Ep 81: Compost Bins and Combo Spins

Kelly Locke

Monogamous sweater knitting, a little yarn dyeing for the Two Ewes Shop, and some weaving homework for Marsha are all featured this episode.

Marsha's projects

Marsha is now obsessed with knitting with her combo spin yarn. She is knitting Beeline by Heidi Kirrmaier.

She has renamed the project Compost Spin after  listener GloriaMcC from Michigan reported that she had been hearing this project as the Compost Bin project.  Combo Spin... Compost Bin.  Guess its a good thing we have show notes!

Kelly's projects

Kelly is back to working on the Handspun Cowichan sweater.  She has the body done and is ready to work the sleeves and collar.

Like Marsha, she has been focused only on this knitting project over the last two weeks.

Kelly has been doing some dyeing.  Right after Thanksgiving new colors were added to the shop and new items for spinners are coming in the upcoming week. (Hand pulled combed top, targhee lamb batts...) The shopsmall2017 discount code is good for free shipping until December 10.  One of our listeners has created a beautiful shawl from our textured Raucous Rambouillet yarn.  It's a great example of pattern and yarn pairing.  She used the the Among the Shadows pattern that Marsha has used twice now and created the Blueberry & Cream Shawl.

Kelly and Marsha talk a little about how Marsha can get ready to start her Winter Weave Along project.  Marsha will be selecting yarns that she wants to use to make a sampler on her 4-harness table loom.


If you are in the Seattle area, save the date for the Two Ewes Seattle Crafternoon on January 6, 2018.

One of our spinning friends from the Spinning With Friends Ravelry Group, Eileen aka Leprkon on Ravelry, had a serious stroke in September and her community is having a fundraiser to help with her medical and therapy costs.  If you'd like to contribute you can send to the address on this flyer.  As soon as an online donation link is available, we will share it in the Two Ewes Ravelry Group.
