(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! Also, if this is a feature you use, please let us know; your feedback is important.)

Sorry for the sound of wind! TK forgot to turn the fan off! -_-;

Projects of the Moment: WIPs Report

TinyKiwi has almost finished a scrubby washcloth–she’s keeping the ends to weave in for detention next month, or it’d already be done.  It’s based on a nubby flower block out of 75 Floral Blocks to Crochet by Betty Barnden.
She also works on Miss Jane’s Hat by Heide Petroski. Almost there with the cabled band (hopefully!)

TK works on another rosary, this time with slightly better beads!

RambunctiouSky rips out Terri’s (new) socks and re-casts on in a smaller size.

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

RambunctiouSky is a fount of finished objects, but most importantly she’s finished her Evenstar Shawl! Huzzah!

Origami Place Card written and pictorial directions

RS’s tutorial of how to make the origami place card

RS also made vases out of regular food jars and canning jars by hot gluing a strip of ribbon around the rim with a button accent. She made colorful votive candle holders by gently scuffing the candle holders with sand paper, wrapping in rubber bands, spray painting, and then taking off the rubber bands. Pretty!

Tip! Spray paint is much cheaper at home-improvement stores than at the craft stores–only problem is color selection is isn’t always as extensive.

Brainy Moments (17:32)

RS talks getting the kink out of frogged (re-used) yarn.

RS uses Jeny’s Stretchy Slip Knot Cast-On when re-casting on Socks for Terri.

TK shows how she makes “master-keys” out of eye-pins so she can cut wire to the same length every time while she’s beading.

Hyperventilate (24:50)

RS’s partner is playing through Zelda without a sword.  We also talk about how we enjoy watching people play video games while we craft.

Shiny (26:54)

TK goes on a crazy bead buying spree–so much cuteness.  She ponders making an H.R. Giger Alien-head necklace. Anyone got a spare Alien head?

TK also showcases her “don’t-tell-the-boyfriend-how-much-I-spent” shiny: new skates from SureGrip! Atom wheels! Avenger plates!

RS got new T-pins to block the shawl and a curling iron to make pretty hair.

I Spy (39:28)

RS visits a botanic garden, enjoys a docent lead tour and learns about how hummingbirds always have food throughout the year, as there is always something red blooming. Also, bumblebees! She’s also is going camping later today and expects to have something good to report next week.

TK sees (and loves) Turkey Vultures. Hawk of some sort. Agave? *sigh*

Books to Stick Your Nose In (42:52)

RS has had no time for reading due to above wedding crafting, but is going to re-read Slow River by Nicola Griffith. She bought it off of Better World Books, a good alternative to Amazon, that participates in humanitarian efforts. Check ’em out!

RS also buys new bowls and plates (extra belated shiny!)

TK borrows a book by Nicky Epstein called Knitted Embellishments and talks about all the unexpected fun she’s learned you can have with I-cord. She’s particularly interested in the Celtic knots made of I-cord…

Ear Party (47:42)

TK again enumerates the joys of pop-artist Sia.

Walks in the Urban Wilderness (49:40)

RS has been wedding-focused, so everything took a back burner to that, except the one walk in the botanic garden.

TK walks and gardens and skates (sorta) but has back-slid a little herself.

Random Remnants (51:30)

More placecards!

InkScape is like Photoshop but it’s freeee!

dafont.com has the Mathilde Font that everyone thought was hand-written by RS!

We are also planning a KNIT ALONG! Care of Magical Creatures Bracelet #1 by TinyOwlKnits, so feel free to join us.  We’re hoping to start the 1st of September. Hopefully? Yes! No hoping, it’s happening!

Projects of the Moment: WIPs Report

TinyKiwi picks her Granny Rose Square Triangle back up after two three weeks of neglect and vows to finish the horrible thing.

RambunctiouSky plugs away at her Shawl of Doooooom Evenstar Shawl, while her second pair of Socks for Terri are in time-out.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Finished Objects! (2:44)

RS’s FOs: Starfish Bottle Topper/Cat Toy~!

Preemie Hat

TK’s FO: It’s a Slouchy Hat! More importantly, it’s done!
*******HAT PIC TK!******
Accidental Brainy Moment, where TK teaches that you can cast-on over two needles if you’re a tight knitter (then pull one out when you’re done casting-on) and it helps keep your cast-on row from being too tight.

