Day 28 the #yarnlovechallenge is Favorite Thing I've Made. Aside from my kids (of course 😜) I have to say that I'm totally smitten with this little dress, which I'll be releasing in just a few days 😱. It's especially crazy cute with a baby in it 😍so if any of my testers are willing I'll show you some serious adorableness in the days to come. Stay tuned... #knitting #knittersofinstagram #babyknits #barnestrikk #frogginette
Day 27 of the #yarnlovechallenge is Blocking. Especially when knitting shawls or anything with some lace in it, blocking is absolutely magical. What comes off the needles a crumpled mess actually transforms into a gorgeous, crisp, fabric. It makes me think of a beautiful butterfly emerging from a chrysalis. 🐛🦋Fittingly, this lovely design was named Nymphalidae by its talented designer, Melinda VerMeer. #nymphalidaeshawl #knitlove #knitting #tricot #strikk #stricken #knittersofinstagram
Day 26 of the #yarnlovechallenge is Latest Stash. The Plucky Knitter yarn on the left is Traveler Sock in modern vintage and the speckled yarn on the right is La Bien Aimee. I got both during my trip to Paris in the fall and haven't yet decided what I'll do with either... thoughts? I only have 1 skein of each. Since that Paris trip all I bought was some Malabrigo Worsted in Pink Frost, which I needed to make a new Entrechat sample - the original was lost when I sent it to a publisher a couple years ago 😳😭#bouquetofyarn #yarnlove #yarn #yarnporn #yarnstash #malabrigo #labienaimee #pluckyknitter
Day 24 of the #yarnlovechallenge is Favorite Tip. I have 2 organization-oriented tips: 1- these IKEA bins are great for yarn storage. I love that you can stack them on some shelves and see your stash at a glance without having to rummage through large containers and plastic bags. 2- kiddie barrettes are great to keep your ball of yarns from unraveling all over the place. Just be careful not to "stab" your yarn with them. ( I first saw this tip in Pinterest and think it's great) What about you, do you have any knitting-related tips you'd like to share?
Day 22 of the#yarnlovechallenge is Currently Wearing. It is so rainy and awful outside that I needed something to cut through all the grey. 🌫🌧🌫 Enter my Em Dash cardigan, which is the loveliest shade of aqua and as soft as can be. 🤗#emdashcardigan #melliferayarns #slowfashion #makersofinstagram #handmade #handknit #knitlove #knitting #knittersofinstagram
