Marsha’s Projects

Noromania: I am using 42 skeins of Noro Kureyon (Aran weight) to make a blanket for Mark. I’ve knit 56 inches and used 29 balls. 

Anzula Socks: Using two shades of Anzula Dreamy (blue) and Squishy (coral) that I bought at Stitches 2022. Working on the foot of the second sock.

Flowers from My Garden: Starting a spinning project with fiber I bought at Stitches in March. I spun three bobbins each holding a 4 oz braid. I plied a third skein and am spinning singles again.

Bankhead Hat: Using Dimond Laine Elmer Tweed worsted from Lamb & Kid in the colorways Fir and Farmhouse. Here are links to the tubular cast on tutorials from Brooklyn Tweed and Purl Soho. I’m about half way done. Using 2 stripes Farmhouse and 5 stripes Fir.

Nanny Meier Tea Cozy: Finished the tea cozy for my friend Brian. Using Cascade 220 in navy and yellow.

Rose Colored Glasses Towels: Using a weaving kit from Gist Yarns to make monk’s belt hand towels. I have warped the loom and have started weaving. A bit of a delay when I realized I needed a second shuttle for the Monk’s Belt pattern.

Kelly’s Projects

I’m continuing the pair of socks for myself using the yarn from Purl 2 Walla Walla called Epicurean Kitchen. It’s a pale gold, wine, and rose that looks like it has been overwashed with a pale gray. One sock is done and I’m starting the second sock.

I finished spinning the braid I bought from Wonderland Dyeworks. The colorway is Summer Bliss and it is green, gold, and deep purple. I’ve spun up the 5 oz. of singles with a fractal technique and I plan to make a 3 ply. 

Summer Spin in Bliss

I've been working on my quilt since I was in high school. 

I am spinning the Cormo x merino x Wensleydale fleece and I’ve finished three bobbins and I’m ready to ply.
