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.
KAL/CAL: We are hosting a Stash Busting KAL/CAL for the month of March! Post a pic of your finished project made from yarn purchased at least 6 months ago in the March Stash Busters Thread and get that stash under control! A winner will be drawn at the end of the month.
