Episode 32 - I Like Smiling!

Thank you so much for joining us for Episode 32! Today is Monday, 5/11/15

Thank you to those of us on Ravelry who were checking on us during our unintended sabbatical.  Love that!

What We're Wearing:

* Linda is wearing Mother's Day gift from Brianne... A Sockhead Hat!

* Brianne is wearing her Featherweight


* Linda loved being at Yarn Fest
A FAN! Jan who is JJay on Ravelry.  
New Friends!  JRAJN and Sweetpeaknitter 
Oopsie! Mary Beth Temple MBTemple

* Brianne loved seeing Owen perform as Noodles the pirate in the school drama club performance of Peter Pan. 

Jessica from Chambersburg Pennsylvania. Purls of Faith podcast.  Her blog can be found here at

What We're Knitting:

* Linda is knitting Wingspan out of the Maple striping colorway from The 100th Sheep.

* Brianne is knitting the Tickety Boo For You socks, Ravenclaw socks and a Sockhead Hat (#4). The Sockhead Hat, made out of Jojoland Melody, is going to be ripped out, though, because of the 5 breaks in yarn in just 1.5" of ribbing. That's just ridiculous!

What Came Off The Needles:

* Linda finished (mostly) a rug!  She also finished a wash cloth test knit for Tabitha's Heart

* Brianne finished her Featherweight! Thank goodness!!! She also finished Mom's Sockhead Hat, because who doesn't want a wool and mohair hat in the middle of May?


* Linda is spinning fun yarn for The 100th Sheep

* Brianne is still spinning the Fibernymph Dye Works. She's done with the first 2 oz and is getting ready to start the second half

Are You Kidding Me?!:

* Linda is practically perfect in every way!

* Brianne kept messing up the striping sequence on the Ravenclaw socks. Apparently on some days, even counting to 2 is difficult!

Gilding The Lily:

* Linda bought Oxford punch needle

* Brianne bought a skein of Lion Brand Heartland in the Glacier Bay color and bought 8 oz of Spun Right Round BFL in the Beach colorway in a Ravelry destash 

It's a Good Thing!:

* Linda loves Brianne.  I'm thankful for a daughter who not only introduced me to knitting but now podcasts with me

* Brianne loves that we've been podcasting for one year! Yay for us all!


* Antiprocrastination April

The winner is #7, Sarahjg2! She knitted an Another Door Opens shawl out of handspun! Congratulations, Sarah. Contact me and we'll arrange to get your new project bag to you!
And many thanks to Sasha from Stitched by Sasha, who donated this month's beautiful bag. Go check out her shop!
