Ep. 39 - You're In a Safe Place!

After  computer mishaps we are back!  Hopefully Ep. 38 will come out after this one!


Finished projects:
Michele finished her Gather hat by Tin Can Knits.
Jill finished the Tartelette by Lisa Chemery out of Bumblebirch Forage in Cranberry.  This was her first project for the Indie Designer Gift-a-Long.  Her Rav page is here.



Our Current Fix:
Michele is chugging along on her Garter Squish blanket by Stephen West, using Vanna's Choice and Berroco Vintage Bulky.
Jill is working on the Mina hat by Ela Torrente using Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in Parakeet, also for the gift-a-long.  She pretty much finished it while recording.  Her Rav page is here.  She also made it partway through her first Mother Bear for the Mother Bear Project.



What We're Jonesing For:
Michele has been looking at baby blankets again.  She is thinking about making a giant Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth.  She is into all of the crocheted blankets by BabyLove Brand, including the Desert Bloom, Wildflower Blanket, Modern Patchwork, Painted Hexagon, Trellis & Chevron and Threaded Colors Chevron.
Jill is making plans for the rest of the gift-a-long.  She will be starting the Delta Mitts by Ella Austin, the Aumangea Pullover by Francoise Danoy (using Cloudborn Worsted Twist from Craftsy), Shark Bite socks by Lara Smoot and the Starry Dream Hanging Ornament by Tatiana Kupryianchyk (Lilla Bjorn Crochet).  She also bought the Sizzle Pop shawl by Lesley Anne Robinson but won't cast it on until next year.
