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).

May Finished

The Self-imposed Sock Club May sock is finished at least the first pair in the blues and purples is finished. The red ones still need to be but I do have 3 more days.

I have finished spinning the red Suffolk I like this one.

This was my Mom's wedding rings. Christopher took it to a jeweler and had it re-designed for Anna. He leaves tomorrow to join Anna in England to propose. Good Luck Christopher.

April Roundup

 So I finished the boring white socks for Mom and sent them off for Mother's Day.
 I finished the Six Sox Spring socks in  Megan's size and they are put aside for her birthday the 1st of June.
 I finished the Childs French sock from the SISC and added them to my sock drawers.
 I picked this yarn and the Atlantis pattern, in the May sock, but Atlantis needs a smaller yarn so while I am still going to try to use this yarn I also picked out...
 This is Opal which is small enough to work for this pattern, and I am liking it.
Here is the finished, blocked and buttoned February Lady, which I am wearing to death.  I really like it.

For Mothers day I found out that Christopher's girlfriend discovered that  some of the kids in her elementary school (she is substitute teaching) have shared their head lice with her, and she shared with Christopher, who has shared with the rest of us.  So we are washing everything in the house.  Not what I planned for today....but it certainly has been part of motherhood for me.
