Twisted Strands Ep. 7, The Birthday Episode

More bad singing, some hats, an idea on how to attach a pompom to the top of a hat, some beer, and a few thank yous!

This week’s yarn is:
Madil Luxor, white with silver strand

Stuff I’m working on:

Mystery sock Knitalong called Family Jewels from The Knitter’s Brewing Company. Color is Mulberry Sweet. You can join me in this knitalong in the Ravelry group The Knitter’s Brewing Co., and it is a free pattern.
Continuing work on the White Caps Fingerless Gloves with Cherry Tree hill Mixed berry Colorway.
I finished the Cabled Treat hat from Simply Knitting’s December issue.

I’m reading Buttercream Bump Off, a Cupcake Bakery Mystery book by Jenn McKinlay.

Thanks for watching!
Podcasts I’ve been watching/listening to are:
Electric Sheep
Mommy needs Yarn
His and Hers
Knitting Nirvana

Thank you, Lemonsong, for the lovely doll cardi pattern!
Thanks also go out to hkprettyinpink, didomum, and yesimthatlisa for reviewing Twisted Strands!

I’ve created a Ravelry Group for the podcast. It’s called Twisted Strands Podcast. We are up to over 100 members, yay! If you’d like to join, all are welcome!


  1. Happy Birthday! Great idea for a 40th birthday hat. I wonder what would be good for 50th and 60th birthdays. I've enjoyed watching your podcast. I'll have to remember your button tip if I ever have to sew a pompom on a hat.

  2. Merriest of birthdays to you! I love the cat hat. It looks really good on you.

  3. Happy Birthday! JD you are just adorable and such a hoot. I just love your podcast.

  4. Hey lady - thanks for the mention! LOVED the episode this week!
