I was SO EXCITED to find a sweater’s worth of Tanis Fiber Arts Orange Label in my stash in a special OOAK colourway ‘Green Bliss’ (she doesn’t carry this base any more, but a similar base is here, and a similar colourway would be Lucky Penny) , and I cast on for City Limits right

Felt Stegosaurus!

Somehow managed to make this sweet little stegosaurus in all the craziness! This was a little kit from @molliemakes , one of my few magazine subscriptions. I love and was sad to hear they have also been affected by COVID-19 and will be on pause for producing the magazine until this passes. In the meantime,

Elmhurst Sweater In Progress

Tue, 04/21/2020 - 01:54

www.knittedbliss.com

It’s been a long time since I knit a bottom-up sweater, but this Elmhurst pattern has been a delight. Trying it on before finishing up the raglan decreases and neckline, because I like my necklines a little roomier. Also, this is clearly my go-to #StayingHomeClub hairstyle. Long live the messy bun. . . . .

I’m a big fan of Bristol Ivy‘s designs. Not just because they are full-out gorgeous and wonderfully designed, but because Bristol is sort of genuinely good person that you want to see succeed in life. I had the pleasure of meeting her  a couple years ago, and she is just a delightful, funny, warm person.
