Episode 14: On the Joys of 100% Wool and Knitwear Design

Hello Knitters!

In this episode, I SAY that I'm going to give my opinions on the pros and cons of two woolen spun yarns, but upon reflection, I don't actually give my opinions at all. I present the facts and leave you to form your own opinions. Isn't that democratic of me?

Also, I forgot to mention that one of my favorite podcasters is knitting my Gigi sweater!  Tracie of the Grocery Girls podcast got her kit from Barrett Wool in the Sherwood colorway and will be casting on soon.  If she talks about it on the podcast, I might bust from joy. (I'm such a nerd...)

P.S. Madelinetosh Tosh Sock is 100% merino wool and is a superwash.  Just as I suspected...

See below for links to the stuff I talk about here. I hope you enjoy this episode, and feel free to drop me a line if you want to. I love hearing from you guys!  :)

  1. Great episode!
    I have knit sweaters with superwash twice before..... I've decided it just does not have the structure that 100% wool does! And superwash can be very (pilly). I will only use superwash now for baby and children's garments.
    Great listening as I finish my Montague street!!!
    Thank You!
