Exciting news: Handmade by Kunbi X Wool is the Answer

Hey lovelies! How have you been? I haven’t blogged in a little while and what perfect timing to do so ‘cos I have some exciting news to share! Yaay!

In June this year, I had the opportunity to exhibit at The Wool Monty Show as a featured designer. It was there that I met the amazing duo (Marie and Dominique) of Wool is the Answer. Their stand was behind mine (sorta) and we got chatting – I liked them both instantly!

During the course of the show, Marie and Dominique approached me about designing a crochet shawl for them as they had been thinking about expanding their range of patterns to include crochet as well. I pretty much said yes as I wanted to work with these awesome ladies. We exchanged details and we carried on with our discussion after we returned to our different bases. As they say, the rest is history and The Call me Rosie crochet shawl pattern was born…cue yaaaay!! Here’s Marie and Dominique, on the latest Wool is the Answer podcast, introducing the shawl and giving a quick background story of how we met, etc.

Wool is the Answer Ep 14 Crochet patterns, new projects and pottery surprises!

The Call me Rosie Shawl pattern is available to purchase on the Wool is the Answer website on its own or as a kit in Paradise Sunset and Purple Rain (used in the sample pictured below) and in Peacock and Purple Rain, so head on over there and grab yourself the pattern or the kit. The pattern calls for DK yarn, is totally fun to make and you would love rocking your shawl when you’re done as it’s stylish and can pretty much be worn for any occasion.

Have a great weekend, friends!

Blessings,

Here’s another pattern that was supposed to drop in 2022 but sadly didn’t. I’m hoping 2024 is the year 🤞🏽🤞🏽. At this rate, I may have three or four test knits going at the same time 😳😳.

This was mega fun to knit and I love 😍😍 that the stitch pattern looks like a crochet stitch 🙌🏽🙌🏽.

🌟Don’t ever let self doubt hold you back from progressing 🌟.

- Believe in yourself and your skills/abilities. 

- Be kind to yourself and be constructive when self doubt sets in. 

- Talk about your fears with at least someone in your close circle of friends. 

- Set specific goals and put in the time, planning and effort required to move ahead. 

- Fight the fear, you are more than capable 🙌🏽.

Still an absolute fave 😍😍😍. I designed this beautiful baby blanket when I was pregnant with baby number 2 and I used it a lot when she was a baby 👶🏽. Also used it for baby number 3.

🌟I have to remind myself this, always!

Starting over might feel scary, but remember that you’re not starting from nothing. You’ve already been through a lot and learned valuable lessons along the way. Use that experience to your advantage. 

It’s like building on a strong foundation instead of starting from scratch. Embrace this new beginning with confidence, knowing that you have what it takes to progress. Don’t let fear hold you back from pursuing your dreams. Every fresh start is a chance to grow and become even better than before.

🌟So many benefits from indulging in knitting and/or crocheting🌟.

1️⃣ Stress reduction: Both activities promote relaxation and can serve as a form of stress relief due to their repetitive and rhythmic motions.

2️⃣ Creative expression: Knitting and crochet allow for endless creativity through choosing yarns, patterns, stitches, and designs.

3️⃣ Mindfulness: Engaging in either craft encourages mindfulness by focusing attention on the present moment and the tactile sensations of the materials and tools.

4️⃣ Cognitive stimulation: Following patterns, counting stitches, and manipulating yarn and needles/hooks can enhance cognitive function, including memory, concentration, and problem-solving skills.

5️⃣ Sense of accomplishment: Completing a knitting or crochet project provides a tangible sense of achievement and boosts self-esteem.

6️⃣ Fine motor skills: The intricate hand movements required in both knitting and crochet can improve dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and finger strength.

7️⃣ Therapeutic benefits: Both crafts have been shown to have therapeutic effects, aiding in managing chronic pain, alleviating symptoms of anxiety and depression, and promoting overall well-being.
