The Yarniacs: A Knitting Podcast

May 2, 2014

It has been slightly longer than usual between our recording of episodes and we have a bit of catch up to do! We've finished some projects, stalked a few new things, and rediscovered sock knitting.We also add a little more to the inspirations discussion. We talk about fiber, and if we are inspired by the fiber to make the projects we do, or if the pattern inspires us to pick the fiber and project. Process or project knitter? Do new techniques draw you in or do you prefer something more familiar? Most of us are probably a combination of all these things combined. Either way, I am sure you will all agree that picking our projects is exciting and inspirational in and of itself.

Inspirations Part 2
Fiber inspiration! Are you a knitter who is inspired by patterns and then picks yarn to make your project? Or are you a knitter who is inspired by yarns and then picks patterns to go along with it?
