Socks and more socks

I have been working steadily in the studio at least 5 hours per day. The Kirkland almost finished. It has definately been a labor of Love. I am blocking it as it got rather wigglie due to the intense amount of stitching. I will try and put the border on today and get some good photos.

In the evening I have another life...knitting. I have knitted since I was six or so and find that it is a very relaxing. Of course, just like my stash, the left over bits and lengths of yarn can be overwhelming. so I have taken to knitting funky socks. These are my latest pair...very warm, and very much a conversation starter when I was out shopping.

Hot off the Machine

I just finished quilting #4 in the dialogue series


I am finishing knitting a sweater for my friend Desiree. She purchased some beautiful hand painted wool..and wanted a boxy roll neck sweater. So here it is, in the final stages of completion.
There is something that is suductive about fiber. I love working will it in all forms.
