I’m finding myself with a bit more energy in the evenings with the return of the sun, so I’ve been spinning a little bit each night the last few days on this project. First singles for a two-ply Polwarth/silk from West Coast Colour and Carding on my great-grandmother’s double-drive wheel, which I started during last year’s Tour de Fleece. Just beautiful (the fibre and the wheel). ... See MoreSee Less

When you are driving through the rain, headed back to the snow, nothing helps keep your hopes up that spring is coming like knitting rainbow socks. (Plain sock, yarn is Bis Sock in Arc en Ciel by Biscotte yarns) ... See MoreSee Less

Two months ago, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Eight days later, I started this shawl, and gave myself an Easter deadline to complete it. Four weeks ago yesterday, Mom had surgery. Yesterday, I finished knitting the shawl. This morning, she and I blocked it, and this afternoon, I gave it to her, so that when she starts her radiation treatments in another month or so, she has something from my hands and arms to wrap around her, since I’m too far away to it often in person. Some fibre artists - like me and many others - express our emotions in yarn. A shawl like this is love and hope and strength and warmth in tangible form.

(Yarn from Prairie Dye Studio, pattern from Donna Druchunas - size small)
