It’s possible that this shawlette thing is getting obsessive, but here’s another one.

This is in the yarn that I dyed a few months ago when I visited the wonderful Lilith at her studio (you too can visit). Lilith scribbled a few notes while I was randomly sploshing dye around and while I knew she was a colour genius I was still impressed when she managed to perfectly re-create what I’d done. So now, if you want, you can make your own little shawlettein Ysolda yarn.Once again I forgot to take pictures before I sent the sample off to the magazine, but I think it also works well as part of a more casual outfit, scrunched around your neck. I guess I just need to make my own so that I can show you.

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.

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.
