When I cloned myself to photograph a set of 5 Christmas stockings 😁 . . I have one more Christmas stocking to finish and ship by Thursday, then I will have all custom orders finished. Some ready to ship Christmas stockings are still available in my shop and lots of knitting patterns too. . . #knitchristmasstockings #knitting #fairislefriday #FairisleChristmasStocking #knitchristmasstockings #ravelry #HolidayStockings
Finished the colorwork section of the yoke last night! . . . . #humulussweater by @lilalu72 with @brooklyntweed #shelteryarn #yarn and #sweater class from @woll.haus (how cute is that #stitchmarker ?). And, yes, #stitchmarkers help me stay on top of and track my work. #knittersofinstagram #knitting #handmade #makersgonnamake #myfirstsweater #fairisle #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #colorwork
Exam #2 today, so here's a throw back to knitting these gorgeous #strago mitts last year! I'm looking forward to wearing them on lots of long, crisp walks just as soon as I'm done with finals... 😔

🍁fair isle knitting 🍁lost beanie R.I.P 🍁 🍁 Hi there and welcome to everyone who joined recently to follow my fiber adventures ! Love meeting new craftmates every day ! hugzzz ☺️ 🍁 This is my first post about lost handmade beanies I knitted for my kids ! Sooooo sad, isn´t it? 😔I always invest so much love, time and skill designing them, always knitting on my own, rarely using any patterns, and then they just disappear: in trams, cars, holidays, playgrounds or school trips. This one: lost during the school trip. Never came back It´s all fine until the kids are all right - I am always going to knit another one 😁😜 🍁 Yarn : Borsted Alpakka @sandnesgarn 🍁 Tell me about your lost handmade ! Heartache, right ? 🍁 #fairisle #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #lostbeanie #fairisleknittingdesign #fairislehat #fairislefridayhat #strandedknitting #strandedknit #strandedcolorwork #strandedcolorworkknitting #knitlovewool #knitsharelove #alpakkawool #sandnesgarn #børstedalpakka #makersgonnamake #nevernotknitting #knitstagram #instaknit #knittinginspiration #knittingislove #knitsforkids #stricken #strikkedilla #strikkemamma #pletenje #rucnirad #starizanati #lovewool {Werbung / Markenernennung/ unbeauftragt}
Good morning 🙂 . I started knitting this for a friend, but I'm somehow not 100% convinced. I always overthink & get doubts when it's for someone else (bet I'm not the only one). I needed a dark background to contrast with the colours, but not sure about my choice now..... Shall I carry on? . #boustabeanie #knittersofig #instaknit #imadethis #handknitting #handmadewardrobe #handmade #sticka #strikk #stricken #stickning #igknitters #knittersofinstagram #knittersofinsta #knittersoftheworld #knittingaddict #fairislefriday #colorwork #strandedknitting #onmyneedles #neulonta #colourwork #fairisle #eatsleepknit #knittingismyyoga #strikning #nevernotknitting

It has taken me the whole week to get through 8 rounds of short row shaping on my Owen's Sweater. Not because I haven't had a chance to do it, but because I keep ripping it out. 😒 Every time I have to knit short rows in-the-round, I always look up how to do it and I always try different techniques/methods. I'm still not sure what way I like best. 🤷‍♀️ Do you you have a favorite method for short rows in-the-round? I'd love to hear it! 🤓 #itsallpartoftheprocess #owenssweater #fairislefriday #fringetownbag #knitterproblems #knittersofinstagram

My girl and I have the flu. It's pretty bad. I thought I would get lots of knitting time in. That hasn't happened. I have been too weak to really do much besides take the dogs out and lie down again.

Keep an eye out for new colour ways.... #joannahunterknitwear #ninianshetland
Wow! Thank you so much.The pomegranate colourway for Constant Companion sold out in the blink of an eye and we only have a few kits left in stock for colourway two modelled here by my very own Constant Companion @mealsmilesandmore This colourway uses Olea as the main colour, a glorious, warm olive green. Alongside Tansy and Snowdrop, the yoke uses Heliotrope, a fabulous new shade of deep cyclamen which adds a wonderful depth to the motif. Olea is the shade I've been longing for, for several years and I can't wait to cast on my own cardigan in this colourway too. If you would like one of the last few of these limited edition kits you can follow the link on this post or via my profile. #susancrawfordvintage #excelanadk #constantcompanion #wool #knittingpatterns #knitting #design #fairisle #fairislefriday
Happy #fairislefriday ! Progress on my #ninilchikswoncho 🙂 I was never going to stick to 4 colours 😄It was a bit iffy at first but now the colours are coming together. Looks great to me anyway 😄 #knitting #icelandicyarn #lettlopi #poncho / #swoncho (haven't decided yet) #stashbusting
Happy Fair Isle Friday!!!! {it’s a thing...and if it’s not, it should be} Also, loving our latest batch of bouquets... these posies from @daffodilparker have Steph’s favorite thistles - a little bit of Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 in Wisco.
A scarf I made about 10 years ago, I put on this morning as it was so damp and windy. One of the things I love about woolly garments and accessories they last for years and are so warm and cosy to wear. This scarf was made flat, so knitting 1 row knit and the next purl fair isle and all. Not a traditional method but I wanted to give it a go to see what the differences were compared to knitting in the round. I found it was slower purling every second row and the stitch tension of the purl rows were slightly different from the knit but this evened out with blocking. I also just enjoy knit stitches more than purl! How about you? #fairislefriday #knitandpurl #shetlandknitter

