fpk flats.


they are not for me, so they are about a size larger.

they have a weird shape, but i’m pretty happy with how they turned out.

next, is a pair for myself!

’til then…


i’m not dead yet.

i’m not dead yet.

though we did get smacked by a truck today (not our fault, or really his)- we got around 4″ of fresh stuff this morning (snow on top of ice – not good for driving) and it’s still blowing around…  and i don’t think i will be driving for the rest of the evening.  especially since the tire makes a horrible scraping noise with the bottom of the car every time you hit a slight bump…  oh the joys of anchorage and it’s never ending winter.

i have been a little under the weather with a cold.  though i feel much better now and have more energy.

i have not unpacked from last weekends cabin trip.

i have not completely finished the posts for the hawaii trip.

i have been working on this (started it on last weekends girls cabin trip.  dang cute!):

i have finished this skein of yarn (one ply is from the fiber in the previous post, the other is wool i got when i first started spinning).  i over twisted it so it would look more stripy and not as loose as my previous 2-ply yarns (sorry, my camera takes horrible photos, especially in low light):

i have felted these flats (just have to sew on strap and find a pretty button – any suggestions on color or type?):

i have not done much spinning, and this bobbin is waiting to be plied with a mate (it will be identical to the second photo):

i have finished a few hats, but they will have to be posted later.

oh, we have a new home, her name is “willow”:

oh, to be on the ocean again…

’til then…


so i was talking to my mom today on the phone while i put in the hat from yesterdays post to felt.  and i overfelted it.  not by much, but it’s definitely not what i wanted it to do.  and it’s ribbed on the bottom, which gives it the fisherman effect.  not happy.  it still looks cool, but i liked how it looked yesterday.  wah.

so i started another one, but it’s going to have more gold because i’m running out of my green.  and its smaller.

i also felted these last night:

see this post to see how huge they were before.

and the koolaid scarf:

i’m holding the yarn double so it will be thicker.

and a picture of nootka a.k.a. tootka (she has the worst gas) a.k.a. nooty pants and her friend.  i took this of her over new years weekend (the only picture i managed to take since we discovered the sd card was left in the  computer) and think it’s hilarious.

’til then…
