The Yarniacs: A Knitting Podcast

Apr 19, 2013

We usually open our episodes talking about what we are wearing. What generally follows, is sharing why we are happy with our projects. This week I talk about a sweater I knit that I just don't wear. I love the yarn and in my mind I love the sweater, but for some unknown reason, I don't wear this sweater. If I don't wear it, I need to figure out a way to repurpose the yarn, or find someone who loves the sweater. But, did I mention I love the yarn? Sigh. And why do I always want to unravel the seamed sweaters? Sigh. Again.

Discussion on closures we have used includes toggles w/ knit or crocheted loops; buttons; zippers; hooks & eyes; clasps/frogs; snaps; shawl pins or removable clips; belts; and ties. Did we forget anything? Probably! Join the discussion over on Ravelry and let us know.

We also review the Devin Wristlet from Namaste Inc., which I will write about in a separate post.
