Marsha and Kelly announce the winners in the Front Range Bags giveaway. Thanks again to Nancy for offering one of her bags for a prize! If you aren't the winner, don't despair. She has generously offered a coupon code for 15% off to Two Ewes listeners! Listen to the podcast or visit our Ravelry Group for details. Then go shop for a Front Range Bag!
Marsha had quite a bit of knitting time while at the hospital with her son. Ben had a bad bicycle accident, but is now doing much better. While at the trauma center she made lots of progress on the Mark's Crazy Scarf out of Stonehedge Crazy (mill ends).

Kelly is still working on her Color Affection (also by Veera Valimaki).
During a Veteran's Day camping trip in The Clubhouse, Kelly also made progress on the Hippo (pattern by Heidi Bears).

Alas, not enough progress to be able to claim a finished project! She also brought the drum carder so she could continue her fleece processing obsession. The most recent batts are natural colored California Variegated Mutant blended with hand-dyed mohair locks. Both are from very deep stash.

The Indie Designer Gift-Along starts on Thursday, November 19. Over 5,000 independent designers have their patterns available for 25% off. Knitters and crocheters who have purchased these patterns can participate in a 6-week Gift-Along between November 19 and December 31. See the Indie Gift Along group on Ravelry to check out the pattern bundles and the GAL threads.
A few crochet patterns that Kelly is considering are:
Etheria cowl by Julia Trice
True Love shawl and Latticework Cardigan by Michele DuNaier
Geisha's Finest stole by Tanja Osswald
Both our CAL and the GAL end on New Year's Eve so there is definitely some double dipping potential here!
