Episode 203: Not Really Selfish

This weeks FOs include Fixie Baby Hat and Christine's Stay Put Baby Bootie. WIPs include Hitofide, No Purl Monkeys and vanilla Patons sock. Bauble and Bling include more stripey Patons Kroy and a sweater's worth of Dyeabolical Worsted in the Polar Vortex color way. We draw winners for the monthly KAL/CAL and the Knittingsmybag contest. We also announce some exciting contests coming up soon!
