A stash busting Garter Squish blanket obsession, project updates, and after almost two years of online teaching, Kelly returns to the classroom. Lots to discuss this week.
Transcript at end of show notes.
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.
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
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.
