Our Current Fix:
Jill is very close on her Jenica Hoodie. She's hoping to finish it by the end of Monday, but doesn't think it'll happen. She managed to work on her Beechwood Cowl by Melynda Bernardi during a work conference. She's using Kathmandu DK to match her Beechwood Hat. She is partway through spinning 70% Oatmeal BFL/30% Silk from Wool Gatherings. She has 8 oz, and still has 4.5oz of singles still to spin.
Michele is working on the Lyndhurst Cowl in Bernat Multi-Ply in the Highway colorway. She is using her Lion Brand Heartland to knit the Black Death Shawl.
What We're Jonesing For:
Michele just learned of the French Cancan pattern by Mademoiselle C. She might even use Caron Simply Soft. She also likes GingerSNAP by Erika Flory. She is intrigued by the recent Stephen West MKAL, The Doodler. We then talk about lots of other Stephen West patterns.
Jill has a ton of new patterns that she has bought. She won the Solaris pattern by Melanie Berg from a Yarniacs Podcast giveaway. She wants to start the Jollyoly hat by Hanna Maciejewska but her yarn might be too variegated. She aspires to the Shakespeare in Love sweater by Carol Sunday. She wants to make Tiong Bahru by Asa Tricosa. She also loves the #1 Mock-Neck Shift by Brooke Nico from Vogue Knitting Holiday 2015.
Jill tries to talk Michele into the father cables hat by Veronika Jobe.
