A few days ago I was asked #widn by the talented @elfriedajabir. Been ghosting from insta for the past week or so buuuut I've been keeping busy sorting out this chunky custom order sweater. All the bits are finished and I'm just wrapping up my least favourite part: assembly. It seems simple enough but I always end up underestimating it and spending 2 days or so doing that alone.
My back aches from being hunched over hand seaming bits for hours on end. I'm digging the colour combo and the outcome thus far though so... worth it? 💁🏾♀️
Lace is my absolute favorite thing to knit, which is probably why I love @softsweater so much. I've been itching to cast on all of the shawls from Gentle Armour since the moment I got the ebook, and I could resist no longer. I'm two lace repeated into Some Time Alone and I am already in love. 😍

I finally got around to taking a picture of a finished object. Polar Opposites cowl by #thepluckyknitter . Made with the Nifty base in Nice Stems (green) and Spiffy base (cashmere and silk!) in Tartan, held double. This feels like butta! Loving it!

Am I the only one obsessed with the double seed stitch? If I could, I'd knit everything in them! Thanks @laurenmychelle @northernknitsandpurl for the #widn tag. Passing this on to @bundlehandmade @apella.knits and @northern.knits if you lovely ladies would like to share. #thepetiteknitter#knitoholic
I’ve been craving a colorwork yoke sweater for a while. When I saw the beautiful Fern & Feather by @knit.love.wool in Lookbook No 4 in @byhandserial I knew I had found my next project. Stash busting was a bonus when I realized that this Concord Grape Mountain Mohair by @greenmtnspinnery was perfect. Ordered a skein of @quinceandco Owl and I was off and running. Challenging my brain (and hands) by throwing the main color with my right hand and using the continental method with my left hand for the secondary color. 😝 Am I the only one who thinks the reverse side is almost as beautiful as the “right” side?? #knittersofinstagram#knittinglove#knittingaddict#knittersofig#knittingnerd
Experimented with mixing up the skirt lace on this #bloom since the diamonds didn't seem to work right with the striping. I'm pretty happy with the results. Just need to steam block and take some better pics in the daylight. #caroncakes#ravelry#dresses#knittersofinstagram
Why yes, yes I will take this King's Crown Blackwood for a quick spin before send off. You betcha I will. (And I'm sorry to say I cannot remember or find the name of this stitch! 😮 If you recognize it, please share so I can credit.) 💕
Managed to snag myself some amazing yarn from @noblerubydesigns at @gorgeous_yarn_store here in Brandon MB! I already have a cowl and a pair of socks planned for myself after all my custom orders are complete!
