Episode 2: New Group on Ravelry!

I reviewed the dreamz Symfonie Wood interchangeable needles on the first show and my friend, Jill, thought I need to point out that they have their size printed right on the needle. It is actually printed in two spots. I also wanted to point out that the needles are color coded. Each size needle is a different color.

New project:
Enormous stripey snake by Comma

I only worked on the Mini Mochi Fair Isle Cowl since Thursday.

Finished Objects:
2 Snuggles - One is based on Grandma's favorite dishcloth, the other is the fun fur snuggle found on the Snuggle project website.

Stash enhancement:
Mini Mochi in colorways 108 and 111
HPKY - Hand Painted Knitting Yarns in the Donegal Sock Yarn Superwash. One is shades of purple, the other is shades of blue with some purple and green. They don't have color ways printed on the label.

I have started a group on Ravelry - CaffeinatedKnitting. Please join me in the group. Introduce yourselves and leave me feedback about the show if you are so enclined. I will be proposing the first KAL to start March 1st... please let me know what you think of my ideas!

Find me on Ravelry:

I have submitted the podcast to itunes and will let everyone know when it is available there.

Happy Knitting!
