Oh to be in Shetland again! If you get a chance to go to Shetland whether for Shetland Wool Week in September or at another time of the year seize it! Not only is there an amazing heritage of wool ...
Love these 'non-traditional Fairisle' scarves on display on Bressay during Shetland Wool Week 2017. They are designed by a textile student at Shetland College @r.a.m.knitwear

This week’s #tuesdaytip is not directly about Stitchmastery but we have shared a guest blog from @katieblairmatthews on photographing knitwear (it was originally commissioned for @knitmastery so you may have read it already if you follow us there too). The ...

Knitty Winter 2017 is out! With lots of Stitchmastery charts 😍. I love these socks by @kinoknits and the mosaic lace poncho by @tumpedduck . Yes you can easily combine mosaic and lace in a Stitchmastery chart.

Sheep breed cushion nearly finished. I'm using up the leftovers from the Woolly Vivid blanket that I made for @knit_british a couple of years ago.
Also, it's chequered pale/dark and is 8x8 so will double up for chess and draughts ...
If you are working with a tech editor, or setting up Stitchmastery on a second machine, you might need to send your stitch library file to someone. This is your user library containing any custom stitches you’ve made. If you ...
Making plans this morning, @bristolivy’s new book arrived a couple of weeks ago and has some beautiful patterns & explores lots of great techniques. Sharman is a definite favourite! #stitchmasterycharts #newpattern #knittingpattern #strikking #igknitters #pompommag #patternfocus
I won some yarn! And not just any yarn - Devonia from @johnarbontextiles Thank you to Jo and Mica of @edinyarnfest for organising the Wool Tribe party and for @johnarbontextiles for donating the prize.

There’s a new post on our blog all about the files associated with Stitchmastery (do you know the difference between a .knt2, a .smlib and a .png?), how to work out where you saved them (and advising you on where ...
Final day of #wovemberinstachallenge and the prompt is #woolpeople, which is very appropriate given today we visited @kariebookish’s launch of This Thing of Paper (complete with Stitchmastery charts ☺️) at Kathy’s Knits in Edinburgh. A very fine example of a ...
Did you know you can export your chart and key as separate images to use in your final designs? And if you want to display your key differently, you can export each stitch & definition as separate images and rearrange ...
Toying with the idea of knitting a Sasha Kagan Scottie dog waistcoat. Probably just black dogs with different coloured colours in duplicate stitch.

Day 21: journey. I learnt to knit as a young child but sadly do not have the craft books that I learnt with. As a teenager I expanded my knowledge with more books. There are not many charts in these ...
Day 20: breed. Shetland sheep ❤️❤️😍. Featured here is a rams and yowes blanket knit in Shetland supreme from @thewoolbrokers , a Bousta beanie knit in organic Shetland jumperweight from @uradale_yarn and an almost complete St Brigid knit in Soft ...
Today on the Stitchmastery blog - the first in a two-parter from @kateatherleyknits on finding repeats in a chart and in written instructions - and some things to consider if the most straightforward versions of both don’t match. Click the ...
Day 19: play. Stranded colourwork = play. The hat is by Kate Heppell. I was particularly drawn to this design as my step-father's name was Brockman. Brock is another name for badger. The fingerless mitts were the result of playing ...
Day 18: family. One of my crazy kids wanted to knit herself a mermaid tail blanket to keep warm in her student flat. There are hundreds of patterns on Ravelry but she didn't like a single one. She knew what ...
#wovemberinstachallenge theme is source today - @pompommag and @ribmagazine are great pattern sources, using Stitchmastery charts! #wearwooleveryday #pompommag #ribmagazine #knittingpattern #patterninspiration #knittinginspiration
Day 17: layer. The layer of strands at the back of stranded knitting makes the fabric extra warm. Plus it looks ❤️❤️❤️. Contemplating knitting a fair-isle sweater inside-out.

Day 16: socks. Fraternal socks for the win! Especially for those times when you don't have enough of one colour to make a matching pair.
