What We Couldn't Resist (a.k.a. Stash Enhancement):

  • Dana was in NYC last week and managed to swing by Purl Soho, where she picked up all the necessities to try out Sashiko embroidery. She got a sampler (Shippo-Tsunagi 203 in Navy), some thread (in "Off White 02"), some needles, and a fancy thimble
  • Kristi only bought 1 skein of yarn since the last episode. It was a de-stash skein of Terminus from LB Art Yarn.
    Kristi won some awesome stitch markers from Gen at Ridiculously Cute for having the winning picture submission in the dye-along picture content in Exquisite Yarn and Fiber Community on Facebook.
    Kristi also got a cool book from her friend Jenny called Craft-In which has a bunch of ideas for craft nights with friends.
