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).

Pretty Productive 3 day

On Friday I got behind myself with a stick and made me finish the 2nd pocket of the Cuff-to-cuff Then on Saturday morning I wove in the few end and sewed down the pocket trim. Washed and smoothed out to dry on the table.
Here is a picture. And a picture that attempts to show the yarn varieties, (but doesn't really make the grade). And a picture of the pocket, which since it is a in-seam has not much to see. But I like it, it is bright and cheery and warm and cuddly. I have clasps to put on it but Sierra said to leave it as it is and just wear it open, I'll try that for a bit and see what I think.

Then Saturday afternoon I went over to the studio and got to work on the next 4 cotton gowns, and I finished them up on Sunday. So all of the ones I have cut out are done. I need to get over to the storage area to pick out 3 more 5 yard lengths to finish these up. Maybe tomorrow.

See this last one, I love this material, which I have had for 35 years. I have either not found a pattern I liked for it or there was not enough yardage for one I liked, but there was enough for a nightgown and I made it, It is very bright and just makes me happy to look at it. I don't *think* it glows in the dark.

    that is so pretty! I want to knit a cuff to cuff but I have so many things on the needles. Plus I took Kaity clothes shopping. She pronounced all the clothes this season to be *SO UGLY*. So now I have a spring wardrobe to sew.
