NEW pomegranate pattern on VIDEO

You couldn't guess, but I was planing the production of my pomegranate wire crochet video pattern for ages....
Almost ever since I produced my first video tutorial I wanted to create one for my poms.

But since I still have so many designs that don't have neither a PDF pattern nor a video , it was always pushed to the bottom of the list.

The trigger for this video was my NEW ISK starters set , people were asking if the pomegranates could be prepared with it, and if yes , then how ?
My largest ISK starer has 40 loops , and the pomegranate pattern is 40 .....  video is so eeasy in explaining new things, so I filmed a short video explaining how  to turn 40 loops into 56,  and how does this turn into a pomegranate...

One thing led to another and I'm now super happy to introduce a NEW PDF pattern and a brand new VIDEO tutorial.

It explains in detail , both how to create a pom with the ISK starter but also without it, so its not compulsory only a "very nice to have help" :)
It was important for me to keep enabling people to buy my patterns and receive them online or via email.

Can anyone guess what is the next pattern I'm going to publish ? ......
not telling, its a surprise !

Eclipse, when industrial design meets wire knitting

You must be asking yourself what does eclipse has to do with it ,
well, I was looking for a visual image that reflects something that doesn't happen very often , and combines day and night.

but what I really want to tell you is the story how my ISK starters were born.
as an industrial designe, and especially a very inventive one, I just couldn't resist the urge
to develop dedicated tools for my my ISK wire knitting.

The live workshops I run, together with my worldwide online students, helped me focus at what would really bring a change and help everyone grab the ISK technique even more easily the before.

My hubby (which is also my partner) and I, have been playing with the idea for more then a
year now, no, I couldn't convince him to try wire knitting, but I did manage to drag him into participating in the design and the production.

We took advantage of our skills as industrial designers, and did for our selves what we do on a daily basis for
our clients (on our design firm) , we came up with a simple and practical solution,
a product that will enable my students, both the local ones and the ones spread worldwide, to easily start wire ISK knitting projects.

We went through all the design stages, prepared 3D mechanical files on the computer, produced STL models to experiment with it for real, to learn how comfortable it is, does it actually make the ISKnitter life more fun and easy.

We went through a phase of adjustments , and when we were happy with the result, we had to examine it business wise. I must admit I'm not a big fan of excel charts but there was just no going around.

When we finalized tweaking the numbers and saw this whole start-up can make sense, and we can actually offer it in a reasonable price,  we decided to jump to deep waters and make the investment.

I dont know how many of you know, but plastic parts demand extremely expensive investment in tooling , and we didnt want the product to be too pricy, we wanted it to be affordable and an easy purchase for all the wire knitters in the world :)

We launched the ISK starter set mid April , and shipped out by now quite a few, but what is more important is that the first feedbacks have already started flowing in , and they are so warm and exciting. People that were struggling are now reporting that the ISK starters have actually change their experience into an even better one.
Some even point out advantages we weren't aware of :) like how easy it is now to know exactly how many stitches you have on your base..... no more mistakes when counting :)

"I have received the Starter Kit and I love it!  I have just begun to make some of your jewelry.  My first cuff was a disaster because my base wasn't as accurate as I had hoped.  With the starter kit, the video and written directions, I was successful in making my first pair of earrings.
Thanks so much for developing the starter kit.  It makes a great deal of difference in my final results."
"I just finished my first pair of sunflower earrings and am wearing them.  I just love your designs.  So different and classic!"
so if you are an ISK knitter and want to skip the base preparation part, and start straight on with knitting your item , dont think long....

and if you are not yet an ISK knitter there is no better time to start then now !!!

The ISK starters set is for sale on my etsy shop for only 24$ .

Handmade wedding, bridal jewelry by Yoola

A couple of months ago I received a surprising request,
"can you knit me a set of a bracelet and a matching belt  for my wedding dress ? "
surprising , isn't it ?

I must admit , I thought to myself, is she serious ? this is going to cost her a fortune for me to knit her a belt...and for me to take days, I was obviously thinking on my own measures.... :)

When I had a second look at her request and noticed her size, I realized this may actually be feasible.

Did I mention I love custom orders ? they sometimes take me to places I would have never gone on my own, its like an adventure, its not that i take everyone crossing my path, but this one i did take and I'm happy i did.

One thing led to another and both the belt and the bracelet found their way to far away Australia (which apparently has superb post services, deliveries make it there with no time).

As the wedding plans went forward I was also happy to prepare gold bangle bracelets for the bridesmaids, and a set of a  faux pendant necklace and matching faux pearl earrings for the bride.

What a fingerprint on a wedding of people I never met, and probably never will.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was to see the artistic wedding photos , i selected just a few so you can enjoy them too.
