In this episode I review the new Addi Flexiflip needles. I’ve also had an attack of ‘start-itis’ and went a little crazy casting on all the things. I can’t seem to resist pattern sales and stranded color-work and when you combine the two it can be dangerous.
In which the Mum talks about UFO Thursdays, sewing makes and the long awaited cable flare compensation swatch.
In which the Mum tells the story of the Guernsey Potato Peel Hat and talks of other knitting adventures.
In which the Mum talks about fiber goals in 2018 and decluttering her house.
This episode has lots of Wonderland chatter in it.
My rendition of the ever popular scrappy sock pattern is the Cheshire Stripe Sock. I love the look of a scrappy sock but hate weaving in all those ends so instead pick only four colors to knit with…..fewer ends to deal with!
This pattern is written for both the Magic Loop method and for double point needles. It is a top down pattern with an afterthought heel. I’ve added a link in the pattern to my YouTube video on how to knit jogless stripes.
The individual pattern price is $2.50 but comes as a freebie if you sign up for the 2018 Wonderland Sock Club that I mentioned in my last post. I hope you consider joining us next year as we knit six fun patterns.
