+Christina Blount Presnell, I am working on the Trail Ride sock pattern for my husband. I've never done knit math, so my question is this...is the pattern considered a 6 stitch repeat, if so, do I increase to 72 stitches to accommodate his larger foot?

+Christina Blount Presnell, don't think a thing about it. I was going ahead anyway, but knew I'd get someone's attention. +Beate Mieslinger

There is a story to tell here! I never met the woman who had such an extensive knowledge of fibers, dyes, weaving, spinning and many other talents. But, as you can see, I have a small portion of her dyed samples. They need to be organized and preserved. Where do I start? How should they be stored?

I have been asked to help organize a woman's fiber collection. I thought I would start small...just one box. The samples and their recording card are absolutely amazing. How do I go about storing these to prevent the loss of a great fiber resource? I'd love any and all thoughts. What would you do first?

Photographing everything is a given :) I am constantly delighted to have the ability to use digital technology in documenting and conserving textile technology! This also gives you a record of any existing damage - any dirt or insect or sun damage. Although looking at those sample cards, it's pretty clear Billy was already being as careful as connivence allowed (meaning probably not archival card stock, but obviously very orderly and thoughtful).

Look what I made!  - 
 
My attempt at making some inexpensive stitch markers...silver kidney wire earrings and some pretty blue beads.

My oldest daughter just begged a pair of earrings out of these! I tried to explain that even though they are made from earring wires, they are stitch markers. Lol. She took them anyway.

Two finishes! The socks are from #sockclub2014 #farmersmarket

I think I'm going to just move ahead to 2015 patterns now. I promised the Hubs a pair of #febsockclub. And I have Noro yarn for another pair for me.

What I'm working on now  - 
 
So. After two very long days of working on websites, I'm finally settling down to knit. I've forgotten exactly which sock pattern I'm using, but I have to get the toes done first and it really doesn't matter. Also, they will be crashing in here soon to watch American Sniper and have threatened to take my knitting away so I don't ask a bunch of questions.

My husband doesn't like for me to knit while watching a movie with him because I need a little light and he like it to be dark.

My friend & I are both fiberists and historians. Jane has acquired possession of a local woman's collection of dyed yarns. Billy passed away several years ago, but has left behind a treasure that we would like to organize and preserve. My biggest question...how do we store these cards and the attached samples?

Mainly you want to make sure they don't fade and keep away bugs and anything that will damage the fiber or papers.

Okay, Folks!
It looks like I will be going to Rhinebeck this October!
I would love your thoughts and suggestions on where to stay/camp. I am going with a friend that is doing a little recon before deciding whether or not to make this a sale festival for her in the future.

I know there are people who camp, but they're generally seasoned campers, who don't mind cold weather camping.  I'm usually chilled to the bone, and exhausted by the time I leave the fairgrounds, and want a hot meal served to me, with a nice soft bed to follow.

A little fiber for your morning. On the wheel is the Rose Quartz. The other was a discontinued color. Both are from my weekend at Maryland Sheep & Wool.

FIber Art Show  - 
 
I'm helping out a couple of friends at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. They've kept me busy so I'm not getting the pictures that I thought I would.
The first pic taken is pretty much all I'm getting to see...closed up booths.

I caught some yarn bombers doing their thing.

I sent a fiber picture to Thing 2. He approved so I bought that. I also bought another kit from Shelridge Farm & took notes on colors to order to make another Andrea Poncho (I love my first one from the 2013 show!)

I need to have this finished by Saturday for a baby shower...I've finished pinning it, but this nasty headache makes me nervous about attempting to do any quilting tonight. I'd probably ruin it. Going to bed and hoping I feel better in the morning.

As +Ellen Weiß says. If you're like me, the more stress the more the seam ripper comes out so best to finish later.
