WIP Wednesday Periscope Notes…A Little Late

So yesterday I did a WIP Wednesday periscope then left town for an optometrist appointment. I didn’t have a chance to post the show notes before leaving, but here they are just a day late. The scope is titled WIP Wednesday with @bridgwaterk #yarnscope #craftybiz #katch .


Today I’m going to show you four projects I’m working on for the book.
This first one is one of the blankets in the book. It’s a toddler size and is complete except for weaving in ends and blocking. The finished sample will be a Christmas/birthday gift for my great-nephew who was born on Boxing Day two years ago. He’ll be three this year.
This second is the king size of that same pattern. The pattern will be baby, toddler, twin, double and king sized. This one is not yet assembled but here are a few of the squares. The nice thing about this blanket is it can be done with pre-selected colours or as scrap blanket making it affordable to make a king-size blanket! I chose to design it using only scrap yarn and have been able to make both without buying any extra yarn for them. This will also be a Christmas gift so I better get moving on it as it’s already November.
My book, C’Est Ma Vie! 2015 will have both crochet and knit patterns.
Thirdly, a knit triangular/crescent shawl worked from one corner across to the wide end. It’s almost my wingspan now which isn’t saying much as I’m rather short at 5’1″. I’m working this one as large as I can with one skein of yarn.
And, finally the last I will show you today is this one I’m worked on as my play swatch for the Joeli’s Kitchen Designer Bootcamp. To learn the stitch pattern I started a spa cloth which may make it into the book as well. It will depend on if I have enough time to finish all the other previously started designs for the book.
Thank you to everyone viewing live or on replay.
This broadcast is available on katch.me/bridgwaterk and will be put on the Bridgwater Crafts YouTube page later.
My first scope last Monday unfortunately had technical difficulties. Katch did not catch and my camera recorded it as portrait despite being filmed in landscape. If I can get it back to landscape, it will be uploaded to the YouTube page.
Thank you for watching and reading!

I’m Periscoping!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you heard of Periscope?

Have you tried it out?

After watching friends and colleagues broadcasting I decided to give it a go. If you missed the live scope, it’s ok-the replay is available for 24 hours on the Periscope app or at http://Periscope.tv/bridgwaterk and on http://Katch.me/bridgwaterk. I also plan to upload them to the Bridgwater Crafts YouTube Channel. Watch for the title, My First Periscope! An Introduction with @bridgwaterk #bridgwatercrafts #creativebiz #yarnscope #chronicpain.

I hope to be back broadcasting a WIP Wednesday scope!

Thank you for watching! I’ll add the link or embed the video once I figure out all this technology!

Every periscope broadcast will be accompanied by a blog post of show notes with links to anything I talk about.

My business/life goals this week are to continue unpacking from my recent move, read Chapter One of Market Yourself by Tara Swiger and to scope at least once more this week!
I hope to be back broadcasting a WIP Wednesday scope!

Thank you for watching! & reading!
