Hearty Links with Felted Loops.

Hello & Welcome to my 58th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Todayโ€™s feature is a snowy bit of fibrous fun ๐Ÿ˜

Oh how I love to watch snow meltโ€”especially after being surrounded by it since November. Friday’s mild temperatures melted a lot of snow, so I grabbed a few colourful props and ran outside to enjoy the show! Yup… gotta โค a good ol’ fibrously fun backyard yarn-bombing photo shoot ๐Ÿ™‚ Later that night, a storm blew into town and re-blanketed us in several inches of white :-/ But oh well, it was fun while it lasted…

The golfing clown is a Jean Greenhow design. This half-knitted WIP of mine has been cooped up in the back of my yarn closet for … gulp … years! Really wanna/oughta/gotta get around to finishing that guy! Fun to take him out to play in the snow, though! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Wantย to try this at home? M’ Snow Lady’s face uses aย pink Brambleโค๏ธTINI for her noseย andย 2 greenย Hearty Links with Felted Loops for eyes and mouthย ๐Ÿ™‚



Introducingโ€ฆ my Brambleโคtini Heart knitting pattern

โ€“โ€” ๐Ÿ’œ Have you thought about buying a copy of my knitting pattern today? ๐Ÿ’œ

    • Thanks Sarah โค Yeah… those big green heart-shaped eyes with loopy grin really brought her to life! Adding the heart-wreath bouquet made her a blushing bride ๐Ÿ™‚ Our entire forecast is below average temps, so spring will likely be another month… sigh :-/ Hoping for another mild day to try these pics again, though!

      Love hand-knit socks! What colour are you knitting yours? Hope you have a wonderful week! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’œ Jackie@KWH

      • Youยดre very welcome, Jackie! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love ideas like yours, the photos are just great! So much fun to look at and I guess even more doing them ๐Ÿ˜‰
        How come that spring is always so shy coming forth whereas winter has no problem at all with that?? Being stuck in snow since November must be so hard! I had been hoping for another snowfall but we only had the one in the beginning of January… as for now, Iยดve decided that thereยดs no need for it anymore as I want it to be summer! ๐Ÿ˜€
        The socks are a light gray with neon pink cuff, heel and pink ๐Ÿ˜‰ Theyยดre so much fun to do, arenยดt they?
        Wish you a beautiful week! xxxxxx ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

        • awe thanks Sarah โค Love those colours for cheery socks! Yeah, great fun to play like a kid in the snow and add a dash of colour to the long winter! Spring truly is much too shy, while winter is not shy at all :-/ January is a good month for snowโ€”gotta have some snow! Fresh flakes have fallen a few times after these pics were posted …sigh… Lots to shovel! But this week's forecast predicts melting for those snowbanks and I'm looking forward to another glimpse at our grass ๐Ÿ™‚ Wishing you a lovely weekend of sock knitting and some summer weather soon! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿ’œ Jackie@KWH

          • Hi Jackie! ๐Ÿ™‚ My mum decided she wants exactly the same socks, so Iยดm still knitting ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe Iยดll post them when Iยดm finished ๐Ÿ™‚
            Iยดve never shoveled snow in my life! Around here in Berlin there really is never much of it around… But I bet itยดs good workout ๐Ÿ˜‰ Iยดll keep my fingers crossed that those snowbanks of yours are going to melt soon and that you can enjoy more glimpses at your grass ๐Ÿ˜‰ Today I saw the first crocuses! hurray!! ๐Ÿ™‚
            Have a lovely week, my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค xxxxxxx

            • awe so sweet, Sarah โค Hope you do post your mother/daughter socks. That'd be a cute Mother's Day post ๐Ÿ™‚

              Yup, shovelling is a great workout! Also getting to be quite the stretch, with some snowbanks now waist-high. No complaints, but the weather's been ferociously cold too :-/ But spring is on its way! And starting yesterday, all daytime highs are +Cยบ … currently +6ยบC … yay!!! Hope your week's been going well and wishing you a lovely day! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’œ Jackie@KWH

    Yeah! You are BAAAACK again! And this subscription is working!

    I always loved getting your comments and articles on Facebook, but I just had to quit FB for my sanity’s sake. So much time was wasted and so much needed to be done. Subscribing to your articles this way is great.

    Today I actually managed to sandwich the layers of a mando bag I had pieced earlier. Now for the quilting and assembly… Yes! Yesterday I managed to altar a pair of pants to fit. Cutting out FB promises to give me a life again. Maybe I can actually get back to knitting and crochet and feel useful there too. I have the yarn just sitting in storage.
