I’m feeling owned by my possessions at the moment, which is part of why I’m finishing such well-aged UFOs. 🐙 This project originally hit a wall because there are SO MANY faux cables. After doing the bobbles on my Bobbie Top with a crochet hook, I had a lightbulb moment: I could put a Tunisian crochet hook on one end of a circular needle, and a regular knitting needle on the other. 🐙 (I’m reasonably certain that @SkacelKnitting made something like this, circa 2000.) 🐙 Pattern: Spectral by Debbi Stone, Yarn: Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga! 🐙 #bipocknitters #knitting #BIPOCMaker #KnittersOfInstagram #IndieDyersOfInstagram #KnitmoregirlsPodcast #ProjectSweaterChest #handknit #couture #Bespoke #CacheDash2022 #TeamCuteknitter #BeatBostonJen 🐙 [Image Description: A twisted stitch cowl knit in a purple gradient, looped around an @ErinLaneBags project bag.]

We’re back home from the ̶g̶e̶r̶m̶i̶e̶s̶t̶ happiest place on earth. 🏰 It was the kids’ first time, and they had a blast. We rode the rides, ate the food, and the kids were exposed to Verne, the grumpy old man who lives in my head. He told them all about the evils of merchandising; and that’s why we do ONE special thing each. 🏰 You can see our masks; unfortunately, we only saw about a dozen other folx wearing them. So, we’re quarantining for a few days to make sure we don’t spread any contagious souvenirs that we may have picked up. 🏰 #Disney #Disneyland 🏰 [Image Description: from left to right: The cutest multiracial boy in the world with the sparkly eyes brown eyes and flowing locks; a stunning multiracial little girl with olive skin, long dark hair, glasses, and the most devious dimples you’ve ever seen; a striking, freckled and fair-skinned Iranian American woman with bright turquoise hair; and a tall, bald, white man with a greying Van Dyke beard. They are all smiling in front of the Mickey Mouse lawn at the entrance of Disneyland.] to line break

Someone told Rex that he looks like a nerd in his glasses. 👓 Obviously, he looks like the cutest, most capable, smartest scientist in the world. (We were playing a Godzilla imagination game last night, obviously, his character was the “most capable and smartest scientist in the world”, per Genevieve’s casting choices.) 👓 Feel free to let Rex know how he looks in his glasses, we’ll read all of the comments together. 👓 #Godzilla #ImaginationPlay #Glasses #AntiBullying 👓 [Image Description: The cutest boy in the world with the sparkly eyes brown eyes and flowing locks (multi racial) is sporting a sharp pair of dark blue and red squarish framed glasses, an enormous grin, and holiday pajamas.] to line break

@littleSkeinAnne: Are you sure it’s not too bright? We can add some grey. Me: Oh, it’s juuuuuuust right. ☀️ We had an amazing time, bringing the Knitmore chaos to the Little Skein in the Big Wool creative space. It did all of our raging extrovert hearts good to be with friends. ☀️ [The yarn is sport weight linen and silk, in a custom, non-repeatable color by yours truly, guided by the incredibly skilled Anne. The tattoo is a design originally by @DawnKathrynStudios, modified and executed by the incredibly talented @BabyDoll_TT.] ☀️ You can hear all about this project, and all the others on The Knitmore Girls Podcast, available on all of your favorite audio platforms. ☀️ #bipocknitters #knitting #BIPOCMaker #KnittersOfInstagram #IndieDyersOfInstagram #KnitmoregirlsPodcast #ProjectSweaterChest #handknit #couture #Bespoke #CacheDash2022 #LittleSkein #LittleSkeinInTheBigWool #TeamCuteknitter #BeatBostonJen ☀️ [Image Description: A fair-skinned Iranian American woman’s left forearm with a tattoo of a skein of yarn in the shape of California, with a pair of knitting needles and a crochet hook poked through it.

There is a pot beneath, with yarn the same color as the California poppies on the tattoo.]

Ah, remember the KidSilk Haze craze of 2008? 🐐 Here’s my ice queen, nearly finished. Thanks, Past Jasmin for leaving notes with the project. 🐐 [Pattern: Ice Queen by @RomiDesigns, Yarn: KidSilk Haze, Beads: @swarovski crystals] 🐐 Oh, and since it’s fuschia, I’ll add that abortion is healthcare. Every child should be wanted. Kids are people, they shouldn’t be treated as a consequence or punishment. 🐐 #bipocknitters #knitting #BIPOCMaker #KnittersOfInstagram #KnitmoregirlsPodcast #ProjectSweaterChest #handknit #couture #bespoke #Knitty #Craftivist #Craftivism #KnittedLace #LaceKnittersOfInstagram #DesignsByRomi #StashDash2022 #TeamCuteknitter #BeatBostonJen 🐐 [Image Description: a fuschia cowl in progress, with a contrasting provisional cast on, spread over black pants to highlight the lacework. ]
