Time for woolies

by ysoldateague November 12, 2010


There are many reasons to love knitting, but I’ve been reminded over the last few weeks that I really need these pretty things. I’ve added delving into the stash of woolies to the scramble to find the right pair of shoes, and my phone, and keys, and a project that begins any excursion from home. In the process I’ve rediscovered some old favourites and I thought it might be fun to start a little sale, based on the design I’ve been wearing that week.

Since this is the first time I’m doing this, I have something extra special. Want to make a hat just like mine? Leave a comment before Midnight GMT on Wednesday the 17th telling me what’s been keeping you warm recently. I’ll pick a winner randomly who will receive a kit for the hat containing a project bag illustrated by my talented brother,2 balls of St. Denis Nordique in red and a printed copy of the pattern. Not everyone can win, but we are working on getting a few different kits up for sale, I’ll let you know as soon as that’s set up.

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.

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.
