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 uncomfortable funk that carried into today but thanks to hubs who let me roam and shop for baby girl for a few hours this afternoon (she’s grown out of her clothes sooooo fast!) and giving me a little space tonight to knit... and an extra special squeeze to one adorbs girlie who was out like a light in no time; momma win!  Pictured is my #ursasweater by @jacquelinecieslak which I am quickly approaching the hem of the body; my #fringefieldbag from @fringesupplyco and some super delicious gin called The Botanist @thebotanistgin .... a few more rows than it’s lights out for the evening... #rubyandanainstitches #rubyandana #ursasweater #farmersdaughterfibers #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #knitfaster #mustknitfaster #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionrevolution  #knittersofbrooklyn #brooklynknitter

@rubyandanainstitches @mohrlivingmama thank you!!! Ugh I know... I’ve loved knitting these but now I want to move on! 😂🤦🏼‍♀️ so close to being done!

@rubyandanainstitches @knitrino this photo doesn’t do the color justice either! It’s such a beautiful maroon

While I still have some WIP’s to finish I really feel the need to start something new.... so i#while@i was waiting to purchase this lovely pattern I decided that this weekend was the right time to start!  I’ll my other WIP’s have been more long term so I feel comfortable setting them aside for something new.  So cheers to the weekend! 🧶  #ursasweater #jacquelinecieslak #rubyandanainstitches #rubyandana

I was so excited to continue on some of my other on going projects that I quickly cast on the second mitt from my #mohrlivingkal (yes it’s still going and YES I’m going to finish, DUH) without thinking about the fact that I would be working with itty bitty needles... oops... well I’m still determined to finish these and my chunky sweater from months ago before purchasing and committing to my planned #ursasweater ... 🥰🥰 feeling all sorts of yarn love  #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #knitfaster #mustknitfaster #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionrevolution  #knittersofbrooklyn #brooklynknitter #atimetoreapmitts

I’ve finally completed my knitting commitments so I’m back at it on some of my more leisurely, non deadline knits!  While I throughly enjoyed working on my last two projects (of which only one I was able to post here... #nospoilers!) it is refreshing to know that I will now be working on pieces that I could set aside and revisit at another time if I become frustrated/ “bored”, etc... so pictures here is my #larchsweater in @sawkillfarm yarn... it’s been a sec my friend, and I’m so happy to see you again ️🥰🧶 #rubyandanainstitches #rubyandana #quinceandco #quinceplainandsimple #larch #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #knitfaster #mustknitfaster #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionrevolution #brooklynknitter #knittersofbrooklyn

I’m a bit farther along now than what is in this photo but soooo happy  this time and raglan is progressing!  I unfortunately lost my second (gasp!) game of yarn chicken on this project but at the perfect time- right after the yoke set up row- meaning that only the yoke will have no mohair.  The color there is richer and a bit more intense than compares to the sleeve.  I love how for me this became more than a test knit but a study in color... 🧶 #jojotricot #lailasweater #rubyandanainstitches #rubyandana #gimmealltheyarn #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #cantstopwontstop #knitfaster #mustknitfaster #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionrevolution #brooklynknitter #knittersofbrooklyn @jojo.tricot #owoollocal #thefarmersdaughterfibers #primroseyarnco #yarnchicken

@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 this test knit so far!

I just couldn’t resist and wound these pretty babes up last night to start some searching!  I desperately want to cast on for the #ursasweater but not sure these yarns will reach the pattern gauge (I’m aiming for a slightly softer and drapier look); hence the swatching!  That and I have heard so many amazing things about @thefarmersdaughterfibers and just HAD to see for myself!  Look for my next posts on how my planned swatches in these yarns turn out! 🧶 #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #brooklyngeneralstore #gimmealltheyarn #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #cantstopwontstop #knitfaster #mustknitfaster #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionrevolution #brooklynknitter

