Planning for a road trip to Whistler and feeling like I should cast on at least a dozen new projects for the weekend. #knitterproblems
I put together this new colourway as an exclusive thing for the @knitsocial retreat in Whistler this weekend. But here’s the thing: it’s forest-y and magical and I love it too much to only make one batch. So I think what I’ll do is use the same colours but rearrange the stripes to make a sister colourway and include it in the next shop update. 🌲❄️🌲🍊🌲☀️🌲
Treasures from #vklive. Yarn spun by Ilga of @edgewoodgarden because did I mention I may be embarking on a new obsession? Pendant/keychain from @betsyfarmerdesigns (thank you!), bowl from @charansachar - a gift for @inanook, who had a hole in her life the exact shape and size of a knitting-themed ring dish. And handmade needles from Montana Mountain Knitting Needles because the needles are lovely and so was the couple, Sam and Terry, who were selling them.
I know, right? . The yarn is my first-ever skein of @spincycle_yarns and possibly the beginning of a dangerous obsession with hand spun yarn. (Dangerous because of the cost of acquiring said yarn, or because of the entirely new hobby I’ll be taking up? Only time will tell.). Swipe to see how good it looked caked up... . And, obviously, tiny bear ears are the best. #socute #likereallyreallyadorable . #knitting #spincycleyarns #knittersofinstagram
TWO THINGS: Thing 1. If you’re headed to @knitfitseattle this weekend, keep an eye out for my yarn at the @yarnonthehouse booth! Thing 2. If you’re not at #KnitFit but have had your eye on this colourway, head on over to my website! My newsletter subscribers have already had first pick, But there’s still some of this colourway on an MCN base left. :) . . #gaugedyeworks #knitstagram #knitting #indiedyer
Some shawl math for your Thursday afternoon. Plus a sneak peek at some colourways in progress. :)
I got to meet this cutie pie at VKL this weekend (the baby, not the shawl.) It was great to meet so many IG friends in real life and to gawk in silence as knitting heroes like Norah Gaughan or Jared Flood walked past. Huge thanks to @yarnonthehouse for hosting me in their booth, and to @soveryshannon for being such a fun road trip buddy! . . #Repost @woolvanknits (@get_repost) ・・・ Its finished! (And huge) this is pre-blocking... Baby shown for size 😁 I can't wait to see how big it gets with blocking... And how that lace blocks out! Happy #sunday everyone 😄 . . . . . #woolvanknits #wool #woollove #yarn #yarnlove #sundayknits #fo #playgroundshawl #gaugeddyeworks #rainbow #knit #knitting #knits #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknits #moreshawlsplease #alwaysknitting #nevernotknitting #knitlife #knitology #handmade #handknit #slowfashion #slowfashionoctober #strikke #tricot
