Vermin - Episode 35

Listen here.

KAL Announcement! The Westknits KAL has been extended to April 15th. To enter the drawing for an autographed copy of Westknits Book Two, please post a photo of your finished project either on the ravelry thread, or link to it in a comment on the show notes. There is still enough time to start and finish a small project.

Latte: Abby's still knitting Transatlantic; she's loving Hawthorne and has cast on Marilinda socks (see above) from her handspun sock yarn. Ben is making another dice bag with a Greek Key pattern. He might felt it.

Grande: Ben finished his Flagstone. It was such fun to knit; complex and simple all at the same time. Abby finished the Surprise Socks.

Brewing: Ben is considering which Westknits project to tackle next. Abby still hasn't settled on a lace shawl, but it's coming!

Chai: Abby had various New York moments this week: President Obama tied up traffic in the neighborhood, it snowed on April Fool's day, but flowers are in bloom. Abby is going to have some pieces in an art show; details to follow. And yes, the mice are back in the apartment. 

Caffeinated: Abby is being audited by the IRS. Enough said.

Tip Jar: Ben warns that using pencil to draft a pattern that you want to keep has its risks. Abby used her computer screen to magnify a sock detail and thus fix an error.

  1. I really enjoy your podcasts - even when you don't synchronize your tagline. :) It's cute.
    Just wanted to say that it's a good thing that you don't have cats, because the kitties would present you with a 'gift.' :) You can buy a humane trap and set the little critter free at the Central Park Zoo. :) We did that and we have 4 cats (but they catch lizards - we live in the desert). I'm also allergic but one can build up an immunity. Really.
    Rock on, you two!
