Podcast Episode 53: Show Notes!
Posted on June 10, 2022
All the everything from the Fiber & Fox Podcast Episode 53:
Renovations are underway! Sort of a wild temporary set up, bare with me a few more weeks and we will get things more polished up for you!
Finally, finally getting somewhere on my upcoming addition to my dandelion stitch collection! The Dandelion Disperse Shawl is out with testers! I worked it up in 3 “lucky strike” colorways by Fiber for the People yarn and couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome! Wanna brush up on dandelion stitch? I have a tutorial to get you ready for the upcoming pattern release!
I’m wearing the Odyssey Cardigan by Ambassador Crochet. Perfect summery lace throw over garment! And for more inspiration on my favorite spring/summer makes, check out tours of my handmade summer wardrobe from 2020 and 2021!
I finished making another of my my Be Brave Baby Blanket for the coming arrival of our son! We used the one I designed for my daughter SO MUCH and definitely needed one for him too. The original yarn was discontinued, but I subbed a slightly heavier weight but similar yarn: Yarn Bee Bamboo-tiful in the colors Cognac, Mist, Basil, & Mustard. Definitely recommend for a lightweight, bag stuffable blanket pattern!
Also finished another baby make for a friend expecting a daughter this year! My favorite go to for tiny ladies is always the Lace Cardigan by Mon Petit Violon. I made some modifications and worked with mystery yarn from my stash and some random vintage buttons- it’s a great, easily modifiable pattern to do that with!
Gotta have more socks! I cast on a pair of Juniper Grove Socks by The Blue Mouse using some remnant cones from a visit to Green Mountain Spinnery again on a quick VT trip (watch a full tour of their amazing mill and process here!!!). Emily also has a new series on sock knitting basics out on her YouTube channel if you’re looking to get started on sock knitting! Need more sock knit basics and getting started inspo? Check out my box of socks videos from 2020 and 2021.
MOHAIR. I got more mohair and I need help on what to do with it. Ranunculus? Love Note? Salty Air tee? What I REALLY want in the Jules Genser by Sandes Garn from the 2202 booklet but that’s proving to be really hard to get my hands on! HELP!
Oh, and stay tuned for an upcoming vlog to Marji’s Yarncrafts/an adventure around Granby, Connecticut. But for now, check out my shop hop vlog from last year to Marji’s, or the whole playlist of LYS and event vlogs, including the full I-91 Shop Hop from last year (happening again from CT to VT in August 2022!)
And that’s it…That’s all the everything for this episode – see you in episode 54…mayyybeeee in my new office?!
