I've been a little busy for blogging lately (there's something about this time of year, isn't there?), but I did want to pop over here to let you all know that I recently started a YouTube channel for Paper Tiger. I started watching knitting content on YouTube early this year, and I've enjoyed the way I've gotten to know some of the members of our fiber community a little better through the video format. I'm also hoping to start filming video tutorials in the coming year for certain techniques, and so the channel will be home to those, too.
I've only put up a little introductory video so far, but I'm in the process of putting together the first proper video at the moment (about Norwegian wool - see this Instagram post if you'd like to leave comments about what you're interested in hearing about). You can watch the introductory video below.
This intro is just a shortie, at not quite three minutes long. I expect future videos to be longer than that, of course, but this won't be a knitting podcast in the style you might be familiar with (with a weekly format, sharing WIPs and FOs and new yarn acquisitions and that kind of thing), and so I don't expect that my videos will be an hour long either. I'm hoping for a happy medium! I would love for the Norwegian wool video to go live before Christmas, but I'm not exactly sure when it will go up yet, so to keep up to date with that you can subscribe to the channel, which can be found at www.youtube.com/c/PaperTiger. Thank you so much to everyone who has already subscribed (!), and to those of you who've left comments on the intro video! I appreciate that so much.
In a similar vein, I've also started a Ravelry group for Paper Tiger, which can be found at ravelry.com/groups/paper-tiger. I hope the group will be a place for questions and discussion about my patterns, or colorwork in general, but I also plan to post some testing calls in the group in the coming months, because I'd like to have some of my upcoming designs test knit before I publish the patterns. So do join the group if any of that sounds interesting to you!
I'll be back very soon with some more posts. We have entered winter in Montréal this week with the season's first proper snowstorm, and so I anticipate a lot more time being spent indoors in the near future...
