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).

Socks and Jacket

The sweaters, that were put in the dryer, look like they will be OK. But I need more new sweaters so I dug out the cuff to cuff and started working on it again. I am sewing up the sleeves and side seams so that I can try it on and see how much more knitting I need to do before shaping the neck. I am considering putting a hood on this jacket, we will see. I have plenty of yarn and that deep solid red is alpaca and ssssooooooooo soft.

I like the bright primary colors, they just look happy to me, and it is time to get this done and off the needles, and onto me!

Yesterday I finished putting the 2nd heel in the Birthday socks for Mike. Now to finish the sweater for Mark and both of them can go into the mail.

I am going to gather up all of the pattern, yarn, etc and pack them to take with me on Tuesday, I have to take Sierra in for her first day of school, and my car in for its 150 K checkup.

This evening I am going to cast on the 3rd pair of guy socks for carry around and teaching knitting, so that they will be ready on Wednesday.
