On The Needles:(0:31)
Gigi has finished knitting the Sister Joan Shawl, and is looking for new bonbon knitting. Jasmin is working on her Breezy Cardigan again, and enjoying it a lot. Gigi has finished knitting the Hobbit socks. Jasmin finished Andrew's Latte Houdini socks, and has started a new pair of socks for him.
Gigi had finished the knitting part of the Featherweight Cardigan and excavated a UFO: the Odelia from Cocoknits out of Silk and Wool from Tess Yarns. Jasmin is working on sleeve number 4 of Andrew's Baseball Jersey, and is thinking of steeking it. Gigi was planning to knit another shawl, mentioned Romi Hill Designs, and has excavated a former UFO: the Shawl Collared Cowl.

Jasmin is knitting socks out of the "Walk of Shame" colorway from Little Red Bicycle. 
Gigi is working on her Bundi cardigan, and has decided not to do it as magic loop, but rather on two needles. Genevieve is outgrowing her little sweaters, and Jasmin is getting ready to swatch Playful Stripes for her.

We will be attending
- Pacific International Quilt Festival: Oct 11-14, 2012
- Stitches West:  February 21-24, 2013

Mother Knows Best:(11:49)
We talk about expired clothing, dressing one's age and not dressing matronly. This discussion has been inspired by the book that Gigi is reading,40 Over 40: 40 Things Every Woman over 40 Needs to Know About Getting Dressed

Sew Painful:(16:36)
Gigi neglected to enter the date for her quilting class on her calendar, and subsequently missed the class.

This week we are purloining the cake from the Knit.Spin.Cake podcast, hosted by Aimee. Gigi reminisces about Kaffee und Kuchen in Germany. Jasmin references The New York Times Dessert Cookbook.

This week we review Knit, Swirl! by Sandra McIver

And Sew On:(31:21)
Gigi picked up a bolt of muslin to sew trial versions of sewn garments. We are thinking of sewing the vintage coat designed by Gretchen, Butterick Patterns B5824, from Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing. Gigi looked at the site for  Britex Fabrics.

For Halloween, Jasmin is planning to sew a mouse costume (Simplicity 2506) for Genevieve.
