Ep. 56 - This Is Just Nasty

I had Lisa and Eve as guests this time around!  You might remember Eve from Michele's previous podcast, Skein After Skein.

Finished Items:
Eve had recently finished a crochet basket, that she modified greatly from another pattern.  She made several cute fake fur hats using the pattern Jake and Lizzy by Heidi Yates.  One of her Rav pages is here.  Jill finished a Foxy and Wolfie hat by Ekaterina Blanchard.  She used Cloudborn Superwash DK in orange and cream.

Our Current Fix:
Eve is working on a chemo cap using the Madeline's Cap pattern by Knots of Love.  Lisa is working on a cute little sewn felt animal from Tubby Wubby.  She also showed us her zipper pouch sewn using cork.
Jill is making her way through Summer Vibes by Lesley Anne Robinson out of Queensland Uluru.  She is also still working on the Kusha Kusha scarf using Habu Stainless Steel/Silk and Merino.  She spun up some .5 oz little nests of Targhee/Bamboo/Silk fiber from Goodie Supply Company.  Jill is going to use the handspun yarn to knit up embroidered birds from Arne & Carlos's Field Guide to Knitted Birds.  She also finally basted her quilt!  

What We're Jonesing For:
Jill is into the Lavia pullover by Katrin Schneider.  She bought the pattern for the Zweig pullover by Caitlin Hunter.  She's also into the mix & shake hat by Svetlana Volkova.

Ep. 55 - Keeping It Real

I hope you're all planning on joining the FIFO craft-a-long!

Finished Items:
Jill finished her Springs to Mind hat by Kino Knits.  Her Rav page here.  She used One Twisted Tree Prime Fingering in Acid Peacock, Leading Men Fiber Arts Showcase in Barbie's Nighty and Malabrigo Sock in Lettuce.  She also finished spinning some Malabrigo Nube fiber in the Candombe colorway. Her Rav page here.

My Current Fix:
Jill spent most of her time working on the Rhapsody in Cables sweater by Joji Locatelli.  She was using Cascade 220 in 8418.  She also started a fox hat using the Foxy & Wolfie pattern by Ekaterina Filippova-Blanchard.  She was using Cascade 220 in a natural color and Malabrigo Worsted in American Beauty.  She was running out of yarn so is going to rip it out.  She also made it a few rows into the Summer Vibes by Lesley Anne Robinson out of Queensland Uluru yarn in White Sands and Violet Hill

What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill likes the Burke cardigan by Bristol Ivy and Front Row Center by Mary Annarella.  She is into a couple shawls: Wiz by Nadia Cretin-Lechenne and Seashells by Xandy Peters.  Her favorite novelty items are the Original Cockatoo Scarf by Nina Fuhrer and the Pumpkin Mittens by Lumi Karmitsa.

Join the First-In-First-Out craft-a-long with us!  It officially starts October 1st and will go through the end of the year.  Finally give some love to those projects you planned years ago!  Jill is starting the Kusha Kusha scarf out of Habu Textiles Silk/Stainless  and Merino laceweight yarns.
