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.
