goes to @kimdenise0000 for the beautiful designed by @asatricosa, she is working on in our Jasper DK base in the colorway: Neon Gypsy. So squishy, and full of texture! Thanks so much for sharing Kim! @kimdenise0000 @kimdenise0000
Mayhem cardigan keeps rolling along. The stretchy squishy stitch pattern keeps it interesting. This Jasper DK from Primrose Yarn Co. is an absolute delight to work with.
I'm about to set this aside to do a test knit, but I'll get back to it as soon as I can. I love this project!
I’ve decided that a friend of mine needs a new hat for her birthday, which was a month ago (I’m a bit shit at the friend thing). The yarn was from the #bendigowoollenmills back room. I’m loving the flecks.
Etter en fantastisk ferie er det helt greit med litt typisk vestlandsvær Og da passer det jo perfekt at jeg er ferdig med min helt egne #kumulusbluse Hverdagslykke
Bambihuen er stadig min yndlings opskrift - nogensinde! Så simpel, og stadig med det sødeste udtryk. Køb den for 30,- kr og bliv klar til kolde morgener - link i bio
JAPANSKE ITO Sensai er en fnuglet blanding af glansfuld silke og blød mohair med en meget lang løbelængde (210m/20g). Strikkes kvaliteten alene på pind 3-3½ opnås en fnuglet strik med et smukt glansfuldt udtryk ellers kan kvaliteten med fordel strikkes sammen med andre kvaliteter. Vi har fået den hjem i nye farver og får dem snart på webshoppen
Takk for det nydelige garnet, og for teposen som fulgte med, @karmingarnoggaver Disse skal få bli med meg på Arendalsuka i dag og høre om oppvekst, farsrollen, influensavaksiner og hverdagskjærlighet mens de forvandles til en #stockholmsweater
I have this little problem. I have misplaced some yarn that may or may not have existed for my #weekendersweater. I’ve looked everywhere. You can read all about this most unfortunate affair today on the blog. #tributaryyarns
Here's the design that I was working on during the Initiate Knit Design workshop! For those who participated in the workshop, you may notice that the final design looks a bit different now! Even I had to make adjustments and changes to the design to get it the way that I want - and sometimes that involved frogging my work and going in a new direction. It's 100% normal, and yet I often see aspiring knitwear designers beat themselves up for "failing" to get the design that was in their head onto the needles. Yes, it's good to have a plan but it's more important to be flexible and adjust and pivot as needed. So grant yourself the grace and flexibility to take your design in a new direction. Even seasoned designers go through this too.
I talk more about my design process and thoughts in a brand new IGTV episode! Head over to my IGTV channel to watch it, and then come join me for a live-stream at 6pm CDT for a in-depth discussion, “What knitwear designers don’t show!”. #arohaknitsdesigns#transformyouryarn#spreadingaroha
Very often, I hear knitters highlighting the difficulties about working with dark coloured yarn, with some even resorting to using head lamps!
Seeing that I'm more confident with knitwear projects, I thought I best get cracking with Mum's 60th birthday present especially if I were to finish it by month's end when she visits. The pattern is straight forward (literally straight edges on all panels ) & has very little shaping compared to the cardigan I've just made for myself but as you could see, except for the beige neck & front bits, everything else is in this very dark blue - something I struggle a bit with (at the moment, I'm constantly perched in front of the sliding doors ). So, if any of you have got some tips on working with dark yarn (apart from head lamps ), please feel free to chip in. I'd be massively grateful!
