shockwaves kal

Are you in a knit-along mood? We are hosting one for my newest pattern! It's called Shockwaves and you can download it for free on the website or on Ravelry.

The KAL officially starts July 1st, but you are welcome to start earlier than that. We have a dedicated thread in our Ravelry group. And there will be prize draws! For more info, visit Shockwaves KAL thread on Ravlery as mentioned before.

Shockwaves is a extra large generous shlanket size wrap, and you'll need 4 skeins of HHF Skinny Singles in 4 colours. Yes they are sold out in our shop, but have you seen our retailer list? We now have over 100 retailers worldwide and Skinny Singles is a popular base that's widely available. I did a convenient google search if you'd like to browse online stores that carry this base.

scarfy thing

Scarfy Thing is finished! I improvised this design using 2 full skeins of HHF Sock Yarn (Bramble and Zephyr) and 11 Sock Minis (I  have listed them on my project page here). It was a fun knit! I casted on somewhere in the middle and then added on section in different directions. I have put together a 'recipe' - it's not a row by row pattern more like a collection of knitting tips, you can find it here.

Here again (like my Penguono) I used my rule of combining colours without looking like a circus rainbow: use all the colours of the rainbow but eliminate at least one. I didn't use (almost)any green in this scarf, there's a Boombox Mini used that has some green in it, but overall - no green.)

briochevron scarf

This was so much fun to knit! I'm now officially addicted to brioche. I love how the colours mix and mingle, the fabric is beautiful, thick, squishy and luscious. And reversible! What not to love? Brioche really has it all. Pattern by Stephen West available through Ravelry. I have made a few minor modifications, click below to read more!

mohair penguono

What a relief. It's perfect! The size is great and the mohair is as light as a feather. The pattern is Penguono by Stephen West and I've used Hedgehog Fibres Kidsilk Lace held triple on 4mm needles. Here and there I used some Twist Sock and some Singles as I didn't have enough colours of the Kidsilk.

 Who has enough colours ever? I like to just keep adding more. If a section looks weird, just add more colours, it'll all work out!