Brainy Moments (8:27)

TK made the long-promised tatting video, but hates it, so will re-do next week.

RS reminds us, if you don’t know how to make something, just ask! People won’t bite your head off, we promise.  By the Power of Raverly vested in me, we can help you make a bobble.

Hyperventilate (13:19)

RS geeks out playing the old-school version of Zelda. Much wandering around and dying ensues!

TK worries about the quality of the upcoming TV show Constantine and the upcoming Maleficent movie.  Fingers are crossed, but breath is not being held. Maleficent has been one of TK’s favorite villains for as long as she can remember, so the new movie makes her very anxious.

Books to Stick Your Nose In (18:34)

Book of Stitch Symbols [Crochet] {Japanese Vogue’s Golden Series Basic Book}: Well understood basics in the first person …Sorry if my translation is a bit wonky.  I’m by no means a proficient translator, but I content myself by usually being at least a smidge more understandable than Google Translate.
編み目記号の本 かぎ針あみ (日本ヴォーグ社の基礎BOOKゴールデンシリーズ) はじめての人にもよくわかる基礎の本
Lovely book though.  Very helpful if you like to make amigurumis or work off of Japanese patterns.

I Spy (21:04)

TK gets too excited. She sees a Red-Tailed Hawk, American Crows, a Phoebe, House Sparrows and Finches.  Interrupting TK is interrupting to remember she also saw sheep and goats. So cute!  TK learns from the British Goat Society that the little dangly bits from the chin of the goat are called tassels or toggles.  Now you know! She also saw a mostly-intact lizard skin.  Crazy!

RS sees a Red-Headed Woodpecker crossing the road.  She doesn’t know why he’s crossing the road, but our investigative reporters are getting right on it. She also see lizards and wishes to see snakes.  We then start making snake-alluring sounds of a dubiously alluring nature.

Ear Party (30:00)

TK’s been enjoying Elliott Smith and is bummed to learn he’s passed on (I’m always late to the party), but it makes the suicide scene in The Royal Tenenbaums make more sense, as they used Smith’s “Needle in the Hay” song and Smith was a known suicide risk who eventually (most-likely) took his life in 2003. Stop killing yourselves angsty singer/songwriters!  TK is currently addicted to his song Alameda.
She also listens to Liszt (here’s a link to Miserere du Trouvère de Giuseppe Verdi played by Stéphanos Thomopoulos) and we talk about the craaazay people who play Liszt.  Take care of your hands people!

RS talks about how the best place to find classical CDs is thrift stores, ’cause nobody wants them (except us apparently!) and they’re cheap! So there’s your brainy tip for the week. 😉

RS listens to her favorite clarinetist Sabine Meyer. Our hero(ine)!

Walks in the Urban Wilderness (35:40)

RS went on one hike.
TK gets a long day of gardening one day, plus extra gardening days and one walk, so she feels like this week’s goals are met.

Then we wander into Random Remnants (37:00ish)
And we talk about how we hate buying shorts, but it’s on the docket.

RS cleans trumpets! 15 years of unwashed student trumpets is apparently really, really gross.  We can imagine! Our sympathies!

Projects of the Moment: WIPs Report

RambunctiouSky plugs away at her Evenstar Shawl

TinyKiwi makes only a smidgeon of progress on her knitted slouchy hat.

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

Nothing this week!

Brainy Moments

In which we make more empty promises about buttonhole and tatting tutorials. We’ll get there~!

Shiny (4:23)

TK shows off her Slytherinish-colored fan.

RS shows off the second ball of color that she’s using for her Evenstar, and gives a quick brainy moment about blending in the color transition when switching between your gradient yarns.

Hyperventilate (10:16)

RS talks about Papercraft Dioramas by Davy and Kristin McGuire!

TK mentions the papercraft version of Howl’s Moving Castle, with a time-lapse video of the guy making it, and RS mentions a lifesize elephant origami made by artist Sipho Mabona.

RS looks forward to playing the old-school version of Zelda. Huzzah!

Books to Stick Your Nose In (14:50)

TK shows some thread crochet designs in the book:
( かぎ針で編む花レース ) トゥーオヤのアクセサリー

(Flower Lace Crochet) Turkish Oya Lace Accessories

RS ponders a trip to the Cliffs of Insanity, and thinks about beading the edge of her Evenstar.

