Knitter’s Haven is a gathering spot for crafters located in LaQuinta, California. Coachella Valley Yarns is located inside selling various yarns including the owner’s hand dyed yarn called Smirligans.

Marsha’s Projects

Emotional Support Chicken: Finished! Chicken Mania is real! I’ve made two so far. Number One looks a bit like a Barred Rock and Number Two vaguely like a Buff Orpington.

Camella Hat: by Katie Pomper. Using Meeker Street Olive’s Outerwear DK in the colorway Dragon’s Breath. 

Nanny Meier Tea Cozy: Inspired by Lily Pulitzer colors. Using Cascade 220 in hot pink and lime green. Cast on the second side.

Fine Sand: by Heidi Kirrmaier. Using West Yorkshire Spinners Illustrious. Finished the second sleeve but I don’t really like the sweater. Bringing to California for Kelly to give me her thoughts.

Socks: The Artful Ewe Clackamas. Starting toe of first sock.

Baby Surprise Jacket: by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Went to buy yarn at Fiber Gallery to use my gift cards but they have moved and not yet reopened the store. 

Mountain High Combo Spin #3: About halfway done with the body.

Combo Spin #4: I’ve spun two bobbins and started the third bobbin getting ready for a 3-ply.

Kelly’s Projects

I am continuing on the Classic Knitted Ripple baby blanket using the Red Heart from my mom. There were two grays, black, white and a partial skein of red. I decided I needed to use the white and the pink. The blanket is wider than a typical baby blanket and will take more yarn.  I'm about 12 inches from finishing it. 

Chickens! Finished: One worsted weight, one fingering weight (size 1 needles).  Started one boucle chicken.
