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.

Meet a knitter

Name: Lyndsey

Raverly alias: Lyndseyp

Other Social media? Instagram I can be found as ellekbee or BBknitworks

When and how did you first learn to knit? I first learned to knit when I was 8. My mom is an incredible knitter and I bugged and bugged her until she showed me how to cast on my first project. I made scarves for all my teddy bears. Once I got bored with scarves I wanted to learn how to make sweaters. She kindly told me I needed more practice before a sweater projects. So I gave up knitting until I graduated University and didn’t have a job…I picked up knitting again and have been obsessed ever since.

What was your first project? I learned to read a pattern and cast on a hat for my then boyfriend now husband. It is a bright red acrylic ribbed fishermen style touque. It is very wonky but made with so much love.

What is your biggest knitting disaster? I knit my husband a cardigan for his 30th birthday. I knit it as a surprise, so I was not able to take his measurements. It turned out the body is too short and the sleeves are too long. To make matters worse, the yarn I used for the button band felted so there is no saving this thing…

What are you most proud of as a knitter? My first venture into colour work was the North Shore Sweater by Tin can knits. It is the most gorgeous piece of knitting I have in my possession and always get a ton of compliments on it!

What are you favorite items to knit? Im a huge fan of knitting socks. Most of my friends and family have a pair of socks I have knit for them. Im so proud of my handiwork when they wear a pair of hand knit socks! It brings me so much joy!

Are you a process knitter or a product knitter? Depends on the project. Socks or a projects I really get into Im a process knitter. When I need to hammer out a gift or around Christmas time I’m a product knitter.

Do you have any knitting goals? Projects? Techniques? Eventually, I would like to teach myself to be a continental knitter as well as learning how to brioche. It seems like every lovely pattern has brioche and it is a bit daunting.

Why do you keep coming back to knitting? Knitting is my happy place. Knitting is my creative outlet as well as a way to create community in my neighbourhood and city. I have met so many friends though knitting and I wouldn’t give it up for the world!

Do you do any other fiber arts other than knitting? unfortunately, no. I tried crochet, but it doesn’t make sense to my A-type brain.

Do you have any other super powers other than knitting? I’m a teacher and I teach pre-K. Some days it feels like I have superpowers.

Anything else you’d like to tell the world? (shameless self promotion!) I live in Edmonton and have started a business B&B Knitworks. We are creating patterns and teaching knitting classes. Look for us on Facebook B&B Knitworks and Instagram BBKnitworks.

It’s not too late if you would like to sponsor a prize! Just drop as a line and we’d be happy to have you on board. All sponsors will be mentioned in each episode of 2017!

Ok! Here are THE RULES!

  1. Any and all gift knits will be accepted, there’s no minimum yardage, if it’s a gift it counts.
  2. Gifts knit from yarn acquired in 2016 or before get two entries, so post those FOs twice for more chances to win. (Please be honest, there’s no way for me to actually track this so I’m holding out on good knitting karma that there will be no cheating). If you knit a gift from yarn from 2017, you get one entry.
  3. Entries are quarterly, Jan - Mar, Apr - Jun, Jul - Sept, Oct - Dec. You cannot enter something finished in March in the July quarter etc.
  4. Year long FO thread is where you will open one post and keep a running tally of ALL the gifts knit in the year. Go back and edit this post as many times as you need to include all gifts.
  5. This really should be rule #1 but HAVE FUN! Post pictures of what you’re knitting on instagram with the hashtag #stashtogiftknit2017 so we can see all your projects!

All prizes will be drawn with random number generator except the full year thread winner will be the one with the most gifts knit.
