Fiber Arts

I started the Fiber Arts things at the kids school last week-  we did tie-dyeing.  It was a good time, but I was amazed at how fast things went.  I brought extra just in case and we needed all of it to keep the kids busy.  

The tie-dyeing was a bit of a mess, one kids kept trying to squirt everyone with the dye, but I caught him in time.  I wonder how all of their shirts came out.  

This week is Kool-Aid dyeing and making ghosts from that Lion Brand pattern they have on their website.  I made one yesterday and it come out pretty cute.  

I think next week we will try crocheting, well maybe?

Three Time Sweater

Finally it seems like life is beginning slowly to get back to normal-  I hope to be a bit more proactive in keeping this page up and running!I’ve finished the Shadow sweater and I really like how it turned out.  I would have a photo, but Tim’s fiend Ron borrowed the digital camera.    I’ll get it back soon…  Now, I’m working on a similar sweater for Nathan, in black with a needle felted picture of Godzilla-

I have an update on the three time sweater-  after re-knitting the neck I won a blue ribbon at the Schagiticoke Fair-  not too bad!

Shadow- Now how am I supposed to get this done?  Posted by Hello

Tim found out

Tim found my blog when doing a search off the Ancient Threads page- apparently someone is reading this? No big deal- it isn't like I actually write to the thing.

I finished the three time sweater last night- well finished the last sleeve and blocked the think on my dandy little blocking board.

At last I hope it is finished. This is the third time I knitted the damn thing.

Began working again on the Tiger stripe socks, and I'm scoping out yarn for Jake's Shadow sweater. He wants a yellow sweater with a picture of Shadow the Hedgehog needlefelted on it. Sounds like a load of fun.