I Spy (21:50)

RS sees dolphins! Pods and pods of dolphins and pelicans.  Apparently, there was a whale to see, but RS didn’t.

TK reports that her resident Mockingbird has picked up an agitated Blue Jay call to his car-alarm remix, and TK has also seen a Phoebe, but that’s all there is to report.

We squee over CuteOverload.com and talk about its ability to make a bad day better. ❤

Ear Party (27:03)

TK geeks out about Chromeo coming out with a new album White Women and listens to their single Jealous (I Ain’t With It)

RS talks about how Ani DiFranco’s Living In Clip album is good angry-girl music to clean the house to.

Walks in the Urban Wilderness (31:42)

RS plays bocci ball, but othewise misses her goals.
TK gets a long day of gardening one day, and gardens 2 extra times, but gets no walks in.

Princess Sweetie Cat appearance! We’re so humbled, Your Highness!

Random Remnants (34:24)

TK geeks out about Grumpy Cat and the Pout Pout Fish (her spirit animals.)

Fava beans! Who knew they were so difficult to find?! That and Pigeon Peas (guandu.) Thanks for the help produce guy! Falafel ensued! It’s TK’s (third) favorite food!

We (re-)geek out on TinyOwlKnits’ Care of Magical Creatures charm bracelets. Adorbs! Check em out, buy the patterns on Ravelry.

RS ponders making her own stitch markers.

Sisters of the Holy Fiber -Episode 15- Life is Full of WIPs

Sisters of the Holy Fiber Episode 15 <Click here to listen to audio only!

Projects of the Moment: WIPs Report (0:37)

TinyKiwi works on one of her longest long-term WIPs–a colorwork crocheted shell scarf!  RambunctiouSky tries to convince her to make it into a cowl. TK also makes a smidge of progress on the stained-glass “swatch” (actaully wristers) she’s making based on the  Tracery Vest out of the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits Magazine.

RS makes the ever-exciting washcloths! (Hey! Somebody’s got to!)

We talk break month, more O.W.L. plotting, the Hedwig Memorial Society in Slytherin, and other things to do with the craziness in the Harry Potter Knit/Crochet House Cup on Ravelry.

SPOILER ALERT at (7:20) as we discuss some of who dies, on the very off chance you haven’t read the 6th or 7th Harry Potter books (or movies.)

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Finished Objects! (9:30)

TK finishes a small shuttle-tatted flower.

Brainy Moments (13:34)

RS talks about how the border for the Evenstar Shawl requires more of the color that’s to be used for the border section and The Unique Sheep makes it so!

TK plots to give a beginning tatting demo, but hasn’t figured out how to make it happen yet.

Shiny (15:55)

RS shows off her new hand-dyed 50% silk 50% merino gradient yarn in the Winter Wonderland colorway from the aforementioned Unique Sheep (we don’t get paid for this name dropping, people!) which she bought with the Evenstar Shawl pattern, as the yarn is one of the recommended choices listed in the pattern page.  RS talks about how the Evenstar Shawl is gigantic and needs a lot of heavy blocking, so the yarn choice for the pattern has to hold up to that need and if you decide you want to substitute your own yarn, keep that in mind.

Books to Stick Your Nose In (20:50)

Reads a smidge more of Orphan Train by Christina Baker, and re-reads The Tempest by William Shakespeare. Oh noes! It’s true! TK is an unashamed Shakespeare fan, and is probably one of the only people in her age group who can spell Shakespeare right on the first try. MacBeth has been her favorite ever since she was a wee child (she was a strange child.)  She also talks a little bit about the 75 Floral Blocks to Crochet by Betty Barnden that she’s talked about before.

RS reads Singing Games for Children by Denise Gagné, and sings a song game from it!

I Spy (28:16)

RS sees llamas in someone’s backyard while she was hiking.  We squee.
TK only sees the neighbor’s cat.

Ear Party (29:15)

TK listens to some EDM Trap by Baauer, notably Swerve, and gives a very brief overview on her understanding of the differences between Trap (Rap) and Trap (EDM/Electronic Dance Music) as genres of music.

