Episode 104

{show notes ~ episode one oh four}

It's been a month and a half since we last talked!  Yikes! Where has the time gone?  On the bright side, I have a tonne of finished objects and works in progress to show you!

I've opted to give a quicker than usual run-through of my projects this time, so if you have any questions about any of them, please send me a message on Ravelry, and I'll do my best to answer any questions on the next show!

Baby #2 is due to arrive at any time now, so the next show will be dependent on when she arrives, but fear not, I will record again as soon as possible!

  • Looking at Low Twist Handspun by Hilltop Cloud. I highly recommend checking out this blog post if you're at all curious about the effects of twist in your yarn on knitted lace. Really interesting to see the comparison pictures!

I wish I had a subscription to Ply Magazine so I could read the rest of the article! It's just not particularly accessible in Canada yet (between the high shipping rates and the plummeting Canadian dollar). Any word on a digital version?
