Get Geeky

Unfortunately, Sandy was unable to join this episode due to a very nasty sinus infection that left her voiceless.
But, in the first half of the show, EspaƱa and Jade talk about the panels & parties attended, programming at ConVolution, and their impressions.

Jade got to spend time with one of her favorite geeky & crafty celebs, Bonnie Burton (a writer for CNet on all things geek and craft) and listen to Brianna Wu talk about her upcoming projects.

Fiber Optics

Jade is solo'ing for all of fiber crafting for this episode.


  • Pattern: Louisa by Cocoknits
  • Yarn: Shibui - Linen, Cloud, and Pebble
  • Progress:She is currently stalled because she ran out of Shibui linen, because she needed to lengthen the sleeves. Unfortunately, the colorway has been discontinued, and she's scrambling to find more..

  • Project: Doctor Who Cowl.
  • Yarn: Cascade Superwash Sock
  • Notes: She's currently working on this as she can. It's an in-the-round stockinette cowl with no patterning, so she can take it anywhere without issue and not worry about having to put it down and forgetting where she is in the pattern.
