Since I’ve decided to only knit the leg in colorwork, I no longer need to “do a stripe a month” for my advent socks. I knit the final leg stripe and I’m now just knitting a traditional heel, foot, and toe. The sock indeed is quite tight to get over my heel so I’m going to have to block it strongly (fingers crossed). Good lesson so that I knit the next colorwork sock more loosely. I already used a Size 2 needle instead of size 1 but the issue is the floats of course. Need to be more generous. Worse case, I rip out the foot and make them into fingerless mitts!!
My Sailormoon sweater is coming along. I do love it. I’m almost ready to join the front and start knitting the body. I discovered I miss counted so I have to go back to the left front and add 10 more rows before joining.😣
WHAT I’M WATCHING/LISTENING TO
I’m always looking for podcasts to watch or listen to. I have been watching Grocery Girls, Patty Lyons, and Fruity Knitting regularly for over a year. I love it when I can catch Grocery Girls or Patty Lyons Live but enjoy that I can watch an episode later if I miss it. Andrea’s knitting skills are why beyond anything I aspire to so it’s harder for me to relate to Fruity Knitting episodes. Recently I have started listening to Very Pink as they have restarted their audio podcasting. I definitely don’t always agree with Staci but the episodes have been interesting. I have been enjoying Rox Knits the past few months, mainly her Casual Friday episodes of tidbits. I just discovered Fleece & Harmony video podcasts. I think I’ll go back and watch some of the old ones. I have found that I prefer “friends talking about their knitting” to lessons. I like more “background noise” versus a knitting lesson. What are your favorite video and audio podcasts?
