Fiber Friday - And a Link Up!

It's Fiber Friday! Today I want to try something new for all of you, which I'll put at the end of this post.

I haven't had a Fiber Friday at home in quite awhile. My oldest boys got shots yesterday - 2 in each leg! -  and the poor babies have been hobbling around the house saying "Ouchieeee... people ouchie... bandaid...." (The "people" gave them ouchies.) So today is a lazy day. They are parked in front of Alice in Wonderland and I will take this opportunity to knit my heart out.

Here is where I'm at on the toe up Peacock socks. I have so named them from the colorway of the yarn. I still have a LOT of yarn left in the ball, so they will be very long socks. I'm not sure yet if I will be keeping them or giving them away, as they are just a tad bit long for my foot.

And the snorkel shawl. I am finally to the point of working the edging. I finished the repeats on... Sunday, I think. And have been working on the edging since. Yes. That's 4 days. No, I'm not close to being done, I'm not even half way through. Yes. That is ridiculous. But I haven't been working on it for 4 days solid, just intermittently as I have a chance to sit down for a few minutes. It's coming along and I'm hoping to have it on the blocking board by Sunday .

And now for the fun part!

I'd like to start a weekly link up that involves audience participation. It will happen on my Fiber Fridays. This is a chance for everyone to show off anything they've been crafting over the last week. Haven't crafted anything in awhile? Do something now! I think everyone needs that creative time, it's good for your soul.

So, here are a few rules/guidelines just to get us started.

  • It doesn't have to be knitting. Honestly, it doesn't have to be "fiber" related. Link up anything you've knit/crocheted, quilted, painted, glued together - Whatever! Just anything crafty you've worked on the last week.
  • It doesn't have to be finished. My stuff isn't finished, why should yours? Just link up any progress so we can see where y'all are at with your crafties!
  • Please link directly to the post itself, not your entire blog. For example, I would not put in my link for "http://bitoflifeblog.blogspot.com", but would put "http://bitoflifeblog.blogspot.com/2010/08/footies.html" which points directly the Footies post.  You can find the URL/address you need by clicking on the title of your post and copying that address.
  • You've got until Sunday at Midnight to add your link!
This is the first time I've attempted something like this, so I hope it works.

Won't you play along? :)

I will be adding something to it, I dug out a counted cross stitch I hope to get started on. I have missed Fiber Fridays.

Yay! I have one link! LOL!

I think it's really just been too hot for Fiber Fridays. So now that's it's cool we can get back to it.

Love the colors your knitting with, very pretty! Hope the little ones are feeling better soon!

Farm Girl said...

oops it linked me again, so does that mean we can have Fiber Friday and Saturday? That would be fun!! I took my sewing with me to piano lessons and forgot to bring a needle??
I think I am just loosing it big time.
Have a great weekend.

Valerie: They're already running up and down the hall again, I think they're fine and are just trying to milk it. Heh.

Mom: If you didn't bring a needle, then would it just be "fabric" and not "sewing"? I think maybe you need a vacation...

I have this stack of commission pics that I'm building up the nerve to work on. I submitted a link to my concept sketches. :-)

Sorry about the ouchies for your little guys. Are they coming up with their own language. My twins did that with lots of words :-)
Good luck on your blog party. I won't be working on anything right away, but when I do, I'll keep your party in mind :-)
Blessings,
Marcia
