Episode 97: Nobody Puts Shipwreck in the Corner

Sheila is back! Today we feature Sheila's finished vanilla toe up sock out of BMFA, and the continued progress on Wendy's Shipwreck Shawl. Wendy shows her baubles and bling from Spa including a Jessalu bag and an Enchanted Knoll Farms batt. We draw winners for the Kerrie KAL and the Lacuna giveaway at the end. Bonus Spa slideshow at the credits.


On The Dance Card:

Sheila is working on a pair of generic toe-up socks for her son.

Wendy is working on:

Little Batty (new design by Wendy) in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Lightweight, Rook-y color way, US6/4mm needle.
Aquaphobia Socks by Crystal Flanagan (free on Rav) in Into The Whirled sock, Muse colorway, US2/2.75mm needles.

Shipwreck Shawl by Knitting Harpy (free from Knitty). Spirit Trail Fiberworks Clotho lace in the Ancient Stones color way, 8/0 Miyuki Glass seed beads in Lime Lined Crystal.

Voodoo You Love Me Doll by Susan Claudino ($5 on Rav).  Wendy is reverse engineering it to save money, but you shouldn't judge the original pattern by Wendy's home-brewed version!  The original is very cute.

Lacuna by Angeleah McGarrah ($5 on Rav) in Spinning Fates Shiva Sock in the Hyacinth Bucket colorway commissioned by Lois from Knittingsmybag as a Christmas present to Wendy.

Rate Your Date:

Sheila finished a pair of generic Toe-Up socks in Blue Moon Fiber Arts medium weight in a Rare Gem colorway gifted by Diane from the Knitabulls Podcast.

Wendy has no dates to rate.

Whirlwind Romance:

Wendy is STILL spinning:

Dyeabolical Yarns Portuguese Merino in the Flower Shop Inferno color way.

Future Dates:

Sheila will knit some kind of garter stitch shawl, possibly Lacuna by Angeleah McGarrah ($5 on Rav).

Wendy will knit another In The Pink by Izzy Knits (free on Ravelry).
