Episode 153: Crappy Actresses

This week's FOs include Sheila's Clapotis and Wendy's Star Leaves Wedding Shawl. WIPs include Sheila's standard sock, the Annika Cowl and Wendy's Neverending Fuse Cardigan. Wendy finished spinning a braid of Fiber Optic Gradient this week and started a batt from Enchanted Knoll Farms. We draw the name of the Annika Cowl PDF file winner at the end of the show.


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