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…

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…

My first finished project in the Indie Design Gift-A-Long is this Evanlyn Hat by Kaitlyn Yeager. The pattern was chosen by Business Woman, who will also receive this hat as a Christmas gift (if I can get it back after she wore it for the photo shoot). She wanted a tight fitting hat, and I made an…

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…

On my recent trip to Oslo Strikkefestival I noticed many people knitting simple garter stitch scarves. I commented about this to another visitor at the festival, and her first question was: "Were they orange?". She then explained to me about this huge charity knitting project in Norway. The project…

The last round of Tour-de-Sock was a tough one. We knew beforehand that it would be four colors and quite a large amount of yarn. It turned out to be stranded knitting using four colors, which is still ok. The new thing here was jacquard floats, and these two combined made knitting slow. Very…
