0:02:51.200,0:02:52.440
Hello.

0:02:52.440,0:02:54.300
This is Adrian of the Freakish Lemon

0:02:54.300,0:02:57.090
Podcast. I use masculine pronouns and

0:02:57.090,0:02:58.590
we’re doing something a little different

0:02:58.590,0:03:05.810
today. I talked last summer about doing

0:03:05.810,0:03:08.880
dedicated videos for projects a la all

0:03:08.880,0:03:12.810
the costume youtubers out there and I’ve

0:03:12.810,0:03:16.530
been trying and that’s not going well. My

0:03:16.530,0:03:20.370
motivation to keep those up is not

0:03:20.370,0:03:23.400
good. I’m trashing one of them. The only

0:03:23.400,0:03:25.290
one that I’m planning on actually

0:03:25.290,0:03:29.519
completing is the machine knitting

0:03:29.519,0:03:34.319
sweater, hand knitting pattern to machine

0:03:34.319,0:03:40.190
knitting conversion thing that I started.

0:03:40.190,0:03:42.900
I’m just not motivated to keep up those

0:03:42.900,0:03:45.000
projects long term because I’m slow and

0:03:45.000,0:03:47.190
it takes me forever to do things. So I

0:03:47.190,0:03:49.829
thought maybe we should try some vlog

0:03:49.829,0:03:53.970
style videos for what’s going on in the

0:03:53.970,0:03:56.130
craft room. It’s a little hard to talk

0:03:56.130,0:03:58.950
about techniques I might be using and

0:03:58.950,0:04:02.610
stuff for sewing on the regular podcast

0:04:02.610,0:04:06.420
because I’m usually just kind of doing

0:04:06.420,0:04:08.299
all the things at once on the weekend

0:04:08.299,0:04:11.310
and not necessarily breaking it down in

0:04:11.310,0:04:15.209
a coherent manner in the podcast. So we’ll try

0:04:15.209,0:04:18.930
some vlog style stuff. So today is

0:04:18.930,0:04:24.180
Saturday March 7th and this is the state

0:04:24.180,0:04:27.870
of the craft room today. The only thing

0:04:27.870,0:04:29.580
I’ve done this morning, which I will have

0:04:29.580,0:04:34.370
shown you, is I did some spinning on my

0:04:34.370,0:04:38.660
Ashford Kiwi 2 wheel over there. I

0:04:38.660,0:04:41.010
really got distracted this morning

0:04:41.010,0:04:45.240
dealing with scrap fabric. That is fabric

0:04:45.240,0:04:49.909
that needs to be donated, but I was

0:04:49.909,0:04:54.509
shredding cabbage, as they say in the

0:04:54.509,0:05:00.300
costuber biz. I filled up this plastic

0:05:00.300,0:05:02.129
bag with shredded scraps.

0:05:02.129,0:05:06.419
I have scrap wool bits that I’m not

0:05:06.419,0:05:08.759
really interested in spinning because

0:05:08.759,0:05:11.610
they’re like leftover stuff that came

0:05:11.610,0:05:15.870
off the drum carder and I filled up-

0:05:15.870,0:05:19.050
well, not filled up- I put a bunch of

0:05:19.050,0:05:22.830
scrap stuff in this ziplock bag, too. So

0:05:22.830,0:05:25.770
they’re in this giant under bed garment

0:05:25.770,0:05:29.550
bag situation. I need two hands to get

0:05:29.550,0:05:32.009
that back in. So I spent basically all of

0:05:32.009,0:05:33.300
my morning doing that and then

0:05:33.300,0:05:37.639
reorganizing some of my this corner

0:05:37.639,0:05:40.770
because I shuffled around some fabrics. I

0:05:40.770,0:05:44.069
got my scrap bin. This is a garbage can

0:05:44.069,0:05:47.039
from Ikea to throw my scraps in there

0:05:47.039,0:05:51.389
until I want to deal with them. That kind

0:05:51.389,0:05:53.339
of took up my whole morning which I

0:05:53.339,0:05:57.449
didn’t intend. So things on the to-do

0:05:57.449,0:06:01.139
list for this weekend which may or may

0:06:01.139,0:06:05.580
not get done- frog this sweater. This is a

0:06:05.580,0:06:07.800
fingering weight machine knit sweater

0:06:07.800,0:06:09.419
that’s covered in dog hair even though

0:06:09.419,0:06:13.349
it’s freshly washed. I just don’t wear it.

0:06:13.349,0:06:17.069
This hits me at a weird point and the

0:06:17.069,0:06:19.529
front is too short. The back is the

0:06:19.529,0:06:21.360
perfect length. The front is too short. So

0:06:21.360,0:06:26.479
it fits me weird. I have a pattern from

0:06:26.479,0:06:33.330
Susan Guagliumi for a machine knit yoke

0:06:33.330,0:06:35.490
sweater that I want to try, so I figure I

0:06:35.490,0:06:39.810
will rip this out and try out that

0:06:39.810,0:06:41.939
sweater pattern using this yarn so I’m

0:06:41.939,0:06:45.300
not busting into new stash for an

0:06:45.300,0:06:49.529
experiment. I have this bin of things

0:06:49.529,0:06:51.930
that need to be washed and blocked. I

0:06:51.930,0:06:55.860
have handspun, more handspun, a swatch

0:06:55.860,0:07:01.379
for a new machine knit cotton sweater

0:07:01.379,0:07:02.610
project,

0:07:02.610,0:07:05.610
more handspun, the final two pieces of

0:07:05.610,0:07:07.259
that machine knit sweater that I’ve been

0:07:07.259,0:07:09.509
working on for ages that’s in that

0:07:09.509,0:07:16.080
basket over there. So those things need

0:07:16.080,0:07:21.979
to get washed and blocked. Here I have

0:07:21.979,0:07:26.550
t-shirt carnage. So I have- what’s the

0:07:26.550,0:07:28.219
name of this pattern?

0:07:28.219,0:07:35.009
It’s the Liesl & Co men’s metro t-shirt

0:07:35.009,0:07:39.750
with my slight adjustments to fit me.

0:07:39.750,0:07:43.860
Hello, there we go. I have these two- this

0:07:43.860,0:07:47.819
Halloween one and this stripy one- that

0:07:47.819,0:07:49.800
are mostly finished. I just need to do

0:07:49.800,0:07:52.439
the hem and cuffs.

0:07:52.439,0:07:54.659
They’re all pinned. They just need to be

0:07:54.659,0:07:58.020
sewn and then I have all the pieces cut

0:07:58.020,0:08:01.219
for this gray one and this Star Wars

0:08:01.219,0:08:06.539
kind of burgundy fabric. And I have to

0:08:06.539,0:08:09.539
put that drill somewhere because it’s

0:08:09.539,0:08:14.909
done charging. I also have this. This is

0:08:14.909,0:08:18.719
my newest weaving project. This is going

0:08:18.719,0:08:21.900
to be well- I mean it is, you can see it.

0:08:21.900,0:08:26.250
I’ve done the warp. I need to sley it

0:08:26.250,0:08:29.610
through the reed. You can see I’ve got

0:08:29.610,0:08:31.409
the two strands here, so one of these

0:08:31.409,0:08:34.529
strands needs to go into the hole. It’s

0:08:34.529,0:08:37.919
going to be hopefully a pretty cool

0:08:37.919,0:08:41.760
effect because the black and gray is a

0:08:41.760,0:08:45.360
gradient and it’s gonna be a red and

0:08:45.360,0:08:50.490
black, red and gray houndstooth pattern

0:08:50.490,0:08:53.970
with a partially gradient warp, which I

0:08:53.970,0:08:56.399
think will be neat. But I need to spend

0:08:56.399,0:09:01.589
some time poking yarn through holes. Was

0:09:01.589,0:09:02.420
there anything else?

0:09:02.420,0:09:05.279
Just do a quick pan so there’s nothing

0:09:05.279,0:09:13.120
else I’m missing. No, I think that’s it for now.

0:09:13.120,0:09:22.390
Yes, so that’s on the to do list cuz I

0:09:22.390,0:09:24.670
can’t do anything with that machine or

0:09:24.670,0:09:30.520
that machine until I have- I can’t do-

0:09:30.520,0:09:32.710
I don’t have projects for this machine

0:09:32.710,0:09:35.200
right now because I need that cotton

0:09:35.200,0:09:37.540
swatch to be washed so I can measure it

0:09:37.540,0:09:40.810
and this machine’s not doing anything

0:09:40.810,0:09:44.710
until I frog that sweater so that I can

0:09:44.710,0:09:47.170
do the yoked sweater experiment because

0:09:47.170,0:09:50.529
that is a giant swatch and also I still

0:09:50.529,0:09:52.570
have the swatch from last time so that’s

0:09:52.570,0:09:56.170
what needs to get done at some point

0:09:56.170,0:09:59.080
this weekend.

