On Saturday Jen visited K1 and kindly brought some of her yarn with her. There was much careful consideration of the colours
and photographing knits
and I even got to meet a beautiful Vivian.
Here’s Jen admiring what her yarn turned into.
It was knit by Nicky who kindly let me take some photos. I love meeting my designs on other people!
I would have posted this sooner, but I started a new sweater and I had to fight to get away from it. It’s sort of related though, because I’m finally using the Lorna’s laces green line that would have been Vivian if it hadn’t taken a trip to Ireland on the way. I kind of think what I’m doing with it now is even better for that yarn though and I’ll post about it soon. If I manage to stop knitting for long enough.
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.
