In this episode, Lively yarn is tamed, and Abattoir is no longer offal (see what I did there?) through the magic of indigo; knitting that is no fun, but still totally worth it; and we bid a fond farewell to old friends, with audio from the Cast On archives.
Thank you, Amy Singer, for filling me in on the impact of 3D printing on the knitting world, including a 3D printed knitting machine; the Electric Eel Wheel and Electric Eel Wheel Facebook Group; and scientists knitting artery grafts on a circular knitting machine!

(Cat Bordhi and Annie Modesett appeared together once before, albeit tangentially, in Cast On 77: Personal Best.)
I’ve ordered yarn to make Cat Bordhi’s amazing Anemone Hat (Rav). I’ll be thinking of her through the making of every twirly corkscrew, and I don’t mind if the hat takes a long time to knit. Cat’s mobius cast on tutorial is below.
