Episode 241: The Pants Thief


This week's WIPs include Cache Cache cowl, Jeck socks, Indigo Frost poncho and generic toe up socks. FOs include Heath Socks in STR Cables of Wrath colorway. Featured baubles and bling include needle minders and stitch markers from Vintage Fairie, as well as Lavender lotion from Wolfe Farms. We announced the winner of Modern Lopi this week. Next week we will draw winners for the KAL/CALs.
