A little knitting, a lot of knitting planning, and details about the scrumptious yarn and fiber in the Two Ewes Fiber Adventures shop.
Kelly has taken a break from the Summer Fjord tee by Trin-Annelie She had made great progress, but then found a new fun project. Wolkig is a really interesting and EASY cowl by Martina Behm. It's a perfect pairing yarn and pattern. The yarn is a super shiny yak/silk blend handspun.
Marsha is continuing to work on her two shawls, Twice Born by Magdalena Lorentz and Among the Shadows by Kelene Kinnersly. Meanwhile, she has swatched for three different sweaters so there will be a new project on the needles soon.
The Two Ewes talk about the process of having yarn made from their fleeces and they describe each of the yarns that is available in the shop. There are three different gray yarns, a Merino, a Romney, and a Shetland. All are available in gray and also in beautifully overdyed colors.
There are two white yarns that are available in hand-dyed skeins, a soft, fluffy, and textured rambouillet is available in a worsted weight. A more rare variety, a Border Leicester/Corriedale cross, is available in about a sport weight.
The rambouillet wool is also available in carded batts. The batts are a blend of the wool, mohair, and silk noil.
In appreciation for Two Ewes listeners, one lucky listener was selected to win an item from the shop.
