Episode 189: I'm Number Two

Quick episode this week. WIPs include a pair of Wassup Rufus socks in Kool-Aid dyed yarn and a pair of Rye socks in Patons wool. FO of the week is a pair of Lollipop Yarn socks in What a Maroon self-striping with a picot edge. Featured baubles and bling include several patterns we received (all of which look awesome). We draw winners from the membership list for sock yarn and a book and announce that we are giving away two more prizes the week after Christmas!!! We will not record next week due to the holiday.


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 - if your donation was received by 12/19 you will be entered 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 drew winners of the book Wrap Style and a skein of yarn.  When we return the week after Christmas, we will draw winners for a Ploverbird Bag and a skein of yarn!

We are not recording the week of Christmas.  Have a great holiday!
