Episode 128

Today I'm wearing the Hakone Cardigan by Amy Herzog, knit from Berroco Ultra Alpaca in January 2015.

I talk about participating in the second Initiate Knit Design Challenge with Aroha Knits.  I think she'll be running another one in the future, so you might want to sign up for her newsletter or follow her on social media if you think you might be interested in participating.

I'm so excited to be announcing a HUGE giveaway from Kinfolk Yarn & Fibre on the next show, so don't miss out, and make sure you watch it as soon as it comes out!  There will be yarn and fiber!!

I'm currently spinning some really nice Superwash BFL in Wanderlust from Kinfolk Yarn & Fibre.

I take a look at dyeing and knitting with Kraemer Yarns - Sophia, a sport weight, undyed yarn tailored to the hand dyer. I used RIT Dye in Denim and Teal that I picked up from Michael's.

I would really love to try out some of the other Kraemer Yarns bases, I've enjoyed the Sophia so much.  Thanks to Kraemer for providing the yarn, and to Stitchcraft Marketing for arranging the yarn for me to review.

When I dyed up the Sophia base (merino, silk, cotton, linen), I used some of the techniques I learned in the Professional Yarn Dyeing At Home Craftsy class.  I would highly recommend both the Kraemer Yarns Sophia base as well as this class.

The pom pom maker I showed was the 3 3/8" Clover Pom Pom Maker.  Keep an eye out on Twitter and Instagram for the release of both the Sandpiper rectangular shawl and the Watershed Hat!

I mentioned the release of my Watershed Cowl and Mata Shawl.

I'm gearing up for Knit City and excited to hear Ysolda Teague and Stephanie Pearl McPhee speak.

See you next week!!
