Episode 28 Have Yarn, Will Travel

Bonjour/hi and welcome to episode 28 of STV-described ‘very popular’ Tipsy Knits! This episode is chock full of travelling and stash acquisitions, so prepare to be SPAMMED to the max from two different timezones.

In Our Glasses
Pip’s enjoying a cheeky glass of Tekena courtesy of Perth Festival of Yarn, and a newly root canal-ed Cia is drinking Cardamom Macchiato tea from DAVID’s Tea.

On & Off the Needles

Cia has finished both her So Faded Sweater AND a Sunset Highway sweater since last episode, and is now working on her Tits (Vertices) Unite shawl. Meanwhile, Pip has cast off plenty of her projects from last episode; a Sirena capelet and her Nature’s Shades Gamaldags, as well as a Shore Hap, a Sockhead Slouch Hat and a Lichen Hat. She’s about to cast on her own Sunset Highway using some purchases from Perth Festival of Yarn (#PerthCastOn y’all!), in between working on her Hogmanay vanilla socks (a re-cast on of a project she frogged earlier this year).

SPAM
Right. The hauls.

Cia’s personal yarn haul from Canada

Cia went on a Canadian kick in Montreal, and brought back yarn from Koigu, Artfil, Julie Asselin and Biscotte Yarns, as well as cute stitch markers from Twill & Print.

The Travelling

When in doubt, take your Oracle shawl to Montreal! 

We give a rundown of our travelling antics. Cia chats Montreal, Pip chats Perth. Simple!
