Seeking inspiration - Episode 9 - The Knitmore Girls


Listen here:

On the needles:

Gigi- checkerboard socks out of Casbah in Monarch

Jasmin- still working on the Blackberry Swirl socks, and has cast on the Adamas shawl out of Colrain Lace in Grape Jelly on size 4 needles.

Gigi is going to cast on her Somoko yarn. Pattern will be the Curved Lace shawl from Victorian Lace Today

When Knitting Attacks:

Gigi needs a bout of startitis. She's out of interesting UFOs. Jasmin needs to finish an 8 year old UFO.

Mother Knows Best:

Spit splicing. A good idea, but spit is icky, and so is chewing on yarn. Use a shotglass, dip your joined section, and rub between your hands. This way, your garment stays spit-free!


WorldWide Knit in Public Day! Saturday, June 14th. We'll be at Santana Row from 1PM- 4PM. Be there!

Seasonal Knitting:

What do you knit in the summertime? We knit socks, lace, and microfiber ribbon shells.

Jasmin needs to finish her Tempting shell.


  1. Thanks for a lovely podast to listen to while knitting. Gigi, please keep us updated on your Curved Lace Shawl as some of us in the Monterey Bay (and Monarch Knitting in Pacific Grove) Ravelry group are knitting that shawl.

    Very inspiring podcast. Love the picture of the fuscia on your site. Fuscias love the humidity in this area. Susan93940 on Ravelry

  2. Hi Gigi and Jasmine! Just gave your latest show a listen..thanks for the fun! Just thought I would let you know about the Knitting Olympics. Originally the idea of the Yarn Harlot, it was done in the winter since she is a Toronto girl and of course, Canada is known for hockey and other wintery sports. She talked about this on her on her blog dated January 18, 2007. She said that maybe the Crocheters should do the summer Olympics!

    I am finishing up the plain grey socks my Dad asked for as a Father's Day present. He wears a size 14 shoe, so that is no small feat (or feet..ha, ha)

    Thanks again for the fun show and I am looking forward to the next one! ~Renee
