Rate Your Date:
Sheila has finished the Flutter-by Socks by Shannon Robalino on US 1 1/2 / 2.25 mm with Serendipitous Ewe Fingering Fate sock yarn. Loved the pattern and the yarn. Came out great.
Wendy finished To Eyre by Carol Sunday in Arauncania Nature Wool in a nice red on US 7 / 4.5 mm needles. There are several versions of the shawl in the pattern and she is doing version 2. Modified to make the back larger or longer.
Future Dates:
Sheila and Wendy are making their plans for the Podcasters Challange that is has been organized by Lois of Knittngsmybag. We show you are yarn choices, go to the thread here, and vote. Next week we will show you are pattern.
Sheila is also planning on a Monster for the Danger Crafts group in Ravlery. She also wants to make a hat to match the sweater.
Crushes and Heartbreaks:
We are still trying to push the Denver Oyster Make-A-Wish charity that LynnZimm from Knitting Triathlete blog is doing. She has raised over 5k and is able to grant a wish. Go check out her blog it is for a great cause. Sheila donated a skein of Wollmeise in the Aquarius colorway and Wendy donated a pattern up to $10 from Ravelry. Update, Lynn has finished and was able to raise over $7,000. Enough to help grant two wishes. Way to go Lynn.
Baubles and Blings:
Wendy has nothing.
Sheila Suprises Wendy with a T-shirt, that goes along with her cartoons from last week. She also shows off a basket that she got from her brothers yard sale.
