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 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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

WIP it into Shape

When I first started crocheting over a decade ago, one of my favorite things about it was the absence of a “block.” Unlike writing or drawing, I never ran out of ideas for things I wanted to make. What a simpler time. I’m sad to report that I am in a yarncraft “block,” which is […]
