Marsha’s Projects

Sweet Baby Cardigan by Alena Byers: Calling it finished! Will get buttons in the next few days. Used Blue Sky Fiber Printed Organic Cotton and Hikoo by Skacel Simplicity Solid. 

Gray and forest green baby jacket

Mountain High Combo Spin #3: Finished but I’m heartbroken. Sweater felted when I blocked it. Such beautiful handspun and it headed to the trash. I’ve lost my mojo.

Socks: The Artful Ewe Clackamas. Finished first sock and cast on second sock.

Kelly’s Projects

The Wine and Cheese socks are finished.

Burgundy and gold hand knit socks

Mother Bears: Two more crocheted bears finished. (5 total)


Five crocheted bears all stand together on a shelf.

Added another strip and a half to the woven squares blanket

Almost finished carding about a pound of Jazzman (CVM x Merino x Columbia). Soft gray with some brown. This is a pretty fine fleece, very clean and well sheared. 

Talk about my carding technique and other options for fleece prep. (Hand cards, combing, flicking.)

Weaving project: Pride dishtowels decided they needed to get on the loom.

red, orange, green and blue threads warped onto a table loom.
