Another fabulous show ladies! I am glad I dont live too close to Wendy or otherwise I would be buying yarn all the time - although it is all gorgeous. I am sure you can finish your Rhinebeck sweater Wendy. Sheila your vest and the little hat turned out so cute, and your shawl is beautiful. Have a great week!

Sheila said...

Enid, thank you for you comments, why can't you vote? All can vote if you are on Ravelry.

Sue, she is a very big enabler when it comes to yarn. I think Wendy will finish, she is almost done. My vest and hat will go to a nice home, once I get off my butt and mail it.
