This week: Abstract Fiber is pleased to announce Macho Socks! Now available on our website AbstractFiber.com
, customers can order any color sock yarn they like in a 150g skein.
50% more yarn means Macho Socks provide enough yarn for most men’s
socks, and costs less than buying a whole extra skein. Sasquatch may
still need two... We’ve also added an option to order triple skeins for
those larger shawl or sweater projects. No knots mean fewer ends to
work in and more continuous knitting pleasure. As always, free shipping
on orders over $100 in the US and Canada at AbstractFiber.comThis week:
This week we've been inspired by Fair Isle at Purlescence Yarns.
Nathania cast on her Vancouver 2010 Olympic sweater, designed by Dale
of Norway. The fall books from Dale feature beautifully simple, classic
Scandinavian designs for the whole family. Sandi cast on the Kindle
scarf from Fiona Ellis' Inspired Fair Isle book in Frog Tree Alpaca
Sport. Fair Isle's everywhere this fall. How will it inspire you?This week:

Events: (00:34)

- Gigi will NOT be attending PIQF.
- We will be attending The NYS Sheep and Wool Festival (Rhinebeck) on Octover 17-18. We will be joined by Meghan, from the Stitch-It! Podcast.

On the Needles: (6:39)

Gigi is working on a sock out of the Ceallach Dyes Superboo. We discuss the 52-pair plunge and Nakniswemodo. Jasmin has been hit by inspiration freight train, and has been PLOWING through her tangled yoke cardigan. Jasmin has also cast on a "Rick" sock from  Sock Innovations
out of the A Verb For Keeping Warm 70% Superwash Merino/30% silk in "Indigo Blue Sky". Jasmin has cast on 48 sts on size 2 needles.

Jasmin finds inspiration on the Ravelry Radar. She is in love with reanbean's "Drops yoke sweater". Gigi is in love with the Dayflower sweater from Knotions. Jasmin and Gigi want to knit the Sunrise Circle cardigan- both out of Jasmin's handspun. (Jasmin's is Crosspatch Creations "Rhiannon's Fire", Gigi's is out of the Three Bags Full "Crimson Shadows". )

Our map got wiped! Would you be kind enough to re-add yourself?

Mother Knows Best: (24:02)

We talk about finding time to knit.
Jasmin recommends always have knitting in your bag, in the event of
needing Tech Support, a horrific traffic backup, or the random surprise
spare time. Gigi wants a foot-driven mouse so she can surf Ravelry and knit simultaneously.

Gigi spreads the gospel of having routines. Jasmin talks about her "do it now" principle.

Contest! (37:14)

We're doing a contest, to find contests! Join in our Ravelry group thread and make your suggestions!

When Knitting Attacks: (38:37)

Gigi does battle with her sewing machine and angles. Jasmin makes an increasing error on her Tangled Yoke Cardigan.

Review: (43:26)

This week we review the Ceallach Dyes
Superboo (65% Superwash Merino/ 35% Bamboo). We talk about our bias
against bamboo. Jasmin compares it to the Pagewood Farms Yukon.
We like the colors, we like the quality, we like the yardage. What we
don't like is the bamboo. (If you like knitting with bamboo, you'll
like this yarn.)
