Welcome to the Relentless Knitting Podcast! We’re so happy you've found us. We are two science teachers who knit based out of the beautiful Okanagan valley in British Columbia Canada. The goal of this podcast is to share our love of the fibre arts and foster community. Our focus will be knitting with flares of other hobbies and interests. We are both recent first time moms and we’ll be sharing some of our adventures in mommyhood. We own Relentless Knitting Company and are contracted by our local yarn store to teach knitting classes.

Karla - nada Stash Enhancement Emily- Review yarn from Round Mountain Fibers - corriedale fleece, spinning wheel, 100% wool Karla - Sorrento retreat/birthday haul Meet the Knitter - Amy Name: Amy McKay Raverly alias: amyelisha Other Social media? @amyelisha on instagram (my account is private to protect pictures of my daughter, but I do love connecting with other knitters so don’t be shy about sending me a follow request!) When and how did you first learn to knit? I think it was in 2014, and I learned by watching YouTube videos. Every time I encountered a new stitch or technique I would just watch videos and practice until I figured it out. My own grandmothers had long since stopped knitting by the time I had an interest, but I’m hoping to teach my daughter in a few more years. What was your first project? A cotton dishcloth. I knit 3 of them on some terrible plastic needles from Michael’s, but despite some dropped stitches and random yarn overs, they are still workhorses stashed away with my cleaning supplies! What is your biggest knitting disaster? Hmm. Nothing comes to mind really. I tend to stop long before something ends disastrously (in knitting..not necessarily in life!). I knit a Gaptastic Cowl as one of my earliest projects, before I knew what gauge was, and it was monstrously huge. I’m talking, could-have-clothed-a-linebacker big. Needless to say, it got frogged! What are you most proud of as a knitter? I’m proud to create beautiful, useful, long lasting items that can be tangible examples for my loved ones of how much I care about them (because it’s a big time & energy investment!). And, when I knit for myself, I’m proud to engage in an activity that is a powerful act of self care both in the actual making of the thing, and then in the wearing of it. It really feels like I’m nurturing myself when I cast on something lovely with only myself in mind. We should really call it self-love knitting, rather than selfish knitting! What are you favorite items to knit? Stuffed toys for the important tiny humans in my life, and shawls for myself Are you a process knitter or a product knitter? I’m both! I used to be more of a product knitter but the more time goes on the more I’ve found that the act of knitting has become incredibly important to my well being. I’m a stay-at-home parent now, and it is hands down the most difficult job I’ve ever had (and I used to literally save babies for a living as an NICU nurse). Knitting allows me to satisfy so many of own needs: for mental stimulation, quiet alone time, and creative expression, all of which are hard to come by at this stage of my life. So, process has become extremely important to me as well. That said, I can’t fully engage in a project unless the finished object is something I’m excited to gift or wear. What it will be definitely still matters. Do you have any knitting goals? Projects? Techniques? I’d love to learn brioche, dive into sweater making, and eventually learn enough of the math involved to begin tech editing. Math doesn’t come easily to me, but I love editing. I can learn, right? Do you do any other fiber arts other than knitting? Not yet, but I have grand plans to learn embroidery, weaving, sewing, and rug punching. I want to learn it all! Especially sewing, I am most excited about eventually being able to make my own clothes and stop relying on fast fashion, which isn’t in line with my values and not the example for resource stewardship that I want to set for my daughter. But because she is so little, and free time is so scarse, new hobbies have to wait a while. Do you have any other super powers other than knitting? Momming. Thats a super power right?? I never really felt that i had a “true calling” until my child was born. Mothering, while certainly not all unicorns and rainbows, is really a natural aptitude for me. I’m good at it, and I love it (most days). I used to be a pretty good writer too, back in the day, and I can pick up new languages easily. I’m also a PADI Divemaster, which means I can teach some scuba diving courses and guide other divers around sites. I’m an excellent shark spotter! If there is one to be found or spotted in the distance, I promise i’ll see it. Anything else you’d like to tell the world? (shameless self promotion!) I’m incredibly passionate about feminism (intersectional or bust), and birth and the myriad of ways the two intersect. And I’ll happily chat about either with anyone, anytime! Adventures in Mommyhood Emily- Tooth pop!! Nap schedule has been terrible! THREENAGER temper tantrums. Karla- So stoked and so bummed Inquiring minds Tell us about you!

Episode 43 - The Big Move

EPISODE 41 - Introductions Karla - K-Rae on Ravelry and Karlacrafts on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest Emily -  EmGemKnits - Instagram, and Ravelry . EmKnits on Twitter and EmGem on Pinterest Shout outs Introduce yourself in the Ravelry group or leave us a review on itunes or google play music. Meet a knitter Hi! I am Circusbear on Ravelry, and lareefinnsson on Instagram. When I was about 13, I wanted to learn how to knit. My mother is left handed so I couldn’t learn from her. So my aunt taught my dad the basic knit stitch so he could teach me! And someone taught me how to purl along the road, lol. I knitted for a few years, and then forgot about it for 20 years! A friend of mine talked about it a few years ago and I have been HOOKED ever since! My first big project was a sweater when I was about 20! I still can’t believe I have made a sweater! It had a graph to do the color work & everything! And I did it! So I know I will do it again! My biggest Knitting disaster? Socks I so proudly knit for my son, making sure they were long enough…but they were far too narrow and he cannot even get them on his feet. So I need to figure out how to adjust socks to fit. What am I most proud of? That I am continuing both of my grandmothers heritage. They were both great needle work gals, and I have inherited stuff from them both to do with their love of needle work. And I feel honored. My favorite item to knit at the moment seem to be cowls! Lol. I am on my 3rd in a row! I am definitely a project knitter. I cannot have too many things on the go at the moment, or it bugs me, lol. My goals? A sweater! And figure out how to knit socks to feet size! I love Knitting because it keeps me mindful, and allows me to use the other side of my brain, and put down technology, (for the most part, as I use it for patterns, I do not do paper patterns usually). I can knit ANYWHERE. I do not do any other needle work. I do not really want to learn to crochet, as I love to knit! And crochet is so fast, that I may never knit again! Lol. I do though, want to learn some felting so I can make some felted gifts for Christmas! What are my other super powers? A have raised a son, I have a 16 year old daughter, I love horses but also have a fear of riding, so I need to work through that fear. My daughter is very tiny and handles her big horse just fine, so she proves to me all the time that I can do it when I make that step! I work full time, and also do project work (everything from bookkeeping, to advertising, to communications, to consulting) for other small business. That pays for the horse, & lessons, and my daughter’s math tutor! I guess that’s a bit of shameless advertising right there!
