Episode 001: The One with All the Firsts

Posted by Jessie Knits Podcast at 5:37 AM 0 comments
First episode! I take a lengthy amount of time to introduce myself, my knitting journey and give a bit of a weekly update.
The Knitting - 14:50
Because this is a new podcast, I have no finished objects to share. 
I'm currently working on (in some sort of a rotation) Martina Behm's Hitchhiker, Thea Colman's Egg Nog and finally, for the Autism Awareness "It's OK to be different" KAL hosted by Emily from Fibretown podcast, I'm working on a Sockhead Hat by Kelly McClure.
Apparently, 2014 will be the year of the blanket as my future plans include casting on the Twinkle Twinkle Blanket by Helen Stewart as well as the Hourglass Throw by Anne Hanson in madelinetosh Tosh Vintage, Antler color way. 
Stash Enhancing Goodies - 38:19

New Beginnings

Posted by Jessie Knits Podcast at 5:10 AM 0 comments
Hello everybody and welcome to the blog for the Jessie Knits Podcast! This blog is where I'll be posting and sharing all of the episodes so stay tuned.

What can you expect from Jessie Knits? We'll have the traditional bits included in many knitting podcasts such as weekly recap/chatter, FOs, WIPs and future plans. There will also be some enabling/stash enhancing and I'm going to talk each episode about the books I'm reading as I'm a long time book lover.

Looking forward to discussing good knits with you all!
