Episode 28: Finishing and Blocking

This week I talk about tig welding wires and why you might want them, my GORGEOUS GREY SWEATER and why I stuck wires through it (but those will come out), some of my scattered design process and how I carefully avoid sewn seams.

I also mentioned:

My Local Yarn Shop


Film and Fiber - A great new podcast with a podcaster who is taking a tenny break because of her morning sickness. Everyone go tell her it gets better (I've been told, I don't know).

Greetings from Knit Cafe

If you look, you may notice that the link to the book is a UK site I heard about on Sticks and String. I have not tried this shop, but it looks like a good alternative to Amazon, if you want to try it.

and then I went online and looked for corrections for the above book.

It's a great book and I don't think I've reviewed it yet, but it's in the pile.

And now, my dragontooth sweater:

WOW you are a pro!! that is amazing, if I thought a sweater I knitted would actually look that good I'd stop making all these baby clothes...

Wow Lara! The sweater came out beautifully! You should be proud! You've inspired me to try a stitch pattern in my next top down sweater, instead of plain stockinette.

Thanks so much for the kind words about my podcast, and for playing my promo! The nausea stuff seems to have lessened over the last few days (knock on wood) and I'm really hoping to have a new episode out tomorrow, so cross your fingers for me!

Hi Lara,

This comment comes a bit late, but I'm catching up on podcasts.

The sweater looks lovely! I will need to buy those Pattern Treasuries...

My best tip for remembering how many skeins/balls the garment took: weigh the finished garment!
