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.

  • Emily -
    Caterpillar Green Yarn in the Knit City 2015 colour Shorn this Way. I bought the pattern that goes with it too.
  • Addi FlipStix 8 inch in 2.25mm, 2.5mm, and 2.75mm I am liking them but I’m finding them a bit slow.
  • Hat Trick by River City Yarns in the Canucks and Calgary colour ways. 80/20 Superwash merino Nylon 510M Skeins
  • Rylie by HiKoo 50/25/25 Baby Alpaca, Mulberry Silk, Linen sport weight grey cream and pea soup green

  • K-Rae original If sheep chewed bubble gum 438yds 75/25 wool, nylon

 

Sarah -

  • From Sweet Fiber:
    - the fab cabin tote.  I like to have a new bag for each year of Knit City and for               2015, this was mine.
    - two skeins of Cashmerino 20 in the Vintage Lace colourway. These are already in use for a test knit for Sylvia McFadden.
    - two skeins of Cashmerino Worsted. One in Smoke, one in Marshland.  Both will be for hats to make winter tolerable.
    -two skeins of the new Canadian base. One is a beautiful goldenrod colour and the other a berry red, no idea what I’ll do with either.
    - Merino Big Twist in Spanish Coin for a cushy cowl.  Pattern to be determined.
    - some glow in the dark jelly stitch markers.  No more losing stitch markers under the couch!
  • From Valley Yarn:
    - some Tosh Merino Light - one skein of Great Grey Owl and one in Heartbeat.  Both neutrals that will be used in the future to temper some of the wild goodies in my stash.
    - Hedgehog Fibres’ Twist Sock in the elusive Teacup colourway.  I’ve wanted it for so long; I’m thrilled to have it!
    -other miscellaneous items for the knitterly advent calendar with Jocelyn.
  • From the Knit City merch booth:
    - the newly designed project bag
    - the Caterpillargreen custom colourway.
  • From the UandIKnit’s booth:
    - two skeins of Julie Asselin’s squooshy Fino base in Birch and Riverbed (one each).  So dreamy together, they will soon become a shawl.  Pattern to be determined.
  • From Caterpillargreen yarns:
    - The new Fade to Black colourway and the Get Happy! pattern by Kate Atherley.  Looking forward to knitting this combo!
  • From Kristan MacIntyre:
    - a beautiful shawl pin.  It looks like an island.  I love it so.
  • an assortment of other items for Jocelyn’s knitterly advent calendar that need to be kept on the QT.  

Karla -

  • Sapphire Label Fingering Weight 75% Superwash Merino Wool 25% Nylon 100g/423m

Colour : psychedelic Onyx by Stitch Please www.stitchesbeslippin.com These are into half skeins and are dyed identically so you get exact stripes up your sock. I’ll use my Sock Architecture and Custom Socks Book to knit these up.

 

Jocelyn -

  • Aquitaine cardigan pattern by Holli Yeoh
  • Bradway Shawl Pattern by Shannon Cooke
  • The Yarn Whisperer by Clara Parkes which she signed with a lovely and personalized inscription
  • Knit City project bag
  • Knit City custom colourway Shorn This Way dyed by Caterpillargreen Yarns, these sold out in 3 minutes on Saturday morning which totally made the 75 minute wait in line before the PNE opened totally worth it!
  • Two skeins of the new base from Sweet Fiber called Canadian, the dark grey skein will be a hat for my husband (he lost the first one I made him and he’s been begging for another) and the pumpkin orange skein will be a companion hat for myself (but don’t tell my husband, he hates matchy matchy stuff like that and I’m going to make them different enough that he won’t notice….I hope)
  • Three skeins of Sweet Fiber Merino Twist DK in the Tea Leaves colourway to go with the three that I bought last year.  My plan is to use them for the Mezcal Cardigan by Thea Coleman.
  • The Cabin Tote Bag from the Sweet Fiber booth
  • One skein of Julie Asselin’s Fino base, same as one of Sarah’s but I can’t remember the name, she’ll know
  • Kristan MacIntyre’s Stacking Rings/Stitch Markers set made of sterling silver and a little bobble of gold on one of the rings. They were my major purchase this year and I’m absolutely smitten with them. So much so that when I took the picture of my “Knit City 2015 Haul” I forgot to include the rings because I haven’t taken them off since I bought them!
  • Also, I snagged a few special but secret items for my Ewe and Me Swap partner, she knows who she is and will probably have received the package by the time we record the podcast but I have to keep a few things close to my chest ;)
