Episode 157 – Sweaters and SAFF


So, today I ramble on about my works in progress (knitting AND spinning, ladies and gentlemen!!), SAFF and my acquisitions, a rare breed, and some thoughts about…. sweaters. Also, I decide during this half hour that I am going to extend the Fade into Fall until the end of the month. Mainly because I would really like the motivation to finish my So, Faded this month. As usual, all information about projects can be found on my project pages.

Episode 126 – Knittin’ in the Mommy-hood


Pretty lengthy episode, with an appearance by my new production assistant and birth story at the end in case you’re interested!

FO – Piper’s Journey

WIP – Fizzy socks, Fruju Wild Goose, Zoe

Spinning – two skeins of shetland (one grey, one dark brown) to make a Bolt

Acquisitions at SAFF from Interlacements (the row counter), jazzturtle creations, twist fiber studio, wolle’s yarn creations. Not shown: mug by Pawley Studios. Paralysis by analysis caused by Gerschubie fiber arts and Alisha goes Around.

That pattern from IW Knits is MacGowan Pullover

Episode 124- Short and Sweet!


Not much to say today!

FO – Parisian Origami – pattern Origami Scarf, model with a Spiral Cat Studios shawl pin.

WIP – Baby Soft Blanket – pattern available at LYSes only, mentioned picking back up the Hitofude

Spinning – nonexistent, but talked about putting some Nerd Girl fiber on the wheel (thanks sillyfru!) or maybe preparing to knit Bolt by spinning some natural shetland.

Acquisitions – was gifted a blending board (thanks again sillyfru!] and am considering putting some fiber and angelina from Gale’s Art on it to play around. Also received some Two If By Hand fiber in Lola’s Dino colorway (thanks, craftieallie!).
