Episode 278

In this episode, I talk about my completed Derecho sweater, and share the details of several new projects, including Knitloops socks in self-striping yarn from Knit Spin Farm, the Craghill shawl in Distelfink Fiber Farm Raised Fingering, and my entry into the #lostwordsmal. I’ve completed all of the preliminary steps for another garment in negative reverse appliqué, this time with a beautiful fern motif.
