Instagram photo by garmenthouse - Another sweater off the needles - Garment House Baby Plowline knit in beautiful Cestari Blue Denim Heather 100% Wool.  I love this yarn so much, I went back and bought all my local yarn shop had (only five skeins). Besides the occasional twig, it's pretty soft for a wool!

marthakate_ - martha Elly this is gorgeous!
jewelweedstextiles - jewelweeds Love it. Are you going to release this as a pattern?
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @doreshandmade @marthakate_ thank you both! @jewelweedstextiles thank you! Oh man, I wish! I'd love to release this pattern since I know it like the back of my hand, but there's a serious lack of time and we just got word there's going to be even less of it. Shifting my priorities and knitting through the stress will do for now! I hope people don't get bored having to wait, but this stuff is more important anyway.
jewelweedstextiles - jewelweeds T o t a l l y understand. Taking care of yourself/family is so so much more important! Thank god for knitting during stress! Don't know how non knitters cope!

emilywerner - emily werner Mother-Son slippers!! Love it.
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @emilywerner @hellodarling_handmade they are truly the best! I keep wearing through my Padraigs! I'm willing to let them sponsor my chair sitting/knitting training.
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @gingerly.crafted thank you!
emilywerner - emily werner @garmenthouse do you have a good source? Or do you order them online?

oregonienne - oregonienne It's never too early for fika. 😉
kristintidd - Kristin as they say, it's fika time somewhere. right, people say that?...
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @fil.eva thank you - the blue is Cestari 100% Wool in Denim Heather, and the gray/natural is Cascade Eco Wool.
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @oregonienne I'm gonna go with you on this. Another question: when is it too LATE for fika? Alldayfika.
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @kristintidd 😂😂😂😂 I'm pretty sure I've heard that, yes. It's Fika O'clock!
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - Open floor plans make naptime a challenge.  Forced out of the house, but I'm thankful for nice weather + the smell of ribs being smoked by the master on the grill!  Mmmm...

sbeemakes - Stephanie @garmenthouse I'm beginning to think you live in a well styled magazine!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @sbeemakes oh man, never be deceived by my Instagram feed! It's so one dimensional. I'd love to be more transparent, but that's hard to do when privacy and boundaries are a good thing too.
sbeemakes - Stephanie @garmenthouse oh yes, I hear you! Inspiring & overwhelming, this social media thang.. I probably wouldn't post the dinner of about 20 mozzarella sticks i just had. Not organic either.. the shame…PS, hoping you are in good health!
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - Doh!  Not again... Whyyyyyy!!!! Time to find a color that doesn't make this another obvious "I ran out of yarn" sweater. 😭

hellodarling_handmade - hello, darling Oh no!! I've definitely been there!
thecraftsessions - Felicia Semple Looks like you need to knit a bit faster 😉. I've heard you use less yarn that way. Good luck!
barbgrwe - BarbaraGrilleyWeener Is this the wallaby sweater? Will there be a hood? If there is a hood, I would do the hood in a solid navy or red, rather than trying to match yarns.
karentempler - karentempler I'm not laughing, honest
bispeterson - bispeterson Purple. For sure.
mlettini - Matthew Lettini I want a sweater with that design
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - First time knitting in a while.  You know things are stressful and busy when there's no time to knit.

bispeterson - bispeterson You're so awesome, Elly! I'm sorry it's been stressful. xoxo @garmenthouse
thrifty_hippie - Yvonne Etsy:RiversideHandmade True! If I haven't knit in a few days I start to feel it in my body. Does that make sense? This year I've included it in my mission to do more self care. So far I've knit everyday even if it's 1 round or row. ❤️❤️❤️I hope you have more time to knit soon.
debbieanncohen - Debbie Cohen Yep! Knitting is the first thing to go when it's stressful around here, but yet the best stress reliever! Love that yarn you are using.
barbgrwe - BarbaraGrilleyWeener Is this the wonderful Wallaby?? Love the yarn 😊
jewelweedstextiles - jewelweeds Amen. Beautiful colors though! Hope things get sorted for you.
marmelade666 - Rita Beautiful yarn! Have no time to knit either because of my 1 yr old
fil.eva - Great yarn. What is it?
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - Ok guys, I'm going for it!  Aidez is getting turned into a pullover!  I'm incorporating my favorite cable stitches to the front to switch things up!  It's been fun and fast, since I had forgotten my cable needle back home and had to figure out how to do the honeycomb and seed stitch wishbone without it.  How many of you do cables without a needle?

andreatotallyrules - Andréa Rules I just use a spare DPN for cabling
teeheewithmee - Jamie T I love cabling without a needle! It makes things so much faster and that's one less thing I have to carry in my knitting kit.
elenalgold - @garmenthouse oh yeah, I never use a cable needle. Esp for honeycomb! So much faster without. :)
sarahjanegaines - Sarah Neiger Gaines That honeycomb is gorgeous!
nashandrusso - stephanie nash Break free of the cable needle, totally unnecessary for most cables!
bishpaasch - Trent & Rachel That's me! I've been knitting Rowe without a cable needle and its sped me up tremendously!!!
jordol - jordo I do, especially honeycomb!!
miepcadex - miepcadex Eeeek! This post gave me butterflies! I have cabled without only much the same way. Usually I put it in my hair and forget. Sad Truth.
Instagram photo by garmenthouse - I finished the back of Aidez, and thankfully remembered to lengthen the raglan this time.  I'm wondering if I should make this one a pullover, or possibly steek the front...

vmarcoux - m a r c o u x Oh I bet a pullover would be great! I knit Aidez a few years ago and the fronts just don't feel wide enough for me. I would love it as a cozy pullover!!!
miepcadex - miepcadex I have this sweater on the needles unfinished. The idea of pullover sounds like a concept that could push me to finish. Share your notes. Super curious about this news.
thecraftsessions - Felicia Semple So pretty - the yarn looks lush!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @bispeterson @baileymwolf 😂😂 and that's a hard thing to do!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @vmarcoux @miepcadex now you've got me seriously thinking about that pullover idea!!
garmenthouse - garmenthouse @gingerly.crafted @thecraftsessions thanks you two!
