Carrying the Torch - Episode 16 - The Knitmore Girls

Team Knitmore Badge

Listen here:

On the Needles:

Gigi does Tai Chi. And some Olympic Knitting. Gigi is working on her Chic Knits Basic Chic Pulli and Jasmin is plugging along on her Ribbi Cardi. (Changes can be found later on the Ravelry project page.) Gigi will be setting in the zipper on Jasmin's Ribbi Cardi.

Jasmin is alternating Olympic Knitting with a little spinning. Pigeonroof Studios Superwash Merino in "Mushroom Caps".

Mother Knows Best:

Safety first! Alternate knitting with other tasks to reduce risk of repetitive stress injuries. Remember to ice.

If you must take an anti-inflammatory/painkiller, do, but put. Down. The. Knitting. Be safe.

When Knitting Attacks:

Being brilliant is not genetic, and Jasmin is living proof.

  1. Hi grrls, hope to see you at wool auction this Sunday. You mention "The Boar's Head" in Carmel as Clint Eastwood's place. There is a Boar's Head, and there is also The Hog's Breath, which USED to be Clint's, long ago. If you get into town early enough, I recommend Jeffrey's in Carmel Valley, at Mid Valley Shopping Center...the absolute best place for breakfast, ever, anywhere!

  2. Am I the only one unable to download this episode from iTunes?

  3. Maybe you could try installing the most recent version of iTunes?

  4. I love your podcasts, and am listening to them chronologically from the beginning. I don't want to miss a word, but sometimes in order to hear Jasmin I have to turn up the volume so loud that Gigi's voice makes my ears bleed. Am I the only one with this problem? thanks for a amusing, informative podcast!

  5. Hi Anonymous!

    Sorry about the balance issues! I mix the sound and I'm still learning where our individual volume levels need to be.

    I promise as you go along, the sound improves!

    Knit more!
