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 my thoughts on gift knitting.

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 my new acquisitions or the patterns I plan to make with them. There’s now a Ravelry group; I’d love to ‘meet’ my viewers! If you’d like to follow along with my projects, I post frequently knitting photos on Instagram; my account is thecharmofit.

I explained how I find yarn to buy from other Ravelry members, which I’d also explained in this comment last month, in case seeing it written out is more helpful. 😉 When I was talking about gift knitting, I mentioned that I add tags for personal and gift knitting for my own curiosity (and that I’m quite happy to spend far more time and yardage on objects for me!). If you’d like to see how my projects divide on those lines, here’s the personal tab and the gift one. I highly recommended Elizabeth Wayland Barber’s Women’s Work: the First 20,000 Years as my book review (and forgot to mention it has a lot about spinning as well as weaving of course).

  1. Hi Eva,
    your yarn combination for a pair of Broken Seed Stitch Socks looks great, I’m sure it will work out. I have once made a pair of those for myself so I thought I’d give you my opinion on them:
    They’re fun. Aaaaaaand they’re stretchy. I worked mine on 64 sts I think and I can only wear them above another pair of socks because they get baggy too easily, which is a shame. So especially if yoor feet are on the smaller side, you should really get down in stitch count. If I remember correctly, the pattern has a repeat of four stitches, so you can go for 60 or even 56.
    Hope this will help!
    All the best,

    1. Thanks Annie/Anja (do you have a preference?)! That is very helpful; my first plain stockinette socks (the stripey ones I knit last month) I did 60 stitches but should have gone down to 56. So I’ll pop down for this pattern for sure. 🙂

      1. No I don’t have a preference 🙂 Just do as you like!
        Anni was a nickname of mine when I was a little girl and now I like to use it around english speaking people, because it seems more convenient.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, if you have the time to share them.
