Knit Up and Dye Episode 69 - That Moment When...



This week I share a lot of wonderful mail I received, cover ways to correct weak ribbing, discuss choosing the right yarn for a project, update you on my progress with my DAL project Farmhouse Shawl, as well as all my other WIPS, and detail some of the upcoming and proposed activities. Come join the fun!

Dedicated to Arthur & Maggie.

Privacy Alert Reminder

Okay folks, this is a repost of a blogpost from May 2017, but it is an important one and one that we should all be aware of and pay attention to. We all know that privacy is an illusion in the technical age, but are you aware that there is a free website out there that allows you to look up anyone and get current and past addresses, phone numbers, as well as a list of all relatives and associates? NOT COOL.

The website is TruePeopleSearch.com - go, check it out, but be prepared to feel violated.

Then, do this: REMOVE ME! You don't have to be exposed. You don't have to be at risk. This is a violation of your privacy, and a great tool for anyone looking to steal identities.

Believe it - I'm no longer on it. Neither is most of my family. Searches indicate that minors are not listed.

PSA complete. Soap box vacated. Thank you for your time and attention.

Knit Up and Dye Episode 68 - Stay on Target



Sort of a double episode; we start in the studio just catching up on project progress, upcoming events, the design-along, etc, then move to the kitchen where I do a little dyeing and you get to learn a little about how minor changes to temperature, amounts of water, and acid can affect the results.
