Episode 163: New Job Joy

This week's WIPs include the Star Leaves Shawl, Tan House Brook Shawl and Mystik Spiral Sock. FOs include the Tan House Brook shawl in Loop Bullseye Batt handspun and the blocked version of the Brush Creek Cowlette in Fiber Optic gradient handspun. Baubles and Bling featured were the Hello Yarn May club offering and a new cross stitch project.


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 .