@raglineknits Nice 👍

This is not the best photo (but does it have to be?!) however I finally got the opportunity to check out @brooklyngeneralstore yesterday and IM IN LOVE 🥰 . It’s a tiny bit out of the way for me to get to (with a toddler and stroller) however it is soooo worth it.  They are the only store in NYC that carry one (actually two!) brands of yarn I have been anxious to knit with but didn’t want to purchase online without having seen first in case I wasn’t crazy about them.... I only intended to get one maybe two skeins yesterday to swatch with but of course 4 ended up in my hands along with a ruler bracelet and new enamel pin... I can’t wait to go back once my swatches are finished in hopes to buy a sweaters worth of yarn! 🧶 @thefarmersdaughterfibers @yarnonthehouse @ritualdyes #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #brooklyngeneralstore #gimmealltheyarn #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #cantstopwontstop #knitfaster #mustknitfaster #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionrevolution #brooklynknitter

@mohrlivingmama @rubyandanainstitches haha no worries 💗

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’ve made (I’m disregarding a pair made years ago when I was still learning 🤷‍️) and I’m really enjoying the process so far.  This yarn has been a dream to work with too; it’s Sophia from @primroseyarnco and I am for sure going to do more with their yarns!  Stay posted on my progress as it looks like I may be flying through this project... ️ 🧶

When at home I’ve been working on this cozy bulky sweater.  I’m referencing 2 existing patterns (from others) to try and get the look I want but along the way have split the body for front and back so I had to rip back then just last night I sealed the shoulders, tried it on and realized I seamed the hem instead of the shoulders.... that was my cue to go to sleep so this morning we’re taking it slow with babygirl eating her morning snacks and a little YouTube kids while I sip some tea and see the CORRECT should seams; just a small neckband and some sleeves left to go!! #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #greyonblackonblack #cityuniform #citywardrobe #gimmealltheyarn #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #cantstopwontstop #knitfaster #mustknitfaster #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionrevolution

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 buy out some of the last skeins of this color (it’s discontinued I believe) and plan to keep going until I hit the length I want • My field bag is currently housing the almost end of my latest skein, a half started swatch, coffee and just out of sight, random sea shells  from my beach trip on my birthday last summer... Happy Friday and happy knitting!

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 first I would get frustrated that I had this WIP sitting around but now I sit comfortably with the idea that I have this simple mindless project to work on.  So until I start @mohrlivingmama ‘s KAL starts April 1st this is my go-to commuter project! #rubyandanainstitches #purlsoholineweight #rubyandana #greyonblackonblack #cityuniform #citywardrobe #gimmealltheyarn #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #cantstopwontstop #knitfaster #mustknitfaster #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionrevolution

@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 circumference would better suit me over the L/XL however that means it’s a very fitted; almost “short” hat for me- so a little extra length was called for!  This shifts the bobble pattern however it does not seem to be a big deal.

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 .... #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #ohshit #wheresthewine

@ep_nyc Noooooooo

@rubyandanainstitches @ep_nyc I know....💔

Since I finished up my #stonewoolaudrey mitts I’m already prepped to start my next project using a pattern and yarns I’ve had in my stash!  More #owoollocal and my first ever skein of #primroseyarnco to make up my version of @boylandknitworks #kobukhat ... very very excited to see how these yarns knit up together...🤩🤩 in the meantime I’m also getting a few rows at a time on a spur of the moment stash busting sweater... no pattern; just flying by the seat of my pants! ‍️🧶🧶 #gimmealltheyarn #primroseplume #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #myboylandknit

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 project! #stonewoolaudrey #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting #filtered

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 tonight... other than that I looove this little mitt!! It’s mate will be started on the commute home... 🧶🥰🥰 #stonewoolaudrey #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting

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 the first mitt last night and have a feeling these will be done by the weekend!  I am using #owoollocal which is giving these cables a squishy bounce and of course and will keep me nice toasty warm... #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram #nevernotknitting

