Creativity, productivity, and community are three big benefits we've gained from 4 years of podcasting. In our 100th episode we have our usual project updates and then we spend some time reflecting on the experience of the last four years. Come join the community on Ravelry!
I have a lot to say about my Afterthought Socks! It's a looooooooong stockinette tube and I'll be putting on cuffs, toes, and heels. We had quite a discussion about how to measure the spot for the heel. I'm sure some of our listeners can set us straight. Leave a comment here or join in the discussion in our Ravelry group.
My other active project over the past two weeks is the Slacktide Scarf. It has a nice interesting stitch--the perfect antidote to a long, boring stockinette tube. I'm also planning for the Rabbit by Claire Garland and have ordered the yarn called for in the pattern.
I'm running out of yarn on the Running Water cardigan. I'm almost done with the collar band and then will start the sleeves. Meanwhile, I've started two new pairs of socks. One pair is using the Humble Bee pattern by Sara Bauer of the Yarns at Yin Hoo podcast. The other pair is variegated argyle socks using the chart I created on Stitch Fiddle. Start with row 71 to get 2 diamonds on the leg (one front and one back) and one diamond on the instep. All three projects are right at a part where I have to pay attention so I'm not able to knit at all during this recording.
A HUGE thank you to all our listeners! We never would have arrived at Episode 100 without you. You're feedback, encouragement, compliments, and suggestions have been so important to us. You have enabled us to create a wonderful community.
