Eureka!

Every once in a while, the powers-that-be put me back in my place. I found this cat cushion a little while back, and sent it to a fellow cat-loving friend, mostly as a joke. “But I actually love it,” was the response. Never one to deny my loved ones anything, I sighed, acknowledged my fault […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 112

But first, yesterday was FahrOut Fiber Adventures’ second birthday! Part of me can’t believe I’m still writing after two years, but this blog has gone a slightly different direction than what I first intended. That shows growth and creativity, though, right? I hope so, at any rate. If you would have told me two years […]

Camp Loopy: June

Well, last week was a cluster. Had to go back to physical work among a few other large, time sensitive projects, so not a lot of knitting got done last week. That means I’m in a bit of a pickle to finish my Camp Loopy project on time. I haven’t participated in a while, because […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 98

We’ve been at this almost 100 days. It feel like we just started and this is the way it’s always been at the same time… I have an FO! I finally finished that scarf for my friend. He’s a swing dancer who always wore this horrible mass-produced scarf that was curling and pilling, and I […]

Steek it to Me

I am enraged by the ordeals Georgia voters had to go through just to make their voices heard in a primary election. November’s national election cannot be a repeat, especially as we continue to fight a pandemic. I encourage you to donate your funds to Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight PAC or your time to the […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 91

Previously, I worried that I didn’t have enough content for these posts anymore, but now I’m trying to remember all I’ve done since the last one. I finished my Wonderful Wallaby sweater: Haven’t had a chance to take modeled photos, yet, but a blocking photo works for proof of FO, right? I’ve also finished two […]

Virtual Fiber Retreat

After this week of radio silence, I do feel the need to state, unequivocally, Black Lives Matter. If you are able, I hope you will donate to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund or the Black Lives Matter Global Network, or another local or national organization that is fighting the injustices black people, here and all […]

Punch Needle

My fascination with punch needle began when I went to the Estes Park Wool Market last year. It seemed almost too good to be true. Since I’m still stuck at home, I decided to continue on the new-skill path and give it a try. The basic technique of punch needle is using a large, threaded […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 70

I don’t know about you all, but I’m starting to have actually good days for the first time since this all started. Hope it lasts a little while, anyway. After ripping out the neckline twice, I finished my bed-sheet summer dress. I’m so happy with it. Along the same line, I finished the hood of […]

Virtual Vogue Knitting Live

I understand Vogue puts on some great shows, but they’re really expensive and usually pretty far away from me. So just like the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, this was a silver lining virtual event for me! By the time I was able to sign up, most of the classes were sold out, but I […]
