I read a note from Susan B Anderson and one from Sabine. Sabine says that unusual hats are fashionable in Germany.
The Blethering Room
Bronwyn needs help with her Classic Lines Cardigan.by Alison Backus. She has 9" of the body finished (bottom up) and found that she twisted the join. It is a full twist, not a moebius (half). The cardigan will be steeked. Bronwyn wants to finish the sweater as is and then steek. I am skeptical that this will work. The sweater is also too big for her so I was going to tell her to be safe and frog it. She did a paper mock-up and steeked the sample. It worked. Has anyone tried this? Opinions?
(Next time Charr and Bronwyn come I will remember to take photos!)

Random Friend Deletions on Ravelry
Over the past few months I have been friended by people who I was sure were already in my friends. Recently a person called this to my attention because she felt she had been deleted intentionally. I have never deleted anyone from my friends list and do not intend to do so. I have reported the bug to Casey on Ravelry. If you have had similar experiences please let Casey know on the For The Love of Ravelry Board in the thread I started. The challenge of fixing this is that it is random and people don't usually notice exactly when it happens. Just know I have not unfriended anyone and if you have dropped off my list, please friend me again. Thanks!
I will try to list the specifics as best I can. If we mentioned something that is not in the show notes, please feel free to contact me for more information.
Turkish Bed Socks by Churchmouse Yarn and Teas. Charr and I started these as our Sock Summitt KAL (just the two of us). I like the end result that I have seen on various project pages but was not keen on the one I finished. The construction method seems fiddly to me. I would rather knit a short sock. These do look very cute with clogs!
Charr and I visited Twisted in Portland. It is a lovely yarn shop and we were impressed by the friendly staff. They feature many of the local independent dyers.
Charr and I met Ms. Gusset and volunteered to help in her booth at The Marketplace. We had fun! Charr's And So Are You Shawl was a big hit with people passing by the booth.
Knitter's Brewing Company Bridge of Roses Sock Kit. Fundraiser for Susan G. Komen. Charr and I each bought a kit and another one for Bronwyn.
Other products we mentioned Huckleberry Knits. Silk Handkerchief Demonstration.
