episode4

Hi and welcome to the fourth episode of my podcast about knitting, spinning and sloyd in general

Shownotes:
Find me here on Instagram and Ravelry.

About  my week:
These last weeks have mostly been about school, but over easter me, my boyfriend and my parents went up to our summer house in middle sweden. We went to Hallagården, where we also got to take a walk with alpacas.

What I’m wearing:
I’m not wearing anything handmade today.

Recently Finished:
I’ve worked on a lot of projects but nothing is completely finished.

What I’m Working on:
I have finished the knitting on the Learn to Knit a Mens Sweater pattern by Staci Perry in the yarn Karisma from Drops. I still have to sew one sleeve, block it and sew in the zipper.

I have cast on the Ulli dress in supersoft by magasin duett, here in the colour Purple Haze.

I misremembered the name! The bubble sweater is another pattern by pickles, and the one I’m working on is V for genser though it has alot of bubbles on it :)

I’m also knitting a tiny alpaca by Anna Hrachovec. It still needs legs and three more friends :)

Dream Project/Future Project:
I’m on my way out to pick up yarn for a Sólja by Anna Maltz, and I generated a pattern  from a band logo using stitch fiddle. My boyfriends bands facebookpage can be found here and here’s a link to their spotify :)

 

Stash enhancement:
Alpaca fluff from Titus and angora fluff in mint.

 

Other crafts:
I carved out a little bird which unfortunately cracked and I did some preparations for making alpacas. I also talked a bit about what you can think about when carving wood, but one very important thing I forgot to mention is that you always need to check what the law says about  choppingdown trees or taking wood in your country.
Please let me know what you think, subscribe and tell all your friends about the podcast! <3

Hello! This is the third episode of my podcast about knitting, spinning and sloyd in general

This week I won’t put so much text in the video, because it’s so time consuming for me, but please let me know if you need it! I understand if my pronounciations can be a bit hard to understand :)

What I’m wearing:
I’m wearing Baristakoftan/the barista cardigan from Älskade Kofta / My favourit cardigans to knit by Birgitta Forslund. My project page here. Find it in English on Amazon here. The yarn is Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk in Coral.

Recently Finished:
Except for the Barista Cardigan, which I finished in three (!) days, I also finished one sock, which of course needs a partner, and I knit the Henry’s Bunny by Sara Elizabeth Kellner, a freebie on ravelry.

episode1

Hello and welcome to my new podcast!

 

Shownotes:

First of all, please give me feedback! Would you like to hear the sometime academic and sometimes anecdotal perspective on crafts and the cultural heritage of Sweden?
I would also love some fun ideas for the names of the segments!
After watching the episode myself I notice I’m a bit fidgety but I’m sure that’s something that will get better if I continue with the podcast :)

Also please let me know if you want me to create a ravelry group! <3

 

What I’m wearing:
I’m wearing the Stonecutter pullover by Michele Wang and Brooklyn Tweed. The yarn is from Magasin Duett, her Mohair Tweed. Ravelry project page here.

Recently Finished:
I recently finished the Stonecutter Pullover and my second Exploration Station, but I’ll show that in a later episode.

What I’m Working on:
V for Sweater and Posh Blouse from Pickles in their recommended yarn, League from Brooklyn Tweed in Engleuld, and some socks, I’m sorry but I couldn’t find the picture we used as inspiration. I mentioned the Fish Lips Kiss Heel.

Dream Project/Future Project:
Hoodie Shawl Cardigan by Susanne Sommer, inspired by Mina of the knitting expat podcast. Maybe in my own handdyed yarn. What would you match it with?

Spinning:
I spun from fibers bought at Hallagården, and with a spindle from newagespinning, I bought the mini.

Dyeing:
Not much to say here!

Other crafts:
Crochet Bunny by Alicia Paulson. The yarn is  drops baby merino. Ravelry page here.
