Project Updates 

Kelly joined in the Mystery Knit Along with Cozy Up Knits. She’ll be using the Two Ewes Replenish Rambouillet for a 3 color shawl in 5 weeks. She is also participating in the 2019 Herbert Niebling KAL and the Yarniacs Self Indulgent Knit Along with some Niebling lace patterns. Her Glocklein is finished and she is planning for two more of these fun lace patterns.

Marsha continues to work on Slack Tide by Poststitch and is making steady progress. The yarn is Concentric by Hikoo, which is singles that are not pied. It’s very “splitty” and difficult to knit with especially on knit two together, but it’s beautiful fabric.

Marsha is waiting for a day to herself to work uninterrupted on Rabbit by Claire Garland. Marsha is also knitting Cloud Cover by Heidi Kirrmaier. It has an unusual construction. Knit yoke, then sleeves, then body, then collar. Marsha has finished first sleeve and started second.

She’s still planning for SnowFlower by Heidi Kirrmaier The natural yarn arrived and she’s been thinking about colors. The “snowflower” will be the natural color but the CC can be anything!

Marsha has carded a bunch of Wensleydale x Corriedale x Merino cross and has been spinning it. This fleece is a gorgeous dark espresso color!
