Stranded Podcast - Episode 36

Administration: The CowlKAL is closed - I will be drawing prizes in next week's episode. 

I'm hosting a giveaway for 2000 subscribers in the ravelry group - head over and leave a comment with what your last finished object was, and be in with a chance of winning a gorgeous notions pouch from Pink Hazeland a skein of Stranded Dyeworks Paradise MCN in the 'Koi' colourway. You have until March 7th to get your entries in!

We have a new moderator in the Ravelry group for the podcast - please give a warm welcome to the lovely ClaraPeggoty aka. my friend Nicky! 

I am currently NOT taking custom orders in my shop - due to being busy with a wholesale project and prepping for a trunk show. 

What am I wearing?: I am wearing the Spring Beret by Natalie Larson out of some Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran (not linking that yarn! You can google it when you're done judging me for using it ;P ). I am also wearing a shawl knit for me by my mum - The Linus Shawl by Annett Cordes, knit out of a gradient set by Woo Sheeps in the 'Shoots and Leaves' colourway. Finally, I'm wearing my Old Romance cardi by Joji Locatelli, knit out of Madeline Tosh Sock in the 'Moorland' colourway.

FO's: I've finished Ann's Go To Socks by Ann Budd out of Twist Fiber Studio Fairview Fingering in the 'Lakeside' colourway.

WIP's: My Pavement Sweater by Veera Välimäki out of Malabrigo Sock in the 'Piedras' colourway is well under way! I'm nearly finished with the body.

I have cast on a pair of toe up vanilla socks out of glorious Watermelon self striping by the lovely Hand Dyed By Kate

I'm also working on my Granny Stripe afghan - which has seen a fair amount of progress since the last time I shared it! 

Future Knitting: I have decided to cast on a Vertices Unite by Stephen West - as seen in West Knits Best Knits Vol. 1 - out of some Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles. The colourways I mention are... 'Fool's Gold', 'Fly', 'Boombox', 'Zephyr', 'Oracle' and 'Bounce'.

Questions: I talk about how I joined my two knitting groups - for East Sussex based people I mention this ravelry group. 

I also talk about my Sock Blank club from last year - and promise that I will be doing another club at some point this year! 

Stash Enhancement: A sock blank from Laughing Yaffle in the 'Melt All The Crayons' colourway.

Beautiful minis and a skein of yarn in the 'Pansy Parkinson' colourway from Paper Stories

A skein of Norah George Yarns in the 'Time Turner' colourway.

Shop Update: This week's shop update will be on Friday March 3rd at 10am GMT.
