Ep. 106 - Crafting with Glitter

I hope you're being safe out there!!  Here's the latest from me! 


I think this is embedding weird - you can follow this link to listen if its not working on the webisite: https://archive.org/details/skeinenable-ep-106

Warning: The pattern links go to Ravelry pages.  Please do not follow the links if Ravelry is harmful to you at the moment! 

What I've Finished:
Jill knit up baby hat using the Baker Jo (little) pattern by Jessika Ambada out of Fil&Tropia Wise Fox Stellina yarn held double and Forbidden Fiber Co Pride in Mist.  She finished up the quilting on her baby quilt using the pattern Frolic Quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew in a kit from Connecting Threads.  She sewed up another Connecting Threads kit, this one put together by Shannon Fabrics for the My Bubba giraffe playmat.  She also finished spinning 4oz of Goodie Supply Co. 80/20 S. American Wool/Viscose in Naked Bubblegum.  She got only about 254 yards of a bouncy fingering weight yarn.  Her Rav page here.



My Current Fix:
For the rest of Tour de Fleece, Jill has been working on 100% Superfine Merino from Greenwood Fiberworks in a "Camo" OOAK colorway.  Her Rav page here.  She's continuing with her long term project, the Fox Paws by Xandy Peters out of Knit Picks Palette.  She's plugging away at her crochet baby blanket, Compass by Buttonnose Crochet out of Lion Brand Mandala yarn in Pixie.  She's also started a Purl Soho Garter Ear Flap Hat in a baby size using Gnarled Paw Proper DK in the Mexican Blue Wing Butterfly colorway to match Lucas's hat.



What I'm Jonesing for:
Jill received the Fingering Entrechat pattern by Frogginette/Lisa Chemery from Kiyoko from her knitting guild.  She likes the newborn hat Pirouette Beanie by Fiona Oliver.  She also likes the adult Momentum Beanie by Benjamin Matthews.  She loves the pattern and concept for the emPower People cowl/kerchief by Casapinka.  More about the emPower project here.  Jill's into the cropped tee Tin Roof by Yamagara.  Although she hates seagulls, she likes the Albatross pattern by Rachel Borello Carroll.
