Marsha’s Projects
I finished 1898 Hat by Kristine Byrnes with worsted weight. Leading Men Fiber Arts Box Office Worsted in the colorway Wild Goose Chase. The pattern is available for free on the Seamen’s Church Institute: Christmas at Sea website. 

I restarted Shared Rib by Anne Hanson as a cowl. I'm using Old Maiden Aunt fingering that in the colorway Crimson Lips that I bought at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival.

I also started Daphne’s Skull designed by Ellen Sibelius owner of Wooly Wonders. To hear more about her designs check out Episode 109. Keep your fingers crossed I finished this by Halloween. ;-)
The start of a knitted skull.

Kelly’s Projects
My only project is the pair of Seabrook Socks out of Little Fish Stitches yarn in the Seabrook Sunset colorway exclusive to String Theory Yarn and Fiber. Using a pattern of traveling purl stitches inspired by Hermione’s Everyday Sock pattern. 

I did move the spinning wheel into the bedroom but still haven’t done any spinning. 

Exciting Shop News
The Ewes have several new bases coming soon to the shop. Besides the hand-dyed fingering weight Replenish Rambouillet, we will also have a sport weight and a worsted weight. In addition, there will be two small-batch yarns available--one Romney and another Corriedale x Romeldale. We’ll keep you posted about a coming shop Grand Re-Opening!
