Episode 90 – Bonus Round


Lots of things guys –

I may be at the SSK market! I’ll keep you posted!

Winners of the Start-along –
Laurie521 won the Daizieknits yarn, CaffeinatedGert won the Fondant Fibre punies! Congrats, ladies!

AND We’re going into a Bonus Round! This month, keep showing me what you’ve started! Using the same threads, start opening a new thread for each thing you start. I’m giving away a skein of superwash merino fingering weight from A Riot of Color and a one-of-a-kind batt from a friend at guild.

FO – Indy Dishcloth out of I Love this Yarn! Stripes in Too Pink.

WIPs –

Spinning –
KnittyandColor merino in Tidepool colorway. Split down the middle lengthwise, spinning end-to-end, will chain ply.

Acquisitions –

  • Some decals to put on my spinning wheel from Old Time Pottery
  • My yarn from the yarn crawl came in – Shepards Wool 3 ply Merino in Sage. SO SOFT.

Tour de Fleece!
Team Caffeinated 2014 – I really have no goal set yet beyond spinning every day.

Still gotta knit that SPAKAL sweater, need to work more from patterns I already own, I finished some socks for the hubs (yay!), and I still have a hairpin lace project, the Sipalu Bag, Radiating Suede Star AfghanAugusta cardigan](/projects/Mandikat/augusta-cardigan), and The Oncoming Storm.

Thank you CoggieTM for KISSy the Sheep!

Episode 55 – A Little Bummed


Blip won’t get me down, dangit!

Today I talk about…

….the Prediction giveaway (post if you think I’ll have the Light and Up shawl completed by SAFF, if you’re right and the RNG loves you, you win Eucalan!)  That fiber came from Urban Gypz.

….the Doctor Who-Along.  Anything inspired by Doctor Who.  Lots of pattern suggestions in the thread.  I’m making a shawl… calling it The Oncoming Storm.  Difficulties this week.  Fiber from Daizieknits. Color Wheel has a new colorway.

….Guild meeting and lovely day!!!  I got some stuffs.  Shame on me.  And here’s a link to Knit Me Happy’s tutorial.  And Yarn Haven. And Old Mill Bread Company on facebook.

Episode 54 – Circles!


Fun episode today.

First, the Mercedes craft-along is over, and mama2LilynDevon – you won the Nooch Fiber yarn!! Congrats!

Second – the Who-along has started! I talk about the fun with my The Oncoming Storm and it’s beads (fiber from DaizieKnits on etsy).

I finished a mug cozy and show you how to crochet a circle!

Also working on – Paul’s Black Socks (they are simple skyp socks out of yarn from knit and fiber creations), Augusta Cardigan (out of New England Knits), and Light and Up.

Spun some on the Gnomeacre’s Gnomeberry, who’s shop is here.

Got a new bag for my Little Gem! The California Pak Big Eazy Rolling Tote from Amazon. If you want one, you can do a more extensive search on google for it and find even more patterns.

And finally, will I finish my Light and Up to enter at SAFF? If your prediction is correct and the RNG likes you, you’ll win a sample pack of Eucalan! Visit the thread stickied in the group for details!
