Episode 257: Wavy Janes


This week begins our annual prayer/comfort shawl drive! If you have new or gently used shawls, you can donate them to get a chance at winning prizes! WIPs this week include North Shore sweater, Bubble socks, Fishknit vanilla socks, and CBD Fudge Neckcessory shawl. FOs include one Bubble sock and No-Purl Monkey socks. No Baubles and Bling this week. We drew winners for the monthly BMFA KAL/CAL/SAL and the Yellow-themed KAL/CAL. We also drew the first winner of the Ellsworth Tee pattern by Carolyn Noyes. Two more winners will be drawn, so stay tuned.

Shout Outs:

There will be no KAL/CAL this month.  Instead, please consider knitting a shawl to donate to our friend Lise at Webs.  Or, check through your stash of handknits to see if you have a gently used shawl to donate.  Every donation allows you a chance to win prizes.  The shawl drive will run through the end of September,

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.
