90% Knitting – Episode 350 – A Significant Number

Thanks for watching this 350th episode! Show notes with time stamps can be found below. If you’re entering the 350th Episode Drawing, you’ll need to do that in the comments on YouTube (see details below). Otherwise, please feel free to leave general episode comments in any of the usual places: on YouTube, in the episode thread *in the Fibernymph Dye Works Ravelry group, or here in the Episode 350 blog post (links to all locations are at the bottom of the show notes). Be advised that links preceded with an asterisk do take you to Ravelry. I’ve included non-Ravelry links whenever possible.


Intro – The intro this week is rather lengthy and actually encompasses most of what I was going to talk about in 10% this week, so things are somewhat flipped around!

6:56 – Episode 350 Drawing – if you’d like to celebrate my 350th episode with me by entering the drawing for the Deep Fall skein + coordinating floofy pompom and some other unnamed goodies, please leave a comment on YouTube (in the comments section beneath the video) and tell me something that you’re thankful for today! I’ll use a random comment picker before I record my next episode and announce the winner then.

8:40 – Finished Objects

Autumnal Houndstooth Cowl – Woven on my Ashford 10″ SampleIT Rigid Heddle Loom, 7.5 Dent heddle. Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in Sunset and Glitter, one skein each.

Bulky Batt Mat – Yarn: some random handspun from a chunky art batt that I spun ages ago and was in my stash. No pattern…I just crocheted a rectangle using half-double crochets until the yarn was mostly gone. Used a K hook.

13:50 – Works in Progress

Shepherd’s Pi(e) Short-ish Socks
Yarn: FDW Traveler, Shepherd’s Pi(e) colorway. US 1.5 needles. No pattern, just my plain vanilla sock over 54 stitches with heel flap and gusset.

Weekender-ish Pullover
Yarn: My combo spun yarn. US 5 and 6 needles. Using The Weekender pattern by Andrea Mowry as my guide, but I’m changing it up quite a bit, including knitting it flat to piece the front and back.
