Knit Vlog No. 13 | Save a Horse socks

Note: there are affiliate links in this post. Thanks for your support of Knit Vlog!

Knit Vlog is back with lucky episode number 13! In this episode I go into some detail about how I knit my socks on small circular needles as I share the story of my Save a Horse socks.

So, without further ado, here is Knit Vlog Number 13 | The Save a Horse Socks

If the embedded player isn't working, go directly to the YouTube video here. 

You might have noticed a new format for Knit Vlog: now each episode is dedicated to a specific project. I thought it would make it easier for those of you looking for details about individual projects and I thought it would also be neat to document my knitting via project for my future self when I'm looking back on what I've made. 

I LOVE this new format and hopefully you do, too!

Knit Vlog No.12 | The Bunny Hat

Okay, okay, it's time to admit it: I've crashed and burned with VEDA. Note to self: no vlogging every day is going to happen during the busiest month of the year for this family.

However, I do have a new Knit Vlog to share with you. This episode tells the story of the Bunny Hat. Enjoy!

If that isn't working, you can go directly to my YouTube channel and view Knit Vlog No.12 here.

Knit Vlog No. 11 | Morning & Afternoon

Hello, friends! I've challenged myself during the month of April to participate in Savvy Sexy Social's VEDA, or Vlog Every Day in April, challenge for youTubers who want to get some practice and hone their video skills. I've got MUCH to learn, but I having some fun and am making improvements in how I do things.

It does mean that while I'm focusing on the YouTube side of things this month I'm not finding as much free time for the blog. I do apologize for that, but I'm having so much fun that I hope you'll join me over on my YouTube channel and check out what I am doing over there.

In the meantime, I've recently shared another Knit Vlog, this one even includes some homeschool content.

Knit Vlog No. 10 | All is right in my world again

Oh, self striping sock yarn, I love you, I've missed you, and I wonder why I ever knit socks with anything else? Yes, friends, after all that crazy with the Animal socks (which I LOVE and wear, by the way, despite how knitting them frayed my nerves) I have returned to my old, comfortable love: striped socks.

In this episode we have a park day, I knit some socks, and we all pretend we don't see that large pile of laundry on the dresser behind me.


PS - if you can't view it here, try viewing it over on my YouTube channel. I'm trying to grow the channel and I'd love for you to subscribe if you like what you see there and feel it is a good fit for you.
