Ep. 11 - The Californians

Michele and Jill talk about what streets they took to get to the podcast.

Our Current Fix:
Jill finished her Redfish Dye Works 80/20 Merino/Silk 2-ply spinning:
She is now onto a 4oz braid of Spun Right Round BFL in the Koi colorway.  She has started the colorwork section for her Downton Pullover.  Her Rav page here. She cast on for the 22 Leaves Shawlette in MadTosh Merino Light in Coquette for her coworker.
Michele has only been working on her Clincher with Spun Right Round sock yarn.

What We're Jonesing For:
Michele is still working on finding her crochet sweater project for the FIFO craft-a-long.  She found the magazine that has the Stripey Spring Cardi by Mari Lynn Patrick.  She also bought Knit Picks Swish DK for the Saturn Sweater by Linda Permann.
Jill has a few new sweater favorites.  She likes the Dark Rainbow Sweater by Emma Welford from the knit.purl Fall/Winter 2015 magazine.  She loves but probably won't make the Painted Desert poncho by Carol Sunday.  Colorwork poncho!  She's queued the Yellow Gold Pullover by Linda Marveng in the Interweave Fall 2015.

Come join us for our First-In-First-Out Craft-a-long!  Pick a pattern or yarn that you've been wanting to work with for a long time but keep putting off!  We started the CAL on August 1 and will be going until October 1.  Plenty of time to get a project started and finished!
