Episode 73 – yarn gluttony of epic proportions (shownotes)

FOs:

  • If They Kill Rick socks.  Also Susan will be doing another sock KAL in 2016.  I would keep an eye out on her group on Ravelry for more details.
  • 2 blanket squares for my barn raising quilt.  I was motivated to knit these this week because of the #blanketmadness on Instagram.  The first yarn is Voolenvine Yarn Blitzed base in the Stellar Banshee color way, and the second yarn is a special edition yarn called Vintage Red from Desert Vista Dyeworks.  I did switch out the way that I cast on for these squares.  I used a tutorial from Tin Can Knits, and it is a great one.

WIPs:

  • yarn from Pandia’s Jewels in the American Graffiti and Mist in a Graveyard color ways, both on the Snug base.  I have already planned on using the American Graffiti colorway as part of the new West Knits MKAL that is coming up in a few weeks.
  • Olive Yarn in the Oyster and Seafoam colorways.  The third color I purchased, but sold to a friend, was a pale pink called Champagne.
