Ep. 105 - Most Adorable Blocking Ever

Episode 105 is finally up!  I hope you are all doing well.

What I've Finished:
Jill finally wrapped up her Dash Away Reindeer by Sara Elizabeth Kellner out of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Briar Heather and other scrap yarns.  Her Rav page here.  This was sent to her swap partner along with a tiny glove ornament knit from the Mini-Me pattern by Julia Mueller.  She used scrap sock yarn for this.  Her Rav page here.  Jill also finished and blocked her Soldotna Crop by Caitlin Hunter.  She used Malabrigo Rios in Denim, Sandback, Valentina and Magenta.

My Current Fix:
Jill's still slowly working on her Fox Paws stole by Xandy Peters out of Knit Picks Palette.  Her Rav page here.  She started a Compass baby blanket by Buttonnose Crochet out of Lion Brand Mandala in Pixie.  She also cast-on a Baker Jo (little) by Jessika Ambada out of Fil&Tropia Wise Fox Stellina fingering weight leftovers held double.  She also finished the piecing and backing of the Frolic Quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew.

What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill loves Festival of Stitches by Lisa Hannes, which was originally a Mystery KAL.  She's into the Hands cardigan by Chantal Belisle.  She also thinks it would be funny to make Facehugger by Neetza Drake for baby/maternity photos.  She likes two baby patterns, Genevieve's Tube Socks from Knitmore Girls and the Hope Romper Dress by Nomad Stitches.
