Transcription

1

00:00:00,216 –> 00:00:02,216

I’m just gonna prepare you now

 

2

00:00:02,720 –> 00:00:07,440

for how sweaty my face is going to be by the end of the video

 

3

00:00:07,840 –> 00:00:16,080

[cheerful music with guitar and bells]

 

4

00:00:16,800 –> 00:00:21,520

Hello! And welcome to the Freakish Lemon video podcast thing

 

5

00:00:21,840 –> 00:00:26,480

I am the Freakish Lemon, I go by Adrian, and I use male pronouns.

 

6

00:00:26,762 –> 00:00:32,842

Remember that you can find all of the show notes for this episode over at FreakishLemon.com

 

7

00:00:32,842 –> 00:00:35,419

And you can follow me as “freakishlemon”

 

8

00:00:35,600 –> 00:00:38,800

on Twitter, tumblr, Instagram, Ravelry

 

9

00:00:38,800 –> 00:00:40,718

Pinterest, if you really want to

 

10

00:00:41,173 –> 00:00:43,253

Also, I have an Etsy shop over at

 

11

00:00:43,520 –> 00:00:45,760

freakishlemon.etsy.com

 

12

00:00:47,238 –> 00:00:49,318

Forgot my URL there for a second

 

13

00:00:49,318 –> 00:00:51,032

freakishlemon.etsy.com

 

14

00:00:51,032 –> 00:00:54,865

And I’ll try to remember to put all the links to this in the down bar

 

15

00:00:54,865 –> 00:00:58,965

Especially to the show notes over at my website because…

 

16

00:01:02,900 –> 00:01:04,800

I feel like I’ve forgotten to do that in the past

 

17

00:01:04,877 –> 00:01:06,637

I don’t know if that’s true

 

18

00:01:07,140 –> 00:01:12,100

So welcome to any new viewers of my little show thing

 

19

00:01:12,280 –> 00:01:15,040

and welcome back any returning viewers

 

20

00:01:15,460 –> 00:01:19,580

Two quick update things before I get into the show proper

 

21

00:01:19,880 –> 00:01:22,120

One is closed captioning

 

22

00:01:23,692 –> 00:01:26,572

That is a thing that we can do here on YouTube

 

23

00:01:26,700 –> 00:01:29,180

And I have gone back and I have added

 

24

00:01:29,880 –> 00:01:32,620

closed captioning to my first episode

 

25

00:01:32,740 –> 00:01:34,660

It takes me a long time to do it

 

26

00:01:35,160 –> 00:01:36,500

The way I’ve been doing it

 

27

00:01:36,500 –> 00:01:38,760

If anyone has any suggestions as to how to

 

28

00:01:38,760 –> 00:01:40,685

speed that process up, that would be great

 

29

00:01:40,900 –> 00:01:42,720

But as of right now

 

30

00:01:42,720 –> 00:01:45,096

the first episode will have closed captioning

 

31

00:01:45,096 –> 00:01:46,642

and I’m going to try and get

 

32

00:01:46,642 –> 00:01:49,257

this episode live with closed captioning

 

33

00:01:49,300 –> 00:01:52,800

I don’t know if this will happen as I post this video

 

34

00:01:52,840 –> 00:01:55,540

but it will definitely happen within

 

35

00:01:55,880 –> 00:01:57,080

the coming week

 

36

00:01:58,400 –> 00:01:59,720

fo this episode

 

37

00:01:59,720 –> 00:02:01,842

And I will slowly be rolling it out

 

38

00:02:03,880 –> 00:02:06,800

on the rest of my previous episodes

 

39

00:02:06,880 –> 00:02:07,540

I know –

 

40

00:02:08,940 –> 00:02:11,100

I’m sure if there’s anybody out there

 

41

00:02:11,620 –> 00:02:12,920

watching this with

 

42

00:02:13,160 –> 00:02:15,760

any hearing difficulty

 

43

00:02:16,464 –> 00:02:18,384

This show much be ridiculous

 

44

00:02:18,384 –> 00:02:20,617

because I cover my face with my projects

 

45

00:02:20,617 –> 00:02:22,784

when I show you things and I mumble

 

46

00:02:23,280 –> 00:02:24,676

There were parts of the first episode

 

47

00:02:24,816 –> 00:02:26,416

where I had to go back and

 

48

00:02:26,416 –> 00:02:29,982

rewatch things because I couldn’t understand what I was saying

 

49

00:02:31,200 –> 00:02:31,920

So, umm…

 

50

00:02:33,240 –> 00:02:37,360

any way I can make that easier for you folks

 

51

00:02:38,777 –> 00:02:40,217

I would like to do that

 

52

00:02:40,217 –> 00:02:44,486

and if you don’t know how to turn on closed captioning on YouTube videos

 

53

00:02:44,520 –> 00:02:45,640

there is a little

 

54

00:02:45,760 –> 00:02:50,060

closed caption symbol right around here

 

55

00:02:50,497 –> 00:02:51,377

at the bottom

 

56

00:02:51,980 –> 00:02:53,080

of the video

 

57

00:02:54,420 –> 00:02:56,040

at the time that I’m doing this

 

58

00:02:56,040 –> 00:02:58,188

YouTube likes to move things, so

 

59

00:02:58,860 –> 00:03:01,020

Hello future people if, uh…

 

60

00:03:01,300 –> 00:03:03,700

if it’s not there, then check around

 

61

00:03:03,700 –> 00:03:06,363

but there is a little closed captioning button somewhere

 

62

00:03:06,730 –> 00:03:08,090

and thing number two

 

63

00:03:08,120 –> 00:03:10,620

is there is a Ravelry group now

 

64

00:03:10,620 –> 00:03:13,040

for anybody interested in joining the group

 

65

00:03:13,040 –> 00:03:16,260

it is the Freakish Lemon Video Podcast group

 

66

00:03:18,444 –> 00:03:19,724

I know it’s lengthy

 

67

00:03:22,320 –> 00:03:26,000

my brain is a thing that decided that’s the best way to go

 

68

00:03:26,000 –> 00:03:27,520

even though it’s a really long title

 

69

00:03:27,520 –> 00:03:30,660

but I’m sure if you search Freakish Lemon you will find it

 

70

00:03:32,120 –> 00:03:33,900

Right now there are the

 

71

00:03:34,440 –> 00:03:35,740

episode threads

 

72

00:03:35,740 –> 00:03:37,573

There is an Introductions thread

 

73

00:03:37,573 –> 00:03:39,628

which a few people have already introduced themselves in

 

74

00:03:39,628 –> 00:03:41,781

and thank you so much for doing that

 

75

00:03:42,646 –> 00:03:43,926

that’s really nice

 

76

00:03:43,926 –> 00:03:46,352

that people did that of their own accord

 

77

00:03:47,140 –> 00:03:49,100

there is a

 

78

00:03:50,040 –> 00:03:51,640

Works in Progress and FOs thread

 

79

00:03:51,640 –> 00:03:53,423

so if you want to share anything you’re working on

 

80

00:03:53,580 –> 00:03:54,540

with the group

 

81

00:03:54,540 –> 00:03:56,170

you can go ahead and post that there

 

82

00:03:56,170 –> 00:03:59,826

and there is currently a suggestions and questions thread

 

83

00:03:59,826 –> 00:04:03,057

so if there’s anything you’d like to see on the show

 

84

00:04:03,160 –> 00:04:05,720

or maybe as a separate shorter video

 

85

00:04:07,240 –> 00:04:09,280

any questions you would like to ask me

 

86

00:04:12,206 –> 00:04:14,926

I’m perfectly willing to hear some ideas

 

87

00:04:14,926 –> 00:04:17,064

and bounce around some things that we can do

 

88

00:04:18,960 –> 00:04:22,220

things that came to my mind off the top of my head

 

89

00:04:22,220 –> 00:04:24,760

was maybe doing a stash tour

 

90

00:04:24,877 –> 00:04:27,517

taking you on a tour of my stash upstairs

 

91

00:04:28,860 –> 00:04:30,860

in a separate smaller video

 

92

00:04:31,340 –> 00:04:33,100

hopefully, smaller video

 

93

00:04:34,160 –> 00:04:34,660

or

 

94

00:04:39,077 –> 00:04:40,597

there was another idea

 

95

00:04:42,394 –> 00:04:43,034

it’s gone

 

96

00:04:48,258 –> 00:04:48,898

it’s gone

 

97

00:04:49,500 –> 00:04:51,160

it’s completely gone, but um…

 

98

00:04:53,100 –> 00:04:54,020

something like that

 

99

00:04:54,100 –> 00:04:57,040

or if you want to see how I spin

 

100

00:04:58,463 –> 00:05:00,543

either on a spindle or on a wheel

 

101

00:05:00,680 –> 00:05:02,780

or if you want to see how I knit

 

102

00:05:02,780 –> 00:05:06,028

I am a continental knitter if that’s something you’re interested in seeing

 

103

00:05:08,145 –> 00:05:10,865

that might be something worth exploring

 

104

00:05:10,865 –> 00:05:14,488

now it’s really gonna bug me that I can’t remember what the other idea was

 

105

00:05:15,506 –> 00:05:16,226

but anyway

 

106

00:05:19,120 –> 00:05:21,900

please use that thread if you have any

 

107

00:05:22,140 –> 00:05:25,480

questions about anything that I do or

 

108

00:05:25,676 –> 00:05:28,636

any suggestions for things you’d like to see

 

109

00:05:28,636 –> 00:05:30,174

or segments you’d like to see

 

110

00:05:30,174 –> 00:05:31,506

or anything like that

 

111

00:05:31,506 –> 00:05:33,720

that would be great if you could put them there

 

112

00:05:33,720 –> 00:05:35,500

and feel free to start your own threads

 

113

00:05:35,500 –> 00:05:38,149

if there’s something that you want to talk about with the group

 

114

00:05:38,149 –> 00:05:39,840

that’s not currently there

 

115

00:05:39,840 –> 00:05:41,166

feel free to start a thread

 

116

00:05:41,166 –> 00:05:43,291

if you can’t and I’ve screwed something up

 

117

00:05:43,720 –> 00:05:44,440

let me know

 

118

00:05:44,520 –> 00:05:48,180

PM me on Ravelry and I will make sure that can happen

 

119

00:05:48,425 –> 00:05:50,505

that you can make threads there

 

120

00:05:50,505 –> 00:05:52,241

I think that’s the default, but…

 

121

00:05:53,499 –> 00:05:55,179

I’m new at running a group

 

122

00:05:55,680 –> 00:05:57,640

not that I’m really running anything

 

123

00:05:57,640 –> 00:05:59,169

because right now there’s ten people

 

124

00:05:59,180 –> 00:06:00,780

thank you ten people

 

125

00:06:00,880 –> 00:06:02,500

for joing the group

 

126

00:06:03,180 –> 00:06:04,140

well, number one was me

 

127

00:06:04,140 –> 00:06:06,179

but thank you nine people for joining the group

 

128

00:06:06,179 –> 00:06:10,330

most of the people who joined are people that I invited off the top of my head

 

129

00:06:10,330 –> 00:06:13,291

but there are a couple of people who found it organically

 

130

00:06:13,300 –> 00:06:15,440

so thank you for joining

 

131

00:06:15,457 –> 00:06:16,977

so those are my updates

 

132

00:06:16,977 –> 00:06:18,318

it is really hot in here

 

133

00:06:18,318 –> 00:06:21,987

I’m going to try not to complain about how hot it is in here

 

134

00:06:22,120 –> 00:06:25,140

you will see it as I slowly turn redder

 

135

00:06:25,440 –> 00:06:26,800

and sweatier

 

136

00:06:27,395 –> 00:06:29,315

there’s no air conditioning

 

137

00:06:29,460 –> 00:06:31,060

in my house at the moment

 

138

00:06:31,073 –> 00:06:33,313

we have one air conditioning unit

 

139

00:06:33,313 –> 00:06:35,284

that has not been installed yet

 

140

00:06:35,284 –> 00:06:37,528

because it hasn’t been hot enough to require it

 

141

00:06:37,800 –> 00:06:38,300

yet

 

142

00:06:38,940 –> 00:06:41,440

on a consistent basis

 

143

00:06:42,793 –> 00:06:46,153

and the only fan I have on right now is my ceiling fan

 

144

00:06:46,293 –> 00:06:48,213

which I cannot turn up on high

 

145

00:06:48,340 –> 00:06:51,560

because it is weighted unevenly

 

146

00:06:51,640 –> 00:06:52,760

which will shake

 

147

00:06:52,760 –> 00:06:55,840

and sometimes the middle part with the lights in it spins

 

148

00:06:56,200 –> 00:06:57,860

which is worrisome

 

149

00:06:58,046 –> 00:07:00,606

so it is on the lowest setting right now

 

150

00:07:01,800 –> 00:07:03,960

I do have a box fan in here

 

151

00:07:03,986 –> 00:07:05,506

and snother fan in here

 

152

00:07:05,506 –> 00:07:07,647

so, you know, if you’re worried about me dying in here

 

153

00:07:07,647 –> 00:07:09,340

under normal circumstances

 

154

00:07:09,442 –> 00:07:10,562

it is not that bad

 

155

00:07:10,640 –> 00:07:13,200

it just sounds like a swarm of bees

 

156

00:07:13,460 –> 00:07:17,340

which is not condusive to filming a podcast episode

 

157

00:07:17,630 –> 00:07:19,630

also, if it looks funny in here

 

158

00:07:19,630 –> 00:07:22,191

I can’t tell on this little screen if it looks funny in here

 

159

00:07:22,191 –> 00:07:25,461

and I’m sorry I’m gesturing weirdly, but I keep seeing my hands in the screen

 

160

00:07:27,140 –> 00:07:28,720

but I am filming this at night

 

161

00:07:28,720 –> 00:07:31,491

all of my previous episodes were filmed during the day

 

162

00:07:32,884 –> 00:07:35,284

but it’s hot during the day right now

 

163

00:07:35,480 –> 00:07:38,520

because I’m in North America

 

164

00:07:39,620 –> 00:07:41,980

and it’s summer time

 

165

00:07:42,100 –> 00:07:43,840

and it’s gross and hot

 

166

00:07:43,840 –> 00:07:46,715

I mean, I know I’m in Connecticut, so it’s not the worst

 

167

00:07:47,020 –> 00:07:48,660

summer place ever

 

168

00:07:48,960 –> 00:07:50,500

but it’s not fun

 

169

00:07:50,500 –> 00:07:52,050

so I’m filming this at night

 

170

00:07:52,063 –> 00:07:53,823

when it’s slightly cooler

 

171

00:07:54,868 –> 00:07:55,668

than the day

 

172

00:07:55,791 –> 00:07:59,231

so I’m just being illuminated by my two fancy-fancy

 

173

00:07:59,231 –> 00:08:00,459

lights that I bought

 

174

00:08:02,020 –> 00:08:04,640

for video and photo stuff

 

175

00:08:06,531 –> 00:08:08,931

so if the color looks weird in any way

 

176

00:08:08,931 –> 00:08:12,207

I’m sure I’ll see it once I start editing the video

 

177

00:08:12,207 –> 00:08:15,249

and you’ll all see it because I’m not gonna re-film this

 

178

00:08:17,280 –> 00:08:19,600

that’ll be something that we can work with later

 

179

00:08:21,636 –> 00:08:25,656

but if things do look different, that is why the light looks different

 

180

00:08:25,656 –> 00:08:27,740

because there’s no natural daylight in here at all

 

181

00:08:27,740 –> 00:08:28,850

usually there’s some

 

182

00:08:31,380 –> 00:08:31,880

yeah

 

183

00:08:33,480 –> 00:08:34,040

it’s hot

 

184

00:08:37,420 –> 00:08:37,980

it’s hot

 

185

00:08:40,540 –> 00:08:42,140

I’m gonna move on from that point now

 

186

00:08:42,860 –> 00:08:44,340

and we’re gonna talk about

 

187

00:08:47,200 –> 00:08:47,700

I have

 

188

00:08:48,300 –> 00:08:50,960

two finished objects to show you today

 

189

00:08:51,004 –> 00:08:52,204

which is exciting

 

190

00:08:52,340 –> 00:08:54,060

the first thing I have

 

191

00:08:54,760 –> 00:08:56,720

reach over to grab it

 

192

00:08:56,920 –> 00:08:59,680

is I have my  – oh, I dropped a thing

 

193

00:09:04,300 –> 00:09:07,840

I have finished my Christmas socks

 

194

00:09:08,360 –> 00:09:09,500

these were the

 

195

00:09:11,160 –> 00:09:14,200

Red Heart – Heart and Sole with Aloe

 

196

00:09:14,460 –> 00:09:16,220

in the Christmas colorway

 

197

00:09:18,580 –> 00:09:20,320

on US 1s?

