Ending a long and stressful week with some knitting and one of my favourite beers on #fairislefriday - thanks #tempestbrewingco 👐
Thank you for the brilliant Fair Isle and steeking class today @donnasmithdesigns !

Since it’s #fairislefriday I thought I’d post my newest design. It’s the Ninian Poncho and Mini Ninian. I’m working on sizing them from 6 mos. to large adult. This design was directly inspired by my trip to Shetland last summer. I’m so grateful to all of the wonderful knitters and fiber artists I met on that trip! Especially @donnasmithdesigns and @shetland_textile_museum The patterns will be available probably later this Summer. #fairisleknitting #fairisleknit #fairisle #yarnfun #sweetshoppatterns #knittersofinstagram #yarnaddict
I’ve had an amazing time away on holiday in Italy with so much amazing inspiration along the way! I particularly loved all the patterns I spotted! I really enjoy creating patterns from repeating simplified shapes, I love the way the pattern forms as the shape repeats along the stitches and rows! 😀 #drummiebee #fairislefriday #italy
We’ve just been to visit @susancrawfordvintage on her delightful farm in Lancashire. I’m so proud that Susan’s book, the Vintage Shetland Project sits on our shelves. This amazing woman’s journey to where she is today deserves so much respect. If you haven’t already picked up a copy, we have them in-store and online. #thevintageshetlandproject #susancrawfordvintage #fairislefriday
Made a start on my #threipmuirsweater by #Ysolda . I like the little pussy cat heads. Hoping to have this finished in time for my @shetlandwooladventures trip in June.....#watchthisspace #fairislefriday
HAPPY FAIR ISLE FRIDAY 😊 it's been another lovely day in Shetland, we have seen lots of lovely customers today. But think we are still getting over yesterday! We had two cruise ships in 😊 so lots of visitors! The photo today was taken on location and we have replaced the Shetland coat of arms with a lovely Aunty May's jumper in our Raspberry colour way..... #fairislefriday #joannahunterknitwear

My babyblanket won! Yarn from @thewoolbrokers. Min babyfilt vann. Garn från Jamieson&Smith. #eval8s #nckal #fairislefriday #fairisleknitting #shetlandyarn #jamiesonandsmith
Stripey mail today! #pompommag arrived! Hooray! Very dangerous to open with all the current knitting on my needles... A fit of castonitis in the house... Here are only two of the many...#stripes #fairislefriday #petrievest #stockbridgecardigan #uistwool
Another vintage knit from the Cedar Chest. Paton's wool, a bit thicker than DK. If I remember rightly the wool came from the Paton's factory in Tasmania. (My design.) #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #knittersofaustralia
This just might be my new favorite sweater. And I’m absolutely in love with @brooklyntweed Ranch 101. Love the color, love the dreamy softness (which is super important for summer sweaters that always get worn over a t- shirt ) -but i am pretty sure I’m going to be wearing this year round. Bergitte is cropped (with 3/4 length sleeves) but I am considering putting in additional measurements for optional full-length sleeves and body. What do you think? Would that be helpful? Pattern coming soon. All I need is photography. 📷 📷 📷 📷 📷 #scandiwork #bergittecardi #btranch01 #brooklyntweedranch01 #btinthewild #summersweater #fairislefriday #strikkelykke #hyggestrik #yokecardigan #handknit #steek #knittersofinstagram #knittersoftheworld #breieniship #strikkingergøy #kofte

