Felted Witch Hat

“Your wretched little lives have all been cursed, ’cause of all the witches working, I’m the worst.” Winifred Sanderson My love of Halloween is no secret (Heck, I picked a spider to represent my brand), but I’m always trying to mix it with my love of all things fiber arts. Let me take you a […]

Me Made May: Week One

If I’m being totally honest, this challenge got off to a rough start. I had to keep changing my plan, and it felt like I had bitten off more than I could chew. Once I got my rhythm, I was fine. Once I finished my first outfit, I was feeling great! This is a crop […]

WIP Challenge: April Update

Y’all… it’s not good… and with Me Made May this month, it probably isn’t going to get that much better! I did finish the “Easter” shawl, at least! One very pre-2021 WIP finished makes me feel good. There were only two new projects started this month, too, but both were Shiny Object projects… I cast […]

Knitting is Sexy

CW: This post mentions previous negative body image. There’s a certain image that people have in their head of a “knitter.” I find it’s usually the cartoon granny from Looney Toons, sitting in her rocking chair, holding her knitting needles up almost perpendicular to the ground, and sock after sock falling into her lap. It’s […]

More Weaving Adventures

You may recall I took a class on tapestry weaving last month, and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much, I sought out other techniques to try and finished this small piece! Never one to waste handmade fabric, the thought before it was even finished was to make into a little notion pouch. […]

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 […]

My Little Secret Crop Top

It’s the end of another era. You may recall way back to my first Social DisKnitting post, I was casting on for a MKAL hosted by Jessie Maed with her new, free pattern. The idea was to have something fun to work on, together, while we were all stuck inside. So, I grabbed a cotton […]

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 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 […]

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 […]
