Includes one skein of #zenyarngarden
Serenity 20 or Silk Single AND mini skein AND Groovy pattern.
Dreary day progress on my Boyland Knitworks Alyeska sweater. I've been on a lot of calls today and knit all the way through.
Happy to report winning a game of yarn chicken. The white accent was made with a ball of angora yarn my mother left me when she passed away at what seems increasingly like the awfully young age of 56. I made it with a few yards to spare just a day after what would have been her 77th birthday. I think she would be happy seeing it in this sweater, made also with yarn from Nox Yarn Company, Zen Yarn Garden, Baah, and MadelineTosh.

Weaving in ends is more fun with a handmade tapestry needle! 🧶 This twisty thing was a surprise stocking stuffer this year, and I was so excited to use it for the first time today (even if it *was* a few hours of weaving in ends 😆).
Making progress on a new design on a cloudy, damp January day. 🧶❤️
Today's loot from @stevenbestudios
😍😍😍💗💕 you guys this is my FAVORITE reason to come back to Minnesota 💗 okay that's a lie it's family first but THEN it is Stevenbe in Minneapolis! And what a steal because this was all 30% off!
It's the final day of my Advent parcels from @ceirdwyn_
and it's a huge skein of fingering weight yarn! This colourway is not easy to photograph in Yorkshire in December, but hopefully you get the idea. It's sparkly and beautiful and soft, and I have no idea what it's going to be yet!
Thank you so much for all these wonderful gifts - it has been a real joy opening them every day, and I can see you put in a huge amount of work to create them for me.

Stefanie finished our Itty Bitty Picoty Shawl knit in one of our sock blanks! The pattern is available FOR FREE on Ravelry and could also be knit in any of our fingering weight yarns. Perhaps a bit of sparkle for the holidays?

"I finally finished this shawlette! It’s knit from a @zenyarngarden
sock blank, which I talk about on today’s blog post. Link in profile! #zenyarngarden #shawlknitting #sockyarn #handdyedyarn #igknitters
Feeling anxious that this gift won't be done on time despite the fact that it's been glued to my hands day in and day out since Friday. Trying to take time to enjoy the little details as encouragement. I think the final product is going to be beautiful. 😍
Yarn is two skeins of @zenyarngarden
OOAK "Robin Hood" from two very very different dyelots and I am in loooove. -@megainus
I didn't actually think this was possible, but I needed yarn for a project and found it in stash? Do you mean stash can sometimes be used instead of always getting new yarn?? This opens up a whole new world of possibility!
This is @zenyarngarden
Serenity DK in Midnight Blue and it has been aging in my stash for quite a while. The LYS I got it from is no longer open, unfortunately.
Pie, coffee, and a new cast on... Is there any better way to celebrate the start of holiday break? -@megainus
My dog also models my knitwear as a part-time gig. It's how he earns extra treats lol This is a small project for myself (a slouchy hat) knit up with #zenyarngarden
in the colorway "Camelot". Working on the decreases now and soon to be shopping for a pompom to go with it.
Finished my hat last night. It is so soft and warm. I’ve never worn a wool hat before and I know it will be perfect for our bitter Iowa winters. Pattern - Rainbow Textured Slouchy Hat by me available in my etsy shop, Yarn - Zen Yarn Garden hand dyed fingering wool Pom Pom - handmade by me
When the dog days of summer fade and the doggone cold ass days of winter take over... almost 4 years ago I decided to make a hat for my husband. It was my first hat ever & to be honest I really struggled with the pattern so I gave up and created this pattern instead. I’ve remade the hat a few times since then & it never disappoints. Original hat in @expressionfiberarts
natural sport weight Yak silk & newest hat in @zenyarngarden
worsted weight Stardust.
Finally decided to make something for me out of my hand dyed merino wool I’ve been saving away. Decided to use two strands of fingering weight together and I’m loving how the colors are looking together. Yarn- @zenyarngarden
in Grey Wolf and Tuxedo.ooak
