Finished Projects

Susie finished her Rambled hat, and her Willowbrook Shawl. Both knits were enjoyed and are loved, both were also forgotten for recording purposes.

Current Projects

Danie knit on her Awesome Socks, some socks for her Wellies, and a pair of socks using One Twisted Tree in Soul of the Tardis and Admiral Adama.

One thought on “Episode 83 – The Great Prairie Girl Caper

  1. I just had to tell you that I laughed out loud when you talked about husbands filling a knitter’s Christmas stocking in your recent episode. My husband does a nice job with my stocking. He goes to Target and buys a bunch of weird things and I love that he does it! This year he made a crack about having to do his Christmas shopping (fill my stocking–the only shopping he does!) and that was my opening. I sent him an e-mail with a link to your site and suggested that he could forgo his trip to Target and buy me some of your yarn! He never mentioned the note. After a few days I brought it up and he said “you sent that?? I thought it was spam and ignored it!”. Clearly I need to be less cryptic in the future! We will see if he comes through! Happy holidays to you and yours! I so enjoy the podcast! Thank you!
