Episode 126 – Casting On & Picking Back Up

In this episode, the girls chat about their Mother’s Day Cast-Ons (and Pick-Back-Ups). Susie is unsortable, and Danie does not recommend swatching babies.

Listen here.

Stuff & Things

Dianne of Suburban Stitcher is hosting a Prairie Girl Designs KAL, and Susie started a Prairie Girl Designs Ravelry group.

Events

The girls will be attending Zombie Knitpocalypse again this year – June 20th-24th in Rochester, MN.

Finished Projects

Susie finished her Circuitous Ribbed Socks.

Danie finished her Baby Vertebrae.

Current Projects

Susie worked on her second Evanesce sample out of Suburban Stitcher Single Sock in the Darkest Night, Dandiya, and Sari Silk colorways.

Danie worked on her Walnut Street Socks, her Kristi Socks, and her Home Alone Socks.

Susie’s Mother’s Day Cast-On was her I am Fearless Socks using Must Stash Yarn and Fiber Perfect Self Striping Sock I am Fearless colorway from the Affirmation Collection.

Danie’s Mother’s Day Pick-Back-Up was her Daeyln Sweater.

Project: Reconsideration

Susie reconsidered her Winter Remix Hexi Socks. When she started them she was trying to be too fancy, and with having had to re-work the first sock once, she’s over them.

Episode 123 – PGP: Whatcha Been Knitting?!

In this episode, the girls catch up on what all they’ve been knitting lately. Danie knits for not-her-baby, and Susie makes peace with the fact that she’s only going to shrink from here.

Listen here.

Events

Susie will be at DFW Fiber Fest April 5th-8th in Irving, Texas. If you will be too, let her know!

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

Finished Projects

Danie finished a couple of #notherbaby knits: her (but not *her* hers) Baby Hat and her Pink Better Than Baby Booties.

Susie finished her Tracie.

Current Projects

Danie started a Baby Verebrae using Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop. She worked a little on her Daeyln Pullover, and on her 2018 New Year Socks. She also started a blanket for the Ravellenics. She also started a test knit for Greg/KnittingDaddy’s new design called Smoke in the City Hat using Malabrigo Rios in the Aquamarine colorway.

Susie finished two more squares on her Oh, Scrap! Blanket. She also started a Fly Away blanket using Plymouth Yarn Worsted Merino Superwash Solids, and the first two colors she’s working with are Dress Blues Navy and Primavera. She also worked on (and re-worked) her Winter Remix Hexi Socks, and started a pair of Zigzagular Socks using Suburban Stitcher Glitter Sock in the Blonde Squad. She also got Ryo to the point where it’s joined for knitting in the round, and she’s been chugging away on her Berlin Soft.

 

 Enhance the Stash 

Susie acquired a skein of Ines from Yoshi and Lucy in the Cheshire Cat colorway. She also had her birthday wish granted in the form of a Fringe Supply Co. Field Bag, the orange one exclusive to PurlSoho.

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.

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.
