Review – KnitSwag
  • Kelly of KnitSwag has come up with a cool new software that allows her to create illustrations in printed knitting. Think of it like graph paper, but it is accurate knit stitches and the image is created with those knit stitches. She takes these designs and puts them on fun stuff like mugs, water bottles, note cards, fabric and more. You can find her shop on Etsy and follow her on Instagram. DISCOUNT CODE: Kelly is offering listeners a discount. Simply use the code UNRAVELING15 for 15% off almost everything in the store. The code is good through May 7, 2020.

I did the #FishLipsKissHeel on my sock yesterday! Now to zoom up the leg and finish this thing. 😎 Are you making interesting milestones in your knitting lately? ⁠ Yarn here is "Whose Sock" in "Thirteenth" colorway, by @purlsasheville Purl's Yarn Emporium in Asheville, NC. (They have it available to order from their website, along with all their other colorways inspired by "Doctor Who.") I'm incorporating the stitch pattern from "Hermione's Everyday Socks" by @dreamsinfiber Erica Lueder, which I absolutely love. My go-to toe is the Medium Wedge Toe from #SockArchitecture by @laraneel Lara Neel. And the heel is the #FishLipsKissHeel by @soxtherapist Patty Joy White.⁠ ⁠ #knitting #knittersofinstagram #🐠👄😚👠
