High Fiber--Sisters, Spinning and Swimming

 

Today you will get to read more about our vacation in Oregon, including the quilt show at Sisters on July 9th.

 

This was my favorite, but there were a number of quilts that were close to beating this one out! On top of that, some of the ladies from…

High Fiber—Big Events!

As if the wedding a week ago wasn't enough, the days that followed included a variety of fiber events that place high on what would be my bucket list.





Tuesday, Eevi Emminger, founder of Mitts of Steal, and I went to the Beaverton Fresenius Clinic to deliver fingerless mitts to patients there.







Wednesday, new DIL and I went to Crafts Americana to visit the office of Knit… Continue

Wedding Day!

I'm busy with family this week, but here are some shots from the wedding. For you Miss Daphne fans, here's a shot of her as flower girl, coming down the aisle with the bride's sister, Alyssa, who was matron of honor.



Here's the happy couple:



It was a beautiful day, it didn't rain in Western Oregon, and everything came off without a…

High Fiber--Spring at Last! Not Kidding This Time!

The pups are enjoying their walks:

If they look a little scruffy, it's because they were due to go to the groomer today. Poodle fiber, spinners?

We certainly have had enough rain and snow to last us! The seasonal streams are flowing full force, and the snow is disappearing. There is none left in our yard.…

High Fiber--Taking the Group to Spring

The visit to Gardner Village was the big event of the week. Since spring wouldn't come to Park City...

 

 

...we took the group to where spring had arrived. Seven members of Common Threads packed into two cars and drove…

High Fiber--Well, Maybe Not Spring. Or Maybe Spring. Maybe?

It has been switching back and forth between snow and rain every day for a week. At least I have my knitting to keep me warm!

Before my DSIL passed away in October, she gave me her one and only UFO: an Aran Cardigan she had started for her DH, using wool from Kilronan on the island of Inish Mor,…

High Fiber--Spring at Last!!!

The Crocuses (Croci?) are coming up!

 

That thing that looks like an iceberg floating on the street is...an iceberg. Actually, it's snow DH threw into the street to melt.

"The Shawl" is done, blocked and photographed:…

High Fiber--Spring at Last????

The front deck is getting more sun all the time. You can see that Rocky got to the sunny spot first.

 

 

The snow is melting...melting...melting, but we're supposed to get more tonight. Spring at last? Not until the pups can go out in the backyard without being able to walk over the fence…

High Fiber—Tulip Time!

But not for us! (Sigh!)



The leaves are starting to peek through, but we won't have the flowers for another month. Still, we have beauties to enjoy, so we can't complain!



I finished the latest mitts for Mitts of Steal. If anyone wants to help, please contact me. I'm currently collecting fingerless mitts for another dialysis clinic in Beaverton. I'll deliver them when I'm there in July. The cuffs need to be no longer than 3" and…

High Fiber—Special Delivery!

Daphne needs an Easter chick for her first Easter, so I made her one.



I will send it on its way today. Ravelry members can see how I did it here. I used Swish DK in Bare and Di.Vé Cipria in yellow, held together, and Stroll fingering weight yarn to embroider the eyes and beak. It's about 2 1/2" high. Daphne should be able to hold it in her hand…

High Fiber—Across the Snowy Wasteland...

...And onto the frozen trundra! That's how I feel after my first week back from Death Valley! We've had snow almost every day this week!





I don't mind, except when I have to drive someplace. Like taking Sunny to see Dr. Rick, who discovered bladder stones! He managed to… Continue

High Fiber--Finishing Fiber Projects

Our Common Threads group had a small attendance last week. 







This is the time of year many Park City residents leave town. The skiing is starting to decline, the snow is starting to melt and opportunities for recreation start to dry up...or wet up might be a better term. (We call it "Mud Season." I'll let you guess why.)



However, Lynda and I showed up at Karan's house, Lynda sporting her crocheted vest made from the yarn… Continue

High Fiber--Fiber Fun Continues

When we left the Vintage Stitchers they were showing off their projects, but we only had a taste. Now let's see what they have been up to. First, here's a look at Joanie's scarf:





Even though it has a cable, it's reversible! (The cable is made with 1 X 1 ribbing.) Julie finished Lexi's Wallaby sweater in time for her first birthday:





Her "I Spy" quilt is almost done, but she's… Continue

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.

High Fiber--Goodbye to Sarak, Hello More Fiber Fun!

Sarak and I visited the Utah Olympic Park in Park City this week.





It was the venue for bobsled, luge, skeleton (visible behind us) and ski-jumping events during the 2002 Winter Olympics. Here are the two big ski jumps:





After viewing the runs and jumps there, we moved on to the Post Office for a tearful goodbye. (For more about Sarak and The Knit Wits Podcast, see previous…
