Scams and suint baths are stinking up the joint. But the sweater is looking lovely. Join us for a shorter episode with lots of the non-fiber content you know we sometimes cover.
PSA on fraud:
Flowers from My Garden: Starting a spinning project with fiber I bought at Stitches in March. I’ve spun five 3-ply skeins.
Snowflower: by Heidi Kirrmeier. Using 13 Mile Lamb and Wool for the main color and Brooklyn Tweed Tones for some of the contrasting colors. Currently knitting 3” rib on the body.
Nanny Meier Tea Cozy: Inspired by Lily Pulitzer colors. Using Cascade 220 in hot pink and lime green. Finished first side.
Santa’s Laundry Line: by Eleonore von Castelmur. Using Lang Yarn Jawol fingering in red, green and cream and some left over fingering weight gray. Finished his jacket, pants, hat and currently knitting his long johns.
Socks: Using Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn in the colorway Sum-Sum-Summertime. Heels and toes will be Dream in Color Mini Smooshy in the colorway Bermuda Teal. Knitting the gusset of the first sock.
Daphne’s Skull: I’m back at it! I pulled out the project and figured out I had stopped just before knitting the teeth for the upper jaw. I have now knit 6 out of 16 teeth for the upper jaw. Very fiddly knitting and, honestly, not that fun but I’m determined to finish him before Halloween.
Still working on the baby blanket using the best parts of my mom’s acrylic leftovers.
Suint Bath Update: Put the dark half of the new romney fleece in the suint bath right after last week’s episode. Wow, it smells bad. Still soaking.
