Ask the Geeky Girls -
Jane (JanieB) from London asks:
Do you have any knitted Christmas decorations? Are you planning to make any knitted Christmas decorations this year?

I am currently using leftover sock yarn to make a mini mittens garland using the Smitten (a Holiday Garland). Previously I have knitted mini socks and made them up into festive bunting. Last year I knitted a Christmas wreath too.

We mention: Satsuma Street

You gals inspired me to pick up my floral practice embroidery project again! What Flosstube channels are your favorites to watch, especially ones that feature embroidery? Do you have any advice for novice threadies?

We mention: 2 Martini Stitcher | Javagirl Stitches | Just Keep Stitchin' | Priscilla & Chelsea (The Real Housewives of Cross Stitch) | Sew Grateful | Stitch ALL the Things | Stitching the High Notes

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Penny (Pennygale) from Kentucky asks:
This message is from my cat Voodoo. I told her I wouldn’t read it.
Voodoo wants to know if Pink Purl has any food-getting tricks. She wants Pinky to know that her male person sleeps with a mask and a machine which has a button on top of it…she says if you press this button at 3:00 in the morning, the male person will SURPRISINGLY wake up a bit startled, but get out of bed, and provide breakfast. The female person she has not yet managed to wake up early, no matter how many biscuits she makes, or yowls she yells, or feets stepped upon the person’s body. Human lady does not have one of these sleep aid machines. Can Pink provide any tips or maneuvers for a second breakfast?

WE NEED MORE QUESTIONS!!!!

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Hillary (CraftyTextileLady) from Canada asks:
I have a question for CC (since I’m going to go out on a limb and assume Dami is too busy with school to be attempting it): How are you doing with the Modern Ms Darcy reading challenge? I’m trying both it and your reading challenge for the first time this year. I have found it has caused me to pick up books that I otherwise wouldn’t read, some of which I’ve enjoyed and others not so much.

We mention: Lady Falcon Travelers (my 100 Acre Wood BuJo cover)
For the Love by Jen Hatmaker
Mindful Silenece by Phileena Heuertz
J.D. Robb's In Death Series
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich
The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich
Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich
The Care & Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls by Anissa Gray
Ghosted by Rosie Walsh
The Thief by Fuminori Nakamura
Transcription by Kate Atkinson
The Cat Who Could Read Backwards by Lilian Jackson Braun

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Denise (fuzziekit) from Michigan asks:
Dami: Thank you for giving me a love of musicals back. Right now I am having a hard time not picking up every single one of the musical cds I find. So far I have only picked up the Hadestown live show, at least I think that is what it is, out in the car and I am not leaving my seat to go check, and love it. If you were to pick only one other show to recommend picking up, what would it be? sighs Okay, I will give you an option of five. ;)

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Denise (fuzziekit) from Michigan asks:
C.C., Dami, Dr. Hubs: I am a super bibliophile. I love books, the feel, the smell, even the taste. I do read books on an ereader as well and listen but there is nothing compared to a paper paged book. So I am asking this question. If you could only recommend five books to someone, what would they be? (I am willing to give one of those slots to a series of books but I want you to push yourselves and really think about this.) Also, what are books you like to revisit? I revisit the Harry Potter Series often and am considering the Narnia Series again… I love, LOVE, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

We mention:
Lament for a Son by Nicholas Wolterstorff
The Accidental Anglican by Todd D. Hunter
Living Into Community by Christine D. Pohl
Practicing Christian Doctrine by Beth Felker Jones
The King Jesus Gospel by Scot McKnight
Oneself As Another by Paul Ricoeur
Rediscovering the Triune God by Stanley J. Grenz
Ricoeur and Theology by Dan R. Stiver
Theology After Ricoeur by Dan R. Stiver
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
Emma by Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
Jesus Feminist by Sarah Bessey
One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
A Discovery of Witches Series by Deborah Harkness

There is a Chatter Thread on Ravelry so we can encourage each other along the way.

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Denise (fuzziekit) from Michigan asks:
C.C. & Dami: You both like coffee and tea. That is very obvious. What is your preferred method for making either drink at home? I like a good pour over method or a french press. The only reason I don’t make more french press is because of the clean up…. I hate cleaning the french press out. But I know there are other methods out there. (having worked in a coffee roasters retail shop I do know a lot of them.) Do you prefer a cold brew or a hot brew? How do you take you coffee and tea? Black or with “additives” such as cream, sugar, honey, lemon? Of the current drinks out at cafes, what is your current favorite? Also what is your all time favorite at cafes? This doesn’t have to be at a big chain store either, one of my favorite drinks is at a local twenty four hour coffeehouse, the drink is called an Irish Carbomb and the café is called Bitter End. (C.C. I think I know yours but you might surprise me.)

Misc. -
~Winners Announced - The lovely Delissa McMillen (Delissa) of Momof3sillyboys on Etsy gave us 3 sets of stitch markers to give away to you. 3 prize winners each won 1 random set of stitch markers.
