Most productive crafter goes to Vivian this time around. Her Sock Arms sweater is finally off the needles, plus she's already started her next fingering weight sweater! Alyson has more excuses than projects, but one of her FOs is in celebration of her first pattern on Ravelry being available to download as a PDF. Swish!… Continue reading Episode 32: Literal Ankle Warmers
Together again! Together again! We took a short break in our adventures, galavanting around Scotland to record a special video episode... because we're together again! All this vacationing means Vivian has had loads of time to knit knit knit, but her Sock Arms sweater is still on the needles! Alyson, meanwhile has lots of new… Continue reading Episode 31: Morag, Meet Morag
We'll call this one a "curated" episode. It's short, but sweet, and full of accomplishments. Alyson has successfully tried her hand at intarsia crochet, with the not so insubstantial help from Fay's new Stiallach Bag Collection pattern. And both Vivian and Alyson have exciting FOs! Alyson's has been long in the works, while Vivian's is… Continue reading Episode 30: Cartastic!
If we know anything, it is that Vivian will make multiple versions of patterns she likes. Also our cats love a cameo. Vivian has finished her second pair of Fiddlehead Mittens (featuring a Sushi cat cameo). And she's working on her Wool and the Gang socks which are cool, but not going quite to plan.… Continue reading Episode 29: Pure Sass, Baby!
Slow but steady wins the race (maybe). Both Vivian and Alyson are taking that philosophy to heart, each with small projects underway for the KALCAL: hot water bottle cover for Alyson and dish towel for Vivian. In other news, Alyson is grumbling about both her tank top and her sweater, but don't worry she still… Continue reading Episode 28: The One Where We Forget Words
We have a great episode here. Alyson is making good progress on her Pleated Cardigan and Vivian finished her Bubbly Sweater. Yay for handmade sweaters! The KALCAL is just around the corner and we've released this year's new points system, including bonus points for complexity. The mailbag segment being officially kicked off by a lovely… Continue reading Episode 27: Cat Cameo
Hurrah! It's KALCAL season! We had so much fun last year that we've decided to make the KALCAL an annual event. If you participated last year, you know the drill, although we've made some tweaks to some of the rules. So read on for all the rules and info! What is a KALCAL? As in… Continue reading KALCAL 2018
The biggest news of the day is that the KALCAL will be happening again this summer! There will be slightly different rules, but the idea is the same. Will the knitters or the crocheters get more done?? Things will kick off on June 15th, so make sure to check out the Revelry group for more… Continue reading Episode 26: I’m Not Good at Counting
We haven't gotten quite as much knitting and crocheting as we would have liked. Vivian has been hanging about at home with 2 of 4 daughters and Alyson's has been ignoring everything except her current read, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay by Elena Ferrante. But we're revisiting lots of projects you might already… Continue reading Episode 25: Camping in a Garbage Dump
Things to giggle about in this episode: Minions, husbands in craft stores, and sperm. As @lisa_raspberrycrochet pointed out, a common project theme this week is short rows. Vivian is having fun with short rows and Alyson is despairing over short rows. Expect many more short row hats in Vivian's future because she bought Woolly Wormhead's Elemental… Continue reading Episode 24: Wing, Wang, Wung
