83 & 84: Turn a Heel, Turn a Corner & Knitting? Not So Much

Columbia Knitters Knit Night

Latte: Ben continues with Ebbtide and a self designed hat
Abby is continuing on the Berlin Socks, and the Adrian vest
Taste: We review Judith Makenzie's video The Gentle Art of Plying
Abby's undecided about her SpaKAL yarn. She's trying to decide whether or not to use it for Eadon.
Stir:Ben spun on a Turkish spindle and plied too! Abby cleaned and polished her wheel with Wood Beams and started a bump of Crown Mountain Farms Superwash Merino in San Francisco Nights,  
Take a Bite: We answer questions on subjects such as : Doctor Who, Sock knitting (again!)
We talk about socks. You can find sport weight patterns in Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson You can also download the Knitmore Vanilla Sock here.
Chai: Abby has been on the town! She saw A Streetcar Named Desire, War Horse and Peter and the StarcatcherBen  mentioned Kurt Vonnegut speaking about the trajectory of story plots. Abby also took a tour of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.  Abby even went to a Yankee game!
Ben went to the Hungarian Pastry Shop to have his spindling lesson.
Finally: Abby graduated and was ordained! If you are so inclined, you can actually watch the  ceremony here.
Karoline, who gave Ben a spindling lesson also made these amazing cupcakes for Knit Night.


  1. Personally, I think that every knitter's first sock should be made using Silver's sock tutorials. They are super-detailed and easy to understand.
