Fiber Arts Friday — The Bump
September 2018 Moms

Fiber Arts Friday

So, a few of us in here are knitters/crocheters/weavers/sewers/etc and I thought we could do a weekly thread?

What's your go-to fiber art?

What are you working currently on?

Re: Fiber Arts Friday



  • My current go to fiber art is knitting. I particularly like knitting socks. I just like how quickly they work up.

    I'm currently working on the Aine socks by Orange Knits and I'm loving the texture.

  • I got into knitting a few years ago. I'm making socks right now, too! Will post a pic later.

  • I go towards crocheting. I tried knitting and just couldn’t get it. I’m not currently working on anything but will start on baby afghans when we move in a couple months.

  • I mostly crochet but also sort of know how to knit - I'm very much beginner level on knitting. Crocheting is so much faster for me, and easier for things like hats. But for some things I really like the look of knitting better. I don't spend a whole lot of time on either one lately.

    I did crochet a tiny baby hat to use in our pregnancy announcement. I'll grab a picture later.

  • @starla I actually created that pattern! I still haven't gone through on posting it on Ravelry yet. I still have so much math to do for other sizes. So far it's only a 2T/3T size. I can try to get some kinks worked out in it and send you a Google Doc link.

  • Also, @starla is that the Hermione's Everyday Socks pattern? It's one of my favorite sock patterns.

  • I’m a wannabe weaver. I’m currently stuck waiting for some backordered yarn but should get back to it soon. I have a gorgeous warp planned out and can’t wait to play with different fiber wefts to make some  cowls/infinity scarfs as well as my first baby wrap. This will be my second attempt at this warp as I messed up the first one and had to cut it off the loom and start over. Here is a pic of my last attempt on the warping board:  
    and the full plan:

    It sure is! I had a couple problems with it but figured it out. It could have used some more detailed instructions.

  • I am so impressed!  You guys are all making me feel loke a slacker! Lol I have knit a handful of things in my day, but I was always so slow, I never stick with it.  I would love to pick something back up again.  Been thinking about making baby clothes too, now with LO on the way...

  • @stothi Weaving is on my "one day" list as well. 

    I didn't learn to knit until a few years ago when I decided I really wanted a pair of handknit socks. Then I taught myself off YouTube, haha.

  • Also, I'm LOVING everyone's projects!
    jhjocelynBusinessWife
  • Le sigh. Drooling over these projects. I’ve never picked up a hobby like this and now will probably not get the chance for at least 4-5 years!  :D
