Ep. 30 - Soylent Green Is People!

Ep. 30 - Soylent Green is People!

What We've Finished:
Jill finished a Purl Soho Garter Earflap Hat out of gnarledpaw Proper DK in Mexican Blue Wing Butterfly colorway with a little tiny pompon on top (rav page here).  She made an Adama scowl by Hilary Smith Callis out of handspun from Black Bunny Fibers BFL in Meadows (rav page here).

She made a shawlette for a friend who was moving away using the Evanthe pattern by Corrina Ferguson and gnawledpaw Splendid Sock in Grey Gardens (Rav page here).  She also made a Sitka Spruce hat by tincan knits for Michele's birthday out of Malabrigo Rios in Purple Mystery.

Our Current Fix:
Michele is deciding to rip out her Arrowhead Socks by Renee Leverington in MarigoldJen DK Weight yarn in the Pascal colorway, because she'd rather make the Cowlicious by Nicole Vaughn or the Rikke Hat.  She is getting to the end of her Clincher out of Spun Right Round in Trainyard and Knit Picks Stroll Brights in Pucker (her rav page here).  She is also crocheting a washcloth out of Peaches and Cream cotton yarn in Fruit Punch and the Easy Crocheted Dishcloth pattern by Cheri Mancini.
Jill has gone back to working on her Sophie's Universe crochet blanket out of Knit Picks Brava Worsted by Dedri Uys.  She is more than halfway there.  Her Rav page here.  She also started a baby hat using the Striped Elf Hat by Anna Daku out of Lang Mille Colori Baby in fluorescent colors.
She also started spinning some natural dyed wool to potentially make an Elizabeth Zimmerman Fair Isle Yoked Caridgan, while demonstrating at the Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles.

What We're Jonesing For:
Michele is loving a couple non-Ravelry items. One is the Angus the Crocheted Gnome on pinterest (aka Cute Crochet Gnome by Amber Simmons on Ravelry), and also the Charlotte Split Brim Slouchy Hat by pixiebell.
Jill wants to knit the Herbarium shawl by Lisa Hannes (maliha designs).  She bought the Sight is Life ebook that will have 8 accessories patterns and 100% of the proceeds go to mission work in Congo for cataracts surgery.
