Ep. 102 - Hand Foot and Mouth

I drew some winners for the 100th episode drawing!  Stick around to the end to find out if you won!


What I've Finished:
Jill bound off the second Bacon & Eggs Booties by Kathie Popadin using sock yarn scraps, Malabrigo Sock in Natural, Malabrigo Mechita in Frank Ochre and Pagewood Farms Chugiak in Fruit Freeze.  Her Rav page here.  She also finished Archer by Elizabeth Doherty.using FilandTropia Wise Fox Stellina in orchid pink/purple and Forbidden Fiber Co. Pride fingering in Silver Mist.  Her incomplete Rav page here.  She's happy enough with it, but thinks she would have preferred it with less ease.  Jill also sewed a dozen masks using the Craft Passion (or variation on) pattern out of some random quilting fabric and flannel.



My Current Fix:
Jill is working on Herbarium by Lisa Hannes out of The Royal Bee Yarn Co. fingering in the colorways "Nina says have your teal cake and eat it too!" and "Phillip says don't curry, be happy!".  This is for the #shawlstayhomekal she's doing with some friends on Instagram.  Join in!  She's also knitting away at the Dash Away Reindeer by Sara Elizabeth Kellner out of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Briar Heather.  She's tempted to make the Forest Gnome with Santa suit to match the reindeer.  She's also still working on her Combo Spin project after being inspired by a program at the Greater Los Angeles Spinning Guild.  She's about 2/3 of her way through the singles of the 9 ounces.



What I'm Jonesing for:
Jill was mostly jonesing for shawls this time around.  She loves the Bautista shawl by Celia McAdam Cahill, the Swallowtail Shawl by Kulli Maslova, Cathedral Grove by Romi Hill, Squash Blossom Shawl by Bristol Ivy and Very Airy by Katrin Schubert.  She also purchased the Thataway colorwork hat pattern by Claire Slade.
