Twisted Strands Episode 23, A Blathering Blog

I talk about my busy weekend, show off my test knit sock and talk about how it is indeed possible to be enabled by a non-knitter in a yarn store.

Welcome to Episode 23


Don’t forget, now that June is upon us, World Wide Knit in Public day is almost here!
The days are from June 11th to June 19th, so grab your friends, get out there (with chairs, sun protection, and liquid refreshment and scare the un-initiated by making things with pretty, pretty thread ;)

Cape May Quilt & Fiber Show, Historic Cold Spring Village June 25-26, 2011
Historic Cold Spring Village’s 26th annual Quilt Show has expanded into a full-scale event celebrating all forms of fiber arts. In addition to voting for your favorite quilt, guests can take in workshops and demonstrations on knitting, crocheting, wool dyeing,
sheep shearing and more.

Knit along in the group, Japanese Garden Shawl, designed by Wendy Johnson.

Mablesocks, a pattern by Sadie Ruin (from Yarnivore) with Pagewood Farms Alyeska yarn.
Watermelon socks as a treat for myself. Abi Grasso dyed the yarn and wrote the pattern I’m using for it. is the URL for her shop. Her self-patterning yarn is full of awesome!
