Episode 125: Run Off Together

Welcome to the Knitting Samurai and Her Guys Video Podcast!

Knitting Time:

Easy by Martina Behm.  I've wanted to knit this since January when I purchased the Done Roving Frolicking Feet in the Apple Picking Colorway. Using US size 3 - 3.25mm needles.  

5 skeins of yarn that wont make it into Tristan's blanket, so to use squares in my BRQ I need to knit projects with the rest of the skeins.  

Narnia Socks Using my go to sock recipe: US size 0 - 2.0mm needles. Wendy Johnson's Slip Stitch Heel Basic Sock. A 2x2 rib on top of that. Yarn is Opal Schafpate in color 8127.  Brick Red/Spruce Green/Rust color.

Knitting Time continued:
Swirl Hat by Mandie Harrington: 3 done and few more to come.  First was knit with Claudia Handpaints Fingering in Plumolicious (once upon a time this was my favorite yarn to work with).  Second one was knit with White Birch Fiber Arts 80/20 Merino Nylon Self-Striping in the Tan, Rested, and Ready colorway (another skein of yarn that wont make it into Tristan's Blanket).  3rd was knit with Into The Whirled Manchester Sock in the Sterrennacht colorway.  4th is knit with Into The Whirled Quijarro Sock in the Winds of Change colorway.  Using US size 2 -2.75mm and 3 -3.25mm needles.  Couple more in my future.  Maybe one with the Monkey stitch pattern.  Loved them for Tristan.

Linnie by Justyna Lorkowska with Into The Whirled Quijarro Sock in the Winds of Change colorway and MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino in the colorway Seaside.  Using US size 4s - 3.5mm needles.

Finished the 5th of Tristan's Dinner Napkins...more to come. Using Grandmother's Dishcloth Pattern using Lily Sugar and Cream Ombre's.

Tristan's BRQ! By Shelley Mackie & Larissa Brown Using US size 2s - 2.75mm needles. Using Opal Rainforest, Fibernymph Bounceand Leading Men Fiber Arts Show Stopper in Dipping Sauce is the final piece.  
19 completed squares but only 10 of them are for T's Blanket.

Let's Swap!
Partners have been assigned and packages should be received by May 30th.    We’ll plan on exchanging addresses via private messages and getting to know each other a little bit over here on the boards.  Packages should include either Option A or B along with a few other little extras but let’s agree to keep the cost of the goodies under $10 (not including yarn).  It may or may not be important to your swap partner to know the yarn brand/color/content of the yarns so please try and include it just to be safe.  If you don’t know that’s alright, but if you do, please include it.
