Tome Time Episode 28: Ohio IS Magical

Welcome to Tome Time, a mother and son reading and knitting podcast. Knitting content begins at 13:20. Books discussed include Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty, and The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George.

There is still time to join our #lyricalkal in conjunction with The Crafty Toads podcast. Knit anything you like and connect it to song lyrics. The KAL runs until March 15, 2017. We both have threads for the KAL in our Ravelry groups.

Dogster pops in and out. I want to knit all the socks and sweaters.

February is my month for sewing as a secondary craft and I am making progress on my Heather Dress from Sew Over It.

Running is challenging with a busy schedule. Thanks for watching and LACES (Like and comment everyday, subscribe)!

Tome Time Episode 26: Rainbow Pizza

Welcome to Tome Time. We discuss books, knitting, sewing, and other crafty goodness. Knitting content begins at 27:55.

Books discussed include: Saturn Run b John Sandford and Ctein, Grumpy Cat and Pokey, Code by Charles Petzold, and Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly.

Join us for the Lyrical KAL with The Crafty Toads, running until March 15.

Finished Objects are the Country Cable Socks by Rachel Paulsel.  They are glorious! The pattern was given to me by Samantha of The Yarn Reader Podcast and the Miss Babs Sock Yarn was given to me by Jessie of the Purls Before Twine Pocast, so this pair is extra special. These socks are my January entry into the Bookend Knits Raven Cycle KAL.

Works in Progress include Hermione’s Everyday socks out of Toad Hollow Yarn in the Teeka’s Coat colorway, my Joker and the Thief shawl by Melanie Berg in Lolo Did It and Kniterature Yarns, a Bayside Pullover by Hannah Fettig in Twisted Owl Yarn in the Brothers in Blue colorway.
Training: It has been difficult to run outside due to weather and time constraints, but I have been enjoying Yoga with Adriene on YouTube.

Tome Time Episode 27: A Little Party (Never Killed Nobody)

Welcome to Tome Time! We discuss reading, knitting, sewing, and running here every two weeks. Knitting content begins at 13:00.

Join us for the Lyrical KAL with The Crafty Toads, running until March 15.

Books discussed include: Code by Charles Petzold, Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly, and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. Join the Bookend Knits for a Raven Cycles Read-along/ Knit- along!

No Finished Objects this week! Works in Progress include Hermione’s Everyday socks out of Toad Hollow Yarn in the Teeka’s Coat colorway, my Joker and the Thief shawl by Melanie Berg in Lolo Did It and Kniterature Yarns, a Bayside Pullover by Hannah Fettig in Twisted Owl Yarn in the Brothers in Blue colorway, and some vanilla socks in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Silky Socks That Rock in the Flambeaux colorway.
I am solo this week as I show my knitting and talk about de-cluttering and fitting in ALL the crafts.  I have been tidying up my crafting supplies and realized that if I spend 20- 30 minutes each day on my ‘secondary’ crafts, I can get a lot done if I cycle through them by the month. February will be all about sewing, so stay tuned. Upcoming sewing will be a Sew Over It Heather Dress, some Ginger Jeans Leggings, and some other dress with big, fat roses.

Training: It has been difficult to run outside due to weather and time constraints, but I have been enjoying Yoga with Adriene on YouTube. I have decided to take the 12 hour option at The Beast for a Day in May.

Lyrical KAL begins on January 1st. We are co-hosting this with Helen and Mary Beth of The Crafty Toads podcast.  Helen and I am knitting The Joker and The Thief by Melanie Berg, but you can knit anything that you can relate to song lyrics.  Prizes to be announced soon.

Sewing: Ginger Flared Jeans by Closet Case Files in Cone Mills Denim from Zede’s Sewing Studio. This is the best smelling denim ever! The Republic of Chiffon Lucy Dress.

Training: I finished a half marathon in 2:35. That is pretty slow, so my time goal for Memphis is probably out the window. But, hope is the thing with feathers, so… Thanks to a generous knitting friend, I have reached my fundraising goal for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!

Thanks for watching and LACES.
