Knitter's Curiosity Cabinet Vol. III is a prime example of simulacrum. From natural paraphernalia to collections, from prints to knitted items, this book displays a palimpsest of simulacra. Oh, and the knitted patterns are exquisite, too. Join me in today's episode to see more.
I'm knitting these projects:
Trillian by Martina Behm in Quaere Fibre "Vincent and The Doctor"
Vertex Cardigan by Carol Fuller in Cascade Heritage 150 in the Cerulean colorway
Whirlpool Socks by Laura Nelkin in Schaeffer Yarns Anne

My latest episode!
Recorded Sunday, June 22, 2014
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy identifies three stages through which civilizations--and, I posit, knitters--pass: Survival, Inquiry, and Sophistication.
I'm currently knitting Martina Behm's Trillian shawl; simultaneously, I am exploring theoretical ins-and-outs of the knitting galaxy. (Quaere Fibre, Vincent and the Doctor colorway, US 3 / 3.25mm needles)
I'm also working on my Vertex Cardigan, designed by Carol Feller, and using Cascade Heritage 150, Cerulean colorway.
I've begun my first beaded project, Laura Nelkin's Whirlpool Socks, using Schaffer Yarns Anne in an unknown colorway and US 1 / 2.25mm needles.
I show off my Sherlock Swap goodies and a chemo cap of my own design (Jarbo Garn Tropik).
Finally, join me for Story Time! I read the second half of Chapter 6 of Three Men in A Boat.

Check out this episode!
I simply had to get out this episode before I lost my voice. Success!
Today I flash my stash and chatter about knitting. Soon I'll get back to some lit theory and some knit theory, as well as story time! But for now I had a lot of fun showcasing some of my favorite yarns and sharing a little Geeky Sneak Peek, featuring the Trillian pattern by Martina Behm and some deliciously geeky Quaere Fibers in the Vincent and Doctor colorway.

Check out episode 18!
Are you an obsessive planner? Do you agonize over finding the perfect pattern and yarn combination?
Getting started on a new project is the hardest part of the knitting process for me. How about you? Visit the knit.theory Ravelry thread to tell us how you overcome knitter's block and regain your knitting mojo. Also share your favorite parts (or least favorite parts) of the knitting process.
In this episode I share a few tips on how I pushed my way through knitter's block and put yarn on my needles. I show you some inspiring yarns and share some Georgia sunshine.
