How to: Easy way to knit a Nupp


I've decided to put here some 'How to' posts from time to time to which I can refer in my patterns later. And who knows - maybe you'll find something useful too.

Today I will show how I knit a nupp. As for me this is an easiest way to knit the nupps - without any turn arounds, or hooks, or knitting and purling back and forth. And this is actually a classic method for knitting nupps in laced shawls - they are bumpy, but not to hard.

So, it's really easy and I've just made a few photos to help you understand the whole process but don't get scared by a lot of photos - it's much easier than it might look.

Ok. Let's say you need to make a nupp in the next knitted stitch you have on the left needle.
1. Knit through that stitch as usual, but pull the stitch a little bit further then usual. And don't slip the knitted stitch from the left needle. Keep it on the needle! Something like this:

Goodbye 2014! Hello 2015!


I still can not believe it is 2015 already! Happy New Year, guys!
This will be a very short post with only one pic - the collage with my projects from 2014. It's not all of them though, as I didn't take any pics of repeated projects.. But still - it's nice to see them all together.

Hope that 2015 will be as productive as 2014 was!

Crochet baby blankets


This time I've decided to show you my crochet baby blankets that I've made this summer.

I've been dreaming to crochet a baby blankets with motives for quite some time now but all the yarn tails that you have to put in each time have been stopping me all the time.

But after admiring all the lovely crochet blankets on Evasdoodlings 's IG I just couldn't wait any longer to start mine as well.

First one was pretty bright and colourful. This colour combo - turquoise, mint and chocolate - is my most favourite! So it was a pure pleasure to work on this blanket.
Here are some photos from my IG which shows you pieces of future blanket:

Cozy Fall. New woven scarves


I've got some new scarves that I just have to show you! They are so great for Fall - perfectly colored and not to warm.

First one is very classic Fall-ish. There is a grey sky, autumn air and a little bit of golden leaves in it.

Plums on the Sun!

Finally I have something to show you :)
I was pretty busy these last few weeks as I took a class of programming. Well, not actual programming maybe, just a begining as I don't know anything about that. That's why it takes almost all my time now... But I'm really trying to find a free space in my schedule to knit or to weave a little every single day.
So this scarf was on my loom for month I think. That is a longest time I've had an unfinished scarf actually. So when I got new orders few days ago I needed to finish this one.
I'm totally in love with this colorway (it is Fluorite, btw)! Though it was a surprise for me. I bought this yarn on Ravelry and on the photo it looked more like yellow-brown colors. So I was really (but of course pleasantly) surprised when I got this purple-yellow-gray skein!

Pistachio braids

A few weeks ago I bought a very pretty cotton yarn for my spring and summer creations. It is a Knit Picks Shine Sport (60/40 cotton and wood fiber). Amazingly soft yarn with a very slight silky touch. Usually I'm not a huge fan of cotton yarns because they are dry and even though it's soft - I don't like to hold it in my hands for a long time (I mean while knitting). But this blend was very comfortable for me and from now on it is in my favorite yarns list :)

So I bought a few balls of Pistachio colorway and a few of Serrano.

I decided to use a Pistachio first and I really want to make something with braids, not lacy. Probably I just got tired from all the lace projects lately.

So here is what I've got:

Mom's laced pullover

A few months ago my mom asked me to make her a laced pullover for spring and early summer. She already found some pattern in Russian knitting magazine and I just have to choose suitable yarn for this project.
I was hoping to find some blend with 1) cotton or 2) vicose (rayon) or 3) bamboo as these fibers are perfect for summer knitting.
I made three swatches and somehow the winner was Viscose/acrylic 60/40 blend - Mallorca from Ice Yarns. I have to say that I was pretty sure that Acrylic will make this yarn awful. But.... The yarn is really good and soft, nice to skin and pretty cold because of rayon (perfect for hot days). I like it so much that I also making myself a jacket with it :)
