Instagram photo by garmenthouse - It's been such a cold summer!  Yesterday, I kept throwing on layers until I caved and just put on jeans and my favorite soft sweater!  This chill is very conducive to trying new tea (Ambessa, a lingonberry + green tea by Marcus Samuelsson) and my constant knitting addiction.  Also, that Thai Quinoa Salad was so amazing, I ate it for breakfast! (Recipe found on Pinterest.)

garmenthouse - garmenthouse @dreareneeknits I am the BIGGEST summer whiner, so I'm totally thrilled. One night I had the windows open and had a dream we woke up to snow! I think I was a little anxious about the summer's first (outdoor) swimming lessons the next morning!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @hanbirdflower it's one of my basic favorites - Lion Brand Fishermen's wool.
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @lisadsawyer it's just called Thai quinoa salad and I think it's from foodiecrush.
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @sommarblomma I should go back to T&C and see if they have any more of that tea and send it to you. It's wonderful. I also have a box for the kids and your Frye's. They are amazing.
sally_wolfe_ - Sally Wolfe Aw you always make it look cosy and beautiful. Cold and rainy in uk too today. :-(
jfred26 - Miss you! Wish y'all could be at the family picnic tomorrow! XOXO
thesejoys - Joyce O'Connell that quinoa salad looks delish!
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - I'm finishing up an EZ Pi Shawl I started forever ago, and trying to pick my next project.  How beautiful is Hannah Fettig's new book, everyone?  If you haven't listened already, you need to check out her interview on the @woolful podcast.  I think I'm going to try to jump in on the Home&Away Woolful Knit Along, but have never done one before and have no idea how to KAL.  Any tips?  Are they fun?  Are any of you doing this knit along?  If so, which pattern did you choose? #woolfulkal

mrsinsleyohana - Kate Insley I'm a newbie to KALs too, my first being @dreareneeknits #yogashawlkal, but I love it! It's so fun to see others projects develop, very encouraging to keep going, and it's a built in support group if you have any questions. And yes, this book is GORGEOUS! I've joined this KAL, too, but I'm just doing the hat as I have a few large projects I'm working on and would love a small, portable something :)
woolful - Ashley Yousling Oh yay! Hope you do! I'm knitting Georgetown, staring this week
knitbot - Hannah Fettig 😘😘
sandyran - Sandra Reuston The book is really beautiful...so much good stuff packed in it. I really wanted to do the woolful knit along but committed to another sweater (and I am really not a sweater knitter). Can't wait to see what you cast on next.
thecraftsessions - Felicia Semple I'm obsessed with Georgetown! My favourite. Can't wait to see yours @woolful. What are you thinking of making? @garmenthouse
woolful - Ashley Yousling @thecraftsessions yes! Might you join? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - Blocked and I'm so thankful it relaxed a bit - it's perfect!  And so, so soft.  It'll be no problem wearing this next to my skin this summer!

vmarcoux - m a r c o u x Beautiful!! What yarn did you make it with?
tanisfiberarts - Tanis Wow! Gorgeous. So wearable and comfy looking yet so neat with the perfect fit. Home run!
gregoriafibers - Anna It's so beautiful!! I have a lot of skin allergies and I'm always worried with my knitting
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @hellojuliaelise @wheretheheartis @tanisfiberarts thanks you guys!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @vmarcoux @gregoriafibers I'm usually a little itchy by the end of the day wearing wool next to my skin, but this HiKoo Rylie (alpaca/silk/linen blend) is wonderful! Expensive, but wonderful.
annaallenclothing - Anna McClurg Absolutely gorgeous @garmenthouse !!!
jennnatalia - Jenna Bentzen @taylerparkes 😍looook

sandyran - Sandra Reuston Happy belated birthday!
ctblack4 - Cheryl Black Yes, Happy late😘
barbgrwe - BarbaraGrilleyWeener Wonderful, every time you post a pic. of your knitting it inspires me to get busy with mine. Thank youπŸ‘πŸ‘ Beautiful yarn , what is it?
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @ctblack4 thank you friend! Please let me know the minute you land in town (if you're still coming out). I sure miss you!!!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @sandyran thank you! It was a hectic one, but still fun in all the craziness!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @barbgrwe thanks for saying it's inspiring since it's all I can seem to post about! This yarn is dreamy - HiKoo Rylie. It's expensive for me at least, I always just use what I have on hand and never buy the suggested yarn!
annasophielee - Ani Lee Loving your feed!
barbgrwe - BarbaraGrilleyWeener @garmenthouse , I do the same with the yarn. I use what I have on hand and make it work😜 if I can't get it to work then I usually don't make it, unless it's something REALLY special for one of my grand babes. Happiness to you and your family alwaysπŸ’•πŸ‘΅πŸ»
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - Warming up after a very cold bike ride.  Also, that knitting is about to get ripped because GAUGE.  This is about to get real.

