Episode 224: Outer Banks Style

This week Wendy is flying solo in the Outer Banks. WIPs include the Waking Tide sweater and Dalekanium socks. One PHD this week - a single Dalekanium sock is complete. Baubles and Bling include some tape measures for Wendy's notions pouches. Don't forget the Shawl KAL/CAL and the charity shawl drive!


August and September KAL/CAL:  Shawls!  This way, if you decide to knit a shawl for our charity effort, you can double dip!

Shout Outs:

Gossip & Innuendo:


Since it did so well last year, we are bringing back the shawl collection, which is organized by Lise Gill.  Lise has offered a wonderful prize for donating shawls of any shape, size or fiber.  The shawls will be distributed to people in need, including elderly patients, mourning family and women in shelters.  It's a great way to recycle shawls you may no longer use or that didn't fit your lifestyle once you knit them.  There is more info in the Charity thread in the Ravelry group on how to become eligible for the prize drawing by posting pictures of your donations.  Shawls should be sent directly to:

Webs Warehouse
ATTN: Lise Gill
6 Industrial Parkway
Easthampton, MA 01027

We collected so many shawls last year!  We hope you will join in giving someone who needs it a virtual hug in the form of a shawl.
