A new cowl for Alexis, an infinity scarf or two for Holly and a new cowl for mehave been completed since the last episode. The third scarf for the Operation Gratitude campaign is complete with the goal to finish two more before December.

What's in my bag?
- Plum Crazy Cowl is coming along nicely
- Orange Sharf is moving forward at a trickle
- Midnight summer's triangle scarf has been retired to the craft cabinet with frogging in it's future
What's in my ears?
- My usual yarn-lovin' podcasts referenced in previous episodes
- The Nerdist
- The Moth (a must if you love story telling!)
What's in my stash?
The cowls mentioned in the finished objects section were quick crochet projects using Malabrigo Black #195 and Sealing Wax and Lion Brand Homespun in Wildfire.

Those yarns were in my stash ever so briefly! I want to give Sheepish a whirl by Vickie Howell and add that to my stash as soon as possible.
In other news, I'm thoroughly enjoying a Craftsy class with Linda Permann, Beyond Rectangles. I highly recommend this format of instruction! I also whipped out my knitting instructional video called [amazon_link id="B000A0P6A4" target="_blank" ]The Complete Beginner's Guide to Knitting by Nici McNally[/amazon_link] to study up on correct technique and try to improve my tension and speed. Excitedly I briefly talk about being asked to review a new crochet book by Lark Publishing.
