Episode 11 - The Mid-Holiday Episode

Ariel, Cassandra and Catherine talk about holiday knitting, a bit of Cassandra’s spindling, stash enhancement followed by stash guilt, and then the random.

Catherine is knitting the Two-Tone Ribbed Shrug from Fitted Knits.

Ariel is knitting Central Air.

Cassandra is still knitting the Endpaper Mitts for Alexis. She's also started spinning a bit!

There's also talk of holiday knitting and which recipients should get handknits.

The girls ooh and ahh over their new BMFA Raven yarn, and Ariel shares her stash enhancement from Ancient Threads.

On to the topic of boys... Catherine's got her eye on some projects in the newest of the SnB series, and Ariel is contemplating Durrow as a way to screen potential boyfriends. Cassandra suggests you just smell them.
