Just a little ditty of me while I create my own design inspired by Jar Jar Binks. I am pretty excited about it! It's a new step in knitting for me. I am currently almost halfway there! Using my all time favourite knitting needles! P.s. look at that #breatheyogabag in the background pattern by @purlpassion which releases August 1st! . . . #myfirstdesign #knithoodie #knitscarf #jarjarbinks #rebelalliance #knitdesigner #fiberartist #slowfashion #sharewithmary #knitoholic #disabledknitter #knitwithvee #shedden #stthomasontario #motivation #pushyourself #yarnporn #diversknitty #tattooedknitter #scarfknits #knitsofinstagram #knitpatterns #yarnbenders #ontheflex #flexknitneedles @flexknitneedles

This is progress! It is also the Wrong Side of my scarf. I am currently making a pattern & learning a lot about myself. I started this scarf on circular needles just to try, but I really needed my @flexknitneedles . I am going to get as many stitches these straight needles before moving back to the circular for sanity & pain sake! I am very excited to start designing & am very grateful to all  on here who have given me the extra pushes.  Each comment & direct message really proves that I have some creativity to share!!! Side note: I am using my only 4mm Flex Knit needles so I need to finish this before Tuesday since I am using them for my videos. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ . . . . . . #motivation #inspiration #determination #warrior #disabledknitter #knitwithvee #personalgrowth #designer #slowfashion #slowfashionmovement #diversknitty #knitoholic #yarnporn #knitpatterns #knitdesigner #knitscarf #scarfknits #knittersofinstagram #sharewithmary #woodlands #woodlandsyarn #shedden #marymaxim @marymaximofficial

Sunday progress! My "Aloopy" Unicorn Shawl. A random pattern I put together since I am trying to expand my creating skills. .

β™‘β™‘Reintroduction time!β™‘β™‘ It's me, @knitvee , aka Vanessa. I am from Shedden, a hamlet in Ontario, with my Spouse, Phil. I have been knitting for over 3 years, self taught. I started to knit as a form of creativity, art, & to release emotions. I never wanted to go through life & feel I wasted my brain & talent since I am unable to work. β™‘ I am physically disabled from an autoimmune disease called Vasculitis.  I was diagnosed with Polyarteris Nodosa in July 2010 (symptoms of disease started 9 months prior), resulting in permanent nerve damage mainly in my hands & feet, but it also effected my entire body. When I was 13 years old I was diagnosed with anxiety & depression. Both are currently in remission. β™‘ I have always been someone who went to the Arts in order to express myself. Knitting has allowed me to prove to myself I am capable of making amazing things. It has shown me a new level of patience. A lot of my knitting wouldn't be possible if I didn't find @flexknitneedles , with my dexterity problems, these knitting needles have been able to help me to expand my knitting skills. Because of this, my thought process has changed from "I can't" to "What do I have to lose?". People always say they want to knit, what do you have to lose? I've learned so much in the last 3 years, than in the 10 before that! β™‘ Mostly, it has opened up a world on Instagram for me to share my creations. Thank you to all of my friends & supporters on here, you make a gal feel real special! β™‘ Follow the hashtag tags I use! #knitwithvee #disabledknitter #flexknitneedles #yarnbenders @yarnbendingdames
"B", "B", YOU GOT YOUR "B", YOU GOT YOUR "B"! Duplicate stitch?!?! Add that to the list of firsts for me on this #breatheyogabag #testknit by @purlpassion . Oh, and that is a "R" starting too!

