This week's WIPs include Indigo Frost poncho and Super Stretchy Baby Hat. FOs include a pair of cuff down vanilla socks and Wendy FINALLY finished her Jeck socks. Featured Baubles and Bling include notions from Stitched by Jessalu and a gradient set from Wonderland Yarns. We give lots of random technology advice in this episode.
