Episode 147: We Believe in Child Labor

This week's FO is Sheila's Spice Man Socks. Featured WIPs include the Fuse Cardigan, Duotone Cowl, and Windschief Hat. It's school vacation week, so there are a lot of interruptions! Wendy shows some of her latest cross stitch purchases and we remind everyone that the itunes feed is in transition right now.
Show Notes

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.

Wendy is working on:

Fuse by Veronik Avery in Reynolds Revue, red color way (this yarn is discontinued).
