Hand Care For Knitters

Grandma's Special Herbs.png

*Disclaimer - I am not a healthcare professional.  This post is not intended to replace medical advice.  This is my own personal experience and experiences that have been shared with me by others.  If you have a knitting related injury/strain/pain you should seek the advice of a qualified medical professional.

This is your annual reminder to take care of your hands this Giftmas knitting season!  For many of us, this is our busy season as we knit as much as possible finish all the gifts as before the clock strikes midnight on the 24th.  

Here are some strategies to help you make sure that you and your hands survive December.  There's also a cool infographic at the bottom of this post that demonstrates some helpful stretching techniques:  

  • Take a break: Knitting is meditative, I get it!  When I’m in the zone I can contentedly knit along for hours on end, which usually results in a sore hand and wrist the next day.  Remember to mindfully take breaks, walk away and find something else to do.  Sometimes I knit by the inch (as in I will knit a certain number of inches then take a break), sometimes I knit with a time limit (as in I will change tasks in one hour, or after this episode or podcast).

  • Stretch:  Stretching helps.  I find stretching to be especially effective when I do it in the evening or at bedtime since everything seems to seize up while I sleep.  

  • Warm water: Having a shower, a bath or even just washing some dishes in warm water seems to to help the pain and stiffness quite a bit.  

  • Wear a Brace: I hate this one, but it helps.  I have a brace for my right hand that restricts the range of motion and essentially forces me to rest.  It's a bitch to knit in, so I don't knit when I wear it, but that's probably the point.

  • Medication: I occasionally take anti-inflammatory medication to help with the discomfort.  Not very often though as I do not want to become dependent on them.  

Here are some things that other knitters have told me work for them:

  • Change your knitting style: I'm not bi-stitchual.  I only knit one way - I call it modified English style - the yarn is in my right hand, but instead of throwing it over the needle, I flick it with my index finger.  I have tried to switch to continental, but it doesn't work for me.  I'm set in my ways.  I envy knitters who can alternate easily between English and Continental.  If you try this, be careful about doing it in the middle of a project as your tension may change and so might your gauge.  

  • Change Crafts:  If you are multi-craftual, you can give your hands and wrists a break by focusing on your other crafts for a while.  Crocheting, sewing, writing, drawing, needlepoint, cross-stitch, spinning, dyeing...the fibre community is full of so many talented, multi-craftual people - we really are an amazing bunch of creative talents!

  • Avoidance: If there is a specific part of knitting that triggers your pain, avoid it.  Certain needles antagonize my pain.  I love to knit socks on 9 inch circular needles, but will have wrist pain for days afterwards.  If you have a trigger, try to avoid it.  

Do you have any tips or tricks for keeping your hands pain-free while you knit?  Let us know! 

A Review Of Addi Flexi Flips (addiCraSyTrio)

Addi Flexi Flips.png

Disclaimer: I purchased this product with my own money.  This product was not given to me for the purposes of review.  All opinions in this article are mine and I have not received any form of payment or compensation.  The links in this article are not affiliate links, I don’t benefit in any way if you click them.  

When I first heard about Addi Flexi Flips (I’m told my European friends know them as Addi CraSyTrio) I wanted to try them.  I have an innate *need* to try all things related to sock knitting.  I immediately (in September) ordered them from a local LYS and waited patiently for them to arrive from Germany.  They arrived last week!

What Are They?

These needles come in a package of 3 with a long test-tube-style hard plastic case.  They are a cross between DPNs and circular needles:  the 3.5 inch/9 centimetre metal tips are connected by a short 1 inch/2.5 centimetre cord between them for a total needle length of 8 inches/20 centimetres, measured tip to tip.  The idea is to cast your stitches onto 2 needles and use the 3rd needle to work the sts.  

97E22E4E-F749-46B3-867E-D14858D7FAAA-3067-00000349E43D8E1E.JPEG

First Impression

Addi needles have a reputation for being high quality, and these needles are priced accordingly.  This set of needles set me back $32CAD (for perspective, I could purchase 6 sets of 2.25mm nickel 32 inch fixed circs from Knitpicks for the same amount of money).   

The tips are reminiscent of my other Addi needles: the cords are flexible, and the joins are smooth to the touch.  The information included with the needles explains that each needle has 2 different tips: one tip is the Addi Turbo tip and the other is the sharper Addi Rocket tip.  To be honest, I have trouble differentiating the tips and I have to poke my finger with both tips to determine which end is the sharper of the two.

