Marsha’s Projects: 

Happiness by Kyle Kunnecke using Yarn Snob PowerBall in the colorway Happiness. I have finished the neckband, the first sleeve and have about one inch to do on the second sleeve. Can I call this done?

Spinning: Still spinning the Manx Loaghton. I have spun 11 skeins, 1,116 yards, or 22 ounces, of a 2 pound bag of roving. Filled two more bobbins. This spinning project is going to be in the works for a while.

Cast on a Socks for Mark using Weird Sisters Wool Emporium fingering weight called Luke in colorway Mermaids of the Black Lake. I realized there are 328 yards, so for the heels and toes I bought a skein of Dream in Color Yarn fingering called Mini Smooshy in the colorway As A Bird. 

Kelly’s Projects:

Finished the Central Park West shawl by Chic and Regal Knits. Using The Fiber Co. Acadia in cranberry, Jack pine, and orange storm colorways. 

I did a little work on the Adult Layette shortie socks using leftovers from my Rachel pullover. I already have a hat out of leftovers so the socks will complete my layette. LOL! 

Purchased some Tunis roving from Charis at Tarheelbilly Farms. Visit @tarheelbillyfarmer on Instagram

Turning Ground Yoga, yoga with a focus on knitters was a suggestion from a listener, Adrienne.
