Episode 46 – A La Brisk

What’s In Our Cup

Jocelyn is drinking Starbucks Blonde Espresso. Diana is drinking Second Cup Eggnog Spice coffee.

Cool Threads

Jocelyn has been wearing the Coffee Shop Shawl, Cowl With No Name, and Cat Hat.

Diana’s Bloomsbury Mitts and Wonder Woman Wrap live at work. She has also been wearing the Lindsay SlouchSockhead slouch, and the Rainbowside Shawl.

Woolly Workings

Jocelyn has been working on the My Sisters Shawl by Cozy Up Designs out of Manos Del Uruguay Alegria in Antigua and Paula, and Noble Ruby Designs in Swallowtail, and a pair of toe-up socks out of Dye for Ewe‘s My Kind of Holiday Baking.

Diana has finished the first sock in a pair of Hermione’s FLKH Socks out of S.R. Kertzer On Your Toes 4 Ply with Aloe Vera in ON223801, and worked on the Rivers Wrap by Shannon Cook out of Cascade 220 in Natural, Burgundy, Green, Camel, Vashon Island Heather.

Yarn on the Go

Diana is very in love with her job, and the atrium is a great place to take pictures of knitting. She also did some knitting at a family dinner.

Jocelyn went all over the place for errands etc., and still accomplished some knitting.

Fibre Flubs

Jocelyn is having so many problems with her My Sisters Shawl. The universe does not want her to finish it.

Diana accidentally made the first of the Hermione’s FLKH Socks a little too big, so now they’re a present for Jocelyn.

Spinning Yarns

Jocelyn continues to train her kitten not to eat her fibre.
