Episode 259: Textus Interruptus


This week, Wendy finally got her Webs order after it was mysteriously lost for 15 days. WIPs include No Purl Scarf, Basic Beanie, North Shore sweater and Bubble socks. FO was a Lined Beanie. Baubles and Bling this week was the missing Webs yarn! We drew a prize for the Ellsworth Tee contest and introduced the Riley Rose shawl, which we will be giving away in two weeks!!! Don't forget the Shawl Charity gift-along.

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.
