  1. Thanks for the mention Knitsip! Glad you like the pattern!
    I love how your Labor Day Shawl is coming out. Stonehedge Mill Ends (Crazy) is some awesome yarn to work with. And the Labor Day makes a great gift because it knits up so fast. Cannot wait to see yours in person! Bring it to knitting Thursday!
    Cannot wait for the first clue to go out on Saturday for "Sunny Side Up"", always busy always knitting!
    Thanks for the podcast!
