This episode is all about the knitting projects and the plans. Kelly continues to work on two summer sweaters and has cast on a couple new small projects. Marsha finished a small project while keeping up progress on her stockinette rectangle!
The Easy Folded Poncho project continues, but meanwhile Marsha started an finished the Greenery Beret by Melissa LaBarre. She is having difficulty getting project pictures without someone to take photos of her during the daylight hours. She is planning the next sweater and has been swatching, but so far hasn't made a decision.
A conference and a weekend with Dad means that Kelly has made good progress on both Edie and the Havannah tee shirts. Meanwhile, she started a pair of socks with the turquoise and orange CoBaSi yarn that came from Maker's Mercantile. The stripes have a small slip stitch detail and the colors are fabulous together.
While recording, Kelly cast on another one of the In Threes baby sweaters using the last of her Colorando yarn.
Kelly visited Yarnitudes in Sebastopol when she picked up the bee packages. The yarn shop was conveniently just down the street from Bee Kind. While there she picked up cotton blend yarns for more baby sweaters.
Despite multiple signs saying "Yarn," a customer came in and wanted to know where the antiques were. Trudy, the proprietress, said it happens all the time!
Marsha had another call from the GoodWill and she left the shop with Madeleine Tosh and some Buffalo Wool. The Tosh was what she used for the hat and she is considering some options with the Buffalo Wool. It is a Canadian unspun wool yarn used for Cowichan-style sweaters.
Marsha and Kelly will be at the Black Sheep Gathering June 23-25, and there will be a Two Ewes meet-up on Saturday, June 24. No trailer this year, but we will definitely have a get-together with our fellow fiber adventurers. More details in the Ravelry Group and on the podcast as the event gets closer.
