Episode 38 - The return of an old friend

Hello, and welcome to Episode 38

If you are looking for me on Ravelry I am knittynatterzena and the group is knittynatter-podcast group where have a monthly share you Lols thread to enter all of your finished objects whether they be knitting, crochet, spinning, etc.

I have opened at Etsy Store following some wonderful feedback and support from you all, thank you so much.  The store can be found at  please contact me if you have any specific request and I will do my best to help.

The Vanilla Hobbit socks are done. These are in GeminiKnits dark eyes colourway on 2.25mm needle magic loop.  I did notice that the Geminiknits store on Etsy is closed at the moment as I believe she is off having a baby

Nattering Away
I picked up the beatnik by Norah Gaughan (free pattern on Ravelry and  I have just started the armhole shaping.  This is a modified sizing to get to a 34" size.  I am using Rowan Pure Wool Aran on 5.00mm needles.

New cast on this week are the Simple Skyp Socks by Adrienne Ku (free download on Ravelry) and I am using the Scruffy Gnome Base which is fingering weight 85% Sw merino and 15% Donegal Tweed and this is the Pumpkin Spice Latte Colour from Gnomeacres.  I have made good progress with these, the first sock is done and I am almost to heel flap on the second so they should be done in time for May 1st. I cast on the large size (64 stitches) to allow for hte fact that I am usinf fingering weight yarn and the pattern is written for sport.

And we have the return of an old friend this week.  I picked up my evenstar-shawl by Susan Pandorf ($8 pattern on ravelry).  It has been quite a while since we saw this.  The yarn is from CountessAblaze and is the BFL lace in Dusk Colourway.  Minor disaster as when I seem to have lost my 0.6mm crochet hook that I use to do the beading but after a quick trip to the local supermarket to get some Ultra Dental Floss I was able to continue.  It is not my preferred method but it will get me through which I wait for my replacement crochet hook to arrive.  I only managed 2 edging repeats yesterday but that takes me to 7 completed.. only another 49 to go!! This is on 3.25m needles.

I haven't worked on Spring Shoots Socks from Socktopus by Alice Yu.

No whispering to me I am going to admit to and no speech therapy this week.

That's it for this week, I hope you all have a fantastic week and I'll see you next time

Bye Now
