I had been hearing about Knitsonik, Felicity Ford (Felix) for a few years. Her first book, Knitsonik Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook, is a joyful exploration of personal expressive color knitting. Like me she works with visual inspirations, but her methods and results are different. ❤️❤️❤️❤️. I thought we might be kindred spirits. So nice to know someone else was playing with colors this way. And when we met in London I felt no hesitation in inviting her to visit my dear California. 🏡🏡🏡🏡🏡🏡🏡. And we had such a fine visit that I fell waaaay behind posting photos. So here are pictures of Felix exploring Indian Rock, Mission Dolores, the Wave Organ, the Pacific Ocean, with @sonyaphilip , giving a talk at @avenueyarns , and taking a photo of my Starburst Shawl. Thank you for all the fun we had dear Felix! I am so grateful for all the people knitting has brought into my life! #berkeley #knittersmakethebestfriends #fairislefriday #knittersofinstagram
Judge’s Favorite and second place - not bad for my first ever entry in our County Fair. Shawl is Renaissance Crescent by Kieran Foley. Scroll for a close-up, and for cat approval. #fairislefriday #fairisleknitting #knittersofinstagram #knistagram #kieranfoley #alamedacountyfair

Hey, I’ve finally got a project for #fairislefriday ! Making progress on my Impossible to Resist #rhinebecksweater - yarn, designer, pins, and bag maker all tagged.
Lör- sön har vi öppet kl.12- 16 Hoppas vi ses! Så har hon @knitsonik gjort den här- "Bricken" ! Tänk att sätta ihop dessa färger ljusgul och ljuslila till detta mästerverk! Och vi ha äntligen fått en halsduksuniform här på Spinneriet. Ska bara sticka upp 35 st - en till varje företag....Happy #fairislefriday Masterpiece of @knitsonik We at the Spinning mill have finally got a uniform! I'll only knit 35pcs...Just love it! #fairislefriday #felicityford #bricken #strandedcolourworkplaybook #jumperweight #knitsonik
Happy Fair Isle Friday!! 😊 We are busy sorting through a huge pile of Aunty Mays knitwear that has been knitted up at the Shetland TFU. Now for us to get it linked, finished and out in the shop as quick as we can for you! 😀 #ninianshetland
Finally finished, a vest/slipover based on Ann Feitelson’s Whalsay Jumper from “The Art of Fair Isle Knitting”. She in turn based her design on a charity shop find that had been knitted by @hazel_tindall_ so I’m calling this Hazel’s Vest! #fairislefriday
Slowly knitting away on another Rhinebeck sweater project. Susan Crawford’s Wartime Farm Sleeveless Pullover. We’ll see if I can get this finished by October, maybe. #fairislefriday #vintageknitting #susancrawfordvintage #wartimefarmsleevelesspullover #fairislevest #fairisle #rhinebecksweater
Woo hoo. It's finished ❤❤ Tree Yoke sweater by @alyssa.margaret knitted in #jamiesonandsmith jumper weight yarn. Know to cast-on another #merriedancerstoorie for #shetlandwoolweek2018 #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #knittersofig #knittersofinstagram #knittingaddict
New fair isle hat knitting pattern has just been added to the shop! I made mine in my favourite fall colours but it's a super versatile pattern - time to get started on your fall knitted accessories! 🍃🍁 #knitting #fairislefriday #knittingpattern #handmade #etsyshop #makerlife #knitstagram #ptbomakers #electriccitymaker #fallready #handmadelife #etsy #fairisle #handmadeshop #makersgonnamake #nevernotknitting #lakesidestitchingco #knitlove #knitlife
Coming down the home stretch on the Glacier Park Cowl! Just a few rounds of chart A then a ribbed finish! Even the dog is excited! August KAL starts Thursday, 8/2 at 6:00pm!@boylandknitworks @madelinetosh @woolfolk_yarn @amy1959 #knitcowls #boylandknitworks #madelinetosh #woolfolk #fairislefriday
#fofriday time, after what seems like forever! And with a sweater that I finished forever ago, too. At the end of last year, I got to test knit @knit.love.wool Jenn’s beautiful hybrid yoke design. I did finish it while it was still cold here, but managed to felt it while being impatient with blocking 😳 ... I’ve managed to fix it (with some very persistent use of steam and elbow grease), and finally take photos. Thanks for another gorgeous pattern, Jenn! . 🏷 Pattern: Vintersol by Jennifer Steingass. ➿ Yarn: LionBrand Superwash Merino Cashmere and Madelinetosh Vintage. . . . #knitlife #knittersofig #knittersoftheworld #knittersofinstagram #ravelry #knitlovewool #yokesweater #fairislefriday #projectsweaterchest #vintersolsweater #madelinetosh #lionbrandyarn
It looks more like a lap blanket, but I am almost done with the stranded knitting, 20 rows to go! #petrievest #susancrawford #thevintageshetlandproject #fairislefriday #fairisleknitting #strandedcolourwork #knitting #wipdowntogether
Another motif band finished - did you notice that all the darker motif bands are different? It’s keeping me in my toes. Also, starting to play yarn chicken too... #fairislefriday #fairisleknitting #vintageknit #susancrawfordvintage #strandedknitting #strandedcolorwork #vintageknitting #1930sfashion #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #knittingincornwall

