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 finished projects, current projects, and why I’m not sure what sweater I’ll be knitting next.
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). I was wearing this hat. My queue might be helpful this time too, since I mentioned a couple future projects (I use my queue for yarn I already own when I definitely know what pattern I want to knit with it; the order is fairly arbitrary to be honest, since I cast on a new project when I’ve finished a similar one). Speaking of which, I have one correction: the Ultra Alpaca yarn I swatched with is in the Azure colourway, not Blueberry. The two Rav groups I mentioned are Sock Knitters Anonymous and SolidSocks. If you’d like to see more frequent updates of my knitting, I am quite active on Instagram; you can follow me at TheCharmofIt.
I mentioned the newest edition of Alice Starmore’s Tudor Knitting book (full of the most stunning sweater patterns!) and discussed Ann Budd’s The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns in my new book review segment. I also recommended the Kill to Craft video podcast and the Prairie Girls Knit and Spin audio podcast (as well as Prairie Girl Dani’s One Twisted Tree yarn shop), both knitting-centric. Finally, I talked about my favourite knitting needle company: DyakCraft. I love both their DarnPretty wooden line, which is sadly unavailable for the indefinite future, and their Heavy Metal small gauge circular interchangeable set, which is available. It includes six tips, all of the sizes I mention in the video. Unless the project is on size 000s, I knit it with DyakCraft needles.
