96 Knitting Without a Net

Java Socks: Complete!

Listen here.
Brewing: Abby finished the Java socks! She is working on Provence, socks by Janel Laidman from the Knitterati sock club.
Ben is designing an Excel tool for a Beginning Knitter's Watch Cap.
Abby mentions the "Belly Button Start" for beginning knitting a circular project.
Abby is excited about the Null Hypothesis Scarf, which is double knit; a technique she's never tried. The pattern is from Needles and Artifice a book of steam-punk type patterns.
Our google+ Hangout was really fun! We will do it again. During the hangout, Ben performed "Sweater Surgery" on Erik, a sweater he made long before the podcast even started. Ben steeked for the first time, using Eunny Jang's crochet steeking tutorial. Ben's no longer afraid of the steek. He's now thinking of making Jared Flood's Rockaway Cardigan from Brooklyn Tweed.
Sofa: Ben talks about new music, The Heist by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Warning: explicit language on this album.
Abby has been listening to and enjoying the Pop Culture Happy Hour  podcast. From that podcast, she discovered the the Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast. Ben suggested that the A/V Club's Gateways to Geekery is a good place to find jumping in points for "cultish" TV shows and the like.
