Episode 161: Garden Tour

8:24:00 PM

This week I'm recording from our new deck! (Apologies in advance for weird lighting and windy audio) I also give you a mini tour of the work we've been doing to our backyard.


Voolenvine Yarns has an upcoming trunk show at Gauge + Tension 9/12 - 9/13

Finally picked up another skein of Brooklyn Tweed Loft in Postcard to finish my Lattice Shawl!

We've been working on our backyard! Dennis planted some clover which is starting to grow in. We also picked up some shrubs and plants, including Russian Sage ... which I'm allergic to. I can look ... but can't touch :(

  1. Hi Kristin - just watched the Garden Tour podcast and your lacework is beautiful!! The outside light definitely helps to show the stitchwork like you said. Regarding your very attractive "tile wall" outside, can you paint it possibly? I would choose a really strong in your face colour and paint the whole thing to draw attention to it rather than try and hide it. It actually looks quite architectually interesting so maybe some lime green or Horror purple would work??? Not sure how hubby would feel about that but it's what I would do if it were mine. Anyway, just thought I'd drop you a line. Thanks for an awesome podcast blog! Happy Knitting! Laura xxx

    1. Hey Laura! Thanks so much for watching. I love all those ideas, and would totally go for something like that. Unfortunately, because that building isn't technically our property, we can't do anything to it.
      I think the only thing we really can do is cover it up with some kind of fencing. :/
