In this episode, there’s a lot of talk about Rhinebeck.
No really, we’re not kidding.
In Adventures in Knitting, Maggie did not buy anything at Rhinebeck, somehow, and has given up on the There and Back Again Story Scarf. Instead she’s working on the Sock Head Hat for her sister-in-law, has done some more spinning practice and on her Grimm scarf, and she’s finished a slouch hat for her brother. Karen, meanwhile, bought…maybe not a lot by Rhinebeck standards, but still bought quite a bit of stuff. Sadly, she did not finish the Saddleback Cardigan in time for Rhinebeck and it will languish unfinished for a while yet, as she’s too busy trying to finish the There and Back Again Story Scarf. She also went to the Avengers STATION exhibit in Times Square and OMG SAW COULSON’S SUIT as well as a bunch of other stuff but OMG COULSON.
And speaking of which, we can finally announce our team name for the Royal Winter Fair Sheep to Shawl competition: The Agents of SHEEP, and the inspiration for our shawl is “Out of the darkness, into the light”. Really, like any of you are surprised.
In Geek Squee, ALL THE MARVEL NEWS. Age of Ultron trailer leak, Cumberbatch possibly as Dr. Strange, announcement of Phase 3 and a partridge in a pear tree. We’ve also found a super cute and amazing recreation of the Ghostbusters trailer by four middle-school girls, Daniel Radcliffe was on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon rapping, and there’s a hilariously epic video for Rob Cantor’s “Shia LeBoeuf”. Seriously, you need to see this one. Oh, and Maggie’s seen the first episode of Constantine, and wants to see more.
In Cravings Covets and Crushes, we mentioned a lot of stuff in the Rhinebeck discussion, so we’re just swooning over the new material J.K. Rowling has released on Pottermore, especially her character profile of Dolores Umbridge.
Thanks to all the listeners and other great podcasters we met at Rhinebeck! This week we mentioned the Fiber Fangirls blog, and Jadee’s videocasts, Twisted Strands Podcast! (We’ll be mentioning more in future episodes. :D)
