Show is up on ITunes! Or you can check out the video on

What’s on the needles -  
I did a lot of work on the Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Basic Pie Shawl – Pattern from The Knitter’s Almanac. Yarn from Abstract Fiber Matisse (100% SW BFL) in their Seattle colorway. Size US 2 (2.75 mm) Hiya Hiya Sharp needles. Have added to it the spirit Moraie in Silkie Socks that Rock and will add a gray yarn from Ranch of the Oaks.

NO work for Traditional Gansey Socks – Pattern from Wendy Johnson’s Socks from the Toe Up. Yarn from Lisa Souza’s BFL Sock in The Shore colorway. Size US 1 ½ (2.5 mm) Addi Turbo needles.

NO work for Lace and Cable Socks – Another pattern from Wendy Johnson’s Socks from the Toe Up. Also done with yarn from Lisa Souza’s BFL Sock in Sky Drama colorway. Size US 1 (2.25 mm) Hiya Hiya Sharp needles.

Self-Striping!!!! – My Knitted Heart Vanilla Socks from Elizabeth Suarez ( (kind of…I may have played with it a little while watching Star Trek) with Friday Studios self-striping sock (not sure what base though...I think Monday). Size US 1 ½ (2.5 mm) Addi Turbo needles.

What’s on the Nails –  SinFul Colors Into the Blue and Hard Candy Black Tie Optional. I also put Sally Hansen’s gel polish Shall We Dance. So far the gel mani is handling really well.

Book Talk & Announcement of the podcast’s first KAL/PAL! Theme this week is Children’s Literature, which ties into my announcement of our first knit-a-long and paint-a-long! Knit anything based off children’s/young adult fiction (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Twilight, etc.) or/and paint your nails with the same theme. It’ll be great!

My favorite reads when I was young was Anne of Green Gables, Are You There God, This is Margaret, and The BFG. What was your’s?

My wishlist -  For the nails: Literary Lacquers -
For the yarn: Dye for wool -
