Episode 57: 80s Video Extra

Hello!

I had rather given up on the idea of podcasting again this summer, but then the spirit took me, and I had to get the camera out. I don’t have much knitting to show for my summer, but there are a few other things I had on my mind…

Til Autumn, happy knitting!

Midding cardigan knitting pattern

Midding!

Hello! I have a new pattern out! Midding is a new cardigan pattern for your needles!

Midding knitting pattern

MIDDING v. intr. feeling the tranquil pleasure of being near a gathering but not quite in it — hovering on the perimeter of a camp fire, chatting outside a party while others dance inside, resting your head in the backseat of a car listening to your friends chatting up front — feeling blissfully invisible yet still fully included, safe in the knowledge that everyone is together and everyone is okay, with all the thrill of being there without the burden of having to be.

Midding_handknit_pattern_by_Renee_Callahan

Some projects suggest a kind of sweet nostalgia. Midding is a project like that. A classic cardigan shape, with long, fitted sleeves, a straight body, and panels of open cables. This cardigan is worked from the bottom up, with raglan shaping in the yoke, and i-cord finishing at the neck and button bands.

YARN

I used Kettle Yarn Co. Baskerville DK (Exmoor Blueface wool, Gotland wool, silk; 233 m/255 yds per 100g skein) in Dawn colourway; 5 (6, 6, 7, 7, 8) skeins.
If substituting yarn, you will need around 450 (505, 555, 605, 700, 750) g/1050 (1175, 1295, 1410, 1630, 1750) metres/1150 (1285, 1415, 1540, 1785, 1915) yards of DK-weight yarn.
