Episode 37 3 into 1

The new episode is here!

Here are the shownotes, sorry about the delay folks!

Off the needles

Lex has finished her tubular socks!  Finished the 2nd cuff, ends are sewn in!  Pattern by Samantha Roshak

Lex also finished a simple 2×2 ribbed hat – knit 3 ply sock yarn using Navajo plying technique.  Brilliant!  Used “Easy knit warm ribbed hat” pattern by Leef Bloomenstiel as a rough guideline (mostly for the decrease intervals, decrease math is not my thing)

Jenn – mittens out of Knitpicks Tweed Aran weight in the Plum Wine Colorway. created my own pattern, with texting thumbs. made thumbs to long and so they make me a little crazy. They are very plain but are lovely and warm

Show me your knits!

Lex – Hubby’s “Other” sock.  Gotta get over second sock syndrome!

Jenn – Starshower cowl by Hilary Smith Callis out of Fino by Manos Del Uruguay, just joined to work in the round. Still plugging away at my Five by Five cowl by Felicia Lo from Sweet Georgia.

When good knitting goes bad

Jenn – working on the Starshower cowl on the flight from Calgary to Vancouver and realized that I went on row to far and now the pattern is backwards. Had to frog it when i finally got to the hotel.
