Hi all,

This episode we talk about how I've been knitting and finishing ALL THE THINGS! No, seriously, I only have one WIP right now and 5 FOs! How did that even happen?! 

I had a disaster of mediocre proportion and one of minor proportion. We revisit where I'm at on accomplishing my 2017 knitting plans and talk about how I think I've figured out the problem with my gauge. Maybe. And then my gratitude for this great craft.

Hi there,

In this episode I talk about my cast on and finish fest all in the name of Stashdash! The merits for me about participating in that type of thing and other contest/groups that have me churning out projects faster than ever, a potential failed project and some fun things I'm starting/trying.

Please come join me!

Welcome to the latest episode where we chat about finished objects, my remaining stashdash deficit, a bit of a yarn shop travelogue and I'm a bit at odds and ends for what precisely to cast on next:)  Please note that there is static for just a minute or two near the end of the first quarter of the episode, but I get it fixed almost immediately and it's clear the remainder of the episode :)

Enjoy!

Welcome to the latest episode where we chat about lots of progress, how much fun icording is and I give a quick review of some Oregon and Nevada yarn shops and purchases. I'm a little post-vacation punchy ;) You've been warned.

Hi all,

 

Welcome to my 16th episode. I have a finished object, and progress on a few projects after having had to frog (June was a very froggy month!).  I've also got a few acquisitions and an itch to start knitting some things for the holidays (Christmas in July Itch?).

Come have a listen!

Hi there!

In this episode, I finished some socks that are the cutest anklety anklets.  I'm appreciating the difference in speed of knitting a dk sweater versus worsted :(  I also chatter a bit about being helpful members of our knitting community and generous with our help for newbies and people trying to learn a new skill.

Enjoy the show.

Hi there!

In this episode, I finished a hat and a truly gorgeous sweater (I'm super satisfied with it!).  I've succumbed to another spring/summer cast on and generally am unwilling to knit on anything that isn't zingtastic on spring/summer color :)  I also chatter a bit about good friends, trips and the journey to getting comfy with being part of the knitting circle.

Hi there!

In this episode, I finished one sock (and finally worry about catching second sock syndrome), am about 20 minutes from finishing my Sockhead Slouch Hat. The Chuck is working out beautifully and we have a chat about being real and needing to let Springfest colors slide through your fingers as you create.

I also chatter a bit about good friends, trips and a doggy saga.

Hi there!

In this episode, I am relieved to have another pair of socks done--the palate cleanser. I talk about learning how to ladder down cable rows to add cables I forgot and switch directions when I've done it wrong. Ahem. And I chatter a bit about feeling a little directionless in my next knitting projects--except for the do rag ;).

Hi there!

In this episode, I am relieved to have a pair of socks done that are wearable (but still not perfect). I resurrect some previously languishing socks (with mistakes in them) and start a nice ribbed sock palate cleanser. I talk about a couple of other WIPs, my inability to accurately count rows, a delicious yarn store I visited when I was in Denver and some of the indie dyed skeins I brought home. Finally, I chat about my plans to avoid my annual spring hermitting.

Hi there!

In this episode, I positively gush over how beautiful my FO is. We talk about how great Susan B Anderson's Smooth Operator pattern is, some of my other WIPs and a languish anguish that will be picked back up likely before next episode. I search for some sympathy on science fair boards and tech that always fills up at the same time and my very complicated relationship with "perfection."

Hi there!

In this episode, we talk the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat--or a finished object and total frog.  We also chat about some WIPs I'm excited about, a languish anguish, a rant and a rave and some deep thoughts about how its important for me to remember that knitting is my joy and I get joy from the journey (unless I forget that focus).  It's also a lovely day as I podcast and I'm a little giddy from all of the fresh air.

Hi there in this episode, we talk about my WIPs (spice market is almost done!! and nerding out on yarnquest), my on deck cast-on-all-the-things desires, my visit from my long lost sewing mojo (and resulting gorgeous new knitting bags), a rant and a rave as well as some deep? thoughts on crafty competitors (and how odd that is). Throughout, I end up laughing at myself a lot. I guess I'm just not a take myself too seriously kind of girl!

Hi there in this episode, we talk about my latest finished objects (pixelated pullover!!!), my wips and getting my geek on (Yarn Quest MKAL anyone), the final round up of my truly gluttonous retail therapy with holiday cash, a rant and a rave as well as a fairly personal segment on why I feel like I can't actually knit all the things because of some recent body image issues that have cropped up. Not a downer, just an honest assessment. 

Please join me in my yarn gluttony celebration and get to know my deep thoughts about things that affect getting my yarn on! Show notes can be found at saltyjoknits.com
