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.

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

LOLS
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 Knitty.com.  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
:)
