Ep. 35 - Bring on the Christmas Carols

We need to get back on a regular schedule!  We had lots to talk about!

Finished Projects:
Michele finished and blocked her Clincher shawl out of Spun Right Round sock yarn in Trainyard and KP Stroll Brights in Pucker.  She also bound off her Rikke hat in Marigold Jen DK, Pascal colorway.
Jill finished her Ravellenic project!  It is the Amille shawl by Emily Ross in Tosh Lace Oceana. Her Rav page is here (needs finished pictures!)

Our Current Fix:
Michele doesn't have anything on the needles!  She is going to find a hat pattern using Lion Brand Lion's Pride Woolspun.
Jill recommends that Michele join the Twisted Stitches Podcast Harvest Hat-a-Long.

Jill is working on the last sleeve of her Banded Lace Pullover by Traci Bunkers in Cascade Avalon.  She is knitting the Imagine When shawl by Joji Locatelli in gnarledpaw Boffo yarn in the Smash Box colorway for the Joji Fall KAL.  Her Rav page here.

What We're Jonesing For:
Michele likes the Silver Screen Hat & Scarf (mainly just the hat) by Paton's.  She likes the Hogwarts House Scarf Bookmarks by Five Little Monsters.  (Jill can't find the exact one, but here's a search of scarf/bookmarks.)  She's into the I'm Lichen This Hat by Gretchen Tracy.

Jill likes the (rascist?) Senor Taco by the DMC Design Team.  Listener Gen (dimsumdumpling) published her first pattern: the Holiday Gifting Minis.  Jill has also favorited a couple shawls: Spotlight by Janina Kallio and Ramble by Andrea Mowry.  She likes the Stranger Things cowl by Mary Annarella.  She's also into the Shusui Shrug by Susanne Sommer (famous for the Hoodie Shawl Cardigan) out of Qing Fiber.
