Episode 29 – Up We Go!



Hello everyone, welcome back and thanks for listening!!

We want to send a shout out to our friend Wendy, who is Sillyfru of the Sassypants Knitter Podcast whose kitty crossed over the rainbow. We know you loved her very much and we’re very sorry for your loss. ❤


We hope everyone has a safe fun and SpoooOOoooOOoooky Halloween! 😉

The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair – November 6-15, 2015, Toronto, Ontario – Agents of Sheep will be there on November 15, 2015 to compete in the Sheep to Shawl Competition again this year, and Katy plans to throw her hat in for the Drop Spindle Competition as well.


Artistic Autumnal KAL/CAL – September 1 – November 31, 2015 – hosted by the Geeky Girls Knit Podcast. Anything you can tie to Autumn somehow (knitting, crochet, spinning) and if you can’t think of anything, you made it in the autumn. You can find the full details at the Geeky Girls Knit Ravelry group.

FOs and HOs

Well, we didn’t finish a whole heck of a lot… but it’s been busy. Katy put her Sherlock Cross stitch into a small hoop and finished it off with a pretty ribbon for the Iamsherlocked swap on Instagram.


Val is working on a corner-to-corner knit dishcloth in Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in Denim Blues. She’s also picked up the Broadripple socks using Malabrigo sock in ‘Archangel’.

Katy cast on a shawl for one of the ladies who is retiring from the bank. She’s making the “Blue Lake Springs Shawlette” by Irishgirlieknits (which Katy won in an Instagram contest) in Red Heart Stardust in the colourway ‘Blue’. She is also still working on a mug cozy that looks like John’s sweater, also for her Sherlock craft swap.




Katy is reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare and she is also reading Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.

Val is reading a really raunchy romance novel about angels and demons, which isn’t very good (the book, not the topic!)

Katy watched Pitch Perfect and loved it!!! She’s also making her way through Season 2 of Homeland and watching the current season of Downton Abbey online.

Val is also watching the current season of Downton as well as the current season of The Walking Dead

Katy is listening to the radio and a few songs popped out at her: Stitches by Shawn Mendez, Bulletproof by La Roux (from Pitch Perfect) and her Jam right now is 11:11 by the Arkells 🙂

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!  Downton Abbey Season 6 has started in the UK on September 20th and will be starting in Canada and the US in January.  Last year we held a very fun and successful Downton Trivia contest and we’re in the works for something big for this year! So keep  listening and we’ll have more on that in the coming episodes!!
