Podcasts?

I recently got an iPod, and subsequently discovered podcasts.  I've currently got KnitCast, Cast-on and It's a Purl, Man on my subscription list.  For those of you who listen to podcasts, and specifically knitting podcasts, which ones do you listen to?  Are there any specifically male ones (It's a Purl, Man is, I know).  And what is the feeling on getting together a community podcast?  Is there any interest in it (like different authors on the podcast, in a collaborative effort)?

This is where my mind goes.

Felted Entrelac Tote

Here's another one of my finished objects. I have a few more to upload to the gallery. But I am pacing them so I don't hog the homepage. Smile

This is Felted Entrelac Tote, done in Wool of the Andes. Both pattern and yarn came from KnitPicks. Their website described this as a nice introduction to entrelac. So I went for it. But either because I was too new to knitting, or some instructions were missing, I had difficulties figuring out how to continue in a couple of spots. BUT, since it was a felted project, I just fudged it. I think it turned out OK. It's now my favorite bag to carry knitting stuff around the house. Felting the bag was FUN (my first time)! I think I checked the washer at least 10 times throughout the process. Wool of the Andes worked really well.

The thong

I hused Cascade Fixation yarn and a size 5 needle. There was my maistake. I will yse a smaller needle size this time. It may take me awhile to knit it. I back on the road again tomorrow. Yeah! I can finally go back to work

Toe Jazz

This is the third pair of socks that I knitted. Toe Jazz, tabi style socks. I think they are great to wear when visiting the temple. At our temple you have to take off your shoes when you enter various buildings. Wearing sandals makes perfect sense. You just slip them on and off. No shoe laces. But your feet sure get cold in winter. These will keep them warm.

Pattern: Toe Jazz by Fiber Trends
Yarn: KnitPicks' Simple Stripes

Two Easy lace shawls

I call this my "Un-Vention" shawl - the lace pattern is adapted from a filler stitch on a traditional lace stitch that goes by multiple names. It makes a lace that is virtually "little leaf lace" - but GROWS at a constant rate.

I tend to think of this a a single pattern with two ways of constructing it - but various friends insist that it is really two patterns. so here they are:

Un-Vention Shawl - tip up

Cast on 1.
1) K,yO,K into single stitch
2 and all even rows -purl
3) K, [k,yO,K into single stitch], k
5) k2, [k,yo,k into single stitch], k2
7) k3, yo, k1, yo, k3
9) k3, yo, k until 3 stitches remain, yo, k3

The Sweater Workshop

I don't care much for groups and MWK is the only group I belong to now, but today I joined The Sweater Workshop Yahoo group.  For those of you who are working from this book, you might want to join.  Jackie Fee is the moderator and offers advice and assistance.

I might add that I've had a couple of very pleasant emails with Ms. Fee and she is great!

So, if circular seamless knitting is for you, come right along and join up!