0:10:55.210,0:13:42.570
[Music]

0:13:42.570,0:13:49.450
So, started hemming this shirt and I’m

0:13:49.450,0:13:51.660
gonna be in seam ripper land for a while

0:13:51.660,0:13:56.190
because while going over the side seam,

0:13:56.190,0:14:03.730
it got stuck and I had to cut it out. Now

0:14:03.730,0:14:05.860
luckily this shirt is long enough that I

0:14:05.860,0:14:08.080
can just fold up an inch instead of the

0:14:08.080,0:14:12.190
half inch so that hole won’t be a

0:14:12.190,0:14:18.780
problem but I did sew like the whole back

0:14:18.780,0:14:23.170
and it takes a long time to seam rip

0:14:23.170,0:14:28.810
knit fabrics, so I have no idea if any of

0:14:28.810,0:14:31.110
these shirts are gonna be done today. So

0:14:31.110,0:14:34.720
checking back in. It is almost 7:30. I

0:14:34.720,0:14:38.410
have finished dealing with this

0:14:38.410,0:14:44.190
Halloween shirt and it is complete.

0:14:44.190,0:14:49.750
So that’s that shirt and the additional

0:14:49.750,0:14:53.700
hem take up to deal with that hole

0:14:53.700,0:14:55.890
actually ended up working really well

0:14:55.890,0:14:59.920
because I tried this shirt on over the

0:14:59.920,0:15:02.470
shirt and it’s longer. I don’t know how

0:15:02.470,0:15:05.050
that happened, but I did finish this

0:15:05.050,0:15:12.990
shirt. I finished this shirt. And I

0:15:12.990,0:15:20.020
finished this shirt. I was doing these

0:15:20.020,0:15:21.610
first two at the same time because I was

0:15:21.610,0:15:23.800
using the same black thread for both of

0:15:23.800,0:15:25.690
them. Had to switch over to the gray

0:15:25.690,0:15:28.480
thread for the gray shirt. I just

0:15:28.480,0:15:31.900
finished that and since it’s 7:30, I am

0:15:31.900,0:15:34.660
not gonna start on the last shirt because I

0:15:34.660,0:15:43.270
have to change out the thread again to

0:15:43.270,0:15:49.270
this burgundy type color for this Star

0:15:49.270,0:15:50.529
Wars shirt.

0:15:50.529,0:15:54.940
So I’m not gonna deal with that tonight.

0:15:54.940,0:15:56.339
Ummm…

0:15:56.339,0:15:59.290
Maybe I’ll fill up the bobbin and just

0:15:59.290,0:16:01.449
get the machine threaded so it’s ready

0:16:01.449,0:16:05.610
to go. I did finish sleying the loom and

0:16:05.610,0:16:08.620
started the project on there. Already

0:16:08.620,0:16:14.589
there are mistakes in it. I am not a very

0:16:14.589,0:16:18.610
careful weaver which is something I need

0:16:18.610,0:16:23.620
to work on but that’s started. And I

0:16:23.620,0:16:25.930
always build in a lot of extra in my

0:16:25.930,0:16:28.629
weaving stuff. I don’t have an exact plan

0:16:28.629,0:16:30.009
for this but I have a kind of

0:16:30.009,0:16:32.170
generalized idea for what I wanted to do

0:16:32.170,0:16:34.529
for this, so there should be plenty of

0:16:34.529,0:16:37.689
extra if I need to just lop that bit off.

0:16:37.689,0:16:39.999
But there’s always mistakes in my

0:16:39.999,0:16:42.939
weaving. Always. So I’m not that worried

0:16:42.939,0:16:49.329
about it. Um, I got that done. The washing

0:16:49.329,0:16:52.779
and blocking I got done. I did frog that

0:16:52.779,0:16:55.360
sweater that yarn is still in a tub of

0:16:55.360,0:16:57.399
water. I need to deal with that tonight

0:16:57.399,0:16:59.769
and I think that was most of the stuff I

0:16:59.769,0:17:03.550
was planning on doing this weekend. So

0:17:03.550,0:17:07.120
good job me for doing that. That’s

0:17:07.120,0:17:11.699
gonna really do it for this weekend. I

0:17:11.699,0:17:14.230
don’t know what the rest of this week is

0:17:14.230,0:17:17.439
gonna look like in terms of vlogging, but

0:17:17.439,0:17:20.679
I suppose I’ll update you when I do some

0:17:20.679,0:17:22.119
vlogging then.

0:17:22.119,0:18:09.200
[Music]

0:18:09.200,0:18:16.790
Hello. I’m killing time before Gabby’s wedding

0:18:16.790,0:18:18.590
setup and rehearsal dinner, so I thought

0:18:18.590,0:18:21.290
I’d show you the quick and dirty way

0:18:21.290,0:18:24.010
that I measure my hand spun skeins

0:18:24.010,0:18:26.200
because I’m not great at measuring

0:18:26.200,0:18:29.660
yardage accurately so I’m just gonna

0:18:29.660,0:18:33.500
wing it. What I do is I stick one finger

0:18:33.500,0:18:39.200
in each side of the skein and then I put

0:18:39.200,0:18:44.600
my fingers one on zero and one is here

0:18:44.600,0:18:48.820
on- I don’t pull it taut but I pull it

0:18:48.820,0:18:54.440
you know, about where there’s starting to

0:18:54.440,0:19:04.480
be tension. So that’s 22. 22 inches

0:19:04.480,0:19:08.260
times two because it’s a loop- oops.

0:19:08.260,0:19:14.770
So that’s 44 inches around the loop and

0:19:14.770,0:19:19.429
then I just count how many strands are

0:19:19.429,0:19:25.669
in a loop- or in the loop, I should say. 4-

0:19:25.669,0:19:34.760
5- 6- 7- 8- 9- 72. So I have 44 inches times

0:19:34.760,0:19:41.270
72. 3168 and then I divide that by 36,

0:19:41.270,0:19:43.809
which is how many inches are in a yard,

0:19:43.809,0:19:49.840
which is 88 yards. So that’s my

0:19:49.840,0:19:53.270
approximate length measurement. Ss that

0:19:53.270,0:19:55.820
exactly what this skein comes out to? Not

0:19:55.820,0:19:59.270
on your life. Is that close enough to be

0:19:59.270,0:20:01.760
able to figure out if I need 88 yards of

0:20:01.760,0:20:10.880
a thing in a project? Probably.

0:20:10.880,0:20:13.370
Yeah, it- I find it difficult to measure

0:20:13.370,0:20:15.440
these scans accurately anyway because

0:20:15.440,0:20:19.010
there’s always incomplete circuits

0:20:19.010,0:20:25.250
around the skein, so that’s my quick and

0:20:25.250,0:20:27.020
dirty method of getting an approximate

0:20:27.020,0:20:29.540
measurement. Just two fingers in each

0:20:29.540,0:20:33.770
side measure it, times two, times the

0:20:33.770,0:20:39.050
number of strands, divided by 36. So

0:20:39.050,0:20:42.890
here’s an example of what- if it’ll

0:20:42.890,0:20:45.410
focus, there we go.

0:20:45.410,0:20:47.690
That’s an example of what my tags look

0:20:47.690,0:20:51.680
like- a generic name for the yarn, yards,

0:20:51.680,0:20:57.770
grams, wraps per inch. And I don’t even

0:20:57.770,0:21:03.890
unravel it from the skein. I’ll just grab

0:21:03.890,0:21:09.350
a bunch, stick them in my wraps per inch

0:21:09.350,0:21:13.690
tool and see you know how many

0:21:13.690,0:21:27.440
comfortably fit.

0:21:27.440,0:21:34.970
Yeah, we can get one more in there and

0:21:34.970,0:21:37.730
that’s how I measure my wraps per inch

0:21:37.730,0:21:39.770
because that’ll give me a sampling along

0:21:39.770,0:21:42.920
the whole skein, not just- perhaps I spun

0:21:42.920,0:21:45.470
very thin at one end and not very thin

0:21:45.470,0:21:49.760
at the other because I’m not a

0:21:49.760,0:21:52.850
controlled spinner. Am I crooked? You know,

0:21:52.850,0:21:53.750
who cares.

0:21:53.750,0:22:04.340
Hi, it is Saturday March 21st and it sure

0:22:04.340,0:22:09.650
has been a week, hasn’t it? If you’re

0:22:09.650,0:22:12.470
watching this in the future, this is the

0:22:12.470,0:22:16.040
first week of real serious coronavirus

0:22:16.040,0:22:23.690
lockdown stuff here in the US. Just as an

0:22:23.690,0:22:27.290
update for all of you, I do work in a job

0:22:27.290,0:22:29.810
that I can work from home and we got to

0:22:29.810,0:22:32.380
go ahead to work at home full-time

0:22:32.380,0:22:37.100
Tuesday of this week. I was out with a

0:22:37.100,0:22:38.960
sinus infection because my body has

0:22:38.960,0:22:42.320
great timing, but it is just a sinus

0:22:42.320,0:22:44.630
infection. Got checked out by Doc. I’m on

0:22:44.630,0:22:48.580
antibiotics. We’re all good.

0:22:48.580,0:22:56.660
So yeah, it’s sort of quarantine times

0:22:56.660,0:23:00.620
now, which in terms of these vlogs and

0:23:00.620,0:23:05.510
the podcast means that, 1) I get an

0:23:05.510,0:23:07.730
extra hours sleep every morning even on

0:23:07.730,0:23:11.120
work days, which is great, because I don’t

0:23:11.120,0:23:14.720
have to get up early to get prepped and

0:23:14.720,0:23:17.960
ready to go. And also that means I’m

0:23:17.960,0:23:21.500
reclaiming two to three hours of commute

0:23:21.500,0:23:24.950
time every workday and I’m sorry if you

0:23:24.950,0:23:26.180
can hear my brother through the door.

