The rest of the handmade gifts for my manthing. #brassica knitted hat, pattern by #tiffanyworkman and found on Ravelry. Jersey cross stitched the same way that I did the first one (see previous post) but with many more mistakes. One to appreciate from a distance I reckon. .
Anyway, he is happy and all fits the way it should and I'll be happy to never cross stitch a thing ever again the end.
ドイツのデザイナーBirgitさん @strickie64 がMythica Fibers SockのセミソリッドJe Te Veux をとてもステキなカフダウンの靴下にしてくださいました💕パターンはドイツ語と英語で9月にリリース予定だそうです。(Birgitさんのパターンは今までリリースされたものはなんと全部無料なので、今回もかな？)楽しみです✨
My dear IG friend, German designer Birgit @strickie64 designed beautiful socks using my yarn, Mythica Fibers Sock in semi-solid Je Te Veux 💕 The pattern with English translation will be released in September. I cannot wait to knit one!!
It’s one thousand degrees outside in South Tampa. But I’m drinking hot coffee and reading this amazing book from a knitting mother. ❤️ This is my official summer protest. Complete with holiday instrumentals.
Welcome to Rosie's Knits.
This is me, Rosie!! hanging on my deck while instructing my nearly 10 year old on photo taking while my 2 year old potters around near us. I am an avid beginner/intermediate knitter who especially enjoys knitting baby garments (they finish quickly 😉) but I'm branching out and making things for myself more and more.
I love wool and have been especially interested in breed specific wool such as the trusty Merino and now the plush Polwarth. In New Zealand, we have a lot of sheep. So naturally I'm drawn to NZ wool for my knitting projects which has brought me here, to hand dying NZ yarn for myself and others.
Right now, I'm just having fun! Experimenting with colours 😍 and shades and figuring out gradient dying. Selling the odd skein has been a bonus!
It's hard putting yourself out there but here I am. I would love to hear from you if you like what you see here at Rosie's Knits so I can be inspired to create more luscious hand dyed yarn!
Picture of the lush Polwarth yarn knitted up alongside a merino/silk rainbow to create these cute colour pops throughout the design. Thanks @tincanknits for this lovely free pattern. This is my fourth hat and I already have another on the needles!
Have a wonderful Friday 😘😘
The boys have been a mess during our time in PA—fighting sleep tooth and nail, emotionally fragile, always tired. We’ve taken advantage of grandparents’ babysitting, gone to the circus, explored Gettysburg, and hung out with my sister-in-law and little Eden.
It was amazing. I’m exhausted. So so ready to be home and get the twins back into a semblance of normal.
But I’m glad I finally knitted a thing for my spunky, enthusiastic, high-energy almost-four-year-old niece. Not the best photos, but this pattern is Quaintly on Ravelry, knitted in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino with buttons from Grandma’s jar. I kinda love it.
Our new kitty, Lori, is supervising yarn winding this afternoon. She's about 2 and very laid back, almost like an older kitty. I'm winding yarn to start a Wonderful Wallaby for Ola. I have a ton of extra worsted weight in this color (Desert World), so why not use some? And yes, that means I've started putting yarn aside for auction, so I'll have some teasers for that too. Isn't Lori cute? 😁
Episode 21 of the podcast is up on YouTube😊 Tons of knitting and embroidery on the menu this week!
✨✨✨ I'm working on these pink sparkly socks as a gift for someone special today🦄

My mum dug out this retro #SashaKagan knitting book that belonged to my Grandma and I totally love it! 💙 I remember my Grandma knitting and wearing the Raingirls cardigan back in the 80's 😊 I'd love to knit a couple of the patterns in here but they are too advanced for me at the moment...One day though! 💕

🇫🇷 Как же здорово ранним утром прогуляться по улочкам и бульварам Марселя. Он поражает великолепной современной архитектурой и богатым культурным наследием! Это здание как-будто украшено разноцветными петельками!
My first completed knitting project 🎀
I am semi happy with how it turned out. It would be okay if I was a little bigger however it turns out my neck is pretty thin for this cowl. It was a free pattern from Ravelry called the Mochi Neck Cozy by Sarah Keller.
Yarn used is a 🐝 Yarn Bee 🐝 : Tender Touch - in the color Blue Bell
