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
It's a pair of socks for me, out of Knit Picks Stroll Glimmer in "Fiji." The Dogwood Blossoms sweater is too difficult to work on with Miss Daphne in the room. She had to take each ball of yarn out of the bag, and a couple of times pulled the sts out of my needles. The socks are easier to hold onto and walk around…Continue
The Bees' Knees cardigan fit just the way I wanted: a little big, so she can wear it for a long time. The socks fit about the same way:
We had knitting last week at Rob's lovely home:
This week we had Common Threads, in spite of the early arrival of snow:
I'm going to card this with my Shetland wool (and later the Romney and some KP Wool of the Andes spinning fiber) to use for socks this winter.
The other was a lovely shawl from a dear friend who lives far away. I…
Sock Summit 2011 was great! I got to meet some good friends from among the wonderful people at the Knit Picks Knitting Community.
The event was held at the Oregon Convention Center in downtown Portland. (Where else would they hold a sock-knitting convention but in a building adorned with knitting needles?)
There were some wonderful classes. Here I am with Mary Scott Huff, who…Continue
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!…
I took the photo while still in the car. I don't have access to wireless internet here, so I can't transfer my photos. (I did this one while in the motel yesterday.) Next week I'll have…Continue
I know I frogged at least 80 rows, so that was a lot of penalty laps! I'm on the last pattern change, though, so I think this might be doable (finishing before the Ravelympics are done), barring further mistakes! It's the…Continue
