Tour de fleece 2016, so far

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

My Tour de Fleece goals this year were modest: 1) a fractal spinning project; 2) complete an unfinished spinning project. Given the volume I still have left of my chosen  YIP, I’m not overly optimistic about my chances, but I’m still going to give it a shot. I’m visiting my folks, so without any competing […]

Knitting again!

Saturday, December 12th, 2015

I’m knitting again! Huzzah! Hats are what I should probably be knitting, but since it’s been such a crazy mild winter (with the exception of a smallish ice storm after Thanksgiving that kept knocking out the power for a couple days)–I’m talking December days in the 60s!–it’s been hard to get to excited about hats. […]

5-minute baby overalls clothespin bag

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

Ahhh! Fiber School is over, everything’s back in order, and the buildout of Ron’s new tattoo shop is wrapping up. Now if the rain would just lay off for more than a day at a time and let my basement dry out, I could relax. I haven’t knit in forever and despite my rigorous culling, […]

Tick tick tick tick tick tick tick….

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Wait, that sounds like a bomb. I was going for timer. (But, you know, not the timer on a bomb. The regular kind.) Last night, Charlene was in the basement weighing wool in front of the TV, which means Fiber School preparations are officially underway! September is when I abandon the grand and never-realized plans […]

Daisy Cloche KAL starts today!

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Well, for me, tomorrow (spiritually tomorrow, as I’ve not yet gone to bed, but technically today). It’s 3am & I’m just getting to this. My productivity actually got the better of me (yay!) and kept me busy for much of today, although Sunday is supposed to be Fun Day, dedicated to goofing off. But when […]

Here I go!

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

While my vacation didn’t seem overly relaxing at the time, I think it did its job, because I’ve recently gotten a nice surge of  motivation and thrift. August is going to be about TCB and self-denial, which, I have to admit, are actually two of my favorite things. I’m starting a new 40 BAGS, and […]

Tour de Fleece, Days 7 – 9; and vacation!

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Before leaving for vacation, I managed to ply the last exhausted singles (2 x 4oz of Laura’s Pygoras Shetland) from my failed 2012 Tour de Fleece. My modest goal this year was simply to finish what I started back in 2012. What will it be? Who knows. The important thing is that it’s out of […]

Tour de Fleece 2014, Days 5-6

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Plied another comatose 2-year-old single from Tour de Fleece 2012. I’ll tell you what. Plying stagnant singles is no fun, but I’m glad to get this out of my spinning basket, and I’m pleased with the end product. From Hello Yarn “Flora,” a Yarn School colorway. About 200 yards. No idea yet what it will […]
