Episode 3: Time Management

How we Manage our Knitting Time
Lace is out of the question for us while the toddlers are around! Clare recently ripped back some legwarmers. She now has a simpler lace scarf on the needles, which is reserved for solitary time!  

On the Needles
Clare is steadily working on her baby bonnet, using Rico Baby Classik dk in green twistShe cast on Isabell Kraemer’s Alpengluehen (Alpine Glow) cardigan this week, using ggh solitaire in green, and made a mini sweater decoration. She hopes to finish her son’s socks by next week!
Molly now has sleeves on her cardigan! She’s finished her first sock, with a pretty cable twist down the side! The second one is on the needles and she’s really enjoying knitting with Lynai yarn. She’s having a lot of fun knitting George the Giant Squid, and Jenna Krapur from Retro Lemon Studios Knitting Podcast would like to give away one pattern to one of our viewers! Molly has also made some tiny Christmas decorations!

Yarn Review
We are both knitting cardigans with ggh Solitaire. Molly completed an Owlet sweater for her daughter using the same yarn a while back.

Stash Management
Molly has acquired some gorgeous green Wollmeise Lace Garn! She considered knitting the Make a Wish cardigan by Joji Locatelli, or Georgia by Jane Richmond. with it but has yet to finally decide what she will cast on.

Other Crafty Projects
Clare just gifted a handmade book to her father for his 70th!

She is also working on a crocheted garland of stars for Christmas!

Inspired as always by Knitabulls Podcast, Molly is spinning!
