A bit of fluffy Columbia fiber from the Fibers First mill in Post Falls, Idaho.
I don’t think I quite meant there to be a three-month silence here, on this blog. The truth is, I have not really done anything interesting these past couple months. Mostly, I’ve been working on school. I may have read a few books. I definitely tried to do NaNoWriMo again earlier this month, but now … More things.
Pattern: Essential to Perfection by Hunter Hammersen (from Fine Things for Plain Occasions) The yarn is Quince and Co. Finch, a 4-ply 100% wool with marvelous stitch definition.
Pattern: Stuffies by Ysolda Teague I started these in April, and finally finished assembly this past week. (The sewing up of it all always takes me the longest; usually, however, it doesn’t take almost six months.)
We went camping last week. The only really terrible part was when our car broke down the day we were supposed to leave and we had to stay an extra day while we waited to be rescued, which took until midnight or thereabouts on Saturday. Here are some photos from our trip. … More camping.
My Aunt Marie gave me this skein of qiviut from Greenland. It is soft, folks. So soft.
I last posted on my blog over a month ago. It isn’t because I was taking a break from blogging, just because I don’t think I really had anything to say. I started quite a few new posts within that time, but none of them have been finished, and I think publishing unfinished blog posts … More layout.
Above are photos of the two Navajo-Churro fleeces that I accidentally acquired at the beginning of last month. (I say “accidentally,” because 1: I was not expecting to get them, and 2: I still have the Columbia fleece from last year, so I really shouldn’t have agreed to them.) There is a funny story behind … More navajo-churro fleeces.
Due to some motivation by one of my blog readers, this is now finished. The pattern is Honey Shawl by Amy van de Laar, and can be found in the Spring/Summer 2016 issue of Knitty. The yarn was dyed by a yarn shop owner in a tiny town in Idaho, near the Oregon border.
I’ve been in the Philippines for the last two weeks on a mission trip hosted by a Filipino-American university. For those of you who don’t know, the Philippines is a country composed of more than 7,000 islands in Asia. This post will be mostly pictures; I have to give my dad photo credit for most … More philippines.
