Japan Earthquake Relief
Nature Notes: Panther in Illinois? Other in my area have seen it. Before repeating anything a little bird told you, be sure it wasn't a cuckoo.
Needle Notes: I was caught without my shawl comfort knitting last week. I fixed a pair of Scottish Kilt Hose that I knitted in 1996 before I became a piper. My Fix It Challenge is to review your knitting to see what needs repair or modifications. The Norwegian Setesdal Sweater continues. I am almost done with the body of the sweater. I want to start knitting a shawl, in particular Stripe Study Shawl.
Pipeliners share their ideas of comfort knitting. I review the following patterns from Quince & Co: Barcelona Scarflet, Abbey Road Socks, and Sabrina Mitts. Leave a comment on the show blog to enter a drawing for one of these patterns and your choice of Tern to make it. Also Carrie Hoge's pattern new garter stitch baby sweater and cap are adorable. I review Tern fingering weight yarn by Quince.
View a video of Celtic Cross Pipes and Drums in the Peoria IL St. Patrick's Day Parade on the show blog. I am in the front row, in the middle and those are my shoes and kilt hose you see for a second or two later on.
