Episode #101 – The Secret is Out

Introduction

In this episode, I have some knitting, some spinning, some random craft related projects, I am all spun up that the secret is out about the super duper top secret project and I announce the winner of the 100th episode drawing I hosted.

Updates

A lot has happened since the last episode.  I talk about the weather.  I got a job offer.  I have a huge checklist of tasks to get done before I start said job.

All Spun Up

I am spun up about the release of the Super Duper Top Secret Project.  Check out my first pattern: Aunt Maggie, available for free on Ravelry.

Spinning my Wheels

Knitting

  • I didn’t start anything or finish anything but, I have been swatching like crazy for a new pattern design.  I am totally in love with garter stitch and it shows.
  • I have taken some inspiration from the Hitchhiker Shawl by Martina Behm and the Scrappy Bias Shawl from Emily Clawson.
  • I am also totally in love with Misty Mountain Farms Prime Alpaca DK.  YUM!!!

Spinning

  • I have managed to spin for 15 minutes each day for about the last week and a half.  Almost done with that silly bump.

Other Crafty Goodness

  • I have been taking time to work on some projects made of reclaimed wood and materials.  I tell you all about the Aspen wood slices and the fleece skirting/drying table I made from a reclaimed closet door.

Spin Off

  • Congratulations to, Genevieve, KnitGen on Ravelry who is the winer of the 100th Episode All Spun Up Drawing.  She will receive a skein of yarn from the contest sponsor, Six and Seven Fiber and a handmade project bag.
  • A huge thank you to Allison of Hollywood Knitter for the shout out and helping listeners find me.
  • Closing song: Fans by Kings of Leon.
