Knitting Podcast 35: Tweaking Finished Objects

It’s time to delve back into my knitting basket! So bring out your own crafting project, take a seat, and listen to a bit about my current projects, my usual accompanying segments, as well as how I’ve been tweaking finished objects.

In lieu of detailed episode notes, I’ll direct you to my Ravelry project page, from which you can find any yarn and pattern specifics that might have caught your eye (or friend me for that matter). Here is my queue and stash, in case you want more information about future plans or what’s hiding in my cupboards. There’s also a Ravelry group; I love to meet my viewers! If you’d like to follow along with my projects, I frequently post knitting photos on Instagram; my account is thecharmofit. I’m most social on Instagram, so that’s the place to visit me if you want to chat.

Knitting Podcast 32: Winding Yarn

It’s time to delve back into my knitting basket! So bring out your own crafting project, take a seat, and listen to a bit about my current projects, my usual accompanying segments, as well as how I wind yarn. (Note that the winding tutorial I mentioned making is going to be delayed; I recorded one but the focus is too messed up for it to be useful. I’m currently in a flare up of my health issues, so I can’t wind any yarn for a little bit. Once I can, I’ll get the tutorial up! In the meantime, I found a great video tutorial for using a nostepinne that shows the same method I use.)

In lieu of detailed episode notes, I’ll direct you to my Ravelry project page, from which you can find any yarn and pattern specifics that might have caught your eye (or friend me for that matter). Here is my queue and stash, in case you want more information about future plans or what’s hiding in my cupboards. There’s also a Ravelry group; I love to meet my viewers!
