Episode 22: Progress!

Hello everyone! So I recorded this episode a while ago but never got around to editing and uploading it until now, oops… anyways writing the show notes is going to be a bit harder than usual this time since it’s been so long so I’m really sorry if I miss anything. But lets get down to it now, here’s the episode, there’s lots of progress to show this time at least so I hope it will have been worth the wait (next episode will probably have a lot too since its been so long between recording).

Episode X: 2016 Christmas Edition

Hello everyone! Welcome to a very special podcast episode this time, it’s the Christmas edition!!! I prerecorded this before I wrapped and gave all the gifts that I couldn’t show on the podcast in case the recipients would see them and now that they are all given I am releasing it. I’ve been bursting at the seams to share this since I have been keeping it all secret for what seems like ages so this seemed like a good way to share my thoughts but not give anything away.

This is also my first podcast recorded on my phone and edited with some new software and I am hoping that it will give a better quality podcast. Please let me know what you think of it and whether you think it is an improvement or not.

I think that that’s enough announcements for now so lets get to the show, I hope you enjoy it!

Hey everyone, I know I said last time that I was going to record more often and here I am now 3 months later finally out with a new episode but life has been so crazy lately I just haven’t been able to make a podcast. But I’m back again now so I hope you enjoy this week’s episode!

But I would love your opinion on which to knit!

I’m also thinking that I will knit some socks out of one of the Blue Brick Yarns gradient sock sets but I’m not sure which one yet (I have the long beach and labradorite colourways) or which colour I should put at the toes.

Busy Busy Busy 

I haven’t had much time to knit lately because life has been so busy, so I really don’t have anything to show you at the moment on that front. However, I do have something else to show you that I have been sneaking into the little gaps of time that might be interesting. Here’s a peak


It’s an adult colouring book!  This one is called Enchanted Forest by Johanna Basford but there are quite a few other really nice ones out there too. It’s actually super fun and really relaxing to work on and I’ve really been enjoying it. I think what I like so much about it is the creative aspect of being able to choose the colours of drawing but without the stress of stuff not looking the way you intend it to (because I’m really just no good at drawing).

It takes me quite a while to finish each page as I colour very carefully and I do it in small stints but it’s kinda cool looking at a picture come to life day by day so I don’t mind at all. This one will probably be done in a few days more.

I hope this was at least mildly interesting, hopefully soon I’ll have something substantial on the needles again that I can share and get back to regular content posts.
