Beautiful Projects – Knitworthy 1

by ysoldateague September 08, 2015


As you’ve all hopefully seen Knitworthy 2 has begun! Although I realise working for Ysolda makes me a little biased, I am incredibly excited about this as without last year’s Knitworthy no-one in my family would have got any Christmas presents. I managed to make six of the eight projects but started gifting them before all the patterns had been released so I wasn’t able to gather all my knitworthy projects together. Some people did though, and the resulting piles of knitting make me feel all warm and cosy.

This is IsabelES‘s incredible collection of knitting and love. Pictured are Bronntanas, Opari, Cadeautje, Dovana, Hediye, another pair of Cadeautje, Polkon, Mitbringsel and Pyukkleen.

I hope mostgladly kept a pair of slippers for herself! Her magnificent pile includes Pyukkleen, Bronntanas, Opari, Hediye and three very cosy looking pairs of Cadeautje.

These stunning Pyukkleen cowls were knit by julieti and are a great inspiration if you’re not sure about choosing colours for colourwork.

Links to all the patterns from Knitworthy 1 can be found here.

And it’s not too late to join us for Knitworthy 2! The first pattern, Liebevoll, has been released and I’m determined to finish mine before the next pattern arrives on Monday.

We have enjoyed seeing people's Joy mitts on Ravelry and Instagram and although the kits are nearly sold out now, it is a pattern that can be done in many different colours, depending on what flag/colour scheme you want to use.

We have made genderqueer, asexual, non-binary and pansexual flag charts.

A little less invisible

This post first appeared on Whitney’s own blog and she kindly allowed us to share it with a wider audience. It has truly brought me so much joy to see knitters making and wearing their Joy mitts and, via a knitting project, feeling seen and visible. I know that Whitney’s experiences of what it means to choose to be visibly bi would resonate with many of you. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us Whitney.

An Open Letter to White Makers & Designers Who are Inspired by the Kimono and Japanese Culture

Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.

Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
