High Fiber—Finishing, Fulling and Phones.

My favorite project for this past week is still my woven bag, now with lining and in use as my handbag:

There’s even room for a small knitting project and my iPad, but the bag itself isn’t heavy. The handles came from Joann’s. The homespun lining came from my fabric…

High Fiber—Happy Birthday, Daphne!

Today is Daphne's birthday! It's hard to believe it has already been two years!

 


Here's one of her new toys. It's a castle slide, just right for a little princess with an imagination and lots of energy. Baxter, the dog, enjoys watching her play on it, especially because it means she plays outdoors longer. Her little brother is…

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. It's a game, but it's also a way for a small child to increase his or her…

High Fiber—Countdown to Holidays

Another busy week! The mittens are done:



I adapted the pattern Mitones Iveños from Andean Folk Knits by Marcia Lewandowski. I changed the tip by using the round-toe decreases, because the thumb ended up in an awkward place. I dont know if I misread the pattern, but the thumbs stuck out at the sides instead of being on the side of…

High Fiber—A Visit to Sharon's Attic Quilt Shop

This scrumptious array of fabrics is what greets you when you enter Sharon's Attic Quilt Shop in Hillsboro, Oregon. The shop was just a close walk from DS2’s and DDIL2's home in Beaverton.



Here are some other shots of the nice selection inside the store:

High Fiber--Frantically Finishing and iPad Fanatic Fun!

This week has been busy! (So what else is new?)

There are presents to wrap and send off, more knitting and quilting to do (some of which I can't show you) and other preparations to make. We took the time to dress up the pups and mug for the camera, though.

The annual get together for the…

Snow, Snow, Snow...

As usual for this time of year, we're still getting snow! Here's something white I'm happy to see, though:





As you can see, im making good progress on the lace gown for Daphne's naming ceremony. I have nearly 2 1/2 months to finish it. It's a fun project, and is going well, now that I have sort of learned the pattern. You repeat a 34-st pattern across for four rows, repeat…

I love knitting Christmas items!

I've been on a Christmas kick lately. I Made the Falling Snow Stocking, found on Ravelry, with Wool of the Andes Bulky in Wine and Bare. I'm pretty proud of my 2nd "Color Work" item (if 2 color items don't count, I'm sorry for the use of the phrase).



I also got the Tidings of Joy kit and a few extra balls of Palette. I've done a few ornaments, but my favorites so far are the sweaters. This one is Ivy, Edamame, and Bare (I wanted White or an… Continue
