Perfect quiet Friday evening.. for those who don’t know me very well I thrive in peace and quiet; and I would prefer a calm evening at home- including the hubs and I in separate rooms. Solitude is that comforting for me! Yesterday put me in an unco

Frogging the body was the best thing I could have ever done.... not only and I now at perfect gauge but the color change and yarn weight is sooooo much better Emmy has no clue how luck she is... this is a sweet a** sweater (with luxe yarns ) ... #fr
@jojo.tricot Yes!!! I never regret frogging a project!!!! Also, it means more knitting! Hahaha ;) Fabric is looking great! 😘♥️
@rubyandanainstitches @jojo.tricot thank you!! Best part was I got to keep the mohair too!! 😂💕

A little progress today on the #lailasweater ... I find knits so fascinating, in how all throughout the ribbing I questioned; is that right, is that big enough?... and now into the main body, YUP- definitely big enough anyways, thoroughly enjoying t
@katsvisualdiary Love knitting jumpers!! Kidsilk mohair is suchhhh a stunning fiber!
@rubyandanainstitches @katsvisualdiary uggghhhh I know right?!- I want to add it to EVERYTHING 😍😍
Hubs is seriously the best... after chasing around the little one all day with my parents he’s letting me completely chill on the couch to rest and recoup... so I’m using the time well spent while working on a @jojo.tricot knit! #fringefieldbag #fri
@fild_pieces I like it!

New week with a new project! I’m participating in @mohrlivingmama KAL and I’m honestly pleasantly surprised with this pattern. At first blush I wasn’t sure if these mitts are for me but they are perfect! They are my second pair of mitts that I’veBrooklyn, New York
@mohrlivingmama Just gorgeous my friend 😍😍😍

Fun facts: • This scarf started out of the fact that I wanted this long luxurious simple scarf that I knew I wasn’t going to find (what I truly wanted) in a store. • I’ve never measured it so I couldn’t tell you how long it actually is... but I did b

Very few months I find some time to work on this simple stockinette scarf. I started this about 2, maybe 3 (!!!) years ago and only seem to be able to work a dozen or so rows before I get bored or my hands get tired that I set it to the side. At fi
@mohrlivingmama I love some simple knitting! Easy to watch some tv with 🙌🏻
@rubyandanainstitches @mohrlivingmama so true! Ironically this isn’t the mindless tv knitting, I have 2 of those for home! 😂😂
Ok so I didn’t QUITE finish yesterday as I had hoped but should be done by tomorrow evening! I just started on the crown decreases after adding a little extra length to the body of the hat... I chose to make the adult S/M size as I felt the circumfe

@blazingneedles It's looking so good
I accidentally knocked over a glass of red wine right into my #fringeporterbin and for a bit I wasn’t sure if I was sad over losing the glass (a fav), spilling the wine, or spilling the wine over a whole sweaters worth of yarn.... I miss my wine ....Brooklyn, New York
@rubyandanainstitches @ep_nyc I know....💔
They need a good blocking but these bad gals are done!! I redid the thumbs enough to learn that I kinda hate thumbs more than sleeves and I’m on the fence about redoing one of them for the third time; we will see.... but on to the next stash busting
Shortly after I took this photo I finished up the thumb; but unfortunately I was about 2 rows short and it’s a little too small! I don’t have the proper assortment of tools with me to fix this on my way home so I’ll have to take it out later tonightTimes Square, New York City
A good friend of mine (ahem.. @mrsnicolepotter ) got me into knitting a few rows while I had lunch as a way to reset for the afternoon... todays time got me several rows into the cabling on my #stonewoolaudrey mitts and I am sooo in love I cast on th
@wearefiberly Love it! They look fantastic. I love fast little knits like this. Have you ever done any test knitting? Your work looks so nice, I thought you might be interested in learning about it. If you have never done test knitting before, you can get free patterns and yarn in exchange for knitting new, unpublished patterns for designers to catch errors. It’s super fun. I'm working on a new platform to help you connect with designers for test knitting projects. DM me if you are interested!
@rubyandanainstitches @wearefiberly thank you! Sending you a message now!!!
With the exception of 2 projects that cannot leave home I’m once again all caught up on current WIPS! That being said I have been able to pull out this number which has been on my needles for a few years... it is meant to be a lovely fine gauge jers
@peacelovejoyeveryday I love my bamboo needles
@rubyandanainstitches @peacelovejoyeveryday me too! But I am also a fan of metal one for certain projects... unfortunately this yarn is so slippery metal needles was a bad choice, I’m shocked I’ve made it as far as I have! 😂
I still have a lot; and I mean I LOT of yarn leftover that I didn’t use in baby girls blanket and subsequently in her #pintsizedpenguono that I decided to use up some of the smaller scraps in a fun little beanie. Meet Every Last Scrappy! Even afterBay Ridge Brooklyn

@little.larkspur.designs Hi Christine! Nice to meet you 😊 I'll have to check out your blog. I have a serious sweet tooth for chocolate too!!! Maybe that's why brown is your favorite color?? Haha!
@rubyandanainstitches @littlelarkspurdesigns I’ve never thought of that, the choco and brown connection! 🤔🤔

@craftknitsew @rubyandanainstitches yes, thanks!! I started on a set of welts with only one loop and it looked a bit dangly. Decided to frog and up my gauge (lower? Use bigger needles, i mean) so will try with both on the next go round.
@rubyandanainstitches @craftknitsew go for it! What I love about this pattern is the freedom to use what gauge is needed to get the look you want! Have fun!
