Ep. 92 - Little Kitchen Cotton

I did a poorly worded statement towards the end of the episode, but wanted to put into writing that I want my podcast space (blog and Ravelry group) to be a safe space.  Any hate speech, racism, or intolerance will be removed and blocked.  You guys have always been respectful, so thank you!  If I say or do something offensive or insensitive, please call me on it!

What I've Finished:
Jill finished her Panjereh top by Christina Danaee out of The Plucky Knitter Solo in Under the Sea and Malabrigo Mechita in Frank Ochre.  She also finished her Tour de Fleece spinning project using Goodie Supply Company Shetland fiber in Get Off My Rainbow and naked Shetland/Pearl/Silk.  Her Rav page here.

My Current Fix:
Jill completed the knitting of the Baby's Kaftan by Debbie Bliss in Rowan Cotton Glace.  She still needs to do the embroidery.  She's working on the body of her Panda by Susan B. Anderson using Knit Picks bare Capretta, Malabrigo Sock in Eggplant and maybe Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool.  She also spun the singles from a 2.8 oz batt from Mork Made Fiber Co.

What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill loves the Pengweeno baby/kid cardigan by Stephen West.  She's into the As If Tee by Shay Johnson and Fishing for Compliments by Maschenwunder Manja Vogelsang.  She likes the unique border on the Dragonfly's Path shawl by Jennifer Weissman.  Her only favorited crochet pattern this week is the Devon Hat by Weiyan Huang.  She also enjoys the Cat in a Bag series by Anna Hrachovec and Baby Bok Choy by Sara Elizabeth Kellner.

Ep. 91 - Mathin' Really Good

Annie is back for Ep. 91!

What We've Finished:
Annie finished her Breeze Racerback tank by Jessie Mae Martinson out of Earl Grey Fiber Co Gunpowder. 
She is also almost done with the crocheted coverup Davallia by Isa Catepillan out of Twist Yarns of Intrigue Alpaca/Linen yarn in a grey taupe color.  Her Rav page is here.  She substituted a macramé border with added beads for the trim.

Jill finished up her pom pom animal of Olivia using Knit Picks Palette and instructions from the Trikotri book she bought in Tokyo.

Our Current Fix:
Annie is working on the Ripple Bralette also by Jessie Mae Martinson using Deep Hue Sea yarn.
Jill is still working on Panjereh by Christina Danaee out of Plucky Knitter Solo in the Under the Sea colorway and Malabrigo Mechita in Frank Ochre.  She's also making progress on Baby's Kaftan by Debbie Bliss using Rowan Cotton Glace in 815.  She's prepping for Tour de Fleece using two braids of Goodie Supply Co.  One is 100% Shetland in the Get Off My Rainbow and the other is 72% Shetland, 14% Pearl and 14% Silk in Naked/undyed.

What We're Jonesing For:
Annie wants to make Light Rain by Joji Locatelli from Interpretations Vol. 3.  She'll using Fiber & Hue Well Rounded Fingering in Spiced Chai.
Jill has favorited a few shawls: Banrion by Playing With Fibre from the most recent Knitty, Play It By Queer by Shanel Wu, and Berry Crumble Shawl by Xandy Peters.  She likes a couple that would be a good use of some handspun including the Comfort Zone Tank by Tif Neilan and Winston by La Maison Rililie.  She really wants to make Panda by Susan B. Anderson.  Jill and Annie both love Black Sheep, White Sheep and Oliver Pig by Susan B. Anderson.
