Episode 3: The Colorwork Class

On the Needles: 
Still working on the Sock Monkey. Hypothetically knitting the Skoufaki again - its all alpaca, so it stretched out.

Stashers Anonymous:
Support one another in trying not to get yarn! Will open up a thread for it by episode 4. Confesh: I got Lion Brand's Wool-Ease Worsted, but it was ONLY $3.75.

Knitting Trainwrecks:
The beginning of the Kyoto Cable legwarmers was all garter stitch done in the round, and I didn't even realize it. Frogged them twice. Also frogged another project three times, but its Super Secret, so can't mention it right now.


Knitting Finds: 
Knitty Winter 2011 is out. Looked at the Chrysanthemum Mitts, Java Socks, Sweetheart Socks and loved them; a little disappointed with the sweaters, especially the Constantine and the Joanie Sweaters. If you see a "KS" in the patterns index next to the title of a pattern, it means "KnittySpin" - patterns that work great with handspun, especially the Diversify Cowl. Now I am beginning to pay more attention to the Features section (lots of awesome stuff in there, like the Cool Stuff)


Knitting Daily iPhone app! Free! Two thumbs up.

Events: 
Brooklyn Tweed's Intro to Shetland Colorwork Class (I am at the very, very far right of the photo).
Felicia Lo of SweetGeorgia at Knitty City
My two friends and I with Jared Flood at Lion Brand Yarn Studio.

Fin!
Thanks again for being so patient with this episode, and my sincerest apologies for getting the shownotes out this late. As always, iTunes ratings and star reviews are greatly appreciated.

Closing Song: 
"Down at the 303" by The Cat Empire from their album "Cities - The Cat Empire Project" (Fan made video with good audio quality - this particular album not on iTunes)
