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).

Let's See If I Remember How This Is Done

Two months have flown by, don't really know what I have done except, I have gotten some knitting done.

I have gotten the pieces of Caleb's Lizard sweater almost finished, I have to lengthen the back a few rows. Then finish the embroidery and and the embellishments.

And I have gotten the back of Mark's Raccoon sweater almost knitted, and then I can start the front which will be the same pattern with the raccoon superimposed over it, which may be a case of patting my head and rubbing my stomach,
trying to follow 2 charts at once. We will see how this works.

I have finished the knitting and the sewing together of Rayne's Flowers and Bugs Sweater. I still have all of the embellishments and have to weave in the ends and find some buttons.

This has been lots of fun doing the stranded knitting for Flowers and Bugs and the Raccoon' back of the Lizard' is stranded but the front is all intarsia. I have not figured out how to do the stranded - intarsia - stranded patterns but I will work out something.
I do need to get started on the embroidery of the sweaters so that I am not having to do that to get then in the mail. I have posted a picture of the inside of Flowers and Bugs so you can see the weaving in of all of the floats.
