Episode 28: It's Snowing!

Welcome viewers! Glad to have you all back!
I am DaniGirlCO on Instagram, Periscope and Ravelry.
Here are the show notes for Episode 28:  
On the Needles: 
Knitting Projects - 
FO's: Man Thing hat for Mr. HPL, in Malabrigo Rios in Pearl Ten color way.  Hubby calls it purple, even though it's a dark grey.  Added to my PigskinParty2016 end zone thread.

Kiama cardigan out of my handspan.  From Berrocco, which means Norah Gaughn.  US size 9 needles.  Over half done, ran out of handspan.  Ordered more fiber, but it's not the same.  Had to go with Ashland Bay merino roving in Sage, because I couldn't find the Ashford Fibres merino/silk blend in sage.  Ashford had other color ways I could find online, but not the Sage.  I did an internet search, looked on Webs, Paradise Fibers, etc.
Transverse cardigan by Ann Weaver out of Cascade Eco+, actually swatched for this.  Size 8 needles.  Adjusted pattern slightly so I could do sleeves in the round vs flat.  Right sleeve finished, front/back started.
Blueberry waffle socks out of Opal in summer colors.  I'm going to frog out the heel because I don't like the way it fits.

Stalking - Hermione Hearts Ron for my niece who loves Harry Potter

Acquisitions - some batiks for strip swap, neutrals for hexis, ordered lavender yarn, accidentally got worsted vs dk

Spinning Projects -
none, I'm waiting for the fiber to come in.

Under the Needle:
Sewing Projects - 
Working on the binding for my double wedding quilt table runner, cut on the bias

In the Garden: Nothing.

In the Beeyard - 

Off Topic:  
Watching: Grocery Girls are back!  It's only been a little while while Traci was on vacation, but I've missed them!
Waiting on getting the new roof installed.  We're back on the list, had materials delivered but snow is getting in the way.  From 80 degrees F to snow!
Thanksgiving is next week!  So soon!  Thinking about making some Christmas cards to send out.
Visited Phoenix again to spend time with the family and had a great time.  I think it helps with my depression, not just seeing the nieces and my sister but being placed into their schedule.  I do better with a schedule, and I know that.  That's one of my therapy goals, establishing and keeping to my own schedule.

Thanks for watching!
