Couldn‘t sleep...so listening to a podcast and allowing my mind to wander while knitting. (Making a short Cowl.) I‘m listening to Martini‘s and Murder....#truecrime #bookaddict #booklover #knittersoflitsy

megzlynn Beautiful! Also, I love your blog. I just subscribed. 1w
TheBookbabeblog84 @megzlynn it‘s so outdated. I plan of working on it more in the new year. And may be starting a bookish podcast 🖤 1w
megzlynn @TheBookbabeblog84 I will keep an eye out for it! 1w

One thing I love about my Kobo Clara is that I can prop it up and knit while reading. Here's a great quote from Memories of Ice about a group of people switching their loyalties to a new god: “Must be Jhess, then. Mistress of Weavings. They're all taking up knitting, but fiercely--“. It's meant as a joke, but I would pledge loyalty to Jhess, if paying tribute involved knitting fiercely! #knittersoflitsy

rabbitprincess I love that cool blue yarn! 💙 3w
kwmg40 @rabbitprincess Thanks! My niece asked for birthday socks and she chose the yarn. She has good taste. 3w

This shawl doesn‘t look like much after two days and 28 rows. Only 354 more rows to go, plus a wide lace border. A serious drawback to this pattern is that it takes all of my attention and I can‘t listen to an audiobook at the same time. #KnittersofLitsy will understand my biggest challenge, as someone who knits tightly, is an Estonian nupp that requires making 7 in one stitch, then purling all 7 together in the subsequent row. 😰

Oryx Yikes! Looks good, but hard! 1mo
Louise Hats off to you! It will be gorgeous when finished! Really nice and versatile color choice! 1mo
Crazeedi That looks very complex, I admire your talent! 1mo

CoffeeCatsBooks Looks beautiful! 1mo
ScientistSam Looks lovely. I'm nowhere near as advanced a knitter as you, but I do tend to knit tightly too so I feel your pain! 1mo
Lindy @ScientistSam I‘m learning how to loosen up. No other choice with this pattern. 😬 1mo
Lindy @CoffeeCatsBooks @Crazeedi @Oryx Thanks! I plan to proceed slowly and carefully, keeping errors to a minimum. 🤞 1mo
Lindy @Louise Thanks! I love the colour too. The fibre is a blend of alpaca and linen. 1mo
Louise Oh, what an interesting blend! I adore both fibers, though I tend to associate one with winter and the other with summer. ☃️☀️ 1mo
Lindy @Louise I bought the yarn at a knitting store in Tokyo in March. It‘s taken me until now to decide on a shawl pattern that I like . 1mo
Louise I hope you‘ll post a pic of the finished shawl! 1mo
Lindy @Louise I will. Thanks for your words of encouragement. 😊 1mo

What started as a quest to find local wool to knit started Californian Stephany Wilkes on a life-changing path. She documents the many steps along the way from sheep to clothing, most important being the lack of infrastructure. Transformed, Wilkes ends up quitting her job in the tech industry to become a full time shearer. Informative + personal: I recommend this to #knittersofLitsy & anyone curious about where their clothing comes from.

Cathythoughts Nice one 👍🏻♥️ 2mo
Cathythoughts I loved the sheep‘s feet / legs ( boots ) and that they are wild mountain creatures 2mo

Lindy @Cathythoughts Yes, the shepherding of land through judicious management of sheep—animals who serve a function in nature, particularly certain heritage breeds—it‘s all very interesting. 2mo
Cathythoughts They are so hardy ... we often see them jumping up the mountains & roaming about ... a beautiful sight 2mo
Lindy @Cathythoughts 😊🐑🐑🐑⛰ 2mo

“Vendors apologize for not having much (or any) yarn to sell this year, because it smells too strongly of smoke. I want yarn that smells of smoke. Smoke is our terroir this year, the story and taste of our place…”

The part about the devastating fires in California in 2017 has an emotional impact in the epilogue, after readers have come to know the individual farmers and their flocks of sheep who were in the affected counties. #knittersofLitsy

Wanted to knit. Started a pair of leg warmers. Went back to reading and listening to the tagged book.
Started packing a parcel for a friend, made coffee and did some more reading.
Now I'm thinking of either reading some more or winding more yarn cakes, because I am suffering from a serious case of Starteritis (the urge to start a new project, or twenty).

Sometimes all the possibilities are overwhelming. 😜

Caroline2 Starteritus!!!! I have a serious case of that too! 😆 2mo
julesG @Caroline2 If only I ever suffered from finisheritis. Lots of nearly done projects lying around, alas, I'll only finish them when I need the knitting needles they are sitting on. 2mo

IamIamIam We're the complete opposite today! I'm trying my hardest to avoid doing anything!!! 2mo
4thhouseontheleft Count me in as a starteritis sufferer. 😂 2mo
julesG @IamIamIam Guess I'm just restless from resting too much yesterday. 2mo
julesG @4thhouseontheleft There are worse things to suffer from. 😀 2mo
Allylu Yes! I keep telling myself, “You can‘t start that yet - you aren‘t done with this!” But I keep dreaming... 2mo

So happy with how my "Winter is Coming" shawl turned out! I can't wait to give it to my friend and see what she thinks. #knittersoflitsy

valeriegeary 👏👏👏 3mo
Come-read-with-me @WhatWouldJaneDo This is lovely! The colours are beautiful - they remind me of a bright winter day! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Come-read-with-me thank you! I love how the colors turned out as well; I am terrible at guessing how my variegated yarns will look when I work with them so it's always an exciting surprise! 3mo

Come-read-with-me @WhatWouldJaneDo It is a challenge, but this is sumptuous! It makes me want to move back to a climate where I can wear something like it. You did a gorgeous job. 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Come-read-with-me it's fairly light so it will work for our Texas winters. I visited family in Maine a few weeks ago and my aunt and I were discussing the differences in our knitting - down here my knitter friends and I mostly make decorative pieces and she's always going for warm wool utility. 3mo
Come-read-with-me @WhatWouldJaneDo Good point. I grew up in Western Canada, so warmth was what I aimed for. Now I live in Southern California and can‘t get off the warmth idea!! Time for a 🧶 reset! 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Come-read-with-me yep there are a ton of cool fibers and patterns to keep up with the hobby in any climate! This is the Wild at Heart pattern by Megan Macko, it's free on Ravelry. I also did the stripe version for myself so I'll post a pic of that one once it's done blocking. 3mo
marleed It‘s so pretty! 3mo
