Episode 261: Interrupted Again!


This week's FOs include Lemongrass sweater and No Purl Scarf. WIPs include Sitka Spruce, Recoleta cardigan, Vanilla socks in Koigu and Endeavour socks. We didn't have any Baubles and Bling this week, but we did draw four winners for the Charity Shawl contest! We are continuing the contest for another month, and more winners will be drawn at that time! Big thanks to those who donated prizes!

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.

Gossip & Innuendo:

Last week, we reintroduced the newest pattern by Jennifer Lasonde:  Riley Rose Shawl.  You could win a copy of this pattern by telling us in the contest thread which colors you would choose for this beautiful textural and multi-colored pattern.  We will draw a pattern in the next episode

We drew 4 winners of prizes for the Shawl Charity KAL!  We will draw even more winners at the end of September!  So stay tuned.
