Marsha’s Projects

Alpaca Shawl: Finished. I learned so much about weaving on this project. I had so many broken warp threads that I've gotten really good at repairing them.

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: Cast on and about halfway done with the yoke.

Combo Spin #4: I needed something a bit mindless at the beach so I started my fourth combo spin in red.

Kelly’s Projects

The Trailer bedroom curtains were finished and installed in time for our trip. The cord at the bottom worked great. I’m going to wash in hot water and dry in the dryer one more time, then I might just rehem them a little shorter so they will hug tighter to the window. 

Almost finished with The Drifter by Tamy Gore, Narrow Path Designs. I probably have about 30 rows left in the pattern. 

For Out of Hibernation I’ve been spinning the batts of Corriedale x Merino x Targhee that I washed, dyed, and carded last summer. The blue is now finished and I’m working on the red-orange. Also for the Out of Hibernation Along, I finally got all the Spin-In prizes sent out!

I started another 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 started a sock out of another skein of Comfort and Joy Enjoy. This one is also an Oopsie colorway. I’m thinking of it as Wine and Cheddar or maybe Wine and Mustard. I’m finished with the cuff and debating about what patterning to use on the leg. 

Chicken Mania

Are you knitting an Emotional Support Chicken by Annette Corsino? We are thinking about joining in the chicken mania! 

Ravelry Tips and Tricks

Sarah Salpal1 says:

 It’s not a secret, but the Ravelry tip that helps me the most is the ? Button next to “preview” on the posts. It tells how to do all kinds of formatting things, which is very helpful. She showed (for example) how to make a spoiler alert so that your text will be hidden unless someone clicks on it. 

Out-of-Hibernation Along 

February 1 - June 1. Have you started? Find something that has been in hibernation and get it out and do something. Back to active status, frogging and reclaiming yarn, giving away, throwing away, composting–this is spring cleaning for your project list. Check in with your progress in the Ravelry thread.

Seattle Opera Production of Barber of Seville

Friday, May 17th

20% discount on tickets with the code KNITTER20

Seattle Opera is having a Relaxed Performance of our production of The Barber of Seville. While there will be no changes to the performance, the experience for the audience will have some alterations including:

• Lights being dimmed in the theater instead of fully dark
• A relaxed atmosphere allowing patrons to talk and vocalize as they wish
• Being able to leave and re-enter the theater as needed
• Special areas designated as a technology use area

…and much more.

These adaptations are designed for a multitude of people and as a knitter myself, I couldn’t help but think this would be great for groups of fiber artists to attend and craft throughout the show! While I can knit a basic pair of socks during a performance, having the lights up alone will make it easier to find any dropped stitches or check a pattern.

More information about the production can be found at More information about what a relaxed performance entails can be found at

Associate Director of Marketing and Knitter

Thank you Meg for offering listeners a discount on tickets. It should be a fun event.
