Friday Favorites

Hi friends, and happy Friday!

Things have been crazy at fiber and sustenance central this week, but wanted quickly pop in with a few new favorites:

  • I love traditional patchwork quilts, but I’m no quilter. ย So this might be the perfect blanket for me!
  • How cute is this cropped, wrap sweater — perfect for summer to fall wear, I think!
  • I’ve mentioned my love of Fruity Knitting before, but the second to last episode was particularly great. ย Andrew and Andrea interviewed Carson Demers, who just published a book on the ergonomics of knitting, and his interview gives a lot to think about for taking care of your body while you knit!
  • Not strictly knitting, but related to aches and knitting — I am a big fan of the Yoga with Adrienne YouTube channel, and she recently released a fifteen minute video for neck and shoulder pain — perfect for when your neck and shoulders get tight from a long knitting sesh! (In fact, I need to try this routine again tonight, as I’ve been having some wicked neck pains!)
  • And while we’re on the topic of self-care, I really enjoyed this post, published on Mason Dixon Knitting, on the subject of self-care and routine … again, not strictly knitting related, but a very good read!
  • And lastly, for a laugh, this post!

Alright, that’s all from me for the moment, but more to come soon (and sorry there are no pictures with this week’s post — must finish work for the day)! What’s got you excited and/or thinking this week?

  1. Cool beans! I’ve subscribed to Fruity Knitting and bookmarked the video for watching later. Same with the yoga video. I’ve also added the quilt looking knit blanket to my Wish List in Ravelry ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you are getting a little time in to stop and smell the roses…even with your busy schedule ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. I listened to the podcast on Saturday while knitting on my socks and really enjoyed it! I’ve added it to my subscribe list. I also bought the book by Carson Demers. I can’t wait until it arrives and I can learn more about keeping myself healthy for knitting.

        I’m getting through one day at a time right now. Some days are better than others. Thank you for asking! I’ve been extremely busy knitting and crocheting; however am waiting until Rainbow Baby’s Mama receives her gifts before blogging about all of them. I haven’t instagrammed or anything about them and it’s driving me crazy ๐Ÿ™‚ The package arrived at my cousin’s house yesterday so hopefully new mama will visit soon!

      2. So glad you enjoyed the podcast. I’ll be eager to hear what you think about the Demers book. Can’t wait to see your post about the baby gifts — I’m sure the new mom is going to love them!! And glad to hear that it seems like knitting and crocheting are providing some good comfort at the moment ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been thinking about you!
