Episode 85: Homebody

Vidcast is up on time, for once!

This week I managed to get lots of knitting in, so lot's to discuss — but one of the highlights was getting to meet Ms. Martine of the iMake Podcast in person!  Long story short, while posting something to my office Twitter feed, I saw that Martine happened to be bopping around the Big Apple. I couldn't help Tweeting back at her "I'm right across the street! Let's meet up!" And so we did, and it was fab! My turn to visit Guernsey, I suppose? ;)

On the Needles:
Parade Socks — Gynx Yarn, Glitz Sock in "Aquarium"Vivian Cardigan — Knit Picks, Wool Of the Andes, Bulky in "Wallaby"Sirdar Lady's Jumper  — Debbie Bliss, Rialto

This week I'm really in love with my ChiaoGoo circs — they're practically the Louboutin's of knitting needles (without the hefty price tag of course)!
