Episode 1 - Here it Goes

Thanks for joining me for episode 1!

on the needles

I'm busily knitting on Jenny Gordy's basic sock pattern from Made By Hand and have finished the first sock. I'm knitting these in Neighborhood Fiber Company Studio Sock in the Bloomingdale colorway. I'm also working on the Hue Shift Afghan designed by Kerin Dimeler-Laurence using the rainbow kit and the Guernsey Wrap by Jared Flood in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in the Nest colorway. You can see progress photos of the Hue Shift KAL or join us by tweeting or instagramming with #hueshiftkal. My long-lost wip for the episode is the Pomme de Pin Cardigan by Amy Christoffers that I'm knitting using a Bartlettyarns Fisherman Sport Cone in Willow.

The bread recipe I tackled over the weekend is a No Knead Bread recipe that I found on Bleubird. The inspiration for my Portuguese Kale Soup was from The Victory Garden Cookbook and found on District of Chic. The book I suggested for anyone interested in the history of cooking and eating is Cooked by Michael Pollan. It was a great audiobook to listen to while knitting. I'm also hosting a glogg party in a few weeks and am excited to plan the menu.
