Episode 40 – Creative Surge

Filmed on Saturday, August 5, 2017

Tea Time – totally forgot it this time, but was just drinking water. 🙂

Welcome to all new and returning viewers! And a shout out to those who introduced themselves in the Introductions thread

Works in Progress (WIPs)

Cross Stitch Corner

No work this week on my Forest by Satsuma Street. BUT soon! Am going to take part in an impromptu, casual stitch along in the Cross Stitch Corner thread here in the group of the Alpine pattern by Satsuma Street

What I’m Jonesin’ For

  • I’m wanting/needing a solid color, everyday shawl or cowl for work – either black or light grey/cream. Am thinking the Void shawl.
  • I’d like to make a worsted weight, easy to make sweater. The Boxy and Soirée are lovely, but too….boxy. Ha! I received a lot of suggestions for the Veronika Cardigan by Shannon Cook. Tracie of the Grocery Girls Podcast just made that! Love it – but still looking for a pullover. Karleen suggested I see spring by Joji – so that is in the running. A few Alicia Plummer patterns were suggested, and I found In Stillness, which I LOVE, but would need to adjust pattern for bust size. I also like Edgartown Light, which is DK weight and am not sure made in the round. I loved the idea of a cropped sweater, but am looking for something more casual right now. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE IDEAS!
