Episode 9 Only The Lonely

Where Sheila is all alone and we announce the Winner of the "I Heart Wollmeise" contest.

Show Notes:
On The Dance Card:
   Sheila is still working on Knit Your Own Dog, Pug with Knit Picks Bare Esential on US 5 / 3.75 by Joanna Osburne and Sally Muir.  Her Mountain Ash with Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK on US 6 / 4mm by Kate Gagnon Osburn.  Sheila also had a Preemie Hat with left over sock yarn that was dyed by her son with Kool-Aid on US 1.5 / 2.5 mm by Karen Everitt.

Rate Your Date:
   Sheila finshed Preemie hat with Cherry Tree Hill Supersock colorway Sugar Maple on US 1.5 / 2.5 mm by Karen Everitt.   This was a very easy and quick pattern, she did a rolled brim instead of ribbing.  Sheila also finished a Ballband Dishcloth with Sugar and Cream scrap cotton on US 8 / 5 mm by Pisgah Yarn or Mason Dixon Knitting.  She loves this pattern, it is great for scraps and the colors combinations are endless.
Sheila did another dishcloth, Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth using Sugar and Cream scraps as well on US 8 / 5 mm by Ruth From Big Springs TX.  This a simple diagonal pattern also great for scraps.  Sheila finished a third dishcloth, Apple Cloth with some cotton blend yarn from Michaels on US 8 / 5 mm by Rhonda White.  Great patter, all cloths patterns are free on Ravelry.

Future Dates:
   Sheila keeps saying she wants to knit socks.  Who knows.

Crushes and Heartbreaks:
  Sheila  misses Wendy and is very glad that this video worked.

Baubles and Bling:
   Sheila received her Monster Swap from the Rebecca Danger Board on Ravelry.  Allison, psylocke26 on Ravlery was my partner and sent me a Hugo the Couch Monster.  Penny or Penelope was my quest this week not much of a talker....  Was sent some lovely yarn and stitch markers.  The yarn is Avery Allison Yarns, their Premium Multi-colored Hand Painted fingering yarn.