When your current #wip is inspired by @aloopypanda (@evavangel ) . Colour combo is inspired by his hair colours, the shawl pattern, inspired by one of his current #wipwednesday . Everything about making this shawl has purposely pushed my level of patience. I am loving every second of it. If you can teach yourself the hard things, you're living too easy!πŸ˜‚ . . . . . #determination #willpower #spoonie #knittersofinstagram #yarn #knitwithvee #disabledknitter #unicorn #knitoholic #yarnbenders #diversknitty #slowfashion #knitshawl #handknits #madewithlove #unicorncloudyarn #unicornyarn #babymandala #patience #lionbrandyarn #yarnporn #yarnit

Today's scheduled knit tutorial has been replaced due to a very awesome package arriving.  A while back I came across @birchdyeworks Prismatic Indigo & fell in love! Her yarn is all just so beautiful! I also follow @fittsjenn who has some crazy amazing art skills. We've become a little something called friends. If you aren't following these two inspiring women, you should start!  Anywho because @fittsjenn is so thoughtful she sent me a surprise yarn package! If you can't tell I love it. I appreciate this gift so much. Acts of kindness warm my heart so much! So thank you from the bottom of my heart Jenn! I can't wait to create! . .  #yarnporn #yarnlife #surpriseyarnpackage #birchdyeworks #disabledknitter #diversknitty #knitoholic #knitwithvee #yarnbenders #wool #handdyewool #colorway #prismaticindigo #yarn #knitter #slowfashion
Honestly! This thing must weight 10 pounds! It's the most amazing thing I have ever completed! It's an anxiety blanket! I've suffered from anxiety & depression for 21 years (diagnosed, since age 13). So I am always trying to find the best remedies. I used all old scrap yarn mostly using 5 different yarns at once. I have been using it for the past few nights & I am in love! The different colour blends to grab your focus, it instantly warmed me. I am definitely feeling my handmade love! . . . . . . #nowaste #zerowaste #anxietyblanket #anxiety #depression #knits #knitblanket #knitwithvee #disabledknitter #spoonie #yarnit #yarnaddiction #slowfashion #blanket #shedden #yarnbenders #diversknitty #knittersofinstagram @yarnbendingdames #stthomasontario
Reusable cup cozies! From balls of Bernat Handicrafter to knitted pieces of art! These were fun & quick to make to break up my other #wips .

