Knitting Segments

Program Mentions: 

Thanks to designer Melanie Berg for sending me her latest pattern, Caress my Soul. It's absolutely beautiful! 

Melanie also wanted me to direct you to a charity she is supporting, Knitters for Doctors without Borders, and encourage you to give if you can!

I am knitting this as a part of the Pussy Hat Project, here is the link to the official pattern, that's knit flat. 

Knits on Stage

I wore my Viajante to school last week and got some nice compliments. I have also gotten so much use/wear out of my Worsted Boxy.

Several winners were announced on episode 64 for several contests. If you entered any of those giveaways or Knit a Longs, please listen to Episode 64 to see if you won. Winners need to get in touch with me by January 15, 2017.

I'm so excited about our next knit a long, New Year, New Ewe!

Are you ready to try something new with your knitting? A new technique or type of product? Perhaps a designer you have never tried? A new type of yarn? Check out the episode for more information about this Knit A Long for 2017. Officially it will run January 1 through March 10, 2017. Check out the chatter thread in the Ravelry Group. Rules will be listed in the Ravelry group as well.

I am going to cast on the Vintage Prim by Andrea Mowry. Andrea Mowry is the designer behind the Find Your Fade Shawl.

Here is the tutorial I used to practice Brioche.
