It's been a busy winter....

Posted this to the Fiber Arts Blog at the Times Union this morning, and since I haven't posted anything here in a while, it seemed like a fitting thing to repeat here.

Home...

I don’t view this farm as home any longer. I view it as a place of stasis and recuperation. I want to go home. Back to Savannah. I miss it too much.

Another Cowl

Just finished my second cowl. This one is of 80% acrylic and 20% wool. I wasn't sure if it would help to soak it and then flat dry it, but it did even out some of the stitches.

I have a question about blocking.

I'm trying to block the back piece of a sweater. It's a 100% wool yarn. After soaking it in lukewarm soapy water, rinsing, and squeezing as much water out of it, I lay it out on a towel.
