Finished Projects

Susie finished both her TGV and her Elizabeth Shawl, bringing her Stash Dash 2014 total to 1275 yds.

Current Projects

Danie worked on her Lintilla, and her Zigzagular Socks. She also started her own Tan House Brook Shawl, and it is consuming her knitting time and thoughts. She is adding beads, her first beaded project, and it is lovely!

Susie picked back up her Tan House Brook Shawl and is looking forward to getting to the lace and textured sections. She also added an inch or so to her Hitofude.

Future Projects

Susie is looking forward to casting on Bramble Fern for her Camp Loopy 2014 Project 1 on Sunday, June 1st.

Danie is surprising herself by planning a fingering-weight cardigan.

Enhance the Stash

Danie got her hands on some gorgeous yarn – The Flying Kettle’s Montgolfier in the Mulligrubs colorway.

Current Projects

Danie made good progress on her Lintilla, and is zooming along on her Zigzagular Socks. She started spinning her Countess Ablaze fiber in the Ice Queen colorway, and it is pure magic.

Susie worked on her myriad shawls: TGV and Tan House Brook ShawlElizabeth is still in timeout, but will be picked up in the next week. She also casted on her Hitofude. She has had a few false starts, but will be casting on for what is hopefully the final, and successful, time.

Wear Report

Danie provided a report on the wear of one of the TINY tea leaves cardis.

Knits on Screen

Susie ranted about the fibery references on Suburgatory, and delighted in the one on Fargo.

Current Projects

Susie ran into a(nother) snag with her Elizabeth Shawl, and ended up setting it aside. But it will be fixed eventually. She also worked on her 3/4 Hap Shawl, and started a TGV using a Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball in Indisch Rosa.

Danie’s Lintilla grew a bit, as did her Zigzagular Socks. She also picked up her Mother’s Day Cast-On 2013 project, but has some doubts about it. She may be casting on a TGV of her own…

Future Projects

Susie swatched for Hitofude using Wollemeise Pure in Ein Klein Wenig Verrucht, and will be knitting it for her Mother’s Day Cast-On. She is also participating in Camp Loopy 2014 Project 1, and will be knitting Bramble Fern in Cascade 220 Superwash in Provence. She is also planning on another shawl (or three) and the patterns catching her eye are Brickless, Rippling, and Tan House Brook Shawl.

Danie has decided to spin for her Mother’s Day project, and will be using fiber from the amazing and mythical Countess Ablaze.

Enhance the Stash

Susie’s stash was enhanced by two gorgeous skeins from Ladybug Fiber, including a skein for her Mother’s Day Cast-On 2015 (crazy town!).
