Our Current Fix:
Michele has been working on her Celtic Cable Beanie by Cecilia Fameli in Knit Picks City Tweed in Blue Blood.
Jill finished some handspun yarn. She spun 8 oz of woolgatherings 70% Oatmeal BFL / 30% Silk fiber into a 2-ply DK.
Jill has been working primarily on the Alinta Wrap by Ambah O'Brien in KP Capretta Cream, Decadently Divine Sock in Speckled Egg, Shibui Sock in a raspberry color.
What We're Jonesing For:
Michele is looking at blankets. She mentions the Peacock Pretty Blanket by kraftling, also the Daisy Afghan, Surf City Beach Blanket, and Plum Throw, all by kraftling. She's also been looking at hot water bottle cover, including the Hot Water Straitjacket by brella, Bee Cozy by Melissa Kelenske, Winterberry by gluecksfisch, Budding Branches by Kendra Nitta, and Simply Seamless Cozy by BacoKnitter Designs.
Jill has some favorites including Nancy Merchant's new brioche cowl pattern Bonfire and the Moose Sweater by Lone Kjeldsen. She also really wants to make the Aumangea Pullover by Francoise Danoy and the Lemon Whimsy Hat by Sara Setters.
