Episode 179


New Pattern:  Concordia

My most recent pattern design is knit with Concordea yarn, created by Carole of Foster Sheep Farm and spun at Battenkill Fiber Mill. Concordea is a gorgeous, sport weight yarn in two natural colors. Soft and incredibly springy, it is spun from a 50/50 blend of Carole’s Romney fiber and Falkland fiber.

The Concordia pattern includes instructions for a luxurious cabled neckline and an easy-to-knit ribbed option.  There are directions for three sizes, and the split front makes this capelet comfortable and effortless to wear.

Visit Carole and shop her wares . . .

One thought on “Episode 179”

  1. With a power outage and an extended period of no internet, thanks to Irma, it’s been a challenge to keep up with podcasts! That said, I’m enjoying some peace and quiet while our youngest grandson naps, and I was able to listen to your entire episode as I knit a sleeve cuff!😊
    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Concordia and can’t wait for the pattern release. I’d love to purchase some cafe and au lait so that mine will look like yours! Can’t wait!
    I had to laugh when you spoke of your lentil soup adventure! My mother-in-law made the best lentil soup and she always topped it off with very thinly sliced hotdogs and a bit of sherry. YUMMM! Thanks for the memories.
    Your needle minders are adorable. Don’t know how you do all that you do! I would like to embroider the hem edges of some pillowcases. I would first purchase some very soft cotton and construct the cases, and then do the embroidery.
    Thanks for another great episode.
