Episode 32 - Botanical Knits

In addition to our usual segments, we share our impressions of Botanical Knits by Alana Dakos. If you haven't checked out these lovely designs, please click on the link above and do so! We also announce the winners of the Self-indulgent KAL. Congrats to our winners and to everyone who made themselves something lovely to start the new year. Wear it with pride! I am still getting over a cold and coughing a bit. If my voice sounds like a frog, that is why!

Ambient noises this week courtesy of my bird and the wind! After we recorded I realized my front window was indeed open, and that was causing the curtains to move!

***After recording I noticed that the Entangled Vines Cardigan does indeed have slight shaping for the hips, adding a few stitches in one increase row.

  1. Thanks for another great podcast. I get so many beautiful pattern ideas from you guys! I have loved that oranje for ages too - now I need to get going on my own.
