October Pink Along
This is a KAL/CAL for Breast cancer awareness Month. I will get all the info together and start the thread in the next week or at least by the beginning of the month. I am knitting the Surviver Shawl, and those that also knit it will get 2 entries for a chance to win my beautiful Pink handspun. 

Story of Week and Stash Enhancement No New Stash. No finishes. I did start 2 new thing and put some stuff in hibernation. In the next 2 week I am going to be busy. This weekend Ted and I will be traveling to attend my 40th HS Reunion. Then the next weekend we will be attending a wedding of Teds great niece. So busy fun times ahead.
