Welcome to Episode 5!

Our current projects:

Julia:  Showed off some spinning- a silk blend single. Also showed work on a pair of Hat Heel socks and demonstrated the Embellish Knit.

Sue: Created a clay mushroom jewelry holder and showed off stash acquisitions.

DIY: Troubleshooting knitting

Julia showed techniques to fix problems beginners might find including twisted stitches, dropped stitches, unwanted increases (at the end of rows and by yarnover), picking up ladders, and figuring out knitting direction. Sue demonstrates for us.

Stitch markers were won by Arletha and Linda through the Ravelry group. Congratulations! Please contact Julia with your address.

Thanks to Josephine for my first Ravelry purchase of the Flip Toppers Children’s Mitts and to Morgen for sharing her stash!  What nice surprises! Please continue to visit us and leave comments/iTunes ratings.  We love to hear from you!
