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!

Episode 15: Back Again

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!

None this time since all of what I am working on is secret Christmas knitting for people who might see it here.

FOs

Advent, Advent Socks

Four hats not knit from a pattern (sometimes inspired by other things though, for example the Stitch Surfer Socks)

Hermione’s Everyday Socks

Le Moelleux (the squishy) Shawl

Namita Sweater

Next/Acquisitions

Something to make with the gradient set I got from Sweet Paprika Yarns. I was thinking either 

 

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.

Alpaca DK weight yarn (I forgot to write the company down and I don’t have it with me now)

Spin Cycle’s Dyed in the Wool

Blinkwaffle Bag 

Tea: Chai Darling from Tealish


Thanks for watching everyone and thanks for coming back and watching after my unexpected 3 month long break. Hopefully I can keep up with everything a bit better now and it won’t be so long between episodes.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!

Episode 14: The Long Awaited One!

Hey everyone, its been absolutely ages since I last put out a podcast. The end of the summer ended up being super busy and I had a lot of technical problems which prevented me from being able to make one (that’s why this episode is 14 instead of 13, I had a whole episode recorded and ended up not being able to use it) but I’m finally back and I think I will be able to stick with a bi-weekly recording schedule now that school has started back up again. Anyways, here’s this week’s podcast and show notes, I hope you enjoy it!

Hermione’s Everyday Socks

Some sort of worsted weight sweater project. I want to knit something that is going to be pretty simple but not boring and I would like to make a seamed sweater but I don’t have any specific pattern in mind. If you have any ideas or suggestions I would love to hear from you in the comments!

 

Tea: Garden Tea

 

Thanks for watching everyone and thanks for sticking around over my long and unannounced break, it’s great to be getting back in the swing of things now and I’m really looking forward to sharing all my upcoming knitting with you! Until next time, Happy Knitting!

Coopworth wool and some mystery wool that I carded into rolags, both spun on a wheel!

I am still undecided as to whether I am going to ply it or not though and I know you probably can’t see it that well in the video but I would love to hear your opinions on the matter so let me know in the comments what you think I should do with it.

Hello everyone! It’s a bit of a short episode this week but I just didn’t have as much to talk about as usual as I have only been working on a handful of projects. I did dig up something interesting to show you guys though, my very first pair of hand-knit socks!
