Episode 14 The Stealth Approach to Socks

Show notes for the Knitting Pipeline Podcast  can be found on the show blog

Since tweaking my blog design the Followers are not showing up.  I cannot figure this out.  If you are a blogger on Blogspot and have any hints, please let me know.

I am going to set a schedule for myself to update this blog more regularly, even if it is just a short post.  I thought by now I would be a lot more efficient in producing the weekly podcast but it still takes me many hours to get the notes done, record, edit, upload, and write blog posts.  I should probably just have one blog but I am still attached to this one and will use it for knitting and some more personal writings.

I am still going to mention here when a new episode is up.  I added a flash player in the side bar.  If you click in the lower left corner there is a menu.  All the episodes are available here so you can listen without an external listening device.

In this podcast I talk about the finished project, Hurdy Gurdy Cardigan by Lynda Gemmell.  Notes on my Ravelry page.  I bought the kit at Stitches.  The colors spoke to me and I had to knit it even though I don't really have an intended wearer.  Actually,  I am planning on sending the little sweater to Botswana where I am sure it will be worn a lot and passed along.  This makes me very happy. 

  • Ribbed button band instead of garter stitch band
  • Shorter sleeves than pattern recommended
  • My little extra touch are the buttons, both lavender and lime green, alternating.

I really admire how you take your time to make all those lovely little details.

This is a really cute sweater, Paula. I love the special details. Sometimes we just HAVE to make something just because we do. I'm sure it will be worn, and warm, and loved.
