Episode 10: Riding with a Passenger

All links to Ravelry are labelled as such. I try to include links to outside websites as much as possible. At this time, I am not including links for purchasing yarns, needles, etc. If I do, they will also be appropriately labelled. As a quick reminder: I am not affiliated with any businesses. If you’d like to show your support of the podcast, please rate and review on your listening device, follow me on instagram, and / or join the ravelry discussion group (ravelry link) if it is safe for you to do so.

Introducing our first Side Car rider: Curator of show sponsor – Mom’s Yarn Stash, my Mother! Audio-Man’s mother! I am very excited to make this episode and share it with you dear listeners. She is Radekb (ravelry link) on Ravelry.

Life on the road update – 02:48

Mom is riding in the sidecar with a back brace. Her back has given her trouble before and she is taking appropriate care to keep the issue from getting worse. She is, however, on the good medicine and some of that may be evident in some of the recording. She is using the time she has off from work to take care of herself and get some knitting done.

Fashionably Riding – 04:27

Mom is fashionably riding while recording the episode in her House Socks made from Red Heart Super Saver. She recently finished her own Chenille Vest (ravelry link) inspired by Audio-Man’s version, in Lion Brand Chenille in Royal Blue. The yarn is sadly discontinued. Lastly, she is wearing her Pave the Way Shawl (ravelry link) with an original crochet edging. The shawl is made in Red Heart Roll With It Tweed in the Potpourri colorway.

Stalled – 37:10

For stalled this week, I talk about how my yarn swift may be possessed, as it would continuously fly off of what ever it was secured to and force me to chase it around the house.

Mom mentions that she stalled out several times working on her Grammercy Park KAL.