0:23:26.180,0:23:28.179
He’s very loud

0:23:28.179,0:23:30.580
and I’m trying not to carry across the

0:23:30.580,0:23:39.639
house because we are all home. Yeah, so

0:23:39.639,0:23:43.809
that means, I think I’m going to put a

0:23:43.809,0:23:46.179
hold on the regular podcast for now

0:23:46.179,0:23:49.210
since I’m going to have the opportunity

0:23:49.210,0:23:52.029
to work more on the things that are in

0:23:52.029,0:23:53.559
this craft room that are difficult to

0:23:53.559,0:23:55.360
show on the podcast until they’re

0:23:55.360,0:24:00.009
finished. I’ll probably be- sorry,

0:24:00.009,0:24:01.840
I’m still a little congested. You can

0:24:01.840,0:24:05.559
probably hear that. I’ll probably film

0:24:05.559,0:24:10.179
like a knitting round up thing in my

0:24:10.179,0:24:12.730
room sometime this weekends just to

0:24:12.730,0:24:15.610
show you where I am with those hand

0:24:15.610,0:24:21.580
knitting projects, but yeah. I’m not gonna

0:24:21.580,0:24:23.769
go crazy and burn myself out here in the

0:24:23.769,0:24:26.200
craft room. There will be a lot of naps

0:24:26.200,0:24:28.210
in my future which I’m really looking

0:24:28.210,0:24:31.869
forward to and just generally taking it

0:24:31.869,0:24:34.899
easy. Consuming the media that I haven’t

0:24:34.899,0:24:37.480
had a chance to see, like all the

0:24:37.480,0:24:39.399
episodes of the new season of Clone Wars.

0:24:39.399,0:24:48.490
I just haven’t seen them yet. But yeah so

0:24:48.490,0:24:50.320
there’s gonna- I’m gonna go vlog style

0:24:50.320,0:24:56.289
for a while since that’s really gonna be

0:24:56.289,0:25:01.450
the- the thing to do at the moment that I

0:25:01.450,0:25:05.740
feel. Yeah. So let’s take you down off the

0:25:05.740,0:25:08.200
tripod and show you what’s been going on

0:25:08.200,0:25:13.240
in this craft room since the wedding.

0:25:13.240,0:25:16.690
Um oh speaking of the wedding, I know

0:25:16.690,0:25:18.639
people wanted to see what I made for the

0:25:18.639,0:25:22.990
wedding. I have to do laundry. So once

0:25:22.990,0:25:29.289
that’s done I’ll show you the the things

0:25:29.289,0:25:32.080
I made and talk about things that I

0:25:32.080,0:25:36.909
would change or whatever. I’ll give you

0:25:36.909,0:25:39.880
the rundown once everything’s washed.

0:25:39.880,0:25:43.390
So for now let’s see what’s going on in

0:25:43.390,0:25:47.789
the craft room. So starting from the

0:25:47.789,0:25:51.370
entrance to the craft room, I have

0:25:51.370,0:25:55.000
successfully frogged washed and re-caked

0:25:55.000,0:25:57.070
up the yarn from that sweater that I

0:25:57.070,0:26:00.700
never wear. So that is ready to go I’m

0:26:00.700,0:26:08.620
going to be doing do a machine knit yoke

0:26:08.620,0:26:12.370
sweater. This is a pattern by- let’s focus

0:26:12.370,0:26:13.419
on her name-

0:26:13.419,0:26:17.049
Susan Guagliumi, I believe is how you

0:26:17.049,0:26:19.870
pronounce that. If you go to her website

0:26:19.870,0:26:23.289
and sign up for her newsletter- refocus

0:26:23.289,0:26:27.250
camera- she gives you access to a bunch

0:26:27.250,0:26:31.270
of her machine knit patterns and techniques

0:26:31.270,0:26:36.100
and all sorts of stuff, including a blog

0:26:36.100,0:26:38.320
post about machine knit yoke sweaters and

0:26:38.320,0:26:41.620
she has a pretty basic machine knit yoke

0:26:41.620,0:26:45.390
sweater pattern that you can work from,

0:26:45.390,0:26:49.960
basically. I believe it was supposed to

0:26:49.960,0:26:52.950
come with a punch card for patterning.

0:26:52.950,0:26:57.130
The scan doesn’t have that, but I figured

0:26:57.130,0:26:59.049
I’ll just do it in plain stockinette to

0:26:59.049,0:27:03.190
get used to rehanging it because

0:27:03.190,0:27:07.179
there are- like, this is for a cardigan

0:27:07.179,0:27:11.980
actually, but like where you rehang the

0:27:11.980,0:27:15.039
yoke and when and how you overlap and

0:27:15.039,0:27:16.510
deal with seams and all that kind of

0:27:16.510,0:27:19.200
stuff. I figure it’s a good practice just

0:27:19.200,0:27:22.480
do it in stockinette, just change colors

0:27:22.480,0:27:24.880
on the yoke and probably the sleeve

0:27:24.880,0:27:27.549
cuffs because I’m not sure how much of

0:27:27.549,0:27:29.590
each of those kinds of yarn I have. I

0:27:29.590,0:27:32.320
know I have more of the black. This is

0:27:32.320,0:27:34.840
just knit picks stroll fingering, so I

0:27:34.840,0:27:37.210
know I have more of this, but I’d rather

0:27:37.210,0:27:39.039
not break into any new skeins if I don’t

0:27:39.039,0:27:43.059
have to. So and I do know I have more of

0:27:43.059,0:27:44.260
this, but it’s planned for another

0:27:44.260,0:27:46.330
project so I just kind of want to keep

0:27:46.330,0:27:51.179
this contained just keep the sweater

0:27:51.179,0:27:53.290
more or less

0:27:53.290,0:27:57.370
what I’ve got there. And then over here

0:27:57.370,0:28:01.660
we have some more results from my plying

0:28:01.660,0:28:09.340
party, just skeins and skeins. So they’re

0:28:09.340,0:28:11.950
just getting dumped in this tub here for

0:28:11.950,0:28:13.990
now. I suppose a craft I could mention

0:28:13.990,0:28:16.540
this is a sewing machine cover that I

0:28:16.540,0:28:18.540
made for a sewing machine- ooh

0:28:18.540,0:28:22.470
long time ago. Probably when I first

0:28:22.470,0:28:24.730
started the podcast or just before I

0:28:24.730,0:28:28.750
started the podcast actually. My singer

0:28:28.750,0:28:32.800
sewing machine has problems with it so

0:28:32.800,0:28:36.130
I’ve actually packed that away into this

0:28:36.130,0:28:38.860
carry case here with a note saying

0:28:38.860,0:28:43.350
what’s wrong with it so that hopefully

0:28:43.350,0:28:48.880
after the worst of- the worst of the

0:28:48.880,0:28:53.320
pandemic has- has passed and when we’re

0:28:53.320,0:28:56.980
on the road to societal recovery, I can

0:28:56.980,0:28:59.080
take that in somewhere hopefully and get

0:28:59.080,0:29:02.080
it fixed, but that meant that I wanted to

0:29:02.080,0:29:06.190
put this cover on this machine and I had

0:29:06.190,0:29:12.370
at some point because of the weird bed

0:29:12.370,0:29:15.070
thing I made I had tacked up this extra

0:29:15.070,0:29:20.190
hem bit so that it was the height of

0:29:20.190,0:29:26.260
this on the other machine, more or less.

0:29:26.260,0:29:30.630
So I just let out that seam on this and

0:29:30.630,0:29:32.890
pinked all the seams inside this thing

0:29:32.890,0:29:38.020
because they were janky AF. This is one

0:29:38.020,0:29:41.980
of the- this is an early sewing project I

0:29:41.980,0:29:43.990
pressed out all the seams and everything,

0:29:43.990,0:29:47.200
just you know to keep dust off of this

0:29:47.200,0:29:50.410
lovely machine. This is the actual cover

0:29:50.410,0:29:53.620
for it, but I’m at this point I’m just

0:29:53.620,0:29:55.120
leaving this machine plugged in all the

0:29:55.120,0:29:57.070
time so I don’t want to unplug it replug

0:29:57.070,0:30:01.720
it in to take that on and off. This has

0:30:01.720,0:30:05.950
been my focus. Yeah we can see it because

0:30:05.950,0:30:07.030
light.

