This Week's Fiber Post Has Gone to the Animals ...

... more specifically, George Bailey, since I have been in the process of finishing up several projects that I am not at liberty to discuss.
I must say, though, he has mastered the art of sunbathing. I, on the other hand, would be a fool to follow in his pawsteps (not to mention I'd need to be a contortion artist of the highest sort).

I will say, generally, I've seen a lot of wonderful handspun yarn over the last few weeks (thank you, Tour de Fleece spinners). I've also seen the beginnings of the Fall 2013 designs - most notably Rowan (with its book number 54), as well as the first few fall books from Berroco.
If these are any indication, knitters are in for a grand fall filled with wonderfully textured, deeply colored designs, not to mention tinged with bling (can anyone say Rowan Kidsilk Haze Glamour?).

If you've seen anything that's grabbed your fiber fancy over the last few weeks, I'd love to hear about it, so feel free to leave a comment below - after you've been over to Adrea's blog Wisdom Begins in Wonder and left your own fibery footprint.

And for everyone in the eastern U.S. - stay cool!


  1. hmm....glamor makes it sound sparkly ....:D

  2. aww, he's such a handsome little dude!! I love the way cats sunbathe, they look like they enjoy sunshine on a whole other level.

  3. He is very happy in your home.

  4. I love George Bailey! He reminds me of my Firework. Soon, my dear, shall have some of that wonderful handspun you've seen to crochet up into awesomeness!

  5. Mr. Bailey sure knows how to enjoy life, the contentment on his face is priceless :)

  6. I have to agree with Julie.... HNL.
