Show Notes: “Ch-ch-changes”

♥ Sock it to Summer 2017 is ending the last day of August! You still have time to get those last minute finished socks entered!

WiPs:
♥ O4 of 12 Socks: these are almost finished. They are the longest socks I have ever knit, and I’m getting a bit sick of them.
♥ 10 Stitch Blanket: I am almost done with the third square. I have two more rounds to go then this one is fini!
♥ My daughter picked my next pair of socks for my personal sock club. It’s not looking good for getting through 12 pairs this year, but I’m OK with that.
♥ Next on deck is Threipmuir. If I do not get started soon, I may not finish it in time for New York Sheep and Wool.

Life Chat:
♥ I discussed the last 3 weeks of my life.
♥ I discussed changes that are coming to both the podcast and my shop. I hope it will not be too disappointing to anyone, but I really need a change.

Discussion Topic: “What I wear, vs. what I do not.”

I have discovered that I wear only a small portion of most items I knit which can be disappointing, but I think I’ve honed in on what makes different types of knits wearable for me. I would love to hear what you have learned during your time knitting! Do you wear everything you knit? Have your tastes changed? Let me know in the comments!
