71 Together Again

Abby continues to try spinning cotton!

Ben and Abby are together again in New York!
Ben reports finding his Java Socks, and he's working on them again.
Abby is still working on the Dahlia sweater, Shalder sweater and the Kleio shawl. 
Abby cast on the Lucky 13 Hat from Pretty in Punk. There have been a few bumps, but she's determined to work it out.
Ben is looking forward to starting the Herringbone Mittens when he finds his suitcase!
Abby continues to do battle with spinning cotton on her Schacht Sidekick.
Ben asks our listeners:  How do you pack knitting for a trip?
Abby keeps patterns on her Kindle or her iPad and can access documents on her computer using the GoodReader app.
Ben is excited about the massive strategy computer game Civilization V which is available on Steam.
Abby got a small wrist rest to combat "Starcraft blister" and recommends this!
Abby shared a tip she read in Spin Art by Jacey Boggs
Abby remembered that the construction for Vonica was quite unusual and a bit counter-intuitive.
Ben suggests that knitters carry a multi-tool or Swiss army knife or Leatherman.
We talk about the Nantucket Bagg which was originally designed as a tool bag/apron and is now marketed as a knitting bag.
