Episode 7.5 - We Couldn't Shut Up!

The bloggy part of Episode 7 where we talked about Project v. Process knitting and my Mom the Sock Machine.

Show Notes:

Project vs Process discussion and why we are what we are.  Great debate on Yarnthropology group on Ravlery on knitting vs crochet and a great article by Craft & Hobby Association blog here.

You two are great together. Really enjoyed this weeks segments. How lucky to receive knitted items from other people. I don't have any friends that knit. I am a process knitter. I like to have something to knit on and then I like to give it away.

My daughter, who is graduating from college this May, will be living in Germany in January to be an au pair (kind of an expensive babysitter after four years of college)for 9 months and then she hopes to be teaching in France after that. Told her she will have to get me some yarn and needles why she is there. Can't wait to see what you purchase.

Wendy said...

Yes, Germany is a good place for yarn and needles! I can't wait to see what I buy either!

I love your podcast.Do not apologize for talking too much.It feels like I am sitting in the room with the two of you talking knitting.Keep up the great work.I like you chatty informal approach.

Sheila said...

Thank you DJdeeKnits, we have such a could time doing this we lose track of time, even though we have a timer. I am glad tht you are enjoying it too. That is what we hope our viewers feel, that they are here with us chatting.

I love that you talk so much, you are always so happy too which is great. I taught my mother how to knit socks and I have lots of sock yarn but I knit my own. I bought the sock yarn book One Skein Wonders which has lots of projects for sock yarn but not actually socks. I think I am a process knitter too as I love to make items and then gift them. Although I have learnt who to knit for and who not to knit for!

Sheila said...

Sue, I love that book as well, has some great ideas for fingering weight yarn. Thank you for your comment, we really are happy doing this. Maybe your mom can start being your "sock knitter." LOL

Tara said...

Ha! That was hilarious! Wendy, I should send your mom all my sock yarn to knit me socks, she'd finish all of them before I finish the pair I've been working on for what 6 months now? LOL

Tara said...

Ha! That was hilarious! Wendy I should send your mom all my sock yarn to knit socks for me! She'll be finished with all of them by the time I finish the pair I've been working on for almost a year!! LOL

Wendy said...

She would probably do it, T!

Oh how refreshing to hear that you are a 'selfish' knitter, Wendy! I mean that in a good way because I am just the same as you and I HATE the question, "Who is that for?". Damn, it's for me!!! Like you said, life is too short to waste my free time knitting for others. I also find it frustrating when people see my passion for knitting and immediately put in an order for something. Hey, it's all about me, right? Of course my mom can ask for anything and I will do it for her, she's my mom! My kids and hubby are the same.
Love you guys, have I said that before? ;-))

Sheila said...

Kimberly, thank you so much for all your lovely comments. We really do appreciate them.

I agree that everyone should really be a selfish knitter, we do work so hard on our items. I am selfish with my socks, but that is all.

Thank you for watching.
