I bought a fountain Pen: we found the Pilot Metropolitan at the UW bookstore. We also found J. Herbin ink and tried to pronounce them. 

Finished the socks that I had been working on for awhile. Used Garnstudio Drops Fabel.

Atlas (Ravelry link) by Jared Flood using Navia Tradition. The pattern is also available at his website. Kelly and I had a long discussion about the sweater while poor Mark had to wear it and listen to us try and figure out what I need to do. 

Still knitting on the tea cozy pattern, Nanny Meier’s Tea Cozy by Amelia Carlsen. I am using Cascade 220 Heather in Red Wine Heather (9489) and green Irelande (2429).

Garter Squish Blanket by Stephen West. Wanted to use “spirit yarn” to make a blanket for my brother that he had seen at Close Knit in Portland called Noromania Blanket. Turns out we remembered the blanket very differently and he was correct. So, that will be another blanket project. Decided to go ahead and dye the yarn for my second Garter Squish. Kelly helped by dye all the yarn. The main color is a gradient of a terra cotta. The contrasting yarns we dyed with short color repeats and long color repeats. 

While Kelly was in meetings I drove into Aberdeen, Washington and visited Weird Sisters Wool Emporium owned by Megan Blackburn and Chelsea Barr who dye all the yarn. Megan used to own Little Fish Stitches. I made a pair of sock and the Walk Along tee with her yarm. Bought a skein of sock weight yarn for Kelly from the “Bob Ross: Happy Little Mistakes” bin. Their shop is a little hard to find on the second floor of a business office but do persevere or check out their website.

Also visited Harbor Bead and Craft in Hoquiam, Washington. A nice craft store also a bit hard to find but worth the effort.

Dark Green Forest by Christina Korber-Reith. I am using a terra cotta yarn that is a dark red overdyed over the light brown color of the CVM yarn. Working on the first sleeve but I’m almost done.

Spinning wheel came with me on the trip and I’ve gotten a little spinning done on my Oxford singles. I think they will become a two ply.

  • Could you steek the yoke after the colorwork and add more length, then Kitchener back together so the sweater is bigger in the armpits?

  • Hi Kelly and Marsha… Just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart… I about fell off the elliptical machine at the gym when I heard my name called to win the prize for the sheep pillow… When I heard what price it was I thought wow that would be so much fun to win a little sheep pillow, and when I did, I got so much adrenaline on that elliptical machine that all the pain in my legs went away and I went faster than I’ve ever gone with a big smile on my face but nobody could see it because I had a mask on… lol
    I was going to enter last year and I worked really hard on spinning a skein of yarn for your contest but the terrible fires came and we got evicted from our home the day that your contest ended and I didn’t get my yarn entered… Love everything about your podcast… Always keeps my spirits up when I’m working out or doing dishes… please never stop what you’re doing because you have been my two best friends for a long time and didn’t even know it! 💚😁🥂

    I’m not sure what I do about my contact information…I guess I will look for Kelly’s or Marshes email address unless you let me know a better way… Or maybe this is where I leave it… I will figure it out thanks again so so much!!!
