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

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?

    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!!!
