This week I discuss my half and half FO’s, my continuous journey into cast on crazy and my wild (virtual)night in Norway.
In case you missed it or just want to relive it, here is a link to National Knitting Eve.
Did you watch it? Tell me your thoughts about it.
This episode of Tapgurl on the Go is sponsored by Dye2Spin.
Listen and laugh along as I talk with Ashley Wolfe of Dye 2 Spin.
This week my special guest is Ashley Ammons Wolfe the creative force behind Dye 2 Spin. We discuss the DFW Yarn Crawl and the colorway that she designed especially for this years event and her other etsy shop Knitty Knitty Bang Bang.
This week I talk about the progress and lack thereof on my current WIPS.
I also soothed my ego with self striping sock yarn from Ladybug Fiber and made good progress on a couple of socks while watching "Orange is the New Black" on Netflix.
And in early November at the Kid N Ewe festival in Boerne, Texas.
Check out her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/woolywonkafibers . She occasionally will have sale/coupon info there. But M-F she usually has pictures, or info about new pattern updates, or a link to a blog post with shop info.

It’s hot outside, so here is my list of good by the pool or staying inside soaking up the air conditioning reading/listening books:
All of the Stephanie Plum Mysteries by Janet Evanovich (I’m partial to the first 6 audiobooks) Flavor of the Month by Olivia Goldsmith Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susanne Ten Beach Road by Wendy Wax The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner Seattle Girl by Lucy Kevin All of the Jaine Austen Mysteries by Laura Levine Gypsy by Gypsy Rose Lee How I Paid for College by Marc Acito
These are some of my recommendations, what are yours?
This weeks Mojito Monday features an interview with knitting designer and re-fashioner Carissa of the Carissa Knits Blog.
And just to keep things clear...I did not ask Carissa to do this interview so that I could establish a friendship with her should I have trouble knitting one of her socks!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