Something is wrong with the Christmas stocking in the middle. Who sees it? Setting myself up for criticism here 😁 . . #findthemistake #christmascountdown #christmasstockings #ChristmasKnits #christmas2018 #knitting #polarbear #fairislefriday #ChristmasSpirit
Very few things in life are permanent and I think that can definitely apply to the pom poms on your hats! Here's the Sawley hat I first posted a couple of weeks ago, this time with an alpaca pom pom. . . I generally make my pom poms removable so I can change from yarn or faux fur or alpaca or no pom pom at all, depending on my mood. Do you change out the pom poms on your hats? . . #fairislefriday #pompomhats #pompomhat #alpacapompom #fairisleknitting #toastyvolume2 #knittingkits #handmadegiftsarethebest #sawleyhat #highfibreshopmakes #knittersofig #instaknit #hatknitting #strandedknitting #strikke #lovetoknit #highfibreshop #thehandmadeparade #handknithats #baaramewepip #britishwool
{Fair Isle Friday Inspiration} @theknittingpurl won a first class ribbon for her #giantlatvianmittensweater and I’m sure you can see why! 💙 Such craftsmanship and attention to detail. I am impressed and inspired by her work. Check out her page for the yarn and pattern details and more images of this amazing cardigan. Find clasps like these for your projects at wormewoole.com.
#fairislefriday Another beautiful sunny ☀️ day here. Hopefully I won’t need my 'Hunkering' hat for a long time. Swipe to see my hat pictured with my 'Hunkering' scarf. I knitted both of these in Winter 2017. Wishing you a Happy Friday! 💐 Patterns are Scalloway Tam and Fetlar scarf by @mariewallinknits and yarn is Spindrift by @jamiesonsofshetland. #knittersofinstagram #colorwork #colourwork #knitting #fairisleknitting #flowersfrommygarden #magnolia #rhododendron #fern #emmabridgewatermug #cottagegarden #countrygarden #mygardentoday #scallowaytam #fetlarscarf #mariewallin #mariewallindesign #jamiesonsofshetland #spindrift
Took a while to manage to get the pictures but these were fun to take. Good project too. Maths from @susancrawfordvintage 's landgirl vest, motifs from @mjmucklestone , yarn is from @virtual_yarns. She loves it and was a cute land girl at her school ww2 living museum. I refuse to point out any flaws anymore, #fairislefriday is for showing off and being proud of our work. I made this and there is nothing else quite like it. The girl is mostly her own work nowadays.
Fairisle Friday. Good Morning everyone, it’s going to be a beautiful day here in the UK. Fairisle mitten in very unusual colour combination for me .. AND THERE’S A MISTAKE IN RIBBING ... which kept me up last night so I’ll have to rip back it bothers me too much ! #knittersofinstagram #fairislemittens #fairislefriday #handknits #jamiesonspindrift #colours #mistakesweremade
Happy Fair Isle Friday! Pattern @susancrawfordvintage Yarn @thewoolbrokers #fairislefriday

This just arrived in the post today all the way from Scotland . The West Highland Way by Kate Davies @katedaviesdesigns Having a lovely afternoon reading about this famous walk, the inspiration for Kate’s latest designs. As a regular visitor to Scotland, I’m in my element with this publication. Knit ❤️Read ❤️Walk❤️ #knitting #katedavies #thewesthighlandway #scotland #fairislefriday #knittersofinstagram
Another sign of changing seasons is this fair isle duo that performed very well during chilly wintry weeks. #fairislefriday
Remodelled my jumper and am really happy with the result. Chopped off 20cm and then knitted on an 8cm band. Much better #changeisaction #remodelling #upgrade #knitting #grannieskills #growthmindset #knittersofinstagram #igknitters #knitstagram #fairislefriday #fairisle #sohappy
I decided to restart after all, which is good because I'm much happier with these colours 😊 . It reminds me of the yellow and purple wild flowers I saw on a walk yesterday. I don't have the right shade of purple yarn, but this blue does have a violet tinge when placed against the yellow. . Pattern is 'Vanten blad' by @docksjo Lovely golden yarn is Sul merino by @dyedbyalfinete #knittersofig #instaknit #imadethis #handknitting #handmadewardrobe #handmade #sticka #strikk #stricken #stickning #igknitters #knittersofinstagram #knittersofinsta #knittersoftheworld #knittingaddict #handknittedsweater #fairislefriday #colorwork #strandedknitting #onmyneedles #neulonta #vantenblad #veronikamittens #yellowlove #yellowforever #yellowandpurple #purpleandyellow

Student are knitting this morning; this afternoon they’ll be dyeing their own yarn for colorwork 🎉🎊.

