Twitter Chat Instructions:

I started a new Twitter ID for this chat it’s @cloudynatknit. But you don’t have to follow me to participate in knit chat… all you have to do is the following.

  1. Sign up for a twitter account if you don’t have one (http://twitter.com)
  2. On November 18, 2010 at 5:00 Pacific Standard Time type in a search for the ‘hashtag’: #knitchat
  3. Chatter away about knitting. The main topic for this chat will be… “Christmas Knitting”
  4. I’ll have a few #’ed questions for us to answer during the chat. I’ll post them to the Cloudy Chance Fiber Blog ahead of time if you want to do your ‘homework.’

Can’t wait to see you there.  I’ll try to post up on Ravelry in both the Cloudy with a Chance of Fiber forum as well as other threads to generate even more interest in the chat. Hopefully the twittering of knitters will fill the air. See you there ;)

Episode 12

Greetings, fellow needlers! This is Natalie. I came home in such a sour mood, didn’t feel like podcasting, but I put myself to task… git ‘er done, I said. And you know… after sharing with y’all, I’m in a much better mood.
Rabbit Mnemonic for Single Crochet: (Made some adjustments because what I said in the podcast may not have made a lot of sense :))
1.) Make a chain (or a series of rabbit holes)
2.) Insert the hook into the 2nd stitch from the right (Go into the 2nd rabbit hole from the right)
3.) Pull the working yarn through this hole from the back (Pull one of the rabbits out of the hole)
4.) You have two loops on the hook (Now you have two rabbit friends)
5.) Pull the working yarn through the back of these two loops (bring the another rabbit through both of the friends. He takes these friends away)
