145 Venn nothing else will do

The most interesting part of a Venn diagram happens at the intersections between sets.

We start the podcast with a recipe for a surprisingly healthy cake. Or, as my granddaughter calls it, CAKE!!!! Because who does not love CAKE!!!

The video of the livestream on shawl wearability is on Crowdcast (Patron only.)

I can’t stop knitting these. They are just so pleasing.

Paint Pan Socks are a bit “just one more row”.

Lots of great capsule wardrobe history here.

Capsule Venn inspiration, from Liz Von Villas.

My Capsule Venn is shaping up, thusly: Informed Simplicity, as characterized by The Maker’s Atalier. Loving this shirt, and this dress in particular.

David Rose Style , because, who doesn’t want his knitwear collection? I’m not looking to copy, so much as be inspired by. Inkwell, which I have longed to knit, fits somewhere in there.

And possibly… Japanese Horror Film meets Spooky Little Girl. Yeah. I’m still working on this one.

I’m a serial maker of podcasts, and many things that are not podcasts. I love playing with yarn, fibre and cloth. I will never accept that furniture in my living room only goes two ways. Almost every night, I dream about houses.

    Hi Benda! LOONG time listener, furst time commenter. Welcome back & thank you for coming back! Love your paint pan socks. I’ve read that color dominance occurs because one yarn travels further than the other to get knit/worked and therefore that stitch is slightly bigger, which results in color dominance.
