Oh my gosh this bird - ahem, I mean yarn! If you’ve been waiting for indigo, there’s a sprinkle of DK weight skeins in the shop and they have lovely variations. I will steal for myself if I have to!!
Ich bin ja bekennende Slow-Strickerin, in der vergangenen Woche war’s dann aber ganz slow. Daumen beim Laube-Renovieren verletzt, Stricknadelhalten schwierig. Jetzt aber geht’s weiter, damit mein Pullunder zum Herbst fertig ist 😉 • • • Slow knitting... last week I couldn’t knit a single row because I’d hurt my thumb. So happy that I can continue knitting my sweater vest now. #lavieestpoésie @petitsouriredesign #strickenmachtglücklich #knittersofinstagram #slowknitting #sandnesgarn #wollenberlin #easypullover #diy #diyblogger_de #handmadewithlove #makeyourownclothes #knitting #breien #breienisleuk #wollliebe #enjoythelittlethings #hejhansediy
New project on my needles and it's sooo goood 🌞 . #arborealsweater with @midwinteryarns 💕 I'm in love with this super squishy, soft yarn and the easy memorisable pattern makes for a very meditative knit. . Probably slightly shooting myself in the foot as I've decided to make a steeked cardi version 😂 (never steeked anything before 🙈) and had to frog twice already but I think I've got it now. Third time lucky 🐸 . . . . . . . #fairislefriday #knittstagram #knittinglove #knittingaddict #knitlove #slowknitting #transformyouryarn #instaknits #knittersofig #knittersoftheworld #knittersgonnaknit #lovescotland #lovelifeoutside #flatlaylove
Finally cast on the #winterbreathwrap by @thewoolclub after admiring it forever. Using this beautiful and hard-to-capture yarn from @frida_fuchs_yarns and yes I'm alternating 3 skeins at once. There will be no pooling on my watch! Even though I must say, these skeins seem extremely uniform. #weekendplans #knitting #knit #yarn #wip #handmade #slowknitting #knittersofinstagram
Sewing up new orders today...open Windows...Sunshine, blue sky, a lane full of dafodill's...I'm thinking of new beginnings and upportunities, and I Thank God for creativity. How therapeutic it is to create.....it simply is soulfood. I'm so thankful for being able to create. I hope that you are well. Talk to you soon... xo, Kathrin. . . . . #makersgonnamake #handknit #handmadewardrobe #slowknitting #inspirational_knitting #knitting #knit #knittersoftheworld #knittersofinstagram #inspiremyinstagram #wool #strikk #strikking #strikkedilla #ullergull #hygge #norwegian #ull
Not sure I’ve ever really talked about my packaging- I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. So here we go. I use recycled tissue paper to wrap my skeins- the colour changes every so often. This gets secured with washi tape. Washi tape is often reuseable and is also biodegradable. This is wrapped up in baking parchment and stuck with a sticker. You could definitely reuse the baking parchment and sticker 🙃 This is secured with jute string and popped in a clear compostable mailing bag (that’s right, compostable!!!). Put it in your compost heap or the ground and it will compost between 6-24 months. There’s probably things I could do differently- like change the baking parchment to a different type of paper- maybe brown paper or something like that. Any ideas for improvement? Hit me up in the comments! . . . . . #woollymammothfibreco #modernmaker #theartofgathering #slowknitting #plantdyeing #naturaldyeing #strikk #inspiredbynature #egostrikk #slowstitches #strikkedilla #rusticgamestrong #nonsuperwashyarn #nonylonyarn #britishwool #plantefarvning #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #onmytable #tablesituation #howihue #colorsplash #knitting_inspiration #knittersofinstagram #allthingsbotanical #indiedyersofinstagram #botanicalpickmeup #indiedyer #naturaldyersofinstagram #minimalwaste @preview.app
There’s been plenty of knitting going on in the past week for the #breezemakingstorieskal with both new projects being cast on and other growing! Seeing all the progress being made has us itching to cast on our own projects, but for now we’ve been enjoying taking part in the chatter threads over on Ravelry - discussing things from knitting with linen, to sock construction to mindfulness in our knitting and making. If you’re planning on casting on a project from the collection do make sure to pop over there and join us!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Also, if you’d like a chance to win a copy of BREEZE, make sure to keep an eye on this hashtag #breezemakingstorieskal as our ambassadors have begun sharing their giveaway copies with the knitting community!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Picture by @yarnflakes who blew us away with her excellent color choice for the Joran Top!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #makingstories #summerknitting #knittersofinstagram #slowliving #slowknitting #knittinglove #linenyarn #linomuka

