Marsha’s Projects: I cast on Summer Fjord by Trin-Annelie using Quince & Co Sparrow in three colors. Kelly and our friend Janis both have yarn to cast this on, too. We got it last summer in the clearance bin at Tolt.  I’m working on foot of first Arne & Carlos sock. These ultra bright socks are for my brother, Mark. I recently picked up a Simple Shawl by Jane Hunter that I started March 2018! Using Michael’s CWD in San Francisco Fog, to put it back in the knitting rotation, but I haven’t made much progress since the last episode. This will probably stay on the back burner for awhile since I am swatching with Elemental Affects Cormo for the Holey Comfort cardigan by Hinterm Ste

    It was a fun chat this episode after a long week. Knitting, old cookbooks, vintage Norwegian sweaters, and a few tangents! We also announced the winner of the Cosmic Crisp giveaway.

Then I picked up a Simple Shawl by Jane Hunter that I started March 2018! The yarn I'm using is Michael’s CWD in San Francisco Fog. There's a new project coming, too. I'm swatching with Elemental Effects Cormo for either Holey Comfort by Hinterm Stein or Waits by Bristol Ivy and I'm swatching with North Ronaldsay DK for a Phrancko custom sweater for Ben.  Kelly’s Projects I started a pair of socks using handspun Babydoll Southdown yarn.

This was another live episode so Kelly had the opportunity to “show and tell” her 1958 Lace Cardigan. This sweater was started before I was much of a knitter and had to be put away for quite a long time while my knitting skills caught up to my plans!  The discussion about how little instruction there was in old patterns reminded Marsha of a series of videos by Arne and Carlos about Norwegian sweaters and their history.  Marsha’s Projects: I finished my Dusk Into Twilight Shawl by Rosemary Hill. I used Two Ewes Fiber Adventures Replenish Rambouillet fingering dyed by Kelly in three colors, Bourbon and Suede, Falling Leaves, and Aquamarine.  Finished the heel flap of secon

Using Yarns From the Plain sock yarn. We talked so much in the last episode I forgot to mention that I cast on a pullover called Isle au Haut by Beatrice Perron Dahlen. I’m using Imperial Yarn Columbia which is an aran weight in the color Juniper Green. The yarn has lots of knots. About 10-15 per skein. Really surprising that the company thought this was okay. Maybe this is why the yarn was on sale! My bust is 40” and the

Their hotel was right near the large Church in Rekjavik-Hallgrimskirkja Church. Rekjavik Food Adventures! Marsha and Kim recommend a food tour as a great way to orient yourself to the city and find out about restaurants you can go back to during your stay in Rekjavik. They visited a famouse Hot Dog stand in Rekjavik, had a fantastic Artic Char at Messin, ate Icelandic rye bread, Lava cake, ice cream, and frozen carmel corn.  They bought yarn at a few places including the Handknitting Association of Iceland and FK Supermarket in Iceland. All grocery stores should stock yarn! Wouldn’t that be great?  They went to more yarn stores, including Handprjon Yarn Shop, Litla Yarn Shop, and Alafoss Yarn Shop.  One of the yarns they saw was a Polish h

I’m still hooking along on the Dew Drop Shawl crochet shawl by Silke Terhorst.  My project is using a gradient handspun that I made from a Loop Bump in teal, purple, and gray. Once the sweater is finished I’ll work on this more and get it finished.  Stashbuster Weaving. Warp problems are fixed! Crowd-sourcing works!  Several listeners helped with this problem.

The Uncle’s Eggnog When Robert’s Uncle Phillip died, his dad gave him an envelope of family pictures that Uncle Phillip had. The eggnog recipe was in the envelope so presumably it was part of Uncle Phillip’s things. Uncle Phillip and Uncle Jerry had lived together for some years before Uncle Jerry died so we call it The Uncle’s Eggnog. We really don’t know where it came from or how they used it.  I cut it down to a household size that makes about two quarts before you add in the eggwhites. After adding in the eggwhites it makes about 3 quarts, but if it sits in the refrigerator for a time before you give it away to friends the eggs will deflate and you can use the third quart to make the first two quart jars
