About Me:
Knits, quilts, spins, weaves, hikes and snowshoes with poodles Rocky and Sunny. Learned to knit in 1950! Addicted to socks, and participated in Sock Wars III as "Sox Pox." Started spinning in December 2008 and participated in the Ravelympics in 2010 and Tour de Fleece in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Went to Sock Summit in 2011. Now I'm weaving and have a floor loom! This is my favorite website!

A Fond Farewell

Posted on April 12, 2016 at 4:46pm 4 Comments

Does anyone not know that the Knitting Community is closing? It's so sad, but there is life after the Knitting Community. You can find us over on Ravelry at The Frog Prince and his Knitting Community Orphans, a Ravelry group/forum. We have been transferring tips and tricks posted here to that location and have threads for most of the things we discussed here. We will be adding more.…


A Cozy Nest

As you know, this social website is closing, although Knit Picks lovely fibers, yarns, notions, books and other toys we enjoy will still be available and the store open for business.

As sad as that is, all is not lost. We now have a cozy nest for "orphans" of the Knitting Community over on Ravelry here:…

There is life after the Knitting Community. In case you missed it, we have a new Ravelry group: "The Frog Prince and His Knitting Community Orphans."

I hope you will come find us there.

As I'm not posting my blog here anymore, you can find it on Quilt With Us, …


All Good Things--

Hi, folks! Well, this has been a week. I'm not posting my blog here today, but the exact same thing (I promise!) can be found on Quilt With Us and Blogger. There's some knitting, as there almost always is, but also a message about the impending end of our favorite website and the search…


High Fiber—New Inspirations

Vintage Stitchers met at Barbara’s on Thursday. She showed us this great Dresden Plate quilt top:

She had a quilt pattern that had big, empty squares in it. She substituted the Dresden Plate blocks for the big squares. What an interesting setting! Carol also had a finished quilt…


High Fiber—Topping Off

A couple of weeks ago this pattern fell into my cart in the Ravelry store.

First, about the shoes Dolly is wearing with this outfit: Someone on Ravelry saw my black-and-white oxfords and tried to order…


High Fiber—Taking the Leap

Posted on February 29, 2016 at 8:30am 9 Comments

You may remember from last week that I had designed a simple doll dress (Everyday Play) using self-striping yarn.

The design now has a jacket to go with it. You can find it here.

Dolly’s version is a little…


High Fiber—The Pitter-patter of Little Patterns

I’ve published a pattern on Ravelry, the first I’ve actually uploaded myself.

It’s for a doll, hence the “little.” Here’s the back:…


High Fiber—It’s a Whirl

Posted on February 15, 2016 at 8:30am 21 Comments

Last weekend’s Spin Along resulted in some interesting yarn:

The roving (fiber) was AlohaBlu’s Targhee "Saturated Spring,” 2 oz. The result is more or less DK-worsted. I got 108 yds, Navajo-plied to show off…


High Fiber—Groundhogs, Wheels and Bowls

Last Monday the American Girl Knitters Ravelry group started its February knit along (KAL).

I'm so glad you liked your package! It was a lot of fun to pick out items for you. Know that the sentiments come from everyone here at KP, including our director Alison!

I don't have any poodles personally, but I hav had the blessing of working with them. I live on a ranch where my main fiber sources are my Rambouillet sheep, the lifeblood of west Texas.
