What I've Finished:

Jill made some Genevieve's Tube Socks by Jasmin Canty in leftover MadTosh Sock in the Holi Festival colorway.  She finished her baby mobile out of the Arne & Carlos Embroidered Birds pattern right before the baby was born out of Knit Picks Palette and a little Holstgarn SuperSoft.  She knit a Ruth Baby Ginsburg sweater by Park Williams out of black and white Caron Simply Soft.  Her Rav page here. She also knit herself a matching Purl Soho Garter Ear Flap Hat out of GnarledPaw Proper DK to match Lucas and Starling's hats out of a pink colorway.  And she made a Christmas stocking for Starling out of Cascade 220 Christmas Red with the St. Peters Port Stocking by Anne Hansen.  Her Rav page here.

My Current Fix:

Jill is knitting the Posy cardigan by Marzena Kolacek out of Invictus Yarns Inconquerable Sole in the NoCKRs 2020 colorway.  She started some stockinette socks out of Opal Socks in the Cake Pops colorway, but just realized they are too small, so will probably have to rip them back to the ribbing and restart.  She started creating the Supersize Wreath by Annaboo's House, but got paralyzed by making choices about the colors of pompoms and didn't finish in time for Christmas.  She also started the 12 Days of Christmas sewn felt ornaments by Larissa Holland - MmmCrafts on etsy using wool blend felt from Benzie Design.   She had finished the pear and was working on the partridge by the end of recording.

What I'm Jonesing For:

Jill wanted to make some Festive Hoodie Mug Cozies by Loraine Birchall but didn't get around to it.  She loves the Aberdeen Socks pattern by Knox Mountain Knit Co and plans to make some for Starling.  She likes the free headband pattern Simone by Emilie Luis.  She also likes the newish brioche hat pattern Cabriola by Katrin Schubert.  Jill bought the Making No. 10 issue and loves the Love Owls by Susan B. Anderson and the Late Bloomer Mittens by Kristen Ledgett.
