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.
