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 […]

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 26

We’ve been at this for almost a month, you guys. Is this almost “normal” to anyone else? I mean, I’m still freaking out, but no where near as bad as when this all first hit. It helps me to have a semblance of a routine, anyway. Hope you all are doing well. One new cast-on […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 12

How’s everybody holding up? I’m better than I have been, which I guess is all we can ask for in these crazy times. I just keep looking for the positives, the silver linings. One of those is all of the crafting I can do in the comfort of my home. When it became clear that […]

Me Made Mother’s Day

Late, I know, but we celebrated late ’cause Mom had the opportunity to celebrate with my sister in Chicago. I’ve made so many of these Crochet Geek Towel Toppers. Some people accuse them of being grandma-ish until they realize what great access they have to their dish towel. Plus, they’re really quick and fun to […]
