Spring Hiatus

Hey everyone! Fuzzzy Green Fibers is taking a few weeks off beginning now (March 2020) going for 6-8 weeks (Early-Mid May).

I’ll be using this time to relax, focus on gardening, parenting, maintaining the house, but also working on new & exciting things!

Some of you may know that we are going to be building a house this year. We’re hoping it will start in a few weeks this Spring, but we’re not entirely sure of the timeline at the moment. The COVID-19 pandemic may affect permits & paperwork, and possibly construction itself. But anyway, that will be going on in the background here!

In fiber-related happenings, one the shop is back it, it will likely look a bit different – I’ll be switching the shop to a different platform that is hopefully more user-friendly for the shopper and for myself. And I’ll have at least one new base for you (sport weigh, anyone?).

We’ll also still be doing Rustbelt Hippies Knitcasts on YouTube and hosting Knitalongs in our Ravelry Group.

If you want to keep up with our Knitcast, Knitalongs, my knitting and any updates I have during my hiatus, sign up for the Fuzzzy Green Fibers Newsletter.

So with that, we’ll see you in May!

Stay safe & happy making,

Larissa

Dragons Socks

My husband requested socks knit up from the Game of Thrones Dragons set colors. He wanted a mismatched pair of (spoiler) “whichever ones are still alive”, so he got one Drogon (red) and one Rhaegal (green) with Viserion (gold) toes, heels, and cuffs. He loves them and is going to parade around in them when Season 8 of Game of Thrones premiers in April. I knit them on my High Twist Merino Tencel Sock base. I broke into 3 skeins, so I have enough to make 2 more pairs for myself! I have some of these sets left, and on my Natural Sock bases. I realize buying 3 skeins of yarn for 1 pair of socks is a lot, so let me know if you’d be interested in Dragons sock sets in some capacity!

PSL

I know it’s not the right season for Pumpkin Spice Everything, but I recently was reminded of my PSL colorway. A customer asked me to turn skein of Merino Silk Sock into a sock tube on my circular sock machine. It is so fantastic looking, I need to recreate PSL since it started out as a “Once in a Lifetime” colorway to reduce excess dye waste. Anywho, that’ll be in development for this year for sure!
