Hey everyone, here are the show notes from episodes 13 and 14. Sorry they took so long!
First off, last week I spoke about knitting I have seen on tv recently. For some truly inspired knitting check out the 1991 show Dinosaurs. I also spoke a bit about where I would like to see some knitting in entertainment.
I knit a Watermelon hat, based off of the hat knit by the Yarn Harlot recently. I’m having a bit of trouble with the seeds, I don’t want to leave a string going through the inside of the hat, but I’m not sure how else to do the double stitching.
I finished my World Cup Knitting. I had knit the Fuzzy Reception Cardigan designed by Joanna Sieff and available through knitpicks.com. I ran out of the Merino Style wool before I could do the button band, so I’m going to look for a clasp of some sort.
Lastly I worked on a tank top for Joanna. I cast on and started knitting in the round. I’m not sure how I’ll do the straps, but I’ll figure it out.
Episode 13 Reviews
Spin Off summer 2006
Rating-Full stash box It is full of information, a variety of things. I’m not ready for all of it today, and some I’m not sure when I’ll get around to it, but full of possibilities
The Yarn Girls Guide To Kid Knits, patterns for babies and toddlers by Julie Carles and Jordana Jacobs
Rated-Bright colored stockinette sweater- simple enough to make, goes over big with the parents, but the kid cares more about what color.
The Imperfect Mom
Rated sweater knit on the wrong size needles that still keeps you warm.
In Episode 14, I finally talk about knitting in Okinawa. I have looked for Okinawa knitters, but alas I have found none. Since I have no tales of Japanese knitting, I shared my adventure as I searched for a yarn store.
I have nothing new to report on my needles. Since I finished my world cup knitting my focus has been on Joanna’s dancing girl quilt. I have 3 ½ squares left to finish before my mother gets here. I really want to finish before then, so I can have my mother’s help putting top, batting and bottom together.
Greetings From The Knit Café by Suzan Mischer
Rated-Handspun silk and cashmere socks. You might not need them, but who wouldn’t want them?
Songs for episode 14 were provided by my lovely daughter Joanna. She has desperately wanted to help with this podcast, and was thrilled at such a fun contribution.
I've been having trouble with links lately, so I am sorry to not have any today!
Thank you everyone for waiting on Episode 13 notes!
