#44 - I'm Back!!!

Hi!!! It's been so long since I've done a podcast, but I'm back and there will most definitely be more! Onto the show notes! *


- Basic Hat (just winged the pattern) out of Knit Picks Brava Worsted in the Camel Heather colorway. I used size 8 16 inch fixed circulars from Knit Picks.

- Stacked Eyelet Cowl by Ami Madison using Handspun from Amy/mingmow/Rain Barrel Designs. It's gorgeous and I love the way it worked up! I used size 6 Chiaogoo interchangeable needles. It lived in a bag by Southpaw Creations.

- I'm making all the Granny Squares for an upcoming pattern and tutorial. (kinda a WIP too)


- No-Heal SpiralSocks by La Maison Rililie using Knit Picks Felici in the Surf's Up colorway and living in a bag from Rain Barrel Designs.

- I'm making a hat out of Caron x Pantone yarn in the Strawberry Chill colorway. I used the cast on count from this pattern from Yarnspirations, but I don't think I'm going to use the actual colorwork pattern. Not sure yet! For the needles, I'm using size 9's for the band and will switch to size 10's when I'm done with the ribbing. They are the 16 inch interchangeables from Knitter's Pride.


- I bought 6 colorways of Caron x Pantone from Michaels. The colorways are Strawberry Chill, Elephant Gray, River Rock, Ultra Violet Minerals, Frozen Berry, and Terrarium Green.
