Episode 175: The Show With No Name

Once again, Wendy forgot to name the show on the title page. Oops. This week's WIPs include a generic toe-up sock, fish hat and a cotton baby blanket. FOs include a Lalylala Rita the Rabbit and a Voodoo You Love Me doll. Baubles and bling includes a fabulous prize donation from designer Angeleah McGarrah and a new bag from Knittingsmybag. We closed the Shawl Charity KAL this week and will draw those prizes and all the other contests next week so we have enough time.


KAL/CAL:  We will draw prizes for the Stash Busting KAL/CAL for the month of August next week.

We will open a September Stash Busters thread.  Post a pic of your finished project made from yarn purchased at least 6 months ago in the September Stash Busters Thread and get that stash under control!  A winner will be drawn at the end of the month.

We closed the Donate a Shawl Charity KAL/CAL. We will announce the prize winners next week!

We will be closing and drawing for the Knits that Breathe and Buried in Stash calendars next week, too!!!

Big shout out and thanks to designer (and friend) Angelea McGarrah for an amazing prize donation.
