Jasmin has finished the garter wrap cardigan (by churchmouse yarns) out of FabFunkyFibres in the “Spock” color way. It is blocked, labels are sewn in.
Jasmin made some progress on Rex's KitKat hat in the “Sparkle Pony” colorway by White Birch Fiber Arts.. She also wants to knit a hat for Andrew to wear to the Science march.
Gigi finished a Kit Kat (kitten?) preemie hat.She decided to make crochet flowers for the embellishment of last weeks preemie hats that were inspired by Quick Knits for Kids. Jasmin mentions Nicky Epstein's Knitted Flowers.
She is sad that the Anna sweater isn't getting worn.

This week for Mother Knows Best, we answer a question from the "What do you want to hear about?" thread, about a beginning sewing book. Gigi dug out her copy of Sewing Machine Fun For Kids. She also likes My First Sewing Machine Book by Winky Cherry. Jasmin also likes the Burda Style Sewing Handbook.
Gigi was working on the Three Color Cowl, and found counting to six to be a problem. She had to tink back repeatedly, because she was watching tv and the dresses on The Dressmaker were amazing. (We mistakenly called it the Seamstress, sorry.)
Jasmin is toying with the idea of knitting one of the sweaters for Elphie.
