Episode 35: Warm Weather Quilting

Life Stuff

  • WTF Weather – It’s been so warm and it makes me sad. February is supposed to be bitter cold and below 0, but it reached 70F (21.1C) the other day D:
  • New craft room? – 95% sure that my craft stuff will be moving down stairs and we’ve started redoing the family room with some painting. Parents are thinking about turning this corner into a library nook, which should be nice. Didn’t stop me from reorganizing my corner again anyway.
  • Blanket MAL 2017 – Started Jan 1st! There is a chatter/encouragement thread up in the Ravelry group and I’m planning on pulling prizes once a quarter for this MAL. #2017BlanketMAL

Knitting Stuff


  • Re-FO – R2-D2 Socks – Must Stash Yarns “R2-D2” – US 0/2.0 mm circulars – Susan B Anderson’s heel from the Smooth Operator Socks pattern
  • Rainbow Dangling Conversations Shawl – pattern by Mindy Ross – US 2/ 2.75 mm needles – Case of the Silent Six gradient carded roving from Bitsy Knits – 50% SW Merino, 30% Silk, 20% Seacell


Crochet Stuff


  • Crochet Basket (improvised pattern) – Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Super Bulky (6 skeins) – US U/25 mm hook


Fiber Stuff

  • Brown Cormo sweater spin on Ashford Kiwi 2 – Finished first 3ply skein

Sewing Stuff

  • Hawkeye Quilt – reducing the size to a wall hanging, disassembled the basted squares, 1 quilted square not going into the wall hanging will have binding added and be used as a mug rug or table decoration
  • Halloween Quilt – Took it out of the hoop and did the ditch quilting. Did detail quilting on one square.

Other Stuff

  • Stuff I’m Watching – Clone Wars, A Series of Unfortunate Events (Netflix), Long Way Round, Long Way Down
  • Stuff I’m Reading
    • Rereading Ashlesha by Jer Keene – book 1 of the Awaken the Stars series – Amazon and Altered Nature Press alterednaturepress.org
    • Star Wars: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden (audio) narr by Marc Thompson
    • Galaxy of Fear: Nightmare Machine by John Whitman
  • Fanfic Recommendation
    • Swung by Serafim by Flamethrower        
    • “In 1993, Gilderoy Lockhart points a stolen wand at Harry Potter and Ron Weasley with the intent to Obliviate them.  The wand doesn’t backfire. Gilderoy’s “”discovery”” of the Chamber of Secrets is a short-term success. Other consequences are not short-term at all.”
    • AU where HP loses his capacity for bullshit and flamethrower rounds out Snape as an interesting and actually redeemable character. Lots of calling adults out on their inability to adequately care for and guide children.
