Jill is getting close to her due date! So baby project galore!
(Link to podcast host/stream here.)
Note: Project and pattern links are to Ravelry pages.
What I've Finished:
Jill completed the Compass crochet blanket by Buttonnose Crochet. Her Rav page here. She used Lion Brand Mandala in the Pixie colorway. She used exactly two skeins. She finished the Garter Earflap Hat from Purl Soho in the baby size, using Gnarled Paw Proper DK in Mexican Blue-Winged Butterfly. Her Rav page here. For her final spin for Tour de Fleece, she chain-plied the Greenwood Fiberworks Merino Superfine in the "Camo" OOAK colorway. She ended up with about 379 yards of a fingering (not worsted like I said in the episode) 3-ply. The Rav page for the yarn here. She also made the Fingering Entrechat by Lisa Chemery (Frogginette Knits) out of Spun Right Round SW Sock in Combat boots & Baby doll dresses colorway.
My Current Fix:
Jill's working on the matching Fingering Entrechat Bonnet using the same Spun Right Round yarn, in the 0-3months size. She's also making a Baby Yoda for Babies cardigan by Arianna Soloway for a friend out of Berroco Vintage in a taupe colorway doubled, and Craftsmart Value Economique in the sage colorway, also doubled for the hood. Her Rav page here. She first tried to use Knit Picks Chroma and Cloudborn Worsted held together for the hood. She also did a little work on her Fox Paws by Xandy Peters.
What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill still has some plans for additional baby crafting. She wants to sew burp cloths, breastfeeding nipple pads, and knit up some baby socks. She is going to use the Embroidered Birds pattern from Arne & Carlos bird book in Knit Picks Palette for a baby mobile. Jill wants to make the Rio Calina Cowl by Cat Bordhi. Cat made the announcement about upcoming death on her blog. The KAL hashtag is #4catbordhi. Jill kind of wants to make the cowl out of purple and to make it as part of the emPower People project. She's into the one-skein Amoretto shawl by Nadia Cretin-Lechenne. She also bought the Pink Velvet pullover by Andrea Mowry as part of her birthday sale.
Jill bought some Romney from Goodie Supply Co. for the Greater Los Angeles Spinning Guild Spin-a-long in the Safer at Home colorway, and matching Safer at Home Tonal 5 (a mint color). Jill also received the Tin Roof pattern by Yamagara from Melinda/Yarnderwoman.
