High Fiber—The Skies of Roswell

It's Like the Skies of Roswell! Except this is a different kind of UFO.

My Yei Figures Bag is finished except for adding the beads to the necklaces and bolos.

I decided to line it with some nice quilting fabric.…

High Fiber—UFO Sightings

It's another week for UFOs. Janet's Sipalu Bag is finished!

Janet started this bag in 2008. She thinks of herself as a quilter, not a knitter, but she has the talent, learns new techniques quickly…

High Fiber—Back to Whatever is "Normal"

Lynda has finished her Dogwood Blossoms!

She's the first one in our group of four or so to finish it. She wore it to our Common Threads meeting on Thursday. Mine is close to finished (has been for a long time), and I plan to get it done during the Ravellenic Games. 

Here is the…

High Fiber—Ready for Christmas!?

Soren's Green Pastures cardigan is progressing nicely. It should be ready for Christmas or shortly after. 

It doesn't look too different from the same stage of Daphne's, although it's a size smaller. …

High Fiber—Prelude to Christmas.

I can't believe that a week from today will be Christmas Eve!

The realization is sinking in, though. We had Sundance volunteer sign-up on Monday, in preparation for the festival in January. Another reminder was holiday parties have been taking place with greater frequency. It's great to see old friends and relatively new but very special friends as…

High Fiber—Coming Down the Home Stretch

The big news on the fiber front this week is my Dogwood Blossoms. The steeks are done.

In the photo, you can just see the front is cut open. The armscye steeks are also cut. I used my sewing machine to sew on each side of the cutting line before I took the scissors to it. I'm getting pretty…

High Fiber—Canvassing, Cabinets and Cutting

Common Threads met on Thursday at Jean's. She has made progress on her blanket made of leftover sock yarn:

While we were there, a couple of moose paid a visit.…

High Fiber—Talented Friends and Craftsmen

Common Threads met at Julie's on Thursday. Julie had this Halloween quilt on the wall:

The blocks were pieced, but the "appliqué" squares are cheater cloth. (For non-quilters, cheater cloth is cloth printed to look like pieced or appliquéd fabric.)…

High Fiber—Sampling Cross-stitch.

We had a rare treat at Vintage Stitchers this week:

Carol picked up this great cross-stitch sampler in a silent auction. It's worked on evenweave. What a lot of work must have gone into it! Here's a closeup:…

High Fiber—Vintage, Volts and Votes!

This week was Vintage Stitchers. We met at Rebecca's.

High Fiber—Autumn in the Air

We haven't had any snow yet, but fall is definitely in the air. I'm hoping to get my Dogwood Blossoms sweater done in time to wear this winter.

Winter comes early in Northern Utah, especially above 7,000'! We often have a light snowfall in September, so it won't be long now.

After last week's…

High Fiber—Dogs and Demos

It has been a busy week. So busy, in fact, that I forgot to put my knitting up and left it in a chair. DH put it on the floor. 

Sunny decided she could improve on my version of the Dogwood Blossoms…

High Fiber—Life Gets Peachy.

This week brought another trip to Colorado, which meant...more knitting time!
 
 
I had volunteered to drive, but we had plenty of other volunteers, so I got to be a passenger, allowing me to finish 1.5" on the body of my Dogwood Blossoms Cardigan. Will I have it done in…

High Fiber—Home Again and Looking Forward to Fiber Fun!

While some of you were reading my blog post for last week, DH, the pups and I were exploring the Oregon coast from Seaside to Florence.

We camped near the ocean at Nehalem Bay, Newport and Florence, one night each. It was great to see the ocean again, and Rocky and Sunny enjoyed being…

High Fiber—Back To Normal?

The two days it took to get home from Indiana provided great knitting time!

 

I made good progress on the Dogwood Blossoms sweater, about 1" of the pattern. I put it on two circs, so you can see…

High Fiber—Daphne Days

Daphne is fascinated by her new quilt.



It's the I Spy quilt I made for her. It was a special present for her, and the train quilt is for her brother, Zachary, who is due to arrive any time now, which is why we're in Wisconsin. She knew who we were, thanks to Skype.



We've been doing things with her. Daphne is such an angel, complete with halo!



Grandpa's 'puter is…

High Fiber—Back to Something For Me!

You may remember this quilt I was making for Daphne.

I got it back from Julie, the professional quilter (Julie Thorum, thorum@xmission.com), and just finished sewing on the binding. It's an I Spy quilt. Each square has a picture of something she can identify and name. Julie quilted it…

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…