RS listens to Meshell Ndegeocello (Sorry we butcher your beautiful name Meshell! which Wikipedia tells us is pronounced N-deh-gay-o-chel-o), and RS is listening to the album Weather

Walks in the Urban Wilderness (32:52)

TK gets her 9-5 gardening work-out in on Tuesday, and one extra session of gardening in, but has otherwise missed her exercise goals.

RS wanted to walk or bike to work more than she rode in the car to work, but that didn’t quite happen this week, but she still biked and walked and biked again, so she’s still doing great!

Random Remnants (A bit before 36:35)

RS and her S.O. sign up for CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box and talks about what that is and how they’re using it.  They’re loving it, so tune in to find out more about it!

We talk again about fresh food. (Sorry we talk about it so much! We can’t help it! Apparently we just love fresh food!)  Then we talk about freezing bread to extend the shelf-life, especially for preservative-free breads.

Sisters of the Holy Fiber -Episode 5- She’s Got Craziness

Sisters of the Holy Fiber – Episode 5- She’s Got Craziness <Click here to listen to audio only!

Projects of the Moment: WIPs Report (1:00)

Tiny Kiwi is still doggedly plugging away at her Fibonerdy Shawl.  In addition, she sets up a small counted cross-stitch pattern by Textile Heritage Collection to begin working on.

Rambunctious  Sky is working on her Sashiko Cardigan and thinking about casting on a pair of socks.

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

RS made the Crystal Peak Snowflake by Deborah Atkinson which is published on her snowflake-a-licious Snowcatcher blog. She also made two smaller snowflakes by ending on early rounds. The thread is Daiso Cotton Lace Yarn #20 in Marine Blue.

Snowflake

She’s also finished her Gemini shirt! Needs blocking. It  has a slip stitch edging added around the collar to keep it from rolling.  What a good idea!

We talk about RS’s tragic-for-her, fantastic-for me, sweater that sadly/happily fits TK better.  More news on that when it’s out of time-out.

Books ta stick yur nose in:

TK rereads a few favorites:
The Annotated Persuasion by Jane Austen,  annotations by David Shapard; &
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon

RS finds an old copy of The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury, and TK geeks out about the old cover art.

Brainy Moments-How to: Tips and Tricks

RS used a technique for a better stockinette to ribbing join, learned from the TECH Knitter blog. She also tried TECH Knitter’s Method 3 for dealing with the final stitch of the chain bind off row, but was unsatisfied with how it looks in ribbing.

RS also took a video of how she did the slip stitch crochet edging on her Gemini:

TK shows how she organizes her embroidery thread snippets on a piece of foam, pinning everything to keep it in place.  She also uses the same piece of foam for needle felting, blocking small knit pieces, and keeping her macrame threads organized while she works.

Use pins with large heads, place them close, and your threads won’t wander

I Spy: Nature Lover’s Segment

TK is still complaining that everyone has apparently missed the “It’s still winter!” memo, and is happily peeping and beeping away, nesting and getting ready for spring.  She also went out and bought a hummingbird feeder for our dad (since he likes hummingbirds…there’s no accounting for taste), so hopefully we’ll tell you how well it works in a few weeks.

Ear Party

TK has Lorde‘s song Team stuck in her head, but recommends checking out the rest of her stuff if you’ve only heard Royals so far, as it’s all great.  She also rocks some great Hermione Hair! (How can that be bad?!)
We’ll leave you with one last link to a live version of White Teeth Teens, as her live stuff is also awesome.

TK also tangents a bit and recommends Rookie Mag, a website by and for teenage girls.  If you are a teenage person, or know one, we recommend it.

RS listens to one of the albums of our youth: The Harder They Come soundtrack, and geeks out a little at Rene Flemming singing the national anthem.

Come on over and share what you’re listening to on our Ear Party thread in our SotHF Ravelry Page!  Music, books or podcasts–anything is fair game.

We also tangent a wee bit again (Us? Nooo!) and start trying to quote Mr. Bennet, with the correct line being, “For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?”

Walks in the Urban Wilderness

RS is still (still! STILL!) sick, so only walks once.  Until she gets better, her fitness goals are on hold and/or whatever she can manage.

TK meets her goals by walking 5 times.  (Her current goal is 4-7 x a week)

If you’d like to get more active, and see what got us going on our own fitness goals, check out The Weasley Sisters’ Podcast and their Cardio Knitting Challenge, for more details.