@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 jersey roll scarf.  There is no pattern and I’m pretty much knitting until I’m happy with the length.  My last few subways rides have gotten me a couple rows progress but honestly this is a slow moving project... and I think I may need to switch to wooden needles- I can’t even tell you how many times these metal ones have slipped from my fingers! 🤦‍️ oh well... well happy Wednesday world!   #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #ravelryknittersofinstagram #ravelryknitter #ravelry #filtered #nevernotknitting #trainknitter #trainknitting #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #cantstopwontstop #purlsohobusyhands #purlsohoyarn #purlsoholineweight

@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 after frogging this once this little piece only took about 4 hours start to finish!  In all I used up the remains of 3 skeins along with making a dent in about 3 others.  I will be writing and releasing this pattern within the next two weeks in its current size and adding on additional sizes at a later date.  Now let’s hope baby girl will want to keep it on her head.... 🧶🤷‍️ #everylastscrappy #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #knittersofravelry #knitterslife #knittersgonnaknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #nevernotknitting #filtered #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelryknittersofinstagram

Finally have gotten around to doing more work on my littles #pintsizedpenguono on my ride into the city this morning.. I have the second front panel done and managed to make the shoulder panels over my lunch break!

If you go back to some of my posts around the holidays you’ll see my mention of a knee injury.  I suffered from patella syndrome which had me on a cane and hobbling around for weeks.  The o lay positive thing that occurred from this was how much knitting time I got out of it!  But anyways... I have been in PT rebuilding the strength in my knee and am being discharged this week following the success of completing a few yoga classes and I’ve finally worked up enough courage to go on my first run in 3 months!  This is also very exciting news as I am going to cross another bucket list goal of mine.... April 14 I will be running in the SHAPE women’s HALF MARATHON. ‍️ wish me luck and to keep myself accountable I will share my progress here on my knitting feed as well as on my private account.... here we GOOOO!!! #runrunmomma #nyrr #rubyandanainstitches #rubyandana #rubyandanaruns

Hi there!!  popping in to say hello as there are some new faces out there following my feed!  I don’t believe I’ve ever actually shared a selfie here since starting this account last year so this feels very overdue.... my name is Christine, and I am the maker behind Ruby and Ana in Stitches which if you didn’t know if also a blog and Etsy shop!  I am first and foremost MOM to a spunky vivacious little girl  and wife to a wonderful hubs... Daytime I am also a manager for a women’s wear design team and in the evenings I am an avid knitter.  My background is in women’s wear design but since catching the knitting bug I hope to venture into my own pattern writing for knitwear.  Some fun facts for you...
1) I love to run and to date have completed the NYRR Mini 10k 3 times; I hope to show my little girl thru this how strong is women are ‍️and this momma also loves her yoga! 
2) my hubby and I are total opposites; it’s true- opposites attract!  He’s basically a woodsman stuck in an urban concrete jungle
3) my favorite color is brown... I couldn’t tell you why
4) I live for days spent on a beach... sun sand and waves  please!
And finally..
5) if I see a piece of chocolate... don’t even think about standing in my way!  Thank you for joining me on this yarn journey, I hope these photos and knits bring you as much joy as they do to me... 🧶 #rubyandanainstitches #rubyandana

@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! 🤔🤔

I have been very excited to post this piece for quite some time... my finished #quincemasala shawl!  A year in the making I cast this off with great flare early last November.  Yarn again is a favorite from @owool and of course cannot quite catch the beautiful color of this pink! It’s such a great piece to bundle up in or crawl under to keep warm.... *

Next up is my #balsam cowl!  I finished this over the Thanksgiving holiday and pretty much haven’t taken it off since!  I really tried to capture the beautiful color of the wool but a photo isn’t doing it justice.... it is such a warm dusty pink and it’s hand is just so so soft... @owool is becoming one of my favorite brands to knit with!

