Ep. 33 - Cinnamon Roll of Love
You can find us on Ravelry as photospice (Michele) and nodice (Jill).  Or on Instagram as photospice75 and nodice11.  And join our Ravelry group at Skein Enable Podcast!

Our Current Fix:
Michele is enjoying working on her Rikke hat out of Marigold Jen DK Pascal.
Jill is working on her Inara Wrap still by Ambah O'Brien out of Artyarns Milano Fade in Malachite and Hematite.  She also started a crochet BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens using the BB-8 Crochet Pattern by Casey Barnes.  She's using stash Red Heart Super Saver and Cascade 220.

What We're Jonesing For:
Michele wants to make blankets!  She loves the Baby Chalice Blanket by Karen S. Lauger  She's also looking at the Virus Blanket by Jonna Martinez and Bubble Stitch Blanket by Pamela Spath.  She's also into the Noro Topper by Brian Smith.
Jill loves the Owen's Opossum by Sara Elizabeth Kellner.  She's into the asymmetrical shawlette, Latticework, by Rosemary (Romi) Hill.  She also likes the older hat, Konglelua by Ingvall Freland.

The Ravellenic Games is upon us!  Chat in our group, or join us in Team Sasquatch!  Michele is going to do WIP Wrestling.  Jill plans on making the Amille shawl by Emily Ross with Madeline Tosh Lace in Oceana.  The Games begin August 5 in your timezone!

Ep. 32 - Talk Gooey to Me

Our Current Fix:
Michele has started her Rikke hat in MarigoldJen DK Weight BFL (her Rav page here). Michele used a video from Knittables (Knitabulls?) about garter stitch in the round.  Jill couldn't find it to link here, so here's a different tutorial.
Jill finished her newborn Aviatrix hat by Justine Turner in Nerd Girl Yarns Clever (her project page here).  She is still working on the #15 Banded Lace Pullover by Traci Bunkers from Vogue Spring/Summer 2016 in Cascade Avalon.  She is 30% through her Inara Wrap by Ambah O'Brien out of two Artyarns Milano Fade gradients in Hematite Fade and Malachite Fade.

What We're Jonesing For:
Michele is into the 3-in-1 sweater and  the Stripes with a Twist pattern, both by atelier alfa.  Michele also likes the Gunmetal Shawlette by Mam'zelle Flo (which reminds Jill of patterns by busylittlemonkey) and A Little of This, a Little of That crocheted shawl by Teri DiLibero.
Jill has bought some Ysolda Teague patterns: Wee Carson and the Rhinebeck Sweater book.  She wants to make Pumpkin Ale, Aunt Fred and Jenny at the Fair.  She also like the Manatee pattern by Rachel Borello Carroll.  Also check out her other Yarnigans patterns, including the Dutch Rabbits and Marisol the Knitted Mouse.
