We would like to thank all those who watched our first episode and thank you for coming back.  Welcome to any new viewers.

Poking around on the needles

Kari:

Damask shawl by Kitman Figueroa, knit with Fleece Artist Merino 3/6.  This is knit on 4.0 mm (US 6) needles.

Color Affection by Veera Valimaki, knit with MadTosh/Tosh light in Parchment,  William Morris and Nebula colorway. This is knit on 4.0 mm (US 6) needles.  This shawl was complete last week but Kari made a mistake in the pattern and could not live with it.  Something I adopted from my close friend Selma, if you can live with it keep going and if you cannot, frog it.  I have used that line whenever I question myself about a pattern I am doing.

Falling Leaves by Kari on Araucania Ranco Multi (no colorway on tag).  This is knit on 2 circs 2.25 mm (US 1) needles.  These are being made for our close friend Sarah a.k.a. Soho30 on Ravelry

Sue:

Color Affection by Veera Valimaki, knit with Chocolate Truffle sock yarn dyed by our very own Amanda nightandday on Rav and Wayside Weeds & Wool on Etsy.  Araucania Ranco Multi and Cantrix Sock yarn.  This is knit on size 4.0 mm (US 6) needles.

Riverbed Socks by Teresa at Tgaildesigns, knit with ArtByAna Dreamin DK yarn which is on clearance on her shop.  This is knit on 2.75 mm (US 2) two circs at a time.

If you are a part of our group on Ravelry, you can download this pattern for free using 2Tangled for the Coupon Code.  It is available until August 31st and is a really great pattern.

Spinning:

Kari:

Continuing to spin Hanks in the Hood that she bought at Knit Picks.

Sue:

Last week I was using a spindle but this week I had my first try on a wheel and I think Kari has created a MONSTER.,…I am spinning Organic Merino and after only 15 minutes on the wheel I am hooked.

Kari has purchased a Bee and will be loaning me her wheel until I purchase my my own.

Other News and Events:

Stitches MidWest: T – 3 days to , and we are so very excited to be going up with Lynne a.k.a. tollbaby on Ravelry.  We are taking classes, going to go crazy over yarn and fiber and bags…and…and……squeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

We will record Episode 3 while in Chicago and may even have some bits from the convention itself.  We hope to do some sight seeing while we are there….but you know how yarn can distract…..

Twist Fibre Festival: August 24-26, 2012 where both Kari, Lynne and I will be taking a class with the Yarn Harlot.  There will be a lot of local talent out there so if you are free you should check it out.