Never trust me again. I promised no more photos of my #merriedancerstoorie before #shetlandwoolweek2018 But then I saw that our #lizard was such a good match, and since today is #fairislefriday , well , here you go #colourwork #knitting #strikkedilla #hat
Never mind, Georgy, ein schoener Rucken kann auch entzuecken as the Germans say 😸 This is Christmas stocking 183 of 2018. It's one week till I have lasik eye surgery 😱 I might need a few days off, no complicated patterns anyway... . . #tinychristmasstocking #catchristmasstocking #knittingwithcats #fairisle #fairislefriday #georgyclooney
Not true #fairisleknitting but trying my hand at #marlisle for #fairislefriday
Display looking good at bonhoga was along for a sneek peek today! #shetlandmade #shetlanddesigner #shetland #bonhoga @shetlandartscrafts
Så passande, sista maskan klar på #fairislefriday ! Än återstår dock lite arbete. Hoppas den får följa med till Shetland om några veckor! ... Cast off the last stitch on my Hortensia cardigan. Happy Fair Isle Friday! #stickning #knitting #shetlandyarn #shetlandwool #jamiesonsofshetland #jumperhortensia #hortensiasweater #knitforpassion
What a difference a week of knitting makes! All the colourwork on my #branchesandbudspullover is now complete. @maddermade @makingzine I’ll admit to being a little sad about this as I loved this part of the project. It was the perfect choice for a first colourwork garment since there are no long floats to catch. Now there is just an ocean of stockinette. I’m about halfway down towards the bottom rib on the body, so soon I will be able to set sail to #sleeveisland too . . . #branchesandbuds #makingzine #carriebostickhoge #makingmadder #makingflora #rowanyarns #feltedtweed #strandedcolourwork #strandedknitting #fairislefriday #workinprogress #knitcouture #alwaysknitting #nevernotknitting #instaknit #knitstagram #topdownsweater
#fairislefriday Nearly finished, not 100% traditional fair Isle knitting, more stranded knitting. Pattern for my Rose matching cowl and hat will be published next week in my Ravelry store. Kit coming soon to Deramores. Uses 4ply King Cole Merino.

I always love how the same pattern is transformed by colour choice. Here are two versions of Scaddiman circular cushion cover - a great way to use up small amounts of yarn. I used the same centre in the Shwook hat pattern. #fairislefriday #Shetland #knitting #knittersofinstagram #fairisle #fairisleknitting #madebyme #scaddiman #shwook #shetlandwoolweek
Friday Burra Bear FOR SALE Gunni o’ Gamligrind made from one of @jamiesonsofshetland beautiful Fair Isle jumpers #burrabears
Oh the holidays seem such a long time ago now and school has only been back a week. I had quite a bit of quality verandah time knitting and sewing whilst children were happy playing or riding bikes. #fairislefriday #fairisle #fairisleknitting #knittersofinstagram #knitting #knit #knitlovewool #tarndieyarn #tarndie #polwarthyarn #australianwool #createmakeshare #abmcrafty #handmade #knittersgonnaknit #fairislescarf #lilibetstanley
Happy Fair Isle Friday everyone! Well this pattern is right up there as one of my all time favourite creations! The client brief was to create a cardigan to match 5 different rompers in an assortment of colours...and the result is just perfect, even though I say so myself!😁#toddlerlove #etsyuk #fairislefriday #romper #toddlerstyle #handmadekids #handknitted #uniquecreations

