Episode 7: Lots About Knots

May 24, 2014 0 Comments


Thanks to everyone who contacted me during the week, I always love hearing from you!   This episode I'm wearing my Atelier by Heidi Kirrmaier knit out of Skein Merino Silk Sport in the colourway Savannah.


In The Studio

  • I talk about Stephen Wests newest design Vertices Unite using, among other yarns, our very own Top Draw Sock.  I also talk about the Westknits Summer Shawl Knit A Long
  • I mention that I'm finished the Yarnaholic order, which has been shipped off to Japan
  • I show off our new yarn bases which are a Superwash Merino Sport, Single ply lace and BFL Sock.  These have yet to be added to our shop!

In the Mail

  • Opal sock yarns in the Van Gogh colourways The Bridge, Garden at Arles and Sunflowers in a Vase.  Plus a free skein of Opal Sock yarn in the Sweet and Spicy colourway.
  • My new Addi Sock Rockets....LOVE!

Works In Progress

  •  Scylla socks for Paul out of my beautiful skein of Into the Whirled Ulundi sock in the colourway End of Summer.
  • Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl knit out of my new long colour repeat yarn in the Top Draw Sock base.  My project can be seen here.  I will be updating the shop with these new colourways on the 11th June.

Finished Objects

  • Vanilla Sock (own pattern) using Cleverchook - Evening Sky Self-Striping Sock Yarn.


  • This week I share tips on buying and knitting with hand-dyed yarns.


  • I was thinking of having a hand-dyed KAL using ANY hand dyed yarns that you have in your stash or that you have dyed yourself.  Would you be interested??? let me know over on the ravelry group or comment in the blog.


  • I talk about my first give away!  I'm giving away the two skeins of yarn that I dyed in the dyeing segment.  These are both Top Draw Sock yarns in a new colourway.  I would like help to name this colourway, so to enter head over to the group prize thread on ravelry and let me know what you think would be a good colour name.  One entry per person and you must be a member of the group to be eligible for a prize.  I'll pick two of my favorite names and announce the winner on the podcast.  Entries close 5th June.
