Episode 141: Does This Chair Make Me Look Too Maleficent???

Image
We're finally moving! Of course that will mean I'll have to take a wee break from podcasting and updating the shop, but fret not — I'll be back in a week or two.

In the meantime, I wanted to squeeze in a quickie episode before the moving madness begins.

UPDATES

This week I'm hailing from a new desk chair! It may make me look like Maleficent, or (as Dennis says) Doctor Evil, but the lumbar support is amaze-ballz! I got it from Staples, if you're interested.

ON THE NEEDLES

Mama Ruffles Shawl: Cascade 220 Fingering, "Sage"It's living in my new Octopus project bag from A Homespun House!Originally, I was going to use the Sage colorway to cast on a Bonny tank, but decided the color didn't suit me. Instead, I will be casting on the tank using Madelinetosh Prairie in "Grenadine" colorway.
Canopy Shawl: Wollmeise, "A Little Crazy"I made a few mistakes while video chatting with friends and had to rip back a few rows.  I'm keeping it in my Naughty Kitty project bag from A Homespun HouseCozy Memories Blanket: This week I knit in 3 new squares using mini skeins from Kemper and Molly. I'm keeping it in my Unicorn project bag from Love Sock Wool.

This past weekend, me and Dennis visited my step-grandparents. My step-grandmother gave me a beautiful red woven shawl she brought back from her vacation to Oaxaca, Mexico.

OFF THE NEEDLES


This week I have a HO - my Octopus Garden Socks, which are being knit toe-up, with a Fish Lips Kiss Heel, and picot cuff. I'm seriously geeking out over the bind-off.
