Huge thanks to Helen of the Crafty Toads Podcast and Crafty Toads NJ Etsy shop for being a great swap partner in Jeanette of the Bookish Stitcher’s book and yarn swap!!!

Books read: Wool by Hugh Howey, A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling and some guys, Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke, The Giver by Lois Lowry.

FO’s: Abigale Shawl by Rachel Paulsel of Night Owl Fibers in Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere in Hey Sunshine colorway.  This is an entry in Samantha from The Yarn Reader Podcast’s Queue Along. I plan on wearing it to Stitches, TX where I want to visit Rachel’s booth and get some Night Owl Fibers yarn and some Undead Yarn from Heidi.

WIP’s: Surprise Stripes Knee Socks by Anna Johanna out of my sock yarn scraps, Song of the Sea Cowl by Louise Zass-Bangham for the Purls Before Twine Song of the Sea Knit-along in Sweet Sparrow Yarns Nuthatch base in the Pure Reason colorway, Lafitte Shawl by Denise Bell of Lost City Knits out of Lost City Knits Oak Barn Merino Lace in red.

Cross Stitch: a bookmark for Helen that I could not finish before the mailing date of the book and yarn swap. I will send it to her when I am done.

Sewing: A major setback in the Decades of Style 1940’s Empire Waist Trousers when I sewed two backs together for one leg and two fronts together for the other leg.  My Frixion marking pens are heat soluble and my markings disappeared when I pressed my darts. You think the name Frixion would have given me a clue!

We are making stitch markers for the Stitches, TX stitch marker swap.  If you are coming and see us there HUGS ARE FREE!

Training: I am getting reading for the St. Jude Half Marathon in Memphis, TN, but in the meantime I will run a 10K for a sweet hoodie, and another half marathon as a test of fitness for Memphis.
