What’s in Our Cups
Jocelyn’s niece wore her Rainbow Scarf.
Diana has been working on 365 Granny Squares, her dad’s socks, and the Bellrose Shawl. She wound yarn for the Distinction Shawl, and washed and blocked the swatch for the Wedding Shawl. She mentions #30daysofhairstyles on Instagram.
Yarn on the Go
Jocelyn took her Coffee Shop Wrap (in progress) to her doctor’s appointment, and out shopping and to the library. She mentions the Stash2Go app.
Diana took her sock to the Assiniboine Park Conservatory to book her wedding venue. She also learned that she can walk and do basic knitting.
Diana missed 4 stitches on one of her 365 Squares.
We went to a yarn tasting/Amano trunk show at our LYS, Wolsley Wool. Diana mentions the other LYS, Ram Wools. Jocelyn mentions Hedgehog Fibres, Ancient Arts, and Addi EasyKnit needles. Diana mentions the Karbonz and Cubics needles. They mention the amazing Summer Silk yarn and Wollmeise. Jocelyn really liked the Apu yarn. Jocelyn bought some Really Seriously Annoyed Grapes.
Jocelyn is going to talk to some school kids about visual impairment.
