Episode 5 of the Sapphires N Purls Podcast

Welcome to Episode 5!  In this episode, as always, I have magazine reviews.  I had a request to give more details on the particular patterns I mention, such as what kind of yarn is used, etc.  So, I have included what yarns are used and the names of the designers for each of my favorite patterns from each magazine.  Also in this episode, I review a few books: Hattitude, Vogue Knitting Shawls and Wraps, and The Knitters Book of Wool.  And it's time for Girls Night In.  I've decided to change this a little bit.  Previously, I just talked about whatever project I planned to work on, usually something I'd started ages ago and was trying to finish; now I'd like this to be kind of a knit along feature.  I'll tell you what the project is, and where you can find the pattern.  Of course, you are not obligated to participate.  I'm just putting it out there, and if you would like to knit what I am knitting, great!  Along the way, I'll talk about how far I've gotten with the pattern, problems I've encountered and the like.  Below are links to everything I talk about in this episode.  Enjoy!
