KNITTING

All the posts published.

The month started out with the DFW Fiber Fest, during which I helped Yarnorama in their booth. It was great fun, hard work, and honestly, an easy intro to the vending side, if by easy, you understand I mean totally not my responsibility. I was helping out and in the booth most of the festival, but also did plenty of shopping and general scoping it out. I did not do …

Just so you know it isn’t all spinning all the time, I thought I would show you the hat I started this week. I got the kit for the Primero hat at the Ross Farm booth at the DFW Fiber Festival. They have sheep that are considered heritage breeds and/or rare breeds, and are actively working to conserve the types. There is more to read about that on their website. …

The intention with my last post was to be a springboard to a new habit of posting a few times a week. Of course, life had other ideas as it often does. While I was busy not posting, I was also busy spinning and knitting, and as recent as two weeks ago I have also started weaving. I am going to be blocking two recently finished knit shawls this week, …

So, I just lost the post I have been working on and here is the short version…things will be changing up here at Knitting Buddha very soon…new look, new shopping experience…officially taking the leap and adding fiber artist to my resume…

Just a brief edit to add a scan of the finished Leftie! The pattern should have ended before the wide neon stripes but I still had a lot of yarn left, so I kept knitting and switched the main and contrast colors.   I feel like my spinning mojo might be on hiatus. The past month or thereabouts, it has been all knitting, all the time. Well, not exactly all …

I though I would follow up the book-binding post with the finished product. I actually folded 10 signatures for this book, but that would have been ridiculously heavy since I have varying weights of paper included, from some sketch paper (guessing maybe 60 pound?) up to 140# watercolor paper. There is also various colors of card stock and other colored drawing papers. I wanted a good variety to push me …

In between the work I have to do today, I have been knitting a few stitches here and there on a scarf that I have knit a time or eight before, the Traveling Woman, by Liz Abinante. I don’t know what it is about this pattern, but there is something very soothing about knitting it that turns me toward total relaxation. My brain engages, but it isn’t terribly complex. There …

I have been working on some of my gratitude projects. I have 10 this year, five from an offer I made via fb, anf 5 via an offer I accepted from my neice (also via fb and a slightly different offer. Technically I only had 4 responses to the first offer, so I went and chose a fifth to be grateful for. I will do much the same for the …

We lead a pretty quiet life to most people’s standards, sometimes bordering on hermit status. However, lately, I have felt a bit caught up in the whirlwind effect. My mind seems to be flying from one thing to the next in rapid succession. It isn’t overwhelming, but it seriously needs to slow down a bit. Two weeks ago we had company which was a treat. Then last week I was …

One of my resolves this year is to reel in the stash…not necessarily to not buy yarn, but I really want to make an effort to use some of my loveliness for real.  I decided to take a cue from the Yarn Harlot and her self imposed sock club and I have set up a self imposed scarf club. I was on ravelry catching up with my forums and one …
