This week's episode is sponsored by Two Grey Dogs Designs! WIPs include the Fuse cardigan, Duotone cowl, modified sockhead hat and felted clogs. FOs include Wendy's blocked Brickless and Sheila's Windschief hat. Featured baubles and bling include gorgeous sparkly lace yarn from Enchanted Knoll Farms. Wendy shows continuing progress on her cross stitch project and we discuss the details of the latest contest where you could win a free item of your choice from Two Grey Dogs!
KAL/CAL: We are hosting a Stash Busting KAL/CAL for the month of February! Post a pic of your finished project made from yarn purchased at least 6 months ago in the February Stash Busters Thread and get that stash under control! A winner will be drawn at the end of the month.