 

198

00:09:20,320 –> 00:09:21,400

Where’s my show notes-

 

199

00:09:21,400 –> 00:09:23,552

my show notes are not in front of me because I have

 

200

00:09:24,960 –> 00:09:26,000

set this up

 

201

00:09:26,310 –> 00:09:27,750

in kind of a stupid way

 

202

00:09:27,920 –> 00:09:28,420

again

 

203

00:09:28,420 –> 00:09:30,140

because I’m so good at this

 

204

00:09:32,304 –> 00:09:33,664

let me try something

 

205

00:09:34,061 –> 00:09:35,421

let me put that there

 

206

00:09:37,740 –> 00:09:39,220

that doesn’t really help me much

 

207

00:09:39,840 –> 00:09:40,960

but it helps me a little bit

 

208

00:09:41,500 –> 00:09:44,100

these were knit on size

 

209

00:09:44,180 –> 00:09:48,500

US 1 – 2.25 mm dpns

 

210

00:09:53,380 –> 00:09:55,000

trying to get it to – there we go

 

211

00:09:55,000 –> 00:09:57,676

using my fingers as a reference, so ignore them

 

212

00:09:57,992 –> 00:09:59,352

those are some of the

 

213

00:09:59,660 –> 00:10:00,820

colors in this

 

214

00:10:01,540 –> 00:10:02,440

sock yarn

 

215

00:10:03,300 –> 00:10:04,200

I used

 

216

00:10:04,980 –> 00:10:08,340

the Soldier’s Socks pattern by Jessica Day George

 

217

00:10:08,340 –> 00:10:10,426

that’s the pattern that I learned

 

218

00:10:10,860 –> 00:10:12,720

knit socks on

 

219

00:10:12,720 –> 00:10:14,461

it’s a pretty vanilla sock pattern

 

220

00:10:14,940 –> 00:10:17,800

but there was some explanation for

 

221

00:10:18,300 –> 00:10:21,500

some things that worked really well for when I was trying to learn socks

 

222

00:10:21,640 –> 00:10:23,240

so it’s kind of my go to

 

223

00:10:23,800 –> 00:10:27,140

I did this using the Eye of Partridge heel

 

224

00:10:27,240 –> 00:10:34,080

which doesn’t look any different than a slip stitch heel flap

 

225

00:10:35,125 –> 00:10:36,725

in this particular yarn

 

226

00:10:36,980 –> 00:10:41,760

I have seen it look very wonderful in varigated yarns, so I’m thinking

 

227

00:10:42,680 –> 00:10:45,040

not so great for

 

228

00:10:46,212 –> 00:10:47,092

stripey ones

 

229

00:10:47,681 –> 00:10:48,961

more the varigated

 

230

00:10:49,251 –> 00:10:53,651

and now I can put them away in a drawer and not wear them ’til October

 

231

00:10:53,651 –> 00:10:56,714

because I can’t wear hand knit socks in the summer

 

232

00:10:56,714 –> 00:10:59,292

because my skin tries to murder everyone

 

233

00:11:00,440 –> 00:11:01,880

everyone, not just me

 

234

00:11:01,880 –> 00:11:04,497

that’s how murderous my skin can get sometimes

 

235

00:11:04,497 –> 00:11:06,341

so these will go in a drawer for

 

236

00:11:07,042 –> 00:11:08,322

later on in the year

 

237

00:11:08,360 –> 00:11:10,640

and I will enjoy them immensely

 

238

00:11:10,675 –> 00:11:11,475

at that time

 

239

00:11:12,972 –> 00:11:17,132

The other thing I finished was my Sockhead hat out of scrap yarn

 

240

00:11:17,360 –> 00:11:21,200

that I entered into the Peggy May podcast May-along

 

241

00:11:23,860 –> 00:11:26,040

Here is the finished hat

 

242

00:11:26,794 –> 00:11:29,194

This is using three different yarns

 

243

00:11:29,280 –> 00:11:33,760

The black yarn that you can see these stripes

 

244

00:11:34,341 –> 00:11:35,381

in between here

 

245

00:11:35,640 –> 00:11:39,020

is Premier Yarns Serenity Sock Weight Black

 

246

00:11:39,819 –> 00:11:41,099

originally enough

 

247

00:11:41,600 –> 00:11:46,860

and I used two Patons Kroy sock yarns

 

248

00:11:46,980 –> 00:11:52,280

One is the Blue Stripe Ragg and the other is the Grey Brown Marl

 

249

00:11:53,960 –> 00:11:55,420

You can see that the

 

250

00:11:56,851 –> 00:11:59,491

the color changes between the two yarns

 

251

00:11:59,619 –> 00:12:01,459

is actually pretty similar

 

252

00:12:01,459 –> 00:12:03,385

like in this blue section especially

 

253

00:12:03,385 –> 00:12:05,159

let’s block my face so that it’ll focus

 

254

00:12:05,827 –> 00:12:06,787

Will it focus?

 

255

00:12:07,240 –> 00:12:07,800

Will it?

 

256

00:12:09,060 –> 00:12:10,600

It’s a mystery

 

257

00:12:12,916 –> 00:12:13,956

I’m tired, guys

 

258

00:12:13,956 –> 00:12:15,717

I’m gonna be loopy this episode

 

259

00:12:16,443 –> 00:12:17,963

But you can see that the

 

260

00:12:18,620 –> 00:12:21,160

Blue Stripe Ragg is pretty blue

 

261

00:12:21,318 –> 00:12:24,118

There we go – and the Grey Brown Marl is blue

 

262

00:12:24,118 –> 00:12:25,543

but just kind of a grey blue

 

263

00:12:25,880 –> 00:12:29,120

So it’s basically the same color changes

 

264

00:12:29,420 –> 00:12:31,380

except for a few things

 

265

00:12:31,940 –> 00:12:32,440

just

 

266

00:12:33,360 –> 00:12:36,140

one is shaded blue and one is shaded grey

 

267

00:12:36,140 –> 00:12:37,295

so it works out really well

 

268

00:12:38,174 –> 00:12:39,134

and this is the

 

269

00:12:40,240 –> 00:12:42,500

Sockhead hat pattern by

 

270

00:12:42,620 –> 00:12:43,760

Kelly McClure

 

271

00:12:46,620 –> 00:12:48,140

and I did this on

 

272

00:12:48,260 –> 00:12:53,420

US 1 – 2.25 mm circular 16″ clover bamboo needles

 

273

00:12:55,120 –> 00:12:58,920

I showed you my little 9″ circular needles

 

274

00:12:59,540 –> 00:13:00,900

for the US 1 size

 

275

00:13:01,127 –> 00:13:04,887

and I tried to finish the top of the hat with those needles

 

276

00:13:05,360 –> 00:13:08,400

I was hilariously deluded into thinking

 

277

00:13:08,400 –> 00:13:10,324

I could use those in any sort of

 

278

00:13:10,468 –> 00:13:12,308

regular knitting capacity

 

279

00:13:13,740 –> 00:13:15,280

remember the tip of it was like

 

280

00:13:16,360 –> 00:13:18,060

the length of my finger

 

281

00:13:18,960 –> 00:13:20,380

from the top joint

 

282

00:13:20,536 –> 00:13:22,536

my hands cramped immediately

 

283

00:13:22,949 –> 00:13:25,589

I knit four stitches on it and went, nope

 

284

00:13:25,680 –> 00:13:27,640

Nope, my hands can’t do it

 

285

00:13:27,640 –> 00:13:28,599

they’re too small

 

286

00:13:29,340 –> 00:13:33,420

but I did learn that they are useful for knitting off of

 

287

00:13:33,700 –> 00:13:35,700

like if I need to hold stitches

 

288

00:13:37,340 –> 00:13:37,840

it was

 

289

00:13:38,380 –> 00:13:40,280

much more comfortable to

 

290

00:13:40,280 –> 00:13:43,782

knit off of those tiny needles with a regular sized needle

 

291

00:13:45,940 –> 00:13:47,600

than it was to

 

292

00:13:48,700 –> 00:13:51,820

knit off of any other type of stitch holder, so

 

293

00:13:52,500 –> 00:13:54,700

I’ll keep them around for that purpose, but

 

294

00:13:56,120 –> 00:14:00,500

I don’t know what type of delusion was going through my head that I could knit with those

 

295

00:14:00,889 –> 00:14:04,649

there is a seam in the back where I switched all the colors

 

296

00:14:04,780 –> 00:14:06,900

Uhh, where is it…

 

297

00:14:08,640 –> 00:14:10,720

Obviously, not that big of a deal if I can’t find it

 

298

00:14:13,320 –> 00:14:15,920

There is a bit of a color jog there, but

 

299

00:14:17,176 –> 00:14:19,656

that doesn’t worry me very much at all

 

300

00:14:22,241 –> 00:14:22,741

hat

 

301

00:14:24,180 –> 00:14:26,260

I just kind of like scrunch it up until

 

302

00:14:26,500 –> 00:14:27,620

it fits on my head

 

303

00:14:28,485 –> 00:14:30,085

I mean it’s a good fit but

 

304

00:14:30,340 –> 00:14:31,960

it is a very long hat

 

305

00:14:33,035 –> 00:14:34,715

sometimes I’ll flip it up

 

306

00:14:34,880 –> 00:14:35,840

and scrunch it

 

307

00:14:35,840 –> 00:14:39,087

but other times I just scrunch the whole thing down ’til I like how it fits

 

308

00:14:40,900 –> 00:14:43,340

but that’s a pretty versatile hat pattern

 

309

00:14:44,382 –> 00:14:45,502

I liked making it

 

310

00:14:45,660 –> 00:14:47,020

It was pretty simple

 

311

00:14:47,020 –> 00:14:49,485

It was interesting enough with the color changes that I had

 

312

00:14:51,120 –> 00:14:52,280

that it kept my attention

 

313

00:14:52,314 –> 00:14:55,674

and it was fun and I used up a bunch of scrap sock yarn

 

314

00:14:56,340 –> 00:14:57,920

so success

 

315

00:14:59,700 –> 00:15:02,680

And of course I have some works in progress

 

316

00:15:02,680 –> 00:15:05,796

The first thing I started after my Christmas socks was

 

317

00:15:05,960 –> 00:15:07,980

another pair of basic socks

 

318

00:15:09,640 –> 00:15:10,740

plain vanilla socks

 

319

00:15:10,800 –> 00:15:14,060

I decided to cast on 64 stitches this go around

 

320

00:15:14,520 –> 00:15:17,560

I normally cast on 56

 

321

00:15:18,680 –> 00:15:19,320

per the

 

322

00:15:21,940 –> 00:15:24,740

the sizing on the Soldier’s Socks pattern

 

323

00:15:25,760 –> 00:15:28,860

So I figured I’d do a pair at 64 stitches and see how they fit

 

324

00:15:30,020 –> 00:15:30,740

if they’re

 

325

00:15:30,740 –> 00:15:32,688

too big for me to wear comfortably

 

326

00:15:32,880 –> 00:15:34,540

they will be gift socks

 

327

00:15:34,900 –> 00:15:36,520

but if not, then

 

328

00:15:39,800 –> 00:15:42,360

then I can move between the two

 

329

00:15:42,735 –> 00:15:44,575

two sizes without any issue

 

330

00:15:48,020 –> 00:15:50,240

and this yarn will look familiar to you

 

331

00:15:50,620 –> 00:15:53,420

it was on my sock loom

 

332

00:15:53,780 –> 00:15:54,280

but

 

333

00:15:55,480 –> 00:15:59,360

I went to go put another row in on that and hated it

 

334

00:15:59,720 –> 00:16:00,600

immediately

 

335

00:16:00,889 –> 00:16:02,089

like, viscerally

 

336

00:16:02,420 –> 00:16:03,860

so I just ripped it out

 

337

00:16:03,960 –> 00:16:05,960

and cast on a couple of

 

338

00:16:06,000 –> 00:16:06,960

vanilla socks

 

339

00:16:07,251 –> 00:16:12,211

I decided to take a page out of Dani from the Little Bobbins Knits podcast’s

 

340

00:16:14,020 –> 00:16:15,460

book there, and

 

341

00:16:16,700 –> 00:16:18,060

knit my socks

 

342

00:16:18,620 –> 00:16:19,400

tandemly

 

343

00:16:20,742 –> 00:16:22,982

so here’s one that’s just the cuff

 

344

00:16:23,540 –> 00:16:24,600

it’s a 2″ cuff

 

345

00:16:27,830 –> 00:16:30,550

Oh, now I wish I’d filmed this in daylight

 

346

00:16:30,550 –> 00:16:33,028

because then you could see the cool thing about these stitch markers that I have

 

347

00:16:34,900 –> 00:16:37,660

and then here’s one that I’m a little bit further on

 

348

00:16:37,940 –> 00:16:39,380

I’ve gotten to the leg

 

349

00:16:39,868 –> 00:16:42,428

not very far, but you know, basic socks

 

350

00:16:42,780 –> 00:16:44,400

and this is the

 

351

00:16:45,760 –> 00:16:48,560

Loops and Threads Luxury Sock

 

352

00:16:50,140 –> 00:16:51,760

60 % merino

 

353

00:16:52,240 –> 00:16:53,760

30% nylon

 

354

00:16:54,320 –> 00:16:56,060

in the Canyon colorway

 

355

00:16:56,720 –> 00:17:00,880

on US 1 – 2.25 mm dpns

 

356

00:17:04,000 –> 00:17:08,160

You’ll notice very soon that I have a lot of US 1

 

357

00:17:08,580 –> 00:17:10,460

2.25 mm dpns

 

358

00:17:10,460 –> 00:17:13,000

I don’t know why I have so many sets of these

 

359

00:17:13,658 –> 00:17:15,578

but I think I have four or five

 

360

00:17:15,640 –> 00:17:16,520

sets of these

 

361

00:17:18,440 –> 00:17:19,000

which is

 

362

00:17:21,860 –> 00:17:25,360

I’m simultaneously unsurprised and thrilled

 

363

00:17:26,538 –> 00:17:27,578

it’s very weird

 

364

00:17:27,616 –> 00:17:29,136

but I’m using these two

 

365

00:17:29,433 –> 00:17:31,193

stitch markers that I made

 

366

00:17:36,480 –> 00:17:39,460

if you go back in my Instagram you can find

 

367

00:17:39,460 –> 00:17:42,320

my story about these stitch markers but these are just

 

368

00:17:42,760 –> 00:17:45,580

simple plastic beads that I got in my

 

369

00:17:48,600 –> 00:17:51,240

sophomore chemitry class

 

370

00:17:53,640 –> 00:17:55,720

you can see on the camera here they look

 

371

00:17:56,860 –> 00:17:57,360

white

 

372

00:17:58,540 –> 00:17:59,960

in the sunlight

 

