This week I was busy with Thanksgiving and didn't get much knitting time but I'm back with Vlogmas plans. I have six (yikes!) advent calendars and four yarn-y projects for December.

The Big Head People
This week, I have a finished-ish hat. I'm also looking at more advent patterns as well as hat patterns. There's also a book I want.

Advent Pattern Ideas Including Crochet
This week I finished two projects and canned a lot of applesauce. I'm starting to make knitting (and maybe crochet) plans for my advent minis. The hens are laying lots of eggs and I think the new cat is a Dr. Who fan.

The Last Time
This week I have six finished objects! And I've pulled two projects from the Basket of Shame. I'm making plans for Vlogmas 2021 and I'm looking forward to all of them! We also have a new addition to the farm. I also spend a little time talking about the loss of a sweet knitting friend.

Pepper Jam and the Curling Mist Shawl
This episode, I have finished a pair of vanilla socks and I'm almost finished with the Curling Mist Shawl. I have plans to cast on the second shawl from the current season of Helen Stewart's Shawl Society, the Silver River Shawl. The container garden is doing well. I'm harvesting 100+ peppers a week! Also, pepper jam is not fool proof.

This week, it took two tries to record the episode. I finished a couple of projects and I can share the test knit I was working on last month. We spent some time at the lake and I went kayaking for the first time. We also had a rough week on the farm. Also, I'm pretty sure I said "microphone" when I meant "microscope".

The Basket of Shame
This week, I have lots of finished projects because it's been so long- so very, very long- since I released an episode. I finished my Tea with Jam and Bread pullover, several pairs of socks, three baby hats and several shawls, one of them made from the "world's ugliest color". There's also farm news. We have two Pyr puppies, Buster and Keaton. They are 7 months old and almost 70 pounds each.

Tunisian Crochet and Other Adventures
This week, I attempted Tunisian Crochet (Spoiler alert: I liked it). I also tried a couple of new recipes and my husband and I did some sleuthing and family research. My Night Shift Shawl is finished and I started a new shawl from an older pattern, the Boneyard Shawl by Stephen West.

I Didn't Hate It
This week, I finished the Slider Gloves and enjoyed knitting them, like a lot. Who knew knitting individual fingers could be so addictive? I also cast on the Luminary Socks by Curious Handmade. I didn't get much done but I'm looking forward to working on them. There are new bags in the Bede Sisters Etsy shop and I'm a sponsor of the Splash Pad Party KAL with Down Cellar Studio.

Three Chicks and a Goat Instigator
This week, I have two finished projects including my Vanilla Socks. I only worked a little on the Nightshift Shawl, but I cast on the Goldfish Memory Shawl and Slider Gloves. There's a contest thread in the Ravelry group where you can win a copy of the Slider Gloves. I'll be working on these in the coming weeks and we can chat about the pattern.

This week I don't have anything finished but I have been working on several things. I'm almost finished with the Super Secret Test Knit project. I've also gotten past the heel of the second vanilla sock in One Twisted Tree "Frozen Forest of Dean" yarn. The Nightshift Shawl is coming along and I cast on Goldfish Memories by Casapinka. We have a new male goat who is adorable and are hoping to hatch some eggs in our incubator. Also, I waited for 3.5 hours to buy chicken.

Wish You Were Here
This week, I have two finished projects-Bonbon, a knit toy bunny, and the Milky Oolong Shawl. I'm very happy with both. I'm still working on the Night Shift Shawl and a pair of vanilla socks are still on my needles but that's it. Really, just two WiPs. I've been working in my herb garden and dried some oregano and sage today. Also, I miss being with you all at retreats and festivals this spring. Wish you were here.

Support Your Local Dyer
This week, I'm talking about my vanilla socks (there was trouble), my Night Shift shawl progress and how the Milky Oolong Shawl got bigger. I've been doing some gardening and I'm excited about getting my piano tuned. Let's support each other and if you can, buy from dyers and designers who are facing cancelled events.

Sprouts and Milky Oolong
This week I have a new project, the Milky Oolong shawl. I finished the Kephart Prong Socks and am working on the Night Shift shawl. The microgreens that I started in my kitchen window are sprouted and ready for eating! Also, Bentley is feeling much better.

Starting the Night Shift
This week I've finished a dishcloth and my vacation socks. I've been working on two other pairs of socks, a plain vanilla pair as well as the Kephart Prong Socks by Pat Hensley. I've still got the Dust of Snow Wrap by Helen Stewart on my needles and I cast on the Night Shift by Andrea Mowry. I've done some indoor gardening and some shopping for supplies while hoping that the corona virus fades quickly.

Perfect Blanket for Reading
This week, I finished the Habitation Throw and the Love and Hearts Hat. I'm still working on two pairs of vanilla socks and I've pulled the Dust of Snow Wrap out of hibernation. While enjoying the Habitation Throw, I realized that it's perfect for keeping warm when I read with my children. That lead me to offer some ideas for reading with older children, including teenagers.

Sniffles and Vacation Socks
Welcome to episode 102, Sniffles and Vacation Socks. I'll tell you about my vacation knitting, my subscription box from Yarnable and some sad news on the farm.

Wow, I Came Back!
This week, I'm trying to get back in the podcasting groove. I finished the Bofur Scarf and the Ljus Shawl. I'm also working on a pair of socks and the Habitation Throw by Curious Handmade. I'm hoping for pullover sweater suggestions and thinking about making Christopher Bunny by Susan B. Anderson. It's going to be quite a year around the farm.

4th Annual Pre-SAFF Flyby
This is the annual mini episode just before I leave for the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair in Asheville, NC. I am looking forward to being there and seeing all of you! Also, I messed up the Ljus Shawl because I forgot how to read directions. Sigh.

This week, we're celebrating episode 100 of the Bede Sisters Podcast. Thank you so much for listening and marking this milestone with me. I have finished two pairs of socks and have another on the needles. There's also a new shawl cast on. Let's party and by party I mean eat snacks and talk about knitting.
