Show Notes:

On The Dance Card:

Rate Your Date:
Sheila finished her Cause Hat by Kyle Kunnecke in Cascade 220 in cream and a grass green on US 7 . 4.5m.  Wonderfully written pattern.  I did modify the decrease for the hat.  She also finished the Maile Sweater by Nikki Van  De Car on US 6 / 4 mm and US 7 / 4.5 mm in a myster worsted weight.
Wendy has nothing.

Sheila is hoping ot finish the baby hat, the test knit hat, start a monster for a swap, start the podcaster challange project and hopefully start my Shetland Shawl and Heath Socks.
Wendy is hoping to cast on for the Podcaster Challange pattern.

Thanks Enid and, ewesmama, I feel like we would be friends with so many of our viewers if we could meet up. I love how being on Rav and doing the podcast links us up with our "invisible friends" from the internet!
