A quick review:

Knit.Sock.Love,

(We both queued a lot of patterns from the book, and go into a brief summary of our opinions of it.  To view the patterns from the book on Ravelry, click here.  To go to the Cookie A group on Ravelry, click here.  There is also a new group on Ravelry for the Knit. Sock. Love. book, including lots of knitalongs, here.)

Our Ode To Ravelry:

Congratulations to Ravelry on achieving 1,000,000 members!!!  We fully expect knitters to take over the world at any time now.  Ravelry has changed us all, whether we’re active online or not… from introducing us to new friends, new designers, new yarns, and new techniques, to breaking us out of our “comfort zones” and challenging us to become better masters of our craft, we all owe a lot to Ravelry.  We talk about how we were both lonely new knitters, and Ravelry opened lots of doors for us in the knitting community and inspired us to branch out and become better knitters.  We also wouldn’t have met if it wasn’t for Ravelry!  What are your awesome Ravelry stories?  How has Ravelry inspired you?  Come tell us on our group on Ravelry here!

If I Was A Rich Girl:

Dana:

Little Gem II, Folding Spinning Stool, Plying Set, Wild Flyer

Brittany:

Lots of fiber sellers on Etsy: beesybee, Sheepish Creations, stitchesnrows, Springtree Road, Tyrannosaurus Knits

Some Praise for Malabrigo:

Brittany bought some Malabrigo Rios and got a nasty surprise- a very messy skein that was impossible to wind.  She wrote to Malabrigo and got some excellent customer service: they replaced the yarn and even sent her an extra skein of some test yarn.  We think they are a wonderful example of a company that cares about their product quality and their customers’ experiences while using their products.  Thank you, Tobias & Antonio!!

Upcoming Events:

We are going to be hosting a knitalong in January- Christmas Stockings!  We think it is a great idea because there’s no Christmas pressure hanging over our heads.  We’ll announce more details on episode 3, and hope you’ll consider joining us in the knitalong!  (P.S.  There will be prizes!!!)


Thank you for joining us for Episode 2, and we look forward to hearing from you!!!

Love,

Dana & Brittany
