I dyed some more last night. I’ll get some pics when I get home and see if I can put together a little tutorial on the frame I made to measure the yarn out with the stripes (pictured in the post below). It’s really easy and once you’ve made it measuring yarn for any stripe sequence is simple. It’s also highly addictive, I started this project as something to do with the random sock weight natural wool in my stash. I’ve used all that, some blue and tonight I’m ordering some superwash merino in cones.
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.
