The girls are back after an unexpected but much needed summer break. Stuff & Things The BIPOC Make-Along, hosted by Desamour Designs and the BIPOC Makers Project is running from September 2nd through November 4th. For additional details and to see a ton of beautiful and inspiring projects on Instagram, follow @desamourdesigns, @bipocmakers, and #bipocmal2019. The romance novel that started it all for Danie is Penny Reid's Neanderthal Seeks Human, book 1 of her Knitting in the City series. Current Projects Susie has been working on an upcoming collection of shawls. She also cast on a Brioche Waffle Beanie using yarn she acquired in 2014's Iowa Sheep & Wool, Alisha Goes Around Unicorn Twist in an unknown colorway. 
In this episode, you really need to wait for it because it's so worth it.^ Danie does a balancing act, and if Susie could wink, she totally would have. Stuff & Things Simma down now!  Finished Projects Susie started and finished her Soldotna Crop since the last episode and within that same week also finished her Holly. She also finished her Life's a Peach Socks. Current Projects Danie swatched (like, *really* swatched) for a Jilted, which is her Mother's Day Cast-On. Susie worked on her The Shallow Voice of Reason Socks and her Blue Jeans & Tie-Dyed T-Shirts Socks. She also cast on a new pair of striped socks using Must Stash Yarn Perfect Must Match in the Ready Player One colorway. She also worked on her Moonquake and cast on her Mother's Day Cast-On project - the Siberian rustic shawl using a thing for string Himalayan Sock in undyed and Stained. Enhance the Stash Susie enhanced her stash with a skein of Suburban Stitcher Merino DK in the April 2019 Park Passport Yarn Club - Carrizo Plain National Monument colorway. ^No Prairie Girls were harmed during the recording of this episode.
In this episode, the girls are joined by a couple canine co-hosts. Susie is not mad at extra soccer practices, and Danie has been channeling her inner Bob Villa in lieu of knitting. Stuff & Things A big thank you to Rachel of Unraveled Designs, designer of the Outlander Shawl, who reached out to Susie to suggest an alternate edging. So kind!

In this episode, the girls are up to their usual tangents and chats. Please note that this episode was recorded almost 2 weeks ago, just as the major flooding that has devastated much of Nebraska and the Midwest was beginning.

Our hearts and thoughts are with those who have been affected and are still dealing with the aftermath of the floods.
