episode3

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

Shownotes:
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 :)
Find me here on Instagram and Ravelry.

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.

I am working on the romantically named Learn to Knit a Mens Sweater pattern by Staci Perry in the yarn Karisma from Drops, in their dark brown color. The stitch  marker is from the etsy shop newagespinning.

I’m preparing to knit the Ulli dress I spoke of in episode 2. I’m using the recommeded yarn from magasin duett in a dark purple.

Other crafts:
I talked about the Bohus star / Bohusstjärna.

About my week:
I bought the knitted alpaca from the company Knätofs. We went to Smart Textiles and Textilhögskolan i Borås/Swedish School of Textiles.

A Swedish word:
Brioche – Patent
Brioche knitting – Patentstickning

Due to schoolwork I might not podcast next week, but there are more episodes coming! <3
