The Yarn Geek is a brand new podast hosted by Denise, who I met at the Plucky Knitter trunk show at Gauge + Tension, and also hung out with the past weekend at Vogue Knitting LIVE.

This week I also seem to have re-discovered audio podcasts!I've been binge-listening to the Sweet Georgia Show (recommended by Tiny Paper Foxes podcast), hosted by Felicia Lo or Sweet Georgia Yarns.

Through the previous podcast, I also started watching the

Knit at least 12 pairs of socks in 1 year — the more the merrier!

The idea is to fill a box (big or small) … with lovely hand knit socks! This way, come 2017, you’ll have a whole box of lovely socks, ready to wear … Or admire.

Start Date: Jan. 1, 2016. I will close this thread on January 1, 2017 and draw prizes (still TBD).

In the meantime, please post in the official Ravelry thread for general chatter, questions, sharing pix, and progress.

Please use #BoxOsoxKAL for sharing pix on Instagram

Can’t wait to see all your gorgeous socks!

This week I unloaded a bobbin of singles using Gourmet Stash "Broken Ornaments" fiber. I navajo plied the singles, which resulted in 108 yds DK.

Did a little spinning on my Lendrum. Fiber is Loop, in the "Ohm" colorway. 

I'm not sure what I was thinking, but I didn't bring knitting with me to VKL. But I did bring my small Subterranean Woodworks Turkish spindle and a rolag, from Adrian of the Freakish Lemon Podcast.
