Becca Parker  Day job: @molliemakes Side hustle: @tobeadorned Knitter, crocheter, wordy type πŸ“Bristol Looking for my #beemybabyblanket pattern? πŸπŸ‘‡πŸΌ

Nailed it. 🌿

Always gonna stop, drop and knit for a bubba! This one was close to the wire, but loved whipping up a simple cardi in a cheery sort-of ombre. 10/10 would knit again! It's @louisetilbrookdesigns Fuss-free Baby Cardigan, and I used some @dropsdesign Cotton Merino, Paris and @rowanyarns Handknit Cotton.

Sidmouth, it's a yes from me. Rugged cliffs βœ”οΈ Pastel beach huts βœ”οΈ Cute doggos βœ”οΈ Lemon curd ice cream βœ”οΈ

It's happening! πŸ™ˆ Hosting my first legit @tobeadorned workshop in Bristol this weekend and I'd love you to come! Will be making pom pom wreaths on Saturday morning at the pink haven that is @studio.cotton - a few tickets still available on my To Be Adorned profile, snap yours up quick! This is a big ol' step for me, if you could show some love by liking and tagging a crafty south west pal, that would be amazing! πŸ’‹

"Pretend you live here!" Mr P, feeling at home in the 17th century.

When you realise it's almost March and you haven't started hooking your @lottieandalbert #rainbowblanketcal yet! 🌈 πŸ™ˆ BUT, my jumbo 600g ball is wound and ready, all from surplus cotton and wool yarn from my stash, so this totally counts for the #molliestashchallenge right?

When a dye job goes so right! Gave my sad looking, stained and greying @henryholland bobble jumper a new lease of life with a tub of @dylon_uk in china blue and now I LOVE it! Swipe for the before. πŸ’™ Have you had any fun dye experiments?

One minute you're minding your own business, calmly accepting the fact that you already have too many WIPs on the go, the next you're scrabbling in your stash, rounding up rainbow yarns because you can't resist the siren call of the #rainbowblanketcal any longer. This is the most action the big mixing bowl has seen in a while.

Zoo time was a good time. Think I left my heart with a slow loris and a gentle lemur! πŸ’•

New favourite thing: this bee project pouch by my pal @arbradley26 🐝 A percentage of the sales of her bee designs goes to #savethebees πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Still on my needles: those Edith mittens by @fayeperriamreed in @dropsdesign Nepal!

It may have snowed. ❄️

Throwback to 2016 when I first had the bob cut in and was a proper little knitting blogger, faithfully posting on Knit Happens every week! Big love to you if that's how you found me here. πŸ’•πŸ€“ I'm still the same gal, with a craft magazine day job, passionate about sharing a love of stitch, words and telling stories, only now I run @tobeadorned which doesn't leave a lot of (see also: any) time for writing and creating just for this heck of it. I miss it though. I really value it as a space for more sincere, creative and meaningful sharing and am having a think about what I might like to do with it. Were you a Knit Happens reader?