0:30:07.030,0:30:11.920
This is the Redford sweater by Julie

0:30:11.920,0:30:17.020
Hoover that I’m doing a video on- doing a

0:30:17.020,0:30:18.580
machine knit project from a hand

0:30:18.580,0:30:21.490
knitting pattern and I’m in tricky

0:30:21.490,0:30:24.220
seaming land. I’ll talk about this more

0:30:24.220,0:30:25.450
in the video but because of the

0:30:25.450,0:30:27.250
construction of this sweater- I’ll show

0:30:27.250,0:30:31.300
you the other side that’s finished- for

0:30:31.300,0:30:34.810
lots of seemed set in sleeve sweaters,

0:30:34.810,0:30:40.270
you would not do the side seam and so

0:30:40.270,0:30:42.760
you line up the end, the middle, the other

0:30:42.760,0:30:46.210
end, seam around the shoulder, and then

0:30:46.210,0:30:47.980
you would seem the sleeve and the side

0:30:47.980,0:30:49.960
seam together, but because of the

0:30:49.960,0:30:51.460
construction of this sweater,

0:30:51.460,0:30:54.340
there is a side panel. So you can’t do

0:30:54.340,0:30:59.440
that. So you have to full-on set in your

0:30:59.440,0:31:03.810
sleeve, which is kind of slow going

0:31:03.810,0:31:06.040
because I have to keep checking to make

0:31:06.040,0:31:12.330
sure it’s not horrendously pulling weird

0:31:12.330,0:31:16.930
and in some places like here at this

0:31:16.930,0:31:19.690
drawing there’s a lot of yarn to go

0:31:19.690,0:31:21.490
through, so you don’t want to make it too

0:31:21.490,0:31:23.140
bulky, but you also want to keep it

0:31:23.140,0:31:26.200
secure. Also you cannot pull on this yarn

0:31:26.200,0:31:28.840
very hard because it will snap. Ask me

0:31:28.840,0:31:32.860
how I know that. So I am working on that

0:31:32.860,0:31:36.340
and yarn chicken man. This is all the

0:31:36.340,0:31:39.040
yarn that I have left. I need to knit

0:31:39.040,0:31:44.920
cuffs and a collar still. I mean cuffs

0:31:44.920,0:31:47.590
can be short. I’m going to do the collar

0:31:47.590,0:31:51.310
first and then just whatever I have left

0:31:51.310,0:31:55.000
will end up in cuffs, basically. Because I

0:31:55.000,0:31:56.830
don’t really want to rip out my two

0:31:56.830,0:32:00.910
swatches because they will be extremely

0:32:00.910,0:32:03.820
useful if I use this yarn again in this

0:32:03.820,0:32:12.490
machine. So yeah. This is also a priority

0:32:12.490,0:32:15.250
just so I can get it off my list of

0:32:15.250,0:32:16.900
things to do. This is the last

0:32:16.900,0:32:20.230
long-sleeve shirt

0:32:20.230,0:32:22.510
that I need to do but it kind of got

0:32:22.510,0:32:25.390
pushed to the wayside because of this

0:32:25.390,0:32:32.049
project down here. You may have seen it

0:32:32.049,0:32:34.870
on my Instagram stories, but after my

0:32:34.870,0:32:36.280
sister’s wedding, we brought home her

0:32:36.280,0:32:38.559
bouquet and the roses immediately

0:32:38.559,0:32:43.870
started dying. So we are drying out her

0:32:43.870,0:32:49.720
bouquet for her so all of the important

0:32:49.720,0:32:52.330
flowers the roses, the thistles, the I

0:32:52.330,0:32:53.559
don’t know what they’re called but

0:32:53.559,0:32:55.960
they’re like red plumie things are all

0:32:55.960,0:32:58.510
in here these are packed with silica gel

0:32:58.510,0:33:01.470
sand to dry them out and being mummified

0:33:01.470,0:33:04.299
also my mom’s corsage and my dad’s

0:33:04.299,0:33:08.110
corsage are in here. So this is

0:33:08.110,0:33:10.240
full of silica gel. This is full of

0:33:10.240,0:33:11.980
silica gel. I put a couple of these guys

0:33:11.980,0:33:14.679
just on top to see what would happen

0:33:14.679,0:33:19.830
with them. Everything’s supposed to be

0:33:19.830,0:33:22.299
completely covered, but we ran out of

0:33:22.299,0:33:25.510
silica gel by this point because that is

0:33:25.510,0:33:32.350
also full of flowers and well herbs

0:33:32.350,0:33:34.900
mostly. It’s full of plants from her

0:33:34.900,0:33:38.710
bouquet. There were a lot of plants. So if

0:33:38.710,0:33:40.510
anybody is planning on drying out of

0:33:40.510,0:33:45.100
bouquet, I used eight bags of silica gel

0:33:45.100,0:33:48.760
sand plus these silica gel beads as a

0:33:48.760,0:33:53.679
base layer that my dad just had and we

0:33:53.679,0:33:55.840
did not even get her full bouquet in

0:33:55.840,0:33:58.270
there. At the end of it I took a

0:33:58.270,0:34:00.460
picture of the foliage that was left and

0:34:00.460,0:34:02.860
was like, are you good if this goes in compost?

0:34:02.860,0:34:11.169
Cuz uh eight bags later. Yeah, so those

0:34:11.169,0:34:19.179
just need to stay covered for another

0:34:19.179,0:34:22.270
few days. It says about a week so like

0:34:22.270,0:34:23.800
these guys will be done in about a week,

0:34:23.800,0:34:25.179
but I think I’m just going to leave them

0:34:25.179,0:34:27.850
in there for another week deal with it

0:34:27.850,0:34:32.590
next weekend and see what’s what.

0:34:32.590,0:34:33.590
But yeah I wanted

0:34:33.590,0:34:36.190
to see if these guys would also crispify

0:34:36.190,0:34:39.140
because just of being enclosed in a

0:34:39.140,0:34:43.700
space with such a dry environment, but

0:34:43.700,0:34:45.560
that’s really what I was focused on this

0:34:45.560,0:34:47.960
week so that I could get that done for

0:34:47.960,0:34:53.540
Gabby. This weaving project is basically

0:34:53.540,0:34:56.570
going to look the same until it’s done

0:34:56.570,0:35:00.590
so get a good look now I’ll update you

0:35:00.590,0:35:03.260
when I’m closer to being done or when

0:35:03.260,0:35:06.010
I’m ready to cut it off but it’s a

0:35:06.010,0:35:14.600
simple houndstooth, so two of color a, two

0:35:14.600,0:35:18.080
of color B on the warp and the same on

0:35:18.080,0:35:23.020
the weft. Kind of doing it low contrast. I

0:35:23.020,0:35:28.490
think the camera is making it a higher

0:35:28.490,0:35:33.830
contrast than it is just because of how

0:35:33.830,0:35:36.490
much light is in the room right now ,but

0:35:36.490,0:35:38.480
that’s probably the last you’ll see of

0:35:38.480,0:35:40.810
that for a while.

0:35:40.810,0:37:03.490
[Music]

0:37:03.490,0:37:09.420
Oh what day is today?

0:37:09.420,0:37:14.110
Hello, it’s Saturday March 28th and I

0:37:14.110,0:37:19.450
think I’m gonna round up this vlog this

0:37:19.450,0:37:21.850
morning- this afternoon. It’s almost 2

0:37:21.850,0:37:28.090
o’clock with just kind of catching you

0:37:28.090,0:37:31.960
guys up on my works in progress and

0:37:31.960,0:37:34.030
finished objects. I think I’m gonna

0:37:34.030,0:37:36.430
release this vlog style episode as a

0:37:36.430,0:37:38.140
regular episode, so there will be show

0:37:38.140,0:37:41.470
notes over at freakishlemon.com and all

0:37:41.470,0:37:45.850
the things that I usually say, but I

0:37:45.850,0:37:47.290
don’t think I’m gonna go into as much

0:37:47.290,0:37:50.170
detail for each item just because this

0:37:50.170,0:37:52.780
is kind of vlog style we don’t want me to

0:37:52.780,0:37:54.700
ramble on for another 45 minutes about

0:37:54.700,0:37:59.290
everything that I’ve made. Or at least I

0:37:59.290,0:38:00.610
don’t want to do that cuz that would not

0:38:00.610,0:38:04.780
be fun to edit at the end of a vlog

0:38:04.780,0:38:09.340
style video. So we are sitting in a

0:38:09.340,0:38:12.040
finished object. I’ve got a hat because I

0:38:12.040,0:38:13.300
don’t know what the hair is doing and

0:38:13.300,0:38:15.070
I’m not worrying about it and this

0:38:15.070,0:38:17.800
backlighting might be an issue later, but

0:38:17.800,0:38:20.320
we’re gonna pretend that it’s not for

0:38:20.320,0:38:22.690
the time being. So this is my Redford

0:38:22.690,0:38:24.580
sweater. It’s a pattern by Julie Hoover. I

0:38:24.580,0:38:27.340
converted it to knitting on the machine

0:38:27.340,0:38:29.410
except for the collar and the cuffs and

0:38:29.410,0:38:30.970
there will be a separate video about it

0:38:30.970,0:38:31.869
later.

0:38:31.869,0:38:34.119
All in all I’m super happy about it. I

0:38:34.119,0:38:36.430
did have to play yarn chicken because of

0:38:36.430,0:38:39.880
my initial 4 swatches, but now I know

0:38:39.880,0:38:43.180
that five skeins of Green Mountain

0:38:43.180,0:38:47.500
Spinnery sock art Lana is enough for a

0:38:47.500,0:38:48.850
sweater, if I don’t have to make more

0:38:48.850,0:38:55.660
than two swatches. That’s the key. So

0:38:55.660,0:38:58.170
there’s that. And then I also promised

0:38:58.170,0:39:02.200
showing you my finished wedding outfit

0:39:02.200,0:39:04.420
for Gabby’s wedding. I didn’t bother

0:39:04.420,0:39:06.430
grabbing the shoes out. They’re black

0:39:06.430,0:39:09.130
leather boots. These are the trousers

0:39:09.130,0:39:12.700
that I already had, which are covered in

0:39:12.700,0:39:14.920
fluff,

0:39:14.920,0:39:19.430
that I kind of based the outfit around

0:39:19.430,0:39:20.690
because I knew I was going to wear these

0:39:20.690,0:39:22.700
trousers. They’re kind of charcoal gray.

