I was tagged by the lovely @shesrooted for #widn several days ago. Sorry it's taken me so long Tara! 😘 Make sure you check out the beautiful blanket she is working on! 💗 I have been super busy prepping our house to sell and making trips back and forth, but I've been sneaking in a few rows here and there on my new beanie design. I decided to take a bit of a break from the beanie to clear my head 😜 and work on another pattern project! I designed this cowl a while back, and never re-listed it once it sold. I decided to start writing up the pattern for it, and I will most likely have a few ready to ship color options when the shop opens back up! What are you ladies up to @tlbpatterns and @agirlandherneedle? If you'd like to play. No pressure at all! 😊❤️ #wip#crocheteveryday#mymustardmakes
I have an extreme case of #castonitis ! Right now, there are two shawls, two sweaters, a hat, a pair of socks, some mittens, and my year long afgan project hanging out on my needles. I need to get myself under control!
My main projects have been my two sweaters, one for me, and one for my partner, but today I'm spending a little time with this beautiful Snowmelt Shawl, by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade. This was released as an MKAL, but I'm far too anxious for MKALs, so I'm late in the game but loving this shawl. So far, this has been a lot of lovely, squishy garter, which is a nice change of pace from the miles of stockinette waiting for me on my sweaters! I simply can't wait to curl up in this Merino cashmere delight on a cool autumn night!
Yarn is from one of my favorites: @frabjousfibers. I feel like I mention them all the time, but seriously their yarn is amazing!!!
This photo shows the difference between identical skeins that have been twisted differently. For the sheik on the left, I showed it as it emerges from the dye pot but the one on the right has been rrskeined to show how the colors interact. I love to show both options whenever possible so you have the best idea of what you're getting when you order!
Have you signed up for the #SockVirgin challenge yet? Or the #SockStar challenge? They're both free and they'll both teach you to knit socks - once challenge is toe up and the other is cuff down. I'm determined to fill the world with sock knitters! 😃➰💜➰😃 Go to www.DanaGervaisDesigns.com/resources or click the link in my profile to sign up
I put the first (Half/Full) Set of weaving yarns in the shop right before I left this morning. Messed up the pricing, of course! I really shouldn't do such things when I'm just about to leave. Lesson learned. Maybe 😜 At least I noticed right away while I was talking to someone on the phone shortly ago. Do feel free to take a peek at the weekend because by then there'll be about 18 to 20 something sets available. Most as either two Half or one Full set (shop the two half sets available to receive the full set) but there will probably a few small sets that'll only be available as full sets 😄 I had to somehow work out a pricing system and it mostly depends on the type(s) & amounts of art yarns included. There will therefore be sets that seem comparatively low priced compared to others with less but more difficult/slow to spin art yarns 🤗
