Episode 121 – Skippers Need Not Apply

In this episode, there are so many tangents. So many. Maybe too many. Susie recovers from issues with her edge stitches, and Danie prepares to zoom.

Listen here.

Event/Contest/Something

The Legend-Prairie contest is on through January 31st, so get your entry in! Danie’s project this year is her re-visited Handspun Elda Cardigan, and Susie’s is her Roughlock Fall Shawl (first & second).

And don’t forget the on-going Loosey-Goosey Sweater KAL!

Finished Projects

Susie finished her Hellebore shawl.

Current Projects

Susie cast on a Cypress Hat using Lavender Lune Yarn Co. DK in the Critters of Texas colorway leftover from her Origami Top Hat. She’s also worked quite a bit on her Tracie after a (not so) minor son of stitch concerning eyelets not lining up followed by a wonky edge stitch, and a little bit on her Ryo.

Danie knit on her Daelyn Pullover , her 2018 New Year Socks, and her Jaywalkers. She also picked up her Stained Glass Sock Blanket and it was just what she needed.

Please let Susie know if you are interested in test knitting a shawl or a cowl!

Event/Contest/Something

The Legend-Prairie contest and the Loosey-Goosey Sweater KAL are both underway; don’t forget to check out and post in Ravelry group threads!

Finished Projects

Susie finished a shawl and a cowl, both of her own design.

Danie finished some more really adorable pig food – a watermelon slice of her own design and a truffle. She also finished a Two By Two watch cap and added a folded brim to her Thundertwist hat.

Current Projects

Susie knit a bit on her Oh! Scrap Blanket, and started an LYS sample of her Hellebore Shawl pattern out of Brown Sheep Prairie Spun DK in the Huckleberry Pie colorway. She also cast on a Tracie out of Suburban Stitcher Sock in Cinder and Yarn Lang Syne, and worked more on her Berlin Soft.

Danie made a hard decision to re-work her Daelyn Pullover, and now it is knitting along swimmingly. She also cast on Jaywalker using Biscotte Yarns Bis-Sock in the Gazania colorway. She also cast on a pair of socks using Knit Picks Felici in Rainbow, with Knit Picks Stroll in Ash for heels and toes.

Enhance the Stash

In addition to Suburban Stitcher Sock in Cinder and Yarn Lang Syne, Susie also acquired Whitewalkers, Daenerys, and Coal as well as a skein of Glitter Sock in Blonde Squad.
