Marsha’s Projects: 

January Blanket: Handspun Manx Loaghton, 3-ply aran weight, 1,460 yards. Decided to add one additional 15 stitch repeat so I cast on 192 stitches. I went up a need size to #9 and have knit about 34 inches. Estimating it is going to be about 4’ x 5”

Noromania: Bought 18 skeins of Noro Kureyon (Aran weight) to make a blanket for Mark. Swatched with #8 and #9. 

Falkland/Silk/Merino: about 800 yards fingering

EEW 6.0 Electric spinning wheel from Dreaming Robots. Spinning some Polwarth roving.

Kelly’s Projects:

Continuing to work on the Coloresque Wrap Erin Kurup using the Neighborhood Fiber Company rustic fingering gradient set Shades of Turquoise. 

Finished weaving on the Monk’s Belt Weaving project. I got 7 towels and enjoyed the process. It isn’t my favorite weave structure, but I like the results better than I thought I would. Still need to cut them apart and hem them. 

Current piano songs: Happy Birthday (deadline coming soon!), Take Me Out to the Ballgame, and Star Spangled Banner for Baseball spring training.
