Ah… Tour De Fleece (until we meet again)

I frequently find my real life takes over any time I can hand over to the fiber arts. I am trying to change that but I seem to be in a never-ending push pull type battle with myself. Example, until this passed Monday, I had not knit for 3 weeks.  Read the rest of this entry »

Living in my bubble … with yarn.

shawlYup – a rambly not-really-fiber-related post of words. I apologize now.


What Facebook has taught me is that the world continues to spin no matter what stage or life event you are working through. Admittedly, my personal Facebook isn’t super exciting. There are a lot of family photos posted, usually from our little stay-cay adventures, or pictures of yarn… or yarn projects in flight. But when I log in, I always love to browse down a bit in the news feed to see what else is going on – and it is there that I get a visual reminder that the world is spinning for everyone – and not in the same direction.

WIP Wednesday and Other Random Thoughts

I have no 3a22f-wip_wednesdayidea what to share. I used to be so organized – now I’m just so “here”

From my last post  – I have yet to find the elusive lost sock. Kinda miffed about that. It really was is one of my favorites. I have not yet gone through all shirts and pants, sticking my arm in and felching around. That is the next step.

Hope is not yet lost. Read the rest of this entry »


Have you seen me?

It has finally happened. In all the years as a sock knitter and knitted sock wearer – my first “lost mate” has occurred. And, sadly, to one of my more favorite pairs of hand knit socks. I’ve properly checked the laundry hamper, the baskets of clean clothes, in the dryer, in the washer, between the washer and dryer, between the dryer and wall…. and nothing.

I will be making my way to the teenagers rooms as well as all cabinets, including kitchen.

I wholeheartedly believe the sock gnomes finally got wind of just how awesome hand knit socks are and decided to take a lil nip.

I will not rest.

I will find you little buddy… I will find you.

Finally a Finished Project

fingerless1This year has been a relatively strange year for me. Work is exciting and busy. Family life is exciting and busy. Fiber life has almost stalled. I have done some spinning, which was nice. I have done a little crochet – that is nice too. Of course, I would like to be doing a lot more than I am. Read the rest of this entry »

I even updated Etsy.

I took quite a step today and added some items to Etsy – I added 2 blue-themed skeins of hand-dyed yarn (yes, hand dyed by yours truly!) and some wood items like buttons and pens that my husband made.

If you are interested or know anyone who might be – please visit my Etsy Shop.

This is one of those non-fiber posts so if you aren’t into it, wait for my next one. I’m sure it will be all about fiber (as I have a HUGE list of things I want to talk about that I didn’t in my little vacay away from the blog). Read the rest of this entry »
