My good friend and fellow piper, Heather, is visiting me this morning along with her 3 year old who supplied sound effects. As you regular Pipeliners know I am quite particular about sound quality on the show but I had to let that go today. If you want to smile today be sure to stay after the theme music at the end for George’s singing.

Topsy-Turvy Inside Out Knit Toys by Susan B Anderson. Artisan Books 2013 $17.95
Susan brought copies of her book to our Knitting Pipeline Retreat in the spring and of course she sold them all quite quickly. She was so gracious to sign copies of all her books and we had a trunk show that included all these designs plus some of her other popular designs.

Desert Vista Dyeworks Socks
Tip: Matching stripes perfectly. When using the Long Tail CO or any variation of it, start your co where two colors meet. I used where a red stripe met a brown stripe. The result is that I have a very thin line of red at the top of the sock and I could easily match that on the second sock.
