Knot A Podcast: Episode 38

Knot A Podcast: Episode 38 from SewKnitpicky on Vimeo.

It’s a really short one this week, kittens!  But it’s full of prizes and some crafting content too.  Are you all excited for Back to School season?  I know I am; it means a clean(er) home and more time to get my craft on.

♥ Please swing by the Ravelry group and say hello!
♥ The YouTube channel is finally up to date and ready to go.
♥ This is the one year birthday for the podcast.  The first episode was recorded on 05 September 2012.  I had no idea at the time that I would keep doing this for a year.
SiTs 2013 is ov-ah!  There were three prizes to compete for and the winners are: $10 pattern/s on Ravelry-post #13 by phoenixfire, 2 Ball Sock sack- post #37 by Raeknitsnwa, and the Vesper “Rainbow Love” colorway- post #38 by rosebob.  Congratulations, ladies!  Everyone did an amazing job during the blazing hot summer months!  There were 41 pairs of socks completed in our small group; that’s quite an accomplishment.  You all are sock knitting rock stars. 😀

2013 Kiss Apples

♥ Still plugging away on my Hermione’s Everyday Socks.  I’m just over the half-way point on sock #2.

Stitcher’s Corner:
♥ I finished my Summer Sampler and have moved on to my neglected 2012 Dessert of the Month sampler from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.

Next on Deck:
♥ A birthday surprise for my daughter.
♥ A sweater for me out of some Skein.

It’s that’s time of the month, kittens.  Time to see how much I knit.  Between Sock it to Summer, the sticky weather we’ve been having, and my love affair with cross stitch still going strong…the answer is, “not much.”  With the cooler weather coming and plans to cast on a sweater mid-September, I’m sure my numbers will be up again for the fall and winter.
