Episode 256: Hung-Fused!


This week's WIPs include Jedi the Giraffe, Bubble socks, No Purl Monkey socks, vanilla toe-up socks, and CBD Neckcessory. FOs include the not really Extempore shawl, Indigo Frost poncho, Flutterby socks and one monkey sock. Featured Baubles and Bling include Fibernymph Dyeworks and Knitpicks yarn. We drew a winner of the Knit Your Skirt contest and announce a new pattern designed by Carolyn Noyes with three chances to win!

Shout Outs:

The KAL/CAL is based on YELLOW!  Do any project with at least 50% yellow yarn.  We will draw a winner next week.
