I am sorting out which project bags to take home for the holidays and the knitting widow is like "Oi Smith, don't think you're bringing all that back. I've already got a house full of your yarn. " I say "But my little lovely it's only six bags" and she's like " Yes six more bags setting off my wool allergy" I guess I will have to sneak them in. Its alright she doesn't read my insta. #theknittingwidow #theknittingman #fairisle #fairisleknitting #strandedknitting #strandedcolorwork #projectbag #knitting
#17. Lazy Sunday, this pattern repeats on 16 stitches and is 13 rows long. #fairisleknitting #ourgifttoyou #knitbyhand #lazysunday www.bakkaknitwear.com Photo of a pattern in Mary Macgregor’s book “Fair Isle Knitting Patterns”.
On the needles: a bit of fairisle knitting. #knitting #knitsofinstagram #knittersofinstagram #fairisleknitting
Getting in some fair isle. @islandyarn’s “Over the River” cowl. It’s a simple chart with smashing results. I’m using @knittingfever’s Ella Rae Cozy Alpaca Chunky and @eisaku_noro’s Kiso for an unusual pairing. This pattern also has a matching hat! Find both patterns on ravelry.com and both yarns at @blissyarns! #knitting #knittersofinstagram #fairisle #fairisleknitting #noroyarn #knittingfever #cowls #chunkyyarn #winterknitting
This is my #bestnine2017 and it’s not a surprise to see some of the designs from my ‘Shetland’ book. It’s been a fabulous year for me and thanks to everyone who has supported me by buying a book or kit, joining my Fairisle Club or coming to one of my workshops. I’m extremely lucky to be able to do my hobby as a way of life and to meet many wonderful knitters from the UK and overseas. Your constant encouragement helps inspire me to design more and more.

Progress. 😬 It might take me the rest of my life, but I *will* finish this sweater! #fairisleknitting #colourworkknitting #knittersofinstagram #knitting #wip #itsgonnatakeforever
Here are soon better photos of my new sweater! I knit it from #lopi Icelandic wool. It's a little scratchy, like wool from years ago before cashmere and Merino took over. It's incredibly thick and warm. I made the specs a bit full. Normally I leave my sleeves a bit short because cuffs tend to get in my way, but for this sweater I wish they were longer. Next time. The Hem hits right at the waist, which is a flattering length to wear with a full skirt. #fairisle #fairisleknitting #knittingmachine #christmassweater #festive #machineknitting #knitting #wool
Done. So cute. 出来上がり。 可愛らしいね〜 #fairisleknitting #fairisle
Holiday stockings are done! The pattern is “Holiday Stockings” by Michele Lee Bernstein, purchased through @knit_picks . I used three skeins of Wool of the Andes Bulky Superwash and one skein of @cascadeyarns 128 Superwash. The pattern is technically fine, but I was a little annoyed that it doesn’t mention on the website that you will have to reduce your rows if you want to use three skeins total for both stockings. It was a surprise to see that on the pattern and is why the 128 ended up in the stockings! I also ran out of white for the second stocking. (I accidentally knit a few extra rows on the toe of the green, but I’m still not sure if I would have had enough yarn had I not done that.) Despite the yarn changes, I’m really happy with how these turned out. So much so that they made it into our holiday photos. Definitely an heirloom to keep around for future holidays. . . . . #knitting #knittersofinstagram #strandedknitting #knitpicks #cascadeyarns #stockings #handmade #fairisleknitting #christmasknitting #handmadeholiday
#wip - pattern is the Christmas in July sweater by #tanisfiberarts and yarn is #ahundredravens Iachos. I used a Rainbow mini set and bits from Fantasia and Tulip mini sets to come up with the rainbow yoke. #christmasinjulysweater #sweater #knitting #rainbow #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitter #knitfaster #knitfastdiewarm #colorwork #strandedknitting #fairisleknitting #yoke #color #memade #handmade #hobbies #workinprogress

