Episode 5 · SAFF Part II and Loose Ends
In this episode we review a project bag by the Bede Sisters, talk about our current projects, and discuss a Amanda's experimental cocktail. The last loose ends of SAFF are woven in, and we are getting ready for some holiday knitting.
Amanda's experiment cocktail:
- rye whiskey
- angostura bitters
- Rose's sweetened lime juice
- crushed ice
Fill rocks glass with ice, fill mostly with rye, add 2-3 dashes of bitters and top with a splash of lime juice. Stir and sip

The Yarn Harlot excerpt from "All Wound Up":
Things that non-knitters say to me and what I would like to say back (but never will because I am a good person)
Scene:Me, knitting. Non-knitter approaches and says, "Wow, are you knitting?"
What I Would Like To Say: Nope, doesn't it look like it though? Really, this is a careful illusion made possible through my many years of studying enchantment and magic, In reality, I'm just sitting around like everyone else, but I make it appear as though I'm knitting to create a feeling of coziness, make me look smart, and give me a way to meet people Hi!
What I Actually Said: Yes
