This week:
Abstract FiberFact #1: Who wants their knitting happiness interrupted
by a knot in their yarn? We at Abstract Fiber believe our skeins should
not have knots! We maintain a zero knot policy when winding our yarns.
If the yarn breaks, we set it aside and start another skein. Our Macho
Socks and triple skeins give you larger skeins, and still, no knots. At
Abstract Fiber we provide you with the highest quality product, and
that means no knots! Remember, at AbstractFiber.com we offer free
shipping in the US and Canada for all orders over $100.


This week:
Autumn is in the air. Here at Purlescence Yarns we're turning our
thoughts toward holiday projects. We'll be knitting, spinning, and
weaving most of our gifts this year. Now's the time to make that list
of gifts for your friends and family. Let us help you with tons of
ideas for great gifts. We'll be tweeting about them in the coming
weeks. Follow us @Purlescence on Twitter!


Events: (00:31)

- New York Sheep and Wool Festival (Rhinebeck): Oct 17-18. Meetup TBD.

On the Needles: (2:41)

Jasmin's Tangled Yoke Cardigan is nearly finished. Gigi is working on her Origami Wrap Pullover.
Jasmin talks about buttonbands, and picking up three stitches for every
four rows when picking up stitches for a buttonband. Gigi is working on
a few pairs of vanilla socks, out of Regia Galaxy. Jasmin is knitting a pair of socks for Andrew out of her Crown Mountain "Albatross" handspun.

Gigi is working on a crocheted edging
for pillowcases. Jasmin talks about the yarn swap at Purlescence, where
she came away with a skein of sock yarn, and a sweater's worth of Brown Sheep NatureSpun (in Cranberry Fog).

Contest: (25:44)

Post your contest ideas in our Ravelry group!

Mother Knows Best: (28:08)

We discuss "breakout projects". Jasmin's favorite "learning" baby sweater is the cardigan from Debbie Bliss's "Quick Baby Knits". We also recommend the Print of the Wave Stole (errata for the edging here), the Twist Cardigan, and the Lady Eleanor Stole.

When Knitting Attacks: (35:54)

Gigi has been foiled by not being able to find the issue of Interweave Knits with the Frost Flowers Stole (by Charlene Schurch). Jasmin's enthusiasm causes trouble, again, with her Tangled Yoke Cardigan. Gigi's Swallowtail Shawl hits some snags. We talk about lifelines. Gigi's Scandanavian Socks continue to be troubled.

Straw into Gold: (51:15)

Jasmin spins a little more of Duchess (to become the Carnaby Street Pullover).
She has also been spinning some of the Crown Mountain Superwash in "Hey
Jude". Jasmin experiments with dyeing pindrafted roving in the coil.
