Episode 50 || Minis Yarn Club, Lofoten, and a Petticoat

I can hardly believe I've finally made it to Episode 50! What a milestone that is! 😱 The podcast has been so unpredictable throughout this year that I wasn't sure I'd ever get to this point. I want to thank each and every one of you who has watched, commented, liked, and subscribed. Your support means the world to me and I am so glad I get to talk about all of my crafty shenanigans with you. 😘

The theme for this first installment is: "An Old English Library". Each mini skein set will contain gorgeous autumn shades in a variety of variegated, tonal, and speckled colorways. All colorways are exclusive to the club for a whole year.

Lofoten Sweater | Finished Project

I've knit several cardigans over the past few years since I became more serious about knitting, but never dared brave the world of pullovers.

And then I saw Emily's podcast where she was talking about this new sweater design she was working on. As soon as I clapped eyes on it, I fell madly in love! I couldn't get it out of my mind. I immediately volunteered for test knitting, and started scheming up different colorway combinations.

Mina Philipp’s Cumulus Hat Pattern Review

I am fairly convinced that Mina Philipp is a super woman. She is a fantastic knitting pattern designer who is constantly creating some of the most beautiful patterns I've ever seen. I've wanted to be a pattern tester for her for some time, but, as you can imagine, the position is much desired by many knitters. Somehow, I managed to get my name in soon enough to be a tester for her newly released Cumulus Hat.

More Knits Ode To Spring Shawl Pattern Review

The day has arrived! Abby of the More Knits Podcast has released her latest design: the Ode to Spring shawl. This triangular shawl is made up of alternating sections of 2-color brioche and garter stitch. It is mindless and perfect for a cozy evening snuggled up to watch your favorite movie or tv show. There is enough changes to prevent boredom, but it isn't so complicated that you must be undistracted in order to work on it. I am so glad I was able to be a test knitter!
