Why do I knit? I was once told I look like I should be dancing in a night club and not knitting. Was this because I have pink hair and am not an old lady? So why do I knit?

K – Knowledge: because I can. My mother taught me how to knit as a young child. I grew up surrounded by crafts and saw their value as I watched them being created. It all starts with being taught. Sadly so many have a bad start at school and are put off for life. Find the right person to teach you. Once you have the basics, the options are limitless you can just keep adding new skills. The list of things you can make is endless. Learning and challenging our mind is said to keep Alzheimer’s and Dementia at bay – bonus.

Welcome to Episode 5 of the Pink Hair Girl Podcast.
These are the show notes for this episode.
I remember knitting my first shawl and it calling for a garter tab cast on and being totally confused by what this meant. Once a friend showed me how to do it, it was so simple. Since a lot of my shawl patterns call for a garter tab cast on I thought I would put a short photo tutorial here.

Welcome to Episode 4: This episode is all about socks.
I recorded this last weekend but trying out iMovie took some getting used to and then my little Mac Air was struggling with the big files but I finally got it all sorted. I played with a few features so let me know if they add anything to the podcast.
My friend Sheldene nominated Rachel as a Lead SA Hero when she cut off her hair and she was choosen as the joint Junior winner for May.
Lead SA highlights people doing things to make the world a better place. This is what they say on their website “YOU can change the world. Lead SA is a personal call to every person to make a difference. We all have a responsibility to make the world a better place. It could be as simple as making a stranger smile or as big as fighting to further the rights entrenched in our Constitution. Each act makes a difference. This website tells the stories of people who are making our country a better place.”

Whole 30 for anyone interested in the whole 30 diet/ health detox that my sister and I are doing from 9 June.
The yarn for The Geek’s socks I never mentioned last time was Nurturing Fibres Man Sock in the Airforce colourway, the yarn is 40% Mohair 40% Merino 20% Nylon (Polyamide) but it is sadly not available any more. It is such a great strong sock yarn that I am sad Carle can’t get that base any more.