0:39:22.700,0:39:29.510
They’re a wool twill trouser. That’s

0:39:29.510,0:39:33.350
probably more accurate. It’s this-

0:39:33.350,0:39:35.200
backlighting is messing with the

0:39:35.200,0:39:40.130
lighting, but I made to go with it this

0:39:40.130,0:39:43.040
shirt. This is the simplicity shirt.

0:39:43.040,0:39:46.130
Details will be in the show notes. The

0:39:46.130,0:39:49.310
only difference is that I don’t do the

0:39:49.310,0:39:52.280
top button in the collar because I never

0:39:52.280,0:39:56.030
button it, so why bother why wasting a

0:39:56.030,0:40:00.400
button? And I also opted to do two small

0:40:00.400,0:40:03.500
button holes in the cuff sides for

0:40:03.500,0:40:06.350
cufflinks since I also, most of the time,

0:40:06.350,0:40:08.560
roll up my sleeves.

0:40:08.560,0:40:12.500
Why put buttons in my sleeve cuffs? Just

0:40:12.500,0:40:14.300
put buttonholes and I’ll use cufflinks

0:40:14.300,0:40:18.550
because it was a formal occasion, so

0:40:18.550,0:40:25.940
hooray. Um this is just- I think it’s Kona

0:40:25.940,0:40:29.900
cotton. I got it at Jo-Ann’s. This was

0:40:29.900,0:40:32.210
one of Gabby’s wedding colors. Hoo,

0:40:32.210,0:40:34.820
interrupted by my Home Depot dirt

0:40:34.820,0:40:38.690
delivery cuz I got to get seed starting

0:40:38.690,0:40:46.130
for the garden now-ish. Um yes so the

0:40:46.130,0:40:47.480
main piece that I was really working on

0:40:47.480,0:40:49.820
for Gabby’s wedding is this vest.

0:40:49.820,0:40:52.580
Um this is in her wedding colors with a

0:40:52.580,0:40:57.020
light grey, this dark red, and black. Not

0:40:57.020,0:40:59.680
that the black was visible. It’s a lining.

0:40:59.680,0:41:04.030
And I’ve got some video footage of

0:41:04.030,0:41:07.310
making these two items, so I might just

0:41:07.310,0:41:11.360
put that in at the end. I decided while

0:41:11.360,0:41:12.920
filming these items I wasn’t going to do

0:41:12.920,0:41:14.930
separate project videos on them because

0:41:14.930,0:41:21.110
it was just a lot. Um but yes. It’s got

0:41:21.110,0:41:24.490
these fake pearl buttons

0:41:24.490,0:41:27.530
there’s the bottom of the vest there’s

0:41:27.530,0:41:30.070
no pockets in this vest. This is the only

0:41:30.070,0:41:35.510
real regret I have for this vest. Um, just

0:41:35.510,0:41:37.250
a couple of other tweaks that I would

0:41:37.250,0:41:40.580
change is I would change this seam to be

0:41:40.580,0:41:43.100
more here because that comes down a

0:41:43.100,0:41:46.280
little low on me, so I’m gonna make a

0:41:46.280,0:41:48.410
note on my pattern for that and also

0:41:48.410,0:41:54.200
this side seam is a little too curved so

0:41:54.200,0:41:56.450
I would just extend this seam line down

0:41:56.450,0:41:59.420
here so it was more of a straight side

0:41:59.420,0:42:02.720
seam. I did have a considerable fit

0:42:02.720,0:42:05.060
issues with this pattern because this is

0:42:05.060,0:42:07.850
the medium, which fit well from the

0:42:07.850,0:42:12.230
shoulders to about my bust and then it

0:42:12.230,0:42:15.590
was way too small. It was Captain America,

0:42:15.590,0:42:19.490
Dorito shaped. I had to- I ended up- I

0:42:19.490,0:42:23.030
did end up changing these darts. There’s

0:42:23.030,0:42:27.980
one dart- there’s one dart in the pattern.

0:42:27.980,0:42:32.720
There’s two darts in my version. I did

0:42:32.720,0:42:35.030
have to widen the first dart and then

0:42:35.030,0:42:37.310
the second dart was kind of more for

0:42:37.310,0:42:44.030
shaping just because human bodies are

0:42:44.030,0:42:49.610
not nice even rectangles, but I think I

0:42:49.610,0:42:51.560
ultimately ended up adding about six

0:42:51.560,0:42:57.040
inches at the widest part of the vest,

0:42:57.040,0:43:00.590
which is a lot to add, but I think if I

0:43:00.590,0:43:02.330
went a size up I would have had a lot

0:43:02.330,0:43:05.300
more fit issues at the top and it would

0:43:05.300,0:43:08.690
have been a nightmare. So this took me a

0:43:08.690,0:43:13.520
while, but everybody at the wedding was

0:43:13.520,0:43:15.830
very impressed. I was quite pleased with

0:43:15.830,0:43:19.580
that. Gabby’s maid of honor

0:43:19.580,0:43:23.600
Kari was apparently my- my hype man for

0:43:23.600,0:43:25.070
the evening telling everybody that I

0:43:25.070,0:43:29.510
made a my shirt and my vest so that they

0:43:29.510,0:43:32.450
would call me over and I could talk

0:43:32.450,0:43:34.670
about sewing things with them. It was

0:43:34.670,0:43:37.610
very strange, but um

0:43:37.610,0:43:42.590
pretty darn cool. So I think now that the

0:43:42.590,0:43:44.710
wedding’s over and done with I may add

0:43:44.710,0:43:48.200
watch pockets into that vest once I

0:43:48.200,0:43:50.990
learned how to do welt pockets. Because I

0:43:50.990,0:43:52.700
do have pocket watches that I want to be

0:43:52.700,0:43:56.780
able to wear with my vests. There were no

0:43:56.780,0:43:58.250
pockets in the original pattern. It was

0:43:58.250,0:44:02.030
just like a fake welt piece. So there’s

0:44:02.030,0:44:04.880
like a placement to put a pocket, but I’d

0:44:04.880,0:44:06.080
have to learn how to do welt pockets.

0:44:06.080,0:44:08.570
Which I think I will do for the next

0:44:08.570,0:44:11.150
vest that I make I do have plans for a

0:44:11.150,0:44:14.510
black linen one, kind of more everyday

0:44:14.510,0:44:17.450
wear type of vest.

0:44:17.450,0:44:26.060
I finished plying everything from the

0:44:26.060,0:44:27.410
big wheel. So I’m not going to give you

0:44:27.410,0:44:30.980
huge amounts of details just cuz it’ll

0:44:30.980,0:44:34.870
take forever, but I wanted to show you

0:44:34.870,0:44:38.210
kind of what the cumulation of my plying

0:44:38.210,0:44:42.860
party bobbin extravaganza actually looks

0:44:42.860,0:44:48.560
like because it’s a bit absurd. So this

0:44:48.560,0:44:50.210
is a no particular order because it’s

0:44:50.210,0:44:52.490
whatever ended up in the box.

0:44:52.490,0:44:54.380
This one just happens to be the last one

0:44:54.380,0:44:57.140
because this was still- it’s still a

0:44:57.140,0:45:01.610
little bit damp. This is- did I throw the

0:45:01.610,0:45:06.950
tag in here? Yes, this is Mad Color Fiber Arts

0:45:06.950,0:45:09.440
in Life is Short and You Are Hot with a

0:45:09.440,0:45:14.780
fractal ply. I have no numbers for this.

0:45:14.780,0:45:18.620
It’s a two-ply and it’s lovely and it’s

0:45:18.620,0:45:21.080
still a bit wet, so I’ll just spread that

0:45:21.080,0:45:25.120
out over there.

0:45:25.120,0:45:27.320
Actually before I start taking all of

0:45:27.320,0:45:29.960
these out, let me show you. This is a

0:45:29.960,0:45:32.860
storage cube. It’s your standard Target

0:45:32.860,0:45:36.940
storage cube. I think they’re 11 by 11

0:45:36.940,0:45:44.960
typically and it’s nearly full. So we’ve

0:45:44.960,0:45:49.550
got this one. We’ve got this one. This is

0:45:49.550,0:45:51.400
two different fibers. One

0:45:51.400,0:45:55.000
a Falkland Merino that I got out of a

0:45:55.000,0:45:57.520
Gnome Acres destash way back when that I

0:45:57.520,0:46:01.380
hand dyed myself and the other is

0:46:01.380,0:46:04.539
somebody else’s destash. It’s- I think

0:46:04.539,0:46:08.230
it’s Phoenix Fiber Co, but it’s a light

0:46:08.230,0:46:13.359
blues. Focus on the way yarn, please. One

0:46:13.359,0:46:15.400
ply has a lot of silk content and the

0:46:15.400,0:46:18.520
other has none, so I wanted to see what

0:46:18.520,0:46:20.279
kind of weird drapiness that would do.

