In this episode we share our "Yarniacs Tech Tips" segment. In the past, we've sprinkled tips, tricks, and helpful hints throughout the podcast, but going forward, we will try to bunch them together as an occasional segment. This should make things easier to find!

This episode we discuss how to remember make one left and make one right; Sharlene's technique to "close the gap" on circular bind-offs; and using stitch markers to assist when casting on a large number of stitches.

Episode 169 - Knitting pattern fatigue

You know that feeling when all the patterns start to look the same? Maybe you can't bear to look at one more garter stitch striped shawl? It happens to all of us. I call it "pattern fatigue." One of the great things about the robust pattern database on Ravelry is that we are exposed to so many fantastic patterns. One of the reasons we experience pattern fatigue is that robust pattern database on Ravelry.  It works both ways. In this episode we talk a little bit about experiencing pattern fatigue, vacation planning and knitting, and of course, all our usual segments. Enjoy!
