Not Noro Knots

I love Noro Kureyon and Silk Garden for so many reasons. I love the crazy striping, I love the colors, I love the feltability, I love working with it. I don’t mind the vm at all. But all the knots? Knotting one color to one totally different color? If you don’t expect it, it can […]

Meet the FF Lace Relay Team

The first challenge of The Amazing Lace is to introduce the team. Here at The Fiber Fetishist, we are a big fan of teamwork and relays, so we have two relay segments in addition to our collection of supporters, and much overlap between the teams. The team selection process was very involved and everyone on […]

The Influence of Others

Yesterday, I felt like E of PokingMyEyesOut was a heavy influence on me. Check out the palette I worked in yesterday: [DH's first plain ol' black sock is started and Tovesta is onto the second ball.] But I do keep petting this yarn from Dave at Cabin Cove, which is about as far from black/charcoal […]

Stoller’s Call for Submissions

Debbie Stoller is looking for submissions for her new book, which is apparently going to be an “advanced” type of (knitting, not crochet) book. She’s especially looking for socks and sweaters [hey: my favorites!]. If you have a cool pattern and are interested in submitting it, go for it! I wish I had a cool […]

Lace Cardi Sanity Check

As I worked on my lace cardi back tonight, I got a little worried that the armscyes were too large. I ran upstairs before I bound off for the neckline and I grabbed three sweaters I wear that I felt were similar in size to what I am targeting with the lace cardi. The first […]

Crafty Links of the Morn

In Atlanta, two women steal almost $13k worth of yarn (over some period of time)! Chiengora + amigurumi = these cute cute amigurumi! E, this one is for you! As usual, Jenna of The Girl From Auntie uncovers something interesting — Lion Brand + a direct marketing firm? As she says, Acrylic Avon Parties?! The […]

Trek Along With Me Motivator

One of the benefits of the Trek Along With Me CAL/KAL is that it has motivated me to really get back into hiking. When I lived in Atlanta, I went hiking and camping regularly in the north GA mountains (Hi Julie!) and in Tennessee. I then moved to Seattle, where I went hiking semi-regularly (Hi […]

Another Quickie

DH is back, but he didn’t find any sockenwolle for me. Aw. However, I ordered some fun things today, including some hand-painted yarn from Dave over at Cabin Cove. I have been temped by his naughty needle cases (that might be NSFW if you work somewhere really high-strung). Check out his etsy shop — Cabin […]

Still Crushing

Exactly a week ago, I posted about my current crush. I’m glad I called it a crush and not a fling — this crush isn’t going away! I picked up the lace cardigan tonight once I had some free time. I wanted to finish up the armscye shaping to the point where you work even. […]

Contributing to the Stash of Others

I like to enable. I like to introduce other knitters/crocheters to yarns/fibers they haven’t played with before. I also like to make them stuff, but sometimes I feel I’m taking the fun out of it (for them) when I make them something! Adding to their stash seems like a fun thing to do, so when […]
