We bring you the usual project chat, including Sheila's ongoing Wonderful Wallaby sweater and Wendy's Vortex blanket and finished Chicken Viking Hat. Featured baubles and bling include Shawl Gems created by Jetgirl's mom! We talk about NH Sheep & Wool and the other upcoming events as well.
KAL/CAL: Baby/Child Theme. Post a picture of your finished items for babies or kids in the thread in our group between now and May 31. Rules and additional information are HERE.
On The Dance Card:
Sheila is working on:
Wonderful Wallaby by Carol A. Anderson in a toddler size. She is using a Knit Picks yarn, but is not certain which base it is.
Wendy is working on:
Vortex Throw by Lisa Gentry in Lion Brand Wool-Ease on a USH/5mm hook. Will be gifted to our friend who was injured in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Crooked Walking Shawl by Anne Hanson in Nightingale Fibers Martha base (Baby Alpaca/Silk) in the Grey Sky colorway. It is a sport weight, but I think it will work okay with this pattern. I am doing the medium shawl.