Random Remnants

TK reviews Wet n Wild’s Fastdry polish, color is SaGreena the Teenage Witch
…long story short…it’s bad, which is sad ’cause it’s a perfectly beautiful emerald/fig-beetle green.  For a full review listen to the podcast.

TK talks about other uses for nail polish, and talks about some art pieces by one of her old metal arts instructors, Michael Dale Bernard.  We don’t have permission to show his pieces here, so we’ve linked to one of the pieces that TK was talking about.  A lot of his stuff is for sale, so if you see something you like, contact him! His pierced work is amazing and it’s all by hand. (!!!)

We also talk about practical uses for small completed cross-stitch patterns, so if you have a different idea on how to utilize the small piece TK shows, drop us a note here, or on Ravelry! She’s very open to suggestions.

RS gives advice on how to carry yarn up the side of TK’s Fibonerdy shawl, since TK was nervous about messing it up.

And last but not least, a link to TK’s two-colored crochet Mulberry Hues Shell Scarf that she references when talking about carrying color along the side of your work.

That’s all for this week, and thanks for joining us!

Sisters of the Holy Fiber -Episode 4- Informational Placards!

Sisters of the Holy Fiber -Episode 4- Informational Placards! <Click to listen to audio only!

Shownotes!

Projects of the Moment: WIPS Progress Report (0:26)

Rambunctious Sky plugs away at her Gemini shirt, while Tiny Kiwi finally cracks into her Fibonerdy Shawl.  Progress! Glorious progress…

Timber  makes an appearance!  He’s always nosy, but then appears less than enthused by his moment of fame.  Oh the fickleness of cats!

TK needs to sit down and calculate how many rows a day she needs  to accomplish her shawl in time.  50% needs to be accomplished by the 28th of February, and it needs to be done by the end of March.  Will she or won’t she, friends?!  RS is taking bets now! (Ok, she’s totally not, and probably won’t condone betting, but she’s not typing the show notes! Bwah ha ha! Here’s to hoping she doesn’t read through them!) >_>  Moving on…

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane–It’s FOs! (4:14)

RS gets inspired, gets fabric scraps from the creative re-use place and makes a mini-quilt collage to hide her sinks knobbly knees. Pink topstitching!  TK warns RS not to try sewing over Velcro made for hard surfaces, as the glue is super tacky and will gum up your machine, but thankfully RS’s machine couldn’t handle it anyway! Crisis averted!

TK makes the Dahlia Circle, but mis-pronounces the book it’s out of (she’s slightly number dyslexic aka dyscalculic, so bear with her)–it’s *75* Floral Blocks to Crochet by Betty Barnden, and it is an all-around lovely book.
Now what though? Is it a doily? Is it a coaster…perhaps even a knee-warmer?…Pillow cover?  Sigh.

Things to Hyperventilate Over (4:10)

TK enthuses about the old anime show called Mushi-shi that she’s watching.  Available on YouTube for who knows how long, so check it out! She’s really enjoying it.  The little supernatural mushi are pretty adorbs.

Check out this Pride & Prejudice engagement! Squeeeee~!

RS is STILL SICK! This is a redonk amount of time to be sick so the doctor prescribes 6 hours of “Yummy Man” aka Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.  A&E version of P&P wondrous, and soothes the soul.

TK watches the much older BBC P&P on Netflix, laughs at it’s stiff & dated Darcy, and enjoys its saucy Lizzie.

Shiny! (15:28)

TK gives a tip to jewelers or anyone aspiring to be one…spring for good ear wire/hooks, and round the ends with a cup burr! Use nickel-free silver! Real silver! People have allergies! It’s a real thing!

Slytherin Nails! The mini-segment (17:03)

Star Attraction nail enamel by Revlon,                  color is Reality Star

Polish has steel(?) filings as very fine glitter suspended in the green polish, and the bottle comes with a magnet on the lid to make a sort of star-burst pattern of glitter in your wet polish.  On my hands, this one chipped too much and too often for me to be completely happy with, but the color was nice and the starburst pattern was something a little different. I may try it on my toes to see if it holds up better and if it stains with long use (it didn’t with 1 week of wear!).  I’ll probably do this one again for St. Patty’s Day as the starburst reminds me of 4-leaf clovers.

