Thank you for tuning in to Episode 184 of the Down Cellar Studio Podcast. Full show notes with photos can be found on my website www.downcellarstudio.com/184 This week’s segments included: Off the Needles On the Needles From the Armchair Crafty Adventures KAL News Events Contest, News & Notes Ask Me Anything On a Happy Note Quote of the Week Off the Needles, Hook or Bobbins Gray Bobble Hexagon Trivet Pattern: Bobble Hexagon Trivet by Amy Minard ($4.50 US crochet pattern) Yarn: Lily Sugar n’ Cream in the Greige Colorway Hook:  H (5.0mm) Moonrise Necklace Pattern: Moonrise Necklace by Sivia Harding & Ellen Sandin (knit) Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm) Yarn: Vineyard Silk Classic – lace weight silk yarn came with kit.  Bought kit at Stitches West 2016. Emily (knittingbutterfly), Joanna Johnson and I went out to San Jose and were very kindly hosted by our friends the Knitmores- Jasmin and Gigi of the Knitmore Girls podcast. Thursday afternoon before the event actually opened that we had lunch with Sivia. When we dropped her back at her hotel we went up to her room and she showed us the kits for these beautiful necklaces and samples that were already made/in progress. Knew it was something my mom would love! She had a handful of colors to choose from and we got to pick what we wanted off her bed and buy them! When we got back to the car we all agreed that the exhilaration was intoxicating and decided this was the knitting version of a drug deal. We got such a kick out of it.  Kit had everything I needed- yarn, beads, the flosser to string the beads, clasp. Love the way this came out. Think I’d have liked it with the 2.0 mm called for and perhaps with bigger beads a little better but I didn’t have that on hand. Pattern is well written and intuitive. It was easy to memorize the 8 row repeat and to read my knitting once the repeat was established. Something new to me. Never knit with beads before. K1, place one. very easy.  Pattern available as a kit from Earthfaire (US $29.95). Kit includes pattern, silk thread, bead mix, and clasp.
