Episode 136 – The One with All the Dogs

In this episode, the girls are joined by a couple canine co-hosts. Susie is not mad at extra soccer practices, and Danie has been channeling her inner Bob Villa in lieu of knitting.

ListenĀ here.

Stuff & Things

A big thank you to Rachel of Unraveled Designs, designer of the Outlander Shawl, who reached out to Susie to suggest an alternate edging. So kind!

Finished Projects

Hahahahaha….None finished projects. Again.

Current Projects

Susie worked on both of her Life’s a Peach socks again (this one and this one). She also cast on The Shallow socks out of Another Crafty Girl Strong Sock in the Voice of Reason colorway and a new self-striping sock design out of Nomadic Yarns Brit Sock in the Gives Me Goosebumps colorway. She also cast on a Moonquake cowl out of Suburban Stitcher Sport in the Eggplant and Masquerade colorways.

Danie worked on her Chicago Socks and her Home Alone Socks.

Enhance the Stash

Susie enhanced her stash in a major way at DFW Fiber Fest. She picked up a Bolga basket from Windmill Crest Farms, three skeins of Must Stash Yarns & Fiber Perfect Self Striping Sock in the Vespa, Ready Player One, and I am Strong colorways, two skeins of a thing for string Himalayan Sock (undyed) to make a Siberian rustic shawl, and a skein of Teeny Button Studio Soft Sock in the Flying Horses colorway. From Suburban Stitcher she picked up a shawl kit for a Time Trades shawl, a skein of Sock on the show colorway Irving to make Hello Sunshine socks, four skeins of Sport in Eggplant and Masquerade for the already started Moonquake cowl, a total of five skeins of Merino DK in Eggplant, Clam City, Neptune and Bashful to make a Soldotna Crop (for the record, Danie’s surprise was that no color direction was provided as a jumping off point), and two skeins of Single Sock in the Eggplant and Clam City. She also picked up the cutest hedgehog project bag from Whimzee Stitches, and various notions and pins from both Whimzee Stitches and Suburban Stitcher as well as a mini shawl pin from Crafty Flutterby Creations.
