Are you finding yourself with extra time to knit? I’d love to knit with you, and since I can’t actually join you in person, the next best thing is to give you Knitting Daddy patterns to knit. I just updated my Ravelry shop to put all of my patterns on sale with a 100% discount. There is no coupon code required, just go check out Knitting Daddy’s Ravelry Store (link in profile) and pick whatever patterns you want. Add them to your cart, and they will all be free when you go to check out. Of course, the #TigerOwlCowl that I designed for the #CarolinaFiberFest is still free, so go get that one, too.⁠ ⁠ If you were inclined to purchase one of my patterns, please go check out out some of the other indie designers and purchase their patterns with the money you would have spent on mine.⁠ ⁠ #knitting #knittersofinstagram

There is a lot of staying home happening lately. So it was pretty cool when yarn just showed up at my door this week, like it does every month. Red is a favorite color, and it put a smile on my face when I saw the La Brebis Light Alpaca (100% Baby Alpaca, Fingering Weight) in the Dogwood Berry colorway. When I picked the yarn up and felt how soft and dreamy it was, I gasped. I think this is going to be a fun yarn to work with, and I might even have a few ideas of what I might do with it if I don't knit the included patterns (designed by Renate Kamm).⁠ ——⁠ Knitcrate is a premium yarn subscription service.

I've been working from home this week (my whole company has). One of the side effects has been that a lot of things I did that used to be quick in-person conversations are turning into phone calls and online meetings. A side effect is that I'm getting more available time to knit. My socks have been in unofficial hibernation for a while, mostly because I hadn't taken the time to cast on the toe and get going. I took care of that one evening early in the week and have been making steady progress all week long. The foot is almost halfway complete! As the weeks ahead unfold, I suspect I won't be returning to the office anytime soon and that I will have a decent amount of phone/meeting knitting in my future. That's great, because I also have a pile of sock yarn that I really want to turn into socks!⁠ ⁠ 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 I haven't got there on the second sock yet, but when I do, the heel will be the #FishLipsKissHeel by @soxtherapist Patty Joy White.⁠ ⁠ #knitting #knittersofinstagram #🐠👄😚👠

Things are in an upheaval everywhere, including in our knitting world. This last weekend, I was really excited about attending the #CarolinaFiberFest — I designed the knit-a-long pattern for the event, I was scheduled to speak with @pammaher about Elizabeth Zimmermann, and I was generally excited to be with my fiber friends for the weekend. Of course, the event was cancelled. While it’s disappointing, I fully support the decision and think it’s exactly what needed to be done in order to help manage the COVID-19 threat. In preparation for the Zimmermann talk, I made a mad dash to knit a Baby Surprise Jacket in about a week, so Pam and I would have an unseamed example to use as a prop. I finished it Thursday morning and love how it came out. I’m going to keep it like it is so that we’ve got a ready prop for the next time we give our talk. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #babysurprisejacket #bsj #UnravelingPodcast

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

For shop owners, our easy to use interface makes selling online easy. FiberCrafty is owned by one woman that has a crazy love of yarn and knitting. Greg’s favorite feature? Pants are optional. Shop for your next project at FiberCrafty.
