Fault of the knitter, Sheila can not follow directions apparantly. Topsfield Fair too expensive, not much there.

I really enjoyed your episode with Melissa and it was better on the couch as you looked more relaxed. What lovely gifts she bought you both, cant wait to see you cast on Wendy. I thought your sock blanket looked like pansies the last time you showed it to us too. I hope you can take some footage of the meetup under the big tree with the other podcasters when you go to Rhinebeck!

You look like you were having so much fun. Thank you for letting us join you.

Sheila, when you write up your hat pattern, please consider including Melissa and Wendy's different decreases.

What is the name of the pattern Melissa gave you- did not catch the name and no show notes ....yet-

Wendy said...

The pattern Melissa suggested can be found by copying the following into your browser:

The pattern is "Simple Ribbed Cow" and the beaded version is described in a project on Ravelry by a user called "knittimo."
