Projects: Current, Finished, Fantasy and Wearing

  • Current. Spinning and she shared about how much fiber to buy for different types of projects. 

  • Current. Knitting generic adult-sized simple stockinette stitch hats out of leftover sock yarn. They've been extra busy with concerts and events so she needed simple and easy to-go knitting to take with her to all the things.  

Topic of the Show: Gulf Coast Native

In this swatch, Sherri and Tamara talk about Gulf Coast Native sheep breed and the yarn made out of it by a local grower - Sand Hill Thicket. They both called it Gold Coast Native for at least some of the episode. Ack. Sherri really, really loves this yarn and she was thrilled to find it available locally. Tamara got side-tracked reading all about the sheep and didn't get as much swatching done as she wanted for this episode. She mentioned the information from Oklahoma State on the breed during the podcast so wanted to share that link too.

That's Entertainment 

  • Re-watching the Bones tv series on Hulu. Turns out it has 12 seasons. 
  • Watching Gardener's World on BBC Two. It can be found on Brit Box or Amazon Prime. She's enjoying it but would really love suggestions for similar shows in her growing area.
