What’s In Our Cup
Diana is enjoying some Vanilla Bean tea from Fools & Horses in her Northern Knits Podcast mug.
Jocelyn is enjoying some Buddha’s Blend from David’s Tea in the dinosaurs mug.
Jocelyn worked on:
- March Socks out of Cloud 9 Fiberworks Cumulus Sock in Rainbow Connection
- Zadie Sweater by Mercedes Tarasovich out of Cloudborn Highland Worsted in Slate Heather
- the very first Jocelyn-designed shawl
Diana worked on:
- Rivers Wrap (podcast anniversary project) by Shannon Cook out of Cascade 220 in Natural, Burgundy, Green, Camel, Vashon Island Heather
- Wedding Shawl by Susan Pandorf out of 100% Lamb’s Wool
- February/March Socks (vanilla toe-up with a fish lips kiss heel) out of Online Supersocke
Jocelyn dropped a stitch on her March socks.
Diana’s lifeline on her Wedding Shawl ran away.
Yarn on the Go
Jocelyn went everywhere this week and managed to sneak in some doctor waiting room sock knitting, coffee shop shawl knitting while caffeinating and watching Critical Role on YouTube. Then she was off to the bi-weekly Knit and Nosh event down at Across the Board Game Cafe. Add in one last-minute lunch date with her sister and grandparents and you can begin to see how quickly a week goes by.
Diana went places but didn’t have time to knit.
Sew Little Time
To get ready for the spring/summer craft markets, Jocelyn has been finishing up her production sewing for those events before she goes on vacation. She is also worked on some summer dresses for herself.
Diana showed off her birthday acquisitions which included some decorative buttons, a fabulous gift card for the local yarn store, some cotton, Loops and Threads Charisma in Northern Lights and Dark Purple, and last but not least another Caron Big Cake in Pistachio Macaron. She also got a lovely pin upcycled from an old piano key.
Jocelyn has been thinking about more KALs as she does. She was able to catch the Grocery Girls Podcast live and has fallen in love with the idea of joining in on the Sweaterpaloza KAL they are running in their Ravelry group.
Jocelyn enjoys participating in the Fiber Friends KAL whenever she can even if she doesn’t finish things on time. So, of course, she is joining in on their April 1 sweater cast on.
The CozyUp WithTheStitchinSisters Podcast are starting a cotton KAL with Creek Gardens Crafts to make a crescent shaped shawl in some amazing color so she needs to order some yarn and wait for that pattern to drop. The girls are also currently doing a Stephen West KAL and Jocelyn has that Speckle and Pop Shawl she needs to finish and a KAL sounds like just the motivation she needs.
