Ep 109 recorded 5/11/22

Segments this week include: FOs, Wips, Spinning, Out and About, and I’ve Got Sunshine.  A note on showlinks – all links to Ravelry are clearly labelled as such and all links for yarn are directly to the dyer’s website.

Lots of knitting this week, as COVID invaded our house.  

FOs – FO 2 weeks in a row, weird!

48-st socks for J.   First sock done.  Bamboo Pop Sock in Sunset Colorway.

WIPs

As You Wish MKAL by Mary Annarella of Lyrical Knits.  This is a Princess Bride themed mystery knitalong that will eventually result in a rectangular shawl.  I’m in Clue 3!  This shawl is sooooo much fun to knit. 

Winona by Brenda Castiel in handspun from Hipstrings.  

48-st socks for J, finished toe of 2nd sock.  Bamboo Pop Sock in Sunset Colorway.

52-st sock for E in red sock yarn.  Allegro by Wisdom Yarns, correction: distributed by Universal Yarns, not made by Universal Yarns.  May be discontinued.

Swatching for 2 new projects, Green Crochet Dress by Krinichka and Mermaid Skirt by Concept Creative, both are Ukranian designers.

Juliana top by Linda’s Craftique, for once worked in the called-for yarn – Neve  by Juniper Moon Farms.  This pattern is bottom-up.  I finished the ribbing and am starting up the body.

Spinning

I’m spinning handspun yarn for the winner of my drawing for the Knitathon.  Fiber is 90’s School Supplies cotton from Hipstrings.
