Savvy Girls Rule!

Back at the end of April or beginning of May, I had the great fortune of meeting Deborah from the Savvy Girls Podcast. It was a Saturday, we got to talking and hit it off right away. She invited me to her Grandmother’s home the very next day to interview lil' ole me. They are very interesting ladies and have an amazing podcast all about fibre and knitting among other fun things. Please give them a listen here is a link to Episode 25 (with an interview with yours truly).

I’ve finally got down to the last 50 or so rows on the shawl I’m making from the yarn I purchased from A Verb for Keeping Warm. Of course, since I tend to fly by the seat of my pants… I’ve run out of yarn. So, instead of trying to blend or frog-ing or tink-ing (which most people would do), I think I’m going to add my own hand dyed fuchsia mohair/wool blend. I’ll also add a skinny strip up one side maybe? Not sure yet… Ahhh, creative solutions that make it my own – this is why I love yarn arts.

My interest in filet crochet led me to FINALLY figure it out. I did a little tutorial and managed to make up this lopsided little blob of a heart. Yes, it’s a heart. I’m thinking of it as sort of like that first Valentine you made in school. It’s blobby and weird and you may have to tell your mom exactly what it is but, you’re proud of it anyway.
