This WIP has been "In progress" since February 2009. In my own defense, it's pretty hot here to be stitching together a heavy blanket, so I only worked on it in the winters. Looks nice on my bed but I have so many of them and this one is extra long (5' x 8') and… Continue reading Robin’s Egg Afghan
I'm on a bit of a hiatus now doing other things for the holidays, like baking, decorating and traveling. Early, I know, but I don't want to miss sending my best wishes for you and your family for a joyous season of laughter, kindness and love. "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try… Continue reading Merry Christmas from MyDailyFiber!
Over the years I've learned to simplify my Thanksgiving a bit by using more out of the box foods and enjoying the meal more. I still spend time on certain things, but I've let go of a few things that seemed like they weren't worth the time I was putting into them.

Trying to get a head start on done winter mittens for Christmas. One more color to go. These are Wood hollow mittens in Cascade 220 super wash.

A cousin asked if I would make socks for her soon-to-arrive baby. I honestly had nothing on the needles so how could I say no? They're a hybrid of a few patterns, but soft and cute anyway.
A gift bag completes the gift and off it goes to the birthday girl. Hope she likes it.
This is the Ishbel Shawl, which has become a favorite for me. This is a Christmas present but I try to make those well in advance because I'm not one to try to knit in a deadline. That ruins the peaceful fun of knitting for me. This is knit in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the… Continue reading Annalisa’s Shawl
