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).

I did not like knitting these socks, and consequently I did not work on them, and they have languished long enough. I pulled out the needles, and ripped them out.  Wound the yarn and I will find a pattern I like better.

Then I got out this shawl, I found it tucked in the bottom of a knitting bag and I have no idea what pattern I was using, but it was knit on too small needles anyway, but the yarn is Alpaca/Merino Handspun, so I pulled out the needle, caught all the markers, and pulled out all the yarn back to these 2 big balls.  I will find a pattern I like better, and make a new shawl that I will like better.  The yarn is so soft, and gray.

I'm Just a Finishing Fool

well don't get too excited the Central Park Hoodie has its hood, but not its
zipper, so while the knitting and the weaving in of ends and all that is finished, it really isn't totally finished, but I won't have a zipper until at least, next Tuesday(not tomorrow).

And before I wove in all the ends and such I finished the Lace socks, that have been in progress for 2 years and 3 days. Not my best time.

But they are done now and there are only 4 WIPs on the Ravlery page, (there is another shawl which has not been added because I Need at least 2 lace shawls at any given time).  I have no idea why but it seems I do.
