You guys, over the weekend I FINISHED MY FIRST SOCK! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Iโ€™ll admit that towards the end, it started getting tight with the toe decreases on the 9โ€ circulars, so I needed to use magic loop with the tiny circulars! I was sooo excited to use the Kitchener stitch as the finishing step and try on my sock for the first time! It is sooo soft and cozy! โœจ
.
I immediately started casting on my second sock to avoid Second Sock Syndrome (knitting one sock and then never getting around to finishing the second sock- I love how thereโ€™s an official name for it) ๐Ÿ˜†! Iโ€™ve been going around the house wearing my first sock to stretch it out and as motivation to complete the second one hehe! Who else is working on their first sock? Have you done two at a time socks before? ๐Ÿงฆ This whole experience has been so interesting, and Iโ€™m thankful that youโ€™ve been following along!

I love colour! Dyeing yarn is my way of capturing all of the beautiful colours I see in the world - and who doesn't love looking at shelves full of squishy soft yarn?โ €

My sock progress update! ๐ŸงฆI have been enjoying the process so much as completing each portion is a small victory โ˜บ๏ธ Iโ€™ve done the cuff, the leg, the heel flap, turned the heel, picked up stitches, and worked the gusset! I am now on the instep section where I can continue knitting around and around without much thought ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
I have been LOVING the @chiaogooinfo 9โ€ needles and itโ€™s definitely been a game-changer for me! There was always the hurdle of learning magic loop or buying DPNโ€™s that was holding me back from trying socks, and Iโ€™m sooo glad these tiny circulars exist! ๐Ÿ’•Thanks for following along with my progress, and Iโ€™m delighted that many of you have been inspired to try knitting your own socks or learn how to knit too ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

I love seeing what colourways people combine when they're creating fades. I think this combination of Attacked by Tiny Dragons, Blue and Hush is one of my current favourites! โ €

First hat for Fall of 2018 off the needles. I love how the cables look with this awesome worsted weight yarn from @allisonbarnesyarn Its the Paint It Black colourway and I can't get over how it looks like faded black denim. The hat is the Fair Winds Beanie by @churchmouseyarns and was a quick knit. Their designs are so well written and clear to follow. #cabledhat #allisonbarnesyarn #handdyedyarn #preppingforfall

You guys, I canโ€™t believe Iโ€™m finally doing it: I am attempting to KNIT A PAIR OF SOCKS! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ This has always been one of my goals and I am having so much fun using these teeny tiny 9โ€ circular needles with @allisonbarnesyarn โ€˜s gorgeous โ€œWhisperโ€ colourway ๐Ÿ’•

I was studying how to do the magic loop method a while back but I was intrigued when I heard about these tiny needles first from the @grocerygirlsknit . When I found out that Nicole of @woolfield.studio also uses these tiny circulars to make her stunning socks, I knew I had to give these a try! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป I absolutely love using these since there is no tugging the cord and I donโ€™t need to worry about multiple needles!

Iโ€™m following the โ€œMy Favourite Vanilla Socksโ€ pattern by @notsorryknitter which can be found free on Ravelry, and there is even an accompanying YouTube tutorial! Iโ€™ll keep you updated on my sock progress and I canโ€™t get enough of these gorgeous tiny stitches- it makes me so happy looking at them and sometimes Iโ€™ll just sit back and admire them hehe ๐Ÿค— Who else loves using 9โ€ circulars for their socks? Or are you a magic loop or DPN enthusiast? Iโ€™ve linked to the @chiaogooinfo needles I use in my stories, and the pretty rose quartz stitch marker is by @premknits ๐Ÿ’•

This is one of my colourplay experiments - it reminds me of the warm, glowing embers of a campfire, perfect for roasting marshmallows or making s'mores! Do you have any fun long weekend plans?โ €

Tonight I'm playing with the Fair Winds Beanie by @churchmouseyarns using this gorgeous hand dyed yarn by @allisonbarnesyarn in her Paint It Black colourway. I love it! It looks just like your favourite pair of faded black jeans. You may think it's a little early to start fall knitting but I'm sure we all heard it was snowing in Newfoundland yesterday! Ok I know it's way across the country but still you never can tell when you need a cabled hat. #cabledhat #allisonbarnesyarn #fallknitting #inthesummer

Allison Barnes is a talented indie yarn dyer; her colourful yarns, fun personality, and love of bold colours makes designing and creating content for her a lot of fun! .
Earlier this year, I updated her website, giving her a clean site that focused attention on images of her beautiful yarns with pops of her signature pink and black. .
Since then, Iโ€™ve developed social media content that showcases her love of colour, yarn and sense of humour; weโ€™ve also developed other collateral like business cards, packaging for her subscription program, and event postcards.

this week's post will be all about my experiences dyeing my own yarn! it gave me such an appreciation for all the talented dyers out there.

here are some of my favourite projects that i've made with hand-dyed yarn:
1: @autumnandindigo yarn - Erigeneia shawl by Silke Terhorst
2: @allisonbarnesyarn - Secret Paths shawl by @mijocrochet
3: @ilex.every.day yarn - #ILEXcroptop by @ticktockhobbies
what do you like to make with the hand-dyed yarn in your stash?

