Two finished projects and an almost finished project are the big knitting topics this week. Marsha continues to combo spin and Kelly starts a weaving project. Thanks to all who visited the Two Ewes Shop during the Shop Small sale and supported the making of this podcast!
Marsha has finished her second Among the Shadows Shawl by Kelene Kinnersly. The yarn is Stonehedge Fiber Mill Crazy, made from mill ends.
Marsha's second combo spin is underway. She thinks the skeins look similar to her last one even though her color planning was very different. These skeins will have a variety of fibers, including silk, and the yarn is quite lustrous.
Kelly is almost finished with her Handspun Cowichan sweater. It is the Orca Run by Beth Brown-Reinsel. She is adding an applied i-cord edging to the fronts to give the sweater a little more room, provide a neat zipper placket, and give the whale snouts a little more room.
Winter Weave Along
Marsha has her yarn ready to go, but realized there is no reed in her loom. She'll be using worsted weight yarn so a 10-dent reed is the best choice. Kelly will be visiting soon and the Ewes will get Marsha started on her weaving. Meanwhile Kelly has wound warp for green and red dishtowels.
Kelly has found a Ravelry Group that does a year-long weave along using the Marguerite P. Davidson book, A Handweaver's Pattern Book. The group chooses chapters from the book and then within each chapter, weave structures to experiment with.
Meet the Ewes!
Marsha and Kelly will be attending the St. Distaff Day Spin-In on January 6, 2918, at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington from 10 am until 4 pm. Here is a link with further information.
On the next day, Sunday January 7, The Ewes will be holding a Crafternoon starting at 1 pm. Refreshments, a spirit yarn table, and other surprises will make for a fun afternoon!
