On the Needles


Off The Needles
  • First up- the socks I was knitting for Dan using Theresa Gaffney’s Socks pattern from the Wearwithall Book. Results: he absolutely loves them. They have pilled a little bit but so far are wearing well even with machine washing.
  • I knit two of the Cornwell Park Shrugs by Kelly Brooker for the flower girls in my friend Erika's wedding! They came out so cute and were such a fun knit.

  • I test knit the Twisted Coast Mitts pattern by Lori Schaffer of the HappyCrafter207 Podcast. Love the cable detail!!

  • I knit the Oak Trail Hat by Alana Dakos out of her new Botanical Knits Book for my best friend Krissy's birthday.

Events
  • The Out of this World KAL is nearing its end. Kudos to those of you who have made it this far! I'm having so much fun with all of you!
  • On Sunday May 5th from 3-5p I'm teaching a class on how to use the GoodReader App for your knitting patterns at the Stitch House in Dorchester. The class is $20. For more details, visit their website or call (617) 265-8013. 
  • NH Sheep and Wool Festival is coming up on May 11 & 12 at the Deerfield Fairgrounds in Deerfield, NH. I’ll be attending on Saturday 5/11 with my friend Ryan, and maybe Mom!


In My Travels

Dan and I went to Montego Bay, Jamaica in March. Here are some photographs from our trip.











On a Serious Note

This is not a regular segment on this podcast, but with the events of the Marathon Bombing in Boston this past week it seemed right to do a little retrospective on what happened and my experience. Apologies for rambling but it wasn't something I had the heart to sit and write out notes for, so I went off the cuff. In doing so I forgot to mention a very important point. Please visit The One Fund for information on how you can help those in need following the tragic events in Boston. Four have died, and so many have been severely injured; their lives will never be the same. If you're able to help, please consider donating.

A Contest

Tune in to hear if you've won the Episode 25 contest for the copy of the Vide eBook.

Thanks for listening! Talk to you soon!

  1. What lovely pictures of your trip and how fun to see Dan! (Surely that's not the man who went on and on about you knitting at dinner, right?) :-)
