Episode 186: Mom, Your Sweater's On Backwards

This week my cohost is Thing2! WIPs include the Oxford Hooded Cowl and the Spring Cable socks knit from a frogged 2 year old project. My PHD is one sock. Featured baubles and bling are the new Knitter's Pride Platina cables and Della Q interchangeable needle pouch that I purchased from Hub Mills. We draw the winners of the Lake Effect and Lake Avenue patterns at the end of the show.


KAL/CAL:  We opened a November Stash Busters thread.  Post a pic of your finished project made from yarn purchased at least 6 months ago in the thread and get that stash under control!  A winner will be drawn at the end of November.  Please note that we will be skipping the December KAL and starting with new themed KALs in January 2015.

On The Dance Card:

Wendy is working on:

Oxford Hooded Cable in Lakes Yarn & Fiber Hayden DK in three colorways.

Sheila is working on:

An improvised felted purse in scrap worsted weight (which she had to restart because some of the yarn was superwash).