Excitement is building for @woollinndublin 😱😱 Can’t believe it’s TOMORROW!!! My stock will be on @thisisknit stand, and I will be hanging about a bit there as well as roaming the stands with all the beautiful produce! ♥️ Very excited to see what’s on offer. ⠀⠀ For all you who can’t make it to Woollinn I’ll be having a shop update this Tuesday 29th 7pm BST with lots of Mini’s, bundle dyeing and of course shawl kits in my new base BFL/ Gotland 😱😱😍🐑 ⠀⠀ Are you going to @woollinndublin ? If so what days? I’d love to see you there!! Come say hello! I’m thinking I need to show a photo of my face so you can all find me 🤦‍♀️😬 . . . . . ⠀⠀ #woollymammothfibreco #modernmaker #theartofgathering #slowknitting #plantdyeing #naturaldyeing #strikk #inspiredbynature #egostrikk #slowstitches #strikkedilla #rusticgamestrong #nonsuperwashyarn #nonylonyarn #britishwool #plantefarvning #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #woollinndublin #tablesituation #howihue #colorsplash #knitting_inspiration #knittersofinstagram #allthingsbotanical #yarnologist #botanicalpickmeup #indiedyer #naturaldyersofinstagram #springyarn
My #tegna by @boylandknitworks #caitlinhunter in my Falkland Merino 2ply yarn in fingering weight ♥️ • I’m hoping to finish this in two skeins, and I keep seeing lovely photos of knits that I’d like to start next. I also managed round the heel of my sock last night pretty quickly (while watching Suits) and I’m onto the gusset part now ♥️ ⠀⠀ Random question: Anyone got any thoughts on #Rhinebeck ? How did you find going as a visitor? Would love to go sometime. I’ll probably hunt round for a few podcasts that describe what it’s like! . . . . . #capturemycraft #myhandsmaking #woollymammothfibreco #modernmaker #theartofgathering #slowknitting #plantdyeing #naturaldyeing #naturaldyer #inspiredbynature #artisanat #slowstitches #simplenaturefinds #boylandknitworks #rusticgamestrong #nonsuperwashyarn #nonylonyarn #britishwool #breedyarn #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #onmytable #tablesituation #howihue #knitting_inspiration #knittersofinstagram #indigodyeing @preview.app
Hooray for nettles!!! 🌿 I’m starting a late afternoon dyebath using stinging nettles freshly harvested from the field behind our town vegetable garden plot. I’ll simmer it for awhile this evening, then let it steep overnight before straining and adding my fibres tomorrow. What’s going in? Two silk scarves, two skeins of mohair-wool yarn and a square of wool cloth. Last year when I dyed with nettles it was from plants harvested in summer and the colour was a rich green-brown. @sugarhouseworkshop posted a lovely, lighter green that she got on cloth recently and I’m hoping to achieve something closer to that, as this time I’m using new Spring growth. 💚 See that blue sky reflecting on the water? Wish you could hear the windchimes that hang nearby, too. It’s peaceful on the deck (newly painted this past holiday weekend, in the colourway “champignon sauvage” - a fitting backdrop for wild harvesting dye adventures 😊 ) I’m staying on the deck for as long as I can, because just inside the door it’s a different scene. There’s the sound of the giant fan-dehumidifier humming in the basement because of the great plumbing disaster/adventure that has entered our lives in the last 24 hours, and there’s the medication on the counter that we just got prescribed for my son’s eye infection at the children’s hospital this afternoon. Sigh. This was going to be field trip day for my daughter and me, a journey to Cantley, QC, to help with the shearing at Rock’s End Farm (where beautiful Icelandic sheep dwell). But that’s ok, life tweaks your plans a bit sometimes 😝 At least both boy and basement are healing, and the garden’s growing and the sun is warm, and the nettles are losing their sting... #rocksendfarm #icelandicwool #canadiansheep #stingingnettle #naturaldye #naturaldyersofinstagram #canadiandyer #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowknitting
Medium Project Bags fit all your 2 skein projects and your pattern. Who wants their shawl pattern not with their project? Keep it all together. A place for everything and everything in its place. How much do you love this lining?! It’s a favorite!
