High Fiber—Adorableness

Get ready for adorableness.

Georgette made these booties using a kit she bought during their recent trip to New Zealand. 

We met for Common Threads at Margareth's new place. She has moved in with her fiancée. The house is really nice. …

High Fiber—Happy Endings

This week brought this wonderful book into my life, Tudor Roses (2013 edition) by Alice Starmore.

It's a reworking of the 1998 book of the same name, but with the sweaters…

High Fiber—The Groundhog Lied!

We drove through the rain this week to reach Vintage Stitchers, which met on Thursday.

We had lots of show-and-tell. Here's Carol's 1600 quilt. Here's the backing.…

High Fiber—In the Bleak Midwinter

Now that the film festival is over, it's time for lots of snow. It's a good time to stay indoors and quilt or knit. 

My "wow" for this week has to be Julie's Double Wedding Ring quilt, which she designed for her parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Julie used pillow cases for the photos because of the…

High Fiber—Back to Whatever is "Normal"

Lynda has finished her Dogwood Blossoms!

She's the first one in our group of four or so to finish it. She wore it to our Common Threads meeting on Thursday. Mine is close to finished (has been for a long time), and I plan to get it done during the Ravellenic Games. 

Here is the…

High Fiber—Done With Sundance, Back to Fiber Fun!

The official Sundance Film Festival is over for this year.

DH and I still have one volunteer shift to do tonight. After the festival is over, Sundance puts on two free screenings of one or two of the best films. We're working that. Then it's all over for another year. While watching the lobby…

High Fiber—The Sundance Knitter

Sundance has taken up a lot of my time this week. We start each shift with a meeting. Here are some of my fellow volunteers at the meeting.

Sunday was especially time-consuming. The last film Sunday night was three hours long, which meant I got home at nearly 2:00 AM! I have seen three…

High Fiber—Confessions of an Obsessive Project Starter

I'm really, really, trying to finish up some UFOs before starting any new projects. However, with two grandsons coming up on second birthdays, I'm under the gun to make two I-spy quilts. 

This week I started cutting out 4.5" squares for both quilts. So far, I have 31 cut for each. I need 25 more. I…

High Fiber—Holiday Fun, Part Deux

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…

High Fiber— Holiday Fun, Part 1

We had a great Christmas visit in Wisconsin.

It was a white Christmas, and when it wasn't too cold, we had some play time.

The presents were lovely. For example, here's my Fabric Haul, part one. (More coming during a shopping trip to Kokomo/Indianapolis.)…

High Fiber—Ready for Christmas!?

Soren's Green Pastures cardigan is progressing nicely. It should be ready for Christmas or shortly after. 

It doesn't look too different from the same stage of Daphne's, although it's a size smaller. …

High Fiber—Cold and Colds, Mishaps and Repairs

It's been a hard week in the mountains of Utah. The weather was part of it. 

That was taken Wednesday. We had several more inches over the weekend. I had to turn off the alerts on my weather app, because it kept waking me up at night and annoying me during the daytime. (As if I couldn't just…

High Fiber—Rolling Over and Over in My Gravy.

What a week! Soren and his entourage came for Thanksgiving, since we won't be able to be together for Christmas this year. 

I spent most of the week cooking and cleaning. The kids arrived Wednesday night, and we had Thanksgiving dinner early in the evening on Thanksgiving. The dinner…

High Fiber—High in the Clouds

It was a busy week, as usual, The little rug from my weaving class came off the loom. It's almost finished. I still need to decide the treatment for the fringe. Here's the front. 

The back is the same as the front, except that the colors are reversed, and the clasps show up. You might remember from last week…

High Fiber—Warped in Mind, Body and Looms

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…

High Fiber—Winter Already?

On Wednesday a snowstorm hit. Not some wimpy October snow that melts as soon as it hits the ground, no!

This was a regular, full-blown snowstorm.

We went out early in the day for a get-together with friends we met during the presidential campaign last year. We went to Kneader's at Kimball Junction for breakfast and caught up on…

High Fiber—Bare Bones Dismantle

Halloween is nearly upon us! Was it worth waiting for?

I'll let you know next week. Something that I've been waiting for...although I still have some meat on my bones...was definitely worth it. Remember when I got the loom for my birthday, and we had to wait "for the snow to melt" to move it around…