0:46:20.279,0:46:26.710
And then the falkland hand dyed by me

0:46:26.710,0:46:31.839
had a lot of extra so I just plied it

0:46:31.839,0:46:38.049
back on itself. This is the mystery fiber

0:46:38.049,0:46:40.000
that I found in my stash going through

0:46:40.000,0:46:43.630
my stash. It’s Greenwood Fiberworks. The

0:46:43.630,0:46:48.190
colorway is mallard, as in the duck. This

0:46:48.190,0:46:52.750
was also a fractal ply and it’s super

0:46:52.750,0:46:54.609
sparkly. I don’t know if you can tell on

0:46:54.609,0:46:59.559
camera, but it is very sparkly. What else?

0:46:59.559,0:47:02.380
Oh, I have a ton of Classy Squid because

0:47:02.380,0:47:05.020
I love Classy Squid. This is a cuttlefish,

0:47:05.020,0:47:06.700
which I may have shown on the podcast

0:47:06.700,0:47:08.589
before, but it was part of my plying

0:47:08.589,0:47:13.869
party. This is the Raven king, which is

0:47:13.869,0:47:15.460
not gonna show up great on camera

0:47:15.460,0:47:18.599
because of my backlighting, but it’s

0:47:18.599,0:47:27.400
black, brown, purple, green, and blue. Here

0:47:27.400,0:47:31.529
we go. That’s a little better.

0:47:31.529,0:47:36.099
Another Classy Squid. This is Quoth. One

0:47:36.099,0:47:38.349
ply is version one and one ply is

0:47:38.349,0:47:41.770
version two. One of the versions

0:47:41.770,0:47:45.190
has a lot more of the like mulberry silk

0:47:45.190,0:47:48.460
and those types of add-ins. The other one

0:47:48.460,0:47:53.410
is mostly just wool- different blends of

0:47:53.410,0:48:00.760
wool. Any more Classy Squids? No, I have a

0:48:00.760,0:48:04.519
series of

0:48:04.519,0:48:09.140
self blended fibers that I did the

0:48:09.140,0:48:12.999
singles on my Electric Eel Nano wheel.

0:48:12.999,0:48:17.869
There is House Organa, which is a blend

0:48:17.869,0:48:19.910
of stuff that I don’t recall off the top

0:48:19.910,0:48:25.539
of my head, but it’s brown, white, and blue.

0:48:25.539,0:48:30.109
There is the 501st based off of the

0:48:30.109,0:48:34.640
colors of the 501st Legion in the Clone

0:48:34.640,0:48:37.549
Wars TV show because they paint blue

0:48:37.549,0:48:41.690
things on their armor. And then just a

0:48:41.690,0:48:46.640
basic gray and yellow. I think I had made

0:48:46.640,0:48:48.019
these into rolags?

0:48:48.019,0:48:55.160
I don’t remember. Um, it’s just spare

0:48:55.160,0:48:59.779
fiber I had in my blending fiber bucket

0:48:59.779,0:49:01.549
and none of that is like necessarily

0:49:01.549,0:49:05.150
labeled except to mostly what the fiber

0:49:05.150,0:49:08.839
content is. It’s just a bunch of stuff

0:49:08.839,0:49:13.420
that’s for blending and then I finished

0:49:13.420,0:49:17.450
the last of my brown Cormo sweater

0:49:17.450,0:49:21.859
spin. These two skeins were singles at

0:49:21.859,0:49:28.599
the very start of- probably two years ago-

0:49:28.599,0:49:32.440
this round of filling up all the bobbins.

0:49:32.440,0:49:36.680
So that is a ton of yarn that I plied

0:49:36.680,0:49:47.690
in the past month. So I have clear

0:49:47.690,0:49:51.859
bobbins at this point. I have a new

0:49:51.859,0:49:55.789
bobbin on my wheel with a Loop fiber

0:49:55.789,0:50:06.489
bump started and I have the Gotland and

0:50:06.489,0:50:09.980
Perendale blend I think it is on my

0:50:09.980,0:50:11.539
Electric Eel Nano but that’s just a

0:50:11.539,0:50:13.609
light gray and super boring and I just

0:50:13.609,0:50:16.009
started the Loop bump this morning, so it’s

0:50:16.009,0:50:17.539
like this much fiber on

0:50:17.539,0:50:23.769
the bobbin- is the word I’m looking for.

0:50:23.769,0:50:26.349
All right so then just a quick check in

0:50:26.349,0:50:32.269
with my hand knitting projects. This is

0:50:32.269,0:50:33.649
the City Limits

0:50:33.649,0:50:37.429
pullover by Samantha Guerin designs where

0:50:37.429,0:50:40.639
I have altered the ribbing a bit to make

0:50:40.639,0:50:43.609
it a shorter ribbing. That’s how far I’ve

0:50:43.609,0:50:45.979
gotten. I last showed it to you at this

0:50:45.979,0:50:51.189
point and I’ve done some stockinette.

0:50:51.189,0:51:00.319
Super exciting. Yeah this one’s not uh in

0:51:00.319,0:51:02.479
heavy rotation at this point because the

0:51:02.479,0:51:09.319
deadline for this is October, so that’s

0:51:09.319,0:51:12.889
not a huge concern. I have put some time

0:51:12.889,0:51:16.099
in on my cozy memories blanket because

0:51:16.099,0:51:19.279
due to global pandemic, I’ve been working

0:51:19.279,0:51:20.479
from home, which means a lot of

0:51:20.479,0:51:24.079
conference calls where nobody can see me

0:51:24.079,0:51:31.969
knitting on things. So okay so I’ve got a

0:51:31.969,0:51:34.759
couple of squares down this end of

0:51:34.759,0:51:37.729
things and then I’ve got a couple of

0:51:37.729,0:51:41.149
squares up here. Then I’ve got a couple

0:51:41.149,0:51:50.599
of squares up here. I think once I get

0:51:50.599,0:51:53.359
everything stair-stepped properly then I

0:51:53.359,0:51:56.119
will take note in my tracker and find

0:51:56.119,0:51:59.630
out what percentage I’m at with this

0:51:59.630,0:52:07.159
blanket. I’ve also been kind of switching

0:52:07.159,0:52:13.630
between that blanket and this scrap

0:52:13.630,0:52:23.869
pinwheel squares. I did finish this

0:52:23.869,0:52:27.249
one since last you saw this project.

0:52:27.249,0:52:29.719
Those ends need to be woven in and I

0:52:29.719,0:52:31.310
don’t remember if you saw this one, but

0:52:31.310,0:52:35.110
this one’s also finished. So I have four

0:52:35.110,0:52:37.610
squares with completed knitting.

0:52:37.610,0:52:43.940
I need eight total squares to make seat

0:52:43.940,0:52:50.210
covers for my car. I’m holding the yarn

0:52:50.210,0:52:52.610
double, but I’m using the same numbers

0:52:52.610,0:53:08.030
from the pattern by Mina Philipp. This one

0:53:08.030,0:53:10.820
I’ve really been trying to get focused

0:53:10.820,0:53:15.230
on. This is the Rice Fields Shawl by- I

0:53:15.230,0:53:16.970
don’t remember who it’s by. It’ll be in

0:53:16.970,0:53:20.950
the show notes. I’m in the second-to-last

0:53:20.950,0:53:30.830
section. So it’s two color brioche, sort

0:53:30.830,0:53:33.680
of semicircular shawl. Where’s my little

0:53:33.680,0:53:38.810
progress keeper? We last checked in at

0:53:38.810,0:53:47.540
about there. So now I’m in this section

0:53:47.540,0:53:50.270
and the trouble with this shawl is that

0:53:50.270,0:53:53.210
each new section you do, you double the

0:53:53.210,0:53:56.870
amount of stitches and there are more

0:53:56.870,0:53:58.870
rows to complete in two color brioche,

0:53:58.870,0:54:01.460
which I do in two passes because I’m not

0:54:01.460,0:54:03.170
going to bother to learn one pass two

0:54:03.170,0:54:05.740
color brioche this far into this shawl.

0:54:05.740,0:54:10.610
So I have one more section of this

0:54:10.610,0:54:13.370
Winnie Sanderson colorway and then

0:54:13.370,0:54:16.220
one last section of Spellbook which is

0:54:16.220,0:54:20.990
the green and then I’ll be done.

0:54:20.990,0:54:24.500
I think I’ll be, whoops, super excited

0:54:24.500,0:54:26.180
to have this off the needles to wear

0:54:26.180,0:54:31.400
around. I’m just at Slog City because it

0:54:31.400,0:54:34.550
takes so long to knit this many stitches.

0:54:34.550,0:54:36.470
I don’t know how many stitches it is, but

0:54:36.470,0:54:47.990
it is a lot of stitches.