The reality is that I’ve not felt like knitting for almost two months (which is VERY abnormal for me). But this #hanamishawl pattern by @yumirumiknits has me fired up and moving along quite nicely. There is still one kit left in the shop available - click the link in bio! 👆 . Swipe for nerd detail on second photo 👽
👀 sneak preview of some exclusive colorways that will be available in limited quantities for the shop update this Sunday (7pm CST) 🙌🏻 in no particular order because I think it’s fun when you all guess: Bellatrix, Exploding Bonbons, Pensieve, Wizards Chess, Skeeter, The Burrow, Dolores, Hedwig, Weasley, The Car 🚙 whose excited!?! 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️
Slow and steady wins the race as I make my way through this section. I love this yarn from my friend, Ramona @westerwaelder_wollschmiede ! Many yarn overs and much counting to keep on track, as well as lifelines. I don't live dangerously, I use lifelines! I don't like having to frog an entire section due to what might be a simple error, but that causes devastating results in the section. Here's to lifelines, a slow knitter's best friend! 👏🏼👏🏼 👏🏼 #kraziknitzdesigns #knitweardesigner #knittingpattern #knittingpatterndesign #knitdesign #knitdesigner #knittingdesign #slowknitter #slowknitting #slowfashion #lifelines #knittinglifeline #knittersbestfriend #westerwaelderwollschmiede #indiedyer #indieyarndyer #currentproject #knittingismyyoga #knittedstole
Going to try and make more of this new colour today, hopefully my recipe works again! • Only really one day to go to @woollinndublin 🙌 Who’s excited?!! I can’t wait! Have you got a special project on your needles for it? I’m working on my #tegna and I’ve passed the lace section so I’m just on stockinette stitch now 😊 . . . . . #woollymammothfibreco #modernmaker #theartofgathering #slowknitting #plantdyeing #naturaldyeing #strikk #inspiredbynature #egostrikk #slowstitches #strikkedilla #rusticgamestrong #nonsuperwashyarn #nonylonyarn #britishwool #plantefarvning #woollinndublin #makersmovement #onmytable #tablesituation #colorsplash #knitting_inspiration #knittersofinstagram #allthingsbotanical #yarnologist #botanicalpickmeup #indiedyer #naturaldyersofinstagram #springyarn
Knitting + @crimejunkiepodcast = my happy place 😌
Think you can guess what might be on the horizon with just this image??
2018 make nine progress 👌🏻 This knit, The Tegna Sweater, has been on my to knit list all year! I originally cast it on back in March! But after ripping it out twice and figuring out how to not twist my stitches, I’m finally 10 rows in and not starting over! I’m a little worried about the fit, but if it ends up being a little big baggy then I’m fine with that 🤷🏻‍♀️ baggy clothes are still in right?

Acabo de abrir el paquete de @bellotaknits para tejer el #kalchinquilho y estoy 😍😍😍 La #retrosariamungo de @rosapomar me ha sorprendido, esta hecha de lana y algodón reciclado y tiene una textura muy guay. Y el color mola taaaanto Y me ha encantado el detalle de la etiqueta: knit better, wear longer, waiste less 👍 . #eskuzeginda #maiaknit #bellotaknits #jerseychinquilho #basqueknitters #knittersofinstagram #knittersofbilbao #slowknitting #tejermola #tejer #tejeresmisuperpoder #tejereselnuevoyoga #tejemosysomosmodernos #tejequeteje #tejeresmipasión #tejeresdeguapas #tejidoamano #yarnlover #yarnaddict #yarnporn #yarnstagram #yarnaholic #instayarn

These wee 20g minis are the biz!!! So cute. Dyed with orange peel, camellia (from the garden) and a lac exhaust bath. Aren’t they cute? • They’ll be in the next update along with some avocado dyed minis and some camellia (from the garden, bluebell (from the garden) and lac exhaust dyed minis. That’s Tues 29th May 7pm BST ➰🐑🐝🌿 • I was working away this morning (with some help) to collect the plant material for the Hebridean Club with @uistwool 😊🐑 ♥️🌿 . . . . . #woollymammothfibreco #modernmaker #theartofgathering #slowknitting #plantdyeing #naturaldyeing #strikk #inspiredbynature #egostrikk #slowstitches #strikkedilla #rusticgamestrong #nonsuperwashyarn #nonylonyarn #britishwool #plantefarvning #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #onmytable #tablesituation #howihue #colorsplash #knitting_inspiration #knittersofinstagram #allthingsbotanical #yarnologist #botanicalpickmeup #indiedyer #naturaldyersofinstagram #springyarn @preview.app
