SHOW NOTESShout Outs:This month's KAL/CAL is any project in your favorite Sports Team or School colors! Show your team/school loyalty! This KAL/CAL will run through December 31st. If you have a sports fan or school student, this would be the perfect opportunity to knit a Christmas gift!Sheila is also hosting a Blue Moon Fiber Arts KAL/CAL that will continue through December and includes any projects made from Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarn.On The Dance Card:Wendy is working on:Lillian Fay Cardigan by Ellen Mason in Dream in Color Classy in the Flamingo Pie colorwayFox Paws by Xandy Peters in 5 colors of Sundara Yarn from deep stash.Going Up socks in Knit Picks Felici sock in the Dark Side colorway.Sheila is working on:Rye socks by Tincanknits in BMFA STR in the Garden Daze colorway"Glitten" (half glove, half mitten) loosely based on the Knotty Gloves pattern by Julia Mueller.Rate Your Date:Sheila finished:Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth by Ruth Slate in kitchen cottonOne Rye sockWhirlwind Romance:NothingFuture Dates:Wendy will knit an Inspira Cowl by Graphica.Sheila will knit socks, a Scrappy Lengthwise Scarf by Zona Sherman and a cowl from Wollmeise scraps.  Her 2017 goal is to use up her scraps.Baubles & Bling:Sheila received a phlebotomist themed lanyard for her work ID from Wendy for Christmas (it came later than her other presents).Gossip & Innuendo:We drew a winner of the My Own Backyard pattern by Jennifer Lassonde! BOOK REVIEW:Double or Nothing: Reversible Knitting for the Adventurous by Alisdair Post-Quinn.  You can purchase a copy HERE on the Fallingblox Designs webpage.This book is definitely not for a new knitter unless you are extremely adventurous and willing to take on a challenge!  It is more suited to an experienced knitter or an adventurous intermediate knitter.We really liked a lot of features in this book.  First, it takes you through a series of double knitting projects where you can learn how to take double knitting to another level - double knitted lace, double knitted cables, double knitted colorwork and intarsia, etc.  Often there is a small sample project you can make to try out the new technique so you don't have to commit to a huge project.  That means you could learn the basics of the techniques in this book simply by making the swatch samples.  If you find you enjoy double knitting techniques, you can then move forward to one of the projects,  We also liked the detailed and nicely photographed tutorial pictures.  These are key any time you are learning a new technique and this book really does them well.  Likewise, all of the patterns were nicely photographed so you could really see the double knitting and how it differed on either side.  Finally, we liked that the author wove his own story about his knitting throughout the book.  Although the tone occasionally tended toward the bombastic in the author's story sections, they do connect the book with a personal narrative that makes for an enjoyable read.  All in all, this looks like an interesting challenge for people who want to do more with the double knitting technique and we would recommend it for those knitters.If you would like to win a copy of this book, enter the contest on our Ravelry page and tell us which pattern piques your interest!ALSO:We are still drawing prizes for random people on our Ravelry group membership list as we begin to wind down the podcast.  We will draw another batch of prizes in the next episode so stay tuned.Fiber EventsNone until 2017
