Episode 111: No Joke

Episode 111: No Joke

Happy Wednesday, kittens! Today I have an FO to share, one WIP with a story of some angst it has caused, and lots of lovely spinning and fiber! My life has been pretty busy and full of some loss this week, but an amazing gift came my way too! Thank you for sharing some of your time with me today! Full show notes are at sewknitpicky.net and please consider joining the Knot A Podcast Ravelry group!

March 2015: Wrap-Up

Yardage Totals 2015:
January: 968yds
February: 159yds
March: 449yds
2015 Totals: 1,576yds or .90 miles



Kittens, this last month’s yardage tally is *still* pretty embarrassing.  True, I did knit 3 times as much in March as I did in February, but it’s clear that despite being a Knitter, knitting has not been a priority lately.  I’m hoping to remedy this soon or else my stash may grow thanks to prolific spinning and not much going out.  March was long and cold–really, no “lamb” to it at all–so I’m hoping April surprises us with some nicer weather and can at least keep the wind chills above 0ºF.   I’m ready to go outside without gloves on and get back to daily sock knitting at the bus stop!

Happy April, Kittens!  May yours be full of crafting goodness.
