Episode 74 – Blocking Party

What’s in Our Cup

Jocelyn has Rhubarb Cream Soda tea from Davids Tea. Diana has Jura scotch.

Woolly Workings



Fibre Flubs

Diana dropped a stitch on her lace wedding shawl :O Also she can’t read her own notes and had to rip back her Exploration Station because she grabbed the wrong colour.

Jocelyn got one of the ladies at knit club to rip back a large portion of her Northern Plains Shawl (coming soon!) because she read her own pattern wrong and while it still looked good was not suitable for a pattern photo. Her cat attempted to help with the Triple Treat Shawl resulting in its rebirth as a Stormy Sky Shawl.

Yarn on the Go

The great blocking party occurred, and the Evenstar/Wedding Shawl was finished!

Sew Little Time

Jocelyn continued work on a summer dress for herself, and has been working on some market bags for upcoming craft markets.
