Episode 50 – Coming Clean About Washing Knits

In this episode, the girls come clean about washing their knits. Susie over-thinks and over-dramatizes about sleeves, and Danie switches up her sock-knitting technique.

Listen here.

Events

The Chill Chaser KAL is going on September 1, 2014 through October 31, 2014. Check out this blog post for details! Here is a link to the official KAL thread on the Friends of Spud & Chloe Ravelry group, and a link to the KAL thread on the PGK&S Ravelry group.

Contest

The winners of the Chill Chaser patterns, and the winner of Danie’s Triangle Thumb Toddler Mitten pattern, are announced!

Current Projects

Susie rebounded with her Chill Chaser Cardigan, finishing the back, reknitting the right front, and seaming the shoulders. She’s been strategizing on the sleeves, and thinks she’s settled on a course of action, after changing her mind at least a couple times. In her second son of a stitch in as many weeks, she restarted her Bright Sunshiney Hat because it seemed very loose. She went down a couple needle sizes for the ribbing and reduced the number of stitches and she is much happier with the fit.

Danie worked on  her Chill Chaser Hoodie, and may have overshot the armholes because her measuring tape was out of reach. She also started a fabulous new pair of socks! Rather than her usual two-at-a-time MO, she’s knitting them in parallel using 8″ circular needles. She also cast on the first of three football hats she’s knitting for family.

Future Projects

Susie swatched for Overlynd using the yarn she re-purposed from her Providence Hoodie she reconsidered in Episode 26.

Enhance the Stash

Susie got a gorgeous one-of-a-kind skein from SparkStory that she’s going to use to knit some fabulous birthday socks. Spoiler alert: there is more stash enhancement to come.

Danie celebrated her birthday the best possible way – with stash enhancement! She add Bijou Basin Himalayan Trail in Fergus, Manic Pixie Dream Yarn Norma in Cloudy with a Chance of Rainbows, and Little Mount Yarn Co. Glitter Sock in Exploding Tardis to her stash. She also scored her first bag from Suburban Stitcher.
