Monday Mentions

1. The extreme blocking worked wonders on the Getting Warmer cowl (Rav link). I sent a photo to the silent auction winner and she loves it. It is heading to Indiana this week. Yarn is Kenyan merino that I kettle dyed with acid dyes in vermillion. I will probably make another one for myself eventually.

2. I attended my first Rust Belt Fiber Shed meeting tonight. It was a meeting of natural dyers. It was awesome.

3. My friend James started a new podcast for people who want to learn how to podcast. He’s a genius. Listen here. I will listen and then maybe I will understand what to do with The Just Craft.

4. I will be attending the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival with Sarah and friends! I bought my plane ticket today! I don’t have any local knitting friends to go to fiber shows with. Isn’t that sad? I have local friends but none I would subject to a day weekend long fiber event. So I am saving up for Wisconsin!

5. I’m adding another KAL to my rotation. Magpie Fibers is hosting a Beav-a-long! 🤣 Learn more here.

  1. A lot of fun stuff going on, Alissa. The cowl is perfect! How great that you can go to a festival with Sarah! I haven’t been in a yarn shop in over a year. I did not know you had a podcast. I look forward to listening to yours and James’. I found the information about the beav-a-long very funny. There are GORGEOUS yarns on that site!
