Episode 116: So Bad*ss I Cried

ESPOILER ALERT! Spoilers for Wonder Woman from 33:50 to 52:30! So much celebrating. So tired. In Adventures in Knitting, Maggie is still working on the Brownstone sweater for AdminMonkey and will be working on it for the foreseeable future. So as not to lose her mind, she's also working on Kai-Mei socks and she's FINALLY WEAVING! :D Karen, meanwhile, is still working on the Locke Street cardigan and will be also for the foreseeable future, though she did feel compelled to cast on socks in Cozy Knitter's "Come TOgether" colourway for a Blue Jays game. :D She's also been swatching a couple things but is resisting looking for patterns because she really needs to work on the sweater. Also, um, Karen finally has a full-time job? Which means she has a very predictable schedule, and can sign up for things like the TTC Knitalong! In Geek Squee, EEEEEE WONDER WOMAN EEEEEEE. We were not disappointed. In other things, we saw a cool art print of the Star Wars characters as if it was set in the M...

Episode 115: Just You Wait

ESPOILER ALERT! Spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 from 40:05 to 49:47! In Adventures in Knitting, we went to the Knitter's Frolic! And...Maggie actually bought more yarn than Karen did. This...this is weird. Maggie got some Brooklyn Tweed shelter for Jared Flood's Brownstone pattern, which she's making for Admin Monkey (who's doing much better, yay!) and of course some Blue Brick for some brioche knitting, the practice of which is...not going well. Karen got the Frolic-exclusive colourway from Indigodragonfly and the Frolic project bag. That's it. They also went to the Frolic Podcaster meetup! Thanks for organizing it, Ramona! (Also the word Karen mentions that doesn't translate into English might be her mis-remembering the first entry from this article? Or it could have been a different article with a slight mistranslation, as she's seen a couple in writing this) They also went to the Harry Potter-themed bar in Toronto, The Lockhart.

ESPOILER ALERT! Spoilers for the new live-action Beauty and the Beast from 48:25 to 55:11! Reminder: We'll be at the Toronto Knitters' Frolic on Sat. April 29th and there's going to be a podcast meetup! Hallway straight back from the entrance doors, 1pm. Come meet a whole bunch of podcasters! We'll have buttons! And if you're looking to have lunch around 11-11:30ish, we'll be in the same area. Also don't forget about the Frolic Social on Sunday! Details at the Toronto Knitters' Frolic website! Also, Karen will be in Ottawa the weekend after the Frolic, so if anyone there wants to get together some evening for a knit night, let her know! It's been a month, y'all. In Adventures in Knitting, Maggie has been working on socks from a sock blank and did her first Afterthought Heel, and has started another pair. She also needs to do some darning of some older socks, sadly. :( She's also planning some selfish family knitting, including a Brownstone sweater for AdminMonkey in Brooklyn Tweed Sh...

Special Episode 7: Commentary Time! Goldeneye

EAs it's National Sibling Day, here's a commentary from Karen and her brother, Steve! This time they watched an installment from another series that was big in their teenage years: the 1995 James Bond movie Goldeneye. Marvel at the ancient computers! Roll your eyes at the Bond franchise's lurching attempts to not be as sexist as past movies! Puzzle at the facial expressions that count as acting! While the episode was recorded for listeners to watch along, for those that can't/don't want to, you can still listen as a regular podcast, albeit with a few empty spaces we would usually have cut out. Otherwise, grab your VHS tapes and join us as we watch the adventures of the other Time Lord in popular media. ;) Want to share your thoughts on the movies/tv/science geekery we've discussed, or found something geeky to share?

Political talk from 00:02:55 to 00:23:48, in case you really don't want to hear it for whatever reason. You've been forewarned.

Our hosting is still there, it just won't accept files for unknown reasons. Send Admin Monkey some hugs! Adventures in Knitting! Maggie has finished Lilli Pilli and it has been sent to its recipient!

Episode 112: Is 2016 Over Yet?

ESPOILER ALERT! Spoilers for Doctor Strange from 1:15:00 to 1:21:00 and for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them from 1:23:40 to 1:34:45! So, politics happened, and is...kind of still happening as of this being posted? But we'll avoid talking about that, and just say: be Peggy Carter and Steve Rogers. In Adventures in Knitting, Maggie finished the Kai-Mei socks by Cookie A, as well as a Fly Away blanket by Tin Can Knits, for a coworker that's going on maternity leave. She's also loving her Tito hat from the Blue Brick, which is good as it provides the feeling accomplishment that her Celtic Myths shawl doesn't as it languishes in the WIP pile. She's also been working on Lilli Pilli since Rhinebeck! She's ALSO been working on the Milanese Lace Topper, because she hasn't done enough already. Karen, meanwhile, finished her Cockatoo Brae sweater in time for Rhinebeck, yaaaay! Her Lilli Pilli has not fared quite as well, however, as she cast on for it on the train, knit the 50 rows of s...

Episode 111: Waiting For the Other Shoe to Drop

EWe're back with a delayed episode and very brief show notes for the moment, because Karen's trying to get this up before she runs out the door to Rhinebeck. :D In Adventures in Knitting, Maggie has been knitting a bunch of things, including the Jasmine Scarf and the Professor Higgins Socks, and went to the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters Fair, while Karen is still working on Cockatoo Brae, which...has a slight problem. In Geek Squee, there's some cool planetary news (as well as some less-than-cool mansplaining going on), as well as a super geeky webseries that Karen's fallen for, and yay, new TV season is starting! In Cravings, Covets and Crushes we've found another place with some seriously cool geek merch, which we promise we'll link within a couple days. ;) We're going to be at Rhinebeck! Come see us at the Ravelry meetups from 12-1 on Saturday and Sunday and at the podcaster meetup at 1pm on Saturday!
