A relaxing steam bath for my frogged yarn before it’s ready to be re-knit.

(I could use a relaxing steam bath too, right about now.)

Onwards!

Cardigan update: I love it and I’ll frog it! 🫣

I totally love the colors and texture and the simple construction, but…

My gauge swatch was a lying liar that lies, it turned out smaller (which I don’t mind so much), the armhole is too tight (because of less ease in the body, the armhole would need to be wider) and the pockets ridiculously small.

There’s nothing to do but to take a deep breath, be brave, take it all apart, and start from scratch. 

And while it hurts a little, I love that you can do that with knitting. It’s possibly the thing I love most about it. 🩷

Adding an attached Brioche border to the opening of my cardigan WIP.

What do you think?

Definite plus of a top-down construction: You get to try it on as you go! 😻

The first try on of my latest design in progress, the Ginny cardigan was a success. I only just made past the armholes, but so far so good! 😅

I’ve been working on this design ever since the Ginny cowls came out, but I just recently found the perfect construction method for it.

I absolutely love the color combo of @labienaimee’s Corrie.

This one’s going to fly off my needles, it’s so much fun to knit! 🎉

My grandma would have celebrated her 100th birthday today! 🎂🎉🩷

Sadly, she passed away after a long fight with thyroid cancer when I was very young, and I didn’t get to spend nearly enough time with her. There has not been a day since she hasn’t been with me in spirit, especially when I putter around the garden, sew, knit, or have a glass of wine.

I get my love for crafting from her, and I’m sure she would be incredibly happy and proud to know I’ve made it into a profession. She would also be completely mystified by the whole concept of the interwebs. 

Alles Gute, Oma! 😘

🧶 I’m wearing my Winter Grid sweater with the scoop neck and double-layer neckband in this photo.
Join Kathi of @wollhabitat and me as we’re reminiscing about the first year of #KnitPlanetA - the climate change shawl!

We’re sharing what we learned of the first year of the project, what’s new for 2024 and how you can join in.
Oh Brioche, I’ve missed you! 🥰

This project has been on my needles forever, and patiently waiting for me to pick up the needles again and finish it. 

Now’s the time!
Can’t wait to finish this shrug!

Crew, Scoop, Turle or Cowl - I may need one of each!? ☺️

The Winter Grid sweater offers many possibilities! 

You can combine any of the 7 circumferences, 7 lengths and neckline options to create your custom fit.
There are two neckline sizes, a narrow crew and wider scoop, each can be finished with a single- or double-layer neckband, the crew neckline can be extended into a turtleneck, and the scoop neckline into a cowl neck.

Winter Grid is knit sideways from the center out in a fun modular and seamless construction with Aran weight yarn (or Worsted and fluffy Lace held together).

➡️ The knitting pattern for Winter Grid is available on Ravelry and Payhip!

The construction of this sweater is so clever, loved knitting it! I thought it would turn out a bit too big but, after blocking, it fits beautifully 😍

Sunday swatching! Treating myself to starting something new, even though I have a couple other projects in the works. I've been eyeing Conflux by Susanne Sommer and I'm getting a little bit closer to making my own. Should I finish something I'm in the middle of knitting or work on this?

Ich liebe ja spannende Konstruktionen......so wie hier beim Gridlines nach einer Anleitung von sosuknits . Der Pulli wird an der vorderen Mitte begonnen und seitwärts gestrickt und gefällt mir super gut. Ich verarbeite die Terra von symfonieyarns in der Farbe Riverbank, ein wunderbares weiches Merino Sockengarn, gekauft bei der lieben Marion creativemr_handarbeit
