How we spent our summer vacation
Jen – Fantasizing about her Fall vacation
Jane – Visiting family, birthday, kickball – lots and lots of kickball
Broke Ass Knits
Reduce/ reuse/ recycle
UnRavelers group – thanks for the tip, Cindi!
Why Jane hates thrift store projects
Because she really wants to do this Lee Meredith project but can’t source the raw materials!
There’s always a good reason it’s on clearance, even if you choose to ignore it (Hello, AWFUL COLORWAYS!)
Sometimes it’s just easier/cheaper to buy your materials.
Case in point: ReSew Orange Dress
Goodwill makes you buy a whole damn bag of garbage yarn to get one good skein.
Jen’s take – “really inexpensive” is bad; “less expensive” is good
Our Knit Picks love/hate relationship
Pros: great deals, nice-ish yarn, comprehensive website search tools/info, yarn “families” (Swish, Comfy, Gloss, CotLin, Brava, Shine)
Cons: lame colors, limited availability (side note: their business aliases are confusing)
General iTunes, blog, Rav group (especially for your kindness while we took a vacation), and quemment thank you!
Outro – Jane can’t believe she forgot to mention The High Strung! Free Mp3s on their website! Especially check out #19 – The Lifestyle that Got Away and #20 – Bad With My Hands
