Episode 16 - The One with the Firecrackers

What’s on the needles -  

I have a HO for the 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.

I’m increasing for the gusset for the 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.

I’m half way done with the 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.

What’s on the Nails –  I showed you lots of nail colors! First: Pride nails with Julep Jackie, Joy, Leila, and Kaylen with Barielle Decadence and OPI Fresh Frog of Bel Air.

Second: China Glaze Riveting (part of the Hunger Games/Capitol Colors collection).

Third: Captain America/Fourth of July with Julep Tracy, Jackie, and Firecracker with OPI Alpine Snow.
I started using gel as my base to add strength: Gelish Vitagel Rejuvenating Nail Strengthener and IBD Just Gel Polish Top Coat (think SV for gels)

Book Talk–  Americana : Book #1 – Johnny Tremaine by Esther Forbes -

No Wishlist because I had a huge Parade of Guilty Pleasures – I showed my Julep box (I upgraded to the whole collection)

I also got some more SensatioNail colors to add more colors to my gel polish collection.

As shown, I also got the China Glaze Hunger Games/Capitol Colors collection: (This used to be part of Prime, but not anymore…)

I also purchased China Glaze Dorothy Who? which is part of their Wizard of Ohhh Azzzz Returns collection

I also got some Sephora by OPI.

Etc etc etc – I blabber about Bart and religion and random of other stuff.
