I have gotten a few questions via email about some of the projects I mentioned during episode 6 of The Peahen’s Ponderings podcast. I figured I would post everything here, so everyone could enjoy! (Also, it let me know that at least a few people listened to the WHOLE thing – thank you! You know who you are!)
First and foremost, I wanted to share a video demonstrating how a Russian knitting purl stitch is made.
While mentioning blockers to completing works in progress (WIPs), I mentioned a knitting project that only needed its ends sewn in. It’s a coffee cup cozy, if you were wondering!
I found it buried in the closet while inventorying my WIPs in preparation for recording the podcast. I think I started it eight years ago? I had meant it for a mother’s day gift. The podcast inspired me to finally finish it and give it to my mom… just a few years late!
Here is the sweater with the arms of uneven length. Note how my bent elbows cleverly hide the mistake!
If you wondered what it looks like when you match your spindle with your fiber, here is proof that it really is a thing!
And finally, here is a link to my Ravelry projects, if you would like to see what a TERRIBLE project page looks like. I definitely need to clean out everything I’ve given up on… and add some photos of my Angelique!
