Knitting Pays Off

All spring I have been knitting the daylights out of the In The Light pattern, I finished one here, here and here. I was inspired to knit this project thanks to Chevas of the Chevyrell’s stuff podcast. Not only did I learn about the In The Light pattern from her but she was hosting a #YarnCoitusMAL this spring. The only requirement was to use two or more indie dyed yarns in one project. Well I entered my first In The Light FO and I won one of the prizes!

In my prize package I got a really cool wine themed project bag, a skein of hand dyed laceweight from Happy Hands Hand Dyed yarn, and an enamel pin and vinyl sticker from the Chevyrell’s Stuff podcast.

I have never used actual laceweight yarn before so I might need to find the right project for this special skein. But I have already put the pin on my knitting notions bag and the sticker is on my water bottle. So it just goes to show that sometimes knitting pays off in more ways than just the FO!

Happy Knitting!!

Podcast Addicted

Ok, I may be late to the party…but I’ve discovered the wonder of knitting podcasts. Why have I been missing these??? Seriously they make my work day better and commutes a breeze!

Right now I’m working my way through the Knitmore Girls from the beginning. They are hilarious and in the span of a couple of weeks I’ve chewed through 75 episodes. (Don’t tell the hubby lol). I’ve tried a few more but I’m not sold on them yet so I won’t mention then here. At least for now.

My burning question is do you do the podcast thing and if so who do you listen to?
