Drafts – WIPs 

Kaity is working on the second Thor sock, and she’s nearly done with the first Reykjavik Socks by Cookie A. She had to rip out the Calais shawl and start over, but she’s nearly back to where she realized she needed to rip it.

Kris is working on the increases for the waist shaping of her Lily Cardigan.

Slush Pile – Gift Knits

Kris pulled out what is probably her longest languishing FO, a square for a blanket for her son, knit in a nautical theme from Plymouth Encore worsted. The seventh square is the coral pattern. You can find examples of a lot of these squares at the Walker Treasury Project.

Apocrypha – Geekery
We went to Brock’s Tree Farm to get our Christmas tree this week.
We made Massaman Curry for the company Christmas party, and it was a big hit! Another postdoc brought karyotype cupcakes.
We mentioned two row counting apps for iOS devices, StitchMinder and KnitMinder.
Disney movies are now on Netflix.
Plant dyes have been used for everything from cancer treatment to battery cathodes. Colors, not just for yarn!
