Here's a new design in the making! I'm glad to be a part of @thefibrecompany's indie designer program ✨ I'm working with their amazing yarn #thefibrecocumbria in the colorway Yew Tree. If you are interested in seeing this pullover come together from scratch, I started a mini-series on my YouTube channel where I walk you through my designing process. The first episode is about making submissions and I'm showing you my way of doing it. The link is in my profile, look for the Sweater Chronicles. #onnensweater #tfclovesdesigners #indiedesigner #thefibrecompany #sweaterdesign #youtubeknittingpodcasts #youtubeknitting #youtubeknitter #knittingvlog

I just realized it's been exactly two years since I casted on for my #narwhalsweater . It was my contribution to #fringeandfriendskal2016 and it's been one of my all-time favorite me-made sweaters ever since. To celebrate two years of Narwhal pullovers I am offering the pattern for -20% in my Ravelry store until September 17th (midnight Helsinki time). That's how long it took me to finish the original pullover. No coupon code needed. 🐳🐋 #dropsfan #dropssafran #topdownpullover
I've been struggling with my #summerofbasics projects this summer. First of all, I wasn't anticipating such a heatwave when I made plans about knitting a cardigan-coat. Needless to say, I haven't even started that yet! Secondly, my pile of unfinished projects has steadily been growing during the past year, and I've been starting more things than I've finished. So at the moment I feel like I should focus more on sorting that out than starting yet another project that I'm rushing to finish. There's already a pile of lovely basics in the making in my knitting basket after all ❤️ #knitting #handmadewardrobe #slowfashion #reallyslowfashion #alreadyoverayearinmaking
Say hello to my new scarf! // It still feels like some kind of magic to be able to make a scarf that will keep me warm this fall with just these props: two wooden sticks joined together by a piece of plastic cable, some yarn and my hands! ✨// Quick stop at @snurrelankakauppa yesterday. I wanted to buy #toshmerinolight in the Arya colorway (my favorite!) but came home with Bittersweet instead. I also bought #hedgehogfibresskinnysingles in the Cereal colorway. You might not see in this photo, but these two colorways have the exact same emerald green, rusty brown and plum colored speckles, so I think they are the perfect match!
🌳It almost looks like there is a tree growing inside this house! // A short trip to Helsinki. Spending time with my whole family, for the first time since last September ❤️
Amazing light calls for a impromptu photo shoot ✨ The Dimma clutch pattern is now live on Ravelry, the link is in my bio as usual. And I'm being generous, so the pattern is available for FREE until tomorrow (midnight Helsinki time) with the code "HELLODIMMA". If you are struggling with your #summerofbasics projects, here's a quick little project to get you up to speed!
Good morning! Last night I finished knitting this hat, and it is so soft and I love it! Thank you @woolfolk_yarn for letting me test this new #woolfolkflette yarn, it surely is an instant favorite! ❤️ Also in this photo, a little @tukuwool fade clutch I knitted already in April. I wrote the pattern already back then but I've been so lazy taking photos that I haven't been able to finish it. I should really get my game back together now that the summer holidays are over 🙈
I have been editing my new podcast episode tonight. It's the second part of my July recap episode and I'm talking about this pile of knits here. It should be uploaded very soon (YouTube can be painfully slow at times!) In the meantime you can watch the first part and catch up with everything I did during July, for example visiting the #jyvaskylaknitfestival ✨ Link in my profile as usual! #knittingpodcast #youtubeknittingpodcasts #youtubeknitting #youtubeknitter #knittingvlog
Can't get enough of this yarn! @woolfolk_yarn Flette is just so amazingly soft that I can't put this WIP down! I've been dreaming about a boucle sweater for about a year now, but until now haven't found any yarn that wouldn't contain polyamide or nylon. So I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to notice #woolfolkflette is 100% merino. 🎉 This is becoming a hat but I'm already planning the sweater project in my head 😏
Test knitting for this mohair pullover is now open in my Ravelry group. Find the link in my profile!
Working on patterns today, keep your eyes open for the call for test knitters for this semi-secret shawl 👆 I finished writing the pattern today, now it just needs proof reading before it's ready for test knitting. In the meantime, the 2x2 top-down hat is now available for test knitting, find all the details in my Ravelry group! The link is in my profile!
We are on our way home soon, and I'm surely going to miss these sights. The turquoise Mediterranean Sea never ceases to amaze me nor do I ever get tired of seeing it. So I want to save these moments in my IG feed so I can look back to them when the days get darker and the world becomes winter grey.