Casting On

When knitting small circumference in the round, I use either magic loop or 4 DPNs (depending on which needles are available to me at the time).  I love and use both methods equally.  That being said, using these needles felt like knitting with DPNs, but less fiddly.  The quality is great, and the joins are super smooth.  I was able to adapt to them very quickly and I’m really enjoying knitting with them.  I haven’t turned a heel or worked a toe with them yet, but I don’t anticipate having any needle-related issues with either.

My Addi Flexi Flips in action...

My Addi Flexi Flips in action...

Bottom Line

Pros: high quality, choice of 2 tips with each needle, these would make great cable needles, they are easy to adapt to and would be ideal if you like magic loop but don’t like the cord, or if you like DPNs but wish you could use fewer needles.  

Cons: premium priced, the tips are difficult to distinguish from each other, the needle size is printed on the needle tip in silver which is really difficult to read, knitting socks two-at-a-time would not be possible with these needles.  

I would recommend this needles if:

  • You like to try all the things

  • Like DPNs but wish you could use fewer needles

  • Like Magic loop but dislike the excess cord

  • Like 2 circular needles but dislike the excess cord

I would not recommend these needles if:

  • You want to knit socks two-at-a-time

  • You want a more affordable needle

Who You Gonna Call?

Don't Cross The Streams has been released into the world...

Do you remember that line from the original Ghostbusters movie? Well that line has inspired 2 yarn colourways and a sock pattern.  

Green and purple are two of my favourite colours! I love them both. In all shades and when they're together, they make my heart sing! When Petra (the talented dyer at Undercover Otter) and I were talking about colours, I sent her some Pinterest photos of green and purple together. As a result of that conversation she made these colourways, 'I've Been Slimed!' and 'There is only Zuul'. Green and purple remind Petra of Ghostbusters (which is very cool), so in keeping with the theme, I've designed 'Don't Cross The Streams'.

Worked from the cuff down, 'Don't Cross The Streams' uses mosaic colourwork (only one colour is used on each row - no floats to deal with!) and slipped sts to create the cabled stitch pattern on the front of the leg and top of the foot. The sock features an afterthought heel (so as not to disturb the rhythm of the stitch pattern) and a rounded toe. The pattern is graded for 4 circumferences and the foot length is customizable. 

You can download 'Don't Cross The Streams' with a 25% discount until Monday November 27th, 2017 - no coupon code required.

Bloom Where You're Planted

Bloom Where You're Planted has been released into the world...

The first time I saw this yarn I loved the delicate pink colour and the effect of the deeper flecks of pink speckled throughout the skein. My first thought was "this reminds me of cherry blossoms". When I contacted Emjay (the super talented dyer behind JOMA yarn) to tell her how gorgeous this yarn is, she told me that where she lives there isn't very much snow, but when the cherry trees release their blossoms and pink petals cascade through the air and gather in drifts on ground it's known as 'Pink Snow' which was the inspiration for this colourway. She captured it beautifully!

In addition to being good advice for life in general, "Bloom Where You're Planted" is inspired by cherry blossoms and growth so I wanted a pattern that would grow with the sock. 'Bloom Where You're Planted' is worked toe up and features a delicate, easy to memorize cable pattern that grows and 'blooms' as the sock grows and blooms. The sock features a sole flap and gussets and the stitch pattern continues on the front and back of the leg to the cuff. The pattern is graded for 5 circumferences and the foot length is customizable. 

You can download Bloom Where You're Planted with a 20% discount (no coupon code required) until Monday November 13th, 2017.

My Adventures At Rhinebeck!

Welcome to my Rhinebeck photo album! 

Two weeks ago, the Husbeast and I packed up the kids, and made our first pilgrimage to the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival (affectionately referred to by knitters as Rhinebeck).  I've never been to Rhinebeck before and this was a knitting-bucket-list item for me.  

It was AMAZING!  It was HUGE!  It was a bit overwhelming.  I've been told about the amazingness, and hugeness of Rhinebeck by a lot of knitters, but I was still unprepared for how amazing and huge it actually is.  

We had summer like weather, unfortunately for all the knitters who raced to finish beautiful Rhinebeck sweaters only to have to put them in a bag or backpack to prevent heat stroke.  

We went both days.  The Saturday was mostly for shopping (!).  Here are some photos of my haul:

 

On the Sunday, I attended a Q&A panel for my friend Lisa and her knitting students.  It was a designer meet and greet and I got to hang out with a lot of awesome knitters.  I also attended the Ravelry meet up.  Oh, and I MET CLARA PARKES - it was a total fangirl moment for me; thankfully I had the presence of mind to ask for a selfie with her and ask her to sign her book for me.  

