Episode 16: How to be a Patron

Hello Knitters!  I hope you enjoy this episode, and I hope you'll be a patron of my podcast by sending me a message and being my friend.  :)  Nothing is more motivating to a podcaster than contact.  It keeps us podcasting.  See how it's only been 2 weeks since my last episode?  Thanks to you.  :)

New Designs

Hey there, Knitters!

Here are a few of my latest designs for you to peruse.

This photo shoot was so fun.  This is what it sounded like:

Devin: Does this look ok?
Husband: Yeah, just don't make your face look stupid.


Devin: How about this?
Husband: Clothing should not take this long to arrange.


Devin: (smiling)
Husband: (backing up) I need to back up to get your ridiculously long arms in the frame.


Devin: Can you edit this to make my arms look muscular?
Husband: Sure. There are weights in the basement.

So, I'm smiling a lot because he cracks me up.  I have to laugh at myself a lot, but that's ok. I don't mind.

This is the shawl made from Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in the Hayloft, Tartan and Fossil colorways.  I talk about it in episodes 14 and 15 of my podcast. It is completely reversible, including the cable!  What do you think?

Here is the colorwork cowl with the geometric rhombus-y pattern. I love how it turned out but my husband doesn't like the color palette. I was thinking it would look awesome in GRAY. Maybe black, white and a few shades of gray.  Tell me what you think!

These patterns will be out sometime soon! Stay tuned and let me know what you think!  :)

Also, here are the uninspiring WIP pictures of the shawl for my daughter and my new cardigan design!  Squeeeeee!

Above is the child's size shawl in Barrett Wool Wisconsin Woolen Spun fingering in the Birch, Blushing and Rain Shower colorways. Her birthday is sooooooooon!

And THIS. This is my new baby. This is the back of the sweater in squishy, delicious garter stitch.  See those short row panels?  LOVE.  I will be looking for test knitters in mid-October!  :)  :)  :)

Episode 15: Knitting Fantasies

Hey Knitters!

I hope you enjoy this latest episode where I give you permission to have knitting fantasies.  It's ok. You can do it. I encourage it, even. What are YOUR knitting fantasies?  Do share them with us.

The Isabell Kraemer sweater I love is called ARWEN.  Not Antwerp. Or Azula.  Why don't I write these things down?

Sorry there's no cute Knitty picture this time.  Not sure what happened there... But the episode will still play if you click it and you can find all that stuff I mentioned on the podcast (and some I forgot) below.

And click here for pics of the new designs I talk about in this episode!
