Projects: Current, Finished, Fantasy and Wearing

  • Current. Knitting on a podcast hat. 
  • Finished. Spun a pound of Targhee wool dyed by Kim Dyes Yarn  

  • Current. A second gift Hot Chocolate Hat knit in yarn made out of a friend's sheep. This one is knit at the next smaller size in the pattern since the yarn gauge ended up being closer to a heavy aran weight than a worsted weight. 
  • Current. Still more socks the Regia 4-ply.

Topic of the Show: Shave 'Em to Save 'Em

In this swatch, Sherri and Tamara talk about the Shave 'Em to Save 'Em incentive by The Livestock Conservancy to use rare breed wool to help promote the breeds and provide increased business for the shepherds. The program is cool and the passport for different breeds looks like fun. Both Sherri and Tamara were most excited about the ability to search the online breeder's directory that allows you to search by product type (like yarn or fiber) local to your area.

That's Entertainment 

  • Watching and listening to Live Music at the City Park walking distance from her home!!! She always takes her socks along to knit which is one of the reasons she is knitting so many socks this summer.
