Episode 240: Looking Bad on Sunday Morning


We had some minor technical difficulties with the sound this week, so do not be alarmed if the sound cuts out briefly a few times in the middle of this episode. This week's WIPs include Cache Cache Cowl, Jeck Socks, Indigo Frost poncho and Heath socks. FOs include one Heath Sock. No featured Baubles and Bling this week, but Sheila purchased a book which she will show next time.

Shout Outs:

Jan/Feb KAL/CAL will be to finish works in progress!  Get those old projects off the needles and start the new year off right.

Sheila is also hosting a Blue Moon Fiber Arts KAL/CAL that will continue throughout the year and includes any projects made from Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarn.

Don't forget the contest to win Modern Lopi by Lars Rains this week.  You can also purchase a copy of this book in PDF form on Ravelry or from Amazon.

To put it plainly, the general population who require awful credit auto advances are the individuals who have awful credit, yet there's a whole other world to it than that. There can be a wide range of reasons why somebody's credit has been harmed. Numerous individuals think just awful individuals have terrible credit, yet that essentially isn't valid! One who's bad looking?
