Ruffles keep creeping into my knitting.  LaLa's Simple Shawl is pretty with a garter ruffle.  I used the Russian Bind off to bind off in pattern on Rose Becks And So Are You Shawl.  There is a video on the show blog to demonstrate.  Reviews of Green Mountain Spinnery Simply Fine wool/kid mohair blend and their new book 99 Yarns and Counting.  Leave a comment on the show blog to enter a drawing for a skein of Simply Fine.
