Episode 227: The Boringest Show That Ever Boringed

This week, Wendy and Sheila are both knitting socks out of the same yarn, and that's all they have on the needles. Lots of FOs and PHDs, though, including the Waking Tide Sweater, two pairs of socks and two sock PHDs. We also have lots of Baubles and Bling from our weekend at Rhinebeck, including Miss Babs, White Birch Yarn, Fiber Optic Yarn and Into The Whirled Yarn. We also announce a new pattern contest!


October and November KAL/CAL:  Hats.  Let's all get ready for winter!


The lovely Jennifer Lassonde of the Down Cellar Podcast is sponsoring a give-away of her newest pattern, View From The Charles!  Just tell us which yarns you would use to knit this lovely shawl, which comes in a DK and Fingering version!  A winner will be drawn in Episode 229.
