Good morning Tuesday,
I had a fabulous knit night last night, and as I wrote on Twitter – the pattern Knit Night that I featured in my last blog post is living up to expectations. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a knit night pattern, or indeed a pattern you can knit when you don’t want to have to think too much. It is working beautifully with the skein I chose, more details later in the week.
Each week I thought I would do a little round up of things I have encountered on my journey.
This week I have three gems for you.
1) This poem popped up in my reader this morning. It is from the blog “All She Wants to Do is Knit” by Caity Rosey. Given that this weekend I taught a magic loop, two at a time knitting class I thought it was rather apt. I really enjoy this blog, pop over and have a look.
2) Last week I discovered a new podcast. This is a new venture by Louise from the blog knitbritish.net. I can’t believe I have only just discovered this blog, it is brilliant and I think the podcast will become a firm favourite. She has already enabled me to buy a book about Shetland. In fairness it was not very difficult to twist my arm into buying a book that combines history, Shetland and knitting. If you have some time I highly recommend listening to this podcast.
Talking about British Wool brings me to number three.
3) Brigantia Wool. A good solid Yorkshire wool stocked by my LYS, the fabulous Ginger Twist Studio. This stuff is magic, it knits up like a dream and the colours are beautiful. I have a pair of socks on the needles at the moment in the DK. It is a light DK, more like a sport. It is perfect for sturdy socks. I also have a shawl planned and want to knit a jumper. It is excellent value for money, go on …. try some, you know you want to.
