Episode 127 – Ice Cream Trucks

Episode 127 – Ice Cream Trucks

Ann is officially out of school for the summer!  

FO [finished objects]

I frogged the Gramps Cardigan that I had completed (minus the buttons) and reclaimed the City Tweed DK that I had used for it.

Frogged the Timeless Henley and reclaimed the Hazel Knits big wheel.

I finished spinning the polwarth battlings that Janis got me at MDSW.   I got about 275 yards of a 2-ply fingering weight yarn that I promptly cast on!!
