On my podcast, Very Serious Crafts: In season 2, episode 24 of the Very Serious Crafts Podcast, Haley becomes increasingly sorry that she’s raining on Heidi’s vintage knitting parade. Read more in the episode show notes & check us out on Patreon.
Recently on the blog: I shared how to use the awesome knitCompanion app for note-taking and keeping track of sizes when working from garment pattern PDFs. Also! There’s still time to cast on a quick Triangle Rib Baby Hat and get in on Knitter’s Pride’s charity knit and crochet along, with prizes up for grabs for charity making! And finally, I shared a new installment of the Handmade Wardrobe series, featuring my Christmasy take on the popular Soldotna Crop sweater pattern.
