This week we finally get to catch up with each other! 

I share several works in progress (including a new pair of socks and a baby sweater), some spinning and future spinning projects, a few purchases I made over the last month, and a reminder that the Spinzilla signups are coming up at the beginning of September.

I'm making a second Storytime Scholar Cardigan, pattern by Lisa Chemery, in the 2T-3T size, using Cascade Ecological Wool.

I also showed the Tin Can Knits Rocky Joggers I'm making out of some Smith & Ewe sparkle yarn. Going to frog to make a better size, but loving the pattern!

Recorded on a whim this week and all my FOs are upstairs! Will talk about them next show. Look forward to 2 shawls, 1 hat, and a pair of socks next time!
