Hue Magazine – Spring 2013
Hue is the Alumni Magazine for the Fashion Institute of Technology. The current issue is completely devoted to textiles, everything from first century Peruvian tunic to high tech fibers. Even better, the entire magazine is available for you to “flip” through on the web.


2013 Spring Cleaning Wrap Up

Wrapping up the 2013 Spring Cleaning Effort:

  1. Tea Leaves have already been ripped back to the ruffles and the first set of short rows completed. This now goes back into the WIP pile.
  2. The yarn has been repurposed and the new shrug is finished.
  3. Holey socks gone.
  4. Circle of Life will have its place next to my chair after Deb Menz Blanket.
  5. Fleeces will wait for summer.
  6. Deb Menz Blanket is next to my chair. I’ve re-familiarized myself with my flash cards and I am good to go!

As for the Ghosts of Spring Cleaning Past, only the Squirrel Mittens will go back into the WIP basket. The Victoria Shawl will likely be ripped out (only a few inches in) and re-evaluate. The yarn will likely go back into stash.

2 down. 5 to go.

So what keeps some projects off the Spring Cleaning Effort? If they’ve been on the needles/in process less than 6 months, they are completely within the realm of WIP!

2013 Spring Cleaning #5

Fleeces. I’ve got fleeces.

All the ones that I intended to send out for processing have been sent and returned. I still have several that I had set aside for hand processing. Majority of these are not yet scoured. I need to use the warm weather to sort and scour them. I don’t have to process them, but I need to get them washed and sorted.


Summer project.
