Welcome to episode 35 of The Ordinary Knitter, the knitting podcast that’s (mostly) about the projects. My name is Heather and I’m @theordknitter on Twitter, @theordinaryknitter on Instagram and @ordinaryknitting on Ravelry. This week: my year in knitting, Christmas knitting goodies and a plea for help. I hope I’ve solved the variable volume issue. I wouldn’t say Audacity is second nature, but I’m getting better with it.
As I’ve already discussed in previous episodes most of the projects I mention today in my run down I won’t link to them all. You can find me on Ravelry if you want to look up anything in more detail or get in touch if you have any questions. I love hearing from you and am always happy to offer any help I can ( ha ha).

My year in knitting
2016 has definitely been the Year of the Sock, or that’s how it feels. I find them quick and straightforward to knit (afterthought/forethought heel apart). I now rarely follow a sock pattern the way it’s written as I’m too set in my ways of Judy’s magic cast on and the Fleegle heel, but if I’m doing a new weight of sock I find the stitch count of a proper pattern very useful, except when a size for a child turns out to be big enough to fit my size 7s. I’m sure I’ll do more socks this year, but for now I’m turning my attention to tops for me.
