You Go, Guys!:
My question was answered on Yarngasm Episode 138
I’ve been watching some podcasts! Notable mentions: Croknitgurl’s Bluegrass Spinner Podcast and yarntalk’s Why I Knit (I also started watching an episode of Cutesypu Creations’ Such Nice Work, but hadn’t finished it by the time I recorded)
Let’s Talk about Socks, Baby!
Machine vs. Hand Wash:
I machine-wash my Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun socks (mostly acrylic) and my Lang Yarns Jawoll Silk socks (wool, nylon and silk). I tend to machine-wash my sock loom socks, regardless of fiber content. I used to air-dry, but now they go in the dryer since I use a laundromat.
I hand-wash all other socks, including Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball socks (wool/nylon), Three Irish Girl Adorn Sock socks (wool/nylon), Unwind Yarn Company Journey Sock socks (merino/nylon) and Plymouth Yarn Neon Now socks (wool/nylon) for different reasons – some bleed dye, some are lacy, and most of them I’m just nervous!
There’s a hole and a bunch of dropped stitches in the leg of one of my socks! How do I fix it?
(Spoiler – I don’t go over why my in-progress sock had a bunch of stitch markers on it. Next time!)
On the Edge:
I’m 32% done with War and Peace!
Glitter dipped mugs will be happening, but have been pushed back a bit
P.S. Decoupage all the things
Bath & Body Works discontinued my favorite scent, Amber Blush! 🙁
(Birchbox is on the way and should be part of the next episode)
