This episode could also be known as Ladies Of The Snit-we heard there is a podcast with that name-brilliant! . It is March. It is very cold. There is still snow on the ground. The end is not really in sight, although the days are nice and long. This fellow is in Sally’s neighborhood. He is really making her grumpy. It’s really time for this guy to have some well deserved time off.
Check out our Ravelry forum page for shared projects. Here are a few of the latest that have caught our fancy.

Off The Needles:
Kris: Finished her Knit Your Love shawl for Ravellenics. It’s adorable and tiny. Kris has had a decades long battle with devious gauge. She swears she will knit a gauge swatch next time. Stay tuned.
Susan: Finished her Sugar Is Sweet by Rose Beck shawlette out of some yummy Madtosh Pashmina in foxglove. It is beautiful and wearable.
On The Needles:
Kris: is working on the Lonely Tree Shawl by Sylvia Bobilvia out of some beautiful red/pink/ Manos Wool Classica
Susan : Is knitting some great socks for her husband. It’s a guy thing, a really spiffy pattern by Caroline Egwar, who works at J.P Knit & Stitch out of some manly Malabrigo Sock in the Persia colorway.
Sally :Is slogging away on her Color Affection. She became disenchanted with the Olympics and abandoned them in favor of actual x-country skiing and reading. Lots of batches of brownies have been baked as well.
