Here are the show notes for Episode 35:
Knitting Projects -
Campside shawl by Alicia Plummer. Using Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen in a beautiful blue color. Finished the edging in a blue/grey. Still need to block.
Agleam by Lisa Mutch. Absolutely love it. Using Knitting Fever KFI Silk Sport that I got on sale at LYS, not normally my colors but it's growing on me. Extending the pattern so I can use all the yarn.
Vanilla socks for Christmas 2017. I've never knit socks so quickly before. Using Zitron Unisono for toes/heels/cuffs and knit them TAAT to get equal length out of the Gynx Yarns sock in Ornaments color way that I actually bought in 2014. Love it!
Stalking: Cardigans for kids (A), the Little Rhun, My Honey, to make with a purple cotton yarn I have. Very large urge to cast on another sweater for me though.
Acquisitions - Went birthday shopping on Small Business Saturday and I got myself a sweater quantity! Malabrigo Rios in Lettuce, 1900 yds, all they had. And maybe some more. Gifted a beautiful romney yarn from a knit group friend.
Spinning Projects - n/a
Sewing Projects - wanting to do some sewing with my nieces over Christmas. Putting together a little sewing kit, some easy ornaments for them to stitch, and maybe start a doll's blanket? I've been looking up ideas for sewing with children, and it talks about motor skills and coordination a lot, but not so much the attention span thing. Keeping my fingers crossed.
In the Garden: n/a
In the Beeyard - Need to order my bees for next spring. Don't want to rely on catching an early swarm. Get on it already! PPBA also offers packages for sale.Off Topic: Doing another dinner out with the ladies tomorrow. I have my Christmas card for the flat swap, just need to gather the other stuff so I can put in mail. Working around my depression.
Watching: All the podcasts doing Vlogmas! Thought about doing it too, but we'll be traveling and it looks like a lot of work! Am having a blast watching everyone open their Advent calendars, especially the yarny ones. Broncos are not having a good season, but I'm still cheering them on.
Thanks for watching!
