I'm still a novice at matching yarns to projects, and have never had that moment of "I know exactly what to create with this!" upon encountering a skein of yarn. But as soon as I received that New Zealand handspun for Christmas, I knew it was destined to be the nubby, natural toque of my dreams.
"TCS Simple Hat" by @thecraftsessions with an extra inch of stockinette to accommodate my giant skull.
Obsessed with my colors for the #saturateshawl
Pattern: Saturate Shawl by @orangeknits
Yarns: from left to right, @primroseyarnco, 2 from @wobblegobbleyarn , @ancientartsyarn , @yoshiandlucyknits
Also! The yarn from @ancientartsyarn came from my last @fibreshare share partner, @katrinajknits ! ✌🏼
❄️ One reason we moved to North Carolina was to get away from the snow… Not so today. ❄️ But on the bright side, when you have a new fair isle sweater to post about, the falling snow is sweet! It's too big in length, and I'll be ripping some of the yoke out, which will help shorten everything. I think it's pretty nonetheless though. 😊 ❤️ #fairisleknitting#snowday#trytryagain#knittersofinstagram
✨Yarn is the canvas, the needles the paintbrush. What art are you going to create today? How will you spin magic at the tips of your fingers? There’s wonder to be found even in the most unlikely of places ✨
Yarn is from @theaustralianwoolstore

Admittedly, it's hard to see what's going on here, but I'm working on the button band, which wraps all the way up one side, around the hood and back down in one continuous, 4ft, monstrous strip 😱 The pattern called for one needle. HAHA, NOPE! So I had to wait nearly a month to track down the three long needles I'm using
Anyway, it's been fun!
Not all knitting projects can be winners right away. I started to knit these mukluks for my mom as a gift and I realized I would be playing some major yarn 🐥 by the end. Time to rip everything back and make them a bit shorter. I have to tell myself it will be worth it at the end. 😑 I hate ripping back! Pattern: Wanderers: Modern Mukluks by @dreareneeknits Yarn: @malabrigoyarn Rios in Azules and @cascadeyarns 220 in Natural LYS: @closeknitpdx
