Thank you for listening to my new podcast! This is Episode 2, and I am really enjoying my new podcasting adventures. I was holding a sleeping baby during this recording so I apologize for my voice sounding much more sleepy this week. I hope you enjoy it! Blessings!
-Knitting Butterflies can now be found on iTunes! Please subscribe and leave a review!
-You can always find me on my blog, Ravelry, and Instagram. I will continue blogging as projects get finished but the podcast will have much more information, hopefully the two will go hand in hand well.
-Thank you to all the listeners for the amazing support as I started this podcast!
-Minion Hats have taken over our house and children. So far 3 of the 4 are finished, I made up the pattern myself.
-Alana Dakos's pattern Sprig is my new covet, I have some Cascade 220 from the Loopy Ewe. I am swatching and hoping my measurements will still work for after I am nursing. (Thoughts?) I picked out the colorway with help from a pink-haired girl who reminded me of Jasmin from the Knitmore Girls.
-Still working on the first 4 oz. of Woolen Mills St. Yarn's corriedale in Juliette Jules. I have plied all my singles so far and have one more ounce to go. Plans for the finished yarn are probably a hat and mittens.
Remember and Reminisce-
-In honor of the movie Catching Fire coming out tomorrow, I decided to talk about my Girl on Fire scarf. It's knit with Brown Sheep Company's Wildfoote in Circus, a beautiful project but not the best yarn for this particular type of project. I am also planning on knitting another one in Cascade 220 in Rainier Heather for my friend's birthday in December.
Countdown to 30-
-When I headed into my 20's I hated facial hair. After visiting BetterWithABeard.tumblr.com I changed my ways, and I have been recently caught staring at my husband's awesome beard instead of listening to what he is saying. No Shave November is the best thing ever.
-We painted all the walls a beautiful filmy green and the ceiling a contractor bone color. Plans to build the built in bookshelves, entertainment center, and window seat will hopefully go underway tomorrow. Do you think we will make it in by Christmas?
-Orange-Maid shared an amazing Chinese Waitress cast on with our Ravelry group, I am super excited to start a new project with it! Maybe that Falling Water scarf?
-MaggieVienna from shared the first FO in our group, she has also been incredibly supportive in the start of this podcast and her hat is super cute!
-Debbie4 made in incredible Glacier Sweep shawl in Dragonfly Fibers Starry Night and Daffodil, it looks just like the Van Gogh painting! I want one for my home decor.
-Mimers has a great podcast called Hudson Valley Knits, she is hosting a knit along for gifts. The Dragonfly Fibers Starry Night is the prize, so join in and check out her podcast!
-Windybrook Spinner asked what my favorite species of butterfly is, it's the Blue Morpho butterfly from Latin America.
-I love The Fat Squirrel Speaks, maybe I might accidentally end up talking like her sometime.
I will not be podcasting next week (Thanksgiving) but I plan on doing a bi-weekly schedule. The response to this podcast has been great so far, and I have some very exciting events coming up and even giveaways and reviews for the listeners! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday week, and I will talk to you soon!
