Projects: Current, Finished, Fantasy and Wearing

  • Knitting on her brother's Christmas socks. 
  • And she's been working on her April Cardigan almost monogamously.   



  • This isn't a knitting mulligan. This is more of a life tactical error. She's mentioned before that her younger teen is pretty good on a unicycle. Good enough to juggle while riding the unicycle or to play the trumpet while riding the unicycle. So she's been following a Colorado Front Range unicyclist group on Instagram. A while back there was a video of a guy going down a crazy mountain trail on a unicycle. She was shocked. It looked like such a stupid idea. So she decided to show it to the younger teen to talk about how stupid and making better choices....instead he watched and said "looks like fun". And she thought - ack! This was a huge tactical error!!! Link to the video here so you can see what she means. 

Topic of the Show: Gift Ideas for Knitters 

Sherri and Tamara talk about Gifts for Knitters. Sherri talked in general about the types of gift giving she values. And a bit about why joining a Swap Group is a really great way to get and give awesome gifts. Tamara wrote this blog post about her favorite 2021 Gift Ideas for Knitters. Some of the gifts she wrote about on the blog and talked about for this podcast are: 

Knitting Needle Gauges from Sunrise Grove
Knitting Bags from Zoe's Bag Boutique
Stitch markers and stitch marker sets

Plus some discussion of gift books, gift yarn, gift certificates/cards and supporting the LYS.

That's Entertainment (what we're watching, reading, eating and playing while we knit)


  • Read The 7.5 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (or just 7 Deaths in the UK for some reason) by Stuart Turton. This one is like the movie Groundhog Day as a murder mystery. 
  • Made Potato Leek Soup. It was tasty and felt very French with just a handful of ingredients.
  • Streamed the newly released Dune movie on HBOmax. 
  • Visited an actual yarn store! She found herself in Loose Park in KC. Then realized she was about a mile from the Yarn Social yarn shop.
