Episode 114 – Clothespins to Wooden Spoon Conversion

In this episode, the tangents are legion. Danie fakes Susie out, and Susie sits back and lets Danie go.

Listen here.

Stuff & Things

Frondescence and Any Way the Wind Blows are both now available as individual patterns in the Prairie Girl Designs Ravelry store, and are still available as part of the Point/Counterpoint, Volume 2 collection available in the Kino Knits Ravelry store.

Events

The girls will be having a pop-up at Imagiknit in October! Details to come!

Finished Projects

Susie finished another Darling Little Earflap Hat out of Plymouth Yarn Homestead in Light Grey Heather, and her Endless Maze Socks.

Current Projects

Danie persisted on her Downpour Socks, and went nuts (in the best way) on her WeekEnder Hexi Blanket. She also started Cattails.

Susie started a second Roughlock Falls Shawl out of One Twisted Tree Lavish in Chaotic Neutral. She also swatched for her Georgetown out of Luna Grey Fiber Arts Vega in Pewter.

New to Me

Susie found a couple new podcasts, Wine & Crime and Off Book. Both are hilarious in very different ways.

KISS

Susie grew a vegetable container garden for the first time this year, and has had great success with lettuces, radishes, cucumbers, sweet peppers and hot peppers. She has turned into a pickle-making machine.

Danie’s family has started exploring the wonders of whey by making their own yogurt and cheese.

Episode 113 – Heel Today, Gone Tomorrow

In this episode, the girls have no clue what they’re going to talk about but quickly figure something out. Susie has news and tangents, and Danie perseveres through more heel issues.

Listen here.

Events

The girls will be having a pop-up at Imagiknit in October! Details to come!

Finished Projects

Susie finished her Weekend Pullover, and it is pretty adorable.

Current Projects

Susie started a Pebble Beach Shawl out of Leading Men Fiber Arts Diva in the Yarnhoarder colorway.

Danie added a square to her Stained Glass Sock Blanket¬†(not her WeekEnder Hexi Blanket). She also put a 5th heel into her Downpour Socks¬†which didn’t work, but has a new heel plan in place.

Project: Reconsideration

Susie reconsidered her Vedai. It has languished far too long, and she’s just doesn’t love it anymore. She is very taken with Ryo, however, which is likely what the yarn will become.

Danie reconsidered her Staring at Stars out of Miss Babs’ Yowza in the Denim colorway. She is considering striping the yarn with some of her early hand-dyed in a Cattails or a Naima.

Enhance the Stash

A big thank you to It’s All About Ewe for sending preview skeins of her self-striping in the Falling Stars and Fluorite colorways!
