Episode 39 - June Gloom

In Episode 39,  June Gloom hits in a couple of ways. First we have an unusual June rain storm, bringing us more rain than we had in January of this year! Second, with all of the end-of-the-school year activities, birthdays, and events, neither of us have been able to focus on casting on a larger project. We are still knitting, just focusing on hats and shawls. We both are on the verge of some larger projects, but just haven't jumped in yet. At one point we mention hearing a door squeaking. Never fear, there aren't spooks haunting the Yarniac recording studio, just kids home for summer vacation opening doors veeery slowly. Welcome summer!

Episode 38 - Catching up on the FOs

After a month of special guests, the Yarniacs are flying solo again and catching up on all their finished objects. There is much stalking going on as both Gayle and Sharlene are looking to start new projects. It feels a bit like "school's out for the summer" around here as we discuss shawls, knit summer tops, and cardigan options for our empty needles.
