Mini-Episode: Reveal and a Question

Here's the big reveal!

-------Show Notes----------
Big Reveal:
My pattern for the Plurk Podcaster Challenge is Hermione's Cable and Eyelet Hat, and I really hope that you'll KAL with me! You can check out my project here.

You will need:

150-200 yards of worsted weight yarn
Size 5 DPNs or circulars
Cable Needle

The Question:

My Camp Loopy Shawl: should it have a giant border, or an eyelet section in between two stockinette sections? I'll let you decide.

Also, Susu is incredibly needy whenever I'm at the computer, and I'm starting to remember why I used to lock the door when I recorded. Sorry if anyone was highly annoyed by her antics.
