My contribution to Knit Picks Everyday Wrapsbook is a tribute to speckled dyes. Ilana Wrap gives you an opportunity to parade the wildest speckled colorways with contrasting intarsia framing the speckles on both sides. The wrap is knitted diagonally, which turns the simple change of color into a…

Expressive Shawl

Joji Locatelli's Expressive is a pretty shawl that looks like it's going to be a lot of work - and turns out to be even more. The body of the shawl is worked in twisted ribbing, with yarn over increases and decreases creating its lovely shape. It's not difficult to knit, but you have to look at…

Cold weather front from Siberia has created chaos all around Europe. I understand that when you are not used to see snow, it can make life difficult. However, here in Finland, we have enjoyed perfect winter weather: sun has been shining for two weeks, there's snow on the ground and the temperatures…

Jyväskylä KnitFestival organised its first Winter Festival on Feb 2-4, 2018. The first day of the festival wasn't easy: local traffic was on strike and there a blizzard in Jyväskylä. Not the best day for an open air market, with temperatures below -10 'C! Luckily, long distance trains were not…

I had quite ambitious plans for the Indie Design Gift-A-Long, and they turned out to be too ambitious. This cardigan took more than 5 weeks to knit, so I only finished it after the GAL was over. I'm still super happy with the cardigan - a long, open cardigan is something you can wear with…

I'm super happy with the positive response to my Tiger Flower design for Quince co, thank you so much! I have to say that I have been enjoying knitting this pattern so much, too, that I have knitted three versions already. The first prototype went to my mom, and the sample to Quince, so I wanted…

Fluorite Socks

Vivid Winter issue of Pom Pom Quarterly has so many lovely patterns that I had a hard time choosing which one to start with. I decided to go with the ones that I had yarn for first, and socks that I could use all those leftover sock yarns sounded like a good pattern to start with. Finding a fade of…

The Indie Design Gift-A-Long inspired me to knit one last minute Christmas gift: Rivoletto Mitts by Noriko Ho. I had knitted the UnCrabby Crab for my brother-in-law, and then realised that I had nothing for my sister. This pattern seemed like the perfect gift: pretty, useful and quick to knit.

Every now and then you notice that the kids need socks, and if you can't trick anyone else into knitting them there's not much you can do - knit socks it is then. Luckily, the Indie Design Gift-A-Long was just around the corner when the need for socks appeared, so I looked at the selection of socks…

I knitted the original Liinu Shawl sample in gorgeous Kässäkerho Pom Pom Merino Singles in mint, peach, and apple blossom colorways. I love it and I love the colors (well, guess who chose the colors...), but I wanted to see what the shawl would look like in a darker combo. Pattern: Liinu Shawl…
