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.
(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.
(4:15) I also mention that I named my Hilde hat pattern, after my grandmother.
