So many irons in the fire and yet here I am, #procrastiknitting. Please tell me I’m not the only one that does this. ♀️ These mittens have been in my queue for ages...and mittens make a great summer time knit! I dyed up a bunch of my Yak Sock just for it- of you want to join me, let me know and you’ll get first dibs on this pairing before I put it on the website this weekend.
Details: • 2 skeins of Yak Sock (70% superwash Merino/20% Yak/10% nylon) 430 yards each. • pattern on #ravelry • special price: $50 plus shipping •
Just a heads up that my shop Pineapple Yarn will be reopening tomorrow, Friday May 18 at 8 pm EST! I forgot to show these two skeins on my podcast: the first is a fun bright sock blank, the second is Little Paper Umbrellas on my sparkle base 🤩
Definitely in mad love with this polka dot lining and the burrowing owls by Charley Harper on the outside. I’m spending this rainy morning doing a bit of sewing before I head to my job at my lys. No knitting for me until a piano lesson this afternoon and that feels like a long time to wait...When is your knitting time today?
Loving every stitch of the Daxis pattern from this month’s KnitCrate!
Yarn: LaBrebis Marled Sock from @knitcrate
Pattern: Daxis by Susan Hogl for KnitCrate

Just knitting up a sock on a beautiful day! On my podcast I mentioned that this colorway was called Bali - nope, it’s definitely called Fiji ♀️ and this is what I get for using my memory instead of notes!!
Speaking of my podcast, THANK YOU sooo much to all of you who tuned in last week, and have sent the most wonderful feedback. Seriously, knitters are the best kind of people, but we all knew that already, didn’t we??
My tendency towards procrastination has reared its ugly head in my knitting. I now have 2 pairs of afterthought everything socks that have been languishing in a drawer until I figure out how I want to finish them. I have a set of mini skeins, but I’ve been staring at them for so long that now I have no idea if I think they’re the right fit (swipe through) The ones on the left are @thefawnknits in Fantastic Mr. Fox (from the Wes Anderson mini-skein set). The ones on the right are @ontheround Silver Linings Tweed. Heeeelp! #knitsocks#procrastiknitting#afterthoughteverythingsocks#ontheround#foxandfawn
Starting a new project with these beauties! 🤩 Clockwise from top: Pineapple Yarn fingering weight in Bubblegum, Heartbreaker, Cobalt, Saturn, and Waikiki. A closeup of Heartbreaker - it is on my Panda base which contains bamboo and has beautiful drape and strength!!
@joann_stores haul from last night! Got all of this fun stuff, plus some cookies for $20! The bags were only $1.59. The yarn was $7.99 and is a brand called Fashion Plus (?). The fusible interfacing was $2.99 a piece. Hooray!
It's huge, it's kinda ugly, and it sat in a basket for a couple months while I tried to find the motivation to weave all the ends in, but now that it's finally finished holy balls is it comfy. #procrastiknitting
Just finished a little outfit for my sweet boy! It will probably be the first - and last - time he wears it He’s outgrown it in the time it’s taken me to knit it!!
Pattern: Sofia by Sanne Bjerregaard (free pattern!) Yarn: Pineapple Yarn fingering merino/silk blend in Diamond Head
Give me all the lavender knitting projects and none of the finals I'm supposed to be doing (15 days till graduation means procrastiknitting is at its finest)
I have so much I want to do today, but I don't feel good so I'm knitting in bed But that does allow me to try out my new favorite gadget. A stitch/ row counter! #procrastiknitting#knitting
Thanks to all of you for making everyday at Granny Bird's Wool Shoppe so amazing! Your visits, talks, timmies deliveries and special gifts are very heartwarming. Thank you for being part of the Granny Bird Community!
My face when I'm wearing a knitting shirt knowing damn well I'm crocheting
Wow. Today I'm so grateful for the friends who make me feel free to be me I had such a lovely day! I wish you all the same blessed feeling with much crafting ahead
P.S. did I tell y'all I'm making the #flatironshawl from @tlyarncrafts?? Because crocheters need shawls too!! (fave quote of the year, BTW Toni )
I meant for it to be a side project for when my #findyourfadeshawl has me emotionally drained but lately I find myself torn between which project I want to work on
