Episode 2: The Redo
Josh is working on a Vulpix shawl by Stephen West. It is worked on US size 4/3.5 mm needles and is knitted out of Knitpicks Bare Palette base that he dyed himself.
He is also working on a Mitered Crosses Blanket by Kay Gardiner. It is knit on US size 8/5mm needles and out of various worsted and bulky weight yarns.
The other thing on his needles is a Rams and Yowes blanket by Kate Davies. It is worked in the round on US size 9/5.5mm needles. He is making it out of 9 shades of Knitpicks Palette held double.
Josh finished a Rambling Rows blanket out of various worsted/aran weight acrylics from his stash.
He also designed and finished a still-to-be-named lace shawl made from Fearless Fibers Classic Merino Sock that he over-dyed to make into a beautiful greens and browns.
Josh went crazy and cast on and FINISHED a Boneyard shawl (by Stephen West) in less then a week! It was knitted out of 6 shades of Lion Brand Wool-Ease that he had left over from another blanket he made last year. (which happened to be a Lizard Ridge blanket by Laura Aylor)
He talked about this newer group on Ravelry called the Hunger Games group where you knit things to compete in challenges. Which is very similar to the Harry Potter House Cup group.
He also talked about his error made last week in calling the Knitgirllls Missourians rather then Mississippians! If you haven't watched their videocast yet, go and do so!!!
He then went on to explain about Shawliday and the group he's involved in promoting on Ravelry, the Wear a Shawl Day group. All sorts of crafters are welcomed!!!!(as long as it is a Ravelry santioned craft!) So come on in and join the fun!!!!
Finally, all references to a somewhat well-known website referred to as Ravelry may be answered by following the link to Ravelry.com
