EPISODE 267: "Green Elephant In the Room"

I finished my Threipmuir sweater and a pair of socks! I also cast on for the Curious Handmade Impressionists MKAL, and chat about future sweater plans. 

GIVEAWAYS!

  • (2:14) I announce the winner of the Sokkelester Sock Pattern Collection by Skeindeer! 

    In her Sokkelester collection, Eli has designed 6 gorgeous colorwork sock patterns to knit. And the lovely person that she is, she is giving away a copy of her collection to one lucky Yarngasm podcast viewer! (Thank You Eli!! )

    To enter the giveaway, I asked participants to tell us who would they name a pattern of their own design after. Click here to read some of the wonderful entries from the Ravelry thread.

RABBIT HOLES (19:21)

I'm introducing a new segment to the podcast, since I have a tendency to fall down making "rabbit holes". This week, I find myself diving into weaving! 

I finished a gingham rectangular scarf on my Ashford SampleIt 10" Rigid Heddle Loom. I used Voolenvine Yarns, Smitten DK in "I Am No Bird" and "Grimm".