marianne_sw - Marianne SW @garmenthouse are those H&M leggings? I went kinda crazy and bought stripy leggings, short and long sleeved bodysuits in every color there today...so soft
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - I have had the craziest stuff going on with my gauge lately, and I just can't figure it out.  I'll keep grabbing bigger and bigger needles and sometimes my gauge stays the same, sometimes it gets smaller!!! ??? Stress?  I've never had this happen before and I've been knitting through stress for years.  It's weird.  But at least the gauge swatches look nice together...

ladyiswearbyallflowers - Maybe some wrist / forearm / shoulder yoga is in order? Or a massage. Massage is always the answer.
linaquintero - Lina Quintero Gauge is the reason I don't knit. So good luck with that, I hope everything is going much better for you and your family.

phoebe.jar - Phoebe Haha I know, every time I think I've nailed gauge it gets me again
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - I'm just going to continue on with finishing all my unfinished knitting projects around the house since it's so satisfying!  This cabled pullover got thrown to the side when I got worried it was turning out too small.  I think I've found a clever way to salvage it though!

garmenthouse - garmenthouse You got it! I've converted it to be a pullover though so I changed the front quite a bit. @knitterly_things
wild_haven - wild_haven I'm working on Aidez as well right now! Will be interested to see your final modifications!
mariafordon - Maria Fordon I loved knitting that cardigan so much. The sizing is definitely wonky though. I still wear it anyway.
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - This qualifies as therapy, right? "Lalooooons" and wooly textures on baby feets!

erindando - Erin Dando I hope you realise how incredibly talented you are to be able to knit like that! It's beautiful.
jewelweedstextiles - jewelweeds Totally! Hope he's doing better!
kristienkahn - How's your bunny rabbit doing? He's got the cutest feet. Oh, Aidez...cast on for that like 4 years ago and never made it past the first couple inches.
hellojcasa - Jennifer Casa this makes me so happy. been keeping you in my thoughts this week! viva la knitting therapy!
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - I finished Doug's Classic "Brooks" sweater and gave it to him as an early Father's Day gift.  We've been through so much, and sometimes I can't believe we're still together!  I want to spend a lifetime knitting him things!  And also, now I'm suffering from finished object knitting withdrawal and am desperate to get something on the needles.  Anyone have some good patterns I should check out?

yote79 - Thanks for making this for me. It's some of your best work. I love you. By the way, nice saddle loop perl-over technique on the stitch ribbing raglans. (Did I say it right?)
mrsinsleyohana - Kate Insley It's gorgeous! I'm about to CO @dreareneeknits #yogashawl!!
clairedollan - claire it's perfect. what a sweet pair your are x
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @yote79 you're right on the money, hot stuff. The marriage jokes are wrong, you DO listen to me! I will say that no computer programmer I've ever met can figure out how to spell purl though. WHICH PEARLPERLPURL is it?!!!!!
chloealexahandmade - Chloe Lewis You're so good! So many sweaters! @garmenthouse As a knitter married to a computer programmer I have to say I'm very impressed with your knitting vocab @yote79
barbgrwe - BarbaraGrilleyWeener This is perfectly knitted. I thought it looked machine knitted , it's soo good!!! There are a lot of free patterns in all sorts of categories on the web site ravelry. com. It's a free site you just have to join. Really a wonderful, reputable site.
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @mrsinsleyohana oh, I love that one! And have you seen her newest chevron pattern shawl?! Wow, I think I've found the shawl I've always wanted to knit! Beautiful design as always @dreareneeknits !
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @chloealexahandmade @yote79 I honestly am, too! Saddle loop perl-over stitch ribbing raglans might be the formula to my million dollar sweater design!
