Ep. 113 - I'm My Own Best Friend

 Here's my (unintentional) bi-annual check-in!

Episode link here.

What I've Finished:

Jill finished the mosaic shawl Ephemeris by Debra Gerhard in Long Dog Yarn Bounce Sock First Blush and Teal Torch Knits Sock in Good Til the Last Drop.  Her Rav page here.  She made two Beloved bonnets by Tin Can Knits in Long Dog Yarn DK in the New Growth colorway.  Her Rav page here.  It took a long time to get around to completing Posy by Marzena Kolacek in Invictus Yarns Unconquerable Sole BFL in the NoKRs colorway.  A big thank you to Julie who sent Jill a skein of the yarn to finish the sleeves!  Her Rav page here.  She made a Hanging sloth planter by Hello Happy in Knit Picks Brava Worsted in Almond held double.  She had to make yet another child sized Garter Ear Flap Hat by Purl Soho to replace Starling's that was lost.  She used Leading Men Fiber Arts Box Office in Neon Pencil. Rav page here.  Jill was able to buy the skein from Kitty with a Cupcake when she couldn't find the colorway anywhere.  Jill made a Bukett shawl by Linnea Ornstein for her swap partner out of Malabrigo Arroyo Lavanda with Woolbearers Merino Minis in Teal held double for the contrast colors. Her Rav page here. She also made a Lucky Duckling by Claire Garland out of Knit Picks Swish DK in Semolina and Suss Yarns Fishnet held together.  She used Koigu and Sweet Sparrow scraps for the beak and feet.  Her Rav page here.

My Current Fix:

Jill's been working on vanilla top down socks out of Opal in the Cakepops colorway.  She's currently stalled because she can't find one of her Flexiflip needles.  She started the Toddler Thrum Mittens by Steph Thomson from Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky, but doesn't feel like working on them anymore.  Her only real current knitting project is Raspberry Semifreddo Hat by Natalie Pelykh in Jaggerspun Green Line in the Dark Lilac colorway.  What's really taking up her time is the Animal House cross stitch SAL from Satsuma Street.  

What I'm Jonesing For:

Jill has a couple shawls that she likes, Pressed Flowers by Amy Christoffers and Tremolo by Claire Slade.  She loves the Plumetis by Julie Knits in Paris, Paragon by Sylvia Watts-Cherry and Kari by Natasja Hornby.  She like the Nurture Bralette by Celine Feyten Designs but doesn't know how into wearing bralettes she is.
