Episode 71 — Squirrel Naps

In Episode 71, Greg and Pam discuss not fishing, not knitting, and not getting drafted. They also review Leaflet #20 from The Opinionated Knitter by Elizabeth Zimmermann.

Special thanks to Kym for the intro!


We are Knitcrate Ambassadors! Are you the kind of knitter who would enjoy receiving a surprise package of yarn in the mail every month? Then you need to sign up for a Knitcrate subscription. Every month, you will receive a selection of curated yarn, a pattern specifically paired to use with the yarn, and a treat. Use code KD20 at checkout for 20% off your first package when you sign up for a subscription.

FiberCrafty’s  independently owned shops are stocked with yarn, fiber, project bags, stitch markers and more. With filter terms specific to yarn and fiber, the ability to save favorites, and a secure checkout process, it’s better than a 24 hour fiber festival! For shop owners, our easy to use interface makes selling online easy. FiberCrafty is owned by one woman that has a crazy love of yarn and knitting. Greg’s favorite feature? Pants are optional. Shop for your next project at FiberCrafty.

Listen To The Episode


Dear Listeners

We would love to have YOU record and introduction to the show! You can find details in the Ravelry Group Pages.

Greg’s Projects
  • Greg is still working on a gramps cardigan, pattern by tincanknits. He is using Berroco Vintage. He just needs to finish the finishing work and get some buttons.
  • Greg also finished a small cross-stitch kit. It’s a chocolate soft serve ice cream emoji.
Pam’s Projects
  • Ten Mile Fiber is a farm with a small mill and they process not only their own farm fiber, but also that from neighboring farms. Check out their beautiful fiber!
  • The weekly FiberCrafty newsletter always has a list of current coupon codes! And other fun stuff. Pam writes it, it’s good. You should subscribe.
The Opinionated Knitter (affiliate link)
  • We discussed Leaflet #20, pages 98-101 featuring the Kangaroo Pouch Sweater! Next up, Leaflet #21, pages 102-107.
Current/Upcoming Unraveling Events
  • Pam met up with Jan of the Twinset Designs podcast and had a delightful time.
  • There is a wonderful article about the woman who knit the sweaters for the new movie Mr. Rogers movie, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.
  • And, here you can find a pattern to make your own.
  • And, Tom Hanks is related to Fred Rogers.
  • Pam also mentioned the Enneagram workshop she attended. Her friend who is an Enneagram instructor, recommends this online test if you are interested. (There are lots of free ones but if you don’t get a clear type a paid one might be worth it.)

This is why Greg’s fishing trip was cancelled:
