Ask the Geeky Girls -
Katy (Kathryn-Anne) from Pennsylvania asks:
I am fascinated at how adept you both are at knitting and chatting at the same time without looking down at your project. I imagine that if you were to add chewing gum and riding a unicycle to the mix, you’d still not drop a stitch! How do you do it?

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Jorunn (FjordLord) from Norway asks:
Hi Geeky Girls! I was wondering if you have any thoughts on different knitting styles and how you wrap the yarn around when you knit. The way I learnt to knit as a child, is what I understand is called continental style knitting. This is where you hold the yarn with your left hand, over your left index finger, and use your right needle to “hook” the yarn and then pull it through. The only time I knit while wrapping yarn around using my right hand is when I do colour work. On the occasions where we can see you actually knitting on your podcast, it seems that you might be knitting the wrap-around-style, and that has always seemed to me to be a (sorry) slower way of doing it. Have you tried other styles of knitting, or have you any other thoughts on this? What do you think are the pros and cons of knitting this way or the other?

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Amy (abingham) from Oregon asks:
How did you decide what the best type of knitted garment is for your body? (top down raglan, seamed, etc.) Did you decide to knit a pattern solely based on a style you know will wear best on your body or was it trial and error by knitting items and deciding they weren’t a good fit for your body type?

March/April/May Sheepy Spring AL -
*Runs from 1-March through 31-May

*Details - any project you knit/crochet/weave/spin/stitch/sew that you can convince us relates to spring

*No WIPS - Your project must be begun no earlier than 1-March and finished no later than 31-May

*Each project that you knit/crochet/weave/spin must be at least 20yds/18.3m that you finish and post in the Ravelry FO Thread counts as 1 entry into the giveaways. If your project is not at least 20yds/18.3m, you need to group it in a single post with other projects that together total at least 20yds/18.3m. For stitching/sewing projects, we’ll leave it to your best judgment. If you wanted our official ruling, PM PM JavaPurl or Email us at geekygirlsknit@gmail.com

*Feel free to poly-dip in other ALs as long as it fits in with other rules (including the great podcaster craft together)
