Episode 6: Rumble, Ramble



Josh is working on the Cubism blanket by Woolly Thoughts. He is knitting it out of Red Heart (gasp!) Super Saver and on US size 9/5.5 mm needles. 

The second project of the week is his westknits scrapghan which is actually a Frankie Brown design known as the Ten Stitch Blanket, which has been modified to be an 11 stitch blanket because Josh is a dork about numbers and 11 is his favorite number! It is knit out of the scraps of yarn from his westknits shawls (mostly fingering weight yarns) and on US size 3/3.25 mm needles. 

Josh is also working on a new design called 45 degrees, which has yet to appear in the knitting world, but will hopefully make its appearance soon! It is knit with fingering weight yarns in 3 colors on US size 4/3.5mm needles. 

The WIP's from previous weeks were untouched. Rams and Yowes Blanket by Kate Davies, Celestine by Norah Gaughan, and Mitered Crosses by Kay Gardiner. 


Josh actually had some!!! ;) 

Purl Ridge Scarf by Stephen West knit out of Berroco Peruvia in the colorway Alcaparro on US size 8/5mm needles. 

and another Purl Ridge knit out of Red Heart Soft from the stash on US 8/5mm needles as well. 


Josh finished his Kraemer Mauch Chunky in the colorway Pine Nut and got 47-ish yards of bulky/worsted weight yarn out of 2 oz. 

Josh started spinning the Woolen Mill St. Yarns 100% corridale 4oz. braid in the color Nightmare. 


Josh re-colored the blog this past week (as you can see if you read this!) 

Josh won an AWESOME prize in the Hunger Games group!! He won 4oz. of the color way Finnick from Jessica of Storied Yarns: Fiber Arts with Character. Thank you SO much!!! :) 

Sign ups for the Hunger Games are up until the 17th, so check them out! (sorry as it's the 18th and I just posted the shownotes! BAD PODCASTER, NO COOKIE!) 

Josh bought some awesome Huckleberry Knits Superwash BFL 4oz. in the colorway Centurion


  1. Hi Josh, your rambles this week were educational!! On the cubism shawl, I was confused until you mentioned the 'tumbling blocks'. One of my reading blogs startd such a sweater some time ago, remembering that allowed me to imagine how your blanket will look. Good luck; not one I would care to do.
    see you next week

  2. you are very right about basic constructions, triangular,top down, etc..thanks for pointing it out.

    good for you on the spinning!

    The Huckleberry knits is beautiful!
