Topsy-Turvy

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Last week, I decided to search out all my neglected fiber and get it all made into combed tops at Zeilinger. It’s kinda hard to let go of a lot of it. There’s a lot of special colors and fibers I’m going to have to blend together, because their tops minimums are kinda high. It’s […]

Fiber Destash + Mermaid Sweater

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

(Whew! I had a little WordPress meltdown, but it looks like we’re all sorted now, hurrah!) I’ve realized my fiber stash is just too crazy to tally. I don’t know what I was thinking. It’s not in discrete, compact, easily weighed and tallied parcels like yarn. There are a million sundry bags, balls, batts, containers, […]

Linen Mystery + January Sweaters

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

Last week, I finally finished & shipped Shannon the item I designed for her upcoming alt fiber book. Here’s a shot of it before washing & blocking. I doubt I’m allowed to show real pictures of it (and besides, I forgot to photograph the FO before shipping), but it’s awfully cute! Knitting linen kind of […]

Yarn crisis + new batts

Monday, November 26th, 2007

As you can see, I’m definitely lacking the necessary yarn to finish this sweater. I’m hoping Vera can spin me up some more. Otherwise, I’ll need to spin something suitable for contrasty trim. I’ve got several rovings that might be good candidates, but a 2-ply sport isn’t my typical yarn. I’m more a 2-ply worsted-to-bulky […]

Twinkle, Twinkle!

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

I really love that Potter Craft put out my book, because they publish some of the rockinest knit books. I’m constantly feeling like an inadequate middle child when I see their new release lists. But on the upside, if I ask nice, they give them to me! Presents! Yesterday, I got Twinkle’s Big City Knits. […]

Half a Pound o’ Handspun!

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

Sugarfoot is recovering from illness, so I’ve been holing up in my room with her and various craft projects. I’m keeping her separated from the other cat so that I can neurotically monitor her food and water intake, which is vexingly low, especially since I’m pretty ignorant about cats–but I called the emergency vet for […]

Happy accident. I hope.

Sunday, June 10th, 2007

So, I’m working on this new pattern with some self-striping handspun I made. It was supposed to be one thing. But I’m knitting it in the round on a needle that is really too short to hold it, so I don’t notice until 3 inches in that I’ve twisted the stitches. So instead of ripping […]

Hooray, yarn!

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

With Prom ’07 behind me and the Naughty Needles Burlesque far enough off to give me the luxury of thoughtful knitting and reknitting my less pleasing items, I think I’m going to take a little break and make something for MEMEME! But what? I got these scrumpies last month from Spincycle Yarns, and they’re just […]
