A completed poncho, a train adventure, a handspun sweater, and an amazing beekeeping experience are on this week's show.
Marsha's ProjectsMarsha finished her Rodeo Drive Poncho. Marsha is really happy with this pattern by Staci Perry. She has also worked on her Good Vibes shawl. Even the Pismo Beach socks (yarn from the yarn crawl in our very first podcast) got a little knitting during her adventurous train trip!
Kelly's ProjectsKelly has finished 4 more Pussy Hats. She also finally got on the ball and knitted the button band the on Funky Grandpa Cardigan. This is a pattern by La Maison Rililie. The button band has an i-cord bind off and Kelly isn't sure whether it will lay flat or not. If, after blocking, it still isn't laying flat, she will need to experiment with needles that are either larger or smaller. She isn't sure which direction will solve the issue.
Kelly has also been working on her poncho and is past the halfway point! She is using Andrea Mowry's Om Shawl pattern.
"Advent-ewes"Marsha had quite the train adventure trying to get to Spokane to visit friends. Hours of delay had her almost hysterical! On the positive side, it gave her plenty of time to finish her Rodeo Drive Poncho.
She had planned to visit a couple of Spokane yarn shops. One was closed while she was there. Another that she saw from the train, The Knitting Factory, turned out to be a music concert venue and nightclub. The third was a charm, Sew E-Z Too is a knitting and quilting shop and she was able to visit.
