Sponsored by Quince & Co and my Longaberger home business. Leave a comment on the show blog to be entered into a drawing for your choice of Sabrina Mitts, Abbey Road Socks, or Barcelona Scarflet and the Tern yarn to make your project.
Nature: Pileated Woodpecker sighting and info about pileated woodpeckers. Foxes and Fox Sparrows.
Needle Notes: 9 inches left on my Norwegian Sweater. I identify a malady. It's Shawl Withdrawal Syndrome. I have not knitted a shawl since Feb 1. This is shocking! I need to stop the madness and get started on one ASAP. In the Fix It Challenge I knit about 4 rows on a ribbed stocking hat that was too small to give to my dad as a gift. I share how I sew in the tails on ribbing to make this cap reversible. See show notes for photo tutorial.
Blethering Room: More comfort knitting from 3 Pipeliners. Estelle by Melissa LaBarre is a possibility for a KAL.
Review Notes: Knitting Traditions by Interweave Knits. Highly Recommended. Get it before May 15, 2011.
Music: Irish Set by Celtic Cross Pipes and Drums. Recorded at rehearsal on March 24, 2011.
