We announce the winners of our Summer Spin and talk about the upcoming Winter Weave Along. Marsha dog sits, moves along on a sweater, and weaves vicariously. Kelly knits and ferments a fleece. Plus the usual chit chat.

Flowers from My Garden: Starting a spinning project with fiber I bought at Stitches in March. I’ve spun three 3-ply skeins. I received the new motor for my Dreaming Robots EEW 6.0 espinner so I am back in business.
Nanny Meier Tea Cozy: Inspired by Lily Pulitzer colors. Using Cascade 220 in hot pink and lime green. Finished first side.
Santa’s Laundry Line: by Eleonore von Castelmur. Using Lang Yarn Jawol fingering in red, green and cream and some left over fingering weight gray. Finished his jacket and first leg of his pants.
Still working on the baby blanket using the best parts of my mom’s acrylic leftovers.
The fleece portion in the suint bath came out after about two weeks. The smell was very sulfurous. I rinsed it out and left it out to dry. Just like it said in everything I read, the smell disappeared when it was dry. It is still greasy from the lanolin so I’ll need to use hot water. I might spin some of it in the grease just to sample.
