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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 41

I hope you’re all doing well and still crafting, ’cause I was not. I had a massive panic attack Saturday morning, and nothing got done all weekend. I’ve been feeling so much better these last few days, but this post didn’t get done on Tuesday because I felt like I didn’t have much to show. […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 33

I’m dipping again. The stay-at-home order extensions will be necessary, but that brought all the panic back. Let’s focus on the yarn things, instead: I finished the reusable menstrual pads, my Rebel Alliance Skull and Crossbones beanie, and this little pocket duck: I cast on my next Star Wars hat: the Baby Yoda slouch. I […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 19

Coming at you live from my apartment (of course) to show you what projects gave me sanity over the last week. I chose to cast on the Crimson KAL first, and it is coming along nicely: I haven’t cast on the crop top yet. My goal was to keep my cast-on-itis in check, but these […]

Eco Face Pads Pattern

I’ve been working on another set of these Tunisian Crochet Eco Face Pads for a friend. You might recall I taught this as a class last year. Then I had the thought, if people can’t go to classes, bring the class to them. That’s been everyone’s plan with social distancing, right? So I took my […]

Crochet with Scale Mail

I have been trying to get in a D&D campaign for at least the last decade, and now it has finally happened!! I’m beyond excited. We have such a great DM, and the party seems just the right amounts of serious and “I want a lion companion with a flower mane.” If I’m being completely […]
