Episode 14 - The Lone Ranger

Thank you so much for joining us for Episode 14. Today is September 5, 2014

What We're Wearing:

* Brianne is wearing the My So Called Scarf she knit way back in 2006


* Brianne found 2 new 5 star iTunes reviews and 3 other ratings!!! Thank you so much!!! When you give us ratings and reviews on iTunes it helps other people find us easier. :)

What We're Knitting:

* Brianne is knitting Flax sweater for Owen and started a Pogona for myself! The Pogona pattern was gifted to me by a very sweet viewer.  Thank you so much, friend!

Are You Kidding Me?!:

* Brianne started the Spring Forward socks and made it an inch into the pattern before she got bored.  It got ripped out right away.

It's a Good Thing!:

* Brianne is starting to re-block some of her shawls in the hopes that cooler weather will arrive soon!

Book Review:

Brianne reviewed Scarf Style 2 which was published in 2013 by Interweave Press. This book was purchased by Brianne (so this is not a sponsored review). Overall, she found the book to be well thought out and the photography is lovely.  There are a lot of great patterns in it and more than a few that she would very much like to make.  Brianne enjoyed the variety of scarves, shawls and cowls as well as the fact that there are a range of yarns used.


Fresh Face Giveaway

As we learn to embrace who we are, we are challenging our viewers to take a picture of themselves without their makeup on and post it in the Fresh Face thread on our board.

The contest will run from Sun, August 31 until Sat, Sep 13. One entry per person and no chatter in that thread. The winner will be chosen by random number generator.

The prize will be a beautiful skein of yarn from Freshwater Purls and a notions bag from The Sampler Girl.

Bless your Heart:

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. 
Isaiah 26:3
