Show Notes: Episode 100

♥ Please come join us in the Ravelry group!

♥ If you like speckle-y sock yarn, you might want to check out my Etsy shop:lambytoesshop.etsy.com.

Show Notes: “January be Trollin'”
♥ Today I’m wearing my heavily modified Shalom cardigan that I knit back in February 2010 during the winter Ravelympics. Please click the link to go to my ravelry project page and see the details!

WiPs:
♥ Margo Poncho by Elizabeth Smith. This is considerably too wide, so I will be getting creative to fix this in the coming week! I should have gone with my instinct to choose sizing like I would a sweater rather than fear it would be too close fitting.

♥ 2015 Personal Sock Club: O1 of O8. I finally cast on my Quaere Fibre sock yarn in “Askew.” I realized that my initial impression and disappointment when I received this were spot on. This sale was from over 15 months ago, so I’m not looking for any kind of “fix.” I’m going to keep knitting these and chalk it up as a lesson in being more assertive and taking care of issues right away rather than waiting and hoping I will feel better about it later.

Spinning A Yarn:
♥ I finished my Spun Right Round BFL “Parakeet” 2-ply. It came in at 199.5yds to 3.8oz. It’s a pretty solid worsted weight which is not what I was aiming for.
♥ I continued work on my Spun Right Round “Glee” batt with my AaronMakesStuff spindles. It’s coming along nicely when I have time to work on it.
♥ My current wheel project is my April 2014 MoonRover Riber Club braid. I’m super nervous about how this one will turn out. I may have made clown barf on accident. We shall see.

Let Me Enable You:
♥ Hello Yarn December 2014 club braid has arrived!
♥ I bought another AaronMakesStuff spindle.
♥ I showed some skeins I’ve been dyeing up for Lamby Toes and hope to have in the shop before the weekend is over.

Episode 100: January be Trollin’

It’s a lovely cold Thursday, kittens! I had to rerecord because my lighting moved too quickly yesterday and cause some issues. Today I have some WIPs to show you, quite a lot of spinning, I get a bit personal with my doubts about two of my projects, and I have a couple of lovelies to show you including what I’ve been dyeing up for Lamby Toes! Thank you for sharing some of your time with me today! Show notes can be found at the blog, sewknitpicky.net.
