The April Sunshine Socks are finished and on my feet.
The pattern is "Sunshine" from Sock Innovation by Cookie A. Yarn Regia 4-fädig in "00017." I plan to make most of the socks from this…
This week saw the center of Pine Burr quilt finished.
Not too much else got done this week while I worked to put the blocks together. However, after all the work to paper-piece the blocks and larger cornerstones, it felt good to get it put together. This quilt is going to be way too big for my design…
The Johan Socks are finished and on my feet!
As mentioned in my March 23rd blog post, I made the bottom of the heels double-stranded. The yarn is…
Well, some of them included fats (fat quarters)...cut into 2.5" strips. But you could make all these with Jelly Rolls, the non-fattening kind.Continue
I finished the second boy bunny, this one for Soren.
He and Zachy's bunny have the same attire, although the bunnies look very different, so we won't get them mixed up at Christmas. Daphne's bunny is wearing Mary Janes, actually knitted as her feet. The two boy bunnies get Nikes (also…
Back to the question: A few months ago we discovered we had moths, originating in our Navajo rugs in the storeroom. While I was sad about…Continue
Chugging away on the Delectable Pathways quilt:
This is the last of three panels, and I only have two more flowers left to appliqué.
The Puyallup Socks are done and on my feet:…Continue
From Wisconsin, we drove 10 hours to Peru, Indiana, just north of Kokomo to visit DS1 and DDIL1.
DS1 and DDIL1 had her grandkids to visit, so it was a full house, with four adults, three kids and four dogs. The kids have grown up a lot since we saw them last. We visited the library in Peru to get…Continue
The first Waffle Scarf is coming along. I warped the loom for three, if things work out.
Of course, if I run out of weft (not likely) I can switch to a different yarn, but there should be enough warp for three. It's a waffle pattern normally used for dish towels. I found it on…Continue
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…Continue
As always after a trip, there's lots of laundry and cleaning to do. I managed to make some progress on my appliqué project, though.
Important things about Wyoming:
With the end of Tour de Fleece (TdF), most of the participants have moved on (or back) to other projects.
One of the projects I returned to was the pillow covers, the class project for my Craftsy class, “Floor Loom Weaving.” After the fabric was ready to take off the loom, the next step was to look…Continue
The Tour de Fleece (TdF) continues. My third “bump” of Full Circle Roving is more than half done. This is the first bobbin of "Carmel."
The second bobbin is on the wheel.
In Bunny Suit progress, the right leg is done. The left leg has been cast on and a couple of inches finished.…Continue
My friends and I have been finishing things this past week. Here's Janet's latest quilt top:
Wow! What a week! Monday we shopped the Memorial Day sale at Hancock Fabrics and got the fabric to recover the seat cushions and pillows for our porch furniture:
Progress on the Fiji sock!
I just returned from a weekend trip to Grand Junction, Colorado, to help register voters. It was about five hours each way, so there was lots of knitting time in the car. (It's amazing how much you can get done cooped up in the car.) The yarn is Knit Picks Glimmer in Fiji. The…
The body is almost finished. The nose is just resting on the appliqué. I have to sew it on and do the nostrils in reverse-appliqué, as I did for the eyes.…Continue
After circling the house for two weeks and unable to find a place to land, the Stork Delivery Service gave up and allowed the Easter Bunny to take over for an early Easter morning Delivery.
He arrived at 13 minutes after midnight on Easter morning. His weight was 8 lbs 4 oz and he measured 20.5 oz.…Continue
