Favorite color::😬 I don’t mind pops of color, but personally, I’ll go for neutral every time. The color the sheep or the cotton grew is usually fine with me 😉 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 🐑 In the run-up to #StitchesWest I am missing so many #fiberuarychallenge posts but COFFEE ☕️ and every yarn weight but don’t usually go below a US 6 needle😬 Sweater is Renee (named for amazing model @reneemwilson ) knitted with @avfkw Dawn cotton/wool yarn and will launch at #stitcheswest So come see us booths 918-920 and say hi and try on sweaters!!!
Congratulations @mrscraftsandbeer - you are the January winner of the #cocoknitsmethod drawing!! Email email@example.com to claim your $100 worth of goodies🥳 ・・・ Finally remembered to take a picture of my Emma (Version C) by @cocoknits ! It stretched out a wee bit when I wet blocked it, but that just gives me a little more leeway for layering! Still needs buttons and pockets (my one major mod: closing up the side-seam pockets in favor of patch pockets...eventually), but it’s wearable and warm! #cocoknitsmethod #emmaversionc #ellaraelacemerinochunky #handknit #handknitsweater #knitting #iamarealknitter #knitsnotbots #stricken #tricot #breien #strikking #stickning
Okay, I’m going to try to catch up with @creativececi ‘s #fiberuarychallenge - • When not knitting I’m mostly working with my 3-woman team to keep the wheels of @cocoknits turning- as any other self-employed small business owner can tell you, It. Never. Ends. We are infinitely grateful to every person who supports us 🙏🏽 you keep us busy!👍🏽 • First project is first photo. No one told me a steeked, Norwegian color-work cardigan was not really first-project appropriate 😂. So I just did it! • Current project: 2nd photo, New pattern launching at Stitches West!! That’s Dawn yarn from @avfkw and a knitted sweatshirt I’m working on! •Podcast: Well, the only one I’ve been on, @knitcollage Collage Creative, of course☺️ it was so fun to talk with Amy! Also listening to @avfkw Reverberate and learning so much backstory... Okay, that’s enough for now☺️ Back to work! #knittersofinstagram #sweater #knitting #steek #alreadysteekedalong
Already 4 days late, but I’ll try and keep up with #fiberuarychallenge - Hi, I’m Julie, owner/founder of Cocoknits! I started with knitwear design, had a little sweater business back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. Now I design both hand knitting patterns and tools for makers- because what I wanted didn’t exist. My goal from the outset has been to bring the joy of knitting and making to every single person who is interested- no matter who/what/where- come join the party, all are welcome and celebrated🥰 . . #knittersofinstagram #fiberuary #sweaterweather
