On A Runabout:
We vended a craft fair together at Jess’s school!

Errnaments KAL:
Lots of pattern downloads- Don’t forget to claim a spot on the KAL thread! So far we have raised $71 (from pattern sales & ornament sales) and $52.95 (from kits and single skeins). There are still several kits available, as well as whole skeins, plus the pattern is only $2! Tell your friends and join us!
Prizes: Two bags, three pattern downloads, handspun from Jess, skein of your choice of $30 or less from Dana’s shop.

Underway:
Dana: Antler Mittens for Madelyn, Scandi Snowflake Cozies
Jessica: Errnaments!, Baby Hat for a Coworker, Man Hat for Brett

Concluded:
Dana: Lush Cardigan, Radioactive Rainbow socks, Anders
Jessica: Sock, Bilbo Cardigan

Sew You Say:
Dana: a zillion mug rugs (from this pattern) and hot pads (made up), Snow Kitty dress for Madelyn from the Green Bee pattern Lily Dress (and I do NOT recommend them at all!), another Staple Dress for me out of herringbone tweed felt, got the quilt sandwiches made for my aunt and inlaws’ quilts, about to piece a table runner for a friend for Christmas
Jessica: recycled project bags out of sweatpants

Where The Wild Things Are:
Dana: Madelyn wouldn’t sit on Santa’s lap and had a total meltdown. Had a blast at Thanksgiving getting pushed around by her cousin Layla (6 months older) on a push toy.
Jessica: “learned to knit AND read” story about Molly.

Review: Double Or Nothing: Reversible Knitting For The Adventurous by Alisdair Post-Quinn ($17.95 eBook download on Ravelry OR $29.95 for eBook/print book combo/$30.95 signed copy on Alisdair’s website)
Dana: Hexworth, Twice As Sexy, Spring Willow
Jessica: Atyria II, Ranelva, Rustle of Leaves

Want to win a copy? Please answer the prompt from the episode in the Double or Nothing Giveaway thread on Ravelry! The winner will get a copy of the eBook. You have until midnight ET on 12/17 to enter, and we will announce the winner on our next episode! You must be in the group to win, one entry per person, blog comments don’t count, be sure you post in the right place, etc.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye:

  • Wired Cowl and Wired Mitts were released by Sarah Shira (PrairiePoppins on Ravelry/ @imaginelandscapes on Instagram) and they feature Unwind Yarn Company yarn! Want to win a set of these patterns? Please answer the prompt from the episode in the ImagineLandscapes Giveaway thread on Ravelry! You have until midnight ET 12/17 to enter, and we will announce the winner on our next episode!
  • 12 in 17: each month, use up a single skein in a project. The skein must be whole when you start, and you have to post a picture of the skein before starting. You must use at least 50g of a skein in order for the project to count. (ie. you can’t use up scraps for this, unless they’re just accents in a project where you’re using a whole skein. You can use contrast for heels/toes, whatever, but please don’t push this guys! Keep with the spirit of the thing!) The point is to use up all of the single skeins in your stash if you have them, but if they’re new yarn purchases that’s ok too. We aren’t going to do specific prompts, but some months we may have a promotion with certain designers for a deal on a pattern, or with yarnies for yarn, so you might want to check the group to see (and keep up with the podcast!). No WIPs allowed, and you must cast on and finish in the month. You can still choose to do this like 12 in 16 and knit socks every month if that’s your preference! Please PM us with questions and we will have a more comprehensive (and hopefully concise) rule list up soon.
  • We are taking sponsors and prize donations for 2017! Please email us at justonemorerowpodcast@gmail.com if you are interested.🙂

  • We have a poll in Ravelry group to help us decide what KALs to do next year- please participate if you will! And if you have an idea for a KAL, please post it in the thread! We will by no means be doing all of these ideas, but we’d like to make sure we are offering KALs that you guys are interested in!
  • We are taking sponsors and prize donations for 2017! Please email us at justonemorerowpodcast@gmail.com if you are interested.🙂
  • Into The Wool vendor signups will be from Nov 20- Dec 3. Information will be posted next week in the Ravelry group, and those who have asked for reminder emails are already in the queue to get one.  Vendors will be notified by Dec 6, and attendee plus vendor fees will be due from the chosen vendors by January 7.
  • Consider doing a RAP! (Random Act of Pattern) There is so much negativity going around right now, and Dana is trying to revive the practice of doing RAPs on Wednesdays. Be sure to listen to the episode for full details, but the gist is that you pick a person at random or from your Ravelry friends, and gift them a pattern from their wishlist with a kind note attached. It doesn’t cost a lot to put some goodwill and love out into the world.🙂 And if you gift Jess’s Errnaments pattern, the money also goes to charity! Win win!

