🧦 made so much sockgress this weekend at @ourmakerlife testing out my new sock kit combos (coming soon) because I was finally surrounded by people who ALSO find it acceptable to be knitting while listening to inspiring talks and discussions 😅🙌🏻 does anyone else get self conscious about working on WIPs when listening to others talk when surrounded by non-knitters? I feel like I always get the stank eye 👀 I can knit and listen at the same time, I swear!
Pattern: How I Make My Socks by @susanbanderson
Yarn: Lichen + Lavendula Sock Kit 🧦
Making progress on sock #2 in @knitpatons Kroy socks. Zipping along on the leg. Only working the pattern on the front instead of all around. Can’t wait to finish these.
And yes, in the background are my #starwars comic strip tights.

I am in love with this @knittedwit yarn!! This #Neapolitan color is the perfect solution to ice cream on a Keto diet!! #tuesdaytruth
The original yarn that inspired my new pattern #enchantedsummershorties is back in stock!! Order yours now ready for the pattern release this weekend! This merino and nylon mix from @somersetyarns is beautifully soft while lightweight which makes it a great choice for summer knits! The colours are gorgeous #nofilterneeded and it's washes nicely too! Go on treat your feet! 🧦
Regrann from @somersetyarns - Have you seen this beautiful new sock design by @insta_louby.loulabellaknits being released very soon. Louise used my Enchanting Unicorns colourway. I have now re-stocked this colourway on my Sw Merino/ Nylon base. I will be dyeing some more up on SW BFL/ Nylon aswell. - #regrann
Are you ready? You’re taking a 6-month, solo vacation to a desert island and you will FINALLY have the time to focus on that one project you’ve always wanted to knit - which one is it? I’ll start: I’m going with the #ohrashawl by @boylandknitworks, which I’ve had yarn purchased and waiting to be knit for maybe a million years. Ok, your turn! What would you knit on that desert island?

So it's always a little nerve wracking sharing something you've created with the world. I sometimes catch myself thinking "who am I to create?" "Am I good enough to design?" "Who would want this?!". And I am learning to stop that voice in its tracks. Because who are we *not* to grow, share, express ourselves and passions? I'm here to grow...not just my stitch count or knitting yardage, my business or my design portfolio. I want to grow deep roots, ground myself, and I want to watch you grow too! I want to take the things knitting has taught me - patience, self-reliance, self-confidence - with me out into the "real world"! But all of this scares the socks off of me. I doubt. And then I remember this is my passion. I am meant to be doing this.
So here I am, standing in my freshly knit Architexture Socks, standing in my vulnerability with you. I may seem confident, and make this stuff is easy, but it ain't. And that's okay. And I'm taking it a stitch at a time.
In other news...the test knit is going very well (🙌#humblebrag they are the best dang tester squad). And I'm aiming for a release early August. I have that "new project" jitters! 🤓
Putting anything out into the world can be terrifying, whether it's speaking up, sharing your passion, or expressing your opinion. And our society needs work on hearing the voices of women in the conversation even more so. What gives you fuel to take a confident step forward?

Nå skal hæl strikkes 🙂
1. Strikk rett over de 32 første maskene
2. Strikk vrangt tilbake, utenom den siste masken. Den tas av som om du skulle strikke den vrang. Ha tråden foran arbeidet.
3. Strikk ei maske, ta neste av som om du skulle strikke den vrang, gjenta disse to maskene til siste maske, legg tråden foran arbeidet, og ta den av som om du skulle strikke den vrang.
Gjenta omg 2 og 3 til det er strikket 31 omganger.
Hvis jeg har telt riktig nå, så skal man starte fra vrangsiden.
1. Strikk 19 vrang, 2 vrang sammen, 1 vrang, snu arbeider
2. Ta første maske løst av, strikk 7 rett, 2 vridd rett sammen, 1 rett, snu.
3. Strikk vrang til siste masken før gapet, strikk 2 vrang sammen, 1 vrang, snu
4. Ta første maske løst av, strikk rett til siste masken før gapet, 2 vridd rett sammen, 1 rett, snu.
Gjenta 3 og 4 til alle maskene i sidene er strikket opp.
Det er da 20 masker på pinnen
Fortsettelse følger ... .
So I realized when I posted last night that I don’t post as much knitting as I originally planned. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been knitting my balls away (get it??). I’m as feverish a knitter as ever. I’m in the middle of catching up on finishing older languishing projects and designing a few new patterns, as well as failing to release my sock pattern that was test knit a couple of months ago, and working on a collaboration with a friend who is a photographer. Anyway, this pictured project is the #roadtorhinebeck shawl that was a Mystery Knit Along back in October of last year. I kind of let it fall to the wayside but restarted it last week and it’s such a gorgeous knit! I’m feeling a little ADD about it at the moment but I want to plug through and get it done. I’m so sick of projects just sitting around. #knit#knittersofinstagram#addictedtoknitting#sockknitting#sockknitter#sockknittersofinstagram#addictedtosockknitting#knitterforlife#ifimsittingimknitting#knittingchick#roadtorhinebeckmkal @knittingexpat 🙂
I’ve cast off 2 pairs of socks today so I’ve naturally wound up yarn for 2 more pairs 😁 top to bottom @beehiveyarns to go with @riverknitsuk and then @misterbs_yarn which is going to be my first pair of toe up socks - wish me luck!! #sockknitter#sockknittersofinstagram#knittingaddict
A mother and daughter duo knitting the Fingering Michigan Avenue Wrap together!! @mandyschneller @sonyaschneller I LOVE how your wraps are turning out and your fun color changes! So beautiful! 🌈

Thank you all for sharing your progress photos and finished projects using my patterns and/or yarns! I love seeing how they look!!!
Ferie strik. 😎 Har slet ikke lyst til at strikke på de her sokker. Men de er til en bekendt, og har længe ligget i skammekrogen. Nu har de fået hæl og et lille bitte skaft. Kun mange cm skaft tilbage😣 ham vil nemlig have lange skafter så de kan titte over arbejdsstøvlerne...
