TVKnittingpodcast Episode 46


Finally separated the sleeves for the Hoaloha sweater!!

Loving this knit. You can see the blue pooling a bit on the left side. 

I also knit on my plain vanilla socks at the movies. This is what it looked like before I went to the movies:

And this is what the sock looked like after I got home and popped it out of my purse.

Ta Da!!

Self-Striping Yarn is from Ladybug fibers on Etsy. I call them my "Watermelon Socks"

Off topic alert: This is my spring bag:

I bought it at the Gap (naturally). It is a little big, but it holds all my daily "stuff" with lots of room for knitting!

The other thing I knitted on this week was a test-knit from Kim of the Craftstash Podcast.

Here's a sneak peek!

Yarn is Tosh Merino DK in the Glazed Pecan colorway. (I found the ball band.)

So....if I had a section for Knitting Attacks (what The Knitmore Girls call it) this would be it. Or should I call it "Frogging Attacks"

Tried to frog an FO. Couldn't find the woven in end, so yeah, I ended up with a disaster.

Any suggestions?

Yarn is "Lush" (Not Luxe as I referred to it on the podcast) from Classic Elite. It is no longer sold.

((Sigh)) I guess I'm going to have to frog on.

Confessions of a Newbie Spinner:

This is the Into The Whirled "Take it to the Bridge" Luxe colorway that I spun. Merino Silk blend.

All Done!!

Will be plied this week. Going to make a "Hitchhiker" shawl for my daughter.

This Week in TV:

I talked about the "All My Children" re-boot. Premiering April 29th on Hulu!

I also talked about "Once Upon a Time", "Revenge" and "Pretty Little Liars."

In the "Spotted" section, It was an all "Once Upon a Time" all the time, because there are so many knitted items, knitting references, and spinning references as well!

One of our listeners gave us a challenge to come up with a cocktail with Kahlua that has no milk/cream. This is what Rich came up with:

Lynette's Black Irishman

1 part Irish Whiskey
1 part Kahlua
1/2 part Amaretto

Pour over rocks, Mix together. Or (for "up"), shake in shaker, and pour into a martini glass. Enjoy!

(I actually really liked the taste of this one. Rich has been drinking them at "Bartime" this month.)

I'll see if I can get a pic. I don't think it would tak much convincing for him to make one. ;)

We talked about our daughter's school (FGCU) and we were anticipating the game against San Diego State that evening. They won! And the win was historic!

Here are pics of the beach that my daughter's dorms are on:

Nice huh? Yeah. She has never set foot on it.

At least she is studying! (I hope)
