You read that right. One fine and shining July day we sat ourselves down on Allison’s front porch to snap beans from the garden and make a podcast for the blog.
We’re tentatively planning on podcasting quarterly. [UPDATE: Yeah, we are SO doing this more than four times a year. We had too much fun and already have too many ideas!] Listen to it here or download and subscribe via iTunes and comment to let us know what you think!
Show notes are below, and in case you’re wondering, the podcast opens and closes with an excerpt from “Peach Pie” from Allison’s second CD, Songs From the Garden.
What we’ve been knitting…
Shannan’s knitting a Hitchhiker shawlette using Dream in Color Everlasting Sock in Surf (corrected from podcast), a Splitstone vest using Second Time Cotton in Linen, a Starshower cowl using Malabrigo Sock in Velvet Grapes, and two Swirl hats using Malabrigo Sock in Light of Love.
Allison’s knitting a Chevron Baby Blanket using Cascade Avalon in White, Pirate Black, Mellow Yellow, Sandshell, Ecru, Blue Radiance, and Silver, and A Shawl for Emma using Juniper Moon Farm Findley in Byzantine.
What we’ve been drinking…
Shannan’s been drinking High West Rendezvous Rye and longing for A Midwinter Night’s Dram (Rendezvous Rye finished in a port cask). She also recommended OYO Michelone’s Reserve and Bastille 1789 French Whiskey.
Allison’s been inventing cocktails using her homemade shrubs and Jefferson’s Reserve. She also recomended Bunnahabhain 12yo.
Both Shannan and Allison recommended Amrut Fusion Single Malt Whisky and Woodford Reserve.