I've been knitting mostly smaller Christmas stockings in the last few days. The angel Christmas stocking is the largest I've made this week. But I'm only 17 behind now in my challenge... . #ChristmasStocking #knitting #angel #reindeer #fairislefriday #redchristmas #etsy #christmascountdown #project365
Well, it turns out that cutting up steeks is reeeeally fun. And also more than a little panic-inducing. Next up: knotting and weaving in alllll those ends. Yep. * (I am using the knotted steek technique illustrated so beautifully in @tomofholland 's online tutorial. I chose this method since the yarn is a bit slippery, being a MCN blend, and the knots seem more secure for holding the yarn in the long term than sewing...) * * #fairislefriday #knitting #instaknit #knitdesign #knittersofinstagram
Maybe not quite fair isle, but the yarn is still from @thewoolbrokers ! #puffinsweater #katedaviesdesigns #fairislefriday #knittersofinstagram
Wishing you a mega-Fairisle Friday! All these beauties from The Vintage Shetland Project are now in my case ready for tomorrow's journey to London. So now for a good night's sleep before a very early start. #fairislefriday #vintageshetlandproject #susancrawfordvintage #knitting #shetlandknitting #promoteshetland #vintageknitting
Fairisle Friday! It’s finally off the needles... only took a year 😬 I’m in project completion mode. Finally. Time for this little cap to take a soak... ❄️ I know snow in the summer... but it’ll be a great project for summer knitting and then you’ll be ready for winter walking. ❄️ #fairislefriday #fairisleknitting #inspiredbyshetland #jamiesonsofshetland #iloveshetland #knitpeace #knitterswhowalk
When it's summer but I still want to knit all the wool... #taoofknitting #fairislefriday
I’m still in love with my new Isca dress! Today I realised that the pockets are big enough that I can get 100g of yarn in each one. It has therefore become the perfect thing to wear while working in the sample for a new jumper design. #iscashirtdress #fairisle #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #strandedknitting #knitdesign #shetlandyarn #knitting #instaknit #mmm18 #memade #slowfashion #handmadewardrobe #sewcialists
I loved what @ysolda wrote yesterday about vest weather being the best. here's my latest tank, using Spindrift from @jamiesonsofshetland Shetland Supreme from @thewoolbrokers , bought at #eyf2017 . Pattern is Katie's Fair Isle from Country Weekend Knits by Madeline Weston. I was keen to make one completely traditional Fair Isle garment in traditional colours, and this is it! #knittersofinstagram #fairisle #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #shetlandwool #knitstagram #strandedknitting

Happy Fair Isle Friday! Nu återstår bara att lägga min Cockatoobrae cardigan mellan fuktiga handdukar för att den ska bli helt färdig 🌸#cockatoobrae #katedavies #fairislefriday

Fina tröjan Bressay är klar. Den har en rand fram för den ska klippas upp till en kofta. Mycket nöjd. .... Bressay is off the needles. After it dries it will be transformed into a cardigan. #knitting #fairisleknitting #jamiesonsofshetland #mariewallin #bressaysweater #mariewallinshetland #fairislefriday
Day 51 of my current #clusterheadache episode. I never had such a long one before... it's getting better, although with a lot of ups and downs. Because the downs usually weigh harder, I started to write a little diary on my pain development over the day using a pain scale from 0 (no pain) to 10 (wanna die). And this was a good idea, I can now SEE that it's improving. While I was between 5 and 10 all day long for the first 3 weeks, it's now only a 0 to 2 most of the time with some peaks. The last time I was on a 5-6 is a week ago. This afternoon is a 3-4, so I bought myself some flowers to cheer me up. And I'm knitting on my stranded cardigan, because it is #fairislefriday #fairisle #strandedknitting #kauni

It's Fair Isle Friday!! I missed it last week. This is the revisited Elizabeth of York from Starmore's Tudor Roses. I used the same yarn, and identical buttons, as those in the book. The cropped styling and close fit are really cute, but it means I have never worn this! 😒 #theraineysisters #virtual_yarns #virtualyarns #fairislefriday
When your knitting matches your Persian carpet 😜 Just realised but obviously a great choice 💫#knittersofinstagram #knitting #handmade #colourwork #yarn #merriedancerstoorie #shetlandwoolweek2018 #fairislefriday
