Sheila gets her phlebotomy certificate! This week's WIPs include Sheila's Spice Man socks, and Wendy's improvised cashmere cowl, Knotty gloves, Hiro sweater and Semele shawl. Wendy brought back an old FO with its button finally sewed on, the Spiral Cowl. Baubles and bling include Tess Yarn and Into the Whirled Yarn, bought at Rhinebeck on Sunday.
