Episode 105 - When Cats Attack!

Ollie the Cat was CRAZY in this episode! Wendy and Sheila bring you their usual project chat, including Sheila's nearly completed Iris Mystery Shawlette and Wendy's Breakwater sweater. No FOs this week, unfortunately. Wendy shows her completed yarn spun from Highland Handmades fiber. Baubles and bling include a perfume tester from Dyeabolical Yarns and a spinning book by Anne Fields.

Just a cat FYI for Wendy. Thursday was the full moon and that is why your cats were nuts on Friday. It lasts for a few days at our house. Insane cats tearing around the house. LOL!!
