Episode 3 – Fiberista

28 Apr

There are no shownotes this week – the fiber I showed you is for the Frolic, there was no Grabby Hands, and the notebook and index card files can be purchased almost anywhere.  I’ll do better next week!

Episode 2 – 44 Pounder

22 Apr

This week, I share the news that I’ve been bursting about for two weeks now, and show the mother of all Grabby Hands.  There’s a tiny glitch several minutes in all you miss is that the person who introduced me to SW BFL is CJKopec of CJKopecCreations (last week’s Grabby Hands).  It’s just one of the reasons I adore her so.


“Sea Glass” sock yarn 75% SW Merino, 25% nylon, 462 yards.
