Swatching alllll the swatches - now that my #breathingspacesweater is (finally!) finished, on to the next winter wardrobe-replenishing project or three… #knittersofinstagram
Pre- (L) and post- (R) blocking - it really smooths out the pattern and makes it stand out! I'm so happy with how this turned out 😄 And the colours!
Ignoring what is turning out to be a bit of a shitty week with good company and Vietnamese for lunch! #foodisthebombdiggity #yesisaidbombdiggity
Well it would be rude not to have crêpes for dinner… #pancakeday
On to the two-colour mosaic part! Yesss #casualbitofdeckknitting #knittersofinstagram #ravelry
Slim pickings in the biscuit tin… #givemeallthemadeleines
What I should have done before starting: knit a pattern swatch. Turns out that the needle size was indeed too big…time to start again. For the fourth time. With the needles I originally cast on with 😣 Damnit. #stubbornfornoreason #goingrogueonapattern #knittersofinstagram
Absolutely loving the colours and feel of this @dyehappyyarn alpaca/merino wool! Buuuut I've been dithering for about 90 rows on whether I went too big on the needle size. I can't decide so I just keep knitting - at this rate the shawl will be finished before I reach a conclusion! #imissknittingclub #knittersofinstagram
Red sky at night… 🌅
My #breathingspacesweater got put aside for a little while, but I'm finally (!) onto the sleeves #soclose #ravelry #knittersofinstagram
Yay summer! Hmmm… #asgreyaswinter #bringbacktheblueskies
Oooooo wouldn't this be wonderful? #mothyandthesquid40