I also met Barbara Benson, Corrine Walcher, Emily Lipa, Jen Lucas, Lars Rains, Sloane Rosenthal, Lisa Barnes and Pam Maher.  It was so nice to meet online friends in real life.  Fiber people are seriously the best people!  Here are some photos from Sunday: 

 

It was a long and busy weekend (and a 16 hour round trip in the car), but totally worth it.  Have you ever been to Rhinebeck?  If you go next year, we might see each other.  

A Pattern For Caffeinated Knitters

Caffeine has been  released into the world...

This sock design named itself; watching the stitch pattern form and the ease with which it knits up is totally addictive so it was named for my addiction of choice, caffeine. The name seems especially appropriate when working with this beautiful tonal blend of rich, gorgeous browns (which also reminds me of my morning cup of caffeine) by Mon Sheep Shop.

It also seemed fitting to give this design a name that is pronounced the same in both French and English since the pattern was designed by an English speaking designer (me!) and the yarn was dyed by a French dyer (Cindy!).

I hope you find this pattern as addictive as the test knitters and I do.

Caffeine is worked from the toe up starting with a rounded toe and features a simple to memorize stitch pattern that uses dipped stitches along the top of the foot. The heel flap, gussets, and instep are worked together with no pesky gusset stitches to pick up and the stitch pattern continues on the front and back of the leg to the ribbed cuff.

The pattern is graded for 4 circumferences and the foot length is customizable.  

You can download Caffeine with a 20% discount, no coupon code required, until Monday October 30, 2017.  


It's hard to believe that we're already in the final stretch of 2017!  I'm starting to plan my pattern releases and online course offerings for 2018 and I'd love your opinion.  Your opinion will help me to tailor the content that I provide so that it's relevant and interesting to you!  Would you please fill out my survey?  I promise it won't take very long and it's anonymous.  I want to keep offering designs and courses and content that you like.   You can find my survey here.

A Glimpse Into My Childhood With A New Sock Pattern

Phosphenes has been released into the world...

phos·phene
ˈfäsfēn
noun;plural noun: phosphenes
a ring or spot of light produced by pressure on the eyeball or direct stimulation of the visual system other than by light.
— Oxford Online Dictionary

Phosphenes is the grown up name of those cool shapes and colours that happen when you close your eyes tightly and rub them with your hands. When I was a kid, I loved rubbing my eyes, oohing and aahing over the kaleidoscope effect it created and then trying to open my eyes quickly enough to see all the colours, shapes and sparkles before they disappear. (I was really good at entertaining myself with this type of thing - we had no internet back then). 

This gorgeous yarn by Yarn Over New York has a hint of sparkle that reminds me of phosphenes and the stitch pattern was chosen to particularly play up the quick pops of colour that happen as you knit with it. The yarn is called "I❤ NY" and it's on her Broadway base. 

Phosphenes is worked cuff down starting with a tubular cast on (instructions are included and if you tend to cast on tightly, consider using larger needles for the cast on), a patterned heel flap and gussets and ends with a short row toe that is grafted closed with Kitchener stitch.  The pattern is graded for 5 circumferences and the foot length is customizable.

You can download Phosphenes with a 20% discount- no coupon code required - until Monday October 16th, 2017

Convergence Is Here

Convergence has been released into the world...

Convergence: the act of moving toward union or uniformity

The theory of convergence says that as societies develop they begin to converge and adopt or develop certain traits or characteristics of other developed societies.  I find this theory fascinating.  We live in interesting times; in my lifetime I've watched the world get smaller and smaller in so many ways (the fact that I carry the entire internet around in my purse, on my iPhone blows my mind).  We're able to connect with more people more quickly than ever before, yet in so many ways we've never been more disconnected from each other and in some ways we are more divergent than ever.  This design is inspired by the ebb and flow of convergence and divergence -  hopefully we are moving toward union

This pattern starts with 2 cable panels that are side by side at the top of the back of the leg of the sock.  The cable panels then separate and converge again on the front of the log just before the top of the foot.  Strategically placed increases and decreases help the cable panels to travel from the back to the front of the sock. 

The sample is knit using Simply Ewe Fiberworks River Street Sock in 'Golden Honey' and the name is absolutely perfect for this soft, mellow, golden yellow.  (She's taking names right now to dye up a special batch, so if you'd like a skein, your should head on over) 

Convergence is graded for 5 circumferences and the foot length is customizable. 

You can download Convergence with a 20% discount until Monday October 2nd - with no coupon code required! 

Time For A Plot Twist

Plot Twist has been released into the world...

I had decided on a pattern for this yarn before it arrived on my doorstep.  I sketched it, charted it and I knew exactly what this sock was going to look like. Then something happened. There was a Plot Twist; the yarn had other ideas.

