Intro: Apologies for the technical issues in last week's episode.
We're nearly at 1000 members in the ravelry group!
What am I wearing?: I'm wearing my finished and blocked Pavement Sweater by Veera Välimäki out of Malabrigo Sock in the 'Piedras' colourway.
WIPs: I've worked on the first sleeve of the Second Grace sweater by Bristol Ivy out of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes.
I've put a few inches on my cuff down vanilla socks out of Stranded Dyeworks Paradise MCN in the 'Koi' colourway.
I have also started work on the Penguono by Stephen West. This has eaten ALL my knitting time. I'm obsessed. You can find the yarn I've used so far by clicking through to the project page.
KAL: I talk about the BritKnit Kal - A knitalong using yarn from the United Kingdom - England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. The KAL will start on April 1st, use the hashtag #britknitkal on instagram so I can see what you're working on!
