Vice President Harris is making her mark on the Washington-area crochet scene

"When Vice President Harris visited a woman-owned yarn shop in Alexandria last month, she mentioned a little-known fact about herself that left the fiber arts community a bit giddy.

The new vice president is a crocheter."

The vice president — and her hobby — have inspired a crocheted mural, a crocheted doll and a burgundy hand-dyed yarn.

03/13/2021

"My mother tried to teach me to knit when I was young, but the only thing I could manage was to hold the needles like she did. Decades later, when I was on assignment in Beijing, China, in the early 1980s, an expat thought she could teach me how to knit a "simple" Fair Isle yoke sweater. It was a hopeless endeavor. The local yarn was riddled with sharp wooden splinters. By the time I had given up, my fingertips were ripped up and bloodied.

It's a miracle that I bothered to try again years later. But the only thing I could knit was scarves. I would still be knitting scarves with yarn from the local five and dime had I not found Fibre Space. It was a revelation. The yarn selection is amazing, the accessories are delightful, and the yarnistas are so knowledgeable. Danielle, the owner, is brilliantly creative and actively supports other small businesses in Old Town Alexandria and well beyond. She's the real deal.

Eventually, a dear friend of mine took me to her weekly knitting class, and I started to see that the possibilities were endless. Not only does knitting help me stay creative, it sharpens my mental acuity and is highly meditative. Knitting has helped me form lifelong friendships. I know that I'm a little late to the game, but I sure am glad I persisted.” -Lily #fibreinfocus @smcimage

Hi. My yarn arrived yesterday. Is the blue the main and the grey multi the contrast? Looking forward to getting started. Have a great day.
Danielle Romanetti hey girl! My mama Debra Ruffing was just reading her newest Southern Living magazine and what to our wondering eyes should appear but this awesome article featuring your shop and you!!!! So proud of you making it in the big time girl!
Hey! Are you guys selling any yarn pom-poms premade? Looking at some holiday crafts and want to shop local.
Made a quick stop at your glorious shop! So much to check out. The Spincycle selection is fabulous. So great to see the colors all together in person. Be back when I save up more money’
My daughter is always sending me beautiful yarns & accessories from Fibre Space. This is a shawl I made using Noro Ito yarn & Gilliatt yarn. I really love the vibrant colors!
I want to go
Is the free face mask promo still going? I saw in an email today it was and wanted to double check. I was in on the weekend and spent over $50, but didn’t get one. No biggies if it’s not.
Can I stop by tomorrow for guidance on how to set up waist shaping on my top down raglan sleeve sweater in the round? It’s my first time trying this new concept. I can’t seem to find a decent video that helps me. Let me know. Thanks.
When will the “Making a Pom Pom” video be released for the Mission cashmere hat project?
I want to thank Fiber Space for my recent order. Love everything I received most importantly the yarn. they also included a FaceMask that I love. Thank you so much for the prompt response and delivery. So much fun to finally order from a place I have followed for years. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Can you use these photos in your monthly competition? I don't have access to Instagram and haven't been able to set up an account. You very promptly shipped me Biogarn Organic Shetland "Iced" a few weeks ago, and I used it in this sweater I designed, using a peerie from Alice Starmore and two borders from KnitPicks.
Thank you for the new mask!! Kickboxing!!
