Picking up my "happy scrappy socks" again! Using two self-patterning sock yarns, swapped every row or two to break up the pattern and creating a totally different look. πŸ’• Aiming to have all my sock WIPS off the needles by the end of the month! πŸ˜„#knitting #nevernotknitting #knittingaddict #sockknitting #happyscrappysocks #sockyarn #opalyarn #knittersofinstagram #knittingmama #knit

Weekend wanderings should always include a castle. πŸ°πŸ’•πŸ˜‰ (And Biergarten afterward! πŸ»πŸ˜„) || My apologies it's been a little quiet here--my inlaws are visiting for a couple weeks and we've been busy traveling and the days have been flying by before I get a chance to really engage on social media. πŸ™ˆ But I'll be back to normal posting soon, promise! 😘 #lifeingermany #schlosslichtenstein #castle #travel #europe #germany #lichtensteincastle

The level of excitement I feel over knitting socks with my handspun yarn is overwhelming! πŸŽ‰ (I think my husband is getting tired of my exclamations when I work on this sock! πŸ˜‚) I ended up altering my original plans for this @elfenwolle sock wool braid a bit: I was going to do a 3-ply, but my singles were a bit too thick so it became a 2-ply in the end. Which meant the colors were a bit more muddled than what chain-plying would have produced. Still, I'm terribly enchanted with the finished yarn and excited to be knitting socks with it! It's far more textured than commercially spun sock yarn, and I find that really a fun change. Goodness knows I have a million other projects on the needles, but I couldn't help casting this on as soon as a caked up the first skein of yarn. I have more details on my Ravelry project page for this spin, if anyone is interested (linkn in profile). I'm already shopping around for more wool/Nylon roving (or maybe a wool/mohair/Nylon blend?) for spinning even more sock yarn! I think it might make the perfect gifts for a few special knitters in my life. πŸ’— I've also been watching past episodes of @welfordpurls Wool n Spinning podcast and she has some great tips on sock yarn spinning! Be sure to check her out if you're interested in spinning sock yarn (or just spinning in general)--in eager to incorporate some of the techniques I've gleaned into my next spin! #knitting #nevernotknitting #strick #knit #handspinnersofinstagram #handspun #sockknitting #addictedtoknitting #knittingaddict #igspinnersinspiration #knitstagram #yarn #handdyedfiber #sockknittersofinstagram #handmade #elfenwolle #knittingmama #handspunstagram #handspunyarn

Yesterday the most delightful package from Hilde and Lieke of @debreistaat arrived! πŸ’• I don't even know how to articulate how special these vintage knitting and needlework books are to me--and I am bowled over by their generosity! 😘😊 I've been quite inspired looking through these--and very intrigued by how European designs differ from American styles of the same eras. Thank you, Hilde and Lieke! ✨ swipe for loads more inspiring images! ✨ #vintage #1930s #1950s #knitting #vintageknitting #strick #retro #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #nevernotknitting #knittingaddict #vintageneedlework #1960s #vintagefashion

I'm definitely having a moment with spinning this week. πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚ Finished my sock spin singles and need to ply this weekend. But In the meantime, I couldn't help starting this "smoke" gradient merino braid by @mcmullinfiberco I've divided the braid up for a fractal spin, and am aiming for a heavy lace/light fingering two ply in the end. πŸ’• This started with black and goes to a creamy natural--I can't wait to see everything plied! #spinolution #pollywog #spinnersofig #igspinners #handspinnersofinstagram #handspun #fractalspinning #mcmullinfiberco #gradientspin

Post school-shopping treat: apfeltraum (at least that's what the bakery calls it--looks different from the examples on Google! πŸ˜‚) and a cup of earl grey. β˜•οΈπŸ˜ #greydays #lifeingermany

Happy colors! 🌈😍 Starting on my (hopefully) sock spin using a gorgeous braid by @elfenwolle I'm so, so pleased with how this is spinning up--the depth and richness of colors are amazing. #spinnersofig #spinolution #pollywog #spinolutionpollywog #igspinners #spinningfiber #fiberspinnersofinstagram #elfenwolle #wolle #yarn #spinninginspiration #spinstagram

Yesterday I was feeling a bit frazzled and over tired. So I picked up my neglected crochet stripe blanket that evening, put a British mystery series on tv, and nine (!) rows later realized I just really needed a project like this: colorful and a bit mindless. πŸ’• I don’t have to worry about shaping, whether I like how something is knitting up, or keeping track of rows. I just go! #crochet #crochetstripeblanket #crochetrabbithole #scrappycrochet #knitting #nevernotknitting #knittersofinstagram #knittingaddict #knit #yarn #knittinginspiration #knitstagram #knitspiration #yarnlove #yarnstagram #knittingmachine #knittingmama #stricken #handknit #igknitters #knittingmom #handmade

I've been laying low this week because I got a super fun summer cold and it just is not going away. 😩🀧 In the meantime, I've been working on finishing up the writing portion of my sock pattern. My hat goes off to all knitting pattern designers out there--even writing a simple pattern is a lot of work! I've frogged, second guessed my formulas, had my calculator app up almost constantly, and sent "scary" emails to find out about tech editing and other big stuff. I'm excited though! I've tweaked a few things about the original socks I knit up earlier this year, and expanded it a bit. Though I normally get bored knitting a sock pattern more than once, this project is definitely made 100x better by using this gorgeous @voolenvine yarn in Stardust on the Blitzed base. The colors--when combined with the cream yarn, make me think of the 80s. Dusty mauve, grey blues and pops of bright pink. Love it! πŸ’• #knittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #knittingaddict #knitting #yarn #knitstagram

✨ Attention fellow SOCK KNITTERS! ✨ I'm reworking the sock pattern I designed and knit earlier this year, hopefully to publish soon. But I'm curious: do you prefer knitting top-down socks or toe-up? Or instructions for both options? I'd love to hear some input! πŸ’• (Thank you in advance!!! 😘) #knittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #knittingaddict #knittingmama #sockknitting #knitstagram #sockknittersofinstagram

Finally put some finishing touches on this #mioromper by @pippy_eve I started earlier in the summer for Mr. P. He's grown quite a bit the last two months, but I think he can get a couple wears out of this before its too small and the weather cools off. πŸ˜‰ Love how this knit up! A very quick knit (even if it took me forever to sew the buttons on πŸ™ˆπŸ˜œ). πŸ’— #knitting #knittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #knittingaddict #knittingmama #strick #yarn #babyknits #knit #knitstagram
