Favorite and classic shawlette for 2019 spring and summer. It is perfect when you have your own yarn store in your office. The colors and yarns are at my fingertips. #yarn #merino #yarndesigns #shawls #colors

Possum, merino, silk, and cashmere mean you get to wrap yourself up in luxurious, light, and toasty goodies all year round 🐑🐏 #elkaeducation
We’ve launched and it feels pretty damn good to see three years of work come to fruition. Beyond heading to the link in our bio to pick up some sweet threads, read up on our field notes—including Nathan’s launch learnings in his Q&A.
Hey, so this is my first post!🥳🥳🥳 I’m going to post my knitting related things here! (Who knows maybe I’ll get back on Etsy someday : ) Just knitted my first pair of mittens! I’ve made many fingerless gloves but these are the first with a thumb. It’s silly, but I was always worried about knitting a thumb gusset. Made with an Alpaca, Mulberry Silk, and Merino wool blend. They are incredibly soft! 🧶pattern by @tincanknits
My latest spin!
I started with mustard, then gold... then I ‘auditioned’ a few colours to add as the third ply. I had originally imagined white to make a marled, sunshiney yarn but it ended up looking more like an unhealthy candy cane. Black was too dull, green was too ‘Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi’, pink made the mustard look like baby poo. But I really like the purple! This colour combination reminds me of Salvation Jane blossoms in a field of wheat or canola (not so good for farmers but very picturesque).
This ability to experiment and tailor my yarn is one of the things I’m really loving about spinning. I have so much fun playing around with colours, and it’s so interesting how sometimes it’s the unexpected combinations that give the most pleasure!
I’m so pleased with how much more even my spinning and plying is now! This is probably technically a worsted yarn (or semi worsted because my drafting technique is not perfect), so it should be pretty durable. I’ve found that I don’t enjoy the short forward draft, it’s super repetitive in a boring way, and I know I *should* perfect the technique to get perfectly even yarn, but honestly, I would rather have imperfect or unusual yarn and enjoy the spinning process. If I want ‘perfect’ yarn I’ll buy it!

12th day of #christmas
! Can’t believe 25th of December is right around the corner & Then it’s the new year!! This year has been a great one. I truly believe God was preparing me for 2019. This year I saw my brand showcase and design collections and pieces I always knew I wanted to design back from the beginning of building Elizabeth An’Marie. My motto, our hashtag aboutagirl was to empower girls to step out and say to the world “I don’t care what you say, or what you think. I can do whatever I want”. And through all my pieces I took that on board to say “I’m making ready to wear knitwear pieces for that unique soul who doesn’t care what people say, or think! When she in any environment - if it’s work, a girls night out. Or even fashion week it self.” She was made to be the only unique one in a room x
Over on the ECY blog: @sparkles1284
and I put together a gift guide! And no, it’s not just “buy yarn”.. although that’s always good advice, of course.
