Episode 117: How I'm Rolling

On My Needles (3:00)

While on vacation, I put a major dent in Dennis’ Cardigan. The pattern is “Ranger” by Jared Flood. Yarn is Malabrigo, Rios in "Coco". To motivate myself to keep knitting on it, I treated myself to a new pair of Chiaogoo Red Lace circular needles (US 8 / 5.0mm).

I also worked on a pair of plain vanilla socks, which I'm knitting on my Blitzed base in the "Outlander" colorway. I'm keeping it in my favoriteJessaLu Lighthouse & Lobster project bag!
KALs (8:50)
Me and Molly of A Homespun House Podcast are co-hosting a "Classic Must Knits KAL" running from August 1 — October 1. Sadly, I was disenchanted with my Featherweight cardigan and decided to frog it. Instead, I cast on a "Napoleon the Nervous Narwhal" by Rebecca Danger using my own hand-dyed yarn (a discontinued base) in "Dirty On Purpose".

Also scored a massive bag of Poly-Fill from Wal-Mart #WINNING and Safety Eyes from Etsy.

I also found button eyes…
