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!
