On The Dance Card:
Sheila is working on the Irving the Ice Box Monster from Rebecca Danger from the Big Book of Knitted Monsters. She is using Knit Picks Comfy in worsted on US 3 / 3.25 mm. Almost done and modified to look like Frankenstein (sort of.) Also on the needles is Pembroke Vest by Kirsten Kapur in Dream in Color worsted in the Blue Lagoon colorway on US 5 / 3.75 mm and US 7 / 4.5 mm with a few mods. Shetland Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark from the Wrap Style book in Cascade Eco + in the Shire colorway or Forest Green on US 10 / 6mm. Last but certainly not least is All Hands on Deck, Top Down mittens by Rachael of Dyebolical Yarns in Cascade 220 baby blue on US 5 / 3.75.
Wendy has Gawain by Alison Green in Dream in Color Classy in the Dusky Aurora on US 8 / 5 mm needles, no love this week. Also Celtic Cable by Vanessa Lewis in Vintage Maine Maid Blueberry Tweed on US 9 / 5.5 mm. Her addiction has been the Flower to Hexagon Blanket by Jessie Rayot using just two colors per hexagon, using Knitting Goddess sock blanket skeins.

Crushes and Heartbreaks:
Wendy has a heartbreak, her curtain project has stalled due to rusty water in the iron and her sewing machine broke. She would love suggestions on a machine under $200 that is reliable.
Sheila wants to put a great big shout out to Lois of Knitting's My Bag for all that she has done in the Plurk Podcaster's Challenge. She has put her heart and soul into this and does not deserve criticism. Sheila also has been loving nail art videos on YouTube.