So, it’s happening! My no-nylon, UK sourced and spun, non-superwash British breed BFL/ Cheviot 100% wool sock yarn is going into production in a few days! 😱♥️ ⠀⠀ Super exciting! I’m currently on the heel of my sample. I haven’t ventured out to try a different pattern, I’m using the first ever sock pattern I tried @kingcoleltd as I just wanted something easy I could knit without looking at the pattern all the time. It will be interesting to see how the wear is on these- I have the feeling it will be good. The yarn is spun more tightly than normal, so it should make a great candidate for socks or any other garment that needs to be hard wearing. The people at @laxtonsyarns are extremely knowledgable- and have been so helpful throughout the exploratory process. ➰🐑 ⠀⠀ Bag by @hlh.designs 😊🐝 . . . . . #nonylonsockyarn #britishsockyarn #capturemycraft #myhandsmaking #woollymammothfibreco #modernmaker #theartofgathering #slowknitting #plantdyeing #naturaldyeing #naturaldyer #inspiredbynature #artisanat #slowstitches #simplenaturefinds #hlhdesigns #rusticgamestrong #nonsuperwashyarn #nonylonyarn #britishwool #breedyarn #nonsuperwashsockyarn #makersmovement #onmytable #tablesituation #britishsockyarn #colorsplash #knitting_inspiration #knittersofinstagram #lovelocalwool @preview.app
#NotABoomerang Frogging a project in real time using my yarn winder #bestpresentever I’ve been reading Slow Knitting by Hannah Theisen and had the courage to frog this because I knew the yarn wasn’t doing the pattern justice. I think it would look better in something with little stripes; Breathing Space by Veera Välimäki, perhaps? ——- Also found the courage/empowerment/permission to destash yarn. Swipe for those looking for more loving homes. ——- #knittersofinstagram #slowknitting #makersgonnamake
You know you’re making good progress when your ball of yarn is getting smaller and it’s time to extend your cord! • • •

More knitting pics (selfie-ish with my 💀💩L, plus car wash knitting), and cruising tunes on the drive home (my favorite @lanadelrey song EVER). It was an eventful solo morning out, and now I'm happy at home with my little Family. 😍😍 #rad #knicromaniac #morningout #knittersofinstagram #knit #knitknitknit #knittinginpublic #knitstagram #getyourkniton #knitlikeyoumeanit #knitter #slowknitting #carwashknitting #carknitting #WIP #music #lanadelrey #chillzone
Summertime is my season for dreaming. Even though the work doesn’t slow down in knitting’s”off-season”, I strive to find time between work hours to rediscover and pair up little stash plans. I’ve had this lovely wool from my first Rhinebeck for awhile, and it hasn’t told me what it wants to become yet. These newly arrived, cow horn buttons are a gift from @handspunhope that begged to be paired with this yarn. Sometimes, the project crafts itself over time, with the notions and structures and plans almost outlining themselves before our fingers can get around to the knitting.

Whew. I am not ready for Monday. But, once I get going I’ll be okay. Today we’ll continue making the 100 cat mats for a local no-kill cat rescue. We hope to have this donation finished up this week to deliver soon! In the meantime, I’m onto the sleeves on my Timber cardigan (I think that happened Friday night?). This is the cardigan in our Large Project Bag and it still fits! We have some great prints in Large Bags in the shop. I did sneak in a bit of practice color work this weekend because it’s been in my mind lately (swipe to see my practice piece). Have you done color work?
A little lunchtime knitting with dear friend @1knuttyknitter in town for her daughter's wedding. Working with my lovely yarn from @westerwaelder_wollschmiede and it's coming along nicely. Not fast, but still coming along! * * #kraziknitzdesigns #knitweardesigner #knitdesigner #knittingdesigner #indieknitdesigner #knittingpattern #slowknitter #slowknitting
And off we go with the #colourwork , I love working charts, it is just yum. I have only the rim of one sleeve to do on my #weekendersweater , I have started a new project to ease the pain of completing that one. It will always be the sweater I knit on my campingtrip in may 2018. Outdoors all day with my boys, kids knitting, cold morning snuggling in our tent. It will remind me of that when I wear it. So #sipila , what will you bring me? #slowknitting #igknitters #onmyneedles #handmadeclothes #memade #followtheprocess #wip #enjoythewool #inthemoment #hellomyboy

Sweet sunday to you! . . Yyyyyyeeeeesss! Hubbys sweater is finished. (His Christmas gift, last year, from me🙈😂) I had so much struggle, making this. It ended happy, after hard work. Whoop-whoop! I'm so shameless proud of this one! 😇💪🏻🙌🏻 He is often cold in the evenings, this sweater will be used a lot. He loves it.
