Hello guys:

If anyone is interested, I've started offering my Alpaca/Wool and Mohair/Wool Yarns in smaller skeins for those just looking for a smaller project, like a scarf, hat, gloves, etc.  I used to offer them only in half pound skeins, but I've got some 4-ounce skeins listed now that are only $12.50 each for those smaller projects.  Here are just a couple of pics to give you an idea:

There are quite a few others, although you have to browse through my increasingly lengthy list of items to find them Smiley  http://fearlessfibers.etsy.com

Have a great day all!  I'm going out for sushi for lunch ... yum, yum!  Happy Birthday to me!

2  Sweater finished at last :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by fearlessfibers on: October 28, 2006 04:30:15 PM
I finally found time to weave in the ends of this sweater last night.   



Feels so good to finish something more substantial than yet another pair of socks Smiley

No pattern on this one.  I just designed it as I went, but it's not really an "original" design.  It's loosely based on my vague recollection of something I saw in a pattern book a few years ago (perhaps Filati ... perhaps Gedifra ... I can't recall).  The one in the book was a spring sweater, cotton in white and pastels and thinner striping up top, if my memory serves me right.  Mine is done with six semi-solid colors of sportweight superwash merino.  The bottom section uses a slip stitch pattern to create a slightly stiffer fabric that doesn't quite cling like a rib, but still creates a bit of narrowing effect at the waist.

Anyhow, it's done now and I'm reasonably happy with it.  More details on my blog:  http://fearlessfibers.blogspot.com.

Now on to something new!

Our newest holiday plate which was just finished this yesterday and uploaded to ETSY this morning. What do you think?


Cute holiday plates, Serendipity!

Perhaps holiday season is slowly beginning?   I listed a set of Christmas yarn several weeks ago, thinking that perhaps knitters might need an early start to finish projects for the holidays.  It sat in my shop for a few weeks, but it sold a couple of days ago.  Yeah!  Let's start seeing those "holiday" sales! 

Here's a pic of the set.  I have another listed now:  http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=572716.

For those who like to knit socks, I posted a free pattern for these socks on my blog:  http://fearlessfibers.blogspot.com.



The yarn is available in my Etsy shop:  http://fearlessfibers.etsy.com.  The pattern uses the regular Merino Wool Sock Yarn (not the superwash, which knits at a tighter gauge and would require adjustment to the pattern).  You can, of course, also substitute any sock yarn you like with a similar gauge.

5  Lapping Water Socks Finished :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by fearlessfibers on: October 19, 2006 02:09:21 PM
I just finished a new pair of socks that I'm calling "Lapping Water Socks."  Nothing terribly special about them really, but I'm happy with them Smiley 



More pics and the pattern are posted on my blog if anyone's interested:  http://fearlessfibers.blogspot.com.

Hey folks:

How's this for an over-the-top fabulous shawl!  It was designed by an amazing designer, Anne Hanson of http://KnitSpot.com and is available for purchase there. 

The shawl was designed with my own Fearless Fibers Laceweight Cashmere, available in my shop:  http://fearlessfibers.etsy.com.

It's been such a thrill to watch this shawl progress from design to finished product.  Anne is such an AMAZING designer.   Yippee!!

Hi folks:

I just listed a cashmere shawl in my hubbys Etsy store: http://fearlessknits.etsy.com   I doubt anyone will really even see it, as his store is pretty much inactive.  We set it up thinking wed list some knit items from time to time, but havent really done much of anything with it.

The shawl is pure cashmere.  Although the price may appear high compared to most Etsy items, its ridiculously inexpensive.  The cashmere alone would retail for close to the price and it took somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 hours to knit.  Im just listing it because I have no use for it and know Ill never wear it.  I just knit it because I love to knit and wanted to do a cashmere shawl.  Before I give it away as a gift, I thought Id see if anyone is interested in buying it, because then I could break into some more cashmere and knit another without feeling guilty for being so self-indulgent and extravagant Smiley

Anyhow, if you know someone who might be interested in an over-the-top fabulous, one-of-a-kind shawl, please pass the word along!

fearlessfibers, my mouth is LITERALLY watering at the sight of your sock lovers yarn set! Ooo do I want to sink my fingers into that yarn!

Note to self: new Etsy selling goal: Make $66.05 so I can buy that yarn!!!

Thanks likespointysticks ... I'm so glad you like it Smiley  It's only $12 per skein as a set, but hey, I only charge $12.99 per skein anyway so it's not a super-duper-bargain.  I don't know how much longer I can keep my prices so low, but I really do want to!  I love giving folks top quality stuff at a really good price.  Makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

If there's any one color in the set you particularly like that's not listed individually in my shop, feel free to me know and I can post a single for you at the $12.99 price.

Just for fun, here's a pic of socks I recently made with my Saltwater Taffy colorway:
 

Well, sock (singular) anyway.  Didn't have the pair done when I took the pic, but they're both done now.  I love 'em Smiley

Hi all:  Here's a sweater that I actually finished a couple of months ago but haven't been able to show off since my hubby hardly wore it before the weather changed.  Thought I'd share it with all of you, even though this one belongs to hubby and won't be sold.

It's one of my own design and is made of Elsbeth Lavold's Silky Wool.  More info, including stitch closeup and pattern, as well as an explanation of the goofy face in the picture are in my blog if anyone is interested:  http://fearlessfibers.blogspot.com  (That's my way of saying, please visit my blog and leave a comment before I give up on it entirely.  Hee, hee.)

I was also just curious from folks here whether anyone ever sells larger items such as this on Etsy?  I haven't tried to list any "real" knit items because I just assume that most Etsy buyers are looking for small, less expensive items.  Has anyone had success with higher priced items -- say $100 or more?  Just curious.  It's not worth the time and effort to knit and sell sweaters, but I love to knit so much that I wouldn't mind not making anywhere near what it's worth, but I don't want to do anything larger if it has no hope of selling.

So here's the pic of the sweater, with hubby making goofy faces:



Happy Knitting!
