The smaller version of Frequency is still plenty large, so you can bundle up and keep comfy on a crisp fall day.

This smaller version of the Frequency Shawl is knit in 3 shades of gray of the fingering weight @gretaandthefibers Raval (400 m / 437 yds per 100g). I used the lightest and the darkest shades for the main part and the medium gray for the border.

This is such a staple shawl that goes with everything and I love that it's bold and subtle at the same time.

The measurements in detail are:
Small Version: 180 cm / 71" length and 86 cm / 34" height
Large Version: 220 cm / 86 1/2" length and 105 cm / 41 1/2" height

The shawl is available on Ravelry and Payhip (or via my website) with a 20% discount until October 30. Happy knitting!

Studio pup! 🥰

Marley is being his usual helpful self today, chilling in my little knitting studio, while his kitten sister Juli chewed off my working yarn while I was on the computer… 😏

I love a good texture change! 💖

This new sweater should be finished today, then I just have to do a thousand more things before I can share it with you! 😅
The fluff is real! 💖

I don’t mind sleeve island if it’s this pretty and soft. 

What’s your weekend project?
INKY
is knit in two-color brioche and garter stitch in a crescent shape. The center brioche design element “drips” into the garter stitch border. The spiky tips are simply made by blocking out the “drops” and can easily be changed to a straight finish.
As always, an i-cord (selvedge & bind-off) surrounds the entire shawl for a neat and finished look.

🧶 Yarn pictured is Merino Singles (fingering weight) by @labienaimee in the colorways Aimèe’s Sweater (gray speckled, 2 skeins) and Hiroko (blue/green, 1 skein).

Pattern available on Ravelry, Payhip & LoveCrafts - all via my website as well! Pattern link is in my bio.
Candy close-up!
One of the questions I get asked a lot is -what can you make with slub yarns? .
I would say you can make anything that uses a simple stitch pattern that will highlight all those beautiful little floofy slubs. A perfect example is this wonderfully warm Ewe Rock Shawl which utilizes garter and brioche stitches. I used my Floofy Base in 4 coordinating colors to create this wickedly beautiful light to dark fade

After running into the dreaded brioche-mistake having to go back stitch by stitch that i told you about in my last #sosuMKAL2021 progress post - I am pleased to show off at least a little bit of progress. ⁠
⁠
Can I just say, that normally having faced a hurdle like that I would have thrown my project in the 'naughty corner' to hibernate at least for a few months, but this knit, this knit guys is so addictive that I just couldn't wait to get back on track - and I just love the result, the texture, the stitch pattern, my colours, as it grows between my hands!⁠
⁠
The Mystery KAL is over and Susanne sosuknits has published the design in all its glory - meaning that we couldn't take our hands off a chance to revamp and redo the kits we have in store - meticulously assembled to make this gorgeous design properly shine!⁠
⁠
You'll find all the glorious Brioche + Mystery kits in the kits section of our website.⁠

Heute Abend wird noch mein 2. Anstrick vom #sosumkal2021 fertig. Es macht einfach soviel Spaß und ich befürchte, das Tochterkind erhebt Anspruch auf das Erste . 😅 Also vorbeugen. Außerdem hat Frau genug Wolle 🧶, die will verarbeitet werden .😉
