90% Knitting – Episode 368 – And That’s a (Busy Bee) Wrap!

Thanks for watching this week’s episode! Below, you’ll find show notes with embedded time stamps and links to project pages, patterns, and other things I’ve mentioned. I use non-Ravelry links when possible, but any link preceded by an asterisk means that it does go to Ravelry, so be aware of that if Rav is not an accessible place for you. All of my contact/website/social media info is listed at the end of the show notes!


Intro – I spend a little time here talking about YouTube’s new ad policy, in case you’re interested. The long and short of it is that I no longer have any control over whether my videos have ads in them, where the ads are, or how many there are. So if you’re used to not seeing ads on my videos and now you are, that’s why.

15:35 Works in Progress

Sofronia – Pattern by Sarah Jordan; Yarn from Tempting Ewe Yarns, Ewe So Sparkly base in the Rainbow Brite colorway. US4 needles. I’m not sure what size the beads are that I’m using. I’m guessing 6/0 based on some charts I looked at? Using a Size 7 crochet hook to add the beads.

Hybrid Top – I’m trying to do a mash up of the basic top style of the Staple Linen Top by Joji Locatelli and the lace motif of the Talland Tee by Sonja Bargielowska for Blacker Yarns. Yarn: Blacker Yarns Lyonesse in the Moonstone colorway. US 4 needles, but I may need to start over using US 3 to get better stitch definition.

41:35 – Shop News

There will be a shop update happening on Wed., 6/16 at noon eastern.

Winter Magical Holiday Countdown Mini Collections are now available for pre-order. You have the option this year of purchasing only a Day 25 braid or skein rather than a full collection. Both listings are in the shop now. I also did a short video a couple of weeks ago doing a walk through of all of the details and options for the Winter Magical collections. You can view it here: https://youtu.be/knWf2beIxTg
