90% Knitting: Episode 7

So sorry for the horrible lighting in this episode! Between needing to have my ceiling light on and my unforunate choice of a hot pink shirt (never! again!), the colors in this episode are quite off at some parts. Blargh. :( 

Thank you to everyone who introduced themselves in the Ravelry group this week! We’ve over 200 members now, and to celebrate that, I did a couple of random drawings. Wombatknitter and flangel813 will both be receiving a little something direct from my stash!

ON THE NEEDLES:

FINISHED OBJECTS:

  • I got nuthin’.

ON THE WHEEL/IN THE DYE:

  • No spinning, but I dyed some roving and several skeins of self-striping worsted weight. Still testing out colorways for the shop! Shared some swatches of how they might knit up.

DESIGN PROJECTS:

  • Planning outlines for upcoming classes I’ll be teaching at a LYS, Stormy Blue, this month and next.

OOPS:

  • Beret de Printemps mess…I should NOT knit lace while watching TV, no matter how simple the chart seems.

RESOURCES/RECOMMENDATIONS:

10%:

  • Stash enhancement – I fell down with a large Rios purchase from TLE’s update last Monday. Also received a lovely skein of Wollmeise in the mail in a swap, and I won a TLE gift certificate as well as a skein of Bugga in Blue Lobster from the Spring Fling Feb. KAL.
  • This week’s Ravelry group Quickie KAL pattern is the Mitered Leaf Shamrock, by Vickie Howell. Great way to knit a little something for St. Patrick’s Day next week and use up some leftovers in the process!
