Ep. 59 - Despite the Dream

Finished Items:
Jill finished the Coronis sweater by Emily Ringelman.  She used Neighborhood Fiber Co Studio Sport in Clintonville and Gnarled Paw Proper DK in Horse in a Gray Flannel Suit and Mexican Blue Butterfly.  Her Rav page is here.  She also made two little hat ornaments using the Icy Seas pattern by Hunter Hammersen.  She used some leftover Knit Picks Stroll in Wonderland for those.

My Current Fix:
Jill is working on the Wake shawl by Kephren Pritchett in Frabjous Fiber Wonderland Chesire yarn in Shillings & Pence.  She is debating whether to keep knitting and make the medium or just finish at the small size.  She is also plugging away at the 3-in-1 Button Boots by Bekah Knits.  She's using Tahki Donegal Tweed in an oatmeal color and Lamb's Pride Worsted in Ink Blue for the soles.  She's also just started the Summer Into Fall baby dress by Lisa Chemery.

What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill's into a few patterns that would work for the Indie Design Giftalong: Thunderstorm Toque by Abbye Dahl and necklaces like the Zarah Necklace by Ambah O'Brien and the #statementknits by Susanne Sommer.  She loves the Chunky Walnut hat by Katrin Schubert and the ChevRiot shawl by Jennifer Dassau.  A couple holiday patterns Jill likes are the Olive's Christmas Stocking by Pernille Larsen and the Tannenbaumchen Potholder by Sybil R.
