What do wedding planning and knitting have in common?  COLOR!!!!  My sister Erinn, the Event Planner, and I frequently find ourselves discussing color.  What colors complement one another?  What colors are “in” right now?  What colors go with each season?  Etc…  Recently she has been debating what colors she would like to use for her winter wedding in December 2010.  Originally she had decided on majolica blue, warm olive and slate, but as other planning is coming together, her vision is changing.  Lately (as in the last couple of days) she has been leaning towards the color plum.  Plum is, in my opinion, a fantastic color.  It’s warm, yet chic.  Inviting and romantic.  Complimentary to many, many other colors.  Really, it’s a pretty kick ass color.  All of which are excellent reasons to choose a color for an event such as a wedding.  Not only that, but I do think my hair color and skin tone would go excellent with a plum bridesmaid dress.  hehe

In honor of my sister possibly changing her color scheme, I give you ‘Perfectly Plum‘:

IMG_3162Perfectly Plum is a kettle dyed yarn made of vibrant shades of plum. Approximately 430 yards (100 grams) of luxurious 100% Ultrafine Organic Merino Wool in sock weight make this yarn incredibly soft and springy. Enough for an adult pair of socks, fingerless mitts/gloves or perhaps a lace project. The possibilities are endless…
Certified Australian Organic Merino Wool.

Available at Fiber Fervor.

OK, so I got the yarn for my first Patons project and have been trucking away on these fair isle socks.  I have never, until now, realized how tedious fair isle knitting can be.  Probably because I am making socks.  Thin yarn, loads of stitches and LOTS of concentration.  This is not a project in which I can read and knit at the same time.  In order to help combat the cursing and headaches, I am using my super cool chart keeper thingie from KnitPicks.  Every lace, cable or fair isle knitter NEEDS this thing.  I redid the fair isle pattern on my computer.   Blew it up to a size that is actually, you know, readable.  However, I am STILL getting lost!!!  I need suggestions people.  How do you organize your fair isle projects?


OK, so doesn’t this yarn look YUMMY?!?!?!  Seriously, I could fondle it all day long.


Lilypad Lace is going to be a hard skein to part with one day.  I might even shed a tear at the post office.


I also added Rainbow Sorbet to my Organic Sock Yarn line.

This morning was just like most of my mornings, groggy and not really ready to start my day.  With coffee in hand, I sat down at my desk, opened up my email and discovered that, yes, I SOLD MY FIRST SKEIN OF YARN!  What can I say?  Pure joy took over and suddenly, I was awake.  What a great way to start my day!

Last week I finally got around to setting up and “opening” an Etsy Shop.  I really haven’t said all too much about said shop because I was waiting to get more inventory.  Well, I think now is a better time than any to announce that FIBER FERVOR is open for business!!  I want to go home right now and dye more yarn.

Sold Sunburst

‘Sunburst’ is made of vibrant shades of orange, gold and yellow.
220 yards (100 grams) of luxurious 100% Ultrafine Organic Merino Wool in worsted weight make this yarn incredibly soft.  Do not fret my friends, I will be stocking the store with more of this yarn in other colorways soon!

The best part about this sale is what the buyer wrote in the ‘Message from the buyer section’:  “If this yarn were a boy, I would marry it!”  FREAKIN’ AWESOME.  I am elated to sell my very first skein of yarn to someone who LOVES fiber as much as I do.
