The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Alas, poor Chiaogoo. I knew him, Horatio.

Mentioned in this episode:

Weathertop socks by Claire Ellen
Aquaphobia socks by Crystal Flanagan
Crazed Scandinavian cowl by Wendy D. Johnson
Peony-- Pfingstrose Shawl by Hayley Tsang Sather
My Meeks Bay

A good week for knitting here, the weather has been very conducive for knitting. Plus my husband has been out of town so there's been no one to judge me for bingewatching Intervention!

Episode 2

Worst. Podcaster. Ever.

No cats. Very little tea. Copious errors and omissions! Oh, and I messed up the title screen too.

Ommegang pullover
Vanilla Cable Socks
As yet unnamed beanie

Gudrun mittens in Naturespun Sport and leftover rainbow Mini Mochi

Needle-adjacent plots and plans:
Hideously ugly socks

Far, far distant plots and plans:
The Miller's Daughter shawl
Jewel Dragon

Top 3 yarns:
Crystal Palace Mini Mochi
Manos del Uruguay Alegria
Lakes Yarn and Fiber Alturas

Mea culpas:
The designer for The Miller's Daughter is Melanie Berg, I believe I said Melissa. Also apologies to Kate, who suggested last week that next time I do socks with that cable down the sides I should cross at random instead of every four rounds-- NOPE.

It begins!

The yarn is wound, the pattern is purchased, it's almost time to cast on!

Episode 1: Vast Majority

I got quite annoyed with myself for how many times I said "vast majority" in this, so I recommend you turn it into a drinking game. Thanks for watching!

Show notes:

Nouveau Beaded Capelet by Melissa Lemmons
My Rock Island
M K Nance Designs
Lakes Yarn
Glynis shawl by Nadia Cretin-Lechenne
Milk Stout by Thea Colman

Corrections and omissions:

I forgot to mention that Rock Island is, of course, designed by the extremely talented Jared Flood. I also managed to get both the shop name and the colorway name wrong for the yarn I used for it-- Mandie's business is Sheepy Time Knits, not Sheepy Time Fiber, and the colorway is Tangerine Tango. Smh.
