Episode 29: Cold Sheep Conundrum!

Episode 29: ‘Cold Sheep’ Conundrum!

Listen Here!

Off The Needles:

Kris showed off her finished In Threes. This is an adorable little sweater with lots of practical growing potential.
Susan was madly casting off her Kara. This is another sweater designed by one of our favorites,Cecily Glowik . The process became a teeny bit obsessive, and some smart green compression gloves were modeled for us. Susan’s not sure that they helped ease the pain from so much knitting, but we are impressed by the style. She has also cast off a beautiful Age Of Brass And Steam out of some Classic Elite Firefly. This is a project that makes us all want to cast on. And it is indeed still a Free ravelry download!

ABS Kerchief in Firefly!

ABS Kerchief in Firefly!

Sally knit Susan B. Anderson’s Pig during shelter in place day during the marathon bomber manhunt. An excellent remedy for a nerve wracking day.Pig She has also knit up the Upside-Down Daisy hat (another excellent Susan B. Anderson pattern) for a tiny baby named Lily.Upside-Down Daisy Hat

On The Needles

Susan is working on On The Hill by Polo Sylvie out of  locally dyed Dirty Water Dyeworks Lillian , in the colorway  Mountainmist.
Kris is knitting a beautiful Elipses bias scarf out of some Pashmina in the nostalgia colorway and we love the way it looks.
Sally has cast on a Liesl in some bright red Blue Sky Alpaca’s worsted cotton.

In The Queue:

Sally wants to knit everything from Knit With Me by Gudrun Johnston, especially Empire and Ambrosia. She has borrowed Knitting With Icelandic Wool from the library and is seriously considering a lopi purchase. And she is eyeing Knit, Swirl! Uniquely Flattering One Piece One Seam Swirl Jackets by Sandra McIver.
Susan was  obsessed with  knitting the  Sylvia Cardigan (Another Cecily Glowik  pattern), but tried in vain to find a 3rd skein of Tosh light in the Calligraphy colorway. Soooooo- with the 2 skeins on hand, it will be either  Summer Dawn  by Andrea Black or Hannah Fettig’s Featherweight cardigan.

Stash

Sally purchased some Cotton Classic for the baby hat, Kris abstained, and Susan listened to the Stash And Burn episode 128 and regaled us with stories about going “Cold Sheep”. Can we go Cold Sheep? We’ll have to see.

On The Bookshelf:

Susan read Anatomy Of  Murder by Imogen Robertson and highly recommends it. Kris has been reading the Big Book of Mystery Short Stories. Sally read Wild by Cheryl Strayed and The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths. (Hiking and digging. what could be better for the summer?)

Have fun friends! Knit on!
