Episode 228: Babble about Baa-ble

This week's WIPs include Sheila's modified Rye socks and Wendy's new design, Ribbon Candy socks. FOs include Wendy's finished Geek Socks in her custom Turtlepurl colorway "Superfriends." We announced that we are opening a special thread for anyone who wants to knit a Baa-ble Hat as a part of the Hat KAL/CAL, as we both plan on making one ourselves. Wendy also plans to knit a gradient cowl using a color work leaf design from a free sock pattern as a motif.
