Episode 18 Show Notes:

Welcome to the Episode 18 of the Knit Actually Podcast!

·         Actually Working

·         I talk about projects I am currently working on including

o    Windschief Hat for my husband

o    Sockhead Hat for me!


o    Baley Sweater for my son


·         Actually Hand Dyed


o    I dyed a BUNCH of things this week!!! First, I skeined up the yarn I dyed in the class I took at Fancy Tiger Crafts  

o    I kettle dyed some Aran weight MCN in Peacock Blue for a hat for my husband for Christmas


o    I hand dyed some MCN Fingering, which I’m using for my Sockhead Hat

o    I made two attempts at speckled yarn, on a DK stellina base. The first one is lovely, but definitely not speckled


o    And the second turned out pretty much exactly how I wanted it to

o    THEN, I tried stencilling a sock blank, and I was pretty happy with the results on my first try

o    Last I dyed some self striping yarn, and I feel like I’ve finally got the hang of it!
