Part II: Geeky Crafting
Jade is working on:
- Hiker’s Waistcoat in the round
- Finished a pair of socks for her nephew
- long tail socking cap
- scarves on the knitting machine (still)
Sandy is working on:
- crocheted snowflakes, boiling starch and pinning it out.
A GREAT site for all things “snowflake”: http://crochet.tangleweeds.com/index.html
- repairing a commercial scarf for a friend. The yarn is metallic yarn (and unpleasant! Sandy, however, has a better description for them in the show)
Jade: Finally got back to spinning on Frank, and she has about 4 oz done.
Jade: Spent time with her SIL working on beads over the Thanksgiving Holidays
For those who listened to the ENTIRE show, you can learn more about THAT song on this website and buy their albums! You can get THAT song for absolutely free, but Jade highly recommends getting BOTH albums, esp. if you're a fan of THAT writer, or just like QUIRKY Holiday music.
