Hi all,

In this episode we talk about two sock yarns I'm in love with, a total tangent about craft room cuddliness, having WIPS staring me in the face and thinking about some work/life balance - or total overhaul :)

This week, I have 2 new FOs, 2 older FOs, 2 WIPS, 2... ok, wait, not 2 more of anything :) a spirited discussion about gauge swatches and blocking and a deep thought on my evolution of what really is self-care.

Hope you enjoy!

This week we talk about two tank tops: one knit and one crochet, and another hair kerchief. We also take a moment to see what i planned to learn and do with my knitting for 2018 and see how I'm doing against that plan. Finally, I wax a little nostalgic for slow, country-mouse summers and gardening.

Hi all,

Welcome to my latest episode where we talk about a series of unfortunate events! All related to my lack of fastidiousness in following instructions/noting where I am. Sigh. We've all been there.

Whew! What a knitting year folks. Let's talk a little about a couple of challenges I am working through on WIPS and then look back at whether my planification and how that went. I also tallied up how much I started and finished. Whoa! Then a philosophical discussion on what stash means to me, my habits and what, if anything needs to change. Finally a quick review of my experience with the HPKCHC :) 

Enjoy

Hi all,

I've finally had a moment to catch my breath and catch up with all of you! In this episode, we chat about a bunch of finished objects, how I'm finding that I can't have just one type of knit all the things needles, how to be super picky about winding yarn for self-striping socks and my findings on which retail establishments that I buy from have good turkey day and weekend sales... research, for science, you're welcome :)

Hi all,

Can you believe it's already been a year? I can't. Good grief that was fast--and rather satisfying. In this episode, I reflect a little on why I started podcasting and whether I've gotten out of it what I had hoped. And then I turn to yarny content with several finished objects and works in progress as well as an explanation of why my chaos is getting a little out of hand ;)

Enjoy the show!
