Thanks to Cheryl for saying that she would be interested in some sewing supplement videos.

Knitting content begins at 22:00.

Books: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett, The Yarn Harlot by Stephanie Pearl McPhee, The Giver and Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry, Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke.

No finished objects this week!

WIPS: Lafitte Shawl by Denise Bell of Lost City Knits in Lost City Oak Barn Merino Lace. I am on track to finish this by Thanksgiving. It is a Christmas gift for my mom. It is only about 4 years late.

Song of the Sea Cowl by Louise Zass-Bangham out of Sweet Sparrow Yarns Pure Reason colorway on the Nuthatch base. This is for the Purls Before Twine Song of the Sea KAL.

Surprise Stripes by Anna Johanna out of my sock scraps. I am almost done with these bad boys!

Cross Stitch – It’s a book mark that is a gift and therefore a secret until it is finished. I am on the back-stitching part now.

Sewing – Decades of Style 1940’s Empire Waist Trousers in a hounds-tooth stretch woven. Spoiler alert, since recording I have finished these and found that the fabric does not stretch QUITE enough! They are about 5 pounds too tight.

My next BIG project will be Ginger Flares by Closet Case Files in some black Cone Mills Denim that I bought from Zede’s Sewing Studio. I experienced beyond excellent customer service from Mallory and Zede, the owners. I found out about this denim by listening to their audio podcast, Sewing Out Loud.

Training: My St. Jude’s Hero training shirt came in the mail. It is that awkward time of year when I need to run longish on the weekends, but it is still really too hot for long runs.

Thanks for watching! Did you find the cheeseburger?
