Episode 30 – Christmas is Coming!

Hello everyone, sorry for the delay in the last episode, but we’re back!  This will be our last episode before the New Year and we hope to update you on our Downton Abbey contest in January!  So we’d like to thank you for sticking with us, we’ve had some major life issues preventing us from podcasting and posting but we hope to get back to normal soon.

Events

Katy and the other members of Agents of S.H.E.E.P. competed in this year’s Royal Winter Fair on November 15th and were placed 7th overall. Not the outcome we were expecting but we had so much fun this year and we were a crowd favourite.  Look out ladies, next year is going to be our year!

FOs and HOs

Val finished some dishcloths using Bernat Handicrafter cotton and started another 🙂

Katy finished two mug cozies for the IamSherlocked Swap on Instagram. She also finished spinning a braid of Spun Right Round in ‘Darkside of the Room’ and she finished the ‘Blue Lake Springs Shawlette’ by Irish Girlie Knits using Red Heart Stardust in Blue.

WIPs

Val is working on her rainbow afghan and some more dishcloths.

Katy is working on ‘Socks on a Plane’ by Laura Linneman using Desert Vista Dyeworks sock yarn in ‘Mint Cocoa Quilt’. She’s also crocheting some dishcloths as presents using Lily Sugar & Cream in a Christmas confetti colour. Also working on ‘The Bee Keeper’ from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.

Needs and Wants

All that Val and Katy need and want this episode is for everyone to have a happy Holiday season. Whatever holiday that you celebrate this December, we hope it’s full of love, laughter, family and friends ❤

You Had Me At Yarn!

Val went on and took a look at Gnome Acres and she saw that there was two doppleganger sets that she loved! One was Milk and Cookies and the other was Wabbit Season Duck Season !  Both of us want the both of the sets!

Katy found Sassy Santa by Knitted Wit on Etsy and also on Etsy she found Girl Talk by Nomadic Yarns!

Reading Watching & Listening

Katy is still reading The Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare.  Val has been reading a lot of Crimson Peak fanfiction!

Katy got to go and see two movies – Spectre, which she enjoyed, a LOT! and Mockingjay Part 2 which she enjoyed as well but there were some hard scenes for her to watch. She’s also been watching lots of WWE of course 😉  Val has been watching The Walking Dead and Season 3 of Hemlock Grove (on Netflix).  Val has also been watching a lot of curling, but not by her own choice!

Katy likes a few new songs – Focus by Ariana Grande and Can’t Feel My Face and Dark Times by The Weeknd (no it’s not a spelling mistake). She bought the whole CD on iTunes and it’s a bit racy so … adults only 😉  But Dark Times features Ed Sheeran, so she had to have it.  Val has been listening to Same Old Love by Selena Gomez, which has a really cool music video.  She also loooooves Adele’s Hello.  All the awards to Adele.
