Ep 51: Full On Poncho Attitude




Beautiful Autumn days, ongoing projects, an Enzo the Poodle update, and some of our listeners' knitting are the topics of this episode.  Marsha is coming to you from Seattle, as usual.  Kelly is coming to you from a tin can somewhere on the Central Coast of California.  :-)  She forgot to plug in her microphone and was recorded through the not-so-good computer microphone.  Sorry for this rookie podcasting error!

Project Updates

Shortly after the last episode Kelly started to work on Opus the Octopus.  He was the perfect project for her conference knitting.



One sleeve of the Handspun Funky Grandpa was finished so that the needles could be re-purposed for the octopus, but that was the only other project she touched in the last two weeks. 

Marsha continues to work on Frank's Spirit Yarn Afghan and has passed the halfway point. She'll be starting the ninth color of thirteen. 

She gives her hands a break by working on her Havasu Falls Shawl

Future Plans

The Ewes share information about listeners' projects (including a beautiful shawl, a great poncho, a sweater,  sock yarn scrap pajama pants, a knit dress and others) and they talk about future knitting plans.  Kelly plans a second Edie tee shirt if she can find the yarn. A crochet sweater by Michele DuNaier is on deck next.  It is The Curious Case of the Crazy-Stitch Cardigan.  She'll be using a cobalt blue bamboo and cotton blend yarn, Valley Yarns Southwick from Webs.


Kelly's final project in the planning stages is the Om Shawl, which is really a form of poncho! There are three colors of Neighborhood Fiber Company gray that will go into this poncho.


Upcoming Events:

Kelly will be attending Lambtown in Dixon, California on October 1-2, 2016.

  1. Hi Kelly! When will you be at Lambtown? I am planning to be there at about 9 on Sat so I can attend the judging and auction. Hope to see you there :)

  2. Exciting news about the bees! I noticed the tin can in the beginning, but it didn't seem to be a problem later on.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad it didn't bother you throughout the episode. It was driving me crazy as I edited, but I know that I am more critical about my voice. If it had been Marsha, I would have thought, "no big deal." :-)
