonder what a widget is? i tried to up load some pics of my work but got sidetracked by knitting another pair...of socks...my most recent pair is from southwest trading company silk/wool blend with holographic sequens on the short cuff area...i did two inches of sequins in a 1x1 ribbing and then two inches of the yarn with no sequins...oh in bright red...i love adore red socks....(since im a birkenstock kind of girl, red socks give that flash of come hither (giggle) so that makes these socks the equivalent of high heels with straps around the ankle...
i really wonder about the fashion habits of sock knitters....what happens when you want to wear a dress?
or a mu mu like i do when i go tropical....
im thinking of filp flop socks with short cuffs and wild colors....to match the mu mus that i have been "fashioning" out of quilting cotton.....talk about bright colors....i especially love the batiks...
thanks for the invite....
i have been thinking about a blog
just got into raverly .....knittingpotter.....
i wonder if i am the only trans craftie going into knitting socks....perhaps i should say sockknittingpotter.

I just started classes last month to learn how to knit German style. The teacher is from Germany and believe me she knows her stuff. No scarf making in this class..we all started out with sweaters...which makes sense because we are paying to learn according to Inga!

Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I noticed you are in the NW Ohio area and thought we might be close. I live at the eastern border of Ohio, 40 miles north of Pittsburgh.
I just started knitting last winter but have not attempted socks yet so I decided to sign up for this group to get some tips. Hope to chat some time.
