Welcome to A Hot Piece of Glass!

WELCOME to my colorful corner of the world! I write here about the things I make, in glass, fiber, metals, and whatever else I can find to play with!

Shawl All Done!

Just a quick post this morning to show the end result of all that knitting....

Ta-DA! Wildfire!



I've been trying to figure out what to knit next. Something small, probably -- fingerless mitts or a hat, socks, or something -- but I can't decide on a pattern.

Now I think I need to make a shawl pin....a copper pin would be beautiful with this shawl! And maybe a couple sets of stitch markers for my shop. Maybe I will try to do that today. Hmmm...

The ideas keep coming, but the time to do these things still escapes me. At least the weather is warming up -- that means more chance to get into the garage to saw and pound some metals!

My friend Ken reports that my work did very well at the auction Saturday night, and the group overall did raise nearly $7,000 for their trip! Yay!

Enjoy your Monday off, if you are off for the US's President's Day holiday!

It turned out great and it's so cozy! May I recommend a hat for your next project. I love socks and gloves, but then you have to make two.

It looks so warm and cozy! Wish i knew how to knit! We got snow again this morning so you probably did too, the shawl will come in handy!

Christine, the shawl is gorgeous! I love the color you chose. Kuddos to your friend for such a successful event.

You finished!!! Congrats. I haven't been by for a little while. Love the colors and yes a copper shawl pin would be fantastic with it. Do you crochet? I am in love with hairpin lace right now. I teach beginning crochet classes at a local knit shop( of course I am always the odd ball). We just finished a two day class making hairpin lace scarves with ribbon yarn. It is easy, fun and so lacy and beautiful. I have a tutorial on my blog on the fiber art page. Maybe you would like to check it out. Ae you doing bead soup?
