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.

Because this episode was so long, this is just part 1 of 2. Part 2 should be up next week and contains a book report, a science lesson, and a yarn review plus a little more craziness... of course.

Also we got a comment on our last entry from Ancient Threads Farm & Fiber Mill which we spoke about - Catherine got some of their yarn at Rhinebeck. They do have an Etsy shop! (And I've ordered some beautiful hand-dyed sock yarn since I was so unlucky to miss their booth at Rhinebeck.)

Killing vampires, why Catherine will be wearing a turtle to Rhinebeck and what we should hit up while we’re there. Also hear the tales of sad and happy socks. And plenty of outtakes this week (they’re after the contact info for those of you who haven’t discovered them yet.)
Ariel is knitting York from Noro Knits.
Most of the group is heading to Rhinebeck this weekend!
Cathy just finished Emerald from Knitty.
The Gemstone Debate:
Ruby is corundum and emerald is beryl, but they both contain chromium as an impurity. So we’re all sort of right!
Catherine isn't sure she'll finish Argosy in time for Rhinebeck, so she might wear Coronet instead.
And we announce the winners of the Knitting Disasters contest! (More details on the podcast or in an upcoming post by Catherine.)
P.S. If you're at Rhinebeck feel free to come and say hi to us - we'll be wearing FiberCult T-shirts and likely hanging around in a big group so we should be easy to find.

The links - very few this time!

We're still working out how to record Amanda over Skype without echos (we use one mic for the rest of us since 5 headsets is not practical if even possible) but we hope to get that under control soon. Also I've had a cold so I wasn't going to make you all hear me cough and sniffle this week.
On to the links:

Their submission form was down for a while and then our submission got "lost" and I had to resubmit, but we're up and hopefully that will make it a little easier for our fabulous listeners to subscribe.
Amanda is down in DC now and we'll be trying to figure out how to get her recorded in the podcast as soon as she gets a little more settled.

Also a quick note about the iTunes listing:
I've submitted the podcast rss to iTunes but it is still not searchable for some reason. I tried to submit it again but it seems there's something wrong with iTunes at the moment because it won't let us submit the feed.
Until then you can subscribe with iTunes by going to Advanced -> Subscribe to Podcast and entering our rss feed url: http://fibercult.libsyn.com/rss
Thanks for listening!
