Episode 162: The REAL Episode 162

This week's WIPs include the Mystik Spiral Sock and Star Leaves Shawl.  FOs include the Brush Creek Cowlette in handspun Fiber Optic gradient.  Future dates include the Tan House Brook shawl in Gypsy Creations gradient and handspun Loop gradient.  No featured baubles and bling this week, but Wendy shows how she puts together her notions pouches.


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

We are also hosting a Sock KAL/CAL.  You choose the pattern.  If you use yarn purchased at least 6 months ago, you can enter your sock in both contests!  A winner will be drawn at the end of June .
