CraftLife Episode Eight – Crafting For Good – Part Two

Posted in Podcast tagged , , , , , , at 11:19 pm by treacleandinketsy

I had an absolutely lovely time va/stay-cationing with my family in and around my home town of Newberry, South Carolina.

If saving the world at the point of an animated gun is your idea of a good time, I might peg you as a Call Of Duty: Black Ops player.

Yes, I went and did it. I made the cut! And, you can too. Locks of Love and Pantene Beautiful Lengths are two places you might want to consider sending your donation.

Before "the cut"...

... and after.

1 hr post-donation. Grabbing a quick pic in the the bathroom to shoot to my bff.










If you did NOT want to knit in public with me on WWKIP Day, you could have joined me for a little cruise on Lake Murray.

Though Treacle and Ink on Etsy has been shamefully neglected lately, it is all due to preparations happening in the background for Treacle and Ink Goes Pink for breast cancer research fundraising in the month of October.

The Ravelry rumor mill reports that a magazine full of Jane Austen inspired knitwear will be coming out late this fall! I read about it in this thread.

CraftLife Episode Seven – Crafting for Good – Part One

Posted in Podcast tagged , , , , , , , at 3:39 pm by treacleandinketsy

After this very busy week of unexpected overtime, and unexpected knitting, I wasn’t able to get a full podcast together for you.  But I didn’t want to leave you with nothing.  So, instead of a full episode this week, I present you with a mini episode – part one of a two parter.

Many thanks for the lovely comments from Lori of Happycrafter 207, and Martine of iMake.

Up-and-coming sweater designers might like to check out the I Knit Guernsey design competition.

Need yarn, and need it fast? I had great turnaround time with the skein of Apl Light I ordered from Covetedyarn.com.

I’m just about finished with the frog from Amy Gaines’ Knit Animal Friends Amigurumi Set, and I am quite pleased with the results. AND… the Beehive Booties are done!

Looking for ways to get involved in crafting for good? Check out Talents of Sisters and M.E. Research UK.

CraftLife Knitters Theatre brought you “The Elves and the Shawlmaker”. You can read the original story that inspired this adaptation here.
