In this episode I talk about my knitting, and then talk about talking about my knitting.
The knitting patterns I talk about include Bitterroot Shawl pattern, in Briar Rose Fibers roving in a colourway similar to this, Ysolda’s Damson shawl in March Hare Yarn, I frogged the Summit Shawl, and am getting ready to frog the too-big Liesl and use the yarn for something else. But it’s okay, as I’m working a Summer Solstice sweater, with many mods. More on that to come.
While I knit, Prince Not-such-a-bad-guy-once-you-get-past-the-ears up and started a Campaign for Wool. Cute sheepy logo. So glad I didn’t miss this. Make sure you don’t either.
Are you a font nerd too? Don’t forget, Rae Kaiser at Outside the Line has free fonts for you. Sign up. You’re welcome.
The laceweight Cotswold, pictured above, got its colour from copper mordant alone. Magic, eh? It needs to be an heirloom. Got any ideas?
Finally, grateful hanks to my London Bath and Wales knitsibs for asking the pointed questions, to Heather for having the idea and to Diane for making it all happen. Huge thanks to Amy and Philly, for talking to me about talking about my knitting.
