Episode 6: First Cons

(Click to listen. Uses Flash)

Part I: Geeky Stuff

Administrative Stuff:

  • Thanks to the podcasts CraftLife & KnitKnit Cafe for running our promo recently
  • Thanks to everyone who left a review on iTunes. It really made our day.


Con Reports

The girls went off to first-time conventions, and had a blast at both. They'll be returning to those cons again in the future.
I played/checked out these games:

  1. Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple
  2. Faery's Tale Deluxe
  3. Mouse Guard RPG
  4. State of Flux LARP by Ace of Geeks


Part II: Crafty Section

Pointy Sticks & Crooked Hooks

Sweaters for Penguins!  (note: this organization already has enough sweaters due to the generous nature of knitters)
  • Sandy:
    • Apres Surf hoodie. Just finished the decreases for the armholes on the back. 5 inches of knitting plain in pattern coming up, whoop-de-doo. ;)
    • I am designing a sweater for afghans 4 Afghans: the current drive got me started on a youth sweater that I designed from the bottom up. I am drafting up the pattern for this piece and will publish it to the Afghans 4 Afghans Ravelry group and the GGC podcast blog.
    • afghans For Afghans main site. The current drive is asking for mainly sweaters, also vests, mittens, socks, hats, and blankets, in wool or animal fibers ONLY, due date January 2012.
    • Fans of afghans for Afghans Ravelry group (requires Ravelry login) 

  • Jade:
    • Everybody knows, from Knitty 2008 -- using Frank handspun from TDF 2011. She might need to spin up more of Frank.


Jade is still working on Gretta. She’s so soft. Like kitten or puppy down.

Make it Sew

The girls talk about some of their Galifrey One costuming from thrift stores.
