Episode 95 Joyfully Knitting

Hello and welcome to the Hudson Valley Knits Podcast! I am so happy you have come to join me here in the Hudson Valley in NY. Today I am podcasting at Senasqua Park in Croton-on-Hudson, NY. It is a gray and dreary day so not much of a view.

Thanks to the Olympics I have lots of knitting progress!

I cast on Coastal Walk shawl by Joji during the opening ceremony. Can I finish by final day? We shall see. I am knitting it with O-Wool yarn which I highly recommend.

My Humulus sweater by Isabel Kraemer is coming along. Kind of on hold due to the shawl cast on but still super excited to knit on this. Made with Knitpicks Simply Wool and Wool of the Andes Tweed.

I am crazy in love with the ebook Socks 2018 Making Stories! I cast on the Roots pattern and it is dreamy to knit. I am using Spirit Trail Fiberworks (STF) Tayet (no longer being sold)

One small yarn purchase from STF of Philomena in a one of a kind colorway.

 

Episode 92

Hello and welcome! I’ve just added a new video to YouTube. You can see it here.

 

I’ve made some progress on some of the projects since recording and thought I would share.

First thing is I delivered the baby sweater gift and it was well received. The new dad is a trainer that comes to our office and holds a bood camp class. We surprised him before class with our gifts. He loved it and said he would take a picture of his wife with it.

I also finished one of the fingerless mitts which will be a Christmas gift for my sister. I used the little Tosh cakes and came up with this order for the color changes but the mitts didn’t use all the yarn. I think I’ll knit another pair with the remaining colors.

Here’s the finished mitt.

That’s about it for now. Here are the other projects I talk about in the video. See you soon!
