It's freaking freezing here today - expecting a top of 17 degrees! Wearing a #memade cropped #flaxlightsweater and #memade necklace from a piece of 1970's Japanese stoneware (formerly a dinner plate). Also wearing rtw jeans, shirt and #swedishhasbeens . Also, I only have two pics today, so bonus pic of Huckke-chan the lap cat. ❤
YOU GUYSSSSS. HERES MY BIG SECRET! I was secretly collaborating with Tiffany of @twillandprint and LOOK! She’s amazing - she made my enamel pin dreams come true (which I was convinced she had already done if you’ve ever seen her products) and no amount of thank yous will ever be enough! I was so excited about these pins and their arrival that I created a SPECIAL colourway in their honour - a Street Car Named Desire. There’s a deep meaning behind it 😉. These will go LIVE tomorrow with the update at 8pm EST! 🧡
#memade cropped #flaxlightsweater getting a lot of wear at the moment - I knitted this in #BendigoWoollenMills Luxury 4 ply yarn and then steeked it and turned it into a cardigan. I probably could have gone down a size tbh, but it's fine. I'm also wearing an opshopped mens shirt - I'm thinking of taking up the hem but I quite like the tunic length. Also wearing an #erstwilderofficial Greyhound brooch.
We are officially in the third trimester (HOW?!) and it’s wedding day which means it’s selfish knitting day 🙌🏻. I won’t be able to knit in a super public place today, but I got to yesterday for a whole hour!
I’ve been slowly collecting and making special little things for this new babe and realized there was a colour theme 😍 and all of these are from local maker mamas who have become friends! (Sweaters knit by me 😊) Tap the photo for the shops!
💪Almost finished re-knitting the hem, which I decided to knit an extra 2 inches of length since my 4 year-old has a super long torso like her Daddy. I’m so excited for sleeve island!!! Knitting one project now takes 5 times longer with a baby...especially now that naptime is filled with dyeing yarn! 😂😂😂 Maybe I’m too ambitious with all the things I want to do, but that’s the way I’ve always been. 😁 I’m a workaholic deep down, so it’s hard for me to slow down. That whole slow living movement is super attractive to me, but I don’t know how realistic it is for me, although I do try. Anyone else struggle with this?! Pattern: Flax Light Sweater by @tincanknits
Yarn: Songbyrdy OOAK “Bubbleyum” on Virtuoso 2-ply Sock (80% SW Merino/ 20% Nylon)
I finished my baby Flax Light!
I used a very special skein of Junkyarn for this sweater that @wraybot gave to me at Knit City last year 💕 this is the Wendy colorway.
The pattern is by @tincanknits
I knit the 6-12 month size, but it came out more like the 3-6 month size because I used smaller needles than the pattern called for.
So excited to be able to put this on an actual small human! My due date is 1 week away. 💪
If you want to share, I’d be interested to know if your first baby was born early or late? Leave a comment 👇❤️ #flaxlight#flaxlightsweater#baby#babyknits#babyclothes#handmade#knitting#knittersofinstagram#junkyarn#39weekspregnant#thefawnknits
CLOSING TIME—headed back to the USA tomorrow after a wonderful vacation but in the meantime, at a bar, on a rooftop, within shouting distance of the #acropolis is one of the best #placesyoucanknit I have found yet. (And no, I still haven’t finished this darn sweater. For one, it’s just been too hot to knit and also: #sleeveisland is real) #knitstagram#gaugedyeworks#athens#greece#iknitwhereiwant#travel#flaxlightsweater ADDENDUM @brewred this photo is actually taken on top of the hotel we stayed at in the summer of 2000; I went in on a whim because my feet hurt and I wanted to sit down but this is actually the very same @herodionhotelathens we were at the last time! Weird how things happen.
Tale of two sweaters! My first actual garments since I’ve been knitting more seriously. I made a few really dodgy baby sweaters in my twenties but those don’t really count 😂. The adult one is in Malabrigo and it’s the #flaxsweater . The mini version is the #flaxlightsweater in @madelinetosh. Somehow I ended up choosing two colorways from two different companies that are virtually identical! The little one is a gift for a friend’s first grandson. I knit the 6-12 month size so he could grow into it!

My #flaxlightsweater is coming along. I really enjoy the way the sock yarn is knitting up and how it feels. I have listed these two colors in my Etsy shop. Link in bio. Check out my other new color ways. #frederickfiberfest
This weather requests cotton! I’m knitting with Erika Knight Gossypium Cotton. High quality cotton in beautiful colours. 50g contains 100m, needle size 3,75-4mm. Gauge 20(22)/28(31). Pattern: Flax light designed by Tin Can Knits and Yeah!!! It’s a free pattern 😍😍. Because of the stripes I skipped the ribbing.
Unelmissani jokainen kesäpäivä olisi yhtä lämmin kuin tänään on ollut. Öisin sataisi. Koko toukokuun olen rakastanut tuota taivaansinistä paitaa ja taidan saada rakastaa vielä kesäkuussakin. Hihahommat jatkuu! Pienimmät keräsi maljakkoon mamman suosikkikukkaset, on ne ihania. Kukkaset ja lapsoset! Lempeää toukokuun vikan maanantain iltaa 🌞 #knitting#holstgarncoast#summerflowers#flaxlightsweater#villapesuflax
We have a sleeve! Now, on to the next. I'm really ready to be done with this project, why do sleeves seem to take so long??? Probably because when the body is done you think you're so close and then it takes twice as much time to add sleeves. Ugh.
🙄 Was about to go to sleeve island but tried this #flaxlightsweater on my 4 year-old and realized I forgot how long her torso is! So I’m going to rip out the ribbing and knit a few more inches. I didn’t want to block it too aggressively! 🤗 I’m using up some of my hand-dyed yarn that went a little rogue on me while I got busy taking care of my little one. 😂 It turned out way different than I originally calculated, and I can’t recreate it! 😬 #tincanknits
Yesterday @angie.burgett asked me what was on my needles.... and I’m ashamed to say nothing 😱😱 I just cast off my zweig sweater and need to weave my ends in and was just about to cast on this #flaxlightsweater while waiting for my flight at the airport but I brought the wrong needles 🤭 so first stop once in Québec will be to pick up the right needles 😅 Good thing I brought a book too for this flight 😂 •
Im going to ask @rosemarietin and @sophiecrespy for what’s in their needles ❤️
