It's Fiber Arts Friday

Happy Fiber Arts Friday to all my fellow knitters out there!  Not too much to report on this end; I finished the body of my husband's sweater and have almost completed the first sleeve.  Hope to have this done in the next week.  Here is the front:


Since there's not too much to show this week, I thought I would post a picture of me wearing my Cabled Capelet.  Went to San Francisco last weekend to see the Dutch painting exhibit featuring Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring at the deYoung Museum.  Even though the weather is getting milder in the Bay Area, there's always an opportunity to wear wool in SF:


A few last pictures from Stitches.  For those of you not able to attend, here is the market floor:


Here is Audrey, the designer of the Celestarium shawl, with another woman who made hers in a striking blue variegated yarn:


Have a good weekend everybody and check out what other knitters are doing over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.                                                                        


  1. Your picture of Audry and the shawls came out far better than mine!

  2. Love the cabled capelet. I am jealous of the West show attendance! One day will make it out there for the west version.

  3. You got to meet Audry? Lucky you, she is wonderful! Also the cape is so perfect for a day at the museum! I'll bet passersby's admired it. That sweater is really coming along, you should finish it before you know it.

  4. Hooray! You are making some great progress on that sweater.

    You look beautiful in your photo! I love that caplet.

  5. I love the DeYoung... I saw an actual da Vinci there... Lady with an Ermine. Just exquisite.

    I'm so anxious to see your husband's sweater finished.
