Episode 3 March Wrap-Up is now live on my HandDrawnYarn Youtube Channel
I know it’s not the end of March yet but tonight we will adjust our clock so I think it’s also time to wrap up my yarny activities for March 🙂 I have not got a whole lot done but hey, one stitch at a time, right?

This Crofthoose hat is the 2nd fair isle hat I have knitted from the 2016 Shetland WoolWeek pattern. The hat is designed by the lovely shetlander knitter Ella Gordon. What I like about this pattern is that it’s easy to follow and you can choose five colour pallets to play with. So if you are a colour maniac/enthusiast like me, you would enjoy knitting one 🙂
Click on the video above to see what colour choice I chose from Blacker Yarn and Jamieson and Smith 2ply/fingering weight.
This project took me about three weeks to finish but I am a slow knitter so don’t take it as a standard knitting time…lol
Hiya, my mini yarn shop needs a happy woolly “vote” from you !
Thank you in advance 🙂
For those who didn’t get a chance to visit the festival which was a-m-a-z-i-n-g by the way, here is a mini film I made during my break from volunteering and a short clip of the Ceilidh Night 🙂
See you again next year!
I really love this song 😀 !!
Are u ready for Edinburgh Yarn Fest ?
It’s my 3rd year volunteering at the festival. Oh, I finally finished my epic shawl The Doodler to wear to the festival too😁🐏
See you there !
How has your week been?
Mine’s been great. Busy dyeing as usual (I like saying this, it sounds funny if you don’t know the context that i dye yarn!) 😀 But this week I also spent quite some time making mini yarn ball earrings to stock up in my Etsy shop and for up-coming craft fairs in summer and autumn. I know spring is not actually official here yet in Scotland but soon ?!
Yesterday was a kickoff of MarledmagicMKAL I have joined. It’s a 4-week knit along (KAL)hosted by the knitwear designer Stephen West. So i received my first clue and started knitting a few rows already. Since we can go wild with the yarn choices, I decided to throw in some of my hand dyed yarn in the pack as well 🙂
What do you think of these beauties?
Now the needles are calling me. I’d better sign off to continue on my rows.
Happy Knitting and Crocheting!
Ok, after hours of talking to (myself) the camera, I decided I didn’t like the way I sounded !
So I came up with a way I could show off my first knitted hat within seconds and without having to say a thing to bore you..ha..ha..
In the future, if you like to see what I have created, made, tried, and failed, you can also subscribe to my channel here
See you on the flip side 🙂
