Episode 17 - Too Hot to Handle

Wendy and Sheila try filming outdoors for a change, but it's too hot! The usual project chat, including the finished Mountain Ash Shawl and Catkin Shawlette. Wendy reveals her Rhinebeck sweater plans and both ladies show off some bags they love.

Rate Your Date:
Sheila has a long slow Waltz to rate.  She finished the Mountain Ash Shawl by Kate Gagnon Osborn in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK on US 6 / 4mm.  Loved it, it took about 2 1/2 months to knit it, mostly done at work with the higher temps outside.
Wendy  has finished her Catkin by Carina Spncer in Malabrigo Sock in Archangel and Botticelli colorways.  She loved, but will probably not knit it again.

This has happened to me before on another podcast but the link to blip doesn't work for me. It opens up a menu for me to decide what to do (and blip isn't one of the choices). On the other blog I went to blip myself and put in the podcast name. I've tried different combinations but I can't find your podcast on blip. What is it under? Thank you.

Wendy said...

It should work from this page now (after 4 days of working on it), but for future reference, you should be able to find us on Blip as knit1hearttoo.

Wendy, I have a Ladybug they are a little different from the Sidekick. The bug can be double drive, scotch, or Irish tension like the matchless. The Sidekick is only Scotch tension but can fold. The good thing about them is that all the parts interchange so if you get one and later decide you want one of the others all the extras you get will work. Hope to get a Matchless and still have my bug for my dd to use

Yay it worked. I liked your podcast being outside, although I can just imagine how hot you both felt doing so. Sheila your shawl is absolutely gorgeous. Wendy I really liked your one too with the little buttons. Those needle holders look great too that you have with each of your beautiful bags. I have to agree that I couldnt find your podcast on blip the other day either which was annoying but I am glad it worked today!

Wendy said...

tgknits - thanks for the info. My friend has a ladybug, which I will be trying out over the next couple of weeks. Can't wait!

And sue - Blip was a nightmare this week, but hopefully I worked things out so I won't have any problems again!

You two are great no matter where you are so no appologies for being outside, I loved it! I'm almost caught up now and am having fun watching you two. Wendy, I love your catkin, I have the pattern but I'm waiting to go to Wollmeise in 3 weeks to get some yarn for it. hugs from Berlin!!
Oh I have to laugh-my word verification is bedhors!! sorry, it cracked me up. :-)

Sheila said...

Kimberly, I am so jealous that you get to go to the store. I hope you have fun.

The word verification is so funny, makes no sense but gives you a giggle.
