Current Projects

Danie worked on her My First Stitches Socks, and loves the fit of the Sweet Tomato Heel. She finds it fits her heel very well, and the pattern easy to memorize. She started a new pair of socks, her Swirling Rainbow Socks, out of fabulous yarn she dyed herself. She also worked on her Mama Vertebrae, and started another pair of kid mittens.

Susie worked on her Water and Stone, and she’s past the bust shaping and is cruising down the body. She also worked on her Conjunction Cowl and John Huston socks. She too cast on a new pair of socks, using the amazing electric rainbow yarn Danie dyed.

Episode 55 – The Variegated Predicament

In this episode, the girls talk about their strategies for using variegated yarn. Susie declares sport is the new sock for her, and Danie concentrates on her sweater.

Listen here.

Last week’s topic was inspired by a listener’s comment in the Episode 52 thread, and she let us know the idea originated with Em of the Knitting Pretty podcast. Check out her Ravelry group for additional discussion on the many faces of knitters.

Danie finished her Conjunction Cowl. She fought the yarn chicken, and she won but it was really close.

Susie finally finished her 3/4 Hap Shawl. She didn’t attempt yarn chicken, and so modified the bottom edging accordingly.

Susie knit a few stitches on her John Huston, the Tarnished Hero socks.

Danie cast on her My First Stitches Socks, and swatched for a Mama Vertebrae.

Truth.

Danie is hard on things.
