Earthy and Esoteric

These two words that have been directed towards me this week with reference to my fibery pursuits. At my LYS earlier this week when I bought a needle, a Dale pattern book, 2oz of black Jaggerspun Zephyr Wool-Silk, and a a hank of Opal handpaint, the cashier said that she loved that I was “buying […]

Winding

September is winding down. This means: I am winding off balls from my Peace Fleece cones for Rogue. The weather is starting to be sweater friendly – at least in the mornings. I am ramping up on new projects and trying to clear out the WiPs. It’s Wednesday, but instead of a normal WiP Wednesday […]

Spinning and Some Other Stuff

I feel a little lost without any big projects on my plate right now. Sure, Rogue is just around the corner, but that doesn’t help me right this second! So, I’ve been spinning a lot, as I said I would. I’ve really been enjoying it the most I ever have, and I’m doing much better. […]

Ahh… Better

pretty red stuff Well, I said I would spin and sure enough, I did. It’s not the best I’ve spun on the wheel, but it is the quickest I’ve spun up an ounce and a half (couple of hours). I think I am spinning better in terms of technique than I was before… nevermind that […]

Klara is Done?

me, goofy and blurry, in a klara that is too big It’s hard to tell in these pictures, but I can’t find my tripod so I couldn’t take any decent pictures of myself in Klara that showed exactly how huge she is. The top fits perfectly over my shoulders and chest, but the bottom is […]

Halfway Through Klara Seaming

I started seaming Klara mid-afternoon. I seamed the sleeves to the body, and now I am ready to seam the body and sleeves, then decide which side will be the front and seam the v-neck a bit. Except, as DH put it, “Klara is big enough for me — as a midriff.” She is huge. […]

Klara Knitting Done!

Ging apparently wants a Noro sweater too As I planned, my knitting on Klara is done! She is soaking in some cool Eucalan-infused water currently and I hope to block her tonight (though I fear this may be wishful thinking). As a warning to anyone working with silk garden — don’t tug on your ends […]
