Episode 27 - Germ Free Zone

Welcome back! Thanks for joining us for Episode 27.

In this episode, Dana and Kristi are finally free of the viral plagues that have been giving them grief. We're catching up on Life, WIPs, FOs, and Stash Enhancements. 

Dana has been enjoying a new video podcast, Are You Knitworthy?, which is hosted by Danni and Monica (who Dana mistakenly calls "Martha" because she's awful with names *derp*). Be sure to check them out! And as mentioned in stash enhancement, Monica sells lovely hand dyed yarn which you can find at Yarn Experiments

What We're Working On (a.k.a. WIPs):

What We've Finished (a.k.a. FOs):

  • Dana
    • Knitting
      • Campside
        Pattern: Campside by Alicia Plummer
        Yarn: Alicia Goes Round Bevy of Swans DK in "Pompey"
  • Kristi
    • Knitting

    • Sewing

    • Dying

      • Kristi dyed 6 skeins of yarn with food safe cake dyes and YouTube tutorials for guidance. Four skeins are for her friend Nate based on Golden Girls photos. It's a super tardy Christmas gift. She also dyed a skein of light blue aran weight mystery yarn to be used on a squishy cabled hat for herself. And, because she accidentally soaked the wrong skein, another mystery skein was dyed. It was supposed to be red but the color broke in a very appealing way. Also included is a picture of a simple set of stitch markers made for Kristi's swap partner.

What We Couldn't Resist (a.k.a. Stash Enhancement):

  • Dana picked up the Sassy Cats I mini skein set from Ancient Arts Yarns to go with her Sassy Cats II set. There was a trunk show at Charlotte Yarn featuring the Greenville, SC dyer Monica who is behind Yarn Experiments. Dana picked up several goodies, including two skeins of Monkey Sock base in "Tortuga", another skein in "Quintana Roo", and a surprise for Kristi. She also snagged a skein of Charlotte Yarn's in-house yarn, Ava Lu, on the Get Your Stripe On base in "Leaping Lizards" which she's had her eye on for a bit. 
  • Kristi finally found a wrist ruler to fit her child sized wrist at Colorful Yarns. It's made by I Love Handles.
