Here's the latest episode where I talk about a finished object (my dislike of mosaic knitting!), a new cast on I might be a wee-bit obsessed about, a challenging holiday on deck list, some recent acquisitions, and a dodgy deep thought.

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.

In this episode, we talk about THREE! finished objects (with some stories), several new WIPs (I even blocked swatches, y'all) (with some stories), some retail therapy covering yarns ideal for summer tees and tanks, some languish anguish (with some stories) and rants and raves (with some stories).

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. Then we talk about an exciting new cast on and some new techniques, a book review and some new yarn. Give the episode a listen!

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!

Hi all,

In this episode, we chat about two at a time socks, my cowl options and yarn, some shawl thoughts, a little retail therapy combined with my love of wonderland yarns (not sponsored--my actual opinion) and prepping for the holidays.

Hi everyone. In this episode we chat about some fun finished things, some continued WIPs (and a new one that's making me wonder if I need a sanity test) and some considerations about what sweater pattern I should choose for myself. Also, I should wear more lipstick :)  Join me!

Hi,

Join me in this new episode where we talk about wee cute little knitted pumpkins, improving gauge, some cute new acquisitions and thoughts on the voluntary commercialization of our hobby.

Sep 17, 2017

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!

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.
