Ep 106 recorded 3/23/22

Segments this week include: Be A Helper Craft A Long, FOs, Wips, Out and About, and I’ve Got Sunshine.  A note on showlinks – all links to Ravelry are clearly labelled as such and all links for yarn are directly to the dyer’s website.

Be A Helper Craftalong has ended. 

Prizes!

FOs

Lots of crochet cleansing pads.  Not using a pattern, made up my own.

WIPs

Earthrise, I've started the last skein of yarn.

My second Lotus Mandala Vest is growing!  Most of it uses sparkly leftovers of Lion Brand Shawl in A Ball in the Prism colorway from the Priestess Coat I crocheted last year.  I finished all those scraps and started a full skein of Shawl In A Ball in the colorway Healing Teal

As You Wish MKAL by Mary Annarella of Lyrical Knits.  This is a Princess Bride themed mystery knitalong that will eventually result in a rectangular shawl.  I’m nearing the end of Clue 1!  This shawl is sooooo much fun to knit.

Winona by Brenda Castiel in handspun from Hipstrings.  This is an L-shaped shawl and I’ve reached the corner of the L which is worked like an applied-edging.

Spinning

I’ve spinning handspun yarn for the winner of my drawing for the Knitathon.  Cranky knees mean slow going, but I’m putting in about 15 minutes a day in 5-min segments. 

I’m also spinning some plain cotton once or twice a week, because I don’t have enough handspun to finish the As You Wish shawl.
