Ep. 84 - They Don't Look Like That At All

It's getting harder to find a funny line to make the episode title!

My Current Fix:
Jill is working on her Ixchel by Catherine Clark out of Sweet Sparrow Yarns Gosling in Dusty Rose and Magpie in Butterbeer.  She was trying to do the sleeve colorwork in intarsia, but is going to do it again in plain stockinette with duplicate stitch instead.  She just split for the armholes in her Pop Crop Cardi by Ambah O'Brien and Lobelia by Meghan Fernandes mash-up out of Jessie's handspun.  Jessie spun the 3-ply yarn out of two plies of natural merino, and one ply from a Mork Made Fiber Co batt.  The cropped cardigan is for Jessie's wedding.  Jill swatched for Marklee by Elizabeth Doherty in Invictus Yarns Reward in the color Contemplate.  She also did a little bit of spinning with Capistrano Fiber Arts 80/20 Merino/Tussah Silk roving in "Barrier Reef".

What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill is into the Alaska sweater by Camille Descoteaux and the Oshun pullover by Christina Danaee.  She also likes the Vela Shawl by Shara Made.  Jill wants to get a jump start on the holidays with the Hello Winter! by Calle del Limon ornament and the Slice of Pizza Ornament by Michele Wilcox.  She's also going to participate in the Gnome MKAL by Sarah Schira.
