Harder Than It Oughta Be

  • In knitting, other crafts, work, life in general…
  • learning how to do it in the first place
  • learning how to do new aspects of the craft (lace/cables/etc)
  • When what you want to knit is more challenging than you’d thought/hoped/imagined
  • Patterns that are almost perfect, but you have to tweak them somehow to make them what you really want/ patterns that aren’t exactly what we want, so we try to modify them
  • Tools that are almost good enough, but not quite
  • FOs that didn’t turn out quite right, so we pretend that they’re fine and/or make them what we want somehow
  • The Rules to Intarsia and Fair Isle.

  1. What a precious little snowflake of a podcast you have! I love listening to you two as I scrapbook my babies’ Birth Stories and sip my half-caff, sugar-free, soy milk, 101 degrees, pumpkin spice caramel macchiato (foam on the side). (smiley emoticon here plus some blinking hearts).

    Seriously, love your podcasts. Thanks!
