On the needles: (00:35)
Jasmin is working on the Unloved Andrew socks out of the Sanguine Gryphone Skinny Bugga. Jasmin has pulled her Garter Yoke Cardigan out of her UFO/PhD pile. Jasmin has also been working on her Aran Pocket Shawl. We make a family visit to Purlescence, and talk about attending the Maker Faire. We met Drew Emborsky, the Crochet Dude, and the nice folks from BurdaStyle. Jasmin asks if the listeners would be interested in a Sew-A-Long.
- June 4th: Spinning at the Retzlaff Winery
- June 11th: WWKIP Day. Location TBD.

We announce the Three Bites contest! Try something new, anything, and tell us about it! The contest closes Monday 6/27/2011. Jasmin tells a story about creme brûlée.
Mother Knows Best: (27:06)
We answer a question from our "What do you want to hear about?" thread regarding hot weather and socks.
When Knitting Attacks: (31:02)
Gigi has been systematically attacked by all of her knitting. Gigi overthinks her Taygete, knits the foot of a pair of Hobbit Socks too long, her Katje pinches, and the buttonhole thread gets all ratsnesty.
This week we review Knitting Plus by Lisa Shroyer. We both like it, mostly, but think it's purchased best with Big Girl Knits.
