New favorite yarn February 3, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — fiberrox @ 11:56 am

I make a lot of baby sweaters and always aim for a yarn that’s easy to wash and dry because we all know about the things that come out of babies lol. I normally use Vannas choice which I still love but I have just found Brava from knitpicks it’s AMAZING it is soft and has many beautiful colors to choose from and the best thing is its only $2.99 for 100g what a deal. It comes in worsted (i’m using) sport and bulky. I started a sweater last night and here is a pic of the sleeve the colors are umber heather and tidepool so pretty.

New project pt 2 January 21, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — fiberrox @ 8:41 pm

Ok so I finished my sweater and it’s so cute but it’s a bit tight in the lower body so now I’m trying to decide if it will be easier to lose a few pounds or rip it out and re knit with a few more increases 🙂 I’ll keep you posted on the decision lol. We are having a very snowy weekend so I’m enjoying my flannel jammies and have traded my tea in for a rum and coke while knitting a super cute cabled poncho that was in the latest vogue 🙂

Happy Knitting

I am super excited I am actually making something for myself lol I almost never do that. I found an adorable sweater pattern on Ravelry last week it’s called Emmaline by Jennifer Wood. I am loving this patten it’s very girly and easy to follow. I will post pics in a couple of days when it’s all finished. Ok I have to go knit 🙂

New Years Knit Wishes December 30, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — fiberrox @ 9:36 pm

So I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I can continue to expand my knitting business without having too much stress on myself at certain times such as Christmas lol.

I work a full time job and am a single mom so I already have tons on my plate my ultimate dream would be to be able to have a yarn shop and knit full time however I don’t see that happening any time soon but that’s ok.

Back to my resolutions lol I am going to try to get my etsy shop going and possibly a website so I can sell my knit items through there instead of craft fairs.

I would also like to find a company that I could order wholesale since the selection around here isn’t great.

Tomorrow I am going to organize my knitting room so I can enjoy going back in there instead of cringing as I walk past lol.

Any thoughts on how I can do these things would be greatly appreciated 🙂

Happy New Year
Knit on my friends 🙂

Wow I can’t believe how long it’s been the year has really gotten away from me lol. I can’t believe it’s Christmas eve eve and I’m so excited.
For those that don’t know me Christmas is a HUGE deal in my house the countdown goes on for months lol this year I had the very best countdown calendar it was the 24 days of tea by Davids Teait was beautiful and I will be sad to open the last window tomorrow.
I am madly finishing the last of my orders and will be giving my poor achy hands a much needed/deserved break before I start the next batch lol.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas filled with family,love,food and of course some Christmas cheer.

HAPPY KNITTING
