This week I chat about the right side to place buttons, test out a luxury yarn, and review Sock Architecture. Enjoy!
Picked up stitches for Ginny's Cardigan button bands.
Test knit - more to come when the pattern is released
Test driving Zealana AIR Marle yarn in a pair of Fingerless Mitts. Thank you to Zealana and Yarn Sisters for providing a ball of this luxury yarn for my review. You can find a detailed review, with photos on the blog.
Finish-Along until the end of 2014 - #ckfal2014
In light of ALL the socks I have on the needles that I discussed last week, I thought it appropriate to review Sock Architecture by Lara Neel of Math4Knitters blog. You definitely will hear more about this book in the weeks to come as I give a few of the heels and toes a try. Thank you to Cooperative Press for providing a copy of the eBook for review -- and a copy for you, too. Enter to win a copy in the Commuter Knitter Podcast Ravelry group.
Check out the Ravelry group for a chance to win a skein of the yarn and a set of gnome stitch markers.
There is also a coupon code for 15% off your entire purchase from the Little Mount Yarn Co. Etsy shop for Commuter Knitter listeners, but you'll have to tune into the episode for that ;-) The coupon code runs through November 1st.
