Welcome to a peek behind the designer’s curtain! I have an idea, so I cast on a swatch last night. These are my essential tools when I’m first starting a design project. Obviously, I need yarn! I’m working with @modeknityarn on this design. My swatch is in progress on my needles. A favorite tool is the swatch ruler from @annbuddknits. It makes it so easy to determine gauge from my knitting. Of course, I have my red notebook with my design ideas. Eventually, a lot of these ideas make their way to a file on my computer. The second picture shows my scale, which is essential for knowing how much yarn I’m using, and how much I have left. #knitting #knittersofinstagran #knitdesign #designersofinstagram

I am so excited to announce the release of my newest pattern today! It's called Tiger Owl and is the official knit pattern for the @carolinafiberfest 2020 craft-along! There's a link to the free pattern in my IG profile.⁠ ⁠ Knitted in sport weight, this cowl is easily adaptable to other yarn weights. The size of the cowl can be adjusted (both in the height and the circumference) by modifying the number of tiger owl motifs that are knit. Knit the pattern as written for a loose neck cowl, or modify it to make the cowl completely your own. Modifications will, of course, affect your yarn requirements. Yarns in solid or tonal colorways will work best to show off the cowl's lace; wildly variegated yarns will not.⁠ ⁠ This pattern is appropriate for an adventurous beginner while remaining interesting for more advanced knitters.⁠ ⁠ #TigerOwlCowl #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitdesign #knittingdaddydesigns #carolinafiberfest #cffcal2020 #carolinafiberfest2020

This is my happy place. I am working the increases on my Gramps cardigan (pattern by @tincanknits) with a M1R for increases before a stitch marker and a M1L for increases after a stitch marker. The result is a beautiful symmetrical piece with the increases appearing to grow out of a crisp line running down the work. Paying attention to details like this is a great way to ensure your finished object looks as sharp as it can. The instructions call for a M1, so I took the opportunity to research how the various ways of increasing would look and decided this is exactly the strategy I wanted to employ. Seriously, I could look at symmetry in knitting like this all day long. Structure like this is what first attracted me to the craft. #knitting #knittersofinstagram

This month’s @knitcrate is inspired by birds and centers around the “Take Wing” theme. I get the Membership crate and my package included two hanks of Knitologie Worsted in the Kestral colorway. It’s 100% superwash merino and I love the purples. I’ll probably end up making something for my mom — maybe the Eklutna Lakeside Shawl by @craftytuts, which is the featured knitting pattern. I love the surprises that show up on my doorstep each month. —— Knitcrate is a premium yarn subscription service.

I love the math involved in knitting! I'm currently working on a triangular shawl (the Eklutna Lakeside Shawl by @craftytuts Mary Dickerson). Yesterday, I decided to create a spreadsheet to help track my progress. Since this triangular shawl is constructed starting at the center spine and grows wide and deep as you go, it feels like I made very quick progress at the beginning and that I slow down as I go. That's just an illusion — since there are fewer stitches in the earlier rows, the early rows are completed quicker. For example, I have knitted a little fewer than half of the rows in the shawl, but I've only completed a little more than a quarter of the knitting required. The number of stitches on the needles increase by six every two rows; it doesn't take long to get from having a dozen stitches on the needles to having a couple hundred.⁠ ⁠ Besides satisfying my curiosity as I knit, creating the spreadsheet to track my percentage complete will help me make sure I don't end up playing yarn chicken at the end. I know exactly how much yarn I started with, and when I get close to the end, I can determine if I'll have enough to finish it. If I don't, I can just bind off a row or two earlier. Not that I expect it to happen, but it's nice to have the insurance in place now — before it becomes an issue.⁠ ⁠ Yarn is Knitologie Worsted in the Kestral colorway by @knitcrate.⁠ I received it in my August 2019 Membership crate.⁠ ——⁠ Knitcrate is a premium yarn subscription service.

Did you know it is Police Week? Originally designated by JFK, it has evolved over time to honor those who serve and protect. To help support this recognition, let's take a look at this large project tote featuring a famous Police Box. Measuring 8" x 4.5" at the base and and standing 11.25" tall, this is generously sized. With two interfacings, it is slightly padded and can stand on it's own. A wrist strap makes it easy to grab and go.
