Episode Two!

Hi Everyone!  I had so much fun doing the podcast last week that I decided to do another one!  Thank you all for your very sweet comments and encouragement!

Show Notes: 
What I'm Wearing
Large Pebble Beach Shawl by Helen Stewart using Madelinetosh Prairie in "Medieval."

 ‌- Opal Sweet & Spicy 2 socks in "Red Cabbage" or Color #8615.  They are the 3rd pair of socks for the boxosox KAL that Kristin with the Yarngasam Podcast is hosting.  I did a toe-up sock and afterthought heel.  I used Kirby Wirby's tutorial for the heel.  I also did a Turkish cast on and Jeny's Suprisingly Stretchy bind off.

- My other two pairs that I finished this year are Patons Kroy "Brown Rose Marl" and Voolenvine Yarns Blitzed in "Pandora".
April socks might be West Yorkshire Spinners in "Kingfisher" from Wool Warehouse.

- Wildes Meer Shawl by Kristen Lehrer of Voolenvine Yarns using Nice & Knit in "High Tide." 100% Superwash Merino, which can be found at The beads are from Earth Treasures Gems.
- Cozy Memories Blanket using Kemper's recipe of the Junkyarn Podcast and  Let me know if anyone out there has any interest in doing a mini skein swap!
- Matthew's rainbow socks using Manic Pixie Dream Yarn Zooey in "Cloudy with a chance of Rainbows."

Malabrigo Nube in "Piedras." (Piedras means stones or rocks in spanish).  I'm spinning it thin and I plan to do a 2 ply.  I'm using the middle whorl on my Lendrum Fast Flyer, which is a 15:1 ratio.  

-‌ A Good Yarn in Sarasota, FL - Fiber by Happy Fuzzy Yarn - 100% Falkland in "Amazonite and Sunset."  A Good Yarn was having a Brooklyn Tweed Trunk show.  I got three skeins of Loft in "Fossil" and "Smokestack."  I also got a free pattern with purchase.  I picked out Kelpie.

The Knitting Patch in Altamonte Springs, FL - one skein of Hedgehog Fibres Sock in "Film Noir."