373

00:18:00,760 –> 00:18:03,540

and it’s interesting that it’s not happening in these lights

 

374

00:18:03,820 –> 00:18:06,860

so it’s something to do with the natural sunlight

 

375

00:18:07,060 –> 00:18:08,740

they will change colors

 

376

00:18:08,920 –> 00:18:12,760

they will turn pink, blue, purple, yellow

 

377

00:18:13,340 –> 00:18:13,840

red

 

378

00:18:17,460 –> 00:18:18,740

yeah, it was part of

 

379

00:18:18,740 –> 00:18:21,215

it wasn’t even part of anything, he just handed out these little

 

380

00:18:21,520 –> 00:18:22,780

packets of beads

 

381

00:18:23,520 –> 00:18:26,460

and had us hold them out the window to have them change color

 

382

00:18:26,460 –> 00:18:27,548

and he told us we could keep them

 

383

00:18:27,840 –> 00:18:29,760

I found them fairly recently

 

384

00:18:30,400 –> 00:18:31,440

I think about a year ago

 

385

00:18:31,960 –> 00:18:35,400

put them on some jump rings and I made stitch markers out of them

 

386

00:18:35,860 –> 00:18:36,920

so that’s really cool

 

387

00:18:39,300 –> 00:18:42,060

these are the socks that go into my bag

 

388

00:18:43,640 –> 00:18:44,200

for work

 

389

00:18:44,781 –> 00:18:46,061

in case I have to run

 

390

00:18:46,540 –> 00:18:48,460

that report when my coworker is out

 

391

00:18:49,800 –> 00:18:52,700

if you’re on Instagram, you see those posts too

 

392

00:18:52,700 –> 00:18:57,094

I celebrate the fact that my coworker is out and I have to run a report that takes

 

393

00:18:57,694 –> 00:19:01,134

all the processing power of my stupid little laptop

 

394

00:19:01,920 –> 00:19:04,860

for about 25 minutes to a half-hour

 

395

00:19:05,624 –> 00:19:09,704

and my boss doesn’t say anything when she sees me knitting, so

 

396

00:19:09,840 –> 00:19:11,440

I keep on knitting

 

397

00:19:14,469 –> 00:19:17,109

so that’s a simple pair of vanilla socks

 

398

00:19:17,480 –> 00:19:20,220

so my next work in progress is the

 

399

00:19:20,360 –> 00:19:23,480

continuation of my cozy memories blanket

 

400

00:19:23,554 –> 00:19:26,434

these are in no particular order, by the way

 

401

00:19:26,763 –> 00:19:29,563

it’s just however I wrote out my show notes

 

402

00:19:29,896 –> 00:19:32,296

so this was the bag I was keeping it in

 

403

00:19:32,600 –> 00:19:37,200

I have enough minis now that this is just a bag of minis

 

404

00:19:38,300 –> 00:19:39,460

I’ve moved

 

405

00:19:40,000 –> 00:19:42,480

the collection of things to

 

406

00:19:45,260 –> 00:19:49,220

to an HP ecosolutions bag

 

407

00:19:49,220 –> 00:19:51,274

that I got with a printer that never worked

 

408

00:19:51,274 –> 00:19:54,095

so I kept all the bags and returned all the printers

 

409

00:19:56,220 –> 00:19:59,440

and I’ve put a few more squares on here

 

410

00:19:59,540 –> 00:20:01,420

I’ve got one in progress

 

411

00:20:01,420 –> 00:20:05,420

I was trying to finish some before filming

 

412

00:20:05,625 –> 00:20:07,465

but I didn’t finish this one

 

413

00:20:13,520 –> 00:20:14,400

I’ve got ends

 

414

00:20:15,040 –> 00:20:15,680

in the way

 

415

00:20:17,960 –> 00:20:19,320

so here was are so far

 

416

00:20:19,460 –> 00:20:20,740

not that many more

 

417

00:20:25,937 –> 00:20:28,017

about five and a little bit more

 

418

00:20:29,406 –> 00:20:31,326

because I showed this row off

 

419

00:20:31,402 –> 00:20:32,682

in the last episode

 

420

00:20:35,024 –> 00:20:36,304

so where’s my paper

 

421

00:20:39,800 –> 00:20:46,720

this is some Bluemoon Fiberarts Socks that Rock Lightweight “Everyday Grey”

 

422

00:20:47,300 –> 00:20:47,800

from

 

423

00:20:48,958 –> 00:20:51,278

Kristen from the Yarngasm Podcast

 

424

00:20:51,278 –> 00:20:53,630

most of the ones I do are from Kristen

 

425

00:20:54,180 –> 00:20:56,660

I’m trying to do all my scrap

 

426

00:20:57,040 –> 00:20:58,420

yarn swap

 

427

00:20:59,336 –> 00:21:02,536

clusters together so I remember who sent me what

 

428

00:21:03,120 –> 00:21:05,880

this one is also from Kristen

 

429

00:21:06,300 –> 00:21:08,660

and it is the

 

430

00:21:09,380 –> 00:21:14,640

this might be the Regia 6-ply sock Lakeside

 

431

00:21:15,360 –> 00:21:15,860

maybe

 

432

00:21:16,360 –> 00:21:17,240

I’m not sure

 

433

00:21:17,760 –> 00:21:19,300

this one is

 

434

00:21:23,620 –> 00:21:26,080

Lorna’s Laces Zombie BBQ

 

435

00:21:29,260 –> 00:21:31,440

this one is mine, it’s the

 

436

00:21:32,320 –> 00:21:34,400

the Patons Kroy Blue Strip Ragg

 

437

00:21:34,400 –> 00:21:36,835

I had a little bit left over from that hat

 

438

00:21:42,540 –> 00:21:43,740

this is

 

439

00:21:43,820 –> 00:21:46,500

Gynx Yarns Fat Tuesday

 

440

00:21:46,500 –> 00:21:48,746

it’s got some gold sparkle in there

 

441

00:21:53,360 –> 00:21:55,320

then I’ve started one in

 

442

00:21:57,048 –> 00:22:00,088

a yarn I got from Diane of the Peggy May podcast

 

443

00:22:01,040 –> 00:22:03,980

which is like this beach sand

 

444

00:22:04,880 –> 00:22:05,760

type color

 

445

00:22:07,200 –> 00:22:09,520

like sandy yellow and blue

 

446

00:22:10,460 –> 00:22:12,960

set of sort of light colors

 

447

00:22:15,319 –> 00:22:17,719

she didn’t send labels with hers, so

 

448

00:22:17,719 –> 00:22:20,488

and that’s not a big deal, I just don’t know what they’re called

 

449

00:22:20,827 –> 00:22:22,667

I’ve started in on her group

 

450

00:22:25,160 –> 00:22:27,640

so not terribly many squares, but

 

451

00:22:29,768 –> 00:22:30,728

it’s progress

 

452

00:22:31,120 –> 00:22:32,440

blankets are slow

 

453

00:22:32,662 –> 00:22:34,582

I’ve accepted this in my life

 

454

00:22:34,582 –> 00:22:36,842

since I have so many of them right now

 

455

00:22:36,842 –> 00:22:40,100

I also went digging into my stash and I found

 

456

00:22:40,860 –> 00:22:41,840

this yarn

 

457

00:22:41,960 –> 00:22:45,400

that I had purchased at my local yarn shop

 

458

00:22:45,400 –> 00:22:48,190

a few years ago that I had completely forgotten about

 

459

00:22:48,190 –> 00:22:50,113

I always meant to go back and get more and

 

460

00:22:50,113 –> 00:22:52,750

now I’m not even sure if they carry it, so I’m just

 

461

00:22:54,100 –> 00:22:55,780

using the one skein

 

462

00:22:57,660 –> 00:23:00,040

and where’s the tag

 

463

00:23:00,320 –> 00:23:04,300

it’s in my Star Wars comic book

 

464

00:23:04,740 –> 00:23:07,040

sock bag from Tangerine Designs

 

465

00:23:07,209 –> 00:23:08,649

there’s a bug on my leg

 

466

00:23:09,980 –> 00:23:11,260

there are bugs in my house

 

467

00:23:13,300 –> 00:23:14,680

it’s an old house

 

468

00:23:14,965 –> 00:23:16,885

the windows are not air tight

 

469

00:23:17,140 –> 00:23:18,020

bugs get in

 

470

00:23:18,500 –> 00:23:20,980

so if you see me doing anything particularly weird

 

471

00:23:21,820 –> 00:23:24,160

it’s probably because the bugs are involved

 

472

00:23:25,231 –> 00:23:26,271

I’m just saying

 

473

00:23:29,566 –> 00:23:33,646

and you can hear that I have an Altoids tin with my notions in it

 

474

00:23:33,646 –> 00:23:34,811

in this bag right now

 

475

00:23:36,500 –> 00:23:40,140

You’ll have noticed all the project bags that I’ve bought are from Tangerine Designs

 

476

00:23:40,140 –> 00:23:43,163

she’s the first person that I’ve ever got a project bag from

 

477

00:23:43,163 –> 00:23:46,122

as part of the steampunk club a couple of years ago so

 

478

00:23:47,043 –> 00:23:48,803

I’ve been a loyal customer

 

479

00:23:48,860 –> 00:23:52,280

this is Plymouth Yarn Company

 

480

00:23:52,800 –> 00:23:53,640

Revel

 

481

00:23:54,900 –> 00:23:59,400

which is 85% baby alpaca, 15% merino wool

 

482

00:23:59,840 –> 00:24:02,860

let me give you something to look at while I’m reading off the tag

 

483

00:24:03,320 –> 00:24:04,220

here’s the

 

484

00:24:05,180 –> 00:24:07,340

little skein ball

 

485

00:24:11,140 –> 00:24:12,540

there’s some fun

 

486

00:24:13,520 –> 00:24:14,580

color changes

 

487

00:24:14,916 –> 00:24:16,036

in this gradient

 

488

00:24:16,520 –> 00:24:18,580

and it started off

 

489

00:24:20,060 –> 00:24:22,400

as, what was it called

 

490

00:24:24,340 –> 00:24:27,260

the Revel Modular Kerchief by

 

491

00:24:27,960 –> 00:24:29,060

Vanessa Ewing

 

492

00:24:29,060 –> 00:24:33,040

if you look at the pattern on Ravelry, you can see that the colors get broken up

 

493

00:24:33,240 –> 00:24:34,120

because it’s

 

494

00:24:35,420 –> 00:24:38,120

done in pieces that connect

 

495

00:24:38,120 –> 00:24:39,717

and I decided that I didn’t want to do that

 

496

00:24:39,860 –> 00:24:43,700

so I’m continuing with just the basic triangle shawl

 

497

00:24:43,920 –> 00:24:46,040

it’s a garter stitch shawl

 

498

00:24:49,220 –> 00:24:51,360

It’s really hard to show shawls, I’m learning this

 

499

00:24:52,660 –> 00:24:55,480

here’s the color progression so far

 

500

00:24:58,760 –> 00:25:00,320

which is really interesting

 

501

00:25:00,320 –> 00:25:04,841

and I’ll be interested to see how this blocks out because the only shawls I’ve done

 

502

00:25:06,120 –> 00:25:07,320

were stockinette

 

503

00:25:07,960 –> 00:25:10,545

shawls in the body of it and this is garter

 

504

00:25:13,420 –> 00:25:15,040

I have a feeling it’ll

 

505

00:25:15,246 –> 00:25:16,766

stretch out quite a bit

 

506

00:25:18,420 –> 00:25:19,720

I’m using the

 

507

00:25:20,386 –> 00:25:23,026

stitch markers I got from EllieKnitter

 

508

00:25:26,360 –> 00:25:28,820

are you gonna focus?

 

509

00:25:37,700 –> 00:25:38,200

nope

 

510

00:25:38,728 –> 00:25:41,768

but they’re basically rings with little blue

 

511

00:25:41,783 –> 00:25:42,663

beads on them

 

512

00:25:42,663 –> 00:25:43,859

I’ve got a white one

 

513

00:25:44,478 –> 00:25:47,118

or like a frosted white one in the middle

 

514

00:25:54,100 –> 00:25:55,780

shove it right in the lens

 

515

00:25:55,780 –> 00:25:58,260

will it focus if I shove it in the lens?

 

516

00:25:58,260 –> 00:25:59,160

apparently yes

 

517

00:25:59,160 –> 00:26:01,880

that’s more focus than what it was before

 

518

00:26:03,220 –> 00:26:04,580

and this is on

 

519

00:26:04,580 –> 00:26:06,737

sorry, I’m using my Kindle for my notes again

 

520

00:26:07,060 –> 00:26:09,520

oh, are we in focus now?

 

521

00:26:11,640 –> 00:26:13,780

let’s pull that back

 

522

00:26:13,878 –> 00:26:15,558

are we in focus back here?

 

523

00:26:15,558 –> 00:26:17,717

I can’t tell on my tiny little screen

 

524

00:26:23,320 –> 00:26:27,160

I’m using US 5 – 3.75 mm

 

525

00:26:27,595 –> 00:26:28,955

aluminum circulars

 

526

00:26:29,560 –> 00:26:30,600

I’m not in focus

 

527

00:26:49,380 –> 00:26:50,820

now I am in focus

 

528

00:26:51,462 –> 00:26:52,502

that’s my trick

 

529

00:26:52,749 –> 00:26:56,909

I put something up really close and I pull it back and it follows

 

530

00:26:56,980 –> 00:26:57,700

sometimes

 

531

00:26:58,550 –> 00:27:00,310

so that’s what I have so far

 

532

00:27:00,310 –> 00:27:01,500

see it upside down

 

533

00:27:01,653 –> 00:27:04,773

so I’m starting to go into the blue progression

 

534

00:27:04,773 –> 00:27:07,315

I don’t know if I’m going to do anything special

 

535

00:27:07,435 –> 00:27:08,475

with the edging

 

536

00:27:08,740 –> 00:27:10,680

I might just do a row of

 

537

00:27:11,040 –> 00:27:12,020

eyelets

 

538

00:27:12,098 –> 00:27:13,858

or a couple rows of eyelets

 

539

00:27:15,520 –> 00:27:17,260

maybe do a picot edge

 

540

00:27:17,351 –> 00:27:18,631

to see how that goes

 

541

00:27:19,060 –> 00:27:20,100

I’m just kind of

 

542

00:27:21,400 –> 00:27:22,760

making it up as I go

 

543

00:27:23,443 –> 00:27:26,483

just to see where the yarn takes me in that case

 

544

00:27:26,580 –> 00:27:29,300

I also cast on another pair of socks

 

545

00:27:31,840 –> 00:27:36,340

I cast on the Flying North by Maria Montzka

 

546

00:27:37,100 –> 00:27:37,600

socks

 

547

00:27:38,540 –> 00:27:41,760

Maria from the Stitched in Sweden podcast

 

548

00:27:42,040 –> 00:27:44,400

I started these as part of the

 

549

00:27:44,560 –> 00:27:46,200

Opposite knit-along

 

550

00:27:46,440 –> 00:27:48,960

for the YarnderWoman podcast

 

551

00:27:49,269 –> 00:27:51,829

and I entered them somewhere else, too

 

552

00:27:54,260 –> 00:27:54,760

I think

 

553

00:27:58,360 –> 00:28:03,040

the Yarnaceuticals podcast is having a sock knit-along

 

554

00:28:04,020 –> 00:28:05,320

am I remembering that right?

