|OK listeners, how would YOU turn on the water?|
Latte: I'm still working on: Twisted Flower Socks, SPAKAL Sweater (Bright and Sunny), Ben's Mitts and I cast on a Wingspan shawl out of Mini Mochi.
Flavor of the Day: I've been wearing lots of knitted items: Ptarmigan Cowl, Cassidy, Ada Lovelace Anklets, Vine Yoke Cardi, Clapotis, Klieo, Tribute socks, Summer sliding socks, Stricken socks, Uptown Girl socks and Elektra.
Brewing: I've been thinking about the adage "Form follows function." After staying in a hotel room where the bathroom had been renovated into all squares. The form and function of the bathroom "appliances" seemed to have nothing to do with each other. This doesn't work! It doesn't work in knitting and it doesn't seem to work in home furnishings either. What's going on here? What do you think?
Taste: I review Knit New York by Emma King
Stir: I did some spinning at Madrona (of course) which I will detail more in a later episode. I did, however, acquire some fiber, namely: Crown Mountain Farms Superwash Merino in the color way Season of the Witch, Opulent Fibers 70% merino, 30% Tussah silk in a fire engine red and Woolgatherings Organic Polwarth in the colors of spring crocuses. I also got some undyed Jacob fiber, Merino Cross and BFL/silk, all from Crown Mountain. Mary, my Fairy Godmother, gave me some Abstract Fiber 50/50 Cashmere/Silk in the color Malificent - so named by Laura the Joy of Cooking Fairy.
At Madrona, I also purchased a wee bit of yarn.
I frogged my Color Affection/Affliction. I had a look at it and it just didn't appeal to me anymore. I will knit it again, with a different third yarn.
