I'm making use of the new LED light for my Featherweight, which is back out of its case and on the job.
The piecing of the first quilt top of the new year, "Seeing Stars," is almost done. Here's the photo…
Common Threads met at Wasatch & Wool on Thursday.
It was inspiring, sitting with our knitting while surrounded by lovely yarns of all types. Margaux provided us with some delicious munchies.
Lynda wore the hat she just finished:…
I'm almost back to normal, and finally getting some knitting done. My Sandy Beach Scarf is coming along.
The orange stitch marker shows the halfway point in the length. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay…Continue
This was the week we said goodbye to visiting grandkids.
When I took Soren and his family to the airport I learned that he didn't have a hat that fit, so I dug through my stash when I got back and found some Swish DK in "Dusk." I CO immediately.
Christmas day at our house started out like this:
It execrated from there. In a word: Bedlam!
The day after Christmas is my birthday. Rather than go out to breakfast as we usually do, we ate at home and the ladies went out for pedicures. Miss Daphne got her first pedicure.…Continue
Here's wishing you all peace on Earth.
Vintage Stitchers met on Thursday for the annual holiday potluck at Rebecca's. Barbara commented that we've been meeting now for ten years. A few members have stopped coming or moved away, but most of us still meet twice a month.
As usual, we had lots of…
Woven scarf finished.Continue
Rocky's Sheep Sweater is finished.
I used the same pattern as the one I made for him previously, only with a different stranded pattern, using this time the sheep motif from "The March of the…Continue
Wasatch & Wool just opened up near me, about five minutes by car.
It's the first yarn shop in Park City in many years that wasn't in a corner of another store. We have had a Michael's for several years, but if you wanted…Continue
It was a great week for quilting. Common Threads met at Janet's, and we had a variety of projects.
Ellen is working on the second block for her Home Sweet Home quilt. She isn't sure if she'll make all…Continue
The first snowblowers of the season were heard Saturday morning.
Vintage Stitchers met on Thursday at Diane's. Carol brought her Kaffe Fassett quilt, ready for border:…Continue
It might have been a hare-brained scheme to make four bunnies, but I finished the third boy bunny, this one for Johan.
Here's what he looks like without his little kimono. He's wearing garter-stitch booties and soaker, actually knitted as part of the legs and body.…
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…
The girl bunny is finished, although I have plans for a sweater to go over her sun dressContinue
Common Threads met at Ginny's. Julie is almost done with her Girl Fox from Little Cotton Rabbits:
She has also finished the head of the elephant.
I started my first project from this designer (the…
Ta-da! Mr. F. Is finished and waiting for his clothes.
I have one sleeve of his jammies (Union suit?) almost finished, but I've been hand-quilting, as you will see below.
However, while we're on knitting, I thought you would enjoy seeing Joanie's seal mum and…
In place of my regular blog post this week, I decided to hold sort of a celebration of life for my dear friend, who passed away early Thursday after a prolonged illness.
I invited a few people to share their memories of Susan. If you have memories to share, you can add them in…Continue
My Mr. F. is moving along.
He's still headless, but at least he has arms now. They look rather flabby, though. I need to take him to Silver Sneakers with me so he can lift some weights.
Mr. F. has been a major UFO since 2009, when I got two arms and one leg done (almost) and quit. Now he's…
The quilt for Habitat for Humanity's Overall Ball fundraiser is coming along. I finished putting the blocks together with sashing, corner stones and a border.
This involved a consult with Janet and another one with Julie, as we were trying to get by with fabrics on hand. I was scrambling, but…
