It’s Thanksgiving in the States, and I’m grateful for so many things, one of which is you guys!

I didn’t have much knitting, but I wanted you to know I was thinking about you today. I threw together the footage I took when I was experimenting with the dyes Louet sent me this summer as a little bonus episode.

There was a little bit of current knitting talk, too, at the end. Hope you enjoy!

Episode 108 – Shakers and Soapboxes

Watch Episode

I’m going on a mini-break this weekend, so quick show notes now! Project details can be found on my project pages!

FO: #everystitcheveryprayerforfru “Brave” socks

WIP: SPAKAL 2012 handspun sweater

Spinning: Dragonfly Fibers Polwarth/Silk – unknown weight, yardage – not even washed yet.

Soapbox: A public response to this editorail comment. Your pharmacist IS a doctor. Not an M.D., but a Pharm.D., and we’re here to help keep you safe. We’re all human, even your physician, and we can all make mistakes. (also: I now realize the author of this letter was a man. I kept saying “she.” Another adendum: If you only have one pharmacy, the pharmacist will have access to our entire prescriptions history and be better able to make judgement calls without calling the physician)

Shakers: here’s a link to the wikipedia article on them, if you want to learn. Here’s a link to the Pleasant Hill Shaker Village if you’re interested in seeing where we went!

Episode 107 – Pajama Party!

Watch Episode

This week, it was cold and I didn’t want to get out of my jammies. So I didn’t.

FO – Lace Swatch Wall Hanging – Yarns and patterns used are on the pattern page. Detailed pictures to come. Frame 9.99USD at TJ Maxx.

Spinning WIP – Firecracker Polwarth Roving from Dragonfly Fibers.

I drone on about the new Interweave Knits (Winter 2015) and my dislike for bobbles, but most things would be okay without them, and also that the one pattern I really liked, well, it’s knit end-to-end and kitchnered shut. So, no thanks.
