What is a PhD in knitting terms? A partially half done project.

I like to start out every new year by making a list of my projects. Before I get to this year's list here are the ones from 2015 that I did not finish.
A cardigan made from several different yarns. This was bought at the Stitches West show in 2004! This is my oldest PhD This ends up on my list year after year. I should send this out to the universe and let someone

Do you make any New Year's resolutions? Normally I don't. But since I started my blog, every year I have written a New Year's post about my UFO's. If I have to explain what that means than you must be one of the lucky few who does not have any unfinished projects.

Before I start on this year's list, let's see how I did on the list from last year.

1. A cardigan made from several different yarns. This

Typically the buttons for a woman's cardigan are placed on the left side while the buttons for a man's cardigan are placed on the right side.

While I was knitting the buttonhole bands of the baby cardigan I was making, I began to wonder why this it is necessary to place the buttons on opposite side for men and women. After a little research I learned that when buttons were first invented only the rich could afford them. Wealthy woman normally had

High Prairie Fiber

While at one of my fiber shows, I met a woman named Abi. Abi owns High Prairie Fibers. She dyes and spins beautiful yarns in small quantities. She invited me to her studio so I could see how yarn is spun. She said she would be happy to work with me to develop colors and yarns for my website. We had so much fun playing with all her gorgeous fibers and wonderful colors!

February Findings: As I write this note on January 28, the temperature here in Chicago is -8! I won't even mention the wind chill. I know that even if you live in a different part of the country, many of us have been hit hard with a brutal winter. So I am hoping that February will find us with much better weather. If not at least we can dream of warmer weather and keep working on our projects.

Happy Valentine's

Do you make any New Year's resolutions? Normally I don't. But since I started my blog, every year I have written a New Year's post. Here is part of what I wrote from last year:
1. I resolve to finish 3 of my UFO (Un Finished Objects!) before I start a new one
2. I vow not to buy ANY more yarn for the next 3 months.
3. I promise to go on a yarn "diet" and lose 20% of my over weight yarn stash.
4. I will finish the sweater that I started 9
