Tonight’s sock progress - about 20 more rows plus a small cuff to go 😁 (Well, and then another entire sock!) #knitting #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #handdyedyarn #diamonddyeworks
Progress! You can see where my heel flap was problematic; but the nice thing is a bit of spare yarn and a needle and that’s soon fixed. 
This is the part of the pattern I’ve modified most totally - plugged in a stranded version of my Adamantis heel plus a full gusset. 
Big feet mean tweaking patterns to suit!

Peacock sock progress is being made! 
I’ve just switched to a size 3 needle; this will be the sock for my right foot. 
I deal with swelling predominately on the left side of my body, and my left foot is a quarter inch longer than my right foot even when it isn’t swollen, so the left sock will be done on a size 3 needle the whole way through. 
This is yet another great thing about knitting - I can literally use algebra and sticks and string to make something to fit *my* body. 
Also, consider this a PSA: your body is perfect just the way it is ♥️ #knitting #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #handmadesocks #makersgonnamake #indiedyedyarn #diamonddyeworks #bodypositive
Another .75” before I start the gusset - I’m essentially completely rewriting the pattern, but that’s the beauty of bespoke knits. 
I’d be further along but I just spent the last 2 hours charting the rest of both socks in #PatternGenius. 
I am seriously hopeful that @lumikarmitsa’s publishers will come out with digital editions so I don’t have to do this for all of the ones I want to knit 😂

My Valentine’s Day gift to me yesterday was giving myself permission to cast on these socks. 
They are from a Finnish book, not available yet in English, and I literally randomly contacted a lady from Finland and asked her to purchase the book for me as nobody that stocked it would ship to Canada. 
I’m using some of my own handdyed yarn, size 2 @louetnorthamerica Kollage square circulars...and I recharted the pattern in #PatternGenius so I could widen the toe and work the pattern toe-up. 
Of course I only knit charts from @knitcompanion because paper charts? No thank you 😂 I’m addicted to my Magic Markers.

Hi! I’m Rebecca, and I’m a knitter, indie dyer, weaver, tatter, embroiderer, jewelry-maker... And a wife to one man (21 years plus!) and mom to an amazing 15 year old boy plus 2 really bratty cats. 
In my non-yarn life, I work in tech - providing support and more at @ithemes / @liquidwebinc as well as working on my own site(s). I love #WordPress and my professional life has revolved around it for over a decade. 
I’m cis/het and my pronouns are she/her. One of my favourite things to do is meeting people who aren’t like me, and I support diversity in faith, gender, relationships, and presentation of any or all of the above. 
I am super opinionated but try always to be kind.

My new hangtags came in yesterday - thanks to the 50% off coupon because I scout deals to keep my #handdyedyarn prices as low as possible for you all 😁

Repost from my other account @whatareyoumakingnow 
I spent today knitting on my Miss Winkle scarf from @strickmich (yarn is my own #diamonddyeworks) and warping for tea towels, plus doing a bit of weaving on them. 
I also made homemade pizza, homemade chicken noodle soup, homemade molasses ginger cookies, did 3 rounds of dishes, a couple of loads of laundry, some paperwork, and some work on one of my websites. 
I’m sure glad today was a lazy storm day! 🤪😂 #knitting #weaving #indiedyedyarn #makersgonnamake #snowmageddon2019

4 skeins of my own handdyed tonal yarn, and the Rockin’ Rows Pattern by @strickmich - I’m all set for my #stormknitting! Forget #stormchips, I have #stormyarn 😂
