Episode 19: Cute As A Button

I wanna make buttons!


Click here for the video.  :o)

This episode includes knitting, sewing, two giveaways, and the results of my wool wash experiment.

Thank you to Lynne of the Sunshine and Bubblegum podcast for the prize I won in her Ravelry group!

Giveaway threads on our Ravelry group:
For January ~ Alpaca Cloud Fingering from Knit Picks in "Cora"
For February ~ Preciosa Tonal Worsted from Knit Picks in "Panther", "Duchess", and "Boysenberry"

My Wool Wash Experiment
The Summary:  I tested 7 different detergents with my own hand dyed, very dark red, yarn.  Only one
had some color bleed.  After additional testing, I was able to get that bleeding to stop by adding a certain amount of vinegar to the bath.

pH test strips at Amazon.

Knitting
My Miette cardigan by Andi Satterlund is in progress.
I made my little fabric strawberry buttons with this Dritz Cover Button Kit.

Sewing
Another Simplicity 1537 dress in Telio Denim Floral from Fabric.com.
Making yoga/jammy pants with Simplicity 4429 (an old pattern that I think is out of print but may be available elsewhere on the net).  I used French Terry Knit.
