Episode 24 - "Beh-Beh?"


Thank you so much for joining us for Episode 24. Today is Friday, 1/30/15

What We're Wearing:

* Linda is wearing the cowl she made from the yarn she spun from Peggy at the 100th Sheep

* Brianne is wearing the Traveling Woman shawl



Gooseberries:

* Linda got her mammogram and bone density scan today. Take care of yourselves!!!

* Brianne seeing the final movie in the series of The Hobbit on IMAX



What We're Knitting:

* Linda is knitting scissor fob/needle holder in the shape of hearts that she is going to sell

* Brianne is knitting Featherweight, Sockhead


What Came Off The Needles:

* Linda finished more crocheted cowls!


* Brianne finished Ms Wick


Spinning!:

* Linda spun a white and green yarn with some striped areas. She's been finding ways to use little bits of wool. She also played with a tighter ply. Linda noticed that it lost a lot of it's squishiness.

* Brianne plied a skein of white BFL. It looks significantly better than her first skein of yarn.  Yay! Plying, washing and thwacking cover a multitude of sins!


Are You Kidding Me?!:

* Mom un-knit more than she knit

* Brianne found plying using the inner and outer of a single skein to be really difficult


Gilding The Lily:

* Brianne went crazy with her Christmas money at The Loopy Ewe


It's a Good Thing!:

* Linda watched a series on Netflix called World War II: The Last Heroes.

* Brianne is so happy that Owen got another clean bill of health from his oncologist and that he will be able to get his port-a-cath removed after April!
