Rate your Date:
   Wendy has one finished object, her Roly Poly Cat by Nina Shimizu with US G crochet hook.  You need to go to web site for pattern.  She used Worsted wieght Vanna's Choice.  Her modification, she did not do little white feet.  Super fun and Fast.  She loved it.

   Sheila is still planning on doing The Spring Forward Socks

Crushes and Heartbreaks:
   Wendy heartbreak is that her son got really burned from the sun the other day and he is very pale.
   Sheila shows off the inside the Kinder Egg and how it looks like a Minion from the movie Despicable Me.  She shows you Wendy Johnson's Socks from the Toe Up Book.
  We both talk about what type of socks we like better, toe-up or cuff down.

Baubles and Bling:
   We mention Holiday Yarns, we will show our sock yarn next week.
   Sheila has acquired some lovely yarn by Into the Whirled Bukavu sock yarn by Cris in the Farnsworth - Pooling Colorway.  Looking to do a slipped stich pattern for it.  I also bought my first Fiber from Touch of Twist in their Fancy Feet Sock Roving, lovely greens.
   Wendy also bought some sock yarn by Into the Whirled, but their Pakokku, colorway Muse-Pooling.  Wendy also was at the Yarn and Fiber booth that is from Derry NH and purchased some Ivy Brambles Romantica Lace in Night Sky colorway.  We were at the Holiday Yarns booth where she bought some lovely fiber from Gnomespun Yarn in the Rambouillet Comb Top from Brewergnome or Dan.  Wendy also purchased some Faux Angora 100% Nylon in the Bertie Botts colorway from Andrianne or Ady Bee of  Knittink, comic book inspired dyed yarns.   She also purchased a Spindle Bag by Jessilu Bags featuring Gnomes on the bag.   Later on she mentions a sweater pattern that she bought, Lillian Fay by Ellen Mason.

Gossip and Innuendo's:
   We talk about our Trip to Mass Sheep and Wool and a side trip to Webs Yarn shop.   We met Mellisa and Sean from the His and Hers podcast.  
    Jadee from the Twisted Strands podcast was up in MA and metions a local yarn store The WoolPak.  Next time she is up, hope to meet up with her.
   Knittings My Bag is organizing a Podcast Challange, should be intersting, Wendy and I want to play along.  We should all be working on the same technique but different patterns.  I believe the following are thinking about joining.  Mommyneedsyarn, Dramatic Knits, Yarnivore, Dragon fly Knits.
   We also mention Knit In Public Day on June 11th with Butterfly Yarns.
