Description

In this episode, the girls are back together and in front of the mic! Susie is moved, and Danie has been crocheting like the wind.

Stuff & Things

Susie is excited to announce the release of her Directional Socks pattern!

Events

The Mid-Plains Fiber Fair is April 21-23, 2017, at the York County Fairgrounds in York, Nebraska!

Finished Projects

Danie finished a knit washcloth. 

Susie finished her Earl Grey Socks, a pair of fingering weight baby bonnets, and a pair of worsted weight baby bonnets (one knit from leftovers from this cardigan).

Current Projects

Susie worked just a little bit on her Vedai, knit her Timber Bay almost to the crown decreases,  and continued on with her Downpour Socks. She also started a Serenata Shawlette out of handspun from Sarah/mrsshoo, and a second pair of Atlantic Current Socks using Marigoldjen Yarns BFL/Nylon Sock in Merry & Bright. She also worked quite a bit on her Oh! Scrap Blanket, finishing 5 squares for a total of 19 done out of a projected 63.

Danie worked on her WeekEnder Hexi Blanket, started her Kiku Monkey using the Chinese New Year Monkey pattern, and she picked back up a pair of knit socks.

Enhance the Stash

Susie's stash was enhanced with a skein of With Pointed Sticks Fountain Pen in Sunsets on the Eastside colorway. She's planning on knitting a Luna Viridis, and it may be her 2017 Mother's Day Cast-On, if she can hold out that long.

KISS

Susie shares a bit about her packing/moving/unpacking experiences and things she found helpful for downsizing during the process, and the girls both talk about toy-wrangling/purging they've used.

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! Finished Projects Hahahahaha....None finished projects. Again. Current Projects Susie worked on both of her Life's a Peach socks again (this one and this one).

Episode 135 - The Accurate Episode
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. We mention the evacuation of a local lake community briefly without knowing the extent of the evacuations and hardship to come. Our hearts and thoughts are with those who have been affected and are still dealing with the aftermath of the floods. Stuff & Things Susie will be attending DFW Fiber Fest again this year, April 4th - April 7th in Irving, Texas. Finished Projects Susie finally finished her kid's hat - The Stockholm Hat out of Malabrigo Rios in the Green Apple colorway. Danie finished her Weekender sweater. Current Projects Susie cast on the Outlander Shawl out of frabjous fibers & Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter in Pennyworth and Sleeping Gryphon. She also picked back up her pair of Walnut Street Socks, cast on her second Life's a Peach Socks, and worked more on her Holly.  Danie worked on her own Walnut Street Socks aka her Chicago Socks.  Enhance the Stash Susie enhanced her stash a skein of Six and Seven Fiber Soybean in the Barista colorway as well as February's Park Passport Club skein of Suburban Stitcher Merino DK in the Sequoia & King's Canyon National Park colorway. Danie enhanced her stash by dyeing up three new gorgeous sweater quantities. Project Reconsideration Susie is reconsidering her Ryo. Future Projects Danie is in the early stages of planning a fingering weight summery top.
Episode 123 - PGP: Whatcha Been Knitting?!
In this episode, the girls catch up on what all they've been knitting lately. Danie knits for not-her-baby, and Susie makes peace with the fact that she's only going to shrink from here. Events Susie will be at DFW Fiber Fest April 5th-8th in Irving, Texas. If you will be too, let her know! And don’t forget the on-going Loosey-Goosey Sweater KAL! Finished Projects Danie finished a couple of #notherbaby knits: her (but not *her* hers) Baby Hat and her Pink Better Than Baby Booties. Susie finished her Tracie. Current Projects Danie started a Baby Verebrae using Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop. She worked a little on her Daeyln Pullover, and on her 2018 New Year Socks. She also started a blanket for the Ravellenics. She also started a test knit for Greg/KnittingDaddy's new design called Smoke in the City Hat using Malabrigo Rios in the Aquamarine colorway. Susie finished two more squares on her Oh, Scrap! Blanket. She also started a Fly Away blanket using Plymouth Yarn Worsted Merino Superwash Solids, and the first two colors she's working with are Dress Blues Navy and Primavera. She also worked on (and re-worked) her Winter Remix Hexi Socks, and started a pair of Zigzagular Socks using Suburban Stitcher Glitter Sock in the Blonde Squad. She also got Ryo to the point where it's joined for knitting in the round, and she's been chugging away on her Berlin Soft.  Enhance the Stash  Susie acquired a skein of Ines from Yoshi and Lucy in the Cheshire Cat colorway. She also had her birthday wish granted in the form of a Fringe Supply Co. Field Bag, the orange one exclusive to PurlSoho.