Success is only what you make it! There are many words to describe me. Determined is definitely up there. Yesterday's knit was from the purple stitch marker up, it was the largest part of the shawl & I am proud to say I am pleased! One more day of knitting will hopefully finish this beauty up! . . . . #determination #willpower #spoonie #knittersofinstagram #yarn #pheonixyarn #bernatyarn #sharewithmary #knitoholic #yarnbenders #diversknitty #slowfashion #knitshawl #handknits #madewithlove #deepdive #mua #cableknit #bobble #redyarn
I am hoping to crush most of this today. I will be on the descending side before too long!  It took me 6 inches into the Shawl to have the pattern memorized.  In another 15 additional stitches, that pattern changes lol. I find knitting is a good tester for patience,  memory, & math! Along with many other things! . . . . . . . . .  #knitters #knitwithvee #disabledknitter #friyay #motivation #chronicpain #nervedamage #mentalhealth #diversknitty #patience #memory #mathematics #math #knit #handknits #yarnporn #shawl #knittedshawl #friday #summer19 #keepcool #coffee #sharewithmary #yarnbenders
This has to be my favourite shawl to date! Its light, pretty, & huge! . A little blend of Canadian & American colours for Monday & Today! . . .  I used many different yarns for this. I started the shawl on 4.5mm @flexknitneedles until it was too big, then moved to a circular needle. When I start pieces that require circular needles, I do my best to start the project on the Flex Knit Needles since they work better with my dexterity & small things! . . . . #bernatyarn #bernatpremium #flexknitneedles #knitwithvee #shedden #canadaday #summer19 #shawl #4thofjuly #knitshawl #knittedshawl #handknits #yarnporn #yarnbenders #yarnlife #fiberartist #slowfashion #diversknitty #disabledknitter #artist #bohostyle #handmade #yarn #knit
This shawl was made using 2 rolls of Bernat Pop! Shes a big soft shawl that is also light, but warm at the same time! I took apart the yarn cakes & changed the order of the colours when making this. I enjoy the colours in yarn cakes, just sometimes I like them in another order, & that's okay! . . . . . . . . #bernatpop #yarncake #bernatyarn #knitwithvee #shedden #canadaday #summer19 #shawl #knitshawl #knittedshawl #handknits #yarnporn #yarnbenders #yarnlife #fiberartist #slowfashion #diversknitty #verigatedyarn #shop519 #artist #lovelife #handmade #yarn
This colour combination was off the cuff. I had some left over Bernat Pop & when I ran out, I added the Sage Green to finish off the piece. My little backyard corner was the perfect place to take these photos! . . . . . . #rustic #handknits #slowfashion #selfishknits #knitshawl #yarnporn #bernatpop #diversknitty #knitwithvee #redheartyarn #stripes #bernatyarn #yarnbenders #shawl #knit #designer #knittersgonnaknit #shedden #sharewithmary #handmade
Something about this combination spoke to me. I feel like Harley agrees. The shawl is super light weight & brightens the day!  Great start to a long weekend! I hope everyone stays safe on the roads, allows space & time for tractors trying to get to robot fields, but mostly have fun! . . . . #friyay #motivation #handknits #slowfashion #selfishknits #knitshawl #yarnporn #diversity #diversknitty #knitwithvee #feathers #stripes #bernatyarn #yarnbenders #yarnspirations #knit #designer #vasculitis #shedden #sharewithmary
Some outdoors knitting from last week! I am currently working on a very thick, weighted blanket. To make the blanket, I am using 5 or 6 different strands of yarn, making individual panels & sewing them together. I decided to make the blanket in smaller parts to prevent strain, & repetition. But please enjoy the sounds of the country! . . . #stthomasproud #stthomasontario #lndnont #portstanley #southwoldtownship #shedden
Made two of the Sprout hats for a custom order for a really inspiring woman! She's living a dream of mine & I know shes going to Spike it to the Top! Hope you love them @_allycarr_ !! . Thank you for supporting my passion! . These were absolutely fun to make. I mixed 4 colours of yarn together in order to make this stunning combo! . Yarn: Bernat Premium in 1x Robin's Egg, 2x  Baby Blue, 1x BabyLuv; Baby Blue Needles: 6.5mm @flexknitneedles to start and 6.5 circular needles to finish end. . . . #beyourself #sprout #knitwear #beanies #babybeanies #knitbeanie #bernatyarn #yarnbenders #bernatyarn #sharewithmary #knitwithvee #custom #knitwear #chronicpain #shedden #slowfashion #passion #creative
Extra rolls of rando yarn, inspired by all the beautiful shawls, turned last Monday into Purple Haze. Started this early Monday morning & it was completed by bedtime! Its fun to pick up random quick projects. It breaks up your regular routine. Spice up your knitting!  Started on the @flexknitneedles since my dexterity doesn't like the first couple rounds on circular needles.
Here they are! The I Scream, You Scream, Ice Cream Sisters! Picture 1- Front View Picture 2- Back View . These were so much fun to make! . The pattern used was the Garter Stitch Tank, using a Waffle pattern, instead of the Garter. One shirt was made on 5.5mm @flexknitneedles & the second was made with 5.5mm circular needles.
When you can't find a pattern, so you wing it & think they are cute as heck! Love what you do, but most of all love yourself! Toddler Sprout hats!  My mom laughed & said "why the nubby?!", I said "why not??!". #creativeminds  Made this video the other day, please give this little ditty some love or emojis!!! Yarn: #bernatblanket  Needles: 6.5mm @flexknitneedles and 6.5 circular needles. . . . . . . #beyourself #bodypositive #knitwear #beanies #babybeanies #toddler #bernatyarn #yarnbenders #yarnspirations #sharewithmary #knitwithvee #disabledknitter #shop519 #shedden #slowfashion #stthomasontario #lndnont #bodypositive
