Ep. 101 - Shawl Stay Home

I hope you and your families are safe and healthy!

What I've Finished:
Jill spun and plied the rest of her Wonderland Dyeworks 80/20 Merino/Silk braid in the Rain Storm.  She got 357 yards out of 4.3oz.  Her Rav page here.  She also crocheted a baby hat, Anupriya by Betsy Myles from the Berroco website.  She used Red Heart Heart & Sole self-striping yarn in Mellow Stripe.

My Current Fix: 
Jill is working on Archer by Elizabeth Doherty out of FilandTropia Wise Fox Stellina in a purple orchid color and Forbidden Fiber Company Pride in Mist.  She's finished the body, and still has the sleeves to go.  Her Rav page here.  She's very close to finishing the Bacon & Eggs Booties by Kathie Popadin out of leftover Malabrigo Sock, Malabrigo Mechita and Pagewood Farms Chugiak.

What I'm Jonesing for:
Jill bought some Malabrigo Rios in Camel, and intends to use that with the Knit Picks Fable Fur to make a baby bomber jacket.  She's about to cast on any moment for a mosaic shawl by Lisa Hannes.  She is looking at the Herbarium and the Laurelie shawls.  There will be a knitalong for mosaic shawls, with the tag #shawlstayhomekal.
She is impressed with the Frog and Toad pattern by Kristina Ingrid McGowan.  She likes the Sweetheart Bomber by Amy Appel.  The Volans Cardigan0 by Whitney Howard is currently free and awesome.  Jill likes the Arte Nuova top by Rachel Illsley and the Dissent Pullover by Andrea Rangel.  Two crochet afghans that Jill likes are the Succulent Spring Hexagon Afghan by Jennifer Pionk and the Confetti Blanket by Rachele Carmona.
