@adelaide_fiber_company will be here Thursday-Sunday! Here's a taste of what's in store...

Michelle knit this Wicked Practical Shawl in their Muppets Strike Back colorway. She should have bought two skeins (doh!), but fortunately had some coordinating pink superwash yarn in her stash to get through the second half of the project.
