New Series – My Favourite Things!

I thought I’d start a new series here on the Mostly Knitting (but really all sorts of crafts) Blog and feature some of my favourite things. These things might be YouTube channels, products, classes, blogs, books, whatever takes my fancy.

Today I’d like to feature one of my favourite YouTube channels, “Rose World” from India.

Rose World has only been on YouTube for just over two years, but already has a following of over 260,000 subscribers. The videos are high quality, not language dependent, colourful and inventive.

From the channel description:

In This channel I’m sharing How to stitch, Hand embroidery, Basic Hand Embroidery, Nokshi Embroidery, Nakshi kantha, Neck design, drawing tutorial, etc Video.

I found out about Rose World when this video popped up in my recommended list:

I’m currently playing with the big loopy woven parts on an embroidery sampler.

Various woven embroidery stitches on a background of dyed woollen blanket.
A tiny corner of my current embroidery sampler – woven stitches.

I’m going to try them in different threads, including needlepoint wool and see how they look.

Rose World also has quite a few videos on making yarn flowers that can be sewn or stuck onto any project. This marigold is one of them.

Traditional nakshi kantha like these borders. I adore nakshi kantha borders 🙂

and modern designs like this flower

Rose World not only has all of these things, but also videos for beginner embroiderers, and instructions on drawing designs so you can customise them any way you like.

I hope you enjoy the Rose World YouTube channel as much as I do. Grab a cup of tea (or your chosen beverage), and check it out!

Flowers, Weird Gardens and My Cute Kid :)

My little Charlie really loves Doctor Who, Chameleon Circuit (and his sister).
Here’s a video his sister made combines all those things in one. I cried with the laughing at the cuteness but that may just be because I’m his Mum. Or maybe not. I especially like the bit near the end. New lyrics, yay! 🙂

Here’s the video he’s watching. An Awful Lot of Running by Chameleon Circuit.

But wait, there’s more!

This week’s flower loom tutorial is all about the twirl centre. This style of centre can be made on any flower, any shape, size, or material. I hope you like it. I have about another 110 flower loom videos to go 🙂

I had to learn some new techniques to make the intro more interesting, so I practiced some of them in an animation that I call “Strange Garden”. It’s a simple piece made with images and footage that I had on my computer but I had a lot of fun with it and will probably make more in the future (with better graphics and a storyline and everything!)

Tomorrow, more cooking!

Another Special Request Video – The African Flower Motif

How to crochet the African flower motif with a loomed flower centre.

This week’s video is a response to a request from a member of Ravelry. It was such a fun challenge that I couldn’t resist (and a great excuse to buy a flower loom I didn’t have in my collection)!

You can make the centre flower in any style you like. I hope to see people making lots of different variations 🙂