 

555

00:28:05,440 –> 00:28:06,480

I don’t know

 

556

00:28:08,160 –> 00:28:09,200

[TARDIS noise]

 

557

00:28:09,480 –> 00:28:10,180

TARDIS

 

558

00:28:11,960 –> 00:28:14,280

Hang on, let me go shut the TARDIS up

 

559

00:28:14,979 –> 00:28:16,979

that’s my 10:00 at night alarm

 

560

00:28:16,979 –> 00:28:19,170

saying you should probably be sleeping

 

561

00:28:22,587 –> 00:28:24,827

so anyway, the Flying North socks

 

562

00:28:24,910 –> 00:28:26,510

here’s what I have so far

 

563

00:28:26,740 –> 00:28:30,360

I chose them for the Opposite knit-along

 

564

00:28:30,360 –> 00:28:31,676

the Opposite-along

 

565

00:28:31,676 –> 00:28:32,802

whatever it’s called

 

566

00:28:33,920 –> 00:28:35,640

I just don’t remeber off the top of my head

 

567

00:28:37,540 –> 00:28:38,960

because they are toe up socks

 

568

00:28:39,120 –> 00:28:41,280

I usually knit my socks cuff down

 

569

00:28:45,240 –> 00:28:48,800

And I’m using some Sensations Truly

 

570

00:28:50,220 –> 00:28:50,720

yarn

 

571

00:28:50,720 –> 00:28:52,240

it’s 55% wool

 

572

00:28:52,360 –> 00:28:53,640

30% nylon and

 

573

00:28:53,640 –> 00:28:56,520

15% rayon from bamboo

 

574

00:28:56,520 –> 00:29:02,700

this is the Joann Fabric and Craft house yarn

 

575

00:29:04,880 –> 00:29:08,060

which seems to cycle out everytime I go there

 

576

00:29:08,060 –> 00:29:09,020

I had some left

 

577

00:29:09,140 –> 00:29:11,900

I decided to do some Flying North socks

 

578

00:29:12,200 –> 00:29:14,680

and I’m really liking it so far

 

579

00:29:14,740 –> 00:29:17,220

I did the Turkish cast on for the toe

 

580

00:29:18,600 –> 00:29:22,640

using my super long US 1 – 2.25 mm

 

581

00:29:22,980 –> 00:29:24,580

circular bamboos that I

 

582

00:29:24,880 –> 00:29:26,720

bought for two at a time sock knitting

 

583

00:29:27,847 –> 00:29:29,447

because I don’t have any

 

584

00:29:30,380 –> 00:29:33,160

mid-range circular needles

 

585

00:29:33,560 –> 00:29:35,060

in US 1

 

586

00:29:35,171 –> 00:29:36,931

that would only be helpful

 

587

00:29:36,931 –> 00:29:39,835

but that was an interesting method to cast on

 

588

00:29:41,460 –> 00:29:46,060

I’m going to do the fish lips kiss heel on these, I think

 

589

00:29:48,600 –> 00:29:50,780

pretty sure that’s my plan at this point

 

590

00:29:56,060 –> 00:29:57,900

was there anything else I needed to say about it?

 

591

00:29:58,010 –> 00:29:59,130

I don’t remember

 

592

00:30:00,700 –> 00:30:01,420

not really

 

593

00:30:02,880 –> 00:30:04,240

I mean, it’s not much

 

594

00:30:05,098 –> 00:30:06,938

a toe and a little bit of foot

 

595

00:30:07,607 –> 00:30:10,887

I’m on the second pattern repeat you can see there

 

596

00:30:10,979 –> 00:30:12,499

the little point there

 

597

00:30:15,800 –> 00:30:17,760

I’ll be excited to see how these turn out

 

598

00:30:18,600 –> 00:30:21,020

I have knit to up socks before

 

599

00:30:22,969 –> 00:30:24,569

two different patterns

 

600

00:30:25,100 –> 00:30:26,940

one pair were just

 

601

00:30:28,300 –> 00:30:29,540

did not work out

 

602

00:30:29,580 –> 00:30:30,940

and then they felted

 

603

00:30:30,940 –> 00:30:32,896

so I ended up getting rid of those

 

604

00:30:32,940 –> 00:30:34,400

but I do have

 

605

00:30:35,380 –> 00:30:36,960

a pair of socks that I knit toe up

 

606

00:30:37,060 –> 00:30:37,860

but I didn’t

 

607

00:30:38,120 –> 00:30:41,427

gauge where the heel needed to be very well, so they’re

 

608

00:30:41,460 –> 00:30:41,960

long

 

609

00:30:42,780 –> 00:30:46,220

which isn’t a big deal, they fit the width of my foot fine

 

610

00:30:46,540 –> 00:30:48,180

I just scrunch them up

 

611

00:30:51,900 –> 00:30:53,740

but I’d like to get better at

 

612

00:30:55,620 –> 00:30:57,620

doing toe up socks

 

613

00:30:57,620 –> 00:30:59,836

because I think that’s a good skill to have

 

614

00:30:59,903 –> 00:31:02,063

to do either direction so you can

 

615

00:31:02,760 –> 00:31:05,020

have your pick of sock patterns, basically

 

616

00:31:07,055 –> 00:31:08,735

that’s why I’m doing that

 

617

00:31:09,380 –> 00:31:10,500

and the other thing I’m working on

 

618

00:31:10,500 –> 00:31:11,680

this is no big deal

 

619

00:31:11,680 –> 00:31:13,174

I started them yesterday

 

620

00:31:13,245 –> 00:31:14,685

a couple of coworkers

 

621

00:31:14,685 –> 00:31:16,475

commissioned me to make some more

 

622

00:31:17,400 –> 00:31:18,640

keycard holders

 

623

00:31:18,962 –> 00:31:22,002

the keycards are about the size of a debit card

 

624

00:31:24,380 –> 00:31:26,900

and I had made up a cable knit pattern

 

625

00:31:27,120 –> 00:31:29,020

but I recently bought some

 

626

00:31:29,240 –> 00:31:32,660

of the little Lion Brand BonBons

 

627

00:31:33,220 –> 00:31:36,520

in acrylic so I had bright colors because

 

628

00:31:37,660 –> 00:31:40,160

a lot of folks at work want them in bright colors

 

629

00:31:41,048 –> 00:31:42,168

so I’m just doing

 

630

00:31:45,775 –> 00:31:47,535

they’re just stockinette

 

631

00:31:48,000 –> 00:31:48,500

stripe

 

632

00:31:52,740 –> 00:31:53,600

panels

 

633

00:31:53,600 –> 00:31:55,747

they’re basically like swatches

 

634

00:31:56,040 –> 00:31:56,840

there’s one

 

635

00:31:58,882 –> 00:32:00,322

there’s the other one

 

636

00:32:03,062 –> 00:32:04,582

and then usually I just

 

637

00:32:04,582 –> 00:32:06,180

whip stitch them together

 

638

00:32:06,340 –> 00:32:11,620

I’ll fold them around a gift card or a library card or something

 

639

00:32:13,680 –> 00:32:17,440

it works better if I don’t have all these ends in the way

 

640

00:32:18,700 –> 00:32:21,400

so one end will be covered by the other

 

641

00:32:21,480 –> 00:32:23,880

so you can just slide the card

 

642

00:32:23,908 –> 00:32:25,588

into the little envelope

 

643

00:32:26,520 –> 00:32:28,140

and I usually whipe stitch it

 

644

00:32:28,240 –> 00:32:31,520

closed and add a little loop at the top

 

645

00:32:32,920 –> 00:32:36,280

I might try crocheting the top closed

 

646

00:32:38,798 –> 00:32:41,198

it might give it a better neater edge

 

647

00:32:41,900 –> 00:32:45,600

I’m gonna play with that idea, but they’re

 

648

00:32:46,380 –> 00:32:48,880

they’re nothing, they’re little

 

649

00:32:49,794 –> 00:32:51,154

little stockinette

 

650

00:32:52,560 –> 00:32:53,360

rectangles

 

651

00:32:54,080 –> 00:32:58,040

I used US 3 – 3.25 mm

 

652

00:32:58,160 –> 00:33:00,620

just dpns, just two dpns

 

653

00:33:01,900 –> 00:33:04,520

because it probably took me an hour

 

654

00:33:05,457 –> 00:33:06,657

to do each of these

 

655

00:33:07,580 –> 00:33:11,000

and that’s just because I was trying to figure out the best way to do the color changes

 

656

00:33:12,180 –> 00:33:13,640

because they’re nothing at all

 

657

00:33:15,000 –> 00:33:16,820

I mean I was walking around the house knitting on them

 

658

00:33:17,920 –> 00:33:19,620

that seems like a lot

 

659

00:33:20,880 –> 00:33:24,820

but really a bunch of it has been over the past two weeks

 

660

00:33:27,320 –> 00:33:30,360

so it feels like I haven’t actually done that much knitting on them

 

661

00:33:30,420 –> 00:33:31,300

but, you know

 

662

00:33:33,259 –> 00:33:35,179

it’s all relative, isn’t it?

 

663

00:33:35,850 –> 00:33:38,170

so let’s move on to the next segment

 

664

00:33:39,105 –> 00:33:40,145

this segment is

 

665

00:33:42,420 –> 00:33:44,400

I have one finished object

 

666

00:33:45,720 –> 00:33:47,220

which was my entry

 

667

00:33:47,300 –> 00:33:49,340

for the Gentle-along

 

668

00:33:49,440 –> 00:33:51,680

for the Fluffy Fibers podcast

 

669

00:33:55,920 –> 00:33:57,060

it was

 

670

00:33:57,620 –> 00:33:58,940

a bit of a nightmare to do

 

671

00:34:00,056 –> 00:34:02,696

that bug just flew in front of the camera

 

672

00:34:02,696 –> 00:34:04,458

I’m sorry if you see the bugs

 

673

00:34:06,140 –> 00:34:09,080

there’s only two or three in here right now

 

674

00:34:09,260 –> 00:34:12,700

which is better than some nights

 

675

00:34:13,980 –> 00:34:16,000

so I apologize if I keep looking at it

 

676

00:34:17,320 –> 00:34:21,180

so I decided to improvise a floor poof thingy

 

677

00:34:22,064 –> 00:34:24,464

for the Fluffy Fibers Gentle-along

 

678

00:34:25,040 –> 00:34:29,100

and this thing ended up being kind of a nightmare because I was just making it up as I went along

 

679

00:34:29,100 –> 00:34:31,729

I ended up frogging the whole thing back

 

680

00:34:31,840 –> 00:34:34,340

and decided to hold the

 

681

00:34:35,227 –> 00:34:35,727

yarn

 

682

00:34:37,171 –> 00:34:38,611

two strands together

 

683

00:34:38,940 –> 00:34:42,500

and this is a mystery black acrylic yarn

 

684

00:34:42,500 –> 00:34:44,269

it’s heavier than a worsted

 

685

00:34:46,220 –> 00:34:48,220

I don’t know exactly what it is

 

686

00:34:48,940 –> 00:34:51,400

but I ended up changing my design a little bit since

 

687

00:34:51,400 –> 00:34:53,251

I was holding the yarn together

 

688

00:34:53,380 –> 00:34:58,460

so I ended up using a size J – 6.0 mm hook

 

689

00:34:58,460 –> 00:35:00,015

instead of the one I was using before

 

690

00:35:02,740 –> 00:35:05,880

it’s actually smaller than I anticipated, but here it is

 

691

00:35:06,717 –> 00:35:08,237

basically a fat pillow

 

692

00:35:08,920 –> 00:35:10,440

with just a regular

 

693

00:35:10,920 –> 00:35:12,860

circle increase here

 

694

00:35:13,480 –> 00:35:15,220

and then on the edge

 

695

00:35:15,260 –> 00:35:19,760

which is kind of crunchy because I didn’t plan this out very well

 

696

00:35:19,860 –> 00:35:22,120

I did a crocheted seed stitch

 

697

00:35:22,154 –> 00:35:23,754

which I learned how to do

 

698

00:35:23,911 –> 00:35:25,191

which is super cool

 

699

00:35:25,440 –> 00:35:26,560

and then I did

 

700

00:35:27,040 –> 00:35:29,060

messy decreases in the back

 

701

00:35:29,060 –> 00:35:30,894

because I was running out of yarn

 

702

00:35:31,760 –> 00:35:33,320

so it’s a nightmare

 

703

00:35:33,320 –> 00:35:37,124

back here you can see the pillow forms that I shoved in here

 

704

00:35:37,124 –> 00:35:39,582

I put two circular pillow forms in here

 

705

00:35:40,640 –> 00:35:42,460

but this is the part that’s going to be on the ground

 

706

00:35:42,460 –> 00:35:44,239

so I don’t really care that much

 

707

00:35:45,885 –> 00:35:48,745

just a little cushion to sit on upstairs

 

708

00:35:48,760 –> 00:35:50,980

when I go through my yarn stash

 

709

00:35:54,280 –> 00:35:56,600

so I’m not just like kneeling on the floor

 

710

00:35:56,680 –> 00:35:57,320

for hours

 

711

00:35:57,380 –> 00:36:01,220

because sometimes I just spread all the yarn out around me

 

712

00:36:03,235 –> 00:36:04,995

and look at it for hours, so

 

713

00:36:04,995 –> 00:36:06,747

I have something to sit on now

 

714

00:36:07,051 –> 00:36:08,251

so huzzah for that

 

715

00:36:09,300 –> 00:36:12,000

and I still have two works in progress

 

716

00:36:12,000 –> 00:36:13,580

for crochet

 

717

00:36:14,820 –> 00:36:17,140

my scrap granny square blanket

 

718

00:36:19,060 –> 00:36:20,120

still a bunch of swaures

 

719

00:36:20,120 –> 00:36:21,720

I didn’t do any new squares

 

720

00:36:23,780 –> 00:36:26,220

I’m waiting to get one more project out of that

 

721

00:36:28,600 –> 00:36:30,840

teal aqua type color

 

722

00:36:30,857 –> 00:36:33,257

that I made the stars out of last time

 

723

00:36:34,120 –> 00:36:37,340

before I add more squares to my blanket there

 

724

00:36:37,660 –> 00:36:38,160

and

 

725

00:36:39,580 –> 00:36:41,600

other than that I’m waiting to finish my

 

726

00:36:41,600 –> 00:36:44,535

other crochet blanket so that I have scraps to use

 

727

00:36:44,980 –> 00:36:48,860

and that is my Weekender hexagon blanket

 

728

00:36:49,400 –> 00:36:53,140

done in my Doctor Who yarns

 

729

00:36:53,140 –> 00:36:55,043

my left over Doctor Who yarns

 

730

00:36:55,043 –> 00:37:00,960

which are a combination of Lion Brand Wool-Ease and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice

 

731

00:37:01,492 –> 00:37:03,812

and I’ve made some progress on this

 

732

00:37:06,420 –> 00:37:08,060

how does it go – this is the way it goes

 

733

00:37:09,620 –> 00:37:10,340

this month

 

734

00:37:11,240 –> 00:37:12,760

it’s much bigger than it was

 

735

00:37:12,760 –> 00:37:14,400

last time I showed it to you

 

736

00:37:16,621 –> 00:37:17,741

you can see I have

 

737

00:37:18,703 –> 00:37:20,463

two edges completely done

 

738

00:37:21,000 –> 00:37:24,220

because this is scrap yarn and some of these colors have been discontinued

 

739

00:37:25,600 –> 00:37:26,900

in fact the green

 

740

00:37:27,620 –> 00:37:29,540

all I have left is this

 

741

00:37:30,319 –> 00:37:33,359

and this color has been discontinued, so I can

 

742

00:37:34,640 –> 00:37:36,120

my plan is

 

743

00:37:36,260 –> 00:37:37,840

to continue adding

 

744

00:37:37,840 –> 00:37:41,522

full hexagons until it looks like I’m going to run out of the green

 

745

00:37:41,740 –> 00:37:44,040

and then fill in all the edges

 

746

00:37:44,600 –> 00:37:46,380

hopefully not run out of the green

 

747

00:37:46,960 –> 00:37:47,720

and then

 

