Commuter Knitter - Episode 80 - Words, Jen!


This week I chat about the right side to place buttons, test out a luxury yarn, and review Sock Architecture.  Enjoy!

Test driving Zealana AIR Marle yarn in a pair of Fingerless Mitts.  Thank you to Zealana and Yarn Sisters for providing a ball of this luxury yarn for my review.  You can find a detailed review, with photos on the blog.

Road Maps
In light of ALL the socks I have on the needles that I discussed last week, I thought it appropriate to review Sock Architecture by Lara Neel of Math4Knitters blog.  You definitely will hear more about this book in the weeks to come as I give a few of the heels and toes a try.  Thank you to Cooperative Press for providing a copy of the eBook for review -- and a copy for you, too.  Enter to win a copy in the Commuter Knitter Podcast Ravelry group.

Check out the Ravelry group for a chance to win a skein of the yarn and a set of gnome stitch markers.
