16: The one with Rocky and without seam allowance

August 29, 2012

Find the new episode here!


We talk about this and that, thank all the new listeners – and returning.

Maria introduced Rocky the kitten.

Off, on and under the needles

On the needles:

Maria has only been knitting on the cardigan for Carla (not much knitting)

The Color Affection shawl has been frogged. The new will be cast on next week-end as Maria is participating in the Imake knitalong.

Maria talked about releasing the Birgitte Basic Tee pattern and sewing t-shirts.

Maria has also been sewing some skirts from new pattern (coming soon).

We also mention the T-shirt Fitting posts on Maria’s blog.

Tini has been knitting a ton during the Ravellenic games. She finished the Orchid Thief Shawlette (by Ysolda Teague) and the pattern was suboptimal. The pattern is from Brave new knits. The yarn (fibrespates scruptious sock) was lovely though.

A bit work has also been done on the Arcadia Shawlette by Janel Laidman.

Currently the only thing, that gets knitted is the One never tires of ribbing by Susan Crawford out of Lamella from the Hamburger Wollfabrik.

Sewingwise Tini made project bags (box bags) using the pattern from the Machwerk website (German) and a little bag for the kids for Kindergarten.

On the Horizon

Maria is starting on her autumn wardrobe (skirt, trousers, tops) and needs to get going with the babystuff for the niece/nephew.

Tini wants to work on Ufos/WIPs 🙂

I’ve got a Notion

Tini got a ironing press via ebay small ads and loves it.

Maria really likes the Sewing Kit HD Iphone app – it’s great for keeping track of stash fabric, patterns and thread.

Something Danish/something German

We talk about Danish yarn: Holst garn

Life with  Twins and teenagers

The teenager stopped talking – only mumbles.

The twin has started tantrums
