The voting is over and Dream Stripes by Cailliau Berangere has won with 38% and a good second Leftie by Martina Dehm.
So we will be knitting the Dream Stripes. The KAL is going to start like today and will go on untill may 15 2013. So you do not have to cast on right away. Find the perfect yarn and then get going.
Tag your project with DSKSDH (DreamStripsKalSweDutchHandcrafts) so it will be easier to randomly pick a winner from the finished objects.

We now have 74 for members and I am really excited about that!
Every week I draw a RAP from the group, as you all now, and this time Nancy Liedel won a RAP.
I have sent her the Color Affection by Veera Välimäki.

The knitting bag I got in the mail is from Maria Elena's Bliss and here you can find here on Etsy.

I hope I did not forget anything.

Episode 16: Finally shownotes

I apologize for the bad quality today.
Maybe I have to buy another camera or even another laptop!

I have opened upp a Etsy shop for my American friends.
Because I wasn't able to make the changes for Amerika in my regular shop.
You are welcome to take a look and tell me what you think about it!

On the needles:
I casted on (against my own rules) a sweater for my husband with different kind of cables which he has choosen all by himself (proud of him ;))

Off the needles:
The hat for my cousins dad and I am going to mail that today!
And hopefully it fits. Otherwise I have wool left to make a bigger one.

Haven't done that much but a bit anyway.
I have absolutely no idea what the fiber is because the owner of the shop I got it from did not no either.
I will ply them together and make something out of it.

The Hat Heels sock KAL is finished and 10 people actually made it to the deadline.
A price is appropriate and BIM HD is the lucky girl.!
Congratulations to you.

The next will be the Double Heelix sock by Jeny Stainman.
The patterns is free so no excuses for not participating!

Hope to see you next on my podcast.
Have fun watching!
