|This is how garter stitch looks in reverse spun yarn.|
Abby is drinking Good Earth Decaf Tea.
Latte: We were testing Biscotte et Cie sock yarn. It is a nicely plied three-ply sock yarn, which is fun to knit with, but the color way was not to her liking so it is being frogged.
Copperline Mitts by Elizabeth Doherty from the Metalwork collection is a lovely fingerless mitt pattern, being knit from Zealana Rimu DK weight merino/possum yarn. The yarn was generously gifted to Abby by Adwila, a listener in New Zealand.
Grande: Many projects are finished! Hitchhiker from hand spun merino (from Crown Mountain Farms, who are no longer in business), Lintilla from Sheepspot Sustainable Merino Fingering yarn, Grace Socks out of Lilt Sock by Black Trillium Fiber Studio.
Also “refinished” is Bigger on the Inside, which is now blocked into a wearable shape.
Brewing: We want to make a Romi Hill shawl, specifically: Carson, but the yarn we want to use might not be enough, but we don’t know how to tell! This is frustrating.
Taste: Review of Magpies, Homebodies and Nomads by Cirilia Rose.
Stir: Finished! Three Feet of Sheep, spun into a two-ply fingering weight gradient rainbow-ish yarn. After purchasing a Russian supported spindle from KCL Woods, learning to use it has proven a bit of a challenge. Help!
Sofa: We recommend three books: Station Eleven by Emily S. John Mandel, Physics for Rock Stars: Making the Laws of the Universe Work for You by Christine McKinley, and The Alienist by Caleb Carr. We mention the podcast “Books on the Nightstand”.
