Sisters of the Holy Fiber -Episode 24- Sticks of Fury

(We are working on a new place to store our audio. We won’t update in iTunes until we resolve this. Your patience is requested!)

Projects of the Moment: WIPs Report

TinyKiwi has been working on her Miss Jane’s Hat by Heide Petroski. TK starts the FO section a little early showing us a rosary that she made while listening to the BBC radio program of Jane Eyre.

RambunctiouSky is exclusively working on the edging of her Evenstar Shawl! TK and the dapper Felix the cat remind us of the villain from the cartoon Inspector Gadget and RS sings the theme song.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Finished Objects!

RS made a pair of fingerless mitts for her Slytherin Swap partner and forgot to take a picture. TK forgot to post her finished project for a HPKCHC class. Oops. We mention SOS which stands for Student on Sabbatical. You can still turn things into classes, but you don’t earn points for any of the houses.

Brainy Moments

TK learned a lot about working with wire and beads from working on the rosary. Have questions? Please ask!

We discuss the possibility of an Etsy store and are inspired by the fact that we are actually doing the podcast thing!

RS says start your wedding shawl early! Don’t follow the procrastinating sisters!

Shiny

RS got a really pretty purple cloth purse that is a perfect project bag/purse for the shawl.

TK did a little stash enhancement and acquired six small balls of fingering weight white cotton for free! We brainstorm possible projects including snowflakes or a lacy swimsuit coverup.

Hyperventilate

RS as super spoiled by her Slytherin Swap Partner. Thank you so much!

We might do a Care of Magical Creatures Charm Bracelet 1 knit-a-long!

RS tangents about knowing two words her mother didn’t know, woad and kerfuffle, something that has never happened before.

For the wedding, RS shows two batik dyed fabrics she will be using for table runners.

Books to Stick Your Nose In

TK finished Longbourn by Jo Baker, a novel written from the servant’s perspective of Pride and Prejudice, and Lexicon by Max Berry. Both are recommended!

RS has been having a summer reading session of queer books. She read Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown and My Education by Susan Choi. Both of these are also recommended!

TK also read the collection of really good but really sad stories called And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.

FO again!

TK shares the drawstring bag she crocheted to hold her measuring tape in her purse.

I Spy

TK saw a racoon!

RS saw many things in Hawaii including Red-crested cardinals, mynah birds, ginger flowers, fan palms, and geckos.

We talk insects, large spiders, and the facebook group Confessions of a Bug Addict.

Ear Party

RS is very excited to discover Brenda Dayne of Cast-On is podcasting again! Her current series is called Welsh for Rainbow. Here is a link to the Cast-On audio archive.

TK listens to a radio show of an abridged version of Jane Eyre produced by the BBC. TK is enjoying Lana Del Rey of the sad-core genre and describes it as good background music. She is addicted to the Bourban Princess Dark of Days album

Walks in the Urban Wilderness

TK has been walking and gardening.  RS went snorkeling!
