Prairie Girls Knit & Spin


May your drafting be consistent, and your gauge never lie!

Sep 26, 2015

In this episode, the girls chat about multi-colored shawls. Susie tries to get everyone drunk, and Danie says 'Current Projects' like a pro.

Miscellaneous things mentioned include Susie's Bob & Weave sock pattern release (use code '3RDBDAY' to get 33% off through October 9, 2015), Danie's first and second Mama Vertebraes, and way too many multi-colored shawl patterns to link to. Please check out Susie's queue and Danie's favorites for patterns mentioned.

Events

One Twisted Tree will be at the Nebraska Knit & Crochet Guild's Fall Retreat's market at Mahoney State Park on Sunday, September 27, 2015.

Contest

To win a copy of the gorgeous Agatha Socks pattern by  the fantastic Claire of the NH Knits podcast, post in the thread on the Ravelry group.

Finished Projects

Susie finished her Third Birthday Socks and they are a BIG hit! She also started and finished the pattern sample for her new shawl design the Hellebore Shawl.

Danie finished her Sugared Violets after a couple sons of a stitch. They were worth it though, because the finished shawl is stunning.

Current Projects

Susie is banging out her second Bang Whiz sock, and has reached the project's tipping point. She also worked on her second Bob & Weave sock. She finished the body on her Peekaboo sweater and picked up the stitches for the first sleeve. It's a little slow going because she's magic-looping, and it's not her favorite.

Danie worked a bit on her Featherweight Cardigan, and one her Stained Glass Sock Blanket. She also cast on Corrugated Box by von Hinterm Stein with One Twisted Tree Lavish in Shrewd Lady Mary.

New to Me

Susie has been enjoying a new-to-her audio podcast called The Sweet Georgia Show, hosted by Felicia Lo of Sweet Georgia Yarns. 

Enhance the Stash

Danie celebrated her birthday by treating herself to a Single Shot bag from Kitchen Counter Crafter, an Oh! Loops fingering-weight skein in Mermaid's Song, and a Lo-Lo bar.
