Listen to Episode 22 Here!
If you please, a positive review on ITunes would be so nice in helping to cover some of the bad reviews that are poking us in the eyes. :)
SOCK AROUND THE WORLD:
We've come up with what I think will be a really fun and exciting undertaking. We will be sending a out 2 skeins of Barking Dog Yarns Opposites Attract in the Arthur and Guinevere colorway to be made into a pair of socks by 10 of our listeners. The first 10 people to volunteer in our Ravelry group under the Socks Around The World thread, will get to be a part. We will be dividing the sock up into five parts: ribbing, leg, heel, foot and toe. When you sign up, please pick the part of the sock you want to knit. We will choose 2 knitters for each sock part. Participants may choose whatever pattern they wish to knit, any type ribbing or edging, any type heel, etc. These socks will be a hodgepodge, a representation of 10 different knitters. And when they are done, the will be raffled off.
Knitters who wish to participate must be willing to include some of your favorite chocolate for the next knitter on the list and be willing to pay postage to the next knitter.
This should be so much fun and I can't WAIT to see the amazing socks our listeners will create!
SPEAKING OF SOCKS:
Thank you to Janice (Catspawlace) for offering to knit the feet on the Tardis Socks I'm knitting for my sister. I have knit the legs and they are ready to be shipped off to Janice for the finishing.
Do any of you remember playing Jacob's Ladder with a string?
Thank you to Diane (Meshuggaknitter) for gifting me with the lovely Walk Now sock pattern. A portion of the proceeds for this pattern goes to Autism Speaks. I hope you will check it out and consider purchasing it.
And finally, I cast on a pair of my handspun 3-ply worsted weight toe-up socks for my 7 yo and she is thrilled to have her first pair of hand-knit socks. I just love the colors!
KAL Part II
Don't forget to use stitch markers between your 7-stitch lace repeats. It will make your life easier. :)
If you want an easier way to try on your sweater, you won't be disappointed with Try It On Tubing. Zips in, zips out! Much faster than waste yarn. You'll love it!
And for those who don't wish to tinker with the SSK, don't forget that the K2tbl (Knit Two Through Back Loop) is a very close second and is much faster and less fiddly. Give it a try and see what I mean.
Up for trade: Trader's choice of either 8oz. of prepared Mohair roving
Or a full Mohair fleece (approx. 4 lbs.)
IN OUR WINEGLASS:
