Listen to the Episode

Topics Include:

Charity knitting:

The Red Scarf Project & Afghans for Afghans

This year I have knit some hats for Afghans for Afghans

Book Review - Knitting For Peace - do pick it up, either at the library, or your local book shop!

I think I shall have to knit for the Mother Bear Project later this year.

Spring has sprung!

Check out this fabulous free pattern by Knitting Kninja on Popknits! The Day's Eye Hat

What I'm knitting:

The Bubble Pullover by Norah Gaughan - check out the other projects! (This sweater looks great on everyone!)

Using Joseph Galler Peruvian Tweed (Ravelry link)- I like it!

Lace! - I highly recommend the Shetland Tea Shawl from A Gathering of Lace - make sure to get the 2007 edition to avoid as many errors as possible.

Using Cascade Alpaca Lace - a good deal and a nice yarn.

On hold for now - Spanish Peacock Shawl - you can clearly see from the pictures which people lined up the chart and which did not (a spiral effect).

Thanks to Brooke for helping me!

Also recommended - the Ostrich Plumes pattern from the second Barbara Walker Treasury - check out the Treasury Project while you're at it!

A discussion of repetitive lace patterns vs. The Mystic Waters lace shawl

The Knit Kit!

Of general interest: A transparent fish! See it in action.