748

00:37:47,842 –> 00:37:50,482

everything else, which I have plenty of

 

749

00:37:51,080 –> 00:37:54,360

most of these I have another full skein of

 

750

00:37:55,220 –> 00:37:56,280

I will do

 

751

00:37:57,700 –> 00:38:00,520

borders along the outside

 

752

00:38:05,180 –> 00:38:07,860

but I’m very pleased with how this is turning out

 

753

00:38:07,860 –> 00:38:09,140

I love this pattern

 

754

00:38:09,140 –> 00:38:10,660

I love how cool it looks

 

755

00:38:11,260 –> 00:38:13,180

I’m very excited for this to be done

 

756

00:38:13,220 –> 00:38:13,720

anyway

 

757

00:38:14,000 –> 00:38:16,500

let’s move on to the next segment

 

758

00:38:17,140 –> 00:38:17,740

this is

 

759

00:38:21,100 –> 00:38:24,180

this is the hand spinning portion of the show

 

760

00:38:24,980 –> 00:38:25,840

I have

 

761

00:38:28,440 –> 00:38:29,620

three or four

 

762

00:38:30,614 –> 00:38:32,534

finished spinning projects

 

763

00:38:32,534 –> 00:38:33,886

depending on how you look at them

 

764

00:38:34,020 –> 00:38:36,520

first thing, or things

 

765

00:38:36,620 –> 00:38:39,600

I spun the rolags that I got

 

766

00:38:39,720 –> 00:38:41,220

last episode for

 

767

00:38:41,700 –> 00:38:44,360

the April Phoenix Fiber Club

 

768

00:38:45,040 –> 00:38:47,100

and here are the two skeins

 

769

00:38:51,540 –> 00:38:53,360

I spun two rolags

 

770

00:38:53,360 –> 00:38:54,804

and then chain-plied them

 

771

00:38:54,804 –> 00:38:58,193

and then spun the other two rolags and chain-plied them

 

772

00:38:58,320 –> 00:38:59,800

and I was very

 

773

00:39:02,380 –> 00:39:02,880

sort of

 

774

00:39:03,300 –> 00:39:06,440

go with the flow for the spinning on these

 

775

00:39:06,980 –> 00:39:08,640

you can see they are

 

776

00:39:08,920 –> 00:39:10,620

two different weights

 

777

00:39:10,960 –> 00:39:11,960

very clearly

 

778

00:39:12,020 –> 00:39:13,560

in these skeins

 

779

00:39:15,844 –> 00:39:16,964

I was just kind of

 

780

00:39:17,210 –> 00:39:19,450

going with how the fiber was going

 

781

00:39:20,580 –> 00:39:23,800

just getting a feel for how the fiber moves

 

782

00:39:23,800 –> 00:39:26,294

what can I control, what can’t I control

 

783

00:39:26,860 –> 00:39:28,360

so my

 

784

00:39:28,980 –> 00:39:31,380

came out a

 

785

00:39:31,960 –> 00:39:33,580

chunky weight

 

786

00:39:34,120 –> 00:39:36,140

it’s at 7 wraps per inch

 

787

00:39:36,580 –> 00:39:38,020

21 1/2 yards

 

788

00:39:38,300 –> 00:39:39,240

30 g

 

789

00:39:42,388 –> 00:39:44,068

it’s a nice fat chain-ply

 

790

00:39:47,773 –> 00:39:49,613

and there’s a ton of sparkle

 

791

00:39:49,912 –> 00:39:52,392

which got distributed very unevenly

 

792

00:39:52,640 –> 00:39:54,440

I need to work on that

 

793

00:39:56,327 –> 00:39:59,527

I’m not used to spinning with sparkly stuff in it

 

794

00:40:00,022 –> 00:40:02,902

I kept ending up with it clumped in one place

 

795

00:40:03,820 –> 00:40:06,120

which is a little bit of a problem, but

 

796

00:40:06,320 –> 00:40:09,240

something that I will get better

 

797

00:40:09,920 –> 00:40:11,860

at with more practice

 

798

00:40:13,020 –> 00:40:15,240

sorry, bug flew by again

 

799

00:40:16,012 –> 00:40:18,492

second go around was more of a worsted

 

800

00:40:18,583 –> 00:40:20,983

you can see this one’s a lot more even

 

801

00:40:21,320 –> 00:40:23,260

than my chunky skein

 

802

00:40:23,517 –> 00:40:26,957

so I was getting a better feel for how to play with the

 

803

00:40:27,420 –> 00:40:28,120

wool

 

804

00:40:29,341 –> 00:40:31,901

this ended up being at 10 wraps per inch

 

805

00:40:32,000 –> 00:40:34,420

35 yards and it’s 26 g

 

806

00:40:38,200 –> 00:40:40,120

but that was cool to be able to

 

807

00:40:40,660 –> 00:40:43,480

just play with how it spins

 

808

00:40:44,780 –> 00:40:46,820

I don’t know what I’ll use these for

 

809

00:40:49,200 –> 00:40:51,700

they’re not enough to sell in the shop really

 

810

00:40:53,880 –> 00:40:55,820

if anybody wants them

 

811

00:40:56,400 –> 00:40:58,000

we can talk something over, but

 

812

00:40:58,872 –> 00:41:01,512

unless anybody’s jumping at the chance

 

813

00:41:01,512 –> 00:41:04,357

to knit with these, I’ll just keep them in my stash for now

 

814

00:41:04,357 –> 00:41:07,639

and see if there’s anything interesting I can use them for later

 

815

00:41:08,000 –> 00:41:12,000

I also spun up the last two of the Greenwood Fiberworks

 

816

00:41:12,300 –> 00:41:13,420

mini-braids

 

817

00:41:13,820 –> 00:41:15,140

that are merino

 

818

00:41:16,300 –> 00:41:19,060

this one is Sandpiper

 

819

00:41:20,060 –> 00:41:21,280

I spun this up

 

820

00:41:21,600 –> 00:41:23,700

on the raw elm drop spindle

 

821

00:41:23,700 –> 00:41:28,240

and then I plied it on the gear drop spindle that I have

 

822

00:41:30,720 –> 00:41:32,100

I did a chain-ply

 

823

00:41:32,280 –> 00:41:34,280

this ended up being a DK weight

 

824

00:41:34,643 –> 00:41:36,163

it’s a 12 wraps per inch

 

825

00:41:36,360 –> 00:41:37,600

39 yards

 

826

00:41:38,060 –> 00:41:39,280

16 g

 

827

00:41:39,280 –> 00:41:41,362

and I really like how that turned out

 

828

00:41:41,519 –> 00:41:43,599

so that’s gonna go into my stash

 

829

00:41:44,353 –> 00:41:47,713

because I like it enough that I will probably use it

 

830

00:41:55,580 –> 00:41:59,620

and I spun up Rivendell in the same way

 

831

00:42:01,080 –> 00:42:04,000

the first ply on the raw elm drop spindle

 

832

00:42:04,680 –> 00:42:07,240

chain-ply on the gear drop spindle

 

833

00:42:10,305 –> 00:42:12,145

this one’s 14 wraps per inch

 

834

00:42:12,189 –> 00:42:13,389

another DK weight

 

835

00:42:13,480 –> 00:42:16,440

at 43 yards and 15 g

 

836

00:42:16,920 –> 00:42:18,680

it’s a little bit thinner on this one

 

837

00:42:19,140 –> 00:42:21,060

but I also like how this one turned out

 

838

00:42:22,180 –> 00:42:23,960

so that will be going into my stash

 

839

00:42:24,340 –> 00:42:28,340

I still have the giant ball of fiber

 

840

00:42:30,380 –> 00:42:32,120

in progress on my wheel

 

841

00:42:32,260 –> 00:42:34,400

I have one bobbin to show you

 

842

00:42:35,675 –> 00:42:37,595

and this is a little less than

 

843

00:42:38,320 –> 00:42:41,720

half of the fiber I divided for the

 

844

00:42:44,160 –> 00:42:47,100

smaller color changes for the fractal spinning

 

845

00:42:47,251 –> 00:42:49,331

here’s what it looks like so far

 

846

00:42:50,640 –> 00:42:52,480

which is lovely

 

847

00:42:55,980 –> 00:42:57,460

this will be a 2-ply

 

848

00:42:58,820 –> 00:42:59,740

eventually

 

849

00:42:59,860 –> 00:43:04,080

and I’m spinning it for the Maple Leaf shawl

 

850

00:43:06,338 –> 00:43:07,938

which I’m excited about

 

851

00:43:08,380 –> 00:43:09,580

because I think I’m getting

 

852

00:43:10,340 –> 00:43:12,080

some fairly consistent

 

853

00:43:12,380 –> 00:43:13,580

thin plies on here

 

854

00:43:13,580 –> 00:43:16,164

I mean there’s parts where it’s a little thicker ot

 

855

00:43:16,774 –> 00:43:18,534

whatever, I’m not perfect

 

856

00:43:20,720 –> 00:43:21,280

clearly

 

857

00:43:23,900 –> 00:43:25,900

but I’m very pleased with how it’s spinning so far

 

858

00:43:25,900 –> 00:43:28,919

and I can’t wait to get to a point where I can ply it

 

859

00:43:29,440 –> 00:43:32,420

but that’s gonna be a while still

 

860

00:43:32,860 –> 00:43:33,420

because

 

861

00:43:35,100 –> 00:43:36,820

the giant ball was

 

862

00:43:38,160 –> 00:43:42,220

20 oz of fiber

 

863

00:43:43,776 –> 00:43:45,136

that’s a lot of fiber

 

864

00:43:45,368 –> 00:43:47,128

and that’s it for spinning

 

865

00:43:47,560 –> 00:43:48,600

this segment is

 

866

00:43:51,340 –> 00:43:52,720

this is

 

867

00:43:53,240 –> 00:43:54,920

anythign I do with thread

 

868

00:43:55,020 –> 00:43:57,260

I don’t know why I’n explaining it

 

869

00:43:59,120 –> 00:44:01,000

it’s more or less self-explanatory

 

870

00:44:01,036 –> 00:44:03,276

I have a bunch of finished objects

 

871

00:44:04,300 –> 00:44:05,380

this episode

 

872

00:44:05,380 –> 00:44:06,456

for stuff with thread

 

873

00:44:07,540 –> 00:44:10,160

the weather started warming up a few weeks ago

 

874

00:44:10,500 –> 00:44:13,200

and I went on a sewing tear

 

875

00:44:16,042 –> 00:44:17,802

it was a little ridiculous

 

876

00:44:18,780 –> 00:44:21,180

and then it  cooled back down so I stopped sewing for a while

 

877

00:44:21,860 –> 00:44:24,000

but I got a lot done in

 

878

00:44:24,620 –> 00:44:28,240

like one weekend and an addtional afternoon

 

879

00:44:29,017 –> 00:44:30,857

so lots of finished objects

 

880

00:44:31,289 –> 00:44:32,649

mostly small things

 

881

00:44:33,080 –> 00:44:37,440

the first things I did were a couple of bento bags

 

882

00:44:39,560 –> 00:44:42,380

I’ll have the links for the tutorials in the show notes

 

883

00:44:42,480 –> 00:44:43,560

here is one

 

884

00:44:44,180 –> 00:44:45,120

bento bag

 

885

00:44:47,140 –> 00:44:48,940

it seems like it’s a fake bento bag

 

886

00:44:48,940 –> 00:44:50,920

because there’s two different fabrics here

 

887

00:44:51,100 –> 00:44:53,060

so it’s not folded the way

 

888

00:44:53,432 –> 00:44:54,872

the other bento bag is

 

889

00:44:55,230 –> 00:44:56,590

but it’s a little bag

 

890

00:44:57,100 –> 00:44:57,600

and

 

891

00:45:00,191 –> 00:45:02,031

what do I have to put in here?

 

892

00:45:05,540 –> 00:45:06,860

I’ll just put another bag in here

 

893

00:45:08,968 –> 00:45:09,848

get in the bag

 

894

00:45:12,305 –> 00:45:13,585

you put a thing in it

 

895

00:45:16,020 –> 00:45:17,460

you tie it up

 

896

00:45:20,200 –> 00:45:21,480

it’s a little bag

 

897

00:45:25,600 –> 00:45:27,420

there’s definitely some mistakes

 

898

00:45:27,622 –> 00:45:29,942

like right there is a little bit of a

 

899

00:45:30,560 –> 00:45:31,340

a tuck

 

900

00:45:32,740 –> 00:45:33,680

and

 

901

00:45:35,680 –> 00:45:36,480

right there

 

902

00:45:38,800 –> 00:45:39,980

where is it?

 

903

00:45:40,620 –> 00:45:42,480

is it not gonna show up on camera?

 

904

00:45:47,740 –> 00:45:48,460

there it is

 

905

00:45:49,940 –> 00:45:51,400

that little thing right there

 

906

00:45:51,400 –> 00:45:55,049

that’s where there was an opening to flip the fabric inside out

 

907

00:45:55,160 –> 00:45:57,300

I’m very bad

 

908

00:45:57,874 –> 00:46:00,194

getting the fabric to line up again

 

909

00:46:00,640 –> 00:46:02,940

from the little hole where you turn the things inside out

 

910

00:46:03,480 –> 00:46:04,960

something I’m working on

 

911

00:46:06,160 –> 00:46:08,800

but yeah, so that’s a little bento bag that I can use for

 

912

00:46:09,005 –> 00:46:10,125

little projects

 

913

00:46:10,240 –> 00:46:12,680

I might transfer my

 

914

00:46:13,560 –> 00:46:17,040

my work sock projects into one of these

 

915

00:46:17,180 –> 00:46:18,100

little bags

 

916

00:46:19,115 –> 00:46:21,755

because it squishes down pretty easily

 

917

00:46:22,680 –> 00:46:23,480

into my work

 

918

00:46:25,220 –> 00:46:26,360

work bag

 

919

00:46:27,980 –> 00:46:28,860

so that’s one

 

920

00:46:29,380 –> 00:46:30,580

and then I did

 

921

00:46:31,340 –> 00:46:33,760

this one using another tutorial

 

922

00:46:33,760 –> 00:46:35,558

it’s all wrinkly because it was

 

923

00:46:35,558 –> 00:46:39,029

sitting in my bag of stuff to talk about on the podcast

 

924

00:46:39,083 –> 00:46:43,963

but this was just one piece of fabric that gets folded up and sewn together

 

925

00:46:45,448 –> 00:46:47,048

it’s the same principle

 

926

00:46:47,048 –> 00:46:49,692

I don’t think I can fit that project bag in here, but

 

927

00:46:50,235 –> 00:46:51,675

put the thing in there

 

928

00:46:52,160 –> 00:46:53,200

tie it together

 

929

00:46:53,600 –> 00:46:55,080

you have a little bag

 

930

00:46:59,120 –> 00:47:00,680

this is just some

 

931

00:47:01,400 –> 00:47:02,700

fabric that

 

932

00:47:02,840 –> 00:47:05,480

my sister had gotten from my grandma

 

933

00:47:09,093 –> 00:47:11,013

and yeah, this isn’t perfect

 

934

00:47:11,139 –> 00:47:12,819

my points are weird, like

 

935

00:47:14,840 –> 00:47:17,620

on the inside you can see the seam didn’t quite work

 

936

00:47:17,957 –> 00:47:19,317

right in this corner

 

937

00:47:27,380 –> 00:47:27,880

but

 

938

00:47:29,747 –> 00:47:31,187

it works for what it is

 

939

00:47:31,460 –> 00:47:35,560

I can always make more later to perfect my technique

 

940

00:47:38,380 –> 00:47:39,020

but I like

 

941

00:47:40,600 –> 00:47:42,720

it was very simple and quick

 

