Episode 37 – All the Knitalongs

Woohoo! I finally put up shownotes! The episode has been up for awhile, but I hope you enjoy it just the same 🙂

Fiber:

  • I finished another pair of ZigZagular socks (pattern by Susie White) out of yarn from One Twisted Tree, BFL base in the “Geographical Oddity” colorway. I used the Band Heel by Lara Neel from the Socks My Way Craftsy class.
  • I started a pair of socks out of Manos Del Uruguay Alegria in the “Fondo del Mar” colorway, I’m using the Whiz Bang pattern by Sarah Shoo. I’m knitting these for Camp Loopy toe-up to use at least 400 yards.
  • I have been spinning some Into the Whirled Shetland in the “Starrennacht” colorway. This was my first fractal spin and I absolutely adore it.

Review:

  • For this episode I am reviewing the Craftsy Class Socks My Way – Variations on Heels and Toes by Lara Neel
