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