The end of the old

Monday, August 19, 2013

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, […]

Lalique and North Coast

Thursday, February 2, 2012

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

Friday, October 14, 2011

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

Monday, September 26, 2011

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 […]

Another cowl needs a name

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

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

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 […]

Slightly better photos

Thursday, June 23, 2011

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 […]

Two cowl patterns

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

I hinted the other day that I have two new cowl patterns coming up. Both patterns are currently in the hands of the tech editor. All that’s left other than that is to write up descriptions, take some better pictures on my dress form, Nicole… and to name the things. Most of it is easy […]

Last week I released the first shawl pattern since last year. I know! It was wonderful knitting a full shawl again, but kind of strange, too, since it’d been so long. The shawl is called Clematis, and is named for the gorgeous old Shetland stitch I based it on, which happens to be one of […]


Monday, May 9, 2011

About 2½ weeks ago I was hit by a malware attack. I have most of my computer world put back together at this point, but definitely not all of it. Don’t ever get bitten by one of those. It’s horrible. But if you do, make sure you’ve backed up everything to an external drive. It […]
