Finished #testknit for @olgajazzyknits #lolocowl Two balls of sport (pattern called for worsted but our worsted would be too heavy for this and I got spot on gauge with the sport ). Great looking cowl. I swear those lips were speaking to me while I was knitting! Pattern is written in two sizes, this is the smaller one, I think I might need to make the larger one since we’ll be on #lockdown for a while yet.. Look for the Lips Cowl on Ravelry - release date is April 2nd - I’ll post a final pic of the blocked version after pattern release. Knit this cowl! It’s fun!

On a mission to finish this test knit for @olgajazzyknits tonight ... maybe tomorrow- it’s the #lolocowl I swear it’s talking to me - looks like a cartoon going “blah!blah!blah!” Or perhaps singing a choral masterpiece.. Colors are surf and coral reef. Pattern calls for worsted but getting perfect gauge with our heavier sport (dk ) weight yarn.

Working on a super fun #testknit for @olgajazzyknits in my scattered minutes of down time. Her designs are so clever and this one is beautifully simple and wondrously creative. Publication is planned for early April so keep an eye out for this one! #lolocowl

Late summer fills the gardens with beautiful, richly colored Dahlias. I was inspired to create a colorway that had all the colors I could see: Marigold, Deep Yellow, Peach and Soft Red.

We could all use a bit of Luck of the Irish right now - check out the Axiom Shawl, shown here in Helium and Krypton, our vibrant (lucky? ) neon green! Concentric garter stitch triangles with a neon accent create a modern triangular shawl. This shawl requires two of our yummy Shawl Balls to complete. #knittersofinstagram #gradientyarn #handdyedyarn #igknitters #freiafibers #makersgonnamake #keepcalmandknit #supportindiedyers #supportlocal #supportyourfriends #savesmallbusiness #womanownedbusiness #shoplocal https://freiafibers.com/store/p83/Axiom_Shawl.html

The street where I live is pretty quiet. Today, not a car has gone by and the birds are in full morning chorus. Working a few rounds on my #shiftysweater while waiting for my baguette dough to rise (from homemade starter and scratch no less! ). The yarn is my Merino Silk fingering with Lucas as the background and Vitamin C, Chinook and Vintage as the ‘blips’. It’s a lovely morning and not that different for me from most sundays, but this one feels quieter and more solitary. Thinking of everyone out there, all of us in the same boat, and if you’re like me, staying home more out of a concern for others than for one’s self. ETA: if you want to see the awesome 🥖 🥖 🥖 I made clink the link in profile - they are delicious! #knittersgonnaknit #freiafibers #washyourhands #keepknitting https://www.instagram.com/p/B9w-WUmJlS-/?igshid=vt0y4jilofx6

In the process of working on keeping my wits about me and not getting too sucked into the news, this pretty awesome scarf design popped into my head and right back out on to my needles. Her name is Passeggiata as the way the Minikins unfolded reminded me of Missoni’s amazing designs and gave me the feeling of what one might wear while strolling at twilight in Venice. Final dimensions are 16” by 80” and it called for one Minikin Palette Pack - shown here in the Earthy color. I’m doing some final checks on the pattern this weekend and will be releasing it early next week. In the meantime I’ve picked out my next set of colors to work it in and @thesensiblesheep is also testing it in some assorted dreamy blues... what colors would you pick?
