Knitting... designing... then more knitting... more designing! I love coming up with new designs, exploring textures, colours and even new angles. I could have done this with pottery, but no, I hate being messy... so knitting it is! ;-)
I was invited to take part in an interview with popular YouTube Podcasters, Andrea and Andrew Doig from Fruity Knitting. When I received the email request, I actually had a "Who? Me?" moment. Even asking myself what had I done to deserve this, but after realising that it wasn't a hoax (since there was no promise of $3million), I was pretty excited about it!
I'm not all that clued up on video podcasts, but having watched a few of the past issues of Fruity Knitting, I am now a fan! The great thing about these podcasts, is that you can pull up a comfy chair, grab your knitting, a cup of tea and a cake of your choice and just enjoy 'slow TV'. It's quite enjoyable and very relaxing. You get a lot of knitting done! In fact, I learned a few useful knitting techniques during these episodes - educational too.
Check out Episode 11 - I am featured about 40 minutes into it, but I recommend watching the whole thing because it is so entertaining and professionally formatted.
Although it is officially Autumn here in the UK, it's difficult for us to give up on Summer, especially when the weather has been so warm lately. It has been known for us to see mild temperatures right up until mid-October! I wasn't ready to wear thick sweaters just yet, so I made this quick bolero/vest:
Made on the Addi Express using 1 skein of Fingering Weight yarn. All trims were hand knitted.
