Midnight Fiber and Fabric Podcast, Episode 12: Tangled

The Berry Socks are completeMy Mom's Socks are very close to done. I cast on another pair for her. I'm also worked on finishing my Citron and completed section 7. One more section and the ruffle to go!

I wound sock yarn this week, including a skein from Nerd Girl Yarns and part of a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere. I'm still trying to sort out the mess from that last skein.

SPAKAL= Spin Along, Knit Along event held by the Knitmore Girls. I ordered the fiber for my SPAKAL sweater from Spunky Eclectic- a grey Shetland wool. I will be spinning for the Harvest sweater by Tin Can Knits.

My goals for Tour de Fleece are to spin for at least 30 minutes each day, aiming for an hour on days I don't work (and of course taking breaks to protect my arms) and to try to finish the singles for my SPAKAL sweater by the end of the tour.

Want to spin along during Tour de Fleece? Join Team Sasquatch! The team is made up of several podcasters and podcast listeners all spinning together. You don't have to be spinning for the SPAKAL project or any other particular goal- set your own plan in place and join us for fun and conversation.

I LOVE Bic Mark-It Markers and keeping scissors everywhere I craft. SO convenient.

I introduce a new segment this week: Garden Notes. This week I have a guest host for this segment- my son Ender.

For the Try New Things segment, I talk about needles. I currently have interchangeable Addi Turbos that I use for any projects not knit on DPNs and I love them. I'm looking at getting some Addi Sock Rockets in the near future. I've been thinking about getting Signature DPNs, but that may have to wait to see how many DPNs I drop and lose in the near future. I'm also interested in trying out the Knitter's Pride Needles and Hiya Hiya needlesWhat are your favorite needles?
