On the Needles:(0:33)
Gigi has finally started the Mishke, by Cocoknits out of Donegal Tweed. Jasmin finished her sideways Baby Wrap Sweater out of Froebe Fiber yarn. She is almost finished with the garter wrap kimono cardigan for Genevieve out of Skinny Bugga.
Gigi has been blocking away! She blocked her Pogona shawl and her second Citron shawl (knit out of sparkly yarn from Huckleberry's). Jasmin is redoing the edge on her Pogona shawl (knit out of A Verb for Keeping Warm Metamorphosis). We talk about going to A Verb for Keeping Warm to meet Stephen West.
