High Fiber—Done With Sundance, Back to Fiber Fun!

The official Sundance Film Festival is over for this year.

DH and I still have one volunteer shift to do tonight. After the festival is over, Sundance puts on two free screenings of one or two of the best films. We're working that. Then it's all over for another year. While watching the lobby…

High Fiber—The Sundance Knitter

Sundance has taken up a lot of my time this week. We start each shift with a meeting. Here are some of my fellow volunteers at the meeting.

Sunday was especially time-consuming. The last film Sunday night was three hours long, which meant I got home at nearly 2:00 AM! I have seen three…

High Fiber—Fast Forward to February

The Sundance Film Festival is over. The celebs have left town, and only the skiers are left. It was fun volunteering, especially with such great fellow volunteers, like Bev (my supervisor):



We've seen some great films. To check them out, see the Sundance website.

I worked long hours, and even though I took my knitting, I didn't get as much other stuff done. On my day…

High Fiber—More Baby Projects

Since my last blog post, I have started two new knitting projects and made a start on Daphne's "I-spy" quilt.



If you aren't familiar with this quilting tradition, the idea is to use lots of fabrics that depict objects a child might be familiar with: animals, foods, toys, flowers, etc. You tell the child, "I spy a (name of object)" and let them find it in the quilt.

High Fiber--High on Sundance, Knitting and Quilting!

What a busy week! My Vintage Stitchers group met right in the middle of Sundance!

Sundance volunteers at break time

High Fiber--Films, Fans, Fortune...and Fiber

Ta-da! The La Boheme Cardi is done! Here's the back:



...and the front:





This is my first adult-size sweater using fiber I dyed and spun myself. I Navajo-plied the spun Corriedale and knit the cardi in the round using EZ's percentage system, with a steek. I adapted a friend's Scandinavian yoke pattern chart, so there would only be two colors per round.
