This week, well…it’s episode 69. There are a few things not to listen to around the kids/in-laws right off the bat, but we swear, we lay off the innuendo after the first couple minutes.
Meanwhile in knitting, a certain project of Maggie’s is sleeping on the couch, as it has thrown yet another monkey wrench into her knitting plans. This of course means that she’s been forced into the arms of on other projects, oh noes. Karen, meanwhile, has no pretensions to monogamous knitting and so she has the same few projects in rotation as she had before, as well as being tempted to trying a fling with some new ones.
In Geek Squee, the third Hobbit movie has been pushed back a few months to when it should have come out in the first place, a freaking amazing omg LEGO model of Hogwarts, someone has actually created a suit that gives you “Spidey sense”, a planned movie for Neil Gaiman’s upcoming book and news about a convention that one of our listeners mentioned. There are also digressions about how much we want the Muppet Show to come back, as well as a show Karen loved that *is* coming back.
In Cravings, Covets and Crushes, we’re keeping an eye on the contenders in Threadless’ Sock Challenge, hoping that the Spocks will win so we can get our hands on them, drooling over some seriously gorgeous yarn from Apple Tree Knits and a way for you get your Hogwarts letter, albeit a little late.