942

00:47:42,720 –> 00:47:45,240

and i liked getting the practice in

 

943

00:47:45,240 –> 00:47:47,201

and I have something that I can use at the end of it

 

944

00:47:47,731 –> 00:47:52,131

which is sometimes not the case when I’m learning to sew something

 

945

00:47:52,306 –> 00:47:54,706

so that’s two new project bags for me

 

946

00:47:54,706 –> 00:47:55,340

who knows

 

947

00:47:56,120 –> 00:47:57,540

folks might see more of them

 

948

00:47:58,960 –> 00:47:59,920

it’s a possibility

 

949

00:48:00,080 –> 00:48:00,960

they were fun

 

950

00:48:04,520 –> 00:48:08,460

I also made myself a pair of pajama shorts

 

951

00:48:08,460 –> 00:48:12,203

which will look like nothing special at all when I hold them up for the camera

 

952

00:48:12,960 –> 00:48:15,820

but they’re just a pair of shorts

 

953

00:48:18,000 –> 00:48:21,360

with an elastic that’s the wrong size in here

 

954

00:48:22,500 –> 00:48:24,380

it’s a little like half-inch elastic

 

955

00:48:24,380 –> 00:48:26,169

you’re supposed to use like an inch elastic

 

956

00:48:26,620 –> 00:48:29,660

but I didn’t because that’s what I had

 

957

00:48:30,700 –> 00:48:31,520

and

 

958

00:48:32,360 –> 00:48:34,040

I was tearing through this pattern

 

959

00:48:34,420 –> 00:48:37,600

I didn’t want to stop to go buy elastic, so I just used what I had

 

960

00:48:38,028 –> 00:48:40,108

not a big deal, they’re pajamas

 

961

00:48:43,500 –> 00:48:44,880

I also learned how

 

962

00:48:45,006 –> 00:48:47,166

and this is done pretty terribly

 

963

00:48:47,360 –> 00:48:48,220

you can see

 

964

00:48:49,020 –> 00:48:49,980

lots of issues

 

965

00:48:50,100 –> 00:48:51,920

but I learned how to do a

 

966

00:48:52,620 –> 00:48:53,480

blind hem

 

967

00:48:53,753 –> 00:48:54,873

which looks like

 

968

00:48:55,760 –> 00:48:57,640

this on the inside

 

969

00:48:59,700 –> 00:49:02,440

but you’re not supposed to be able to see any stitches on the outside

 

970

00:49:04,205 –> 00:49:07,005

andnif you iron this correctly, you don’t

 

971

00:49:07,100 –> 00:49:07,600

but

 

972

00:49:08,460 –> 00:49:10,380

it’s the first time I’d done it, so

 

973

00:49:11,620 –> 00:49:13,380

not that great

 

974

00:49:13,885 –> 00:49:15,085

but it’s wearable

 

975

00:49:15,085 –> 00:49:18,711

I jst needed a pair of shorts that I could wear as pajamas

 

976

00:49:20,550 –> 00:49:23,190

because all of my pajamas are long pants

 

977

00:49:23,631 –> 00:49:26,111

and that will not do because it is June

 

978

00:49:27,400 –> 00:49:30,680

so shorts and for this I used

 

979

00:49:31,920 –> 00:49:33,260

this Simplicity

 

980

00:49:34,160 –> 00:49:35,420

2503

 

981

00:49:36,640 –> 00:49:38,040

pajamas

 

982

00:49:38,960 –> 00:49:42,400

and there’s a part of the pattern where

 

983

00:49:42,720 –> 00:49:44,260

it tells you to add

 

984

00:49:45,200 –> 00:49:47,500

extra inches if you need to make them longer

 

985

00:49:47,880 –> 00:49:49,960

that’s just where I put the cut off point

 

986

00:49:50,040 –> 00:49:51,660

I just marked that line

 

987

00:49:52,647 –> 00:49:54,727

and made them shorts from there

 

988

00:49:54,800 –> 00:49:55,360

but yeah

 

989

00:49:55,908 –> 00:49:56,408

it was

 

990

00:49:57,000 –> 00:49:59,340

pretty simple, definitely I would try it again

 

991

00:50:02,780 –> 00:50:05,240

probably do it properly this time

 

992

00:50:05,740 –> 00:50:07,180

that worked out for me

 

993

00:50:07,180 –> 00:50:09,000

it’s just some scrap fabric

 

994

00:50:10,197 –> 00:50:11,157

from upstairs

 

995

00:50:11,900 –> 00:50:15,500

and here’s where I went a little bit nuts with a couple of fat quarters

 

996

00:50:17,300 –> 00:50:18,860

I still have some left

 

997

00:50:20,080 –> 00:50:20,980

and

 

998

00:50:22,660 –> 00:50:26,180

I want to say I’ve used this

 

999

00:50:27,540 –> 00:50:30,240

in something else, too, but I can’t remember what

 

1000

00:50:31,100 –> 00:50:32,380

so I made

 

1001

00:50:34,020 –> 00:50:36,040

a scissor holder thingy

 

1002

00:50:36,350 –> 00:50:37,870

this has three pockets

 

1003

00:50:38,005 –> 00:50:40,405

there’s my sewing scissors up there

 

1004

00:50:40,860 –> 00:50:42,740

my little regular scissors up there

 

1005

00:50:43,220 –> 00:50:46,340

and then you can fit another pair of scissors in this bag pocket

 

1006

00:50:47,860 –> 00:50:50,000

I tried to fit my rotary cutter in there

 

1007

00:50:50,000 –> 00:50:51,909

my rotary cutter is too fat to fit in there

 

1008

00:50:52,600 –> 00:50:53,920

but it’s this

 

1009

00:50:54,980 –> 00:50:57,120

stripey cotton fabric

 

1010

00:50:57,640 –> 00:50:58,640

that I got

 

1011

00:50:59,480 –> 00:51:01,220

a fat quarter of

 

1012

00:51:01,994 –> 00:51:03,594

out of the clearance bin

 

1013

00:51:04,300 –> 00:51:05,600

and then this

 

1014

00:51:06,680 –> 00:51:07,460

grey

 

1015

00:51:08,860 –> 00:51:10,120

sort of subtle

 

1016

00:51:11,017 –> 00:51:12,057

flower pattern

 

1017

00:51:13,700 –> 00:51:15,320

which I think looks really good with it

 

1018

00:51:17,104 –> 00:51:19,504

and apparently I liked that pattern

 

1019

00:51:19,504 –> 00:51:21,688

er, that fabric combination so much

 

1020

00:51:21,688 –> 00:51:23,066

I made more things out of it

 

1021

00:51:23,920 –> 00:51:25,600

I also made

 

1022

00:51:27,460 –> 00:51:27,960

a

 

1023

00:51:29,160 –> 00:51:30,520

quilted needle book

 

1024

00:51:34,428 –> 00:51:35,708

a spare button I had

 

1025

00:51:36,880 –> 00:51:39,280

I did just vertical quilt

 

1026

00:51:40,200 –> 00:51:41,920

I didn’t do any horizontal quilting

 

1027

00:51:41,920 –> 00:51:43,220

I just went up and down

 

1028

00:51:43,310 –> 00:51:44,590

some spare elastic

 

1029

00:51:45,140 –> 00:51:48,480

ow, stabbing myself with some needles

 

1030

00:51:48,980 –> 00:51:51,860

you can see I used that grey fabric again

 

1031

00:51:52,953 –> 00:51:55,753

and I used this grey fabric for the pockets

 

1032

00:51:56,431 –> 00:51:57,871

there’s a whole bunch

 

1033

00:51:58,600 –> 00:52:01,000

of needles in this felt

 

1034

00:52:03,849 –> 00:52:06,969

and there’s some little thread cards back here

 

1035

00:52:10,051 –> 00:52:11,571

I am super proud of this

 

1036

00:52:11,571 –> 00:52:13,659

this turned out much better than I thought it would

 

1037

00:52:14,840 –> 00:52:17,000

it didn’t look like it was going to turn out right

 

1038

00:52:17,100 –> 00:52:20,220

until like the last two steps in the tutorial

 

1039

00:52:20,220 –> 00:52:22,190

that there will be a link in the show notes for

 

1040

00:52:23,600 –> 00:52:25,680

but I’m very pleased with how this turned out

 

1041

00:52:25,980 –> 00:52:28,320

I was inspired by

 

1042

00:52:28,340 –> 00:52:31,640

the DPN cozy holder thingies

 

1043

00:52:31,880 –> 00:52:36,580

that Dani from the Little Bobbins Knits podcast makes

 

1044

00:52:36,580 –> 00:52:41,596

and I was never able to catch any of the updates where she sold them in her shop

 

1045

00:52:41,800 –> 00:52:43,220

I wanted some, but

 

1046

00:52:43,371 –> 00:52:45,051

it just was not meant to be

 

1047

00:52:45,360 –> 00:52:45,860

but

 

1048

00:52:47,900 –> 00:52:52,200

but they looked fairly simple construction wise

 

1049

00:52:52,720 –> 00:52:57,500

so I decided to draw out some stuff and try making something similar

 

1050

00:52:58,340 –> 00:52:58,840

and

 

1051

00:52:59,385 –> 00:53:01,545

these are the first two attempts

 

1052

00:53:01,840 –> 00:53:02,560

I made them

 

1053

00:53:03,112 –> 00:53:04,552

reverse of each other

 

1054

00:53:05,265 –> 00:53:06,465

they’re not great

 

1055

00:53:07,420 –> 00:53:09,940

but I did get to practice doing button holes

 

1056

00:53:09,940 –> 00:53:12,140

which aren’t that great, but you know, I need the practice

 

1057

00:53:12,140 –> 00:53:14,580

I’ve never really done button holes practically

 

1058

00:53:14,580 –> 00:53:16,020

this is the first time I’ve

 

1059

00:53:16,020 –> 00:53:19,346

made anything with button holes that I will actually use

 

1060

00:53:19,346 –> 00:53:22,122

and not just made button holes in some scrap fabric

 

1061

00:53:23,100 –> 00:53:24,220

so we’ve got

 

1062

00:53:24,940 –> 00:53:26,300

this owl fabric

 

1063

00:53:27,153 –> 00:53:28,833

on the outside of this one

 

1064

00:53:29,900 –> 00:53:31,540

and on the inside of the other one

 

1065

00:53:31,822 –> 00:53:33,902

and this one has the grey fabric

 

1066

00:53:36,044 –> 00:53:37,004

on the outside

 

1067

00:53:38,547 –> 00:53:40,227

grey fabric on the inside

 

1068

00:53:43,460 –> 00:53:46,720

and I’ve been keeping these on my socks that I’ve been doing two at a time

 

1069

00:53:46,820 –> 00:53:49,220

but they’re kind of floppy and not

 

1070

00:53:50,600 –> 00:53:52,400

they do their job, but

 

1071

00:53:53,394 –> 00:53:54,514

I don’t love them

 

1072

00:53:54,704 –> 00:53:56,864

so I decided to give it another go

 

1073

00:53:58,589 –> 00:53:59,949

doing some quilting

 

1074

00:54:01,836 –> 00:54:04,156

and I think I hot jackpot on this one

 

1075

00:54:04,220 –> 00:54:05,140

I’m kind of

 

1076

00:54:05,764 –> 00:54:06,724

in love with it

 

1077

00:54:07,740 –> 00:54:08,920

so here

 

1078

00:54:10,280 –> 00:54:11,780

is my DPN

 

1079

00:54:14,081 –> 00:54:15,921

cozy thingy that’s quilted

 

1080

00:54:18,040 –> 00:54:22,500

you can see I’m using that same striped fabric and that same grey fabric

 

1081

00:54:23,060 –> 00:54:24,320

I just did

 

1082

00:54:25,300 –> 00:54:27,980

quilting along the stripes

 

1083

00:54:28,420 –> 00:54:30,980

and I found a snap tool

 

1084

00:54:31,804 –> 00:54:35,804

in with my mom’s craft stuff and some snaps in with my buttons

 

1085

00:54:35,804 –> 00:54:37,140

so I put snaps in this

 

1086

00:54:37,140 –> 00:54:38,954

and I learned how to do that for the first time

 

1087

00:54:40,020 –> 00:54:41,800

and my seams in here aren’t the best

 

1088

00:54:41,980 –> 00:54:46,120

like you can see that one is sticking out funny

 

1089

00:54:50,340 –> 00:54:52,400

this one’s sticking out a little funny

 

1090

00:54:53,718 –> 00:54:55,318

it’s not gonna focus now

 

1091

00:54:55,800 –> 00:54:56,760

there we go

 

1092

00:54:56,760 –> 00:54:57,977

sticking out a little funny

 

1093

00:54:58,420 –> 00:55:01,020

but that’s on the inside and I don’t really care that much about it

 

1094

00:55:02,700 –> 00:55:04,440

but this is

 

1095

00:55:05,660 –> 00:55:07,480

this has some heft to it

 

1096

00:55:07,560 –> 00:55:11,200

you can tell the needles won’t poke out the sides

 

1097

00:55:13,300 –> 00:55:14,720

I really like this

 

1098

00:55:15,460 –> 00:55:17,620

I think I’m gonna make myself some more

 

1099

00:55:18,660 –> 00:55:19,780

it was really fun

 

1100

00:55:22,020 –> 00:55:22,660

to do this

 

1101

00:55:22,660 –> 00:55:25,369

I don’t know if I’ll end up doing like a tutorial

 

1102

00:55:25,610 –> 00:55:27,610

for how I did this or something

 

1103

00:55:28,127 –> 00:55:30,367

or if I’m gonna sell some in my shop

 

1104

00:55:30,920 –> 00:55:33,920

it depends on what happens the next time I go up to play with the sewing machine

 

1105

00:55:35,280 –> 00:55:38,340

but I am in love with this DPN

 

1106

00:55:39,225 –> 00:55:40,905

holder thingy that I made

 

1107

00:55:40,905 –> 00:55:44,428

and then I have two works in progress for stuff with thread

 

1108

00:55:46,120 –> 00:55:51,220

unsurprisingly, I did not finish my Christmas cross-stitch from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

 

1109

00:55:51,302 –> 00:55:53,062

but I am on the final letter

 

1110

00:55:53,780 –> 00:55:55,280

so I’m on the S

 

1111

00:55:56,843 –> 00:55:58,443

I’ve got Santa’s sleigh

 

1112

00:55:59,438 –> 00:56:00,478

partially done

 

1113

00:56:01,920 –> 00:56:03,540

the end is in sight

 

1114

00:56:03,540 –> 00:56:06,970

I’ve decided that I’m not going to do the border in white

 

1115

00:56:06,970 –> 00:56:11,025

and deal with the frustration of having to outline it in order to make it visible

 

1116

00:56:11,100 –> 00:56:14,260

I’m going to do it in this kind of brick grey

 

1117

00:56:14,500 –> 00:56:16,140

er, grey, RED

 

1118

00:56:16,140 –> 00:56:17,034

this brick red

 

1119

00:56:20,080 –> 00:56:23,400

it’s muted enough that it’s not popping out at you, but it’s

 

1120

00:56:23,400 –> 00:56:26,807

something that’s clearly easy to see against the offwhite

 

1121

00:56:28,500 –> 00:56:30,700

so I’m looking forward to getting started on that

 

1122

00:56:31,020 –> 00:56:35,020

and I started a what will be a mini-quilt

 

1123

00:56:36,820 –> 00:56:39,780

for that first bento bag with the two pieces of fabric

 

1124

00:56:39,860 –> 00:56:43,640

I ended up with a bunch of right triangles

 

1125

00:56:44,440 –> 00:56:45,940

so I made

 

1126

00:56:47,480 –> 00:56:49,000

a small quilt top

 

1127

00:56:49,680 –> 00:56:52,360

with just like a chevron arrow

 