About to start creating a gusset thumb. Learning a new skill! On a side note: make sure you read the needles size properly when knitting a project. Using a needles size even larger then asked for makes for a very large mitten! On the positive. It makes things easier to learn! #knitting #knit #fairisleknitting #fairisle #norwegianmittens #craftsy #learning #hobby #enjoyment
Fair isle and charted knitting attempt number one. It’s a challenge, but very worth the extra time it takes. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitlove #fairisle #fairisleknitting
Dusted off the knitting needles, watched a few YouTube videos and got to work making for my almost 3-year-old niece. I’m not one for following patterns but clearly I should’ve read the fine print. This cute little hat might fit a newborn baby. Not bad for my first time trying a simple fair isle stitch. This just means I get to make another one! Have I mentioned how much I love my pom-pom maker? They are addicting! You’ll want to make a ton I promise! 💕 #buttonsandbarbells #knithat #fairisleknitting #pompoms
Peter realizing there seems to be some sort of personal space between us.
Anyone want to hazard a guess as to which bandwagon I've hopped on to? It is, like, the best bandwagon, OMG. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #fairisleknitting #strandedcolorwork #dererumnatura #mysteryyarn
I've made cuffs to match my vintage coat. I put together different patterns from the book '200 Fair Isle Designs' by @mjmucklestone Herringbone tights from @swedishstockings #fairisleknitting #fairislepattern #jamiesonsofshetlandspindrift #jamiesonandsmith2ply #diy #ootd #tights

I’ve just done an Etsy store update and added my Oh Deer cowl in blue and cream. There’s still time for U.K. customers to purchase in time for Christmas.

A #loki #pullover for Margot. She picked the colours. It's knitting up much more quickly than Jude's cabled sweater and I'm fantasizing about pulling all nighters to get it under the tree by #Christmas. #knittingmarathon #hardcoreknitter #fairisleknitting #colourwork #localwool
😍😃 Check out this gorgeous cardi my mum @willowandtwist is knitting for me... I'm so pleased with it so far, it's gonna be a stunner!! P.S I'm sorry I've been neglecting IG, I've been extra poorly but I'm getting back into the swing of things now so expect plenty of stitchy goodness to feast your eyes on soon 😀🌸 #Repost ・・・ A new design for @bobbinandfred A patterned cardigan with a combo in Drops Big Delight and Nepal. . #makersgonnamake #makersgonnashare #cochellastyle #bohostyle #bohofashion #festivalstyle #sunrise #fairisleknitting #fairislefriday #selfstriping #selfstripingyarn #bohemian #festivalclothing #dropsbigdelight #knittedcardigan #knittedjumper #creatorslane #psimadethis #doitfortheprocess #knittinglove #craftastherapy #handmadeclothes

#16. This is definitely our least favourite, I don’t know why, but it does have its uses. What does it remind you of? #fairislepattern #ourgifttoyou #giveandshare #advent www.bakkaknitwear.com
I’m scared of a lot of things in life. Most notable all apex predators (mountain lions and sharks...) and dropping a key stitch in my knitting when I’m thisclose to finishing. So you can only imagine that learning a new technique like creating a steek boggled my mind. But for the love of #fairisleknitting #shetlandwool #jamiesonandsmith2ply I had to teach myself this technique. And I had to muscle up and get the scissors out...and here’s the result!!!! An armhole! And my sweater didn’t unravel. Squuuueeeeee!!!!! Yay to learning something new!!!!
@unclesloppy liked the hat I made for @gomola sooooo much he asked me to make a variation for him. Traditional Latvian patterns representing deities, with a pompom for extra protection, naturally. #fairisle #fairisleknitting #colorwork #knitting #witchcraft
I had an idea and ran with it. No idea where this one will end up. Merino/cashmere #fairisleknitting #cashmere #knittersofinstagram
#fairislefriday #fairisleknitting Cuffs done. Just the buttonband to do on this waistcoat. #menwhoknit
Fair Isle is cool.
