Question: Emmy, what the heck have you been doing since you haven't been blogging?

-Impatiently waiting for 20 yards of generously donated yarn to arrive from New Hampshire so I can finish my sweater. (didn't I tell you? I finished all but 2.5 inches on a sleeve and ran out of yarn)

- Knitting a ridiculous amount of wash cloths and tribbles for Christmas gifts

- Spinning flax into linen for a market bag

-Making mittens for afghans for Afghans

- Learning how to work our new sweet Nikon D80

- Figuring out which sweater to make next, since I am loving the result of my almost finished one

-For some reason feeling in a overall funk this week

- Looking forward to going home at Christmas

(yes, I realize the last two are most likely related)

In relation to offering my leg warmer pattern. I have been doing some research and reading about offering free patters. I have found that it may be in my best interest as a fiber artist, who hopes to one day have a decent income from fibering, to offer it at a small fee rather than free. This means I will need to do some substantial editing and find some test knitters so it may be awhile, thanks for understanding.

And about felting, well it seems I don't have it in me to write more about it, so sorry. I suppose I'll have to wait till it becomes a passion so here is a blog that explains the further details of hand felting, except I never used a sheet.


  1. You have been doing great..I feel ashamed of myself..

  2. Oh I GUESSSS we can forgive you (: I can't wait to see the sweater all completed!! I was making a scarf and ran outta yarn too. I have to just make it a scarflette now... it's all verrry fustrating! ♥Mannie

  3. where is home? home is where the heart is *insert noise here* <-- from the movie

  4. I can't believe you guys finally got a camera. What made you do it? I think you will have a blast experimenting! Christmas will come faster than you think, but I know what it feels like when all you want to do is be home. When do you leave and how long will you stay? Tell people we know hi - Alice and Andy, Claire and Taylor, Kendra. :)