1128

00:56:56,840 –> 00:57:01,340

I have plans to do another quilt with this type of

 

1129

00:57:02,660 –> 00:57:04,700

arrangement of triangles

 

1130

00:57:05,640 –> 00:57:08,120

so I thought I’d practice on these big triangles

 

1131

00:57:08,928 –> 00:57:11,008

and I think I’m just gonna throw

 

1132

00:57:13,780 –> 00:57:17,860

maybe a 6″ or an 8″ border around this

 

1133

00:57:17,860 –> 00:57:19,250

and make it a small quilt

 

1134

00:57:21,200 –> 00:57:24,220

not really for anybody, it might end up a gift

 

1135

00:57:24,340 –> 00:57:25,300

it might end up

 

1136

00:57:26,187 –> 00:57:28,107

being a new blanket for Penny

 

1137

00:57:30,200 –> 00:57:32,360

Penny the adorable bratty corgi

 

1138

00:57:34,740 –> 00:57:37,080

I don’t know, it depends on how I’m feeling when I’m done with it

 

1139

00:57:38,760 –> 00:57:40,700

just a quick quilt top

 

1140

00:57:44,220 –> 00:57:47,640

might practice some actual quilting techniques

 

1141

00:57:48,760 –> 00:57:50,560

when I’m doing the quilting part of it

 

1142

00:57:52,320 –> 00:57:54,260

just using scraps for this

 

1143

00:57:54,500 –> 00:57:55,960

this segment is

 

1144

00:57:56,100 –> 00:58:00,400

I have surprisingly a lot for this

 

1145

00:58:00,400 –> 00:58:02,580

the first one is one that I was expecting

 

1146

00:58:02,660 –> 00:58:04,860

it is the Phoenix Fiber

 

1147

00:58:05,340 –> 00:58:07,440

Club rolags for May

 

1148

00:58:07,440 –> 00:58:10,640

and they’re actually pretty similar to the ones I got for April

 

1149

00:58:10,640 –> 00:58:12,858

but they’re a lot more yellow in there

 

1150

00:58:15,200 –> 00:58:18,020

and it looks like less sparkle overall

 

1151

00:58:19,760 –> 00:58:21,980

which is probably a good thing considering how

 

1152

00:58:22,333 –> 00:58:24,493

poorly I spun the sparkle part of

 

1153

00:58:24,990 –> 00:58:26,350

the rolags last time

 

1154

00:58:26,700 –> 00:58:28,360

so I’m excited to

 

1155

00:58:28,842 –> 00:58:29,882

play with these

 

1156

00:58:30,160 –> 00:58:32,080

and see how these ones spin up

 

1157

00:58:32,202 –> 00:58:33,562

I think I’m gonna try

 

1158

00:58:34,079 –> 00:58:36,079

putting a little more control

 

1159

00:58:36,311 –> 00:58:37,591

into spinning them

 

1160

00:58:38,323 –> 00:58:41,763

this time around to see what type of yarn I end up with

 

1161

00:58:45,149 –> 00:58:46,989

and then I broke my yarn diet

 

1162

00:58:48,040 –> 00:58:49,580

if you’ve watched my previous episodes

 

1163

00:58:49,580 –> 00:58:53,910

I’m on a yarn diet from February until the end of August pretty much

 

1164

00:58:55,360 –> 00:58:57,820

where I typically

 

1165

00:58:58,600 –> 00:59:01,780

don’t buy yarn unless it’s for specific

 

1166

00:59:02,860 –> 00:59:04,400

things that I’m being paid to do

 

1167

00:59:04,940 –> 00:59:08,060

or it’s so ridiculously cheap that I just might

 

1168

00:59:08,500 –> 00:59:09,300

die if I don’t buy it

 

1169

00:59:10,280 –> 00:59:14,260

like when Joann’s has their clearances and they have sock yarn for 99 cents

 

1170

00:59:14,260 –> 00:59:15,140

type of thing

 

1171

00:59:17,560 –> 00:59:19,560

this doesn’t really fall into

 

1172

00:59:19,902 –> 00:59:24,462

I mean it kind of falls into ridiculous clearance prices some of them

 

1173

00:59:24,780 –> 00:59:25,280

but

 

1174

00:59:27,040 –> 00:59:28,460

I’m not gonna make that excuse

 

1175

00:59:29,000 –> 00:59:30,540

I fell off my yarn diet

 

1176

00:59:30,980 –> 00:59:34,120

my local yarn store had a sidewalk sale

 

1177

00:59:34,900 –> 00:59:36,800

they had one last year at around this time

 

1178

00:59:37,140 –> 00:59:40,220

to cycle out some of the discontinued yarns

 

1179

00:59:40,220 –> 00:59:42,066

or to get new stock in for the summer

 

1180

00:59:42,440 –> 00:59:44,040

so thay have a big ol’ sidewalk sale

 

1181

00:59:44,420 –> 00:59:44,920

and

 

1182

00:59:45,640 –> 00:59:47,080

prices do get slashed

 

1183

00:59:48,440 –> 00:59:51,780

let’s be clear, I did not pay full price on any of these things

 

1184

00:59:52,140 –> 00:59:55,340

I don’t think I paid more than half price on any of these things

 

1185

00:59:55,600 –> 00:59:56,100

but

 

1186

00:59:56,839 –> 00:59:59,159

a lot of it ends up beings yarns that

 

1187

01:00:00,780 –> 01:00:02,820

are expensive to begin with

 

1188

01:00:02,860 –> 01:00:05,400

so cutting back the price

 

1189

01:00:06,190 –> 01:00:10,110

does not typically help that much in terms of my yarn budget

 

1190

01:00:12,013 –> 01:00:13,693

but it was a sidewalk sale

 

1191

01:00:14,140 –> 01:00:14,960

I saw yarn

 

1192

01:00:15,260 –> 01:00:16,140

I bought yarn

 

1193

01:00:16,140 –> 01:00:17,600

and I will show it to you now

 

1194

01:00:17,840 –> 01:00:21,140

I got two skeins of this

 

1195

01:00:22,600 –> 01:00:23,960

Adriafil

 

1196

01:00:24,280 –> 01:00:25,540

Stella Jacq

 

1197

01:00:27,300 –> 01:00:28,760

this is

 

1198

01:00:32,359 –> 01:00:34,679

it doesn’t really have a color name

 

1199

01:00:37,360 –> 01:00:38,640

083

 

1200

01:00:40,820 –> 01:00:42,540

004

 

1201

01:00:44,480 –> 01:00:47,020

it’s 100% superwash wool

 

1202

01:00:47,062 –> 01:00:48,982

I think it’s a worsted weight

 

1203

01:00:50,960 –> 01:00:53,120

I think I’m gonna try a pair of

 

1204

01:00:53,200 –> 01:00:55,720

worsted weight socks with this yarn

 

1205

01:00:57,400 –> 01:01:00,640

because this looks like it will be fun as a pair of socks so

 

1206

01:01:01,483 –> 01:01:03,083

that’s my goal with this

 

1207

01:01:03,320 –> 01:01:06,860

I also bought three skeins of this

 

1208

01:01:07,840 –> 01:01:10,040

Zealana Kiwi Lace Weight

 

1209

01:01:10,520 –> 01:01:12,960

it;s 40% New Zealand Merino

 

1210

01:01:13,960 –> 01:01:17,020

30% organic cotton and 30% possum

 

1211

01:01:17,440 –> 01:01:19,740

and I don’t think this has a colorway name either

 

1212

01:01:20,720 –> 01:01:22,620

yeah, it’s shade 16

 

1213

01:01:22,740 –> 01:01:26,280

but it’s this pretty soft blue

 

1214

01:01:28,000 –> 01:01:30,460

I don’t know what I’m gonna do with this yet

 

1215

01:01:30,500 –> 01:01:31,060

I bought

 

1216

01:01:31,940 –> 01:01:32,440

three

 

1217

01:01:33,540 –> 01:01:35,400

it might end up a shawl

 

1218

01:01:38,555 –> 01:01:40,955

it’s a mystery to me at this point but

 

1219

01:01:42,820 –> 01:01:47,400

I like to try new yarns out of different fibers

 

1220

01:01:47,400 –> 01:01:48,600

especially since

 

1221

01:01:50,880 –> 01:01:52,880

I’ve started getting into the whole

 

1222

01:01:54,040 –> 01:01:56,600

fiber world, it’s really

 

1223

01:01:57,520 –> 01:02:01,140

interesting to see how different fibers react when you knit them

 

1224

01:02:01,200 –> 01:02:03,200

or when you wash them

 

1225

01:02:03,200 –> 01:02:04,992

I wanted to try something different

 

1226

01:02:04,992 –> 01:02:07,515

and I’ve never knit with possum before

 

1227

01:02:07,515 –> 01:02:09,810

and here’s where I went a little bit nuts

 

1228

01:02:13,680 –> 01:02:14,480

so these

 

1229

01:02:15,480 –> 01:02:18,460

were all marked down to $2.00 a skein

 

1230

01:02:19,050 –> 01:02:22,250

and they are Queensland Collections Sugar Rush

 

1231

01:02:22,920 –> 01:02:25,800

I bought two in this

 

1232

01:02:26,220 –> 01:02:27,340

denim color

 

1233

01:02:28,500 –> 01:02:29,700

this is made out of

 

1234

01:02:30,160 –> 01:02:30,660

what was it

 

1235

01:02:31,100 –> 01:02:32,540

sugar cane viscose

 

1236

01:02:32,540 –> 01:02:34,011

which I’ve never worked with before

 

1237

01:02:34,832 –> 01:02:37,232

I bought two in this denim blue color

 

1238

01:02:38,160 –> 01:02:40,060

and I bought four

 

1239

01:02:42,860 –> 01:02:44,380

in this white color

 

1240

01:02:49,972 –> 01:02:51,812

because it was $2.00 a skein

 

1241

01:02:51,940 –> 01:02:55,220

so that’ll be interesting to see how that knits up

 

1242

01:02:55,220 –> 01:02:57,553

I have a shawl pattern in mind for that

 

1243

01:02:57,560 –> 01:02:58,960

that’s in my queue

 

1244

01:02:59,140 –> 01:02:59,640

so

 

1245

01:03:01,241 –> 01:03:03,001

I’m excited to play with it

 

1246

01:03:04,260 –> 01:03:05,920

that’s a bunch of stuff I bought

 

1247

01:03:06,180 –> 01:03:08,220

the next segment is normally

 

1248

01:03:10,381 –> 01:03:12,781

but I did not do anything for the shop

 

1249

01:03:12,954 –> 01:03:15,274

all of my handspun is still up there

 

1250

01:03:15,480 –> 01:03:18,680

the project bags are almost all stull up there

 

1251

01:03:19,090 –> 01:03:21,730

most of the notebooks are still up there

 

1252

01:03:21,730 –> 01:03:23,840

most of the stitch markers are still up there

 

1253

01:03:23,880 –> 01:03:25,800

so there is plenty there

 

1254

01:03:26,047 –> 01:03:29,407

to purchase if you would like to purchase anything

 

1255

01:03:29,407 –> 01:03:32,416

from my shop over at freakishlemon.etsy.com

 

1256

01:03:33,833 –> 01:03:37,673

or if I have sold out of the thing that you’ve had your eye on

 

1257

01:03:38,240 –> 01:03:41,100

feel free to message me on there

 

1258

01:03:42,620 –> 01:03:44,780

asking about a sold listing

 

1259

01:03:46,760 –> 01:03:48,440

I’m perfectly willing to

 

1260

01:03:49,680 –> 01:03:50,560

make a new one

 

1261

01:03:50,700 –> 01:03:53,560

I do intend to make replacement items

 

1262

01:03:53,560 –> 01:03:55,465

for the shop when they sell out, but

 

1263

01:03:55,680 –> 01:03:57,120

I just didn’t get to it

 

1264

01:03:57,120 –> 01:04:00,010

but if you are interested, there’s stuff up there

 

1265

01:04:00,420 –> 01:04:01,220

to purchase

 

1266

01:04:01,780 –> 01:04:03,220

so we will move on to

 

1267

01:04:05,260 –> 01:04:06,800

Stuff I’m Watching

 

1268

01:04:07,000 –> 01:04:08,020

I have

 

1269

01:04:08,600 –> 01:04:10,280

a few things to talk about

 

1270

01:04:11,800 –> 01:04:12,520

this month

 

1271

01:04:12,520 –> 01:04:15,272

because I’ve been watching a lot of things recently

 

1272

01:04:16,080 –> 01:04:19,100

first this I checked out that was new to me

 

1273

01:04:19,122 –> 01:04:21,122

and was really really good was

 

1274

01:04:21,440 –> 01:04:23,000

Bletchley Circle

 

1275

01:04:23,177 –> 01:04:24,937

which I watched on Netflix

 

1276

01:04:25,240 –> 01:04:26,880

it’s a British show

 

1277

01:04:27,180 –> 01:04:30,240

short seasons, like six episodes

 

1278

01:04:30,240 –> 01:04:32,852

per season or series because it’s British

 

1279

01:04:34,840 –> 01:04:36,660

it takes place in the 50’s

 

1280

01:04:36,858 –> 01:04:38,218

and it follows these

 

1281

01:04:38,260 –> 01:04:40,680

women who used to be code breakers

 

1282

01:04:40,680 –> 01:04:42,200

for the British government

 

1283

01:04:42,586 –> 01:04:45,946

of course, they had to swear themselves to secrecy

 

1284

01:04:45,946 –> 01:04:48,442

and go back to their lives after the war

 

1285

01:04:48,442 –> 01:04:50,837

and basically the pattern of a series of murders

 

1286

01:04:50,837 –> 01:04:52,873

catches the eye of one of these women

 

1287

01:04:53,220 –> 01:04:53,720

and

 

1288

01:04:55,349 –> 01:04:59,669

and they decide to use their analytical and codebreaking skills

 

1289

01:04:59,820 –> 01:05:02,160

break the patterns of

 

1290

01:05:02,760 –> 01:05:03,260

crime

 

1291

01:05:05,660 –> 01:05:06,160

each

 

1292

01:05:06,740 –> 01:05:07,860

season or series

 

1293

01:05:08,500 –> 01:05:10,180

follows one mystery

 

1294

01:05:10,280 –> 01:05:11,900

so you get a nice long

 

1295

01:05:12,320 –> 01:05:14,860

hefty chunk of storytelling

 

1296

01:05:15,480 –> 01:05:17,300

and it’s really good

 

1297

01:05:17,486 –> 01:05:18,766

I really enjoyed it

 

1298

01:05:19,680 –> 01:05:23,380

I don’t know if that’s a show that is continuing

 

1299

01:05:23,423 –> 01:05:26,943

if it is, that’s fantastic and I can’t wait to see more

 

1300

01:05:27,440 –> 01:05:29,840

if not, it is self-contained enough

 

1301

01:05:30,160 –> 01:05:31,760

that you don’t feel like

 

1302

01:05:33,174 –> 01:05:34,854

you’ve been left hanging

 

1303

01:05:34,880 –> 01:05:35,440

and then

 

1304

01:05:36,208 –> 01:05:37,888

after watching that show

 

1305

01:05:38,460 –> 01:05:39,460

I really

 

1306

01:05:40,020 –> 01:05:41,240

I’m sorry, my voice is going

 

1307

01:05:41,300 –> 01:05:42,920

I’ve been talking for a long time

 

1308

01:05:42,920 –> 01:05:46,404

was feeling in the mood for more murder mystery type shows

 

1309

01:05:46,404 –> 01:05:49,164

so I started rewatching Miss Fisher’s

 

1310

01:05:50,461 –> 01:05:53,181

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries? Miss Fisher’s Mysteries?

