Episode 71: The Lily Show

Show Notes

On The Dance Card:

Loud & Proud Socks: Wendy is knitting these using Play At Life Sockie Maki in the Loud & Proud colorway, no particular pattern. She is using US 1.5/2.5mm needles.

Judy B by Kimberly Gintar ($5 on Rav). Wendy is knitting this using Into The Whirled handspun in a Polwarth/Silk base, Gwydir colorway.

Rate Your Date:

Secret Knitting: Wendy's secret knitting is finished!  Sadly, we have decided to change up the yarn colorway, so she will be reknitting the sample and asking for test knitters in the Test Knitting Thread once she tries out a couple of modifications on the second sample.

Whirlwind Romance:

Into The Whirled Rambouillet Top, Captain Tightpants colorway, 8oz 3-ply in three skeins. The last 8 oz of Tour de Fleece 2012!

Enchanted Knoll Farms Wool, bamboo, silk, sari silk, sparkle, 8oz on the bobbins so far. Will coordinate it with the Into The Whirled coordinates Cris sent me. Yay!

Future Dates:

No ideas yet!

Crushes and Heartbreaks:

Knee Status: Overdid on the weight machines because I didn’t notice that the weights were in kilos.

Speeding Ticket: Now I will have to go to court and fight it. :-(

Baubles & Bling

Nothing.
