105 - Kerfluey, Kattywumpus and Awry

Listen here.

Latte: Abby has been working on Brenda Petipa's Tribute Socks and also Miriam Felton's Gable Mitts from the Twist and Knit collection.

Bitter Cup: Brickletown Mitts went very badly, and somehow Odelia's sleeves had the wrong number of stitches. (Sigh.) Frogged the mitts, reuniting the sleeves. Also, Abby's Bernina had apparently been dropped somewhere between New York and California and has required something more than just a little TLC to get working properly again. 

Brewing: Abby learns -- again -- that she is NOT a project knitter! Abby also confesses that she was wrong - you CAN have too many projects on your needles. 

Sofa: Abby speaks of the merits of coming "late to the game" and recounts the many things she missed the first time around, including: Star Trek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Homeland, The Artist and the Mary Russell novels of Laurie R. King. Claire Danes is wonderful, and if you haven't seen My So Called Life or Temple Grandin, they are highly recommended. The "hero/heroine who is always right but never believed" is a theme in both Homeland  as well as in Psych Abby also talks about one of her very favorite shows, Bunheads. Bunheads trivia: check out Kelly Bishop here!
