I'm joining in Ginny's Yarn Along this week.
A few months ago, I began listening to a bunch of knitting podcasts and am now caught up with about a handful of my favorite ones. I was never a podcast listener before -- for me, listening has always been about music -- but now I'm hooked and wait excitedly for new episodes to be released. One podcast that I'm especially fond of is Knitting Brooklyn, hosted by the lovely Jessica.
Perhaps it's because she's a New Yorker like me or perhaps it's because she's super funny and smart, but from her first episode, I was a fan. So, you can just imagine how thrilled I was when she joined the Project: Stash KAL group and then talked about us in her last episode which focused a lot on knitting for good. I just want to thank Jessica so much for including the Miranda Hat in her segment and for those of you who haven't listened to Knitting Brooklyn yet, head on over to iTunes and spend some time with her. She's fun -- I promise!
Now to what I'm knitting: I started the Wonder Blanket late last week and have been really enjoying knitting new scraps into it row by row. It's been wonderful to see what colors I've knit with over the years and while the weights vary wildly, they still seem to come together nicely.
Sally of Wool Diaries asked if I would write up a pattern for this blanket which I did, very simply, here. I suppose this is more of a recipe than a proper pattern but for those of you who want to have some type of template for your very own Wonder Blanket, please feel free to refer to this pattern.
A few of us are knitting this blanket as part of the KAL group so come on over and join us. We'd love to see how your scraps are knitting up.
I finally finished Commencement and have to say that the ending did surprise me ... I just wish it didn't take me so darn long to get to the end! What's up next? Tune in next Wednesday and find out.
