Episode 189 - The one where Nani speaks

There is a lot of knitting going on! Gayle and I were both energized and inspired by the many beautiful sweaters we saw last month at Stitches West. Unfortunately, that doesn't translate into faster knitting, just longer queues!

This episode, at about 33:00 minutes in, when Boo the cat enters the room, you might hear the bird say "Eek a cat!" Gayle starts laughing and of course, hilarity ensues. This is real life. We hope the guest appearance will enhance your enjoyment of the episode. :)

  1. I would suggest that you go to Suzanne Bryan’s YouTube channel and look at her podcast for a circular yoke sweater. She has a tutorial and class that has in depth instructions for fitting this type of sweater.

  2. Hi Sharlene. I have an idea (probably a completely ridiculous idea!) for your Sweig problem. What if you reinforced for a couple of steeks to take it in and seam it back up, like if you were taking in a sewn garment? Maybe if you did two, one on each side, that angled toward your neck, if would be an inconspicuous fix. I don’t know. It seems like the kind of thing Elizabeth Zimmerman would try, and you’re so brave with the sweater surgery.
