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.
