A Bunch of Thank Yous
Since November is the month to be thankful, we would like to thank all of you who listen to our podcast. To Amy, Karen and Brenda, the owners of Woolworks Yarn Shop in Baltimore, MD, we thank you for your continual support. Woolworks offers a variety of yarns and fibers for every knitting occasion, including Woolfolk, Madeline Tosh, and The Fiber Company. See woolworksbalt.com for a complete list of classes, knit alongs, and other special events, such as the Jane Spalding Ceramics Trunk Show on December 2nd from 11AM-3PM.
To Brooke of Fully Spun Yarn, we thank you for being our first ever long distance, computer screen-to-computer screen interview. We cannot wait to get our conversation uploaded for the show. In the meantime, listeners can check out Brooke’s beautiful yarns at fullyspun.com and see her in person December 2nd and 3rd at the Art Pop Squared Artist’s Market in Frederick, Maryland. And, you did hear that right, listeners. The Misadventures in Knitting Podcast will eventually include interviews!
Knit Along News
*Congratulations to the grand prize winners of the Too Much Candy Knit Along, JMazurick for the Autumnal Cowl and LMEColl for the Grand Central Socks. We used the random number generator to select our Ravelry and Instagram winners. In total, we had 17 gorgeous entries. Thank you so much to all who participated!
*Our next Knit Along, The Knitters Book Club, is scheduled to begin in January 2018. Over the course of three months, we will read “A Stash of One’s Own” by Clara Parkes and knit a project designed by one of the contributors. We will chat about the book and ooh-and-ahh over everyone’s knitting by using Google Hang Out. Please see the Misadventures in Knitting Ravelry group for complete information and a bundle of potential patterns.
Hot Off the Needles
Ashley finished the Unicorn Hat by Brittany Tyler Simmonds. Ashley used Rowan Big Wool, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, and wool roving, which Ashley made into a “fulled” yarn.
Tara finished the 6-12 month Flax Sweater by Tin Can Knits using Cascade 220 Superwash Wave in the “Seattle” colorway.
Tara also finished the Spindrift Shawl by Helen Stewart using Destination Yarns Postcard Base in the Toes in the Sand colorway.
Ashley has been misadventure-free while Tara has a terrible case of startitis/startosis and knitting ADD. She wants to cast on more projects than is possible to finish!
What We are Working On
Tara is test knitting a sweater for Melissa Kemmerer in a size 6. The sweater is called “Angel in my Tiny Pocket” and it features a small pocket along the hem with a duplicate stitch angel for the wearer to touch when they need extra energy or love. Tara is using Jill Draper Esopus fingering weight, which has been discontinued.
Tara started the Amulet Shawl by Helen Stewart using Old Maiden Aunt Superwash Merino 4-ply in the Buttermint Colorway. She also purchased triangular shaped beads from Lovelyarns to decorate the shawl.
Ashley has been working tirelessly on the Ninlichik Swoncho by Caitlin Hunter using Arranmore Light by the Fibre Company.
Ashley is also working on a pair of socks while watching “Stranger Things”. She is using the “Upside Down” colorway by the Freckled Whimsy.
Tara is also working on the Surprise Party Shawl by Helen Stewart and the Wagenfeld Sweater by Ankestrick. Tara continues to feel unsure how her husband will like this colorful sweater.
Tara is daydreaming about Helen Stewart’s “Land of Sweets” Cowl that is part of the 2017 Knitvent Collection.
Ashley is imaginary knitting her Nox Yarn Advent Mini-Skeins. Ashley has considered Archer’s Paradox by Sweet Birch Design, Parallel Waves by Julia Marsh, and the Felicitas sweater by Maliha Designs.
