FOs (Finished Objects)

Kelsey: No FOs this episode

Glenda: Wearing - Cozy (Me) by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne, made with Cascade 220 Heathers in Pale Indigo Heather

WIPS (Works in Progress)


  • Waiting for Rain by Sylvia McFadden/Softsweater. Made with Briggs & Little Sport in the oddly named Grey Heather.
  • Atlin Sweater by Pip & Pin, made with Dakota yarn from the Fidalgo Artisan Yarn store in Anacortes, WA. Haven’t been working on it much, because I’m trying to finish other projects
  • Weekender Blanket by Sandra Paul. Using all my worsted weight scraps and minis. Pulled this out of a pile of projects and my gauge is way off… also I can only crochet a little bit each day.


  • Aila by Isabel Kraemer - Vegan Yarn Pelaides sock yarn, colourway Seaside

  • Imogen Tee - by Carrie Bostick Hoge in Holst Garn Samarkand Aubergine aka Eggplant, because I can’t pronounce cool British words! The Samarkand is discontinued but the Holst Garn Tides is a wonderful replacement for this yarn if you want to get a similar look and feel.

Desert Island Yarn - if you could use only one yarn forever, what would it be and why? 
- We are going to do a giveaway for a copy of Sylvia’s new Lovable Sweater pattern. To enter, tell us in the Giveaway Thread what your Desert Island Yarn is. We will pick a winner on April 30th.
