On the Needles: (00:37)
Jasmin is now working on the sleeves of the Andrew Sweater from Knits Men Want. She has now buttons for the Garter Stitch Baby Kimono. She has also just cast on the Breezy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig that she is knitting out of her hand spun.
Gigi is also working on sleeves, these belonging to the Rocky Coast Cardigan. She is also knitting on the Sothia shawl.
We celebrated Thanksgiving at The Plumed Horse in Saratoga. We went to the Pajama Jammie Jam at Purlescence on Black Friday. Congratulations to Gregory, who just got married! Jasmin mentions Juanita, who sang some amazing jazz.

When Knitting Attacks:(23:15)
Gigi is having issues with her Katriel. Jasmin bought yarn, but doesn't know for which Hannah Fettig patterns.
We review Knit Noro: Accessories: 30 Colorful Little Knits.
Straw Into Gold:(29:51)
Jasmin dug in her fiber closet and found some oatmeal CVM, that she bought from Patti Sexton. She is enjoying the fiber tremendously and is spinning it on the miniSpinner. Gigi picked up some bobbins for her Julia , but didn't do any spinning.
And Sew On:(32:20)
Gigi sewed two nightgowns for herself, and from the fabric that was left over, she sewed a large baby sack gown and a onesie for SharkBean, and a sack gown in a preemie size.
