Relentless Knitting Podcast

Welcome to the Relentless Knitting Podcast! We’re so happy you've found us. We are two science teachers who knit based out of the beautiful Okanagan valley in British Columbia Canada. The goal of this podcast is to share our love of the fibre arts and foster community. Our focus will be knitting with flares of other hobbies and interests. We are both recent first time moms and we’ll be sharing some of our adventures in mommyhood. We own Relentless Knitting Company and are contracted by our local yarn store to teach knitting classes. Find us on facebook, twitter and the web at www.relentlessknitting.com and join our group on Ravelry - Relentless Knitting Company.

Karla
Explorer vest I want to use all the lighter colour that are at the end of the skein in the body so I stopped knitting top down and cast on bottom up. I did a 3 needle bind off. 

Camp Out Fingerless mitts I wanted the teal colour for around my fingers and there's only one length of it in the ball so used the ball winder to find the middle of the green and split the ball in two. I'm knitting these two at a time. Not super happy with the thumb gusset. Feel it should be bigger but I'm just knitting as written. 

Best laid plans

Emily-   Wash/ flick card then spin that fleece then maybe make Pumpkin Ale by Ysolda Teague
practice on rambouillet

cloth diapers, curtains. 

Karla -  Would like to do a sweater. Currently have Blue Sand Cardigan by La Maision Rililie in hibernation. Would also like to do Inland by Jane Richmond.
