Shout outs and Thank Yous

Thank you to the following Ravelrers for posting introductions in our group:

Funny story about an interesting coincidence. Samjam158 is from the same town that my husband grew up in and not too far from where I was born and raised (about 5 miles down the road).  I’m not originally from Virginia, but rather a small town on the east central coast of FL (the Space Coast is what we call it.)  You may have heard of Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral, well I’m from that general area.

The Other Stuff


Knitting

WIPs

Stalled

FOs

  • Nothing this week

Stash Expansions

  • Nothing here either

Spinning

On the bobbin

  • 100% Corridale in dark blue and crabapple from Louet purchased from Uniquities in Vienna, VA.  I think I’m going to 3-ply this yarn.  I’ve spun up 3 oz. on bobbin #1 and 1 oz on bobbin #2, so I have a bit to go.

In a Hank

  • Nothing finished this week

Stash Expansions

Sewing

On the Hanger

  • Butterick 5722 – Women’s Top, Dress, Skirt and Pants.  Blouse “B” (sleeves finished in Blouse A style)

On the Machine

  • Nothing right now

Next Up

Hiking (Travel)

  • We’re going on an Alaskan Cruise in May/June and I’ll be in Seattle and Juneau so I would love some suggestions for local yarn and fiber shops where I could stop and pick up some souvenirs.
