Podcast 12: Lace Race



Good morning, wonderful knitters!

I'm excited to say that I've cast on for the Myrtle Leaf Shawl! The lace cast on wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be...but that Jade Sapphire Lacey Lamb is sooo thin!




Here is the button for knitting lace in May (please link back to me)....which can include knitting the Radiance Lace Headband....so grab the pattern, yarn and size 4 needles and start knitting! The Radiance Lace Headband Contest ends May 31, so remember that as well ; )



Also, check the side bar and this post for the Sleepy Eyes Tipsy Sock pattern...download for free....would love to see the socks you knit!

Go to the Sleepy Eyes Etsy Shop and buy the very last skein of Alien Invasion sock yarn....100% superwash merino...beautiful twist and 440 yards of fingering weight dreaminess!

If you liked the music on this podcast, here are the talented artists to look up....

Love = Action with "Waves" and Beatrice Ericsson with "Starting All Over"

Great podcast! I really enjoyed it. I will have to swipe the button because I will be finsihing my Spring Things and probably starting more lace when it is done.

Another fantastic podcast. I'm in, baby! Elann won't be selling that laceweight till the 8th, so I guess I have to wait. I'm still on the fence about which pattern too...

Thanks for mentioning me in your podcast! It was so cool to hear my name!

I am so happy I found your podcast- it's fun, funny, informative a little nutty and so well organized and easy on the ears...love it!! I have been knitting a long time but in the past few years started a tiny knitting business of mostly knit and felted bags. I never here you mentioning felting... at least so far, however I am not all caught up on your episodes yet.
Thanks for your energy and time in creating your podcast for my listening delight! I must go now and read your blog, I am sure I will find ots of new and intereting places to go on he web to interest my knitting obsessed soul.
