Episode 151: Unintentionally Left Blank

Oops! Forgot the title for this one! This week's WIPs include Sheila's worsted weight socks and Wendy's Star Leaves shawl. Sheila has a half finished project in one of her worsted weight socks. Baubles and Bling include a Stitched by Jessalu bag. This week, Wendy finally spins after a long hiatus, and shows an Into The Whirled FO and Fiber Optic spinning in progress. We draw a winner for the Grime Guard contest.
