so much for stash busting

by ysoldateague February 17, 2006


This just arrived, well it arrived this morning and I just got up. But the point is we just met.

8 balls of polar in a nice chocolatey brown and 8 skeins of baby pink rowanspun. I’m making another hoodie with the polar, but I have no idea what I’ll do with the rowanspun. I like the lacey blouse in loop-de-loop but I’ve got no idea whether I’d wear it, or if it would look good if I did. Guess I’ll come up with something. Ooh and the best bit? I ordered this less than 24 hours ago, and it was on sale. I think the rowanspun was 95p and the polar was ?3.20. Courtesy of the Oh and thanks to Becky for telling me about them. She’s making a very cute Arisaig by the way.

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.
