Castle Fibers

leave a comment »

Ok guys and gals!
I’m going to be adding links (slowly but surely)  in the sidebars to places that I think are interesting and would benefit any fiber fan who happens to stumble on my humble abode!
Today I am adding Castle Fibers.  She is extremely creative with just the right dash of sass (that is quickly becoming my favorite compliment).

Take a look, bookmark, and give your business.  She is a wonderful and talented person whose love for fiber is evident!

Going Back to My Love

leave a comment »

I’ve set aside the needles for a day and picked up my hook.

I am making myself a doily for underneath our fruit bowl on our Island in the kitchen. I am so glad that this works up quickly. The satisfaction is why I love Crochet. I don’t even have to think about it.

Im sure that years down the road I’ll be able to do that with Knitting- but now certainly isn’t the time. Slow going but I know it’ll bring that sense of accomplishment when I am finished with the project.

My camera is totally missing at this point- I need to take progression pictures of my lace and sock projects as well as my doily before I finish the thing.

As soon as I find it this blog will have lots o pictures.

Cast On

leave a comment »

I did it!! I cast on this evening to make my first ever socks! I am using Castle Fibers “Sense and Sensibility” sock yarn (which is gorgeous and has been a gem to work with). I am sure most of you have noticed my protected post previous to this one: that is the pattern but since it has to be purchased I assigned a password. If you would like to see the pattern or purchase just let me know and I’ll link the site from here.

I am taking some major steps in my knitting as of late. I am working on my first lace project (the Crown Prince shawl from Nancy Bush’s Estonian Knitting book), I have started my first sock (and can totally see the appeal— they work up pretty quickly), and I am quite a ways into my nieces Christening gown!

I seriously NEED this many projects in rotation because if not I get bored :/
