    In My Travels
    I traveled to Orlando with my friend Megg who was going there for a conference. We stayed at the Gaylord Palms, visited Epcot one evening and had a great time.
    I had a couple interesting conversations with people at the pool. One lady was fascinated by my knitting and we had a rather awkward chat when I told her I was knitting a chicken.

    Same as It Ever Was Hat
    Pattern: Same as It Ever Was by Sarah Jordan ($6 knitting pattern available on Ravelry)
    Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in the Beatnik colorway
    Needles: US 2 (2.75 mm)
    Ravelry Project Page
     
    Nimbus Vest
    Pattern: Nimbus by Berrocco Design Team (free knitting pattern)
    Yarn: Worsted Weight 100% Wool (from Rhinebeck 2022) held double
    Needles:  US 10 (6.0mm)
    Ravelry Project Page
    Notes: I added length to the body before the underarms. I worked 13 inches before the sleeves (4 inches longer than called for)
    Goofed up working on front left.  Didn't read the instructions well and I bound off stitches for the underarm on the RS of the piece instead of the WS. Thankfully the rows were very short after that, so ripped back and was able to fix it in less than an hour.
    Seaming- I seamed the shoulders and then the sides before setting in the sleeve. I should have done it in this order 1) shoulders 2) sleeves, 3) sides. This post from Amy Herzog was helpful re: Setting in Sleeves.
    Collar- added a row of SC around the collar to make it look a little neater.
    Finished Project 700g.

    Yarn: Big Twist Value Solids in Sky Blue, Teal, Mint, Cyan, Jade Green and Aqua
    Hook: I (5.5 mm)
    Ravelry Project Page
    Progress: Finished all 5 color-block sections. I am using the 6th color for the border because the blanket was already long enough with 5 colors. The pattern has 2 border options, a scalloped edge & a modified picot edge. The latter is what I was planning but I think instead I'll use a bobble edging.
    I first used this border on a Cozy Clusters Blanket  (Ravelry project page here). I learned about this edge technique on this website.
     
    Same as It Ever Was Hat #2

    I Love You More Socks
    Yarn: Malabrigo Arroyo in the Azules colorway (medium denim blue)
    Needles: US 3(3.25 mm)
    Pattern: OMG Heel Socks by Megan Williams ($5 knitting pattern available on Ravelry )
    Ravelry Project Page
    For these DK socks, I cast on 48 sts and followed the OMG heel instructions for that stitch count. I worked more ruonds of ribbing than I usually do and used that as the whole leg of the sock, then worked heel, and foot as usual.  I included some colorwork in a neon coral DK yarn to say " I love" on the left sock and "you more" on the right sock. When squished up it looks like it says I Love You Mom which is also perfect!

    Mom, Millie and I met up with our friend Ryan at the Farm Fiber Days Event at Wayland Farmers Market at Russells Garden Center.

Like spending time with a true friend!

I’ve been a listener to Jen for many, many years now and I’m even more excited now than ever to see another episode drop. Her podcast has evolved with time and so has she. Jen is sensitive to the ways of the world and creates a welcoming community. I love hearing how she channels her creativity and shares it with listeners and loved ones.

Melissa bella fio ,

Love it 💕

Jen’s voice is so soothing and she’s so down to earth!

Woke

So tired of every podcast being woke. When I first start a podcast and here someone stating their “ pronouns” I immediately don’t want to listen. There are 2 genders people and you are born with that gender!