Errnaments KAL and SAFF Travel Plans

Hey everybody! Just a “quickie” (in a manner of speaking, depending on your definition) today, talking about our SAFF travel plans for this weekend, letting Jess give a brief intro, and talking about our Errnaments KAL, which starts on 11/1! Thanks for listening, and be sure to stop by the Ravelry group!

We are going to SAFF on Saturday 10/29! We aren’t going to do an official meetup, but will be wandering around so if you see us, please say hi! We will have podcast buttons and we promise we don’t bite.😉

Vendors we’re excited about:
A Hundred Ravens
Alicia Goes Around
Appalachian Naturals Soap
Dusty’s Vintage Buttons
Gale’s Art
Green Mountain Spinnery
Heatherlane Farms
LYDIA Yarn
Pawley Studio
River’s Edge Fiber Arts
SewFlo
Shalimar
Unplanned Peacock
Jessica Stokes:
Getting to know you… pbjstokes on Rav and Insta.
Errnament KAL
The idea is to spread the love during this holiday season and knit with a purpose! All proceeds from the pattern go to Child Aid. In addition to the pattern, 15% of the proceeds from Dana’s mini kits and full-sized skeins of the Christmas colorways in the kit will also go to Child Aid. You can get entries for downloading the pattern, for knitting with Dana’s specially dyed minis (or full sized skeins of the colorways), and for donating to Child Aid. For every $10 you donate (screenshot and pm us a receipt) you will also get an entry. The idea is to knit one ornament for yourself and one for your friend. You can use any of the ornament patterns (heck, adapt them for yourself if you want). To help us out, after you’ve earned your first entry please post a FO post in the FO thread and edit it to update with new entries and pictures (yes we must see pictures of your ornaments!), totaling the amount of entries you’ve earned at the bottom of your post in bold. You can just post text that you donated to ChildAid if you choose to do so and don’t want to put the screenshot on Ravelry- you must email us though! All edits to your FO post must be completed by 12:00amET December 22- we cannot make exceptions since this ends so close to Christmas. We will draw for prizes on our episode following Christmas. If you want to donate to the prize giveaway, please PM Dana (danaofunwind) or Jessica (pbjstokes) on Ravelry.

Entries quick reference:

Purchasing the pattern: 1 entry
Knitting with Unwind’s mini kit or a full sized skein of the Christmas colorways: 1 entry (max of 2 entries)
Knitting two ornaments (one for you and one for a friend): 1 entry (max 15 entries, so a total of 30 ornaments)
Donating directly to Child Aid: 1 entry per $10 donated
Remember to tag #errnamentKAL on your instagram pictures!
Example of a FO post:
Pattern purchased: 1 entry
Ornaments knit: 8 for a total of 4 entries
pictures of ornaments here
Mini kit used from Unwind Yarn Company: 1 entry
Full sized skein used from Unwind Yarn Company: 1 entry
Donated $10 to ChildAid: 1 entry

Total Entries Earned: 8

Please note: The pattern will be up in advance of the KAL! Thanks for your patience!

  • UYC shop news: the shop has gone to mainly dye-to-order. What does this mean? It means you can order a single skein of that colorway you’ve been dying to try, on whatever base you want! There are no minimums. The site says 3-4 weeks to ship, but right now it’s only taking about a week or so. There are also a lot of ready-to-ship items available for immediate purchase if you don’t want to wait. You can see all of the repeatable colorways on the shop blog: unwindyarncompany.wordpress.com, linked alphabetically under the header. You can place your order for whatever colorway you want by selecting the base you want in the shop, then ordering it and filling out the custom order form that is linked in each listing. It’s very easy and you’ll get exactly what you want!
