Ch 176: Sprite’s Fen Shawl and NYC Adventures!

I’m in New York City this week, about to head to Squam. Today I chat a bit about the newest Shawl Society design, with some handy advice for the knitting process. I also talk about what I’ve been getting up to in the city, some of the things I’m looking forward to at Squam, some new projects, and all the wonderful knitting I’m getting done while I’m away!
