The end of the old

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 20:18:28 +0000

We finally got my newly updated blog up and running. Finally. The only bad news about it, and it isn’t all that bad, is that the blog had to move. Things on the Internet are a little different than they were years ago when we initially set up this blog site. So, from now on, [...]

Poor, old blog

Fri, 14 Jun 2013 19:33:01 +0000

Don’t faint or anything, but I’ve been wanting to blog a bit again lately. I know! Now you’ve gone and fainted. I hope you didn’t hurt yourself when you fell off your chair. The sad thing is that my blogging software is so old (WordPress 2.3.1) that it doesn’t work and play well with all the [...]

Lalique and North Coast

Thu, 02 Feb 2012 19:28:24 +0000

I have found, much to my chagrin, that it’s either spend time on Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, or blog even remotely regularly. Or do all of them, and just chuck designing. That last bit is not currently an option. And hopefully won’t be for a good long time to come. Given that there are only [...]

Birdsfoot Fern

Fri, 14 Oct 2011 16:55:26 +0000

Wow. I’ve been a bad blogger lately, haven’t I? Well, though I’ve been a horrid blogger of late, I’ve been a busy designer. There are three sweaters in the pipeline (a cardigan and two pullovers, plus I’m about to cast on for another cardigan), and then there’s Birdsfoot Fern, a scarf pattern that I released [...]

Website update

Mon, 26 Sep 2011 17:11:44 +0000

Hello everybody. Dave here with a quick note about the Fiber Dreams website. We released a new version of the site a couple of days ago. Most of the changes are in the background. A lot of the server-side code has been updated, and the site’s running on a new server. The main thing you’ll [...]

We have a name!

Tue, 02 Aug 2011 18:07:15 +0000

The pattern isn’t actually a labyrinth or a maze at all. But that was a popular theme with people suggesting names. I even got a couple of votes that indicated people liked the labyrinth theme. I dug around a little, did some research online, and thought that perhaps Knossos would be a good name for [...]

Another cowl needs a name

Tue, 26 Jul 2011 17:57:36 +0000

While waiting for yarn for a couple of sweaters to arrive (the first package arrived from Green Mountain Spinnery with Saturday’s mail) I knit up a quick little cowl pattern with Malabrigo Lace Baby Merino. Before you panic with thoughts of knitting a cowl forever with 30,000 stitches, while this cowl is knit with lace [...]

More patterns, an interview, and a quotation

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 16:49:40 +0000

Seven new patterns in eight weeks The madness that started with the release of Clematis has (at least temporarily, I think, though I may be proved wrong) ended with the dual release of Lazy River and Stream (as well as the e-book that combines the last two called Confluence). That makes seven new patterns released in [...]

Roses and Riverbeds

Mon, 27 Jun 2011 17:56:49 +0000

First off, huge thanks to each and every one of you who took the time to share your suggestions for these two cowl designs. You all came up with a lot of wonderful names. It was difficult to choose. In the end I wrote a list of my favorites, then read and re-read the list, [...]

Slightly better photos

Thu, 23 Jun 2011 17:39:46 +0000

Completely untouched by imaging software, other than to make them small enough to reasonably display here on the blog, I share with you two much better photos of the cowls we are trying to name: twisted cowl 1 and twisted cowl 2. Though they’re definitely cowls, I discovered quite by accident that they’re both stretchy [...]
