Episode 120

show notes | episode 120  

This week, I finished my Moon Shawl using the kit from Skeino, and do a review of the kit.  I flash some Easter sewing I did for the kids, show the crazy progress I've made on my handspun socks, and we talk yogurt!  

Did I mention I've also been dyeing?!  It's been a while since I've done much dyeing since it's much more challenging with the kids around, but I carved out a little time for it this weekend.

I hope everyone is having a great spring so far! I can't wait to start planning some warm weather projects.  I see lots of socks in my future!  

Nothing! I did dye up some spinning fiber though!

My official FO is the lovely, fluffy Moon Shawl from Skeino.

I also show some finished sewing I did for my kiddos for Easter. I used this pattern from Melly Sews and whipped up a couple of cute little bunnies out of some scrap fabric I had on hand. You can get the pattern for free if you sign up for her newsletter.
