In this episode: I celebrate the final patterns in Welsh for Rainbow, Barley Straw (top left) and Pentre Ifan (below left), plus the publication of the e-version of the book. I am delighted to find that I haven’t forgotten how to talk about my knitting, and am also relieved by such, in equal measure.
I also chat with JC Briar about her wonderful project, Stitch-Maps.com, a beautiful and intuitive method for mapping knit stitches. Find JC online at her website, the Stich-Maps Facebook Page, and the Stitch-Maps Ravelry Group.
I talked about knitting the Marin shawl, Tintern Abbey socks, and my second pair of Uzus. (The first were felted and went to the big lint trap in the sky.)

I am delighted to announce that Welsh for Rainbow, the 6-month e-book project that was two years in the making, is done. The printed version will be along in a few months. Hopefully, the first of many. I couldn’t be more proud.
Clicking the cover image above will whisk you to the Ravelry page where you can see pretty pictures of all the patterns in the book. Of course, while you’re there, I very much hope you’ll buy it. That’s why books get written by people like me, after all. So that people like you will buy the them, and read them and love them. If you do want to, you know, buy the e-book, you should do that on Ravelry for the time being. The Cast On shop hasn’t been updated just yet. It’s on my list but, seeing as you can buy the e-book on Ravelry, updating the shop is not very high on the To-Do list.
What does take precedence this week is a March podcast. Yes. We now return to our regularly scheduled programming. So that’s exciting, yes?
It’s been nearly a year since I’ve done one of these, but I think I remember how. I’m keeping this one simple. Just me, a mic and my knitting. Lots and lots of knitting. The needles have been super busy with my own work (see above) as well as the work of others, so there’s lots to talk about. The new episode of Cast On will go live on Friday. See you then!
