Ep. 72 - 70s Kitchen Appliance

Is everyone having a good summer?  Here's a short update from me!


What I've Finished:

Jill did all the finishing on Karen's Frenchie by Sara Elizabeth Kellner out of Cascade 220 in Mustard and Natural.  Her Rav page here.  She also finished spinning a gradient out of Oink Pigments Knotty Fluff in Sunny with a Chance of Peaches, Melon-Choly, Multi-Pass and Gecko Meadow.  She spun 4 oz of a light fingering weight yarn.





My Current Fix:
Jill is trying to spin every day for Tour de Fleece, and her next spinning project is naturally dyed merino batts from Stick and Stone Fiber Arts.  Jill is mostly done with Fixation by Ann Weaver in Spincycle Yarns.  She might be done, or she might redo the ribbing on a smaller needle.  She is also obsessed with her Ninilchik Swoncho by Caitlin Hunter, using Cloudborn Superwash DK in Lavender Heather and Cloudy Skies, Junkyarn DK in Indira and Dragonfly Fibers Traveller in Coleus.  Her Rav page here.



What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill's into the Wool & Honey pullover by Andrea Mowry.  She also bought the Here We Gnome Again pattern by Sarah Schira.

Ep. 71 - Inside of the Purge

Ep. 71 is up!


Finished Items:
Jill finished her True Friend pullover by Veera Valimaki!  She used Dream in Color Jilly in Brilliant and MadTosh Tosh Merino Light in Silver.

My Current Fix:
Jill is done with the knitting portion of her knit French Bulldog using the Karen's Frenchie pattern by Sara Elizabeth Kellner.  She used Cascade 220 yarn from her stash.  She is also working on the Fixation hat by Ann Weaver using a kit from Spincycle Yarns purchased at Stitches West 2018.  She is also in the middle of spinning some Oink Pigments Knotty Fluff bumps using the colorways Sunny with a Chance of Peaches, Melon-Choly, Multi-Pass and Gecko Meadow.  She will continue spinning this during Tour de Fleece as part of the Greater Los Angeles Spinning Guild team.



What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill is into the DK weight 3-color shawl, Milu by Tamy Gore.  She likes the summer tee Awelan by Susanna IC from Twist Collective july 2018.  There is an awesome looking crochet blanket CAL, the Karoo Vintage MAL by Jen Tyler.  Jill also likes a couple patterns from the recent Knitscene Fall 2018: the Agatha Shawl by Mone Drager and the Greta Cardigan by Joan Forgione.

Re-Ups:
Cloudborn Pima Cotton DK in Taupe for Knitted Knockers
Cloudborn DK Superwash Merino in Stormy Skies for her Ninilchik Swoncho by Caitlin Hunter.  That might be for the Yarniacs Color of Fall KAL.
