episode 49 | emma conkers the world!
Podcasting under a new moon in the same week as the autumn equinox.....big WOW!
This week I've gone conker crazy with the amazing bronze coloured Thums Up yarn from Krityum Handmade and I'm making mitts, mittens, socks and socks.
Episode 49 Show Notes
Ravelry Group for this podcast: http://bit.ly/2d3hSb6
I finished designing a pair of lovely crocheted Conker Mitts using Thums Up, these are about to be tech edited and the pattern will be launched, hopefully with a yarn pack to go with it, at the beginning of October.
I'm also designing another pair of Coppid Mittens using Thums Up and BFL Lace from Blacker Yarns in the colour Shoal.
The sock yarn I'm using for Darren's socks is Regia Design Line 4 ply in Tinn 02462 available here.
I'm knitting a pair of socks using Aegean Sea from @betsymakes and making it up as I go along. I'm using a dot stitch from 400 Knitting Stitches by Potter Craft.
Liula CAL Information
I've extended the CAL by two weeks because so many of you didn't receive your yarn cake until mid-September. The CAL now ends on 14th November
The Liula pattern can be purchased here on Ravelry and you have the choice of downloading it in the original UK terminology version or a converted to US terminology version. Until the end of the CAL I won't be selling the pattern anywhere else. There is a 50% discount code for all pattern purchases, this code is LOVELIULA50 and it will expire on the 31 October 2017.
3ply, 1000m Cotton Flowers yarn in a gazillion different colourways can be purchased from Cottonflowers Yarns on Etsy: http://etsy.me/2wtpM5c.
The hashtag for the CAL is #CAKECAL and will be used primarily on Instagram where I will be reposting lovely pictures of your Liulas. I will also use the hashtag on Twitter.
You can use any yarn cake you like but try to make sure it is either 3ply or 4ply to get the same or similar unstructured look. You could try Scheepjes Whirl which is the same length and fibre but 4ply instead of 3ply and slightly more expensive.
