Episode 188: Totally Exhausted

This week's WIPs include vanilla socks and Rye socks. FOs include the Oxford Hooded Cowl, Kid at Any Age hat and Spring Cable socks. Featured Baubles and Bling include a personalized Christmas ornament and Lollipop yarn in the What a Maroon colorway. We draw winners of the Diamond Cut mitt patterns and the Scrappy Christmas Baubles ornament pattern.


KAL/CAL:  We will be skipping the December KAL and starting with new themed KALs in January 2015.  Instead we are doing a month of Holiday Giving, and kicking it off by drawing the winners of two new pattern giveaways!  Don't forget to donate to Hope for Kids to enter in a drawing for a Stitched by Jessalu limited edition Webs bag.  Also, if you gift a copy of the Sudice pattern by MK Nance between now and 1/6/15, she will gift a copy to you as a thanks!

We will be giving away the book Wrap Style and a skein of yarn to two lucky Rav group members next week during the Month of Holiday Giving.  We will draw names from the member list and announce them in Episode 188!

Big thanks to Jane for the donation!  We will use it for postage!
