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 […]

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 […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 63

I’m still going! Albeit slower than when we started social distancing. My super secret surprise project last week was a Mother’s Day gift, of course. When Mom took her first spinning class, she came home and wanted to through away the yarn she spun. I stopped her, singing the praises of a first-spun yarn, and […]

Portuguese Knitting

Disclaimer: I acknowledge that this style of knitting is in no way exclusive to Portugal. It’s just the term I’ve seen used most, so it’s the term I will use for this post. I love taking classes. Some people find this hard to believe, because I also teach classes. That just means I know there’s […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 56

Stay-at-home orders may be lifting, but I (fortunately, I keep telling myself) will be home for a while longer. When I wrote my post about the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, I wished I was writing this post instead. I thought I had so much going on. Now that I’m finally writing this post, I’m […]

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 […]