 

1311

01:05:53,181 –> 01:05:54,501

I don’t remember what the name of the show is

 

1312

01:05:54,501 –> 01:05:56,320

but if you search Miss Fisher

 

1313

01:05:56,940 –> 01:05:58,180

on Netflix

 

1314

01:05:58,180 –> 01:05:58,980

you will find it

 

1315

01:05:59,480 –> 01:06:01,080

it’s an Australian show

 

1316

01:06:01,360 –> 01:06:03,780

and it’s about a lady detective

 

1317

01:06:04,900 –> 01:06:06,480

who is

 

1318

01:06:09,500 –> 01:06:10,900

she is

 

1319

01:06:11,860 –> 01:06:14,640

irreverent and fun and flirty

 

1320

01:06:14,680 –> 01:06:17,920

and she’s out there to have a good time and stop bad guys

 

1321

01:06:18,460 –> 01:06:20,160

regardless of what society thinks of her

 

1322

01:06:20,180 –> 01:06:21,300

this takes place

 

1323

01:06:21,980 –> 01:06:25,220

I want to say in the the 20’s or 30’s

 

1324

01:06:29,222 –> 01:06:31,542

that seems to be the style of clothing that

 

1325

01:06:32,328 –> 01:06:34,808

my brain is recognizing from the show

 

1326

01:06:36,920 –> 01:06:39,720

but it is, you know, in the past

 

1327

01:06:41,180 –> 01:06:45,400

so people are constantly telling her that she shouldn’t be doing this, but she’s gonna do it anyway

 

1328

01:06:46,560 –> 01:06:49,080

it’s a really great show

 

1329

01:06:49,200 –> 01:06:53,360

but I didn’t finish rewatching Miss Fisher’s Mysteries there

 

1330

01:06:54,578 –> 01:06:57,698

because Netflix released their series Sense8

 

1331

01:07:00,620 –> 01:07:02,720

which is a show about

 

1332

01:07:03,020 –> 01:07:04,420

the premise is that

 

1333

01:07:05,920 –> 01:07:10,660

there are people who have psychic connections to

 

1334

01:07:10,960 –> 01:07:12,400

seven other people

 

1335

01:07:13,108 –> 01:07:14,788

they forma  group of eight

 

1336

01:07:16,080 –> 01:07:21,260

and the show starts with the awakening of these eight people

 

1337

01:07:21,620 –> 01:07:22,580

and it follows

 

1338

01:07:23,140 –> 01:07:26,100

them in their normal lives

 

1339

01:07:26,100 –> 01:07:28,786

how this is affecting their normal lives

 

1340

01:07:28,786 –> 01:07:30,773

and all this stuff and it’s really

 

1341

01:07:31,280 –> 01:07:32,080

it’s a great

 

1342

01:07:32,680 –> 01:07:34,760

puzzle to watch

 

1343

01:07:34,820 –> 01:07:37,920

and these characters are so interesting

 

1344

01:07:40,997 –> 01:07:43,157

I mean, no spoilers, but they’re

 

1345

01:07:43,718 –> 01:07:46,038

each of them fascinating, I wasn’t

 

1346

01:07:48,720 –> 01:07:51,680

bored by any of the individual characters

 

1347

01:07:51,680 –> 01:07:56,321

sometimes that happens with ensemble pieces where you care about two or three of the characters

 

1348

01:07:56,400 –> 01:08:00,040

and you could not care less about

 

1349

01:08:01,280 –> 01:08:02,720

any of the rest of them

 

1350

01:08:02,880 –> 01:08:07,640

I was entertained and itnerested in all eight of these characters

 

1351

01:08:07,652 –> 01:08:09,412

and how they tied together

 

1352

01:08:10,660 –> 01:08:13,400

and how this mystery started to unfold

 

1353

01:08:14,373 –> 01:08:18,533

this is a series that has a lot of questions that are unanswered

 

1354

01:08:18,540 –> 01:08:19,040

at this point

 

1355

01:08:19,040 –> 01:08:21,920

I marathoned the whole thing straight through in two days

 

1356

01:08:23,360 –> 01:08:26,740

so I’ve seen the whole show and I’m probably gonna go back and watch it again

 

1357

01:08:27,240 –> 01:08:28,980

just to see if there was anything that I missed because

 

1358

01:08:28,980 –> 01:08:31,660

because I was just watching it straight through

 

1359

01:08:34,135 –> 01:08:36,375

I would recommend checking it out

 

1360

01:08:36,820 –> 01:08:38,340

if you like that kind of

 

1361

01:08:40,060 –> 01:08:43,620

puzzle type of almost scifi thing

 

1362

01:08:44,580 –> 01:08:45,860

I really enjoyed it

 

1363

01:08:46,040 –> 01:08:47,440

Stuff I’m Reading

 

1364

01:08:47,500 –> 01:08:50,500

I finished Night Watch by Terry Pratchett

 

1365

01:08:50,500 –> 01:08:52,120

which is a fantastic book

 

1366

01:08:52,240 –> 01:08:55,220

and I was not disappointed at all by the end

 

1367

01:08:56,000 –> 01:08:59,380

I just sat down and read it one weekend

 

1368

01:08:59,380 –> 01:09:01,827

just straight through and it was amazing

 

1369

01:09:03,620 –> 01:09:05,540

I love Terry Pratchett books

 

1370

01:09:05,965 –> 01:09:07,805

and this one was really good

 

1371

01:09:10,940 –> 01:09:12,700

if you’re interested in Terry Pratchett books

 

1372

01:09:12,700 –> 01:09:14,560

this might not be the best one to start with

 

1373

01:09:14,560 –> 01:09:17,252

because it does mention a bunch of characters that

 

1374

01:09:19,500 –> 01:09:21,580

only briefly show up in the book

 

1375

01:09:23,120 –> 01:09:26,340

I think having a basic understanding of who the

 

1376

01:09:26,980 –> 01:09:28,300

City Watch is

 

1377

01:09:28,640 –> 01:09:29,360

would help

 

1378

01:09:29,920 –> 01:09:33,120

if you’re new to the Pratchett Discworld series

 

1379

01:09:34,068 –> 01:09:35,188

it is really good

 

1380

01:09:35,188 –> 01:09:38,437

if you are a fan of Discworld, then you should read it

 

1381

01:09:39,140 –> 01:09:41,260

so then I started reading

 

1382

01:09:41,360 –> 01:09:44,200

Planet of Exile by Ursula K. Le Guin

 

1383

01:09:45,840 –> 01:09:47,200

I’m not very far in it

 

1384

01:09:47,789 –> 01:09:50,429

but I really like what I’m reading so far

 

1385

01:09:50,540 –> 01:09:52,620

I’m only really in chapter two so

 

1386

01:09:52,620 –> 01:09:56,211

I don’t really have anything to say about it except that I like it so far

 

1387

01:09:56,211 –> 01:09:57,060

Stuff I’m Playing

 

1388

01:09:57,060 –> 01:09:58,900

still Lego Lord of the Rings

 

1389

01:09:59,820 –> 01:10:02,280

I still haven’t played any

 

1390

01:10:03,800 –> 01:10:04,840

since last time

 

1391

01:10:06,660 –> 01:10:07,540

I made a video

 

1392

01:10:08,480 –> 01:10:10,840

I was planning on doing that today, but then

 

1393

01:10:12,604 –> 01:10:15,324

I ended up filming this video instead, so

 

1394

01:10:15,324 –> 01:10:17,670

hopefully I’ll get some time tomorrow to play

 

1395

01:10:17,670 –> 01:10:19,885

and then podcast recommendations

 

1396

01:10:19,885 –> 01:10:22,140

so for my knitting podcast recommendation

 

1397

01:10:22,220 –> 01:10:26,560

I’m going to recommend the Yarnings podcast with Kristine

 

1398

01:10:29,000 –> 01:10:32,740

I’m subcribed to her podcast through

 

1399

01:10:32,940 –> 01:10:35,860

Pocket Casts which is the app that I use

 

1400

01:10:36,280 –> 01:10:38,400

both on Android and iOS

 

1401

01:10:38,460 –> 01:10:40,100

to listen to podcasts

 

1402

01:10:40,320 –> 01:10:42,940

I believe she’s on iTunes

 

1403

01:10:43,187 –> 01:10:45,267

I don’t know if she’s on YouTube

 

1404

01:10:45,267 –> 01:10:47,379

I do not know that off the top of my head

 

1405

01:10:48,000 –> 01:10:51,600

but she’s pretty easy to find if you search the Yarnings podcast

 

1406

01:10:51,600 –> 01:10:54,640

I really like her podcast, she’s very

 

1407

01:10:55,400 –> 01:10:56,200

positive

 

1408

01:10:57,220 –> 01:10:58,300

and upbeat

 

1409

01:10:58,300 –> 01:11:00,840

and she just enjoys the things that she makes

 

1410

01:11:01,068 –> 01:11:03,148

even if she messes something up

 

1411

01:11:03,340 –> 01:11:04,940

she finds a way to

 

1412

01:11:05,340 –> 01:11:08,320

alter it or turn it into something else

 

1413

01:11:08,420 –> 01:11:08,980

and just

 

1414

01:11:09,969 –> 01:11:12,129

she’s very joyful in her podcast

 

1415

01:11:13,340 –> 01:11:15,100

which is really nice

 

1416

01:11:15,770 –> 01:11:17,210

she’s also a huge nerd

 

1417

01:11:17,280 –> 01:11:21,000

so if you like nerdy podcasters, that’s the way to go

 

1418

01:11:21,040 –> 01:11:23,780

she often talks about board games

 

1419

01:11:26,400 –> 01:11:27,760

and sometimes about

 

1420

01:11:27,800 –> 01:11:30,120

nerdy TV shows or movies that she’s

 

1421

01:11:30,495 –> 01:11:32,015

seen over the past week

 

1422

01:11:34,350 –> 01:11:38,270

if that’s up your alley, I’d check out the Yarnings podcast

 

1423

01:11:38,980 –> 01:11:41,200

for my non-knitting podcast recommendation

 

1424

01:11:41,300 –> 01:11:45,120

I’d suggest the Daily Tech News Show

 

1425

01:11:45,640 –> 01:11:48,700

it is a daily podcast for weekdays

 

1426

01:11:49,060 –> 01:11:53,320

but it is a short podcast, it’s usually

 

1427

01:11:54,660 –> 01:11:56,500

20 – 30 minutes

 

1428

01:11:56,500 –> 01:12:00,991

sometimes it’ll go up to 40 minutes if there’s something big in tech news

 

1429

01:12:00,991 –> 01:12:02,546

that requires more discussion

 

1430

01:12:02,640 –> 01:12:05,520

it’s hosted by Tom Merritt

 

1431

01:12:06,260 –> 01:12:08,020

and a bunch of other guests

 

1432

01:12:08,317 –> 01:12:11,037

there are regular cohosts that cycle out

 

1433

01:12:11,200 –> 01:12:16,520

Patrick Beja from Frenchspin.com, The Phileas Club, and Pixels

 

1434

01:12:18,928 –> 01:12:23,008

Scott Johnson from the Frogpants Network, Veronica Belmont

 

1435

01:12:24,177 –> 01:12:30,177

on Fridays Len Peralta does an illustration of the things that they’ve been talking about

 

1436

01:12:30,374 –> 01:12:35,254

you’ll know him from the Geek-a-Week project, if you followed that at all

 

1437

01:12:36,760 –> 01:12:38,280

plus other guests from

 

1438

01:12:38,540 –> 01:12:41,200

Justin Robert Young from Night Attack

 

1439

01:12:41,200 –> 01:12:43,733

those are some of the regular people he has on

 

1440

01:12:44,120 –> 01:12:44,620

and

 

1441

01:12:46,000 –> 01:12:47,680

he cycles in other guests

 

1442

01:12:47,720 –> 01:12:52,800

sometimes tech experts will come on and talk about the tech news with him

 

1443

01:12:52,923 –> 01:12:55,403

it’s very interesting if you’re into

 

1444

01:12:57,340 –> 01:12:59,320

learning about what is being

 

1445

01:13:00,460 –> 01:13:04,040

worked on or being announced in technology news

 

1446

01:13:06,900 –> 01:13:08,460

I find it pretty entertaining

 

1447

01:13:08,480 –> 01:13:09,600

it’s a great show

 

1448

01:13:09,727 –> 01:13:13,807

so if you’re interested in tech news, the Daily Tech News Show

 

1449

01:13:14,400 –> 01:13:18,440

you can subscribe to that on iTunes or whatever

 

1450

01:13:18,660 –> 01:13:21,220

podcast aggregator you use

 

1451

01:13:21,220 –> 01:13:25,386

I don’t know if he’s one of the people who puts things up on YouTube

 

1452

01:13:25,920 –> 01:13:26,420

I know

 

1453

01:13:27,440 –> 01:13:30,380

a lot of audio podcasters do that now

 

1454

01:13:31,120 –> 01:13:32,120

I’m not sure if he does

 

1455

01:13:32,580 –> 01:13:34,020

it is an audio podcast

 

1456

01:13:35,500 –> 01:13:38,660

the Yarnings podcast with Kristine is a video podcast

 

1457

01:13:38,800 –> 01:13:42,160

Daily Tech News Show is primarily an audio podcast

 

1458

01:13:42,960 –> 01:13:44,640

but you can watch a livestream of it, too

 

1459

01:13:44,640 –> 01:13:45,960

there is that available

 

1460

01:13:46,045 –> 01:13:47,485

there is a livestream

 

1461

01:13:48,400 –> 01:13:49,620

of the podcast every day

 

1462

01:13:49,620 –> 01:13:52,630

I don’t know what time it is because I’m at work during that time

 

1463

01:13:52,720 –> 01:13:54,840

so it doesn’t matter for me

 

1464

01:13:57,000 –> 01:14:00,040

but I will have links to the show in the show notes

 

1465

01:14:00,040 –> 01:14:01,389

if you want to find out more

 

1466

01:14:01,389 –> 01:14:04,209

and that should just about do it for me

 

1467

01:14:04,209 –> 01:14:08,795

remember that the show notes can be found at my website at freakishlemon.com

 

1468

01:14:08,795 –> 01:14:10,759

you can follow me as “freakishlemon”

 

1469

01:14:11,540 –> 01:14:13,160

on Twitter, tumblr

 

1470

01:14:13,600 –> 01:14:15,260

Instagram, Ravelry

 

1471

01:14:15,460 –> 01:14:16,900

all those good places

 

1472

01:14:18,040 –> 01:14:22,120

check out the Freakish Lemon Video Podcast Ravelry group

 

1473

01:14:22,240 –> 01:14:23,860

introduce yourself

 

1474

01:14:24,660 –> 01:14:25,160

or lurk

 

1475

01:14:25,500 –> 01:14:27,440

I’m a big group lurker

 

1476

01:14:27,440 –> 01:14:29,925

you don’t have to comment if you don’t want to

 

1477

01:14:29,925 –> 01:14:32,925

I’m not pressuring you, but if you want to say hi, go ahead and say hi

 

1478

01:14:33,200 –> 01:14:36,560

check out my shop over at freakishlemon.etsy.com

 

1479

01:14:36,900 –> 01:14:41,500

links will be in the down bar if you are on YouTube watching this

 

1480

01:14:42,260 –> 01:14:43,540

and that’s about it

 

1481

01:14:44,020 –> 01:14:46,600

and my voice is pretty much done for the day

 

1482

01:14:48,040 –> 01:14:52,120

note to self, maybe don’t podcast after a day of work

 

1483

01:14:52,120 –> 01:14:55,015

because your voice will give out by the time the video ends

 

1484

01:14:55,640 –> 01:14:57,440

so, that’s it

 

1485

01:14:57,660 –> 01:15:00,380

I will see you in July

 

1486

01:15:01,220 –> 01:15:01,780

goodbye
