On the PA System

  • Marcy found out about a fun and funny YouTube channel, "I am Brandon Farris." Check his channel out! Look for his learn to knit and learn to crochet videos.
  • Kim recommends checking out the kristy glass knits YouTube channel. Her "Tell me about your Rhinebeck sweater episodes are wonderful (and dangerous for your queue!) and her Halloween ep this year was a hysterical spoof on other video podcasts. 
  • Marcy talked about the 2018 Project Peace by the Healthy Knitter. This is a lovely and worthwhile project during this busy time of year.

Show & Tell

Kim has some new cast ons! She started the Rose Gold shawl by Andrea Mowry using her handspun yarn and a set of gradient minis from Blue Moon Fiber Arts (this is some Stiches West yarn from 2018.) She also cast on her handspun "Gingerbread Christmas' sweater. The pattern is Stillwater by Marie Greene. She did have a huge howler because she didn't read the darn pattern and Kim ended up having to rip out over 16 rows : ( . But, she's back on track now and will be done by 12/1.  Finally, Kim and a knitting friend dyed self stripping sock yarn. She immediately cast on some vanilla socks with the yarn because she was very excited to see how the yarn stripped. 

Marcy has some gorgeous new cast ons the as well! Her 'Just Like Honey' shawl by Lesley Anne Robinson using Aberdeen Wool Co Tangled Gypsies in the brit pop color and Neighborhood fiber Co. capital luxury sport in the rock creek color.  She also cast on the Wool & Honey pullover by Andrea Mowry. She is using Brooklyn Tweed loft in the Tartan color. 

We are Uber Crafty

Kim hand dyed self stripping sock yarn with a friend and it was very fun and also very time consuming! There was lots of uber craftiness with the wedding, rehearsal dinner and day after brunch, but this isn't a wedding podcast!

Marcy has done some sewing. She is making a robe, baby hat, baby onesie, baby sheets, 2T pj shirt and bottoms. 
All the beautiful things Marcy made.

What's on our Black Board?

Have a wonderful couple of weeks and allow your knitting to soothe you during the stressful moments during this Holiday season. Happy Knitting!
