Episode 6: The All Owl Podcast

Filed under: Crafting, Podcast — Tags: , , , , , , — GreenStockings Craft & Creative Events @ 9:49 AM

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for checking out the podcast this week!

So in the continued adventures of making this podcast, this episode was recorded on my tablet. I’m happy with the video quality, but there is a low-level whine in the background of the whole episode. If that sort of thing bothers you (or if you use earbuds to listen) you might want to pass on this episode and join us for the next one. I have, however, figured out what caused it, so we should have none of that issue the next time!

Notes for projects mentioned:

 

Owl Puffs by Jenna Krupar (Retro Lemon) in Bernat Softie Chunky on 4.5mm needles

Trillian Shawl by Martina Behm in Fleece Artist 2/6 in Stone on 4.0mm needles

Ginny’s Cardigan by Marie Chiba in mystery yarn on 3.0 and 3.5mm needles

 

Books mentioned:

 

Knit to Flatter by Amy Herzog

Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton

Yarn Comes from the Interwebs

Filed under: Crafting — Tags: , , — GreenStockings Craft & Creative Events @ 9:58 AM

It is, perhaps, unfortunate that I have discovered that there is copious amounts of otherwise unavailable yarn to had from ebay. I am very very very pleased that shortly I will be the proud owner of:

Elvincraft BFL sock yarn in “Woaded Warrior Woman” (which already sounds like one fierce pair of socks!)

and

2 balls of Crystal Palace Chunky Mochi in Rainbow! I have been trying to get my hands on this yarn for months – it’s not retailed anywhere in Montreal, and you know how much I LOVE my rainbow yarn. I consider whether “pride knitting” should become a niche of mine…

Which reminds me! I have two people interested in rainbow legwarmers – time to pull up my stockings and be pro-active!!
