Special thanks to the people who have reviewed me on iTunes!!
It really means so much! 

Come on!! You know you want to leave a review! 

Shout out to Sarah and Kristi, cohorts of the In a sKnit (wish I’d thought of that) video podcast, for mentioning me/the podcast in their “sKnit I love” segment on their show!
This is a great video podcast, definitely check it out.

Show Ready:
Decided to frog the little I’d done on noble cowl
I do not like to (can’t?) follow written instructions. 

This yarn is a dream to knit with. So soft.

Finished all three repeats of the leaf pattern and I ran out of yarn with 5.5 rows of seed stitch to go. I thought I could finish with one skein but no such luck.

Blocked very aggressively, flat. Am considering blocking with two bottles, heard about on the In a sKnit podcast. 

Please look at the pictures on my project page to see how I blocked the cowl with the bottles to get rid of the creases. 

In Rehearsals

The Never-Ending Boxy Sweater

Free pattern by Andrea Rangel

Swatching: I decided to do the right thing and wash my swatch. Normally I don’t even bind off and I definitely don’t block it. But, after some advice from Knit FM I decided if I want to be a real knitter I needed to block it. Also, this is going to be a time consuming gift and if it doesn’t fit it will suck!

Learned something about myself. The reason I don’t wash and block swatches is b/c I am always swatching when I’m ready to start knitting. The trick then, for me needs to be to swatch while I still have other projects going so that I am never without a project.

Also in Rehearsal: 

This is for the Spring Forward KAL I’m hosting! Come join the Ravelry Group for more Info!

Check out The Yarniacs Podcast if you haven't already. 

Auditioning this week:

What a Crock:

Love it or leave it:

Love it: New Knitting group (can’tsay it enough)
Leave it: Knowing that no matter what I will never be able to make my hair look as good as the stylist does

Theatre news:
Had a get together with a cast of Miss Firecracker: THIS NEVER HAPPENS

Read a script (trying to decide whether to audition) called “The Smell of the Kill." It's a little bizarre. Would only run for one weekend so it’s a nice compromise show. But. You still rehearse the same amount of time, more or less.
