episode 36: “…as long as I hold a string”

On/Off the Needles:

-sock knitting. i’m working on blueberry waffle socks

-knitting the shawl still….

-getting the itch to knit a topdown sweater

-shrug is going to a good home

-creative1′s blocking sweater solution!

step 1: measure up the sweater and jot the numbers down

step 2: soak sweater in tepid water with wool wash and 1-2 tbs of fabric softener. drain and press out as much water as you can, roll up in a towel to get even more of the water out.

step 3: lay out sweater and block to an inch or two more in each direction


-Damknit pointed me over to the crochet baby booties by Sylver Designs

-hello yarn’s “we call them pirates” hat (yes, i know…i called it “they might be pirates”…..i blame the cold!)


-Whoa is the state of illinois. early intervention issues… if you want to help, live in illinois, please look here

- Little man meets Thomas the Tankengine

i think it was a lot more impressive in person to see the change happen. it’s a LOT richer and darker looking. i love my new guy! :)

-replacing the tension screw knob eventually

-thanks to fiberfriend for the alpaca batt and the “nunny” for the littleman

SOAR homework (sponsered by ellen):


-Royal French sheep breed that was fine tuned by crossing with Spain’s Merino flock

-raised primarily for it’s fine grade wool

-elasticity and loft (even more the merino)

-about a 2-4 inch staple length

-somewhat consistent crimp

-i found it spun easier then the merino did. it wasn’t as slick as the merino was. i was able to do long draw, i spun it straight, and i bet you i could spin it super fine if i wanted to! :)

    Love the pix! Owen looks like he had fun with Sir Topham hat…or did he get a little freaked like at Easter?! haha!

    Frank looks awesome too, what a difference it made, that oil bath. Just a little lovin’ and he’s allll better.

    And look at your hair getting all long–yay! Aren’t you glad you didn’t cut it?

    “Frank” looks wonderful. All the TLC will be rewarded.

    WOW! The wheel has made a major transformation! It looks brandy new. I’m so happy for you finding that wheel.
    Owen looks like he was having fun in the pics. He is so darn cute. I love hearing about his antics and the progress he makes.

    Hi! I just wanted to say that I’ve been listening to your podcast and I love it. I love the way you don’t read anything and are very casual. I adore your voice and your laugh is wonderful. Thanks for sharing your knitting and babbling-I’m usually jogging, cleaning or cooking while listening. Oh and Frank looks great after the bath!!!
