Events

Finished Projects

Danie finished her Fade In Mittens, and they are fabulous!

Current Projects

Susie knit through the heel flap and has just started the turn on her first Bang Whiz sock and will be putting in what has become her standard heel – the double gusset heel. She also knit on her Ozukuri Lace Shawl, and the rows are getting so very long. She cast on a Chou Cowl using Twisted Fiber Arts Arial Evolution in Phantom, and a Dinner in the Eiffel Tower Shawl using Malabrigo Arroyo in Borrajas.

Danie spun two bobbins full of singles and is planning on doing a 2-ply. She also knit a bit on her Awesome Socks, and on her glorious Sugared Violets. She added a huge square to her Stained Glass Sock Blanket, and is rapidly closing in on the hem of her Mama Vertebrae.

Danie purchased some gorgeous chocolate cormo from Clabber Glynn Farm.

Susie purchased some Berroco Vintage in Azure, and Another Crafty Girl Strong Sock in I Can Fix It!

Episode 73 – For Real This Time

In this episode, the girls update their 2015 knitting plans. Susie comes down just barely on the wrong side of 500 yds, and Danie thinks some deep thoughts while knitting her sock yarn blanket.

Listen here.

Finished Projects

Danie finished two more coozies!

Susie finished her Imagine When. She had the tiniest of a son of a stitch in that it finished just 4 yds shy of a second point for the Around Your Neck KAL. It brings her Stash Dash total to 3027 out of 5468 yds.

Current Projects

Susie knit just a little bit on her Fork in the Road socks, enough for another little son of  stitch by putting the heel in too early and having to rip back.  She also worked some on her Bang Whiz socks, and a lot on her no-longer-hibernating Ozukuri Lace Shawl.

Danie knit a bit on her Stained Glass Sock Blanket, until choosing colors stalled her progress. She also worked on her Sugared Violets and is so enjoying it’s simplicity, and she put a second sleeve on her Mama Vertebrae.
