OK, it's been bugging the bejeepers out of me that my archive list showed all my posts as 13 months before they were posted (i.e. February 2006 instead of March 2007). So I've surrendered to the work-around - I have changed my settings to Pacific Daylight Time. So now the only thing wrong with my posts is the timestamp, which shows me posting an hour later than I am (it's sort of like posting in the future from my perspective).

One day, Blogger will figure out how to let Alaskans post in our own timestamp, and archive to the right month. Until then, I will post in the future.


Just a quick update.

Nothing has been blocked. No more knitting has happened on the Kid Merino scarf. Tax day has come and gone.

This week is all preparation for the Valley Fiber Arts Guild Spring Retreat in Wasilla. Selecting and packing projects, fiber, spindles, yarn, looms, fiber, felting needles, . . . and did I say FIBER.

Oh yeah, I suppose I should pack some clothes, too.
"See you" when I get back.

We have Photos!!

OK, so it's been kind of busy since last I blogged. And there was a bit of a disappointment in there. But I promised you all photos, so let's start with a couple of scarves.

This is the UNblocked scarf knit with SWTC's new Inspiration yarn. It was a dream to work with. And, even with this 16-row repeat lace pattern from Ann Norling, it practically knit itself (after the first couple of repeats, of course).
"Technical" Details: two (2) skeins Inspiration in color #395-Success, size 5 needles, cast on 39 stitches.

This is a one skein scarf of Kid Merino from Crystal Palace Yarns. The two-row repeat lace pattern is from One Skein Wonders: 101 Yarn Shop Favorites.
"Technical" Details: one (1) skein Kid Merino in color #4683-Canyon, size 8 needles, cast on 49 stitches.

Now for the disappointing news - my beautiful basket did not get juried into the Interior Artisans Exhibit. I am sad for the basket. I suspect that it just didn't fit with the other entries visually. But it is a fine basket and will be given a place of honor in the shop. This is HipHip -

See? Beautiful, functional, and with really cool handles.

A Granny-Along project update is forthcoming. In the meantime, does anyone out there use AOL? If so (because I don't), where's the address bar to type in a URL? I need to pass the info to someone so they can see my blog.

Thanks in advance!
