Steph is the Knittingsamurai on Ravelry and Instagram. There is Ravelry Discussion Group for this podcast Knitting Samurai Plus 1 please join! Feel free to start any topic you’d like in there.

If you want to catch up on the episodes released prior to this, you can either go to the to see life before Ro. Or you can go part way back to the beginning of the Plus 1 adventure, that started with Ro’s birth. Episode 1 is available here… the Knitting Samurai Plus 1 Episode 1.

Wordpress: http://knittingsamuraiplus1.wordpress.comwill have the 10 most recent episodes, and feed them to ITunes.

Knitting Time:

Vivid by TinCanKnits with Berroco Vintage in US size 7s, 4.5mm needles. 17th Square in progress.
Opal Socks I love: in Opal 4-Fach colorway 7126 Maurer using US size 0s - mm needles for a 2x2 toe up Rib. 32sts cast on for the toe.

The 2nd Twin's T-Shirt Vest by Sam Lamb for Jackie's little ones. Using Into the Whirled Uluni in the Courtly Frogs colorway and Louet Gems Sport Weight in Green Jay colorway.   US size 7s - 4.5mm needles.

Cast on While Listening to Craft Lit used to be my favorite Audiopodcast.  Went away for a couple years, and just picked it back up.  Just as wonderful! The Martina Behm's new pattern Tubularity!  Using US size 3s - 3.25mm needles.  First section wth Jill Drapper Makes Suff Splendor Sock Yarn in Spinach.  4 Colors of Miss Babs Yummy Superwash Sock & Baby Yarn as well as an Inspiration Dyeworks.  6 sections rather than the 7, have full skeins so I'll divid total yardage by 6 rather than 7 to know how much to use of each.

Socks for Dad in Regia Snowflake Colors color way 7709 using US 0 - 2.0mm needles for a 2x2 Rib. Blips of color, not fair isle effect or a colorwork effect of any sort to my eye.
Sockhead Hat! with Rhinebeck Yarn! double intention. Sockhead hat by Kelly McClure using Into the Whirled Ulundi Yarn in the October 2013 Club Colorway 221B. Using US size 2.5 - 3.0mm needles. We'll see.

Questionable Socks?
