Today is all about packing and prep for Yarndale but I need a travel sock - obviously.  Fortunately the #gbsocksawaykal17 starts today (run by Isla of @brityarn) and I found this ready wound skein of slighty vintage yarn from the Knitting Goddess.  So it's a simple toe up sock with a twist. I'm trying a princess Duke for the first time (knitting the top of the foot and putting the bottom). I like how it looks so far but I keep forgetting which side I'm on and accidentally going back the…

I'm trying to be focused on finishing my Morning Pages Shawl for Yarndale but I've reached the conclusion that knitting monogamy doesn't suit me.  I'm enjoying a little dalliance with my alpaca Cardigan before getting back to it. Sssssh.....

Just keep knitting!  I'm into the final third of my Morning Pages Shawl with less than 100g left to knit.  Some seriously long rows now but as long as I keep my focus on it I should be fine for my Yarndale deadline.  #morningpagesshawl #7dayshawl #shawllove #shawlknitting #knitters #tricot #tricoter #knittersoftheworld #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #yarnlove #everydayknitter #designersofinstagram #knitlove #knitlife #knitstagram #instaknit #knitting_inspiration…

For various reasons that I won't bore you with I need to knit a shawl in 7 days. A half finished Morning Pages shawl destined for display at Yarndale on the @emilyfoulds_knits stand was sabotaged in a cat/rodent incident.  So another needs to be knit and fast. I cast on Friday and I have until next Friday. Fortunately I can deliver the shawl in person as I'll be at Yarndale on the Saturday morning.  Today is day 3 of the #7dayshawl and I've knit 145g of the required 300g.  I'm voting for a…

Totally loving the excuse to use my new yarn bowl from @julia.smith.ceramics  I've even resurrected an old design in waiting for the occasion. This is the grown up sister of the #fussfreefestivalshawl which had been languishing for far too long.  Time to crack on and get it off the needles  #knitters #tricot #tricoter #knittersoftheworld #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #yarnlove #everydayknitter #designersofinstagram #knitlove #knitlife #knitstagram #instaknit…

I can't believe I'm up to dividing for the fronts already. Admittedly is thicker yarn than I normally work with and there has been a fair amount of lurgy-related sugar knitting this week but even so.  Quite exciting to be able to make such rapid progress.  #knittinginspiration #knittersofinstgram #igknitters #knitstagram #knitlove #knitlife #purlalpacadesigns #yarnlove #yarnlovechallengeday #texture #autumnfeels #i_loveknitting #designersofinstagram #sweaterknitting #allthegreys #greylove

The Acer n my garden is telling me that autumn is definitely here... And that I need to get a move on if I want to be able to wear this new Mdina cardigan this season.  I'd forgotten how quickly a heavier weight alpaca yarn works up though - so I might just get it finished this side of Christmas.  Does anyone else find that they're hands get tired more easily when working with heavier yarns? I think my hands are so used to sock weight yarn that they complain about anything else.  Any tips…

I'm really enjoying working with this yummy grey Alpaca yarn. And I'd forgotten how much fun moss stitch is when you are using a thicker yarn.  As I'm feeling very autumnal I couldn't resist digging through my stash to find this appropriately russet coloured yarn from Blacker Yarns.  I was thinking of pairing it with some grey (surprise) and maybe making a lap blanket.  Decisions... Hope you are enjoying your weekend knitting too.  #knitters #tricot #tricoter #knittersoftheworld…

It was the thought of mornings just like the that kept me going through the acres of grey stocking stitch with this #breathingspace sweater.  Cool crisp autumn mornings. Slighty misty. And perfect for flinging on a casual sweater over jeans.  And I even found my first proper autumn leaf in the car park.  It's fate I tell you... #sweaterknitting #sweaterweather #fallknits #autumnknitting #knittersofinstgram #igknitters #knittersofig #sockyarnsweater #stripelove #i_loveknitting #knitlove…

Since a random mention of the Russian Join and making "magic balls" of yarn I may have become a teeny bit obsessed.  So much so that it sparked the new September challenge over on my Everyday Knitter Facebook group.  We are challenging ourselves to use up some scrap sock yarn - nearly dovetailing with #zerowasteweek - and to make a magic ball.  And then to find a fun simple project to use it in.  Fancy joining in? Click on the link in the bio to find the group.  #knitters #tricot #tricoter…
