I'll have to test my sense of (fiber)hearing. I usually go with my nose!

WHAT!?! Your a spinning, dye-ing, and knitting goddess and you can tell fiber by smell, touch and audio wise? It's official I am just not worthy of reading your blog

Fascinating! I confess it's never occurred to me to listen to my yarn. I like to smell yarn (confirmed yarn sniffer here), but I've never tried to tell the fiber composition by nose. I'll give it a try!

Patterns

Lace work

  • Beaded shawl
    A collection of knitted lace shawls, stoles and wimples. Many were done in handspun yarn. Click on an image for a larger picture and description, plus charts for some.

Socks and small knits

  • Keesmere Ski Hat
    These are all handknitted socks and other small items. Most of these were knitted from my own handspun yarn. Click on an image for a larger picture and description, plus charts for some.

    (Most of the Celtic designs came from Celtic Charted Designs by Co Spinhoven, an excellent and inexpensive resource.)

Doll Knits

  • Short sleeve sweater
    A collection of (mostly) knitted doll clothing.

Sweaters

  • Infant's Aran pullover
    Back in the dark ages (as in pre-1987), I used to knit sweaters. Nowadays, I rarely do, so I'll use this album to record some of what I have done and may yet to be.

Blankets and woven items

  • Shadow weave plaid towel
    Mostly handwoven items, mostly from commercial yarns.

Yarns and fiber

  • Storm Clouds yarn
    An assortment of fibers and handspun yarns.
