Tome Time Episode 25: Less

Welcome to our show! We discuss reading, knitting, sewing, and running every two weeks. Knitting content begins at 18:00.

Books discussed include Code by Charles Petzold, Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke, The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, and Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. Join our Lyrical Kal: knit something and relate it to song lyrics. It runs from Jan 1, 2017 to March 15, 2017.

My theme for 2017 will be less: less stress and less waste. I would also like to run distances in less time 🙂

Finished Objects: Dogster’s Gloves for Christmas and a pair of shortie socks for him out of some left-over Must Stash Yarn in the OCD2 colorway. I also finished my Cafe Mocha socks by Deb Buckingham out of a coffee themed sock blank from Blueberry Chick Yarns. I really enjoyed the process of knitting from a sock blank and the socks look and feel great.

Works in Progress: My Christmas Eve cast -on was a pair of Hermione’s Everyday socks out of Toad Hollow Yarns in the Teeka’s Coat colorway.  They are so silky and glamorous I can’t stand it! My Christmas Day sweater cast on was the Victoria Diamond pullover out of some Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere in Charged Cherry.  Kay from the Bede Sisters podcast and some of her listeners all cast on sweaters on Christmas Day. I also started the Country Cable Socks by Rachel Paulsel of Night Owl Fibers in some Miss Bab’s Tarte in the Oz colorway. The pattern I won in a Yarn Reader KAL and the yarn I won in a Purls Before Twine KAL so this project is extra special. It is for the Bookend Knits Read-along Knit-along for the Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. Lastly, I cast on the Joker and the Thief shawl by Melanie Berg for the Tome Time and Crafty Toads Lyrical Knit Along with some yarns from Lolo Did It and Kniterature.

The Lyrical Kal began Jan. 1st and runs until March 15th. Knit anything you like and connect it to song lyrics!  Tome Time and Crafty Toads both have prize threads in our Ravelry groups and I will give away an Instagram prize on March 1st. Use #lyricalkal on IG to enter. Dogster will choose the winner based on creativity and charm. He likes pets and dragons if you want to pander to the judge.

Sewing: I have cut out the Sew Over it Heather Dress from some floral knit from LA Finch Fabrics.

Running: I am planning to attempt a 6 hour Ultra marathon in May!
