Episode 18 – Je ne parle pas anglais

What’s in Our Cup

Jocelyn has Passionfruit Lemonade from Starbucks and we both have Simply Lemon with Raspberry.

Woolly Workings

Jocelyn has been working on 365 Days of Granny Squares by YarnUtopia, yet another Textured Triangle Shawl by Diane Moyer out of Lion Brand Landscapes in Desert Spring, the Reyna Shawl by Noora Laivola out of Bernat Premium  in Red and Black Tweed, the Bendy Arrow Shawl by Charlotte Bory out of Berroco Summer Silk in White and Hedgehog Fibres Sock in Poison, Christmas gift Cat Hats by Kat Coyle, and Christmas gift Lost Souls Shawl by Maryetta Roy out of Bernat Premium in Warm Rose.

Jocelyn mentions CozyUp WithTheStitchinSisters and the Hudson shawl.

Diana has been working on the Textured Triangle Shawl by Diane Moyer out of Red Heart Soft Classic in Dark Leaf and Wheat, and the Bellrose Shawl by Martina Behm out of Sheep En Soie in Remembering Rose (this is the first Strickmich! Club package of the year), and the Find Your Fade Shawl by Andrea Mowry out of stash yarn from her travels.

Sew Little Time

Jocelyn is awaiting some notions to finish up some bags for the soon-to-be-open Etsy shop. She cut the fabric for a new dress for herself. Parts for her new old Singer machine are in transit.

Spinning Yarns

Diana has been spinning every day for Tour de Fleece like she said she would. Superwash merino top from Hilori’s Magical Yarnorium in Eye of Jupiter on the Electric Eel Wheel 5 from Dreaming Robots.

Super satisfying video

Fibre Flubs

Jocelyn missed some increases on the Bendy Arrow Shawl and ended up restarting the whole thing.
