Episode 84: Broken, But Still Knitting!

Sadly, I think I broke my pinky knuckle . . . but I still have some WIPS and knitting history for you! Today, it’s Nancy Bush’s Country Socks and the (long overdue) Knit Together Project! It’s so cool to be assembling a blanket made from your squares! And a little Colonial US wool from Peggy Hart’s Wool book 🙂 Bad Sheep giveaway winner announced! Come hang a while? ~Melissa

  2. Commiserations on your injury, hope it heals soon, but what a great opportunity to finally get the blanket squares pieced together. On the subject of wool, I have never been successful in giving up my childhood bedding of sheets and wool blankets in favour of the more trendy duvets which I find to be at the same time too lightweight and too stifling (surely difficult to achieve). As well as my own hand-knits which are pretty much exclusively wool, I prefer wool for coats and for winter skirts and trousers. I’m tempted to try a pair of wool tights this winter – bought, because hand-knitting tights would be just too much of a committment. Thanks for putting together another fascinating podcast; as a fan of sci-fi I’m also going to head over and take a look at the “lessons” in the coming weeks.

    • Wonderful to hear from you, Pamela 🙂 I hope you enjoyed the science fiction as well! I love your adherence to all things wool. I’m feeling the same way. But I do have a down blanket that I layer under my quilt in the winter for super toasty nights. I hope you’re taking good care!

    Just a comment about ancient wool scouring: Old urine from beer drinkers was used because it broke down into (the strongest? Most reliable?) ammonia. Chemistry thing. Before petrochemical degreasers were invented around WW II, ammonia was the best degreaser we had. Now we can buy Dawn dish liquid or Tide. Lucky us! Just FYI.
