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).

It has been much too hot here for August and September, so knitting has slowed down, but the last week or so it has cooled off some so I have gotten some progress. 

There is the studio project, the Kauni Damask which is slowly growing: The pictures don't do it justice it fairly glows and shimmers in person, and I am very pleased with it and the way the numbers worked to put in the sleeve steeks.

Even though it is slow I am enjoying working on this sweater in the quiet of the studio. with no distractions, I can just become part of the rhythm of the knitting, it is very soothing.

Then there is the carry around project, the top-down raglan for Rayne which is just endless stocking stitch, until I get to the front pocket of the hoodie, which will have a cat face.  I had gotten the sleeves knitted to the ribbing, and the hood to the 3-needle bind off, so yesterday at the studio I finished off the sleeves and hood.  Now there is only the miles of stocking stitch to finish the body.  Great for carry around knitting.

Also, yesterday, I got around to ripping out the fronts of Trip Trap.  So that is ready when I get back to it.  Yes it truly must be fall.
