Episode 76: Making in the Pandemic

Hello makers! This episode is all about what Spencer and I have been making in the pandemic. It’s always nice to have Spencer on as a podcast–I know you all love seeing him visit in the yarn room πŸ™‚ Plus, I have a second finished Chimney sweater, more on my Afterthought sweater WIP, and two GIVEAWAY winners for the Ranching Tradition Fiber yarn giveaway. Oh . . . and I have a little something up my sleeve for you all: another GIVEAWAY from my own stash! Details are below. I hope you’re all safe and well! ~Melissa

  3. Lovely to see you both again and catch up with your doings. For some reason whenever you say you’re from Urbana, Illinois it sounds really exotic to me. I love the colours of your cowl/sweater and Spencer’s Chimney Sweater is great, although I feel if he’s going to model he needs a pipe like in the patterns of the 1950s and 1960s. I was interested when you said that you feel the armhole shaping is wrong and too deep. This is because I always look at top-down sweaters and think the armholes never look right – they’re not deep enough! Isn’t it funny, and very much a case of one man’s meat is another man’s poison. Glad to know you’re keeping safe.

    • Hi Pamela–I know what you mean about the armholes . . . sometimes they just surprise you! And it’s so funny to hear Urbana described as exotic πŸ™‚ It’s a very normal midwestern town. Then again, I tend to find any new place exotic–Spencer and I spent two days in Falkirk a couple of years ago and loved it. Hoping you’re well!
