Episode 3 - Postponed by Grossness

Lots of traveling chatting before the knitting content.  Knitting starting around 15 minutes in.  So sorry for the delay guys!  We'll try to stay on schedule!

Current Fix:
Michele hasn't been knitting much but is still working on her Mielie Vest by Hilary Smith Callis and Clincher by Ash Kearns.

Jill is working on the Crazy Stripes Tee by atelier Al-fa in Malabrigo Sock.  She also started a Cerise curl from the Curls book by Hunter Hammerson out of Araucania Atacama.  She is also four clues into the Sophie's Universe CAL blanket out of Knit Picks Brava.

What We're Jonesing For:
Jill has picked some vest patterns for Michele's next project.  She suggests the Impression Vest by Meghan Jones, Napoleon by Berroco, Sexxxy Librarian by Lilith Ubbelohde, Loro Vest by Cirilia Rose and the Vine Lace Vest by Cecily Glowik MacDonald.  Michele is most excited about the Impression Vest.

Jill is obsessing over complicated shawl patterns.  She has some Madtosh Merino Light she just purchased to make Oceania by Kieran Foley.  She is also still thinking about making Fox Paws by Xandy Peters in Knit Picks Palette.

Highs/Lows (Uppers and Downers?):
We mentioned some books.  Sea Biscuit by Laura Hillenbrand, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller for Jill.  In the Garden of Beasts by Eric Larsen, The Martian by Andy Weir for Michele.

The KnitScene styling we mentioned:

Episode 2 - Homey Don't Play That

We are not always family friendly, so listener beware if there are children present!  A couple s-words this time around...

Our Current Fix:
Jill just finished up her skirt using the New Girl pattern by Allyson Dykhuizen in KP Wool of the Andes Sport.  She has also finished the Pressed Leaves pattern by Alana Dakos in Madtosh DK.  Her Ravelry page for it is here.  She has swatched for and is going to cast on the Crazy Stripes Tee by atelier alfa in Malabrigo sock.

Michele is making good progress on her Mielie Vest by Hilary Smith Callis.  Her Rav page for it is here.  She is still working on her Clincher, using the pattern by Ash Kearns and Spun Right Round Snappy Socks.

What We're Jonesing For:
Jill wants to make True Friend by Veera Valimaki and the Sophie's Universe CAL blanket by Dedri Uys.  She has yarn for both already!  She is also thinking about her first Curl (from Curls by Hunter Hammerson).

Michele is still lusting for the Calligraphy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig.  She also wants to make the Miranda sweater by Josee Paquin.

Other Things Mentioned:
Wil Wheaton and Table Top.  (When I said The Stand, I really meant It!!  Too many Steven King movies! - Jill)
Stefanie Japel's Boobholder mini sweater.
Stephen West's Garter Squish blanket.
Ukrainian Tiles blanket by Margery Winter
