Checking in

Dear Friends,

I just thought I'd check in and let you know that I'm still alive. I've been keeping up to date with all of your busy creativity over the last while but things have been busy and hectic and I haven't had the space to say hello - so I thought it was time.

Museum Meet-Up Vest design published

I'm really pleased with my latest design in Love of Knitting Winter 2012. They did a great job picking the model and styling the photo. You'll see the back in the second image, which reverses the mosaic and striped sections from the front, and adds a white stripe across the center of the black section to mirror the white section with black stripe.

More yarn

I have been spinning most of the spring and summer (is it fall already?) and finally have some yarns plied.

This is some grey that was a Merino/silk blend. It was so much fun to spin, which is why I spent so much time doing it! It was prepared beautifully (which makes spinning so effortless) and it wanted to be a very fine yarn. I had no choice in the matter!

Little Process, but still enjoyable.

So, I've been working on this "Dragonfly" 75% Polworth 25% Silk blend that I purchased from Huckleberry Knits. I've been spinning it out quite thinly in hopes of making a three ply. It's been slow going and occasionally I feel some impatience at my slowness until the part that is just enjoying the process and finding peace in the treadling of my wheel takes back over and just enjoys it.

New Sweater

I haven't finished my wife's or my son's sweaters and I certainly can't work on them while we are all in the same room. They are both Christmas presents.

New Sweater

I made a sweater for my friend Miguel. Shetland Wool, natural black, 3.25 mm needles. I decided to make a shawl collar even though I had never done one before. I inspected one at a clothing store and tried to make up a plan. I cast off 2.5 inches in the middle of the front and then decreased 2.5 inches on either side of this (every 4th row) to the neck.

Twisted Loop Yarn Shop

Hello all,
As usual, it has been a couple of months since I've posted anything. But for once it is not for a lack of knitting! I've actually been getting quite a bit done nowadays and have ventured out into the wonderful world of lacey cowls, fingerless mitts, and even a halter top. More about that in another blog... with pictures, for sure.

Lopi Sweater finished. Pattern is Jon from Lopi pattern book 30 (i think)

Finished and blocked Lopi sweater, just in time. Flying to Iceland tomorrow for some R&R with friends. This sweater should be WARM, at least warmer than I'll ever need in Central California.