I’m realizing I never posted several of my knits from the end of the year!  This blanket was the only gifted knit that I made for Christmas this year... it’s a toddler bed sized blanket for my daughters bed.  I finished it on Christmas eve and added the oversized poms last night- it was a simple knit worked entirely in garter but it lets the yarn shine!  Worked with wool/ alpaca blend yarn and recycled fabric... *

To all of you attending #vogueknittinglivenyc this weekend enjoy!! I had been on the fence whether I could make it but then a nasty bug of some kind knocked me on my a$$ for the last 2 days...🤧🤢 so I will just have to make sure I go next year!  That being said I was fortunate my mom was staying in town with us so she took charge with our little one I I hid (seriously I hid, little one has been especially all about me at the moment) in our bedroom recuperating and after regaining some strength got to do some knitting today!  I have the first front panel done and hope to work on the left side this week... it for now it’s time to set aside for a few days while I work on my first selfish piece of the year.. #westknitsarethebestknits #westknits #westknittersofinstagram #rubyandanainstitches #rubyandana #pintsizedpenguono #penguono #knitting #knitters #knittersofinstagram #knittersofravelry #knitterlife #knittersgonnaknit #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelry

My newest subway knit is a pair of simple socks for my hubby’s birthday... I have less than a month to finish but this pattern is always quick, and feels quicker when you do two-at-a-time!!

I’ve made one change in how many and how think the stripe appear at the cuff as I’ve made these for my hubs before (as is!!) and wanted him to have a slightly different pair.  It’s such a great pattern that I’ve adopted some of the techniques into simple socks for me as well (looking at that reinforced heel!!) can’t wait to finish these up!! 🧶is @patons Patons Kroy sock yarn held doubled to make gauge @purlsohobusyhands #purlsohobusyhands #menssocksforgivingaway #rubyandana #rubyandanainstiches #knitting #knitters #knittersofinstagram #knittersofravelry #knitterlife #knittersgonnaknit #ravelry #ravelryknitter #ravelry #instaknit #instaknitters #instaknitting #trainknitter #subwayknitter #subwayknitting

@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!

Someone let me finish up the border on my Penguono 2.0 this morning! I had intended to finish this while I was on my vacation over the holidays but we were having too much fun! 1st round of finished photos coming shortly! #westknittersofinstagram #

Penguono 2.0 work this morning during Saturday morning movie time... I still am trying to finish this by the end of the year; I have both sleeves started and could have finished over this weekend, after that just the collar, bottom and I-cord finish!  Almost there!! 🧶️

Train knitting at its finest this morning... ironically the bum knee took up more space than my knitting! 🧶🧶 #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #subwayknitter #subwayknitting

Baby girl and I had an exciting day out yesterday but it did a number on my knee.... inflamed and pretty much frozen I’m propped up on the couch with endless coffee and my knitting.... 🧶🧶 #rubyandana #rubyandanainstitches #gimmeallthecoffee #balsamcowl #plainandsimplebook #pamallen #francanyc  @franca_nyc

I can’t even fully express what I feel right now as I FINALLY begin casting off this beast of a shawl.  It haze been a YEAR in the making and I have been determined to have it done before the end of this year.  This was one of those projects where the first handful of rows flew by but then I hit a major wall and it I would only knit a few stitches sporadically over several months.  About late spring I picked this up again in an effort to finish many of my WIPS.  While it’s going to take me a bit to fully cast this off I am feeling that great relief and much emotion that comes with a FO.... watch for pretty pics coming in the next few weeks!! 🧶🤗 #rubyandanainstitches #rubyandana #knitterscorner #knittersoftheworld #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #instaknit #instaknitters #makersgonnamake #knittersgonnaknit #subwayknitter#subwayknitting #NYCsubwayknitter #ravelry #quincemasala #masalashawl #owool #quinceandco #knittersofravelry #ravelryknitters

Even with all the yarn I purchased this weekend I just had to run out to @michaelsstores to grab a couple of extra skeins of @filaturadicrosa ... after seeing a recent post from @purlsoho and their recent blanket pattern/ kit,it inspired me to restart baby girls new blanket!  So while I am still recycling our old sheets in this project I’ve completely restructured the yarn/ colorblocking!  So excited to share my progress on this inspired project! : as always in profile *
