30 Stitch Guage Swatch

This is from Cheryl Oberle and I hope I have this right!

If you CO 30 stitches for a guage swatch. Measure your swatch and if you are getting more or less of the amount of stitches you need per inch for each needle size you go up or down your swatch will go up or down 1/2 and inch.
**if this is incorrect...CHERYL will let me know!**

Am I the only one having trouble downloading this episode? I can't get it from itunes or from the my podcast site. I need my Yarn Thing!! :)

I am having some serious problems with MYPODCAST.COM right now. I just deleted the episode that was posted earlier today because it was all messed up.

I just re uploaded it and now it is telling me there are some problems. Hopefully this will be fixed soon or I will just have to try again tomorrow.

Sorry all! I am really trying to get this up here...the computer powers are not letting it happen :-)

I can't download #25 either . . . but I see you are on it. You'll figure it out. These things can be soooo frustrating!

Marly, I have just started listening to your podcast and you are as good as they come. I just love you and can relate to just about everything you say. The only difference is that my dear son is grown. I wanted you to know that I gave you a shout out on my blog http://grannyshippiethreads.blogspot.com and I hope that all of my readers give you a listen.
Peace,
Laura

Glad to see I'm not the only one having problems--let us know when this episode is ready, Marly! I enjoy listening to your wonderful laugh!

Last night (1/29) the download wouldn't work. Now (1/30) the new episode is not there, on iTunes, to try to download. :-(

Yarn Thing said...

Okay, I deleted the episode and had to re-record almost 30 minutes of it! AUGHHH. However, IT IS UP!! Finally, I have all the kinks worked out and I hope it was worth the wait :-)

Enjoy and let me know what you think :-)

Where can I find a baby /child's rolled brim hat pattern? Any online? (I've got my first granddaughter to knit for now and well, this would be a fun knit project)

Love your podcast, it makes me day when you have uploaded a new one. I like your encouraging crochet, fashionable, updated, non-granny looking projects. Keep up being the crusader for fabulous crochet patterns.

Hugs from Oklahoma,
Denise

Hi Denise!!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Itty Bitty Hats book by Susan B. Anderson!! It is simply the best book for little baby up to 4 year old hats!

The rolled brim hat I made is from that book. I am telling you, especially if you have a little grand baby on the way...YOU HAVE TO GET THIS BOOK!!

There is also a new one our called Itty Bitty Nursery...equally as cute and definately a must have!

You go girl...let me know how it turns out :-)

Way to go, Marly! I'm so glad you got your submission turned in to Interweave Press :D

I hope to see you at Knit Knack soon!!
