Finished Objects

It has been a hot minute since we have podcasted and so we wanted to share our FO's with you. Kim has finished the crocheted afghan that she made for her son and new daughter in law for their wedding gift. She is very happy to be finished with this large project and she was thrilled to be able to gift this to her favorite newlyweds!

She also knit 8 baby hats for her niece who is pregnant with twins. She gifted them already and forgot to take pictures of the last few, but here is the project page. Both of these were a labor of love and Kim was very happy to gift them to her family and now she's excited to get back to her regularly scheduled knitting!

Marcy has finished her beautiful  #17 Color Block Poncho by Rosemary Drysdale. This sweater/poncho is super cute and Marcy has been getting a lot of wear out of it. She made some mods and they'll all be listed on her project page. 

Marcy also finished her Ramble Shawl by Andrea Mowry. This fun brioche shawl is stunning and there are so many color combinations to play with. She is now hooked on brioche again!

Kim and Marcy were very torn about which magazine they liked best! They're all beautiful with amazing photographs and gorgeous knitting patterns as well as many other crafts and interesting articles mixed in. 

When we had to choose, we both were very drawn to the Poet pullover from the latest Laine magazine, issue 6. 

What's on our Black Board?

Thank you for joining us! We hope that your knitting is going well and we look forward to seeing you again in episode 60.
