Episode 267: So Long and Thank For All the Love!

Our final episode is here. This week's WIPs include Crosshatch Socks, Fox Paws Shawl, Lillian Fay cardigan, a generic toe-upsock, and the Dream Baby blanket. FOs include Going Up socks, Granny Square washcloth, fingered mittens and a Yowza Weight It #4. Featured Baubles and Bling include Tunisian crochet hooks, a gradient set from Woolbearers and sock yarn from Backyard Fiber Works. We choose the winners of the School Colors KAL/CAL and the Double or Nothing eBook. Thank you to everyone who has watched and supported us! Knit With Heart.

Shout Outs:

We draw winners of the final KAL/CAL at the end of the show.  We also draw a winner of the Double or Nothing eBook.  Sheila has already contacted the winner of the Blue Moon Fiber Arts KAL/CAL.  Sheila is sending out all of the random membership list drawing yarn prizes and we plan to use up the remaining money in the podcast account to purchase pattern prizes.  Thank you SO much to those who have donated recently!  It was very sweet and it will definitely help defray the overseas shipping costs.  That being said, we do need to spend down the podcast account, so from this point on we no longer need donations.  We want to make sure that every donated prize and every penny of donated money goes back to the podcast audience!!
