I have a special guest! It's Kim! Formerly of the Stitch by Stitch video cast and inbetweendreams on Ravelry and inbetweendr3ams on Instagram.
I apologize for the sound quality. I got a little overeager with noise removal and it lost a bit of the dynamic range. Plus I was slightly drunk and yelling.
What We've Finished:
Kim wove a little table runner out of handspun yarns and Pagewood Farms sock yarn. Her Rav page here. She recommends the Rigid Heddle Weaving class on Craftsy.
Jill finished a baby sweater using the Crazyheart pattern by Tanis Lavallee from the Heart on My Sleeve ebook out of Cascade Ultra Pima in Jade and a number of other cotton leftovers. Her Rav page here.
Our Current Fix:
Kim is working on a hot water bottle cover out of some handspun. She is using the Handspun Hottie pattern by Laurie Claire. The fiber is Two If By Hand Polworth/Silk in Holly Holiday. (I got Polly Pocket confused with Holly Hobby!).
Jill is finishing up the Not Seen Before MKAL coordinated by Kristina Villamaite using Koigu KPPPM, Pagewood Farms Chugiak and a blip of Cloudborn Twist Fingering in aqua. She will be casting on the Cloche pattern from the recent Norah Gaughan book using Malabrigo Rios in Ravelry Red.
What We're Jonesing For:
Kim bought the Babette Blanket pattern by Kathy Merrick. She likes two crochet blankets by Sandra Paul including the Clamshell Blanket and the Granny Goes Large. She also wants to get into colorwork. She is planning for the Bousta Beanie by Gudrun Johnston using Jamison's & Smith Shetland yarn and looking at the Inspira Cowl by graphica and Lovage by Marie Wallin.
Jill is into the Confetti pullover by Veera Valimaki, the Stormy Sky Shawl by life is cozy and the Rainbrioche hat by Katrin Schubert.
