On the needles: (00:25)

A one-minute Gigi health update. Erin is working on the Tangled Yoke cardigan out of Colinette Jitterbug (in green). Jasmin is working on the Serpentine Mitts (by Miriam Felton) in the Claudia's Handpaint (color: Rubies Playing). Erin has some holiday knitting on the horizon, and is knitting baby socks for the 52 pair plunge.

Jasmin has unearthed her Carli (from the first Knit(more)-a-long, which is knit it Malabrigo Little Lovely. Jasmin will be knitting another sweater for Boo (the Tweedy Pie jacket from Monkeysuits), and found the perfect vintage rhinestone buttons for it.

Jasmin does her Rhinebeck recap, and reccommends listening to Jackie and Meghan's recaps. You can watch the videos here (caution, light language), and see Jackie and Meghan's flickr streams.

The sock Knit(more)-a-long starts today! Gigi is knitting the Mesmer Sock out of Abstract Fiber's Supersock in "Bonfire", Jasmin is knitting the Uptown Girl Sock out of Lisa Souza's Superwash BFL in "Fuschia".

When Knitting Attacks: (54:05)

Erin's Tangled Yoke hits a snag. Jasmin's Serpentine mitts start with a roomy thumb gusset. Sock gnomes have absconded with some of Erin's baby socks.

Straw into Gold (1:02:00)

Jasmin and Erin get a box of fleeces back from Shari!


  1. Oh, my gosh, Jasmin! The part about the ice on the windshield is cracking me up! Glad you got familiar with the "deicer" (in these parts known as a windshield scraper).

    You should come to Michigan! There are times when I've actually had to use the scraper to chisel ice off my windshield.

    Glad you had a good time at Rhinebeck.

  2. Hi Jasmin. I can't find the link for the girl you did today's show with. You mentioned she has her own podcast. Also I loved hearing about Rhinebeck. I listened to Meghan's story of Rhinebeck and it was neat to hear 2 perspectives on the event. Both of you had so much fun and it was fun to listen to all the stuff you did!

  3. It was great hanging with you and your posse in the fleece sale line at Rhinebeck! I finally listened to your Rhinebeck episode this weekend. And I just so happened to be listening to the whole bit about Stew Leonard's....while heading to and leaving the Danbury Stew Leonard's! There might have been some apple cider donut samples in between. It's one of my local grocery stores. It was a bit surreal to say the least.

    Once home, I got the call from Zeillinger's saying my Rhinebeck fleece was ready to be shipped out. Here's hoping you've received the same call!
