Fish & Chips Baby Sweater made with leftover bits of Merino Superwash
- I found the pattern with a google search; these sweaters are sent to needy babies in Africa by various organizations (Soroptomist Club, Stephen Lewis Foundation Granny Groups, etc). Many of the babies are in orphanages or are affected with HIV and/or AIDS. The ‘Fish & Chip’ name came from the fact that they were sometimes sent home in newspaper because they didn’t have proper clothes. I think the local chapter of the Stephen Lewis foundation is still collecting them, if not I will mail it to one of the groups I found online.
Sara: Wearing - not a darn knitted thing in sight!
WIPS (Works in Progress):
BLUEB - This WIP is taking a while - should be done by mid-to-late June. Sara is pregnant, joining the ranks of Wet Coast Wools regulars who are also expecting :)

* It was supposed to have become a Noro Striped Scarf, but I frogged the 4” I had knit and started making this hat.
The #FixFrogFinish2018 KAL: Runs from January until the end of June 2018.
* Dig out all your FOs and decide whether you are going to finish them,
or frog them and re-purpose the yarn. This is also your chance to fix things
that are already finished - either in terms of darning or pulling out and
* This will be a chatter-type thread: in one post, list the FOs you need to deal with, and what you end up doing with them. Update the same post as you fix, frog, or finish each item Dont forget to add the hashtag to your ravelry project as well !
Spring Sock Stashdown KAL with Bernadette and her new Coffee & Craft Podcast.
The KAL Started on January 8th and runs until May.
It is a yardage based KAL meant to help you use up fingering weight yarn:
You can make anything you you want - socks, blankets, etc. If you are doing a mini blanket, you must finish the blanket in order for the squares to count.
The Chatter Thread is in our Ravelry Group, and the Prize entry thread is in Bernadette’s Coffee & Craft Podcast Group thread.
Glenda is going on holidays, so the next podcast will be after the middle of February. I am hoping to film a little bit while on holiday, which I will try to add to the next podcast.
