The next Socks-for-Mum podcast has been uploaded.
In this episode I show my newly finished Diamond Fizz Shawl and I chatter about the Fern and Feather sweater. There is a prize draw. I share a little bit about knitting in Colonial times – yep, I have finally started my research on for the dreaded History of Knitting paper I must write for Master Knitting Level 2.
I will be updating my Etsy shop tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 ET with Wonderland project bags. These are all pre-orders that will ship within a couple weeks. There will be a limited number in the shop so hop on over!
Things I talk about in this Socks-for-Mum podcast:
When I saw the Sleepy Kitty set in Making Magazine I knew I needed to knit it for my granddaughter.
Susan B. Anderson, the brilliant designer behind knitted toys, designed this special kitty who comes with her own sleep sack.
I had a blast knitting Sleepy Kitty.
She is knit with some super soft acrylic yarn I bought at JoAnn Fabrics just in case ‘real’ wool is too scratchy for granddaughter. And also, just in case Sleepy Kitty needs a bath at some point.
I obviously had a bit of fun posing Sleepy Kitty in various sleep positions. I noticed she seems to have the similar sleep habits to my own.
I especially love the whiskers on Sleepy Kitty, don’t you?
In this episode I review the new Addi Flexiflip needles. I’ve also had an attack of ‘start-itis’ and went a little crazy casting on all the things. I can’t seem to resist pattern sales and stranded color-work and when you combine the two it can be dangerous.
In which the Mum talks about UFO Thursdays, sewing makes and the long awaited cable flare compensation swatch.
In which the Mum tells the story of the Guernsey Potato Peel Hat and talks of other knitting adventures.