0:54:47.990,0:54:58.710
And I’m getting tangled. I haven’t

0:54:58.710,0:55:08.549
worked on that sock. Um, I did a teeny bit

0:55:08.549,0:55:12.450
of spinning on these weird unicorn

0:55:12.450,0:55:17.430
rolags I have that I made myself, but I

0:55:17.430,0:55:20.780
haven’t done a ton of spinning on it. I

0:55:20.780,0:55:23.520
forgot I even had it. It was buried in

0:55:23.520,0:55:26.700
the bottom of my WIPs basket, so I’m

0:55:26.700,0:55:29.720
going to try to put some time in on that

0:55:29.720,0:55:40.770
in the coming weeks. And then my crochet

0:55:40.770,0:55:44.549
granny square blanket just around and

0:55:44.549,0:55:47.670
around. Um is there progress keeper on

0:55:47.670,0:55:58.430
this somewhere? If there was, there

0:55:58.430,0:56:03.150
doesn’t seem to be one now. Alright but

0:56:03.150,0:56:05.520
I’ve started in on the second ball of

0:56:05.520,0:56:14.000
Noro Ito and we’ll see where we get

0:56:14.000,0:56:17.160
by the time I finished the third one. I may

0:56:17.160,0:56:19.740
need another one or two because the as

0:56:19.740,0:56:21.720
it gets bigger it’s going to eat up more

0:56:21.720,0:56:29.280
and more yarn but I will contact one of

0:56:29.280,0:56:31.440
my local yarn stores about that if and

0:56:31.440,0:56:36.780
when that time comes. Because in global

0:56:36.780,0:56:38.839
pandemic land, all the yarn stores are

0:56:38.839,0:56:41.430
basically closed to the public.

0:56:41.430,0:56:45.890
Deliveries only. Some stores are doing

0:56:45.890,0:56:48.420
shopping by appointment, so there’s only

0:56:48.420,0:56:51.780
you and the shop owner in the store at

0:56:51.780,0:56:54.930
the same time to practice social

0:56:54.930,0:56:56.720
distancing

0:56:56.720,0:57:01.490
and all that good stuff.

0:57:01.490,0:57:04.350
So let’s get all this back into this

0:57:04.350,0:57:08.610
basket and let’s talk a little bit

0:57:08.610,0:57:13.080
about other stuff because that’s kind of

0:57:13.080,0:57:15.660
the stuff that we’re all clamoring for

0:57:15.660,0:57:21.810
at the moment here because we are- just

0:57:21.810,0:57:26.580
kicking the camera- pretty much a

0:57:26.580,0:57:28.800
shelter-in-place. At least in Connecticut,

0:57:28.800,0:57:35.640
it’s shelter-in-place. Yeah so I’m not

0:57:35.640,0:57:40.020
watching anything. I’m in a cycle where

0:57:40.020,0:57:43.650
my brain only wants audio things and no

0:57:43.650,0:57:46.380
video things, which is really annoying

0:57:46.380,0:57:48.030
because I just got caught up on YouTube

0:57:48.030,0:57:52.130
stuff last week and now my brain’s like

0:57:52.130,0:57:56.850
‘No. Video is not for you.

0:57:56.850,0:58:01.710
Goodbye.’ So I’m watching nothing, but I’m

0:58:01.710,0:58:04.350
listening to a ton. Stuff I am listening

0:58:04.350,0:58:10.080
to. I started listening to the Rusty

0:58:10.080,0:58:12.810
Quill Gaming podcast. I’ve listened to

0:58:12.810,0:58:17.010
The Magnus Archives for a long time. I

0:58:17.010,0:58:19.530
think I started just after season 1,

0:58:19.530,0:58:22.710
beginning of season 2? But they’ve

0:58:22.710,0:58:30.600
recently kind of exploded uh with the

0:58:30.600,0:58:33.300
end of season 4. The fanbase just kind of

0:58:33.300,0:58:34.950
blew up overnight and suddenly my entire

0:58:34.950,0:58:36.690
tumblr feed was listening to The Magnus

0:58:36.690,0:58:40.020
Archives. It was super weird and then a

0:58:40.020,0:58:42.060
few of them were doing what I normally

0:58:42.060,0:58:44.670
do but hadn’t, which is listen to all

0:58:44.670,0:58:46.920
the podcasts on that network. So I

0:58:46.920,0:58:49.020
started with Rusty Quill Gaming. It’s an

0:58:49.020,0:58:55.890
actual play RPG podcast. Most people are

0:58:55.890,0:58:58.650
familiar with actual play podcast

0:58:58.650,0:59:01.050
Critical Role. It’s really good

0:59:01.050,0:59:03.810
they’re using Pathfinder as a system

0:59:03.810,0:59:09.780
because it was pre-D&D 5e,

0:59:09.780,0:59:12.270
so it’s really funny listening to

0:59:12.270,0:59:15.300
current episodes cuz there a couple of

0:59:15.300,0:59:17.700
them who play 5e in other games are

0:59:17.700,0:59:20.840
just like 5e handles this better, like,

0:59:20.840,0:59:23.520
but they started with Pathfinder back in

0:59:23.520,0:59:31.530
2015, so yeah. And it’s it’s coming up on

0:59:31.530,0:59:34.260
endgame for that podcast, but it’s really

0:59:34.260,0:59:37.860
very good. They handle a lot of things

0:59:37.860,0:59:40.280
really well and there’s a lot of fun

0:59:40.280,0:59:43.140
specials where they do shorter one-off

0:59:43.140,0:59:48.230
games with special guests. Also from

0:59:48.230,0:59:52.640
Rusty Quill is the podcast Stellar Firma,

0:59:52.640,0:59:55.140
which sounds weird in my accent because

0:59:55.140,0:59:59.900
it rhymes if you’re British, but it’s a

0:59:59.900,1:00:05.300
comedy sci-fi improv podcast about

1:00:05.300,1:00:13.830
designing planets basically? It’s really

1:00:13.830,1:00:16.020
funny and you should listen to it.

1:00:16.020,1:00:19.350
I re-listened to the entirety of The

1:00:19.350,1:00:21.450
Magnus Archives because everybody was

1:00:21.450,1:00:23.670
talking about The Magnus Archives and I

1:00:23.670,1:00:25.380
couldn’t remember who some of the

1:00:25.380,1:00:30.930
characters were? I had forgotten that Mike

1:00:30.930,1:00:33.630
Crew existed and was very confused why

1:00:33.630,1:00:37.650
everybody was giving Johnny Sims

1:00:37.650,1:00:39.960
shit on Twitter for naming all his

1:00:39.960,1:00:42.290
characters Michael. I could only remember

1:00:42.290,1:00:47.580
The Spiral!Michael. This is awkward.

1:00:47.580,1:00:49.920
I’ve forgotten entire swathes of

1:00:49.920,1:00:54.110
characters so I re-listened to that,

1:00:54.110,1:00:56.910
which it’s a lot more coherent when you

1:00:56.910,1:01:01.770
listen to it all in one go. Probably why

1:01:01.770,1:01:06.480
I forgot whole characters because, you

1:01:06.480,1:01:08.220
know, when you’re listening to it in real

1:01:08.220,1:01:13.200
time some of those breaks kind of- you

1:01:13.200,1:01:18.830
forget stuff. I’m now working through

1:01:18.830,1:01:23.579
Outliers, which is a podcast

1:01:23.579,1:01:26.800
that they do in association with

1:01:26.800,1:01:27.979
1:01:27.979,1:01:32.400
Historic Royal Palaces. Historic

1:01:32.400,1:01:36.920
Royal Palaces provides research and

1:01:36.920,1:01:40.910
actual historical information for

1:01:40.910,1:01:44.569
palaces and people at famous and

1:01:44.569,1:01:47.249
non-famous people who lived in those

1:01:47.249,1:01:50.039
palaces. And Outliers is a series of

1:01:50.039,1:01:56.369
short stories about people involved with

1:01:56.369,1:02:00.029
historical events in those palaces, not

1:02:00.029,1:02:01.920
necessarily people you will have heard

1:02:01.920,1:02:11.940
of, but interesting perspectives. There

1:02:11.940,1:02:13.440
are, you know, there are some fictional

1:02:13.440,1:02:16.680
liberties taken because of gaps in our

1:02:16.680,1:02:19.709
historical knowledge, but it’s really

1:02:19.709,1:02:23.099
good and it’s structured in such a way

1:02:23.099,1:02:25.440
that you get a story in one episode and

1:02:25.440,1:02:26.969
in the next episode

1:02:26.969,1:02:30.930
Alex the CEO interviews the writer of that

1:02:30.930,1:02:35.160
story and- and how they’d- why they

1:02:35.160,1:02:37.109
decided to do that story, and- and how

1:02:37.109,1:02:39.299
they filled in any gaps or how they came

1:02:39.299,1:02:41.999
about to the story that they chose, which

1:02:41.999,1:02:50.640
is really cool. And then yes. And then I

1:02:50.640,1:02:53.819
started the- The McIlraith

1:02:53.819,1:02:59.489
Statements which is another supernatural

1:02:59.489,1:03:04.949
ghost-y podcast. The protagonist of whom

1:03:04.949,1:03:07.410
is a Scottish woman named Sarah who can

1:03:07.410,1:03:13.709
see ghosts. I enjoy spooky ghost podcasts

1:03:13.709,1:03:18.180
sometimes. I started listening to Hearty

1:03:18.180,1:03:25.650
Dice Friends. One of the hosts Grant Howitt

1:03:25.650,1:03:28.499
has been a guest on Rusty Quill

1:03:28.499,1:03:31.259
Gaming a bunch of times because he

1:03:31.259,1:03:35.549
designs role-playing games and he’s

1:03:35.549,1:03:37.019
hysterical, so I

1:03:37.019,1:03:39.630
decided to listen to his podcast with

1:03:39.630,1:03:43.169
his friend Chris where they answer RPG

1:03:43.169,1:03:45.359
questions you have whether you want them

1:03:45.359,1:03:52.140
to or not. It’s mostly tangents and very

1:03:52.140,1:03:55.880
few answers, which is delightful.

