Heart to Heart Washcloth. Südamest Südamesse.

The Heart to Heart washcloth pattern is the second pattern of the Blooming Clean Collection. There is going to be five patterns in the collection, sold separately (on Ravelry and LoveCratfs) or as an Ebook (on Ravelry only). You are not a big fan of washcloth? Use the pattern for making blocks for a blanket or beach bag. Be creative!

Südametega pesulapp on teine plaanitud kollektsioonist. Kokku tuleb viis mustrit, saadaval eraldi või E-raamatuna. Kes pesulappide fänn pole, võib mustrit kasutada näiteks lapiteki või rannakoti motiivina. Kindlasti on võimalusi veelgi. 
Head kudumist!

Hello, my friends!
As you know, there are several ways to follow me, blog, Instagram, Facebook, Ravelry. What do you use most? I use Instagram and Facebook a lot but there it is so easy to miss a post from my favourite knitters. Their algorithm chooses, what to show me, I'm not in charge. So easy to miss important (for me, not for IG or FB) news and offers. That's the main reason I decided to start sending newsletters directly to your mailbox. I promise not to spam you every single day, more likely just once a week or a couple of times per month. I'll send you special sneak peeks of my new designs, occasional discount code or even a free pattern, and you will always get a better introductory discount on my new releases.

Knitted Washcloth Collection. Kootud pesulapid.

I've been working on creating mosaic knitting charts since Spring. Once I started I can't stop anymore. I keep tweaking the charts and creating new ones, always more ideas coming up. I've released several charts for free in this blog and Instagram. They were basic colorwork charts, easy to use for mosaic knitting if you know how to work mosaic. Now I decided to create advanced charts with slip stitches included and create stitch by stitch written out pattern too. Some people are not good at following a chart, written is easier for them. The Flower Washcloth is first from the collection. The pattern is available on Ravelry and LoveCrafts. Collection will be available on Ravelry as an Ebook of a minimum of three patterns. Unfortunately, LoveCrafts doesn't support discounts, Ebooks or collections, that's why I decided to offer you lower price there.
A washcloth is a good starting point for learning about mosaic knitting. It's a small and quick to make project, perfect summer knitting and makes a great Christmas gift. Are you preparing for Xmas already?

Kevadel alanud töö mosaiik kudumise mustrite loomisega jätkub, vaibumise märke veel pole. Paar kuud tagasi jagasin mosaiik mustrite skeeme blogis ja Instagramis. Sellised skeemid on head, kui tead, kuidas mosaiiki kududa. Päris algaja tahab ehk detailsemaid skeeme, kus on täpselt näidatud, millised silmused kududa, millised tõsta. Lillemuster on esimene seeriast, kus isegi inglisekeelne "regivärss" on välja kirjutatud silmuste kaupa. Väike lapike on hea kasutada pesulapina või nõudepesuks. See on hea projekt mosaiigi harjutamiseks enne suuremate asjade kallale asumist. Suvel polegi ju aega suurteks kudumiteks, väike hea kotti pista. Miks mitte valmistada mõned pesulapid jõulukingitusteks?
Inglisekeelne muster on saadaval Ravelry ja LoveCrafts lehel.

Butterfly Heart Top.

I haven't worked often from other designers patterns in recent years. One exception is the Indie Design Gift-a-long at the end of the year, where I participate as a knitter and designer. It's such a great event. 
I had a long holiday recently. I took all my designing gear with me, laptop, yarns, needles and books. I got quite a bit of work done despite the beautiful weather. Finally, I decided enough of work, let's knit from a ready-made pattern! It was supposed to be a relaxing knit following the pattern. I picked the Butterfly Heart Top pattern by Drops Design. So like me, to pick a pattern with interesting details, not the easiest one! I had to follow several charts and written instructions at the same time. Once I finished the lace yoke, it was easy stockinette stitch to the end.  Before starting, I looked at projects made in Ravelry, read comments and made my own adjustments. I listed all the adjustments I made on my Ravelry project page
I'm very happy with the top!

Seda ei juhtu just tihti, et koon midagi valmis juhendi järgi. Mitu aastat olen osalenud Ravelrys Indie Design Gift-a-long kooskudumises nii kuduja kui ka disainerina, siis ikka koon midagi väikest. 
Nüüd juhtus nii, et olin pikal puhkusel. Võtsin kõik vajaliku kaasa, et puhkuse ajal ikka veidi disainitööd ka teha. Lõpuks otsustasin, et aitab, koon midagi valmis mustri järgi. Valituks osutus Butterfly Heart Top Dropsi mustrite varamust. Pitsilise osa kudumine polnud just kõige lihtsam, sest printerit ma ju kaasa ei vedanud. Korraga tuli ekraanil jälgida mitut skeemi ja juhendit. Ravelrys teiste kudumeid uurides nägin, et käeavad olid tihti liiga suured ja aluäär lai. Tegin oma muudatused, veidi harutasin ka. Lõpptulemusega olen väga rahul!

Flashback Friday Sale.

It's Flashback Friday! Today I'm looking back at previous years releases in July. 

The Arrows & Apples Shawl pattern was released in July 2017. It is designed to be symmetrical, with Apples in the centre of the shawl and Arrows racing towards the Apples from each side. The pattern can be easily adjusted in width and length and in yarn weight too. My first sample was made in fingering weight linen, long and narrow, more a scarf than a shawl. The final version was made in fine lace yarn I purchased in Australia. It took a lot of attempts to get the pattern right. I wanted it to be symmetrical, worked in one piece, without crafting. Figured it out finally!

The Sokikesed sock pattern was released in July 2018. It features simple lace combined with reverse stockinette stitch on toes, heels and gussets, so the smooth stockinette fabric is caressing your sensitive skin. This one pattern contains different options on how to work the lace. Can you spot the difference in lace pattern on white and red socks? One pattern, several options! A simple scalloped edge adds interest, like a strawberry on a cake, and allows the edge to be stretchy. My favourite summer socks!

I offer a whopping 50% off discount on one or both of these patterns in my Ravelry store. Use coupon code FBFJuly at checkout. This offer can not be combined with any other offers. End date July 9 midnight, UK time zone.

Perfect summer knits!
