Knitting, spinning and preparing for the Black Sheep Gathering has Marsha and Kelly so excited that they can't stay on topic! Lots of interesting (we hope!) tangents in this episode.
Kelly cast on and finished a Spirit Yarn project. The Bethel Tank has been in her queue for about two years. She used some coned cotton that she and Marsha had dyed a couple summers ago in a dyeing experiment. Along with the cotton she carried along a strand of rough-spun linen coned yarn.
The Spirit Yarn Along will continue until June 30 in the Ravelry Group. Winners will be chosen randomly from the discussion participants. Share your projects and Spirit Yarn stories. While discussing the projects Marsha speculated that there was probably a podcast about buying storage units. Indeed there is! Kelly found this podcast about buying storage units. Storage Auction Shogun's Podcast.
Kelly is also working on Civil War era socks for her husband from a 19th century pattern. The toes, cuffs, and heels will be her handspun. It is a 3-ply mohair and merino blend fiber from Sincere Sheep. The leg and foot of the socks will be Invictus Yarn BFL sock in an indigo color.
Going to the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, Oregon? If so, we have a meet-up planned for the evening of Saturday, June 25. We hope you can join us. Listen to the show and check out the Ravelry Group for more details.
