Episode 141: Little Rubber Chicken

This week, Sheila shows her Purl Soho Cowl in progress, along with her Clapotis. Wendy shows her Brickless shawl and Fuse sweater. FOs include the Mushroom "project" bag too small to hold a project and a knitted gnome, both Christmas presents. We draw the winners of the Selfish KAL/CAL for November and December and announce the upcoming book reviews/pattern giveaways and our new recording schedule. Show Notes
