Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, the Yarn Harlot + Astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield + a special sock = love! ♥ Happy Fuzzy Yarn is looking to make space in their studio.

Andi designed a fun 2 Day Dishcloth. I dove into my stash and quickly knitted one up, unintentionally it looks like my front yard with grass starting to appear amid the snow. Beth Graham wrote up two great ball-band inspired dishcloths for crochet and knit!
