The Two Ewes are back home after a fun weekend at The Black Sheep Gathering. This year the festival was held in Albany, Oregon June 29th - July 1st. Kelly and Marsha discuss the highlights of festival.
Marsha had twelve hours of knitting on the round-trip train ride from Seattle plus knitting time the festival. She is almost ready to start the ribbing and short row shaping on her Summer Fjord tee by Trin-Annelie.
At the BSG Marsha fed her addiction with more braids for a Combo Spin 4 this time in red.
She also bought two braids to go with a white, grey and yellow braid she bought a year ago. She not sure how she plans to spin these braids. Will it be her Combo Spin 5?
Marsha gave into temptation and bought a beautiful Corriedale x Romeldale fleece in steel gray.
Kelly also bought a Corriedale x Romeldale fleece, hers is white. And she succumbed to a beautiful steel gray Romney fleece that was for sale in the non-judged market. Her purchases at the BSG were restrained because after the Gathering she picked up a Great Wheel style wheel that she was buying from a fellow adventurer. The wheel was made by Bill Wyatt in 2001.
In addition to exciting additions to the spinning wheel flock, Kelly was able to make great progress on two projects. The Argyle socks are coming along nicely and the Clover, Bee, and Revery Pillow is almost done!
