ON THE NEEDLES
Yarn: Wollmeise DK
- Mama Ruffles Shawl: Cascade 220 Fingering, "Sage"
- It's living in my new Octopus project bag from A Homespun House!
- Originally, I was going to use the Sage colorway to cast on a Bonny tank, but decided the color didn't suit me. Instead, I will be casting on the tank using Madelinetosh Prairie in "Grenadine" colorway.
- Canopy Shawl: Wollmeise, "A Little Crazy"
- I made a few mistakes while video chatting with friends and had to rip back a few rows.
- I'm keeping it in my Naughty Kitty project bag from A Homespun House
- Cozy Memories Blanket: This week I knit in 3 new squares using mini skeins from Kemper and Molly.
- I'm keeping it in my Unicorn project bag from Love Sock Wool.

- D-SPAKAL: I must confess, I'm losing steam — probably because I decided to ply-on-the-fly and it's taking FOREVER to spin. Don't worry, I'm not giving up! I'm just going to take a wee break and take my time.
- Hobbledehoy Battlings: I finished spinning and plying a tweedy blue battling on my Golding, and currently spinning a hunter green one.
- Quaere Fibre: Tweed Fingering, "Fairy Dust"
- I took advantage of free shipping over at LoveKnitting.com
- Regia 4-fadig Color / 07306
- Regia 4 fadig Tweed / 00090
- I received my Favorite Things Swap from Kemper of the Junkyarn Podcast! Love everything she sent: A handmade "llamacorn" pin, a Hello Kitty Tin, tea, and six miniskeins! <3 li="" nbsp="">3>

Next Shop Update: March, Friday 13th 2015 @ 2pm EST
- I give credit and thanks to Dani from the Little Bobbins podcast for inspiring me to start dyeing sock blanks.
- Big Shiny Dye Experiment: This week on the FO & Dye Podcast, me, Elly (FO & Dye), Laura (Gynx Yarns), and Ginny (Penguin Soup) showed off our versions of "Puff the Magic Dragon". I will be making my version available to purchase in the shop this week!
This week I ramble on about how I'm not into thriller and mystery series/movies. Dennis and I had watched Robocop (the new version) and wasn't crazy about it.
