Episode 294

In this episode, I talk about projects I’ve been working on (and completing) this spring. There’s knitting, sewing, cooking, and a poem in celebration of #memademay.

Briar’s Easter gift was Sweet Bee and Flower by Susan B. Anderson, plus a beautifully illustrated book about pollinators.
Brise Cardian No. 2 (I knit the first version of this in 2018) in Elsbeth Lavold silky wool.
Candied Orange Almond Cake (with blood oranges) from Taproot Issue 49: REFRESH. The reveal of this cake is magical.
Camisole top to test some techniques for the Saltwater Slip by Friday Pattern Co. I used ice-dyed vintage tablecloth from TillieGirlStudio and worked to incorporate the hem of the tablecloth into the hemline of the garment.
One technique I wanted to try was lining the front bodice, and I’m pleased with the result.

POEM: “Featherweight” by Chase Twichell in May 16 2022 issue of The New Yorker.
