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?
