Made my mom a Hawthorne Threads Activity Pillow for her birthday out of some gorgeous Art Gallery fabrics. Got the new Elizabeth Hartman Awesome Ocean and Sea Urchin patterns from Massdrop, and picked up fabric to make the small version of the Awesome Ocean quilt and the Sea Urchin pillow from the local quilt shop yesterday. (if you haven’t checked out Massdrop, you should! I got the patterns for about 40% off retail!)
Jessica: Looking for quilting inspiration. Got any to share? Please leave a comment here on the blog or in the episode thread on Ravelry!

Where The Wild Things Are:
Dana: Took Madelyn to the beach for the first time and it was awesome. She had a ball and I really enjoyed reconnecting with my cousin!

Thank you for joining us for Episode 146 of Just One More Row, hosted by pbjstokes and danaofunwind! This episode is brought to you by tech editor Jen Riester.

If you are a new or established designer and are looking for a tech editor for your accessories, toys, shawls, cowls, or whatever else you have created I am happy to work with you to make the pattern the best it can be.  This includes checking for spelling and grammar errors, checking the math, and comparing written and charted instructions.  I can also assist in writing pattern descriptions.  Contact me to learn more and let’s talk! You can find out more by visiting my site https://jenknittingaround.com/knitting-services/.

Underway:
Dana: Scrappy Happy Summer Tank, Campside Cardi, Peacock Lake (for my swap partner for the Summer Shawl Swap on IG), Chris’s Beary Surprise Socks (still have some UFOs from last episode but these are what I’m working on actively right now. 🙂 )
Jessica: Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl, Self-Striping Socks, Barley Hat, (Porter really wants a Turtle, Turtle by Susan Claudino)

Concluded:
Dana: Entrechat (I’m a sponsor for Frogginette’s KAL!)
Jessica: Modified Molly Hat, Preemie Hats

Sew You Say:
Dana: 100 Acts Of Sewing: finished one of Shirt No 1 so far, and finished 5 of Skirt No 1 (with a in-seam pocket hack found here). Several more of each cut out- just have to find time to sew! Also I finished Chris’s quilt and got it sent off, and was able to gift it on Father’s Day like I hoped! Pics are on IG. I also finished my birthday quilt, and have done quite a bit of shop sewing. Project and notions bags galore!
Jessica: Chambray Dress from Joann’s (New Look 6245)

Where The Wild Things Are:
Dana: Madelyn’s watermelon-themed 2nd birthday party went off without a hitch! Perfect day!
Jessica: Porter is doing Robotics Camp at his school!

Makers Moment:
Dana: I’ve cut over half of my basil out to use, and it’s still enormous. I made watermelon salsa for Madelyn’s party and it was AMAZING. Also made pesto for the first time! Apparently I need to think of more things to use it in though!
Jess: Basil shrubs are doing well, blossom rot on the tomatoes, something’s eating the eggplants, but I’m growing watermelon in a bucket!

Contest:
Please answer the prompt in the episode in the contest thread on Ravelry. The winner will be selected via RNG out of all entries in the thread. (regular contest rules apply) You have until July 8 at noon ET to enter. The winner will get to pick their choice of skein from HanaMadeIt‘s shop!

Episode 145: Sweaters Make You Sweat

Thank you for joining us for Episode 145 of Just One More Row, hosted by pbjstokes and danaofunwind! This episode is brought to you by tech editor Jen Riester.

You can find out more by visiting my site https://jenknittingaround.com/knitting-services/.

Underway:
Dana: Adama, Campside Cardi, Paddle Mitts, FiberOptic FootNotes roving in Calypso (singles are done, just waiting to find time to ply!)
Jessica: Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl, Afterthought Everything Socks, Modified Molly Hat, sweater spin is a go! (made sample card & mini skein test, it’s going to be a 3ply dk!) (mentions the Le Scarabee Bleu sweater as a potential cast on, but it’s actually in DK, not fingering like we thought!)

Concluded:
Dana: Afterthought Everything Socks, Augustine Shawlette, Spun Right Round “Cornucopia” Nply, Twist Fiber Studios Falkland 2ply
Jessica: Worsted Boxy, BFL

Sew You Say:
Dana: Crafty Cats preorders are now available in the shop through June 10! Preorder ship date is on or before June 24, and you can buy the yarn separately this time! As far as sewing goes, I’ve made a lot of half circle skirts out of jersey and ponte lately, for both myself and Madelyn. It’s crunch time to get done with Chris’s Legendary quilt, and I’ve finished the trees and will cut sashing and all of the Sasquatch pieces tonight. Gotta get it mailed by Tuesday! Eep!
Jessica: Made 2 skirts and a shirt with no pattern for any of them! I based them off of things I already own.

Where The Wild Things Are:
Dana: Madelyn finished up this year at PDO! Starts a summer-only program on June 6, so until then I’m single parenting with no childcare. It’s a bit overwhelming. I made cosmetic bags for her teachers for end of year gifts and they were so happy!
Jessica: Porter remembered his teachers’ favorite flavors of M&Ms and brought them a present of them along with some succulents for an end of school gift!

Makers Moment:
Dana: started my herb container gardens with cool over-the-rail planters. My basil in particular is doing REALLY well- I need to make more recipes with basil so I can thin it out! Maybe some pesto?
Jess: My garden is doing really well! No produce yet, but my sunflowers are knee-high, and my black eyed susans and tomato plants are doing great!

Imagined Landscapes +1 Pop Collection Preview:
We’ve had the opportunity to get a little preview of Sarah Schira’s new +1 Pop Collection, and it’s really cool! It will be a 7 pattern collection with lots of different types of accessory designs that all feature miniskeins so you can play with lots of color. Sarah has promised hat, cowl, and mitt patterns, and all of them have been carefully designed to make the most of miniskeins and the large variety of colors they come in. She’s also taken care to make the stitch patterns easily memorizable so you can get the most out of your knitting time. You can check out the information page here, and see what it’s all about! Until the final pattern of the 7 pattern collection is released, you can get the collection for a discounted price, or even purchase the patterns a la carte as they’re released.

The coupon gives you 15% off any in-stock item purchase (including the new project bag offerings!). Thank you for your support! You can find Dana’s shop here: Unwind Yarn Company.
