Episode 10 – La Vie Lives!

20 Jul

In this episode, I show off several things and mumble on for a good eleven minutes.  Among other things:

  • I completed the La Vie de Bois Sock pattern, had it test knit, made the necessary changes and put it up for sale on Ravelry.  I love this sock and hope you love it, too!
  • The foam blocking mats I bought and told you about last time are hard at work holding a gauge swatch.  They work great!
  • Test skeins of yarn are all dyed up and are drying.  I’ll be knitting a swatch out of one of them to show how the new dye method looks.  The test skeins all have a knot in them, so if you like what you see you can score one cheap from the shop soon!
  • Grabby Hands:  Lusty Yarns.  Seriously.  Go there.  Buy lots.

There is a lot more going on that I haven’t or can’t mention just yet, but soon (I hope).  Stay tuned!

  1. Heather, I adore the subtle variagation of the yarn in the swatch square. I can’t wait to learn more about it.

    FYI your blocking mats may benefit from a sharpie grid to give you square guides or I have used a large check gingham fabric to cover my mats and give me a grid background.
