The ladies don't have a lot of projects this week since the last recording was only days earlier. Sheila shows her ongoing Wonderful Wallaby sweater, Wendy shows the Vortex blanket, Aquaphobia socks and Chicken Viking Hat. Wendy gives an update on her friend who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombings and rants about the conspiracy theorists on the internet. Featuring the April 2013 ITW club offering this week.
If you would like to donate to aid the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, please go to The One Fund.