A Happy Fair Isle Friday to all. This incredible image capturing Shetland and Fair Isle knitting, is part of a collection of 1970’s photographs taken by Chris Morphet. Image from @shetlandwooladventures #fairislefriday #fairisleknitting #knittersofinstagram #knitting #vintageknits #vintagephoto
I bought this beautiful blue yoked jumper on eBay a couple of years ago...sadly it looks like it’s been put through a hot wash so it’s badly felted and the sleeves stop at mid forearm. I studied the star pattern and charted it out with the help of one of the Norwegian star patterns in A Shetlander’s Fair Isle Graphbook, so I’m going to knit myself a new one. The colours aren’t perfectly matched but they’re not bad, it’s a little but like a time machine seeing the pattern as it would have looked when the jumper was new and not reduced to boiled wool. #fairislefriday #thewoolbrokers #shetlandwooladventures
Cables and colourwork (!) @mariewallinknits design, of course - this is the Skye jumper from North Sea: Collection 8
So my mom asked me to make a sweater for her dog Tess, and I obliged. I added some fairisle design to it and I think it fits her well! It will be her fishing sweater when they're out on the boat 🤣 . . . . #fairislefriday #fairisle #strandedknitting #fairisleknitting #craftykimiknits #knitsfordogs #dogsweater #colorknitting
The blues and greens with just a hint of yellow in the star border provide a nice contrast to the reds and pinks in the other parts of the star flower tam. #knittersofinstagram #instaknit #knitting #knittingaddict #knitstagram # knitinstagram #knit #newdesign #knitdesign #fairisleknitting #fairisle #fairislefriday #newrelease #colorworkknitting #fairisleknit #colorwork #colourwork #kunstwerkdesigns #indiedesigner #knithat #knitthats #knittam

Вас ожидает мнооого красивых фото этой лопапейсы, они все такие классные что не могу выбрать одну-две) .

Ну что же, во всей красе ❤️ . Я прям ну очень довольна результатом, и уже завтра вам покажу как она сидит на мне! . Удивительная вещь, но с каждым связанным свитером чувствую как совершенствую свою технику, и сейчас мне прям уже хочется делиться этой информацией! . И вот у меня вопрос : есть ли смысл делать курс по вязанию лопапейсы ? Так, что-бы каждый мог рассчитать на свой размер и составить свою схему? Будет ли это актуально или и так все ясно, и ну его? . . . . #so_pretty_lopapeysa #softdonegaltweed #fairisle #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #knittedsweater #lopapeysa #knitwear #nordicstyle #icelandicsweater #scandinavianstyle #лопапейса #жаккард #регланснизу #круглаякокетка #yoke #roundyoke
Я не пропала, но мы с моря практически сразу переехали с детьми к бабушке в Ковель, а здешний ритм жизни меня поглотил своей неспешностью. . Я вот все вспоминаю Комаровского который говорит что ребёнку пользы от деревни в разы больше нежели от курортов☝️ . Каждый год на море у меня с детьми одна и та же картина - старшие с соплями или легким кашлем, а мелкий ровно на день с температурой 🤦🏻‍♀️ . Зато как мы перебираемся на родину мужа все налаживается! Дети ходят практически в трусах, чумазые ( настолько что каждый день отмываем ) , упиваются козьим молоком и практически весь день тусят на улице! . Вот скажите мне, у всех так? Или все-таки вы чувствуете от моря эффект оздоровления??
Pattern: Lerwick by @mariewallinknits #fairisleclub3 Wool: @jamiesonsofshetland Shetland Spindrift. I really enjoyed this knit! I kept to about 80-90% of the original colours - Marie Wallin created this beautiful palette but I’m glad I changed the stars and a couple of other elements to suit me! I ended up with 9 steeks- while I could have knit a couple of the sections flat I’d much rather knit fair isle in the round. ❤️ #knitstagram #fairislefriday #fairisleknitting #imadethis
