Plus project updates, announcement of the winners of our Stitches West 2022 Celebration Giveaway, and a JUL Designs discount. We are still recording together at Kelly’s house in California so no editing again this episode.

Marsha’s Projects: 

Garter Squish Blanket On the eighth of fourteen contrasting colors 

Unpattern Top Down Raglan Pullover by Karen Alfke. I have knit about 8 inches of the body.

I’m spinning a 2lb bag of Manx Loaghton in my stash. This is a protected breed from the Isle of Man. I am using a woolen spun technique and have spun 5 skeins or approximately 400 yards 

Kelly’s Projects:

The Garter Squish blanket using handspun leftovers.

Mielie vest using Schaeffer Yarn Company Little Danya mohair. Considered bulky so I did some modifications to the pattern. Color is Rosa Parks and it was spirit yarn from NoCKRs retreat in 2018.

Stash-Busting Blanket Along

Ends May 31. We talked to so many people at NoCKRs retreat who were also blanketing along with us. Our friend Heddicraft actually finished her crochet flower blanket while at the retreat. We joked that she could use the Winter Weave(-In) Along to weave in all the ends. 

Here are pictures of our blankets so far and of us at the retreat.
