A Mystery UFO for Fibre Arts Monday! May 9, 2011

This week for Fibre Arts Monday I have a little unfinished object (UFO) mystery for you.  Here’s one of the baby things I’m working on.  After I finished knitting it I looked at it and wondered how it was going to turn into the finished object LOL.  Here it is…

Have you ever knitted something that turned out like this, strange in some way?  Let me know what YOU think this is 🙂

Fibre Arts Monday! April 11, 2011

It’s Fibre Arts Monday!  I’m still working on my three projects: a lacy scarf and a summer sweater for me, and a baby project for my expectant friend 🙂  I’ve also been working on spinning my beautiful blue-faced leicester wool in the “grand tetons” colourway.  Here is the fibre in a braid, before spinning. PhotobucketI’ll show you the finished yarn next week!

Love, Luck &
Laughter,

Fibre Arts Monday! Feb. 14, 2011

Fibre Arts are a BIG part of our home and our homeschool.  We handspin, knit, cork, weave, sew, and kneedle-felt.  So, I’m joining Teaching Good Things in posting weekly about the Fibre Arts we’re working on.

This week, I’m knitting the Suri Lace Scarf from Creative Knitting Magazine – my very first lace project!  I’m using beautifully soft baby alpaca laceweight yarn that I picked up on sale at Baaddeck Yarns for just $1.50!  It’s the softest yarn I’ve ever worked with.  I have only knit a few rows so far, as you can see (and yes I am using ridiculously long circular needles LOL):

My son and daughter are combining their efforts on the Cricket Loom they got for Christmas (we bought it from The Bobbin Tree).  My daughter picked the colours for the first scarf, and my son will pick the colours for the next one.  Here it is, almost finished!

Next week we might just have finished projects to show you!  And I’d like to get started on some baby things for a friend of mine who is expecting 🙂

Love, Luck &
Laughter,
