The aspect ratio on this video is really wonky, and I can’t find a way to fix it. I’ll work on it for next week’s videocast. Until then, please know that my head really is not that squished. ;)
Thank you to everyone who watched the first episode last week & left such encouraging feedback for me!
Also, thank you SO MUCH Leslie (udontcallmeles) from The Knit Girllls for helping me figure out post-production.
There is a new Ravelry group for the podcast. Come join us!
(Also, I found out right after I finished recording – natch – the podcast is now available on iTunes!)
ON THE NEEDLES: (Links go to my Rav project pages)
- CalVADos Cardigan (as opposed to CalDAVos, as I have been calling it since I started knitting it last year…duh) – Thea Coleman pattern, Cascade 220 Heathers yarn.
- Haruni – Still there, no progress.
- Crescent Shawl – Scholler & Stahl Limbo from deep in my stash; just winging the pattern as I go.
- Shawl Swap Shawl that I can’t show you because the swap is still at its secret stage. I can tell you I’m knitting it from the BamHuey fiber I spun and showed you last week, and it’s being knit into an Anne Hanson shawl so it will count for the Spring Fling February KAL.
- YOSS February Plain Vanilla Sock – Fleece Artist Somoko yarn, Sun colorway.
- The project bag is a GoKnit pouch, the small one, made by KnowKnits and sold at The Loopy Ewe.
ON THE WHEEL:
- A Targhee wool and mohair blend from Cosymakes’ Farm Wool Fiber Club, the November 2010 colorway called Fire Gang. Cosy’s blog. Cosy’s Etsy shop.
- The Little Girl’s Valentine’s Socks, Austerman Step, plain vanilla pattern.
- Twisting & Twining is out to the test knitters!
- Austerman Step…6 knots and reversed color sequence halfway through the ball? So! Not! Acceptable!
- Not re-reading instructions for projects you’ve set down for a prolonged period leads to errors, such as forgetting to change needle sizes after the ribbing on the back of your Calvados Cardigan.
- Photobooks from Snapfish
- Stinkbugs – ICK!
- The Superbowl is this Sunday! Go Steelers! (Or just watch for the commercials.)
