Color Me Impressed

Finished up another square of the My Years in Yarn(Ravelry link) blanket last night: This one shows quite a trend since May… Everything was blue or gray (or both). So it came around to adding a cat square for the Many Cat’s Cushion, and I think I’ll mix it up; I’ll add some green to […]

Meow!

Not too long ago, I had a heck of a time getting some crocheted squares to lay flat. It took binging all of Floor is Lava to figure it out, but I did! While that was certainly the hardest part of the whole endeavor, I kept getting a little overwhelmed at all there was to […]

Camp Loopy: July

I did a lot better with Camp Loopy this month than last. I comfortably finished a few days before the deadline and had a blocked, pretty photo to turn in for this month’s challenge. Here it is: my Drive-In Movie shawl. I picked the Botany lab for July, since my colors were Birch and Sumac. […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 126

I’m on a low on the CoronaCoaster today. Cases keep going up, people are acting like the opposite is true, and we’re supposed to go back into the office soon. It’s a lot. But the yarncrafts are still helping, so that’s good. No new cast-ons since my last post, but I do have these little […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dad’s Hats

Have you ever bought a whole knitting or crocheting book for a single pattern? Did you feel like you got your money’s worth when you did that? Would you believe me if I told you I have and I did? I have no memory of my father with hair. I’ve seen pictures, sure, but in […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 47

This may be my last Social DisKnitting post. The statewide stay-at-home order is supposed to lift on May 3, and while I’m eager to get out the house, I’m still scared and angry. So who knows, maybe I’ll still do these updates under a new name. I have two new finished object! The hats I […]
