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 knitting resolutions for the upcoming year.

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 (many) 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.

Podcasts mentioned include Tiny Paper Foxes, Knitting Pretty  , and Holland Handmade. Erin is the source of the giveaways; you’ll find her project bags in her Etsy store. If you’d like to enter to win the KnitPicks Felici yarn, visit this thread.

I briefly discussed my love for Sock Architecture by Cookie A. Two minutes didn’t do justice to the book! I also mentioned how I fold my sweaters; I did manage to turn up the video I learned the method from years ago. Here it is.

    1. Oh fun! Socks are pretty addictive, in my experience at least. 🙂 (Would you like to be entered in the Felici giveaway? If so, please post your resolution to the group thread too; you don’t need to join so as long as you have a Ravelry account it should be easy.)

  1. Wow, I love the colors that you’ve selected for all your projects. The Caravanserai socks have such a mysterious feel to them. There is a good amount of socks this time 🙂 all of them beautifully knit.

    1. Thank you Maemi! Yep; simple socks are my go-to travel/conversation project, so they got most of my knitting time on my trip. I was aiming for a Silk Road feel with the Caravanserai socks, so thank you. 🙂

      I’m pretty excited about the colours of my new yarn too; it seems I’m entering a plum/purple phase at the moment. hehe

  2. Wonderful to see you back & to see all the stash & your plans for it.

    I think I know why you prefer sweaters to stoles … more opportunity for you to amend the pattern you are working with to produce an even more bespoke garment. A flat stole does not offer sleeves to be tapered, a waist to be nipped in or a collar to be eased. 😉

    Best wishes for slow knitting in 2016 …

    1. Anne, I think you know me better than I know myself! Now that you’ve suggested it, I can see that you’re right. 🙂 Perhaps I need to seek out more challenging stole patterns to help me feel engaged without shaping. Thank you for the insight!

  3. I can’t wait to see all your socks together. I love your socks. By the way, I bought a circular needle and started working on an experimental hat.

    1. Thank you Amanda! My socks have outgrown their shoebox, but luckily I thrifted a slightly bigger basket over the holidays that should work. 😉 I think I’ll probably wait until March to record that episode, so that my first pair of Finch socks are a year old.

      How exciting about your hat!!! I hope it’s going wonderfully. You can always e-mail me if you get stuck!

    1. I love all forms of knitting, but I’m pretty sure twisted stitch knitting (like on those socks & my teal cardigan) is the type that makes me catch my breath the most! It’s like those miniature paintings that make you imagine tiny paintbrushes made from mouse whiskers or something.

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