Episode 169: Orange You Loved

Errata: Please ignore the bit about my Shard yarn not having a long enough repeat between the orange sections. I realized after recording that I had misread the pattern. I’m still pleased with how mine is turning out, but the colorway would have worked perfectly with the pattern as written!

Finished Spinning:

Curry Up BFL fiber from Yarn Geek Fibers

Steampunk Merino Silk gradient from Fiber Optic Yarns

Falkland fiber from Hello Yarn


Finished Knitting:

Boot Strap Socks by Lara Neel in Hazel Knits Artisan Sock, Coveralls colorway

Afterthought Heel Sock by Laura Linneman in Spun Right Round Sport Sock, The Walkers colorway

Spacious OMG Heel Socks by Megan Williams in Berry Colorful Yarning Saturated Sock


In Progress Knitting:

Shard by Romi Hill in Another Crafty Girl Strong Sock, The Vast colorway, for her knit along in the Another Crafty Girl Ravelry Group

    Oh my goodness! What a surprise! I am not surprised at all that knitters did that for you. We love you, we enjoy your video podcast, we support all you do for us. And knitters are awesome and generous people. I must say that I was in tears long before you were. Thank you for assuring us that you plan to be around for a while, as I know that doing the podcast takes up more time that I can imagine.

    Hi, check out our new color way on our FaceBook page and on our website! I think you will enjoy it. The Surprise is a favorite at The Clay Purl! Hope to see you in Nashville soon!

    I just finished watching this and got choked up along with you. In the few months since I’ve discovered your podcast (thanks Knitting Pipeline) you’ve given so much to me. I love your honesty and am awed by your artistry. My current knitting project is housed in one of your bags that I was lucky enough to snag (botanicals). I look forward to sharing many more episodes and shop updates with you. It would be wonderful to meet you in person some day.

    Oh, Amy Beth, what a great treat to be able to see you open this great gift and see the overwhelming reaction from you. You so deserve every bit of it for sure. You are bigger than life to many of us and are so deserving of ever ounce of space. I so enjoyed the podcast and seeing all you have done. I always seem to learn something from you every time I watch a podcast. May you have many more podcasts to come. And I’m so sorry about the tax system. Having been in business myself I know how awful it can be when you are successful. I won’t get on my soapbox about it but to say keep up being so successful dear lady.

    Wow! What an episode! From “last confession” to “taking up space”, I was educated, entertained and moved. You truly are the best!
