86 - Fleeced!

Podcasters! Clockwise from top left: Anatomical Erin, Kristine (Yarnings), Rachel (Knitcents), Karen (KnitWits), Abby, Susan (Knitajourney) Missing from photo: Sasha (Spin Doctor) 

Listen here.

First an apology: Show notes for episode 85 have gone missing. They will be posted as soon as they show up.

Latte: Abby continues to knit the Rocky Coast cardi and the Absinthe socks. The chart is confusing, but Abby is using GoodReader to keep track.
Ben is slogging on with the Java Socks. He is suffering from some knitting ennui. 

Question for listeners: Do you want a style and fashion segment? What should we call it?

Brewing: Ben wants to design and knit one hat a week for a while and circulate the hats in Olympia to see where they go. He plans to publish the patterns as well. 
Abby is trying to figure out what to do her my SPAKAL yarn in case she doesn't have enough yardage for Eadon. She noticed that people said more yarn is needed, this may have to do with the weight of the yarn. 

Bitter cup: Abby has the wrong clothes, wrong shoes, etc. Decision fatigue strikes again.

Take a bite: We answer a question about keeping both sides of a Stephen West shawl equally stretchy.

Chai: Lots of talk about Ben's Graduation and the Black Sheep Gathering

Also we've been spending lots of time in Olympia and have visited The Reef, Darby's Cafe, Burial Grounds, and Last Word Books.

Caffeinated: Why we love Mad Men.

Bite: How do you use your queue? Favorites?

Tour de Fleece June 30 through July 21. Please come join Team Sasquatch, set your goal, and start spinning!

Tip jar: use anything to change your nitpicks interchangeable. I used a twist tie, stripped of its paper.
