Got my @knitcrate today! It’s such fun getting this on my doormat, great way to try out new yarn you wouldn’t normally buy or try. I think I’m going to knit mittens with these for winter... or crochet....🤔❤️ #knitcrate #unravelyourknitcrate #knitology #surprise #knitting #crochet #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #instaknit #instacrochet #croché #croche #haken #häkeln #haekle #hekling #virka #ganchillo #tricoter #trapillo #uncinetto #craftastherapy #tejer #strikke #stricken #breien

Here I am again with my knitting... sorry if you’re here for the crochet, but it’s just too hottttt... I can only manage dumb knitting. This is going wonderfully well though, I’m really liking where this is going! I’m going to stick with the stockinette and let the colours speak for themselves. Those little cute pandas are my point protectors I got for my birthday 😊❤️Pattern: by me.

Knitting at the kiddie pool... working on my Big Bold Stripey Shawl. I’m need some advice from my knitty friends, what do you think? I’m thinking about changing to seed stitch rows after ten stockinette striped rows. Should I do it? Or just keep going with the stockinette? This will be a top down triangle shawl made with two @scheepjes whirls. Let me know what you think! Also, both colours have now gone into the first colour change! 🎉🎉 #bigboldstripeyshawl #whirl #scheepjeswhirl #scheepjes #shawl #knittedshawl #knitted #knitting #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersoftheworld #breien #strikke #stricken #stitchgwen #strikkedilla #gestrickt #tejer #tricoter #craftastherapy #knittinginthewild #gebreidesjaal #gestreept #strepen #stripes #stripey #hiyahiya #sundayknitting

Yesterday I was asked by @tossedwave what I was doing last year.... that was this big blanket! It must be the most beautiful and favorite thing I’ve ever made and I really want to make another one in a different colour scheme. I called this one English Rose and it had quite the journey to get to it’s forever home. Luckily it did arrive there and I’m sure it’s loved as much as I did. This pic shows how I planned a bit for every round, I would lay them all out and put them in numbered plastic bags. That way I didn’t have to think, just grab the bag with the right colour number and off I went. Would you like to play? @dreamsofanne @anniedesigncrochet and @hookonepurlone if you’d like of course. 😊❤️ Pattern: Circle of Friends by Priscilla Hewitt and KnitTiki via Ravelry. #englishrose #circleoffriends #circleoffriendsblanket #priscillahewitt #stylecraft #stylecraftspecialdk #croche #croché #crochet #hækle #hekle #haekle #haken #häkeln #haekle #virka #ganchillo #uncinetto #trapillo #craftastherapy #crochetersoftheworld #crochetersofinstagram #instacrochet #stitchgwen #crochetblanket #blanket

Footstool cover progress: All the hexies have been made in all the colours! I’ve put them back in the bag so I can pick some new combinations. This is fun! The ‘wrong side’ doesn’t look half bad either! Pattern: spiderweb hexie by me, soon on Ravelry for free.

What panic looks like when you discover a mistake in your lace knitting and are not so very experienced in solving this problem.... in the end I only ripped back three rows, so it’s okay. And I did manage (I think, fingers crossed) to get it back on the needles the right way. For now it’s in the naughty corner 😒 back to crochet then!

Tiny perfection. I’ve made about three of these today, this one is just two rounds in, somehow they’re a lot of work. It’s not a fast little hexie. But the result is so stunning!

Made a start on the Spiderwebhexie stool cover. Looking promising already 😊. I pick five balls without looking and crochet them in the order I got them out of the bag. I put the ones I’ve used in a separate basket, so all colours will get their turn. When I’ve had them all, I’ll put them back in and start over. As random as you can get! Pattern by me, soon to be on Ravelry for free. Yarn is @scheepjes stonewashed and riverwashed XL cutie pies.

It’s my birthday today!! 🎉🎉 I got this from my Man for a gift. Isn’t it pretty! Remember those little hexies I designed a few months back? I think it was February 🤔😊 I’m going to use my pattern and make a new footstool cover with these. It’s going to be quite the puzzle as my footstool is round so I’ll have to use pentagons too. I’ll see how it goes. Im thinking of writing the pattern and putting up on Ravelry for free, what do you think? I’m going to stick these all in my new (self made) project bag and blindly pick the colours for every hexie. This is going to be funnnn!!! #spiderwebhexie #scheepjes #scheepjesstonewashedxl #stonewashedxl #riverwashedxl #scheepjesriverwashedxl #haken #haekle #häkeln #hækle #hekle #hekling #virka #ganchillo #trapillo #uncinetto #croche #croché #crochet #crochetersofinstagram #crochetersoftheworld #instacrochet #spiderwebhexagon #craftastherapy #craftastherapy_displayit #stitchgwen

I’ve made a project bag! And it’s a big one! I will use it to store big knitting projects, I’ve put 3 400gram balls in there, caked up and ready to go. It’s got some facing, so it stands upright on its own. I love it, I’m so happy with it. And it’s a happy accident, I didn’t fully understand the sewing pattern I used so I had intended it to be wider than higher, but it’s actually the other way round. Doesn’t matter! Happy knitter, I am! Swipe left for more pics. I see more fun project bags in my future! I got inspired by @starryeyesali ‘s Dodgy bags and her fabulous podcast Little Drops of Wonderful on YouTube.

In between some sewing, quick little pattern test for @yoyingers she’s made a cute fun coaster pattern called Cat Bum Coaster! 😆😆😆 Very beginner friendly 😊 #catbumcoaster #craftastherapy #stylecraft #stylecraftspecialdk #patterntesting #croche #croché #crochet #haken #haekle #häkeln #hækle #hekle #virka #ganchillo #trapillo #uncinetto #instacrochet #crochetersoftheworld #crochetersofinstagram

Now isn’t this just stunning... 😍😍 I’m sooo in love with the colour combo of these skeins... I really love this wrap, it’s just so wonderful! Dreading the next lace part though, lace and me do not agree 🤣 but I’ll make it work. Just take it slow and add a lifeline after every row and all will be fine 😬. Now, the colours I’ve used: the pink one is by @ateliersopra , the white one is by @misterbs_yarn / @birdstreetuk and the lavender one is by @dropsdesign baby Merino. Just lovely! Pattern by @jojilocat called Suburban Wrap.
