Sharing the creations that have kept me together these past few weeks... Both in video and audio this time! And with a little tea swap that is sure to brighten the weeks to come.
Episode recorded on January 21, 2015.
You can watch the video here.
The video/audio gets slightly out of sync after a while. I tried for a long time to fix it, with no success. Next time will be better I promise!
TEA SWAP announcement!
Brilliantly imagined and organized by knittinluv on Ravelry. All the details have been posted in the Ravelry group.
1. A BIT OF SEWING
I am wearing Newlook 6615, which I made in 2005.
I mention the Clothkit Dress (and matching skirt for me) that I made in 2013, and the aprons that I made last year. I just cut out Simplicity 2946 out of a floral corduroy to make Birthday Dresses for my daughter and her doll. The pattern was sent to me by Helen.
Cardigan out of my handspun for SPAKAL: Metro by Connie Chang Chinchio. Woolful and KnitBritish are podcasts (and websites) that emphasise the reasons why we should be more mindful of our fibre choices.
I mention my daughter's Manteau de Lutin.

3. A BIT OF SPINNING
- Currently spinning a Juno Fibre Arts braid named Wishing Tree: 70% BFL- 30% Sparkle. I'm going to knit it into a Stretcher Quaker Boomerang by Susan Ashcroft, which was gifted to me by a VERY lovely listener.
I purchased rolags and batts from Sara's Texture Crafts, which are gorgeous - Malachite marl batts, Sea Foam Shantung batts, and Oslo rolags.
I forgot to mention that Sara very kindly added several tape measures (both in inches and centimetres) as a gift, knowing how much I enjoy sewing!
Music: Piano Sonata in E-flat Major, mvt. 3 by Joseph Haydn, played by Mario Ajero.
Picture used for the announcement is Summer Afternoon (Tea in the Garden), by Theo van Rysselberghe (1901).
