Kelly is healing and Marsha is having fun with dog agility. Oh,yeah! We're also playing with string!

Kelly finished some shortie socks with her Bee Yarn (Sunflower colorway from Duren Dyeworks). She also finished the The Double Trouble Reversible Beanie by Petite Knitter. Kelly is experimenting with color changes in her version. The inside layer has some tension issues, seeming to be a more loose gauge than the outside layer. More practice needed!
Kelly also started a side-to-side cardigan called Assam by Laura Chau. She found this by doing an advanced pattern search for cardigans with the gauge from a swatch of Sockotta held double.
Marsha has been working monogamously on the pullover Cobblestone by Jared Flood Two days ago she attached the sleeves to the body and has knit about 3” of the yoke. She is using the New Lanark Mill DK she bought in Scotland last year.
Other ways to play with string...A (K)Not Along! The Two Ewes will be starting a challenge for fiber projects that are NOT knitting, crochet, spinning, or weaving. The NOT (or KNOT) Along will start on May 31 and goes through August 31, so think about what you want to be working on this summer that is (K)NOT knitting, crochet, or weaving.
Marsha plans to make some Beeswax wraps and to deconstruct some drapes so they can be remade to fit her windows. Kelly plans to do some punch needle rug hooking.
Kelly: Water for bees, bee hotel for native pollinators, plant trees for bees.
