Yarnharlot

I love reading Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's (aka The Yarnharlot) blog...she really is a funny story teller...whether she is talking about her latest project, trip, family or just happenings in her life...she makes me think, laugh and become aware. She is about to go on the DIY Network show "Knitty Gritty" and has been doing a sock a day. Yikes! They are gorgeous but I would hate to do the same thing over and over. I can't wait to see the episode. Since I am getting into making socks now I would like to get as many tips as I can.

I wonder what the deal is with "Knitty Gritty". The episodes are repeats and they keep repeating the repeats. When does the new season start? On the website there is a list of titles for new shows but no new ones have aired in a long long time. I hope it won't be canceled because I really enjoy Vickie Howell. I am doing the cross-over scarf pattern from one of the episodes, two of them actually (in different fibers) and they are coming out gorgeous. I like that the website posts all of the patterns from the show and video clips that help with some of the more difficult techniques.

That's a nice pattern. Which fibers are you using?
