Ep 73: Summer of Sweaters

Kelly Locke


More sweater knitting for the end of summer. Two kinds of linen and a cotton/llama blend--we're trying all the fibers! We also talk about organizing strategies for the transition into the school year.  And big news!  There's a new website with a shop!

Marsha's Projects

Marsha has started a new shawl with her Stonehedge Crazy!   The yarn is fabulous.

The shawl is the Among the Shadows and she is making it for the second time.

Marsha has also finished her sweater using the pattern 221 Summer Cardigan by Diane Soucy.

And since she has finished one sweater, she is ready to cast on another using the linen that she has been swatching.  After swatching the linen biased so she is looking for a pattern that will mitigate the tendency to bias.

Kelly's Projects

Kelly has finished very little.  One Mother Bear and one swatch of handspun are all she has to show for two weeks.  The swatch will be submitted along with her county fair entries.  It is a precursor to the Orca Run sweater that she has planned once the fair is over in September.

She has started a new linen tee since the last episode.  She is making the Summer Fjord and the construction is really interesting.
