I recently stumbled upon this podcast and couldn’t be more grateful. I LOVE the knitting aspects, but this podcast is about so much more. To me, and clearly many others, Knitting Pipeline is a treasure and I only wish I had found it sooner. Thank you Paula.

Always look forward to a new episode

Always very interesting review of projects...what went right and what could have been better. Nature notes always remind me to be more observant of my surroundings.

3 Giveaway Winners! At First Sight by Laura Linneman

Congratulations to Lisaknits/ lasknit2, yarnette, and stephigordon/indigodogmt! Please PM me and I will contact Laura so she can get the pattern to you.

I have been reading about bats. Thanks for indulging my fancy! Bats are not generally dangerous. They will not fly into your hair. Most bats eat insects.

A Country Year: Living the Questions by Sue Hubbell. Great book of nature writings.

Bats West Virginia University

Group on Ravelry Organized Knitting Club

Knitting Journal Template at www.KathrynIvy.com

Fledermaus-Tuch by Jana Albrecht

Free pattern available in German and English

I used Araucania Ranco Multy 1.5 skeins.

Added a light ruffle because it seemed a little plain.

Dancy Batty by Meta Libenter is a free pattern with bats made of lace. Diane of the Knitabulls video cast has a KAL/Knit along finishing up now. 

In The Pipeline

  • Afterthought Heel Hiking Socks using pattern by Laura Linneman
  • Nellie by Donna Higgins (RVW both yarn and pattern)
  • Seamless Yoked Baby Sweater by Carole Barenys (both yarn and pattern)

The Blethering Room

I wore my Radiance Shawl to my nephew's wedding. Someone cleaned her glasses with it.

Visit this site and if you have any macrame owls that need rescuing please send them to these wonderful ladies! Macrame Owls

Whole Wheat Bread Baking for Zabelle in Montreal. The tutorial and recipe is on the side bar on the show blog. The original recipe came from The Vegetarian Epicure by Anna Thomas c. 1972. (yikes!) Now out of print but it seems there are lots of used copies out there. But none of them probably have as many food stains as mine does. My favorite yeast is SAF available from King Arthur Flour. I also like the recipes on the King Arthur Flour site. This is what the SAF Yeast looks like. I buy the red not the gold. A whole pound for just $5.95!

If you have never made bread before start with white bread. You can also gradually work your way from white bread to whole wheat by slowly changing the ratio.

Don't worry, this is not turning into a food podcast. This was just a diversion.

Rip Van Winkle Challenge

October 1 through November 30, 2011

The Concept:

Go through your Ravelry queue to find a project that has been asleep for a long time. Or maybe you have been asleep while others have been knitting this project. 

Another mission for the overachievers out there: go to your stash and try to find your oldest yarn and match it to an pattern in your queue.

The Rules:

In the middle of November I will start a thread for finished projects. Please just post once on this thread. You must finish a RVW project to be eligible for the Prize Patrol. Prizes to be announced. 

Last chance!
