It has NOT been a quiet week here. First, there were the Sundance shifts, but I had some knitting time during some of them, so here's my progress:





I'm on the first sleeve, but this photo was taken before the Super Bowl game, so it's a little further along…

I'm making use of the new LED light for my Featherweight, which is back out of its case and on the job.

High Fiber—Out and About

Common Threads met at Wasatch & Wool on Thursday.

High Fiber—Goodbyes

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.

I'm using…

High Fiber—Winding Down the Year

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.…

High Fiber—Giving Thanks for...Local! Yarn! Shop!

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…

High Fiber—Hare-brained Scheme

It might have been a hare-brained scheme to make four bunnies, but I finished the third boy bunny, this one for Johan.

High Fiber—The Last Bunny...by a Hare.

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…
