Episode 155: Morning Drunk

This week's WIPs include the Seashell Shawl, an improvised handspun wrap, a pair of vanilla socks and a Trillian shawl. FOs include Sheila's Annika cowl and Wendy's Fuse Cardigan. Baubles and Blings this week are Patons sock yarn and the March Hello Yarn Fiber Club.


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.

We are also hosting a KAL of the Annika Cowl or the Chevron Chapeau.  The designer, Suzanne Morrison Gavreau, has generously offered a coupon code: everythingisawesome for 25% off the pattern price for the month of the knit along!

Also, check out the Mad Color Fiber Arts Mad Geek Tour Club offering:  The Princess Bride!  You can get yarn or fiber and a Stitched By Jessalu club edition bag.  I just read that Jess is offering a wedge or box bag option!  There is still time to sign up for the current theme and to check out the upcoming Geek Tour themes!
