SPOILER ALERT! Spoilers for Rogue One from 1:00:10 to 1:03:56! Spoilers for Season 4 of Sherlock from 1:11:20 to 1:19:14!
Political talk from 00:02:55 to 00:23:48, in case you really don’t want to hear it for whatever reason. You’ve been forewarned. Also since we recorded, things have not entirely improved so the call to action is still valid for many reasons!
ETA: This is kind of a test as we’ve had to find a workaround for hosting this file for the moment. Our hosting is still there, it just won’t accept files for unknown reasons. Send Admin Monkey some hugs!
Adventures in Knitting! Maggie has finished Lilli Pilli and it has been sent to its recipient! Maggie made a Pussyhat out of her own handspun! Her Celtic Myths shawl has had…problems, which Karen is encouraging her to ignore in favour of finishing it. She’s also been working on a Jasmine Scarf, again out of her handspun, which has been going much better, as well as some Chevronnes gloves for the Admin Monkey. In addition to all that she’s also planning a Rumplestiltskin wrap for a wedding gift, which is out of DK< so it’s…slightly less crazy than it seems? Maybe? And she’s getting more parts for her loom, so weaving is ever closer!
Meanwhile Karen has been doing bugger all because she’s been sick for the last month. Maybe a little work on the Lilli Pilli stripes, though she’s also running out of yarn for one of the stripe colours, but gives no fucks. Since feeling a little better she’s been working on the Mystic Star shawl, where she found the last skein looks like it has a different dye lot, but again, gives no fucks. Diagonella socks have mostly been in hibernation because big surprise, projects for public transit don’t get as much done when you’re not going to work as much. This lack of progress on anything hasn’t stopped her from lusting over some yarn from Topsy Farms, however, which is begging to be made into a sweater.
Also, we have started a new stashdown thread for 2017! Karen has goals, many of which are the same goals from last year because she…kinda didn’t complete last year’s goals. Whoops.
Geek Squee! A San Jose city councillor was sworn in holding a Captain America shield! <3 <3 We’ve also been watching a bunch of stuff, like Rogue One, Hidden Figures, Sherlock, and the Magicians!
Cravings, Covets and Crushes! Karen is super tempted to do the Heroes of Yarnia Knitting RPG scarf, which is completely mental but SO COOL (there’s also an MKAL blanket starting soon!). Karen is also thankful that she doesn’t really crochet, because the Schjeepes Hygge shawl CAL looks amazing but also definitely one of those “go big or go home” projects. We also love the Peace de Resistance mittens, and some of the proceeds are going to charity, so check them out!
Also, we have CONTEST WINNERS! :D
