Episode 14 - Whoa, a new episode!

That's right ladies and gents, a new episode!

Expect detailed show notes some time in the next 24 hours, in the meantime, enjoy my breathy ramblings about socks and such.

No story this time, I'm on vacation and forgot my reading material.

Shownotes! Topics include:

When is a rainbow not a rainbow? When you knit socks out of Mini Mochi yarn!

Cashmere lace scarf update. So sad.

Sock update, of course, including socks made with Lovesticks BFL - I really like this yarn!

Aestlight shawl by Gudrun Johnston

scarf 023

Tip - yes, you can splice superwash sock yarn! Make sure to really press your palms together as you add heat and friction

Where all my knitting time has gone lately - into knitting samples.

Juniper sock yarn - yummy!

Rowan Felted Tweed Aran
- not my bag, baby, nor is the new Spud & Chloe Sweater, though I may not be giving the yarn its due.

News - I ripped out my first sweater!

Movies Recommended: I Capture The Castle & The Edge of Love

I heart the new Fall Rowan Magazine

Check out the new Stitches in Time Podcast group on Ravelry!

Time to get out your Autumnal Colors! I am looking forward to another skein of Knitterly Things self-striping yarn in Trick or Treat!

Whoa people! 2 months I haven't podcasted! I do miss it. There have been technical issues. My IT guy (aka boyfriend) hasn't felt like installing the proper systems so that I can run Audacity without it crashing constantly as we are now running Windows 7, and neither have I. So I guess that's technically called laziness. He has promised to have it up and running quite soon so that I can podcast at my home away from home - chez maman. I will be visiting my mommy for a couple of weeks! Yay! So instead of coming to you from the foggy Bay Area, I will be coming to you from the foggy redwoods of Humboldt County. And moving forward, I promise not to make any more promises about podcasting frequency.

A lot has happened in the last two months. Lace screwups, lots of socks, sweater ripping, and a brief spell at Sock Summit. Thanks for keeping tuned in, hopefully we will be back on our feet quite soon.