I love to take some days after swatching to let the pattern hang around my work space, lie around the living room and basically be in my way. I like to look at it often, imagine the finished project in all its variations in my mind for hundreds of times and only then, when it has absolutely grown on me, I block it, do the math and cast on. Maybe not the most productive approach, but I love that slowly increasing familiarity and affection towards a pattern and the yarn I'm getting ready to work with.
Currently brewing this little number with the most dreamy colourway from @allisonbarnesyarn โค๏ธ

I am so happy to let you all know that the lovely @knit_purl_ and my dear, dear Caroline @maranghuset are hosting a very special KAL for Hanami Shawl on their Ravelry group Knitting for Mindfulness. When they contacted me with this KAL concept, I immediately agreed, because it is so close to how I view and perceive knitting.
The KAL doesn't have deadlines or prizes, no rush, just a group of likeminded people getting together, working the project at their own pace, sharing what's on their mind, reflecting, chatting and enjoying slow knitting for what it really is - a process of creation to savour, relax and reflect when you really want and need it. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒธ So if this is something you can relate to and just want to hang out and knit your Hanami Shawl in a company of likeminded knitters, you're welcome to join in any time.
Today is also the last day you can get the pattern 20% off (until midnight PST May 21)

It's been one of those weeks where you start out on Monday, blink, blink and realise it's Friday already. And thanks to my friends I just remembered it's my Name Day, as well. ๐Ÿ™ˆ So I think it's a good time to have some cake and do something to slow the day and the mind down. A good book usually is my safe sanctuary. And this memoir by @jackiekaiellis (of the lovely @beaucoupbakery in Vancouver) is such an amazing treat - for mind and for eyes. After making circles around it and reading random excerpts for weeks in a store, I finally new it belongs in my bookshelf. I fell in love with the way this book captures moments in life, feelings and flavours that bind the whole story together so well. The journey through continents, through one's own mind and through culinary world (with amazing recipes) to find what it is that you are made of.
This and a bit more of swatching for my next collab with the amazing yarn from @allisonbarnesyarn (because if you haven't noticed yet, I'm hooked on her colourways ๐Ÿ˜…) Have a lovely Friday, everyone! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

In need of some photos for your business? I can help you with that!

I was so happy when Allison contacted me to do photos for her. @allisonbarnesyarn creates amazing luxury hand dyed wool yarn right here in Edmonton.

Did you know that the bobble stitch I use for Hanami Shawl is not the standard bobble? It is much smaller, uses only half of the yarn of a regular bobble, and blends in the fabric, creating just enough texture to be noticed, but not too much, that it would overwhelm the shape of twigs. And I adore the slight gradience of this @allisonbarnesyarn in Silver Grey. It adds such a lovely dimension to the stitches ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ

๐ŸŒธHanami Shawl is live on Ravelry!๐ŸŒธ To say I'm excited is a huge understatement. I've been dreaming of creating it the moment I saw @allisonbarnesyarn Whisper colourway a year ago. But it took time and a few failed swatches and sketches to see what exactly this yarn wanted to become.
Inspired by the short but magical time of cherry trees blossoming in spring, the fleeting beauty of the delicate flowers with almost translucent petals, that bloom so vigorously, covering the bare branches in clusters of light pink snow. ๐ŸŒธ Hanami (่Šฑ่ฆ‹ in Japanese) means "flower viewing" but is mostly referred to cherry blossom viewing in spring, when families and friends gather for picnics under the blooming cherry trees. It also has a very personal meaning to me, as it reminds me of my student years and beyond when we packed our picnics, with sake ๐Ÿถ and guitars in tow, heading to the park early to secure our picnic spot under these trees and then spent time enjoying the day, celebrating our friendship and singing songs (mainly from Yuzu ใ‚†ใš, and hearing them now brings me right back to those slightly cold spring days). โค๏ธ๐ŸŒธโค๏ธ๐ŸŒธ
It is an asymmetrical shawl worked sideways from a tip to its widest point featuring a budding twigs pattern and delicate lace edge ending with a picot bind off. And you can enjoy 20% off the pattern till midnight PST, May 21, no coupon code needed! Head to link in my bio. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŒธ
Also, I'm thrilled to let you know that @allisonbarnesyarn will be offering yarn kits for Hanami Shawl!!!! .
