- Greg is also knitting dishcloths. He uses the “Gramma’s Dishcloth (Grandmother’s 2nd Favorite)” pattern.
- Pam worked on a pair of socks for Scott using Paton’s Kroy. She is loosely following the Vanilla Latte pattern by Virginia Rose-Jeanes with a Fish Lips Kiss Heel by Patty-Joy White. Pam used a Turkish cast on.
- Pam worked on the Tunisian crochet Loveland Lite by Toni Lipsey. She is using Studio Sox from The Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For. She mentioned a tutorial to change color in Tunisian Crochet.

- Pam mentioned a knitted bunny tutorial.
- We shared the news article titled: I knitted my own wedding dress for $290 and documented the 200-hour process on YouTube to debunk the stereotypes about my craft. You can find her Youtube video here. Greg talked about knitting about a dozen stitches into @DanielleLanois Danie’s wedding dress a few years ago. Check out the pictures below to see me knitting on the dress, and check out Danie’s podcast episode from five years ago where she talked about it.

- Greg really loves the food at Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack when he goes to SAFF.
- Pam mentioned her Thai Peanut Chicken recipe that is so yummy…
1/4 cup peanut butter
3 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 minced garlic cloves
2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
2 tablespoons ground ginger
2 tablespoons brown sugar
6 tablespoons lemon juice
5 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons peanut oil (Pam – I leave this out)
1 can Coconut milk (shake well)
1 1/2 pounds chicken, boneless, skinless (add after sauce is made)
Mix all ingredients together (except chicken). Cut up chicken in bite size pieces and place in saucepan. Add sauce to pan and heat simmer until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serve with rice and veggies–we usually just put it in bowls and mix everything together. YUM!!
