Episode 114: Chef Don't Judge

Very little project action happening here. Sheila is still working on her wonderful Wallaby and Wendy is having trouble getting into the rhythm of her Crooked Walking Path Shawl. Baubles and Bling this week include fiber and some pottery from MA Sheep and Wool, as well as the awesome birthday presents from Sheila!

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.  It is STILL not finished.

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.
