Welcome back to the Yarnings Podcast! This will be first first video version of the podcast. Yarnings is a word my niece used to describe my knitting as a little girl, and I love telling stories, so it fits :)

This is the first episode in the new video format - previous episodes were audio.

I am a big fan of knitting/fibery podcasts. They keep me company during walks and bed rest, while I am creating and cooking and cleaning. And the great thing about podcasts is that they allow me to interact with the hosts in a way I can't easily do with other mediums like TV or Books! I have made some very good friends because of podcasts.

podcast listening Kristine!

I have a special fondness for podcasts with a geeky flare. I enjoy hearing about podcasters who are also designers talking about their newest patterns. Many podcasts, I have to listen or watch with my browser window at the ready to add things to my ravelry queue!

do note, URLs may change, and I will attempt to keep the links updated.

It's been too long, my friends! I've been concentrating on my health, but really shifting my mindset back into the knitting/podcasting/designer world and wanted to start to share some of that here. My new phone does better videos, so here's a quick (1:30) clip of my purchases:

YouTube: kristine of yarnings goes to OFFF

and here is more info:

  • Three Fates Yarns (etsy) - Terra (75% superwash merino, 25% nylon) in the Merlin colorway (ravelry stash)
  • Three Fates Yarns - Lachesis merino laceweight (superwash) in the Fremont colorway (ravelry stash)
  • Huckleberry Knits (etsy) - Silk & Sparkle (63% superwash merino, 20% silk, 15% nylon, 2% silver poly) in the Winesap colorway (ravelry stash)

I also picked up a few small things from Miss Purl (etsy), Bar-Maids, and One of a Kind Buttons.
