Knitting Knirvana Podcast Episode 8: Instant Gratification!


Finished Objects:
My parent's Christmas blankets are DONE! Rav Project Page Link

Pattern is Bullseye by Brittany Tyler. I used over 3,000 yards of Superwash Cascade 220, Berroco Vintage, and Encore. I started planning it last Christmas and worked on it from April through Christmas Eve!

Pattern is Fish Hat [Dead or Alive?] by Thelma Egberts from Knitty, Winter 2008 with modifications by Eartheo to fit a toddler. I used Vanna's Choice yarn and buttons for the eyes.

Pattern is Calorimetry from Knitty, Winter 2006 using some leftover Manos and a button I had.

My list of goals for the 10 in 2010 group on Ravelry. I completed 7 out of 10. Not bad!

Will Start Soon:
Large Granny Square as an afghan for my son's bed in Vanna's Choice

You are so brave to podcast! Man, I thought podcasting had to do w/your iPod.
Fun to hear about what you've accomplished and have in store next! I loved the show and tell! That dead fish hat is freakin' awesome, yo! I love Madelinetosh and Dream in Color Classy also!

I think the Calorimetry looked cute on you! Loved seeing all of your projects. Way to be industrious in the brand new year!

I have really been enjoying your podcast. Just got through the last one. I loved the 4-parter about that blanket, and seeing her open it on youtube was great. You have such a great heart.

Do you have any plans to get on iTunes? It's easier for me to grab them that way, that way I don't miss any. But I have no real concept of the work involved for you. Just a thought.

Keep those needles (and hooks) goin. You make great stuff.

Your parents blankets are wonderful. I love the Madelinetosh colorway you chose. It reminds me of Black Watch.
