Episode 41: Purl & Ply and Qiviut!

Hello happy fiber folk! I have so much to share! There is a review of Purl & Ply’s beautiful singles yarn knit up in Casapinka’s “Vary the Gate”; a giveaway from Purl & Ply; Sheep to Shawl Competition talk for Wisconsin Sheep and Wool (I’ll be there–will you??); and lots of fiber fun with qiviut (Musk Ox). Come hang out for a little while, eh? ~Melissa

**GIVEAWAY DETAILS: Purl & Ply has offered two beautiful skeins for this giveaway! I will accept comment entries for two weeks before I close the giveaway. You can enter here, on the blog, in the Ravelry thread, or over on IG. Due to postage costs, I have to restrict this giveaway to US residents only.

To enter the giveaway, Please answer ONE of the following questions here, on Youtube (episode 41), on IG or in the Ravelry thread!

  • What is your favorite Purl & Ply colorway? OR
  • What is your favorite yarn base (weight/composition)?

Knit Together Project Info: Lots of maker communities collaborate or play “tag” with fun objects, ideas, materials, or FOs. Right now, for example, there is an ice pick making the rounds with YouTubers . . . each person who receives the ice pick makes a video about using the object. I thought that we fiber-fellows could make up a collective project of our own. Won’t you join us?

    I so enjoy your blog and podcast, Melissa, and I eagerly look forward to each entry/episode. Your knowledge and joy of fiber makes everything you do a delight. Purl and Ply’s colorways are beautiful, and I chose two favorites — Frolic and Secret Garden. (Hope that musk ox shows up on Craigslist!) B-)

    I love the look of swanky elephant!


  4. I really enjoyed the episode, and I appreciate all the effort you put in to making your podcasts both entertaining and instructive. I don’t qualify for the giveaway, but just wanted to say Love Potion is a great colourway.

    Romantic Getaway is gorgeous! I want a sweater knitted in this yarn – it would be wonderful with jeans.

    I would love to make a sweater in the swanky elephant colorway!


  7. I really enjoyed Ep. 41 – the first I’ve watched. I will be watching all of them. I am an avid spinner and looking forward to my first experience with Qiviut purchased last year when visiting Alaska. Another spinner told me that Judith McKenzie says to spin lots and lots of cotton in preparation for spinning Qiviut. It will be interesting to learn of your experience. Thank you for your wonderful podcast!
