Adventures in Fibonacci Weaving

This is about the interconnectedness of all things. In 1202, Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician, wrote a book called Liber abaci (“Book of the abacus”). In this book he posited a problem: A certain man put a pair of rabbits in a place surrounded on all sides by a wall. How many pairs of …

Getting ready for the Great Lakes Art Fair

iris handspun yarn

A sheep, a llama, and a goat walk into a bar. Um. Ok, I don’t have the rest of the joke, just the beginning. If anyone can come up with the rest of the joke, please share in the comments. Anyway, the reason I’ve got a sheep, a llama, and a goat in my head …

High on wool fumes

rainbow sheep

I’ve been meaning to tell you about WoolFest ever since I got back. Definitely a cool show and a cool place. It was in Kirtland, Ohio at Lake Farmpark. Kirtland was rolling hills and lush green forests, absolutely beautiful. The farmpark was just that: a farm that was a park. There were groups of kids …

I am warped

direct warping

I’m still sick but definitely feeling better than I was yesterday, when the grim reaper could’ve come to drag my lifeless body away and I wouldn’t have had the strength to protest. Today, I’d have the strength to toss a cup of hot tea at him or something, at least. So since I’ve had a …

I hate colds

I try not to be too whiny here, but man, this cold is kicking my ass. This is day 9 of the cold from hell. I thought it was almost over a few days ago, but then yesterday I had a relapse. Either that or cold #1 invited some of its germy friends in to …

Videos and needles and knitweave, oh my!

Ok, kinda random today… Want to see a video with my studio in it? (It’s a mess, but we’ll get to that.) I entered a one minute video in a contest where the grand prize is a personal assistant for 6 months. I explain in the video why I could really use a personal assistant. …

Weaving, weaving, weaving…

scarf in progress

I’ve gotten back to weaving. I was weaving, weaving, weaving, then that dropped off, and I was spinning, spinning, spinning. Now I’m back to weaving. It seems like I can only be obsessed with one at a time, and then that’s all I want to do. Anyway, I finished the shawl that was on the …

Happy birthday to me!

That’s right!  I’m 45 today!  And it’s a pretty good day (aside from the sore throat my body decided to give me as a birthday present, but I’ll overlook that).  My garden says it’s definitely spring, calendar be damned.  Dwarf irises are blooming, which was an absolute delight, because I forgot I planted those! In …

New stuff

Yep, I'm still weaving, and I'm still loving it.  I've decided that buying a loom was one of the best things I've ever done.  The pillow cover that I'd been planning to knit for the past two years but never got to?  I wove it. And now I'm using some left over alpaca/wool yarn to …

Happiness is Weaving

My loom arrived.  A 24" Kromski Harp.  I wove a scarf for my first project.  And I actually remembered to take pictures! This is the yarn I used.  It's worsted weight blue faced leicester.  This is a new base yarn for me, and I'm quite pleased with it.  I dyed several colorways, and they'll be …
