Topic of the Show: Knitting On Any Budget

Sherri and Tamara talk through planning out a quarter's worth of knitting at different budget levels. They each figured out and compared notes on how they could knit for three months on $20 a quarter, $20 a month, $20 a week, and $20 a day. (We talk about lots of numbers here, so we're apologizing in advance if you are doing any counting while listening.)

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)

Overcooked. Knitability: 0 (because you each have a game controller and are trying to do all the things before the timer runs out). Crazy co-op cooking action game we play through Steam on the computer. You get food orders, have to go pick up the good, carry it around, chop it, cook it, plate it and deliver it. 4 spots so the 4 of us play it together. Chaos and kitchen fires ensue often. It is surprisingly fun even with all the mayhem.
