Episode 3 - Not Winning

The usual project chat, along with a sad story about the Yarn Crawl prize that fizzled out. Featured discussion of crochet projects and amigurumi.

Sorry for the delay, but here they are.

Show Notes:

What is on the Dance Card:
    Sheila knitting, Pinkerton Shawl by Susan Dittrich from Interweave Knits Spring 2011, Claudia Hat by M J Kim found on Ravelry for free, and some secret knitting she will show later from Laura Linneman from The Knit Girllls.
     Wendy is knitting on Fagus Shawl by Ann Lundblad.

Rate Your Date:
    Sheila has Zero....
    Wendy  finished her Voodoo Doll based on the Valentine Bears from Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet, and her Zinnia Dahlia hat by Petra Hoy.

Future Dates:
  Sheila just wants to finish what is on her needles.
  Wendy wants to knit the Traveling Sweater by A. Karen Alfke, and something secret for Sheila.

Crushes and Heartbreaks:
   Sheila is crushing on socks right now and Miss Babs sport weight yarn.
   Wendy has no crushes, but a really big Heartbreak regarding her "prize" from our recent Yarn Crawl.

Baubles and Bling:
    Sheila again has Zero.
    Wendy has nothing due to her Heartbreak.

Gossip and Innuendo:
   Our gossip for the week is Crochet.  Some of Wendy's favorite Crochet projects were her Little Acorn Project bag by Brigitte Read, free on Ravelry, and her Strawberry Project bag that she modified with from the same pattern.
   Wendy also discussed her plans for her trip to Germany and the Wollmeise Store on the weekend of May 13th or 14th.  Wendy is hoping that she can take a video of the shop to show all of you what it looks like.  She is also hoping to speak with a Local Yarn Store in Germany about getting some Addi Turbo Clicks.
  Sheila would like to star Crocheting more, possible a large Granny Square Blanket.
