Episode 38: Short and Skyped!

Listen here!

This episode could also be known as Ladies Of The Snit-we heard there is a podcast with that name-brilliant! . It is March. It is very cold. There is still snow on the ground. The end is not really in sight, although the days are nice and long. This fellow is in Sally’s neighborhood. He is really making her grumpy. It’s really time for this guy to have some well deserved time off.

Give this guy a vacation already!

Check out our Ravelry forum page for shared projects. Here are a few of the latest that have caught our fancy.

Velvetowls’ Calligraphy in Jacob (Hannah fettig cardigan),smurphy2’s Hestapeysa (little girl’s purple sweater with horses – lopi Icelandic construction) and her cardigan version of Aftur, Goldybear’s Wild Irish (Baby Surprise Sweater) for Jan Marie’s grandchild.

Off The Needles:

Kris: Finished her Knit Your Love shawl for Ravellenics. It’s adorable and tiny. Kris has had a decades long battle with devious gauge. She swears she will knit a gauge swatch next time.  Stay tuned.

Susan: Finished her Sugar Is Sweet by Rose Beck shawlette out of some yummy Madtosh Pashmina in foxglove. It is beautiful and wearable.And So Are You

On The Needles:

Kris: is working on the Lonely Tree Shawl  by Sylvia Bobilvia out of some beautiful red/pink/ Manos Wool Classica

Susan : Is knitting some great socks for her husband. It’s a guy thing, a really spiffy pattern by Caroline Egwar, who works at J.P Knit & Stitch out of some manly Malabrigo Sock in the Persia colorway.

One sock done!

One sock done!

Sally :Is slogging away on her Color Affection. She became disenchanted with the Olympics and abandoned them in favor of actual x-country skiing and reading. Lots of batches of brownies have been baked as well.

In The Queue:

Kris: Romi Hill shawl : Zephyr Cove Two colors with a cute little leaf at the edge.

Susan: Shawlette: She’s a Waterfall by Dani Sunshine, Cascade Falls cardigan Amanda Scheuger, Make a Wish by  Joji Lacatelli and the Boston Marathon Scarf Project blue and yellow scarves that will be given to runners at the finish line of the Marathon. Let’s cast on today! There is a group that meets Tuesday nights at the Old South Church, or you could bring your scarves to J.P. Knit & Stitch.


Kris scored yarn at the yarn and book-sale at her library: skeins of Madelinetosh Feather in the Xboyfriend colorway. And 420 yards Tosh Marino dk in Citrus. 

On The Bookshelf:
Sally: Dead Water, the new Anne Cleeves installment of the Shetland Mysteries ( It was great to be back in Shetland!) She also read the latest Flavia DeLuce , The Dead In Their Vaulted Arches

Kris’s shout out: To the listener that came to Roslindale Library book-sale, sorry we missed you!

    Kris, I tried to send a reply yesterday but I do not think it went through. It was fund to get a shout out! I am the listener who was at the sale on Friday. I grew up in Roslindale but live in Franklin now. Not that far but a bit of a ride to Roslindale. I haven’t been back in years. The ladies at the sale were lovely and suggested I have lunch at Fornax which was very good. Then I walked around the square. I rode by my old house too. The best news is that I bought a skein of Socks That Rock for $3! and I just had to buy a Friends of the Roslindale Library bag. I spent a lot of time at the library when I lived there. Thanks for the information which got me back to my roots for the day. Nancy

    Hi Nancy — Thanks so much for your comment! I’m glad you got a chance to see Roslindale 🙂 We moved here in 1989 and have really seen it grow — lots of families with young kids have come which keeps the community vibrant. They are redoing Adams Park this summer and renovating the Substation which has been boarded up since the 70’s. And we have a great farmers market on Saturdays in the summer.

    I hope you’ll come back. And congrats on that Socks that Rock! Kris
