Ep. 28 - I'm from Los Angeles

We're back!  We've missed you!


Our Current Fix:
Jill finished a bunch of stuff over the last month.  She made two sets of Knitted Knockers out of Cascade Ultra Pima (Rav page here).  She finished the Stoney Brook Top by Rusty Baker out of Knit Picks Hawthorne Fingering in the Belmont colorway (Rav page here).  She knit a Bunny Beanie by Noe Knit out of Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton and Red Heart Creme de la Creme for Kimberly from the Twisted Stitches podcast (Rav page here).  She also finished a Peasleeville hat by Melissa LaBarre out of Rowan Lima in the Aztec colorway with a Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Astrakhan pompom.

Jill is working on an adult Garter Ear Flap Hat by Purl Soho out of Gnarledpaw Proper DK in Mexican Blue Wing Butterfly.  She is also working on the Route 99 hat/turban by Lee Meredith from the Stranded Magazine: Warm Weather 2016 in KPPPM in pink and KP Bare Hare. Michele asked about a previous turban and that was the Knit Yourself a Turban (Moss Stitch) pattern.


What We're Jonesing For:
Michele wants to be knitting anything!  She recommends Breathing Space by Veera Valimaki for Jill.
Jill has queued Ondawa by Michele Wang from the Brooklyn Tweed 14 Collection based on seeing suskyre's version of it at the retreat.  She is into the Venn cowl by Ella Austin from the Colour and Line collection.  She also finally bought a Northbound Knitting pattern, Diaemus shawl by Lisa Mutch.
