1. Thanks for visiting my blog. My cat Hobbbes too routinely ruins my well placed yarns and needles for photographs…But they are indeed the best company to knit with, no?

    • Well, except for when they demand lap time, batting at my needles and chewing on my yarn when I try to pick up my project 🙂

    • Very beautiful bowls. It looks like they can be used for vaiours uses. Appreciate you sharing this wonderful competition. Thanks for visiting, and a very blessed Happy New Year to you. Love ~ Ana

    • I knit because I find it ties me to sointhmeg tangible in the world. I work in graphic design, with files and data, with digital photographs bits of electronic information passed between one form of memory and another, but nothing I can really grasp.When I knit it is sointhmeg for my hands to enjoy. To see the hues of 3D objects affected by the light from the window and the shadows of people moving across them. When I knit I can feel the wool, which ties me to nature and ties me to the earth, and makes me feel grounded in this digital, high-tech age.

  2. Hello, fellow Knitting Addict!

    We are CandleOwl Knits, a college student and her English grandmother who have formed a small knitting business. My grandmother taught me to knit herself, after she noticed that my local after-school care program had taught me wrong! I knit properly now, and she has been lovingly criticizing my work ever since.

    In the past we have had buyers from the United States of America, France, and Australia, but we’re looking to become better known. I’ve been reading your blog and I can tell that you share our love for creativity and laughing off our own blunders. I, too, have started to knit a sock and run out of yarn before the end. Hey, fingerless mittens have come into style! Maybe the same will happen with toeless socks…

    CandleOwl is searching for constructive criticism and maybe a leg-up in the massive jungle of internet artisans! We would be honored and eternally grateful for your input.

    The CandleOwl blog can be found here: http://candleowlknits.wordpress.com/

    And we have also opened an Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CandleOwlKnits?ref=si_shop

    Thank you so much!

    Knit On!

    • Great podcast! I’m new to lniientsg to podcasts and have been hunting for goods one. I’ve listened to many but yours is by far and away the best I’ve come across. Love your music, too. Now I look forward to lniientsg to your previous podcasts while I knit. Thank you so much.And, FYI, I placed an order with Artist’s Palette not the Cloud yarn though and mentioned to them that I found them via your podcast.

      • Thanks! It’s only one color, I scanned it and the scan went a litlte off.The button band is garter stitch worked along with the fronts. I don’t make buttonholes either just work the buttons through the fabric and then stitch around the resulting opening for stability. It works for nearly every button except gigantic ones.You’re right about the dropped shoulder it is easier. I like a raglan too, especially when the sweater is made one piece in the round. No Seams!

    • Those photos oh my. Yummy Yarn! I seem to move trhuogh phases of knitting but really I knit pretty much everything. Variety is the spice of life right?! I’ve always admired Katie’s yarns and got to know them when she was calling herself Bungalow Buns. Still have some of that yarn too!

  3. This is looking rellay nice. I couldn’t tell in the photo if this is one color or two. If you don’t like ribbing, what do you do for a button band or do you just skip buttons?Shaped sleeve caps look nicer but it’s easier to make drop shoulder. I always end up debating with myself which I want more ease of making up or a nicer fit.

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog and liking one of my posts 🙂 . Made me check out yours, and I am so happy I found this. I am enjoying your adventures in the knitting world, you are a very creative blogger – I also like the fact that you are a dancer :). I’ll be checking your posts often.

  5. Hello, Cathy, thanks for visiting my blog. I always to check back to see what others are doing and I must say I utterly cracked up at your Arrrrrrgyle (I might not have enough Rs in there, but you know the one I mean) post. Oh, ha ha, please keep it coming. (And, do you know, I have a very old jumper knit in what I thought was just a latticework pattern. Now I see it could actually be an Argyle reference. Aha!)

  6. Mhh… what does it tell me, when you, announcing “Knitting Addicts Anonymous” like my post where I ask “Can knitting be an obsession”? 😉 Well, it definitively made me grin (can’t laugh to loud, I’m sharing the office). Hope to see you around again. I’ll definitively will check your blog.

  7. I love dancing too! Do knitting and dancing go together in some bizarre way?!
    I will be Freestyle jiving with friends and my son and daughter tomorrow night to celebrate my 60th birthday on Sunday! Yay!!! and Hurray!!!!

  8. Hi, just came across your blog after stumbling across #ballroomdancing on Twitter. Knitting and dancing? Interesting. I can see how the knitting is going. How is the dancing at the moment?

  10. Hi Caitlin,

    What’s the biggest knitting project you’ve ever undertaken? Have you ever tried knitting hats? Maybe even 10,000 of them?

    I was wondering if you’d be interested in reading and reviewing a book by a fellow knitter, Robyn Devine from SheMakesHats.com, entitled She Makes Hats.

    Moved by creative planning and life challenges, Robyn Devine found meaning in her life by . . . knitting hats?

    She Makes Hats is one woman’s story of finding meaning, purpose, and passion by way of an old-fashioned yet rediscovered craft. With a push from a friend, Robyn Devine, a thirty-something wife and mother, moved past her apprehension and began expressing herself through texture, color, and design, turning knitting into her hobby, her meditation, and a functional product that helps people all around the world.

    Now, in an effort to knit 10,000 hats for people all around the world, Robyn contributes to a number of programs, aiding sick children, traveling artists, and newborns in other countries. Knitting remains a steadfast companion and leaves her blessed with worldwide friends, support, and the encouragement to continue her mission: to bring comfort, warmth, and the “sweet spot” fit of a knit hat to everyone.

    Robyn lives in Omaha, Nebraska with her husband, toddler son, and their three cats. When she’s not knitting, she can be found reading and eating pizza. Usually at the same time. She shares her knitting at SheMakesHats.com

    She Makes Hats is being published by Asymmetrical Press, a publishing house in Missoula, Montana run by indie authors, for indie authors—publishing for the indie at heart.

    May I send you a copy of She Makes Hats to review? It’s available in EPUB, Kindle, and PDF. If you’d like, you can also run a free e-copy giveaway, whether or not you choose to review the book.

    Thank you for your time.
