Marsha’s Projects

Malabrigo Nube Merino Braids: Finished! Colorway 855 which is a blue green. Approximately lace weight and 1,036 yards.

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. Finished first side.

Fine Sand: by Heidi Kirrmaier. Using West Yorkshire Spinners Illustrious in the colorway Claret. 

Alpaca Shawl: I found four errors in my threading. Had a discussion with Kelly. Couldn’t find any information on treadling for a Rosepath warp. All this led to my decision to remove Rosepath threading and rethread with straight draw. I’m getting back on track.

Socks: The Artful Ewe Clackamas. I don’t know the name of the colorway but it's red…again.

Kelly’s Projects

All the squares are sewed into 20 strips of 14 squares.  So Dozens of Little Squares is actually 280 squares.  Four strips sewn together already and it’s going quickly. 

Continuing on the Sockhead Hat with Punk Rock Unicorn Dirty Neon. PRU is a German company.

I badly need trip knitting ready to go since I leave on Sunday for an all day flight to Florida! I’ve had The Drifter by Tamy Gore, Narrow Path Designs in my library for a while waiting to use two particular yarns.  I’m using Invictus Yarns, Master of My Feet in New Jeans along with Stitch Stuff Yarns Plumpy Stuff in Off the Grid. The Stitch Stuff was a gift related to the conference I’m going to, so it seemed perfect to use it now. 

Other designs in Tamy Gore’s portfolio are calling to me. London Dusk is a unique take on the colorwork yoke. My attention was also caught by Trelawny, a short sleeve sweater with the wider neckline I like. In both of them I prefer the low contrast versions.

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. 


Winter Weave Along starts October 1 and goes through March 31. Join the fun in our Ravelry group!