1:03:55.880,1:03:58.769
I’ve listened up through the current

1:03:58.769,1:04:06.749
episodes of Palimpsest, which is- it’s a

1:04:06.749,1:04:10.429
fiction podcast. It can be a bit spooky,

1:04:10.429,1:04:13.799
but it kind of depends on which season

1:04:13.799,1:04:17.339
you’re listening to. Each season is one

1:04:17.339,1:04:20.609
story and the stories don’t necessarily

1:04:20.609,1:04:22.380
have anything to do with each other but

1:04:22.380,1:04:25.130
it’s really good. The first season was a

1:04:25.130,1:04:28.019
woman who was seeing ghosts and solving

1:04:28.019,1:04:29.819
the mystery of these ghosts in her new

1:04:29.819,1:04:33.509
apartment. The second season was a woman

1:04:33.509,1:04:39.089
who was basically became the personal

1:04:39.089,1:04:46.049
servant of a Fae who was trapped in

1:04:46.049,1:04:49.380
like a- it was sort of like a human circus

1:04:49.380,1:04:52.109
type of deal, but this man had trapped

1:04:52.109,1:04:54.630
all of these Fae in this house and then

1:04:54.630,1:04:59.119
put them on display for exhibit. And how

1:04:59.119,1:05:01.739
badly things can go when you decide to

1:05:01.739,1:05:03.989
free them all and they have no rules

1:05:03.989,1:05:06.119
once they’re freed from that house, or

1:05:06.119,1:05:07.559
they have you know their particular

1:05:07.559,1:05:10.759
rules, but the human beings that they

1:05:10.759,1:05:13.259
decided to prey upon don’t necessarily

1:05:13.259,1:05:18.139
know those rules. The current season is a

1:05:18.139,1:05:22.499
former World War II code breaker who is

1:05:22.499,1:05:26.189
seeing dead people around London and

1:05:26.189,1:05:28.289
they keep telling her things and she’s

1:05:28.289,1:05:29.759
trying to figure out what’s going on. So

1:05:29.759,1:05:34.859
it’s pretty cool and then I started

1:05:34.859,1:05:36.329
Critical Role.

1:05:36.329,1:05:38.999
I say started loosely. I have listened to

1:05:38.999,1:05:43.670
two episodes these early episodes are

1:05:43.670,1:05:45.409
hmmm

1:05:45.409,1:05:47.930
rough.

1:05:47.930,1:05:54.050
I know I’ve been spoiled for audio

1:05:54.050,1:05:58.040
entertainment for real play or actual

1:05:58.040,1:06:01.490
play RPG podcasts. I used to listen to

1:06:01.490,1:06:03.770
Critical Hit back in the day which is

1:06:03.770,1:06:07.280
the Dungeons & Dragons actual play

1:06:07.280,1:06:09.650
podcast put on by the crew at Major

1:06:09.650,1:06:13.569
Spoilers .Com and they were very very

1:06:13.569,1:06:16.910
focused on audio quality. Each individual

1:06:16.910,1:06:27.619
person was mic’d and I remember very, you

1:06:27.619,1:06:30.530
know, very good editing so that there

1:06:30.530,1:06:32.720
wasn’t a lot of crosstalk. There wasn’t a

1:06:32.720,1:06:35.750
lot of just shuffling stuff around while

1:06:35.750,1:06:37.760
you figure out what to do.

1:06:37.760,1:06:42.010
And Rusty Quill Gaming is very good about

1:06:42.010,1:06:46.760
limiting crosstalk so that people aren’t

1:06:46.760,1:06:48.530
talking over each other. Each individual

1:06:48.530,1:06:55.000
person is mic’d. If they really mess up,

1:06:55.000,1:06:57.770
Alex will make them stop and repeat

1:06:57.770,1:07:02.079
themselves and they will edit it

1:07:02.079,1:07:05.990
together because there are bloopers at

1:07:05.990,1:07:07.430
the end of Rusty Quill Gaming where they

1:07:07.430,1:07:09.589
either really flubbed it or they just go

1:07:09.589,1:07:11.480
off on a tangent that has nothing to do

1:07:11.480,1:07:15.619
with what’s going on in the actual

1:07:15.619,1:07:19.549
gameplay. So these early episodes of

1:07:19.549,1:07:23.990
Critical Role are- it’s not clear whether

1:07:23.990,1:07:25.880
they’re individually mic’d or if there’s

1:07:25.880,1:07:28.640
just like group mics, but it’s clearly

1:07:28.640,1:07:32.569
just the audio ripped out of a live

1:07:32.569,1:07:37.329
stream, which is hard to pay attention to.

1:07:37.329,1:07:40.819
There was in the last episode when they

1:07:40.819,1:07:43.849
were buying wares from a merchant, there

1:07:43.849,1:07:45.440
was three different conversations

1:07:45.440,1:07:50.569
happening. And it was- it’s hard for me to

1:07:50.569,1:07:52.819
follow and also you don’t start at

1:07:52.819,1:07:55.040
episode zero. These characters are

1:07:55.040,1:07:58.549
already like mid-campaign so I’m hoping

1:07:58.549,1:08:00.840
that will improve,

1:08:00.840,1:08:09.090
but it’s not like top of my priority

1:08:09.090,1:08:12.680
to listen to right now because it’s

1:08:12.680,1:08:17.040
clearly not formatted for audio

1:08:17.040,1:08:19.860
specifically and that may just be the

1:08:19.860,1:08:21.060
case throughout the whole thing because

1:08:21.060,1:08:24.750
I know it is a video video thing that

1:08:24.750,1:08:28.830
they do. And then a couple of Lord of the

1:08:28.830,1:08:32.460
Rings podcasts. I started and caught up

1:08:32.460,1:08:34.110
with Speak Friend and Enter,

1:08:34.110,1:08:35.760
which is the Lord of the Rings deep dive

1:08:35.760,1:08:38.430
podcast. It’s put on by two sisters, one

1:08:38.430,1:08:41.700
of whom is a huge fan of the movies and

1:08:41.700,1:08:44.960
the other is a huge fan of the books. And

1:08:44.960,1:08:47.970
the sister who is obsessed with the

1:08:47.970,1:08:51.930
movies asks clarifying questions of the

1:08:51.930,1:08:56.670
sister who is a huge fan of the books. So

1:08:56.670,1:09:03.210
it’s stuff like, um like how long does it

1:09:03.210,1:09:04.290
take Gandalf-

1:09:04.290,1:09:06.510
how much time is there between Gandalf

1:09:06.510,1:09:12.030
leaving Frodo in the Shire and him

1:09:12.030,1:09:14.550
getting to Minas Tirith? And then

1:09:14.550,1:09:17.700
explanation of how distances in Middle

1:09:17.700,1:09:22.140
– Middle-earth works. And then I can’t

1:09:22.140,1:09:23.460
remember their names, the sister who does

1:09:23.460,1:09:27.000
the books also does these deep lore

1:09:27.000,1:09:30.000
episodes where she just tells you some

1:09:30.000,1:09:32.430
deep lore stories, like the creation of

1:09:32.430,1:09:36.900
middle-earth, who the Valar are, who the

1:09:36.900,1:09:40.290
Maiar are in kind of colloquial terms

1:09:40.290,1:09:43.260
and not you know the academic language

1:09:43.260,1:09:48.240
of Silmarillion, that kind of thing. and

1:09:48.240,1:09:51.480
then An Unexpected Podcast: Talking

1:09:51.480,1:09:55.860
Tolkien, which is two guys who are

1:09:55.860,1:09:58.860
teachers in their 30s who are basically

1:09:58.860,1:10:00.540
rereading the Lord of the Rings as a

1:10:00.540,1:10:03.420
book club and it that’s actually got me

1:10:03.420,1:10:09.080
into listening to Fellowship of the Ring

1:10:09.080,1:10:12.900
unabridged

1:10:12.900,1:10:15.720
for the first time. That narrator is ace.

1:10:15.720,1:10:17.520
I don’t have it written down. I’ll put it

1:10:17.520,1:10:21.800
in the show notes. I’ve listened to

1:10:21.800,1:10:24.860
dramatizations of The Lord of the Rings

1:10:24.860,1:10:27.660
in audio format, but I haven’t just

1:10:27.660,1:10:29.310
straight-up listened to the book so I

1:10:29.310,1:10:33.900
caught up to the episode that I was

1:10:33.900,1:10:36.000
listening to. So I’m going to listen to a

1:10:36.000,1:10:38.670
chapter and then listen to the podcast

1:10:38.670,1:10:41.100
where they discuss the chapter going

1:10:41.100,1:10:43.680
forward because it they do some really

1:10:43.680,1:10:49.010
fun deep dives on Lord of the Rings. And

1:10:49.010,1:10:53.940
then I’m gonna skip over stuff I’m

1:10:53.940,1:10:56.490
reading because I haven’t really read

1:10:56.490,1:10:58.560
anything in the past month. So that’ll

1:10:58.560,1:11:00.680
probably do it for this vloggy type

1:11:00.680,1:11:08.850
episode thing. So see you in the next

1:11:08.850,1:11:11.270
episode.
