episode 31: remember me?

 
 
after a super long, unintended hiatus, i fill you in on the latest goings on!

no promises about a podcasting schedule, due to the "real life" things i have going on right now, but i promise to put out a show whenever i can, and will re-evaluate once things settle down.

Friend to FO March: winner is post #2 - samplerstitcher. PM me with your full name, address, and which version of cozies you'd like (red w/ flowers or purple w/ hearts), and I will mail them out plus a little bonus for being so patient, as soon as I unpack them. LOL! :)

FOs:
Pomme de Pin!
PdP KAL winners - Josie (the only FO!) and cpurl17 (the only person other than Josie to post a WIP!)

Next KAL: SOCKS! the group says APril/May, but I"m just going to extend it for the whole 2nd quarter, so April, May, and June!  Post your FO's in the KAL thread, and I will enter them into my own spreadsheet for prize drawings.  Self-striping yarns = a bonus entry, plus you can still post your FOs in the monthly Friend to FO thread! Socks must be started April 1 and finished/posted in the thread by June 30 (or whenever I wake up to close the thread July 1). Prizes will be drawn on the next podcast after.

WIPs:
Treehugger Skyps
Vanilla Bean Smiles
Rhombi
Moon River

Coming Attractions:
Hitchhiker
Drizzle
Dublin socks
Neon and/or Vodka Gimlet

Acquisitions:
Too many to share! I received my yarn for Neon (Plucky Knitter Sweater in Hotsy Totsy) and Vodka Gimlet (Madelinetosh Vintage in Betty Draper's Blues), loads of self-striping from destashes and some KirbyWirby yarns.

Review:
Knit to Flatter by Amy Herzog!
CHeck out her Craftsy Class by the same name. If you visit her blog, I believe she is still offering a discount on the class, but it's well worth the full price based on the few lessons I've watched so far.

episode 29: stitches eve



Mini Skeins Drawing - post #22 and post #9 are the winners. PM me with your first/last name an address!

WIPs:
Pomme de Pin is the only thing I've been working on. Starting sleeves!!
I'm also taking some stripey socks with me to Stitches. I have two sets that just need their mate, so I'm hoping to finish at least one of them.

FOs: Nothing

Stitches West!!
Stitches West is this weekend, and I will be there Thursday, Friday, and part of Saturday. I'm not part of the Podcaster Meetup because 1) I'm shy, lol, and 2) I wasn't invited! lol! I have a class Friday afternoon and the Fashion Show/Dinner on Friday evening. I will be hanging around the market Thursday evening during the student preview and also Friday afternoon after my class, and Saturday until we're too tired and decide to go home. If you see me or hear me giggle, stop by and say hi. I'm super shy in person, but will try to fake it if you come up to me. lol. :) I don't have buttons, but I'll be handing out my brand new moo cards!

Plans of booths to hit - I usually stop by BMFA a couple times, and I really want to go to the Knitting Rose booth, Erin Lane Bags, Miss Babs, probably WEBS, and we'll just see what happens.

Staying at the Hilton, so if you are staying there, you might run into me there, too!

I'm going to clear off my phone and use it to take some videos... I think videos are frowned upon in the market, but I can show you purchases along the way.

I AM SO EXCITED! :)
