Ep. 97 - Giftalong kickoff

I'm having trouble embedding the audio.  You can find it at archive.org here.

Jill has been super busy, but finally was able to find time to check in with you guys!  Happy
 December everyone!



What I've Finished:
She got some additional Jen Goodie fiber to finish off her Myndie shawl by Ambah O'Brien.  Her Rav page here.  She made another set of reuseable makeup removers out of a Jenni Calo alligator flannel from Connecting Threads.  She also made a Gnome de Plume by Sarah Schira using a mini from Dyed by Hand Yarns Tough Sock in Silver Screen.  She also used some Berroco Sox leftovers and Malabrigo Sock in some green.  Her Rav page here.  This is her first project for the Indie Designer Giftalong.



My Current Fix:
Jill was making good progress on her Ondawa by Michele Wang in Malabrigo Rios in Purpuras but put it aside for giftalong projects.  She also started a Framework Bralette by Jessie Mae Martinson in some Capistrano Fiber Arts handspun.  She started a pair of Trap-a-Zoid socks by Sarah Jordan using Koigu leftovers.  She's working on a pair of Nara fingerless mittens by Wondrlanding using Malabrigo Finito in the Chispas colorway.  She's also crocheting the Totum Tee by NomadStitches in Knit Picks Comfy Fingering in the Hollyberry colorway.

What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill likes the My Cowl Canvas by Carolyn Bloom.  She has some favorite holiday patterns, including the Frostvale Snowflake by Julia Hart, Winter Folk Friends by Esther Braithwaite and Dash Away Reindeer by Sara Elizabeth Kellner.  Her new favorite crochet patterns are Maraska by Elena Fedotna and It Calls Me by Lily Go.  She loves the colorwork Wilkhaven Sweater by Emily K. Williams, the by coat Amalia by Felipa Carneiro and the interestingly constructed By the Campfire by Rachel Illsley.  She also loves the Shik'is Headband by Jennifer Berg.
