Yarn on the Go

Diana went wedding dress shopping in Steinbach. This involved getting lunch at Rhyme and Reason Cafe, tea at Sweet Life Tea, and dessert and vintage magazines to review at Prairie Pickers Cafe.

Diana got the “have you thought about selling your knitting” question at the grocery store and answered it with “I don’t finish things fast enough to make any kind of money at it.”

Fibre Flubs

Diana missed a yarn over on the second last row of chart 1 on her Wedding Shawl.

Wool Gathering

Donate time, money, or stuff to local missions/charities. They are doing good things and could really use a hand.

Jocelyn talks about Midknit Cravings.
