Pink Purl: What is your favorite treat? Seriously, I know it is hard to choose but there has to be one that you dive over all the rest for. My boys totally go for ferritone over everything else. I wish they would like emu oil or salmon oil but nope. Also what is your favorite place to watch the outside? And what is your favorite thing to watch outside?

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.

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Denise (fuzziekit) from Michigan asks:
C.C.: I know you have said, or at least I remember in some reality possibly only mine, that you are not much of a cook, or not a fan of cooking. Has that changed at all? Who does most of the cooking in your household? What are some of the favorite recipes that are made in your kitchen? Is there a preferred cookbook or cooking tool that you use?

Misc. -
~Reminder - The lovely Delissa McMillen (Delissa) of Momof3sillyboys on Etsy gave us 3 sets of stitch markers to give away to you. 3 prize winners will each win 1 random set of stitch markers.
To enter: Go to Delissa’s shop & in the giveaway thread in our Ravelry group, tell us which set of stitch markers are your favourite. We’ll keep the giveaway open until we record Episode 356 next week.

Show Notes:

Intro -
~Ravelry has taken action to make their site safer & more inclusive. No matter your political leaning or your opinions on the action, we will not allow our podcast & the community surrounding it to be a place where intolerance, hatred, & white supremacy are allowed to thrive. We acknowledge that our podcast is known to be "politically neutral," but we realise that others do not have the privilege to separate the personal from the political. We do believe that the personal is political. We will not be actively discussing politics on our podcast, but crafting & it's community is our personal so we need to make our feelings clear. Thank you to Ravelry for making this choice & thank you to our community for supporting us! Please treat others with respect & love!

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Amy (abingham) from California asks:
As you listen to other podcasters (knitting podcasts, reading podcast, other activity related podcasts) do you compare yourself to others? Does hearing what others are doing or planning, does that make you evaluate or reevaluate your progress, plans, things you are doing? I find myself doing that and then have to remind myself that I am not in a competition with anyone else and to compare myself only to my past self. Thoughts?

Ask the Geeky Girls -
Suzanne (nittinmama3) from Connecticut asks:
I seem to be having trouble lately deciding what to knit. I am a pretty monogamous knitter most of the time. And I have a stash that I’d like to use up if possible. How do you decide what you are going to knit? Do you pick several projects out and make kits with the yarn or just decide based on what is shiny and new on ravelry? Can’t wait to hear your replies.
