My First Knitting Project

It has been a time since I have knitted my first project. I think it turned out very well considering a few things. The entire project was knit from the back stitch.

Crochet On!

After a meeting today, I was talking with one of our Arkansas ladies that come up often to assist with one of our Colorado departments.

Making Wool...

Mom and I were talking on the phone the other day.
She asked me if I ever made anything from the fleece of Bartholomew the Ram. You see, I had a ram when I was in 4-H and FFA that would win at the State Fair. He had several champion corriedale fleeces with one fleece being the Reserve Champion of the fair. Funny, I also showed him in the ram class and that judge placed him lower because of his fleece. Yes, the same exact year he produced the Reserve Champion fleece.

Escapades in Learning to Knit: Knitting from the Back

I proudly took my first knitting project to the Men’s group yesterday. I was a bit early, so I sat and worked on it a bit. I think it is coming along at a rather nice pace.

Joe Supported My Yarn Habit

A while back, Joe-in-Wyoming recommended a shop in Casper that he frequents. Today, I went to that yarn shop he recommended. The Dancing Sheep Yarn and Fiber store is a very nice store.

UK Wool Adventures #2

Thanks to the advice of knitmanaic, I went directly to the two wools that I know are British and looked up where you can buy them. Then I started search for shops! Oh my, that worked quite well.

UK Wool Adventures

I have always wanted to purchase some UK wool (aka Yarn!). My expectation of the proper yarn shop was a bit lacking.

Waiting... for a jet plane.

I'm about ready to crochet in public. Our plane to the UK has been delayed. I brought two projects along with me to do as space is a consideration. I don't have much in terms of carry-on room.

Newly Deconstructed

Yesterday, while flat on my back during a 30 minute wait in the exam room at the doctor's office, I was looking at the florescent lights, as there isn't much to review in the new room.
