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.
