Episode 242: Stupid Knitter Tricks


This week's WIPs include Jeck Socks, Cache Cache cowl, Indigo Frost poncho and Lined Beanie. FOs include Sheila's generic toe-up socks and one Jeck sock (finally!!). We draw a winner of the BMFA KAL/CAL and two winners of the WIP KAL/CAL!

Shout Outs:

Mar/Apr KAL/CAL will be to knit with variegated yarn!  Trying digging something out from deep stash!  We will draw two winners during the first episode in May.

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.  We will draw a new winner during the first episode in April.
