Welcome back! Thanks for joining us for Episode 22.
For this episode we're discussing planning and making sound decisions when crafting with a budget in mind. As usual, we'll also be catching up on our regular segments for WIPs, FOs, and Stash Enhancements, too.
Remember we're hosting a hat KAL to celebrate 1 year of Podcasting Fun! The KAL is running from 10/15/2017 to 11/30/2017. Rules and requirements are posted over in the Ravelry group. There is currently 1 prize up for grabs (but we might add more!). Greg Cohoon (aka KnittingDaddy) of the Unraveling Podcast has generously offered a copy of his new hat pattern Thundertwist as a prize for 1 lucky KAL participant. Thanks Greg!

What We're Working On (a.k.a. WIPs):
Star Night Socks
Yarn: Regia Design Line by Arne & Carlos in "3653 Star Night"
What We've Finished (a.k.a. FOs):
- A whole bunch of math problems :( (stupid actuarial exam!)
What We Couldn't Resist (a.k.a. Stash Enhancement):
- Kristi found a new-to-her LYS called Piney Creek Yarn. Everyone there was really nice and helpful. Kristi picked up a faux fur pompom and some Stunning yarn destined for Holiday Swaps from Knerd String, a Colorado dyer.
- Dana picked up a few goodies at SAFF (while sticking to her budget! shock! awe!), which included two skeins of Interlacements Lacey Merino, the Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For SAFF gradient "Nantahala", and the Miss Babs SAFF 2017 color way on Hot Shot fingering base. She also nabbed a ball of Lollipop Yarn's Quintessential Base in "Catawampus" at Black Mountain Yarn Shop.

- 11/16 - Pints & Purls Charlotte @ Free Range Brewery
