Another great podcast -- I feel like it's been forever since the last one! I'd love to be in the running for the new book. I checked out the patterns on Ravelry and they're gorgeous! I don't mind the wrong side of scarves (most of the time), but I like the idea of "reversible"...

Sorry for the removed comment. It decided to post it as "Unknown" even though I signed in through my gmail.

I like the idea of reversible scarves. I never have knit any because I don't like the good side/bad side issue.

Nancy said...

Love the look of a reversible scarf. Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

fascinating book

Random Thoughts said...

I found your podcast back in February and I love it! I am finally caught up to the most current episode. You gave me a lot of material to listen to while I worked. This book would be an awesome book to have. I love making scarves but I always have a hard time figuring out what design I'm going to use. This would make it so much easier.

I found your podcast in February and I love it. I'm finally caught up to the current episode. It was a delight to listen to while I was at work. (we're allowed mp3 players) This book would be awesome to have. I just love knitting scarves.

Sangeetha said...

i would love this book - have promised a couple of scarves to my friends, now just need to find the inspiration

piercemedeadly said...

I found your pod cast today and it was so delightful. I'm a baby knitter. My knowledge thus far is one stitch. But I listened to your story about ripping the stitches and was glad to hear that even the more experienced still have problems!

I'm subscribing.

enjoyed this episode; I hate to take out my work too.
Looks like this would be a good book.

Unknown said...

It made me feel better about my own knitting "problems" after hearing that you have knitting issues also. Reversible Scarves sounds like a wonderful book and I'd love to have a copy. MichelleQ on Ravelry

Suzanne said...

I'm super excited about Audrey's new book. You gave such a favorable review and the Knit Picks Podcast has a great interview with Audrey. I'm eager to see the patterns.

Such a great concept - the patterns are so attractive too. Thanks for the chance!

Jen said...

Yesterday I ripped out 3 sad sweater attempts and 1 scarf I never wore. I feel a little better about that now! (jenandstuff on Ravelry)

grammy robin said...

Hi Alana,
I thought I was the Queen of Rip Out but I happy to move over and make room on my throne and share it with you. Ripping out helps to complete projects and created an even greater level of knitting satisfaction. There really is no shame!!! Try it again, you'll see, it's not so bad. Keep the podcasts coming. Thanks.

penelope10 said...

I have heard from 2 other podcasters regarding Shelter and the breaking, so you aren't alone!
Looking forward to your new designs and the new book!

cinnymom said...

Thanks for sharing your knitting woes. I appreciate hearing about the good, the bad, and the ugly not because I wish folks pain but rather because that's how we as humans grow. IMHO anyway. If things were always perfect, where would the learning come from? When the time is right, I believe you will know how to move forward.

This book sounds brilliant and I would be honoured to win it!
Thanks for the giveaway :)

KCarney said...

Alana, thank you for yet another great podcast. I really appreciated hearing that even incredibly accomplished knitters like you still struggle with their knitting from time to time. Thanks, too, for introducing us to the work of your friend and fellow designer Audrey Knight!

Leigh said...

I HATE RIPPING OUT TOO! I don't think I've ever done it.

I would love to win this book double sided scarf patterns are everywhere.Love your site & podcast.

Ellen said...

The book looks great - thanks for the chance to win! As my cousin once told me, "A good knitter is a good ripper." She is a master knitter, so I always try to remember her words even though I also hate rip. I have to remind myself that I will never be happy with the finished object if I don't fix the error - now. Great podcast, as always!

Hooray for beautiful scarves!!

On another note, I hope things are getting better for you with your knitting. If it helps, the stories of your life lessons help remind me to "put on my big girl shoes" and start frogging when it's needed. Thanks for sharing every aspect of your knitting!

I would love to have a book of scarves that are pretty on both sides.

This looks like a lovely book filled with some fun knits! I'd love to win!

Jo-ann said...

I've always wanted to learn how to do double knitting. Scarves look like a cool place to start.

Incidentally this was the first of your podcasts I have listened to. (I only just found your blog). It kept me well entertained whilst building a boring webpage...

Thanks

kingcavcrotty said...

Oh that Book looks so great!!

knitalatte said...

I enjoyed listening to your latest podcast, as always very informative. I had to laugh when you talked about your mishap with Shelter. I've had a few myself. The price to pay for a super lightweight wool garment? If you think Shelter breaks easily, check out loft, just sneeze and it breaks off the needle...Looks like another great collection.

mkp said...

I would love a copy of this! Recently I have been concentrating on knitting accessories - hats, cowls, scarves - And I really enjoy your blog!

I really enjoy your podcasts! And I just peeked at this collection of scarves on Ravelry - WOW!

Robin V said...

I took a look at the scarf patterns on Ravelry - I really like the "Shading" scarf; and the "Diagonal Ribs..." scarf; and the "Duplicity" scarf... and lots of others....!

So sorry to hear about your sweater woes. I would have packed up the entire project and put it in a very very very long time-out....!

Kim said...

Love the idea of this book!

melsheljack said...

Love the podcast as usual, would like to add this book to my collection. I have had issues with Loft yarn being quite fragile and have heard other knitters say the same of Shelter, its not just you.

Thermosweet said...

Oooh, this books sounds great, I have always hated the ugly "other side" of scarves

Cecile said...

I hope your knitting mood will be better soon...
I usually weave my scarves, as I dread the wrong side of knitted ones. This book is a real treasure!

NerdNamedGinger said...

I finally caught up! I recently found your podcast and have since been working my way from the very beginning. This task has taken me about three weeks. Thanks to you I now have about 400 new (well, to me) patterns, yarns, and designers in my "favorites" on Ravelry. I'm really happy you continued podcasting. It has been most entertaining. Did I mention I'm not yet a knitter? (Yet.)
