@frauluknits hat mich gefragt was ich genau vor einem Jahr gestrickt habe. Es war der wunderschöne #bossanovasweater von @weareknitters den ich auch dieses Jahr sehr sehr gerne tragen werde.
Und was habt ihr letztes Jahr gestrickt @simplelottchen @pretty_wooly @susi_strickliesel_knitdesign .
@frauluknits tagged me for #whatiknitlastyear ... it was the beautiful #bossanovasweater by @weareknitters and I still love it.

Putting the finishing touches to my yarn collection that I'm taking to the @woolgatheringaustralia retreat next weekend. I've picked out some of my favourite yarns for shawl knitting. I love looking for special and interesting blends for shawl projects and can't wait to share some of my favourites with those attending my workshop. These three grey beauties are definitely at the top of my list - Tamar from @blackeryarns, stunning @isleyarns and a new skein from @martinslab which is a Polish wool called Zelazna.
I also treated myself to a special candle for my office today by @zenmomentscandles ... from a lovely local shop in my new hometown @behindthetrees_ ...
We've had a glorious few weeks in our new home, so happy we moved here 💛
Are you coming to Wool Gathering next weekend? Can't wait to meet you.
Wishing you all a glorious wool filled weekend 💛
ps: did you know you can now buy Blacker yarns in Australia from @skeinsisters !! I'm super stoked to see one of my favourite British brands available in Aus.
I've got that Friday feeling once again and we're heading into another bank holiday so it's extra exciting 👏😆🎉
For this week's #followfriday post I'm going for a big smack of bright colour and creativity from the amazing @lauraalgarra 👊😜💖💜💙💛😍💖💜💚 Her photos always blow me away and her style is 👌 (I've also included her gorgeous cat Tiger as he's too cute to leave out!) 😻😻
Have a great day everyone 😘😘
I should be sleeping, but instead I'm up snapping sockies cuz I just finished P4,S1 of my 2017 sock season 😜 End woven in and all, woot woot! Oh boy, time for bed! #handknitsocks#dailyknitsocks#handknit
✨YARN DUST ✨
I'm in the middle of a long skeining session at home, full of beautiful yarn dust in the afternoon sunlight generated by every tidying snap. The wide side eyes are from watching The Handmaid's Tale 👀
I used to dislike skeining, but I'm completely over that feeling. It feels very zen now, and fulfilling when I see a giant yarn pile in a bin at the end.
I'm finally feeling good / feeling ready for it, and have a lot of skeining to prove it: there's a #KindredRed shop update coming Monday, May 1! Time TBD, but mid-morning PST.
It's one of my favorite shawls to wear! Crescent shaped, squishy, and lots of lace. Even though it's reminiscent of snow I'm pretty sure I'll still enjoy it this spring. 🌿 ---
A close up view of my pattern I Smell Snow Shawl available on Ravelry. Yarn is from @theyarnathomemom it's lovely! #sewknitc#sewknitcdesigns
Just a few lovely things that go into making a doll... When I first started I honestly didn't realise how many things you need and how much time it takes to make a handmade item... But the rewards of seeing something you have made with your own hands is truly worth it! By the way how cute is this donut pom pom maker?!? And as always this wool for my girls hair is divine! Hope everyone has a lovely day 😘✨💕
My buddy ol' pal @valkyrie_fibers tagged me next for the 10 Confessions of an Indie Dyer.... here goes, nothing too exciting 😑
💛One of my favorite parts of dyeing is when the yarn is dry and I get to carefully twist them up and squish them.
💛 I tend to go to bright/neon colors mostly but have to remember that not everyone loves neon. 🤔
💛Fingering is my favorite weight. To dye and to knit.
💛I spin my yarn in the washer to get all the water out. It REALLY helps it dry fast and it stays perfect in the skein still.
💛I'm terrible at naming my colors. And usually I dye then name. I rarely plan a color with a name in mind. 💛I like to drink beer when I'm dyeing and listen to @beyonce's Lemonade.
💛I don't think of other dyers or yarn shops as competition. I love supporting other dyers/shops and the more yarn the merrier. We should all be #bestfiberfriends
💛Sometimes I let my 6-year-old name colors for me so I don't have to think so much. 💛I LOVE looking on IG at all the indie dyed yarn and then I want to buy it all, and usually I'm busy and I miss all the shop updates then there is nothing left 😭
💛As @kindred.red said, I wish I had a project manager or just a life manager so I knew what I was doing and when.
I'm gonna tag @plankandstella @wobblegobbleyarn @paperdag
Do you want to play? 😘
