The HOTTEST new item for the knitter/crocheter in your life:
The Extreme Worm Binder Single or Double. I love mine!! Thanks Trish and Lisa!
For the spinner in your life, a Yarn Meter from Nancy's Knit Knacks is the perfect thing! Thanks Tamara 626!
For those of you with SSS (Second Sock Syndrome) and those of who just LOVE knitting socks, we have created the SSK (Surrogate Sock Knitters) Club on Ravelry! Check it out!
And speaking of Second Sock Syndrome, Barking Dog Yarns has created the perfect solution! Opposites Attract sock yarn! Here's my pair, Arthur and Guinevere.
Here's a reminder to be thinking about what yarn you want to use for our KAL (Knit-A-Long) in February. We're knitting the February Lady's Sweater, an easy beginner sweater.
ON MY NEEDLES:
Spiraluscious #1 Finito!
Spiraluscious #2 in it's second of three repeats
"There and Back Again" Sweater (formerly "Hong Kong Garden") coming along nicely...again.
My mother's Zephyr's Shawl is on it's last repeat and then comes the edging. This thing sure is teeny!
And last but not least, my February Lady's sweater which inspired me to suggest our KAL. This is such a fun and easy knit. Just don't know if I'll have the nerve to wear this wild green! It is knit in the "Green and Speckled Frogs" colorway from Dragonfly Fibers.
ON MY POLLY:
Yes, that's right! I am now the proud owner of the amazing Pocket Wheel.
Mine is named Polly. What will you name yours?
And here's what I just finished spinning up.
Moonwood Farm's Moonbeams "Juliet" 2.6 oz. 30% Alpaca ,25% Bamboo, 25% Milk, 20% Rambouillet, and Angelina.
Now to ply it! Oooh!
And in case you've never seen Bernese Mountain Dog fur. Here it is.
I've put a clothespin in the picture so you can see just how much fur this is! Thanks SimplySilly!!
IN OUR WINEGLASS:
Caymus Conundrum. One of our very favorites wines! We never open a bottle without savoring the very first sip and following it with, "Wow, that is a good wine!" I hope you will give it a try and let us know what you think.
Well, unfortunately, the knitting machine trade didn't work out. It appears the machine is just not in good enough working order to qualify as a viable trade. This is no fault of the trader who generously gave it up in good faith, thinking that it worked. SO, we are back to trading the child's approx. size 6 handknit sweater in Northampton Bulky. It is finished all but the collar and the extra yarn is included.
Anyone wish to trade?
Thanks to everyone who donated to the podcast! Your generosity is so appreciated!
And thank you to ALL our listeners! We love you!
