Story of Week and Stash Enhancements  For stash, I got my order from Knit Picks, which you will see in WIPs.                                                               Been a little under the weather this week with a cold, sore throat thing, as you can probably hear, that is why episode is a day later.         Ted and I will be leaving next Friday for a week in Florida, so there will not be a regular episode in two weeks, but stay tuned for a possible periscope or a vlog of sorts during that week.
