The Fiber Artist

Wow, that sounds pretentious doesn't it. But it is the name of my company, so I decided to use it. This is where I will keep a record of works in progress in the hope that it will result in more productivity. It will also give me a place to ramble on about my life, so that maybe later I will remember what happened in ___ (fill in day, month, year of your choice).

Still Socks

More socks for Carl since making more is the only way to get him to wear a different pair. Absolutely I have created a monster.

I have both of the 2nd pair past the waste yarn for the heel. So these should be finished by tomorrow.

Also working on Sierra's birthday socks which is above the waste yarn on the first sock but the 2nd only has it's toe done, and I need to go back to the 2nd and get it up to the heel.

The pattern that Sierra picked is kinda/sorta Feather and Fan and very easy, but the On Line yarn that I am using is fine fingering yarn, so is being knit on 00 needles, and is taking a while, but I have until the first of November. So no worries.
I have started washing sweaters, and have re-blocked Christopher's FLAK which is now long enough and is still plenty big. So he is much happier. I guess I zoned when I was blocking it the first time and blocked it short and wide instead of tall and thin, which was not good.

Not to self: I am short and wide every one else is
tall and thin, must remember this!

I am still working on beadwork and am knitting the last repeat so finished soon.

    Hmm, you know, there's a certain truth to this though. I keep underestimating how tall and thin my husband is (though I got a lovely sweater of that miscalculation!)

    Shame cotton doesn't block better. ;)
