Episode 3 of the podcast talks about a couple of new to me yarns, a closer look at the Farmer’s Market Tote, and my current WIP.

My current work in progress uses a new to me yarn I’m really excited about: BzyPeach’s 100% pima cotton in the Mythical Flying Reptile colorway (it’s gorgeous!). Here’s a sneak peak of my new project:

I try out Lion Brand’s Cotton Comfy Blend and Cotton Candy Blend yarns. I give both yarns a generally good review, but definitely prefer the Cotton Comfy Blend. It’s a cotton yarn that isn’t super splitty, which was a pleasant surprise!

And lastly, I talk about knitting the Farmer’s Market Tote. The Farmer’s Market Tote is a free pattern I offer with a picture tutorial that walks through each of the steps. You can grab the free pattern here.
