Because Math is Fun

If you’ve been around for  awhile, you may recall that a scandalously long time ago (back when Silk Road Socks was first up for order), I went on Lara Neel’s charming podcast, Math4Knitters.  Well now that there’s a new book, it seemed only fitting to swing back by and chat with her again.  You can listen to it over here.  Fair warning, we totally ramble!  Also, some day I will learn to talk more slowly…but that day has not yet come.

And also in the category of fair warning, the eversion of Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet, Volume II goes out tomorrow.  That means today is the very last day to get the eversion at a discount and get a free pattern with the purchase of the eversion.  So if you’ve been waiting, and you want the special preorder price, this might be the moment to make the jump.  I promise you won’t have long to wait, as I’ll be making the everison live tomorrow morning!


Aiming for once a month on these, at least until they stop being amusing.  Part of the stacks series, and as always click for the bigger version.

Books show are What is Cultural History, A History of Our Time (mine is an older version, the link is to the most recent one), and In Small Things Forgotten.

And, if you’re in the mood for a podcast, you can head over to The Yarn Thing Podcast and listen to Marly and I chat.  I’ve got a wee package of goodies to send off to whoever wins the drawing we talk about, so give it a listen.  I…I am refraining from listening because I always think my voice sounds like a deranged cricket when I hear it on a recording.

Wanna Share the Pain?

You know how when you hear a recording of yourself it doesn’t sound at all like you sound in your head?  And I don’t know about you, but I never like it.  In my head, I’m much more clever/polished/together.  When committed to tape, I become alarmingly squeaky.  Turns out I talk kinda fast too.  Oh well.  If you wanted to revel in my squeaky shame, you could head over to Knit Picks and listen to their most recent podcast.  I natter on at length.  Don’t worry though, if you don’t, I’ll never know.  In fact, that might be for the best…
