This was Take (freakin’) Four of recording today. Me and the camera…grrrr. I was far
more put together and coherent in Take One and Two. Sigh.

Welcome to the new members of the 90% Knitting group on Ravelry, and thanks so much
for your thoughts and prayers for our son in Afghanistan. He’s all recovered from his
injuries and has returned to his unit now.

ON THE NEEDLES:

  • 1. Moody Blues Socks, plain vanilla sock, my hand-dyed, stilllll on #2.
    US1/2.25mm needles.
  • 2. Autumn Dream Scarf, pattern by Wendy Johnson, yarn by Indie Dyer in
    Dragonfly. US6/4mm needles.
  • 3. Slouchy Cardigan, vaguely following Helene Roux’ pattern from Greetings from
    Knit Cafe, Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy yarn, on US7s/4.5mm needles.

FINISHED OBJECTS:

ON THE WHEEL:

  • 1. Started the Knit Girllls SAL last Friday. Spun half of my Tempted fiber so far.

SHOP UPDATE:

  • 1. Lots of sock yarn this week, mostly 100% Merino. There will be some short
    skeins and a few new colorways featuring my new favorites shades of pink and
    purple.
  • 2. Two new colorways in the light fingering 535 yard skeins.
  • 3. I dyed up mini-striping yarns w/ coordinating semi-solids in worsted with
    monsters and mittens in mind.
  • 4. Featured spinning fiber this week is BFL.
  • 5. There will be more bags this week (I don’t think I remembered to say this on
    the videocast!)
  • 6. This week’s shop update will be on Friday between 6 – 7 p.m. eastern. Hoping
    to give people who work during the day a shot at catching the update!

RESOURCES/RECOMMENDATIONS:

10%:

  • 1. This week’s Quickie KAL will be Susie’s Reading Mitts, by Susie Rogers and
    Janelle Masters.
  • 2. Got the basement cleaned out enough that I can access my workout equipment
    again! Time to get busy! I feel so sluggy.
  • 3. I can’t help it…I feel the urge for a new tattoo. Soon. Very soon. Stay tuned!

    I love the gnome book! My husband and I actually came across the original printing of the book from 1976 when we were in an antique store about a month ago. We bought it because it was so cool! Glad to hear that they re-printed it! I love the hand-written field journal feel of the book.

      Yes, it’s very cool. I don’t think I mentioned it on the podcast, but this edition came with a bunch of prints of the illustrations that you could frame if you wanted. :)