I recommend gooping it on in one coat to make sure there’s enough filings to make a pattern and to make sure it doesn’t dry too fast (which were two problems I had), and you really have to hold the magnet there for a while to make sure it sets properly without dripping back out into a uniform color.  It’s really hard to keep the magnet close, hovering over your nail in just the right spot to make the pattern without dinging it.  I tried using another strong magnet, but it was too small to work the same as the one in the lid. This one really is a balancing act and while over-all I still liked it well enough to use it as a once-in-a-while color,  it definitely didn’t make the cut for every-day nail color.

OT…Off Topic–We talk about how good we’ve been not buying yarn and reigning in our spending…by not going anywhere.  No mink yarn for us! Sadness!

Brainy Moments–How To: Tips and Tricks (20:35)

RS rambles on about waist shaping, tells you to compare your project to a piece you have that already fits well, and modify your pattern to add or take out waist shaping so that the finished project fits you properly! RS would like to get the book Little Red in the City by Ysolda Teague because it has a good reputation for teaching you how to make sweaters that fit your body.

TK discusses the Fit to Flatter group on Rav and elsewhere

TK also shows off how to make some cute decorative LED flower lights, out of a battery-operated string of Christmas lights and some cheap flowers from the Dollar Tree.

I Spy: nature lover’s segment (28:00)

We love trees!  The Huntington Gardens are splended and quite extensive.

TK’s critter count is high this week with a visit to both the Huntington and the Nature Center: Great Blue Heron, Snowy Egret, Allen’s Hummingbirds, Mallards, American Coots (so cutes!), Red Eared Silders (turtles), Pied-Billed Grebe, Crow, Fox Squirrels, California Ground Squirrels, Western Fence Lizard and a Western Box Elder Bug (or two).

Also, if you dislike my willy-nilly capitalization of bird, plant and animal names, read this, and heap it up with a side of I really don’t care.  But with LOVE. ❤ Always with love.

For bigger pictures, go to our Flikr.  If you know what the plants are, drop us a note! We’d appreciate it. 🙂

Western Box Elder Bugs Western Fence Lizard

Such pretty purple stems with the green leaves. A+ job, Nature!

Lovely bracts, as well

Some enterprising child or squirrel stuck a nut in the center of this stump

Musical Menagerie/Ear Party! (33:15)

RS talks about Brian Eno–no wait! Don’t change the channel!  RS appreciates ambient music for it’s power to help you chill out. RS has BE’s Music for Airports on every device she has, so maybe you should check it out too, if you feel a need to relax. We seem to have a need for relaxing things to listen to. What does that say about us?! Maybe we should go tuck seeds in stumps ourselves.

TK talks about the Armenian Duduk, a wind instrument, and the Chinese Pipa, a stringed instrument. Check them out and broaden your musical horizons, you won’t regret it!

Here’s also a link to a Chinese ensemble. This one just cracks me up at how hard they’re working and how into it they are.  This other group is much more mellow, if you’d like to start with something less frenetic, although I’m not always enthused by the Erhu parts…

Walks in the Urban Wilderness (36:08)

RS met her goal of walking twice a week, even while STILL being sick, so wow!

TK met her goal of walking twice a week, and exceeded it so talked about upping the ante.  She also discusses the merits of setting a flexible goal, with a minimum that’s attainable and a max that pushes you a little harder.  TK’s new goal for this week is walking 4-7 times.  We’ll see how she does!

Random Remnants (39:10)

TK talks about the wacky legwarmer/kneewarmer challenge in Slytherin House this month.  TK references RS’ Octopus Phone Cozy. The pattern for the applique octopus is the Demi Octopus. (Which is really a sextopus because it only has six arms, but hey! Accidents can happen.)  She also talks about the colorful geometric beaded leg decorations that the Kuna Indian ladies in Panama wear, but to make a knit version sounds a lot more problematic.  Got a good wacky idea? Drop us a note here or in our Rav group!

Here’s some links to Kuna ladies and their rockin’ awesome beaded leg bangles.

That’s it for this week! If you have any questions about any thing we cover in our podcast, feel free to drop us a note here, or in our Ravelry Group. 🙂 Thanks for tuning in and stopping by!