I wound it, cast on to swatch, and it didn't share my vision for what it was to become - it had it's own plan. I make it a point never to argue with yarn (especially when there is cashmere involved) so I listened to the yarn and we worked together. Several swatches later, what resulted is a different sock than I had envisioned, but a sock that makes both the yarn and I happy. Hopefully, it will make you happy, too!

Worked from the top down, Plot Twist features a cable panel on the inside front leg of the sock and foot. The front and back of the leg are ribbed, with the ribbing continuing on the top of the short row heel and onto the toe. The pattern is graded for 4 circumferences and the foot length is customizable. 

The very gorgeous green yarn is called 'Jungle Green' and it was dyed by the very talented, Jeanne at Destination Yarn.  It's the First Class MCN base and I highly recommend it - the yarn is squishy soft and the colours are super rich! 

You can download Plot Twist with a 20% discount (no coupon code required) until Monday September 18th, 2017!

New Pattern Alert: non-sock edition

Defunk has been released into the world...

Defunk (v): to change or improve a negative attitude, mindset or behaviour

Sometimes to change things up a bit (or hide a bad hair day...or keep my head warm) I like to put on a hat.  Something about a good hat makes me feel uplifted (literally: for whatever reason, hats make me feel taller so I think I stand a little straighter) and a little more confident.  I’ve been wanting a newsboy-style-hat for ages, and I finally have one - and you can, too! 

 

This cap is worked starting with the brim.  The brim is shaped using short rows and a piece of flimsy plastic is inserted part way through the process to stiffen the brim. (I used a placemat from my local dollar store) The hat is then worked from the brim to the crown with some shaping to give it a traditional newsboy-cap shape and fit.  Another piece of plastic is used to craft a small button for the very top of the hat.  This hat is way easier than it looks and people are super impressed that it’s hand knit!  I hope you feel awesome when you wear it.

How About A Free Pattern? How About Several...

Abundance has been released into the world...

Can you believe summer is almost over?  In my part of the world, anyway.  I know my southern hemisphere friends are gearing up for spring, but where I live the days are starting to get shorter and the night air is a bit crisper - a portent of the new season to come.   

Fall is my favourite season and to celebrate it's imminent arrival and to help you bulk up your sock drawer for the cooler days ahead, I've teamed up with the amazing people at Knotions to release Abundance! 

I'm humbled to be in the company of some very talented designers in this issue, and I hope you'll find knitting inspiration from all the lovely designs they've contributed.  

This sock was actually designed late last year while I was reflecting, soul searching and contemplating on the feelings and experiences I want to manifest in the new year that was about to start.

I considered choosing a word of the year, but I couldn’t narrow it down to just one word. So I’ve decided to focus on a word each month.

The word for this month is abundance. I want to approach life from an abundance mindset. I want to focus on the abundance in my life and not the lack, I want to find opportunity when faced with an obstacle, and I want to share my abundant love, joy and happiness.

I hope you channel an abundance mindset while you knit this sock.  

Happy Knitting! 

 

New Pattern Alert - Light And Air Edition!

Aperture has been released into the world...


Aperture: /ˈapərˌCHər,ˈapərˌCHo͝or/ noun: a space through which light passes


These socks let in some light. And some air. These socks are perfect for summer nights when you need to keep your feet warm, but not too warm. They also make for a fun, quick knit! The pattern is worked from the top down with a patterned heel flap and gradually disappearing pattern on the top of the foot. The entire sock is then finished up nicely with a toe that is Kitchener stitched closed.

The yarn for this project was beautiful to work with!  the colours are gorgeous and there was just enough variegation in the yarn to keep it interesting but not compete with the stitch pattern.  Green and blue have always been one of my favourite colour combos.  This yarn is by  Machete Shoppe in their Simple Sock base in the colourway 'Curacao'.

How Many Cables Can 1 Sock Pattern Have?

The answer is LOTS of cables!  Say Hello to Lerwick, the cabli-est sock I've ever designed.  

Lerwick

Lerwick

Even the gussets are cabled! 

Lerwick is inspired by the beautiful scenery of the Shetland Islands in Scotland. (Disclaimer:  I haven't actually been to the Shetland Islands, but I fell in love with the scenery while watching 'Shetland' on Netflix.  If you love beautiful scenery, people wearing handknits and British/Scottish murder mysteries, I highly recommend it!)

Lerwick is a fully cabled sock that features an argyle inspired cable panel starting at the top of the leg and continuing down to the toe of the sock.

The back of the leg features cabled ribbing. The heel is uniquely constructed; the heel flap and gussets are worked simultaneously which allows for the cable pattern to continue on the heel flap and the gussets.

The sock finishes with a rounded toe that is grafted closed using Kitchener stitch

Lerwick is 20% off until Monday July 31st - no coupon code required.  You can download it here.
