Podcast Episode 24

Hi there! I'm back! Here are my show notes for Episode 24 taped on Father's Day, June 18, 2017 all about my recent trip to Toronto, Ontario:

I showed my Canada 150 inspired needle minder (that I also use to hold my rug hooking hook and embroidery scissors) from Paula at Kelmscott Designs and available through

The first yarn store I visited was Yarns Untangled where I bought two skeins of handed yarn from Riverside Studio, a Canadian indie dyer in Wakefield, Quebec. I purchased her 80/20 SW merino/nylon sock yarn in the 'Creek' (the one for my husband) and 'Little Burgundy' (the one for me) colour ways.

The next day I headed off to two more yarns shops but only talked about one of them in this podcast - Ewe Knits! I LOVED Ewe Knits!

Lovely fairly traded project bag sewn by Madres Salters for Ewe Knits.

Book on felting is called 'Felt With Love' by Madeleine Millington (Search Press) also purchased at Ewe Knits.

Two sheets of wooden felt were purchased at Ewe Knits.

Grace Handwarmers kit (free pattern) by Ewe Knits in Lang Cashmere premium chocolate (067) and aqua (172).

Muskoka Shawl (free pattern) by Ewe Knits in Blue Sky Fibres Wolstock Worsted yarn in colours Storm Cloud, Cast Iron, Earth Ivy and Golden Meadow.


I did this podcast backwards and showed my WIPS last!

First up was my The Age of Brass and Steel (free pattern) shawl knit in Legacy Fiber Artz colour way 'Four Main Food Groups' a Christmas  colour way inspired by the movie 'Elf'.

Secondly were my husband's socks knit using Susan B. Anderson's Smooth Operator socks (paid pattern). I managed to fix and finish both after thought heels!

Hope you enjoy the podcast!
