High Fiber—Off With Her Head!

Like many of the victims of Henry VIII, I seem to have misplaced my head. I'm having so much fun with the Mary Tudor cardigan, I can't put it down.

Mary Tudor was the sister of Henry VIII and did not lose her head but led an adventurous life and apparently died of natural…

High Fiber—New Beginnings

This week has been crazy! Besides trips to eye doctor, dentist and Apple store for a new iPad, I made a trip to Shepherd's Bush and Needlepoint Joint in Ogden with friends from Common Threads. 

Shepherd's Bush has an entry way full of projects. …

High Fiber—Cold Weather, Good Life!

Snow arrived in Park City last week. That's Sunny, checking out the snow on the front deck.

We usually get a light snowfall in September. This year it was unusual, though. We had five  days of  light to medium snowfall with some accumulation on rooftops and shady areas. It's gone now, but the temperatures have stayed…

High Fiber—Early Snows.

Official winter is still 38 days away, but we have it already. I have to console myself with memories of fall colors, like this custom-dyed fiber:



It's called "Autumn in Park City." The fiber was dyed by AlohaBlu inspired by a photo I took of local fall colors. You can find her Etsy shop here.



The photo that inspired the colors is in my September 26th blog…

High Fiber--Elevating Fiber to a Higher Purpose

The snow is melting, as you can see by the lower level of the pups' snow pile:

 



We will get more snow before spring...and after it as well. Soon there will be days when I can take my spinning wheel out to the deck to work in the sun.



In… Continue

High Fiber--Fluffy and Cold!

We got another blizzard, starting Saturday night. Here's what it looked like midday on Sunday:

 

This is the time of year to be concerned with those less fortunate. Do you carry a packet of nonperishable food in your car? You never know when you might come across someone in need. Our Squeeky…

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…

High Fiber--Elevating Knitting and Quilting to a Whole New Level!

The rush to finish projects is on! Here's the scarf just finished Saturday:





It's 100% alpaca, so should be nice and warm! It's for a family member who might see this, so I can't say, but I'll try to post a photo later on its new owner.



I have never made so many presents for friends and relatives as this…

High Fiber--Quilting and Spinning at Elevation

Vintage Stitchers met last week. Here you see Rebecca (left) and Barbara working away on their quilts.







Barbara picked up her diamond quilt from Julie, who had done the machine quilting on it. (I love how she used a plaid in the borders!)







I was sewing the binding on the Turning Twenty wedding quilt.… Continue

High Fiber: Fun with Fiber, Friends and Fur!

Of course, I have been spinning away! It's a wonder I'm not dizzier than I am!





Another dark chocolate Corriedale is finished, along with more of the dyed Corriedale in aqua on my KP Turkish drop spindle, and the Ashford merino and silk on my Golding.



Rocky and Sunny met the new neighbor, a golden retriever puppy temporarily named "Puppy."





Progress is happening on DH's… Continue

High Fiber, Happy Memories!

We got back from Texas last night, after a wonderful week. I'm sure you all know about the wonderful interfaith wedding that took place on July 31st! No, the other one. The one involving our DD!…

High Fiber, Spinning Out of Control!

Several of us have been participating in the Tour de Fleece. Today is a day of rest, so I can type up my blog and do a few other things. Here's what I've been working on:







The fiber is Corriedale, a breed of sheep. The dark chocolate color and white are both natural. The blue, orange and taupe are dyed by me with Koolaid and a little food coloring, about a year ago.… Continue

High Fiber and Computer Lows

My gimpy laptop has died a terrible death. Not that I'm sad about it, but more on that later. Here's what I've been spinning:





This was the Corriedale fiber I dyed using Koolaid and a few drops of food coloring. I'm finishing up the Taupe fiber now. I'll try to post a photo as soon as I'm done plying. You can see the taupe in the upper right-hand corner of the top photo. I'm…

No Time to Blog!

Holy spinning wheel, Batman! It's Tour de Fleece time! I've been spinning away on my Kromski Sonata, spinning this fiber:

I joined Teams Kool Kromski, KP and Rookie, and I have spun for at least a little while each day since the TdF started on Saturday. This is the fiber I dyed last year with Koolaid and black food coloring, and I have some natural white and chocolate brown to go with it. I finished spinning the 4 oz. of blue…

Everything But the Kitchen Sync!

Today is the 1-week anniversary of my relationship with my cute and handy iPad.





It's receiving a nice anniversary present from me--a protective carry bag, which you can see in the photo above. I had some WotA Bulky left in "Hazelnut," and also some of the same yarn in "Oregano" in my…

Padcost!

So you know where I've been, here is my new KP work station--





There are still some things I haven't figured out, but now I have a new computer AND an e-book reader, which I've been wanting for some time. I can't do anything that requires a CD, and I have to load my audiobooks from Audible onto the PC laptop I've been using in order to sync to the iPad. They also didn't have…
