The Ewes are busy and so are the bees! Knitting with yarn from the Two Ewes Shop, combo-spin mania continues, charity hats, camping trips and a host of other topics make for a bonus-sized episode.

Marsha's project updates

Marsha finished her Recoleta by Joji Locatelli made with Neighborhood Fiber Company Studio Worsted. Marsha loves this sweater!

After testing several hat patterns for our Single Shot contest, in the end Marsha made up her own hat pattern using Two Ewes Raucous Rambouillet from the shop.

Marsha is obsessed with combo spinning. She cast on Beeline by Heidi Kirrmaier with her first combo spin. She is loving knitting with her yarn and seeing the colors change.

Marsha started her second combo spin with rovings she bought from vendors at Fiber Fusion Northwest. At Fiber Fusion she also bought a breed study sampler pack of 32 fibers from Fleeber Fibers.

Kelly's project updates

Kelly has been knitting charity hats and cowls. So far five hats are finished, all using very old spirit yarn. Another hat and cowl are in progress. A fun long weekend camping trip was the place for three hats to be finished.An upcoming conference will allow for finishing the cowl.

Kelly has some sweater plans. One is an old pattern from a 2007 magazine. She got rid of old knitting magazines, but did save some of the patterns that she had marked as potential so long ago. Knit it Down is one of those patterns. An Elizabeth Doherty pattern also caught her eye as a MUST KNIT! The pattern is Bodie, a textured cardigan with a long, almost coat-like, silhouette.

The Handspun Cowichan sweater is moving quickly but hasn't been worked on in almost two weeks. The colorwork is giving Kelly a challenge (3 strands, 2 hands!), so she is being selective about when to work on it.

Bee update:

What's happening with bees in November? One the California Central Coast they're still busy as bees! Bringing in pollen and nectar and going strong. Well, two of the hives are still going strong at least. There have been late summer/early fall losses.

Wishing all the US listeners a Happy Thanksgiving! We're thankful for all of our listeners. You have been so supportive and we're happy to you join us each episode for knitting, spinning, and fiber talk. Thank You!

Marsha and Kelly have been off the airwaves for about a month.  Marsha was cleaning house when we last recorded and Kelly did some housecleaning instead of editing this episode.  Thus the two week time warp. Wait, what?  Cleaning house?  Instead of podcasting?  Who are these podcasters and what have you done with our regular hosts?????

No further show notes this time since it is just time to GET THIS PUBLISHED! Join us on Instagram @1hundredprojects and @betterinmotion and chat on our Ravelry Group to hear more about our current projects.

To get some of our Two Ewes Fiber Adventures yarn, go to the Two Ewes Fiber Adventures shop.
