I’m so pleased with how this colour combo is playing together. When I got the neon green/yellow variegated in the classics society it was one of those skeins I loved but really wasn’t sure what to do with. Bonus - the teal is from such a deep layer of stash I can’t even remember when I got it... #deepstash#shawlknitting
I think my blanket has grown out of its bag. 😁 Could I use a Santa sack for a project bag? 😂 Maybe it is time to drape it over the sofa when I am not knitting on it... How do you store large long term projects? #knitting#blanketknitting
Last night at my first #knittingtherapy since football regular season ended, I finished knitting the blue #yipyip. The fringe is at his waist so he can sit at a table more easily. Now to add the eyes and antennas... The is from @jennymadeitall’s

When you've got to be at work WAY TOO EARLY to let a painter in to touch up the walls 😲, but you've got your favorite t-shirt and a cozy cowl to bring a little smile to your face. #knitter#makervalley Pattern: Hurricane Ridge by Raveling Rose Yarns Yarn: from
I am a bit behind on my test knit for @thesweatercollective but I think I am finally getting the hang of this. New stitch markers are making it extra fun. 😊 It’s the little things...... 👌 #knitting#thesweatercollective
New week, new spin! (But deep stash!) This is #southerncrossfibre in Distant Thunder on Corriedale. It was a 2013 club colorway and I’m psyched because not only is it gorgeous, it’s Corriedale which I think makes the perfect handspun socks! This one will be up in the shop when I’m done if you need a pair of handspun socks for your cold feet. #spinnersofinstagram
One more detail about the #sewfrosting dress I posted previously. The dupioni I used had a fringy selvedge - something I wanted to incorporate somehow when I got around to using this piece. On this dress it wouldn’t fit in with the rest of the look on the outside, so I kept the fringe inside where I could still see it. To accommodate a lapped zipper (see 2nd pic for finished result), I always increase the center back seam allowance on my patterns to 1 inch, plenty of room to cut the center back on the selvedge edge and keep ...
Four #patternpieces + #fabricstash silk + = belated . I missed the deadline for the Sew Frosting challenge - I knew it would be a stretch for me to finish in time - but still was inspired to participate. Thank you @closetcase.patterns and @truebias for the nudge to make something frivolous! . The bodice is a “fringe” of red and antique gold colored threads embroidered onto silk organza. The dress body is antique gold silk dupioni. Silk organza underlines the full dress. The body is unlined and the seams are wrapped in organza with a narrow Hong Kong ...
Here's the oldest yarn in my stash - Old Maiden Aunt in Brass Taps & Oak. It's also my first ever indie yarn. @craftylittlerat is making 2019 the year of deep stash knitting, so perhaps I'll find a pattern good enough for these beauties, and join in! #deepstash#myprecious
Since the week of Thanksgiving, it’s been a roller coaster of illness around here. My husband’s illness, mostly, but I caught a bad case of insomnia during his gastrointestinal malady. During it all, during the looong hours of wakefulness, I’ve been test knitting a shawl pattern for Fran Carle, @theinkyknitter. It’s an addicting knit! I’m on the downhill side to finishing it, so I hope to show the whole shawl soon. The yarn is from deep stash, called Julia by Nashua, and is discontinued. So, this pattern, which is planned according to percentages, has been great for the ...
#2019aussiedyersockalong Yep I’m already planning my 2019 knits schedule as these #kal really work for me! Plus I’m always happy to support local dyers, & to continue on the theme, I’m going to use patterns from Aussie designers too! Looking forward to this ! All available dyers tagged!!
Felt like spinning something colorful the other day, so from the depths of #deepstash, I pulled out this #sweetgeorgiayarns 6-pack of panda fiber. I think I can finally get a passable sock yarn, but don’t want to get too cocky 😜
Doing some deep stash diving and winding tonight for future weaving projects. 〰️ These two combos will become colour blocked scarves I’m planning on weaving up on my rigid heddle loom. The first pic is a skein of @ancientartsyarn Mineral I’ve had since 2012 🙈and the second is another Ancient Arts sock in Frolic that I’ve probably had since 2013 😬. The beige and navy? No idea 🤷🏻♀️🤣 〰️ The sad truth is I’m in a bit of a knitting funk these days - none of my projects feel ‘fun’ to knit and I’m not under any Xmas gift knitting ...
One hat done, one more cast on. Why do I keep agreeing to make matching hats? I have to do one more pink/grey, one more green cables and one more of these teal cables. It’s turning out to be the year of the hat around here. At least I’m powering through some epically old stash... #deepstash#stashdiving
I was determined to start using up some of my deep DEEP stash and found this combo. I'm knitting a really retro version of Vintersol and I love it so much! The bonus is that worsted weight knits up so fast compared to the fingering weight I've been using so much of lately. #vintersolsweater#knitlovewool
Knitting out of deep, deep stash. In fact, this might be the first yarn I bought after I learned to knit in the early 2000s. Pattern: Slip Stitch Stash Hat. Yarn: sirdar country style DK. #knittersofinstagram#knitstagram
New project! I was swatching with different yarns and this was the combo that my daughter asked for. So soft and squishy. I am making another #nofrillssweater with one strand white serious deep stash yarn and one strand of charcoal gray fluff. Love the marled effect!! #deepstash
In this chest from Nantucket are my oldest deepest stash cross stitch charts and kits. I can honestly say I didn’t look at any of them and say, what was I thinking? Trying to figure out where the old Mary Beale charts are started the hunt. #deepstash#nantucket
Saturday morning Kitchener and they’re off the needles and onto my feet! Still love @mountaincolorsyarn even with all the newer dyers. They really know sock yarn and dyeing! Not a “pool” in the pair! #socks#handknitsocks
She turned two a month ago but I finally finished her birthday sweater! This is the delightful Garden Gnome Hoodie by @knittingexpat and I love it. I hope this will fit her for a few years; she's quite petite so I'm hopeful it will. Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in the colorway Taureg that I got at @harmonyprovo , and some (deep stash) white acrylic. I picked a BYU blue and snapped this pic at the football stadium. 🏈 🏈 #gardengnomehoodie#knittingexpatdesigns
WAAAAAAY BACK in 2013 I bought this 12ply Rustic from @bendigowoollenmills. 4 balls is heaps, I thought. Then they discontinued it, and it was suddenly elevated to ‘precious’ status. I wish they’d bring it back permanently. I’ve just bought the cowl pattern Whitefish Ripples by Faye Kennington @ukeeknits who is currently offering a discount on Ravelry (you’d better hurry though). I think it’s precious-worthy. . . #myprecious#bwm
And another garment finished! This is Merle by @savoryknitting knitted in @rohrspatzundwollmeise Pure in Moses colour. Its also another one ticked off my knitting make nine list. It’s good to get this yarn used as it’s very deep stash! It’s a little warm to be wearing it today but I don’t care 😄 #knit1000g2018#iamarealknitter
Took 3 weeks to knit, another 3 weeks to seam 😂😅 just got distracted.. took another 4 days to dry!! ‘Painted Pullover’ by Amy Palmer of @berrocoyarn is finished & is perfect for the weather still!! And I just 💜💜💜 @missclickclack yarn in this!! Miss Click Clack Darling Rd DK Merino in Turkish Delight . And can participate in @dynamitetrujillo #autumnandsweaters though it’s really #springandsweaters here 😆
Deep stash. There is even a date of 2013 on one 🙈 I have no idea what I’d planned for these now so I’m looking for pattern ideas for one or both. I have a queue at the moment but perhaps one should jump the queue. Help 🤔 #deepstash#personalstash
