Just One More Craft:
Dana: working on a cat cross stitch by Red Gate Stitchery on Etsy, tutorial on framing a piece of cross stitch in a hoop
Brittany: does spring cleaning count? haha
Stash Stories: What’s something you always want in your yarn stash? (melkrist1)
Dana: I think I would always want a sweater quantity of DK, a few skeins of self-striping in colors I (and others I knit for) enjoy, and a few random skeins of indie dyed worsted to make hats. Those are things I would buy without a plan because I know I could find something to do with them.
Brittany: Self striping sock yarn! A few single skeins of worsted or DK (preferably both). They’re great for hats or cowls. The reverse of that question, I never want lace weight in my stash because I never knit with it!
* winner of the Two If By Hand contest: #6 StormCoast! Please contact Dana with your address!
* Christmas in July is starting July 1! Please see the top of either thread in the Ravelry group for rules. Prizes will be posted sometime this week. Brittany is starting with the Elf Hat, and Dana will start with an ornament.
* The Super Summer Knitogether vendor market is July 19 from 1-4pmCT at Scaritt-Bennett Center in Nashville, and we will be there (just as shoppers, Dana isn’t vending this year). There’s a link to pre-purchase your admission to the market on the website, and apparently the first 100 people who buy a ticket get a free gift when they get there.
