Quick sneak peek of my new design πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š Do you like seaming parts of your knitting sweaters and cardigans together or try to avoid it?
I'm so happy how my side seams look in this project 😍🍰 #knittinginspiration #loveknitting #newdesign #onemorerow #transformyouryarn #vitalinacraft_wip #knitting #knittingaddict #knittersoftheworld #instaknitting #weareknitters #wak #thepetitewool #yarnaddict

The longer I design knitting garments and write knitting or crochet patterns for them the more comments β€œwhy pay so much for the homemade pattern?” I get from some knitters. Normally I ignore this question but today I’d like to share my opinion on this matter. So, if you ask this question, then my answer will be: β€œDon’t pay a penny! There are thousands of free patterns from yarn companies that you can download and enjoy your knitting!” However, not everyone is aware that the cost of these free patterns is included into the price of yarn these companies sell and it is a part of advertisement. Anyway, at least you’ve got a feeling that this pattern is FREE! By the way yarn companies work with independent designers too!
The level of knitting patterns from indie designers sometimes higher than patterns from some knitting magazines and have much more information than you normally would have from free patterns. A lot of my patterns have some theory and useful tips as well as photo-tutorials for some techniques.
For those of you who would like to ring up the curtain and find out more about process and what actually stays behind the scene I’ve decided to write a post to give you some ideas about the time and resources involved in every pattern creation. 
The direct link for the blog post is in my profile.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone 🌹🌹🌹 #knitaddict #knittinginspiration #newdesign #loveknitting #wak #weareknitters #onemorerow #transformyouryarn #knittersoftheworld #instaknitting #yarnaddict #wool #vitalinacraft_wip #thepetitewool
Hello everyone. It is my first selfie and my new hair cut. I'd like to use this opportunity to say welcome to all of you and introduce myself. My name is Tanya. I live in South Wales, UK.  I'm a mom of of two lovely girls of 1 and 3 years old, knitter, blogger and indie designer. Here also some points about my knitting:
πŸ”Ή I love knitting more than crochet
πŸ”ΉI do prefer bottom up knitted sweaters and cardigans πŸ”ΉI love knitting hats on circular needles. I do prefer other garments knitted with side seams
πŸ”ΉMy stash of yarn is very small. I've got just about 3 or 4 kg of yarn on my shelf
πŸ”ΉI don't like knitting socks πŸ”ΉI don't have many WIPs in my knitting bag. I've got just two projects in process, I need to attach buttons to one cardigan and decorate one hat. πŸ”ΉMy kids already have more knitted garments than I do.🐣🐣
πŸ”ΉWool is my favourite material.

It would be great if you could introduce yourself and share your knitting experience and habits too. πŸ˜‰πŸŒΉ ..

Crochet owl backpack for my little one.  This backpack is crocheted with #Phil3 cotton yarn from #phildar. I think it is a perfect yarn for both knitting and crochet. 
I'm curious why the owl theme is so popular? πŸ™„πŸ£

Swatching and stitch developing in process. Two of these cable stitches already have been used for my hat and cowl designes. Wondering if I should use the third one tooπŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š #loveknitting #love_knitting #knitaddict #knittinginspiration #vitalinacraft_wip #lovecables #yarnaddict #instaknitting #transformyouryarn #knitting #knittersoftheworld #newdesign #knittingpattern
