Finished Projects

Sherri:
None.

Tamara:

Masks for the family to wear out in the world. I hate to sew and have very low sewing skills. I found this simple pattern to use.

Topic of the Show: Working from Stash

Sherri and Tamara talk about working from stash. And about how they organize, sort, store, curate and sometimes get rid of yarn. 

Something New: Loading Stash into Ravelry

Sherri was an early convert to using Ravelry to track her stash and shared her tips and tricks on all the different ways she uses this Ravelry feature. Tamara has never tried it before even though she's on Ravelry all the time.

That's Entertainment

Sherri:
Listening to the Dresden File books.
Excited about Peace Talks #16 coming on July 14th!
Wondering about Battle Ground #17 coming out in September. 

Tamara:
Family decided to rewatch all the Marvel movies again in release order.
Watched Iron Man.
Watched Incredible Hulk.

Board Games 

(with Knitability Rankings from 0 with no time to knit at all to 10 with time to finish half a sock during the game)

Jackbox Games. Knitability: 8 (in the audience), 0 if you are playing. We've been holding Friday night game nights using Jackbox TV and Zoom. Start a Zoom Meeting. Husband does computer-y things to share our Jackbox.tv so everyone can see it. Then each person uses their own phone to log in to the different games and play. It's fun and a great way to interact while still staying physically distant. Most games play up to 6 people and some up to 8. Kind of snarky, family setting since we have adults and kids involved. Our favorites so far are Drawful, Fibbage and Trivia Murder Party. Since we always have more people wanting to play than openings in a game, watching and knitting while the others play is good entertainment.
