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!

This week I had my First Ladies Class at Davidene's. We made the Eleanor Roosevelt Block:



The book is Eleanor Burns' Tales of First Ladies. I love the fabrics Davidene picked for this project, and the designs in the book as well, but I'm not crazy about the piecing methods.…

High Fiber—Heddles and Puddles

Posted on May 25, 2015 at 8:30am 8 Comments

Well, I'm finally, finally, back to weaving. On Tuesday I rethreaded the heddles on my floor loom, using the warp that was already on the loom left over from a previous project.





I had to change the tie-up, too, to weave what I wanted, but it was easier than I thought it would be. I'm using…

High Fiber—Spinning My Wheel or Spinning My Wheels?

Posted on May 18, 2015 at 8:30am 8 Comments

My mother had an expression she used when she felt like she had worked all day and hadn't accomplished anything. She said she felt as if she were spinning her wheels (and not the kind of wheels that produce yarn. That's how my week has been.





However, I did get some work done on my First Ladies Quilt. The…

High Fiber—Done With Winter, For Now....

The weather has warmed up a bit, and our bulbs are emerging.

We also have daffodils, as do our neighbors. The ski resorts closed after Sunday's operation. Soon they will gear up for taking mountain bikers up the hill to ride down. DGD1 brought home her snowboard and boots…

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.
