Marsha’s Projects

Nanny Meier’s Tea Cozy by Amelia Carlsen. I am using Cascade 220 Heather in Red Wine Heather (9489) and green Irelande (2429). I have finished both sides and am ready to sew together and make pompoms.

Meadow Stripe Socks using Patons Kroy Sock in the colorway, Meadow Stripes and Lang Yarns Jawoll Superwash fingering for the heels and toes. Finished the first sock and worked on the second sock.

Quick Switch Hat by AbbyeKnits. My son liked the hat so much I cast on another for him using Meeker Street Olives Outerwear DK in the colorway Sage.

Phrancko Designs crew neck from Phrancko.com by Frank Jernigan. I’m using my green and brown handspun merino. I have finished the body and am ready to start ribbing.

Started a spinning project with merino roving from The Weaving Works that I bought at a gathering of spinners on Whidbey Island several years ago. There is one ounce each of green (Amazon), blue (Cornflower), light blue (Rain), and mauve (Plum).

These are the fountain pens my brother found: 

. Waterman, chased hard black rubber from early 1900’s

. Wahl, gold patented 1/23/04 

. Black desk pen no manufacturer name

Kelly’s Projects

I’m still working on a pair of socks (Ravelry link) in Bob Ross Happy Little Mistakes yarn from Weird Sisters Wool Emporium in Aberdeen. I’m using the stitch pattern from Blueberry Waffle socks. 

I finished the Sockhead Hat (Kelly McClure) using the 2020 NoCKRs retreat colorway and Nevermore from Invictus Yarns. I also used a little of the Vivid Wool from Iceland. These were leftovers from a pullover I still haven’t blocked or worn.

I started a Garter Squish blanket to use the handspun leftovers from my tossing of the stash. I’m about to the halfway mark and I’m almost done with the natural white Columbia and Oxford that I’m using as the base color. I’m going to have to spin more.
