Ep. 37 - Not Hyping Up Autumn





Finished Projects:
Jill made The Clincher by Ash Kearns out of Knitted Wit Victory Fingering in Supernova and Sweetgeorgia Tough Love Sock in an aqua color.  Her Rav page is here.

Our Current Fix:
Jill had some project attempts that didn't turn out.  Including the Mesmeric Cardigan by Katy Banks and Becky's Preemie Fruit Orchard Hat by Rebecca Craig from Bev's Country Cottage.  She is also working on On the Spice Market by Melanie Berg for the Big Bad Berg-a-Long.  She is using Leading Men Fiber Arts Showcase in Barbie's Nighty, a Woolbearers Gradient set in gold and Frabjous Fibers Cheshire Cat in Tulgey Wood.  Her Rav page is here.
Michele is working on the smocked hat, Gather by tincanknits in Red Heart with Love.

What We're Jonesing For:
Michele is into the Altastratus shawl by Alla Saenko, the Cicada Shawl by Toby Roxane Barna and Aggregate by Jimenez Joseph.  Michele can't get the Baby Bubble Blanket by Pamela Spath out of her head.  She might have to make another Windschief by Steven West.

Jill likes the Fangorn Forest by Svetlana Gordon, the Stag Head Pullover by Norah Gaughan and the Emerald Shawl by Bernadette Ambergen.  There are some free patterns that she likes: I'm With Her by yellowcosmo, Songbird by Sara Elizabeth Kellner, Blair Road by Magdalene Lee and the Bikini Dishcloth by Lily/Sugar n Cream.
