On The Dance Card:

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 on US3/3.25mm needles.  It is a sport weight, but I think it will work okay with this pattern.  I am doing the medium shawl.

Gooseberry Hat by Suvi Simola in Bernat Softee Baby on US4/3.5mm needles.

Rate Your Date:

Baby Rubber Duck Booties by Christine Grant (Madmonkeyknits) in Bernat Softee Baby on US4/3.5mm needles.  Bill out of Kauni yarn scraps, eyes out of embroidery floss.
