Just When You Think You're Done - Episode 30

Listen here.

Latte: Ben is making a colorwork drawstring bag for gaming dice. He used Judy's Magic Cast On to start it. Abby is finishing Stricken, and continuing to work on the Derry Raglan, Distelfink socks, and Cassidy. She also cast on Bandwidth.

Grande: Ben finished the Norwegian Star Earflap Hat, and is almost done with Kitten Mittens.

Brewing: Ben wants to compile a small library of original stranded knitting patterns. Abby is thinking about summer knitting. She wants to spin, knit lace shawls and socks.

Bite: What is your next knitting challenge? Can we help? We're both wanting to take on intarsia. Ben is challenged by the "mohawk dragon hat" and Abby wants to knit the Geek Chic Argyle Vest.

Chai: Ben comes on strong at his local yarn shop.

Cup of Joe to Go: Abby celebrated her birthday with the Columbia Knitters who are both charming and skilled. And there was ice cream cake! Karoknits's Undergrowth hat was so pretty, Abby had to add it to her queue.

Barista's Special: We get our first knitalong underway with a Westknits KAL. Knit any pattern by Stephen West between now and the end of March. There will be prizes, including two copies of Westknits Book 2 donated by none other than Stephen West himself. Sign up on the ravelry board, or email us.

Bitter Cup: Abby learned, again, the perils of the "center pull ball/cake" and wasted more than two hours dealing with "yarn barf". Ben solved his girlfriend's yarn problem by cannibalizing a scarf.
