Jasmin has put one more row on her Ashburn, in Lollipop Yarn Flibertigibbet Sock, for the #BigBadBergalong, and we have one kit to give as a prize. She has moved her shawl to ChiaoGoo Red Lace needles and these are not slick enough either.
Gigi cast on the Sidewalk sweater out of Venizia Bulky, and got two skeins knit up.
Jasmin has a plan for the Gone Astray cardigan for Genevieve, as to where the sheepdogs are going to be. Gigi suggests lifelines, and Jasmin is so glad she has a giant ball of Aunt Lydia's cotton yarn. We announce that the Grinch-along will start on December 1st. We will have prizes. Also, Joanne's has "Grinchmas" fabric.
Jasmin has also made progress on the Anna cardigan, Gigi worked some more on the Vanilla socks out of Regia. She has cast on a preemie hat and finished the Barley baby hat, by Tin Can Knits.

Jasmin has started the R&R Hoodie for Genevieve out of Knitted Wit Love is Love.
