Episode 5 - Hey Crazy Town

Lots of knitting happening, and finally a Finished Object!

Jill went to the Valley Ford Wool Mill wool fest last weekend. She bought some BFL roving from BeesyBee Fibers. Right after podcasting she saw an ad for that Etsy shop and now she suspects that her computer is listening to every thing she says.  She also bought BFL roving from Bee Mice Elf at the Greater Los Angeles Spinning Guild meeting.  Also (!) she received her yarn from Gnarled Paw for the Leif shrug kit.

Our Current Fix:
Jill finally finished her Crazy Stripes Tee!  She is still working on her Cerise Cowl.  She also is starting her Hitofude cardigan out of Knit Picks Lindy Chain.  She is about to ply some Imperial Stock Ranch roving.

Michele is almost done with her Mielie Vest.  She hasn't touched her Clincher.

What We're Jonesing For:
Michele is obsessed with Jane Richmond and her Georgia cardigan.  She is in love with the Fleur Cardi by Svetlana Volkova as well as the rest of the Summer Spirit collection (20% until June 1!)

Jill has been trying to find a project for the Hand Made Modern yarn that Michele challenged her with.  Some potential patterns are: Ombre by ChemKnits, Blackberry Salad Striped Baby Bonnet by Tamara Kelly and the Windsor Hat by Karie Westermann.  Michele thinks she might use the Heart Fingerless Mitts pattern for her Target yarn.  Comment on the thread with another pattern idea and win your own set of yarns and a project bag.

Help Michele decide which color of KP Wool of the Andes to buy for her next vest project!

Episode 4 - I Don't Mean to Interrupt

Episode 4 is live!

Current Fix:
Michele is still working on The Clincher by Ash Kearns and the Mielie Vest by Hilary Smith Callis.  Jill is still working on the Crazy Stripes Tee by atelier Al-fa and the Cerise Curl by Hunter Hammerson.  They are really going to try to get stuff finished for next time!  And maybe participate in the Knit Girllls Stash Dash.

What We're Jonesing For:
Jill is thinking about summer tops.  She might make the Hitofude Cardigan out of Knit Picks Lindy Chain.  She also loves Tracery, Marbore and Arc from the Berroco Norah Gaughan collections.  She also bought a kit from Gnarled Paw yarns for Leif.
(Maybe a potential pattern giveaway next time?)

Michele is obsessing over her upcoming Impression Vest and which Knit Picks yarn she is going to use for it.