#Repost @donnasmithdesigns ・・・ For this week's Fair Isle Friday: I taught the last class of the Fair Isle knitting evening class for this session. The course ran for ten weeks in our local Primary school and the students learned how to design and knit their own Fair Isle jumper by knitting a mini version (these are two of my samples) I really enjoyed teaching such a lovely bunch and am looking forward to the next one starting in January! #fairislefriday #fairisleknitting #knitting #knittersofinstagram #photo #photography #photograph #photobook #photobooks #photos #photoart #photolove #photographs #photooftheday #lovephotography #lovephoto #lovephotographs #instalike #instagood #pics #pic #picture #pictures #instagood

Channeling some summer feelings wearing my #voysbeachsweater knit tee while digging out on this #fairislefriday . My warm woolly base layer there is the #sagetunic by @mariewallinknits . A woman walking by commented that she felt old being all bundled up while I'm out there without a coat...the wonders of wool, I was toasty as could be. Sheep don't put on coats, and I don't want to today either. Wishing you all lots of #fairisleknitting fun today! . . . #knittersofnewfoundland #woollywarmth #knitwearisthebestwear #handknit #handknitsweater #handmade #madewithlove #knittersofinstagram #knittersofravelry #igknitters #knitlove #knitaddict #sweaterweather #strandedknitting #colorworkknitting #colourmakeseverythingbetter Edited: wooly=woolly
I've been showing you photos of my Guinevere fingerless mittens in progress. When I designed these fingerless mittens I used Rowan Fine Tweed, which was discontinued. The kits with the original yarn sold out earlier this year, so I knew I had to redo them in a different yarn. Shetland Spindrift, from @jamiesonsofshetland is my go-to yarn for colour work. I've matched the original colour way (blue flowers) as closely as possible and I've also knitted them in a second colour way (violet flowers). That does mean that I've been knitting lots of fingerless mittens! The pattern has had a major update: as well as the new yarn and colour ways, there are new charts, and it has been edited to bring it in line with my more recent self-published patterns. The pattern for Guinevere fingerless mittens is now available as a digital download from the Being Knitterly Ravelry store or as printed or in a kit from the Being Knitterly webstore.

Capillifolium (a sphagnum moss) neck warmer - first accessory in a set of three by Alice Starmore. . . . Currently my small project just completed last night. A very relaxing and satisfying knit which has given me focus when my mind was too misty to knit round Damselfly although I am slowly progressing with this too. I have started the hat with ear flaps! . . . #FairIsleFriday #virtualyarns #alicestarmore #neckwarmer #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #knittersoftheworld #accessories #knitting #fairilse #colourwork #colorwork #december #slowfashion #colours #iloveknitting #knittersofravelry #wool #handknit

Part of a jumper knitted by my mother in 1953 for my brother. It's very well worn - possibly all 4 of her children wore it. Steeks weren't used. From armhole to shoulder it was 'brak an eke', ie right side was always facing and yarn broken at the end of each row. Ends were knotted and left - no trimming and no weaving in. Neck shaped by picking stitches from the knitted fabric then excess cut away. #fairislefriday #shetland #fairisle #sweater #jumper #strikke #colourwork #wool #vintage
This picture was sent to me by my eldest son. Especially for you and especially for #fairislefriday . It's such a great feeling that the whole family appreciates my work. 💕 Isn’t it the best feeling ever when our garments are worn? 🤔👍🏻💪🏻🍀 . . . . #instaknitter #knitforpassion #knittingdesigner #stricken #breien #strikkedilla #shetlandwool #strikking #strikke #strickenisttoll #strickenmachtspaß #jamiesonsofshetland #jaquardknit #strandedknitting #instaknittersgermany #strickenmachtglücklich #strandedcolorwork #steeking #hønsestrikk #fairisleknitting

Shetland Wool Week is all about learning and sharing new skills. Here are some great photos from @janda.gooding who took a class with Fair Isle knitting enthusiast @maryhendersonknitting , who taught colourwork and steeking with @thewoolbrokers yarns. Taking the eek out of the steeking.
I have made some mistakes with this....maybe only obvious to me and the designer...nevertheless, instead of ripping it back yet again, I’ve carried on...my granddaughter won’t notice, and me...well I no longer care 😂 Now...time to relax my shoulders, unclench my jaw and get on with it!! #fairisleknitting #fairisle #knitting #learning #learningsomethingnew #colourwork #colourworkknitting #strandedknitting #fairislefriday

My second attempt. Went up a needle size, modified the neckline so it’s bigger, added steek sts too, for the entire cardigan .....and it’s looking good. I love knitting with my handspun. .. #knittingwithhandspun #slowfashion #merinowool #shetlandwool #australianknitters #fairislefriday #yokedsweater #fairisleknitting #knittersgonnaknit #knittingintheround #seamlessknit #spinnerswhoknit #alwaysknitting #handspunyarn #handspunwool #naturalcolouredwool #sheeptosweater #fleecetogarment
I hold yarns in both hands when knitting #colourwork , and my right naturally has a tighter tension than my left, but I’d rather not have one colour pop while the other recede. So, I started practicing so as to get even tension, and I’ve pretty much figured it out. However, in the leg warmer on the right, that resulted in #cascade220 fingering (green and rust) receding against #jamiesonandsmith 2-ply jumper weight (natural), which is a plumpier yarn. So, I held Cascade in my left and deliberately loosened my tension. Now the difference isn’t that noticeable anymore. The one on the needles is unblocked, while the other was steam blocked. #fairislefriday #2plyjumperweight 202 #ballstonlegwarmers #ravelry #knittedlegwarmers #fairisle #fairisleknitting #iloveknitting #operationreducethestash #knittersofinstagram #instaknit #knittingismytherapy #handknit #strandedknitting
