Wasn’t gonna do it, but I did it! I’m really excited to take part in #fibreshare because it means making a new crafty friend, and exchanging some awesome goods. Crossing my fingers for an international match because I would love to work with yarns from another part of the world! 🤩💖🌎

Got to work early today so I pulled out my project bag and snuck in a few more rows on my newest cast on. I had been holding on to a few skeins of this yarn for a couple years, unsure of what to use it for, and happily discovered I have just the right amount for the Worsted/Aran weight version of this shawl. ✨I’ve never knit a basic triangle shawl before but I live how smooshy it is, and I learned how to do a provisional garter tab cast on... double awesome!! 😄
Pattern: Grain by @tincanknits

Yarn chicken WIN. Swipe to see the colourful and awkwardly photographed FO! 😂 This was the only knitting I managed to do during the Christmas break, after rummaging through my stash of partially used skeins!! This hat is at home drying after last night’s blocking bath and I plan to make a few small modifications before drafting up the pattern... I’d like to try this in two colours! What do you think?

Hello from Burnaby Mountain! Couldn’t resist taking pics on my way to work this morning. Yesterday’s snow fest froze overnight so all the trees (and everything else up here) are wearing white and it is so beautiful! We will have clear and sunny goodness from now until Christmas and then I think we’re in for a bit more snow. I’m SO pumped!!!

Good thing I put my winter tires on last night!! SFU is now a [slightly wet but beautiful] winter wonderland! Maybe we won’t have a green Christmas?!?

Car knitting! We are headed out of the city to choose and chop a Christmas tree. 🎄 Hat is almost done. In a moment I’ll start into the second ball of yarn for another 5cm and then (yay) I can begin decreasing and get this bad boy off my needles. ...

Hat progress! My evening has been nada but knitting which I really needed so I could zip through more of this xmas gift. I’m a little worried I won’t have it done by Sunday.... it’s going to be a bit of a race, and I think my fingers might fall off. 😂

Cast on a new project today... this is both a Christmas gift and a skill-builder! I learned the longtail tubular cast on for this hat, and I’m working entirely in continental style. I’ve found both techniques are a bit tricky with fingering weight yarn and a 1x1 ribbed fabric but so far so good. What’s on your needles right now? 😍

My first order is going in the mail tomorrow! Swipe to see a sample smorgasbord shot (say that 5 times fast) of items listed today, and again to see me in my favourite chunky slouch, the Clague toque. I have a couple of each size (baby, child, adult) up for grabs!

Busy day! My Etsy shop goes live tomorrow afternoon so I’m preparing ball bands, photographing my items, and drafting item descriptions to make filling in the listings easier/faster. 💥 I happily started my day with that very green swatch (Berroco Ultra Alpaca) and soon will make a run to the post office to send the purple toque/mitt set off to its new home. After that, more photography! 🤩

YOU GUYS! I am so excited to say that my shop opens on Tuesday! I don’t have a ton of items but I will be adding more probably every few weeks. This launch will include toques, headbands, a few cowls, some knit kits (hand dyed yarn with a hat pattern) and maybe a few other goodies. Watch for another update in the coming days. 🖤

Yesterday’s toque sample is off the needles! 👀💖 I will be blocking it and writing the pattern this weekend. Now the important questions... do I add a pom or no? And in gold, or a third colour? I’d love to hear what you think. 👇👇

Hogwarts vibes today! Another hat in the works, atop the awesome Marauder’s Map scarf I picked up at Vancouver Fan Expo on Saturday. I could happily knit all the things in this colour combo! 💛🖤
