I am using Cascade 220 Heather in Red Wine Heather (9489) and green Irelande (2429). I've knit about half of the second side. Pebblebrook Beanie by Wish Upon a Hook (Ravelry link). I started this beanie using Little Sheep in The Big Woods. I was trying to finish this for our Two Ewes Crochet Along, but after ripping it out three times, I admitted defeat and set the project aside. Meadow Stripe Socks using Patons Kroy Sock in the colorway, Meadow Stripes and Lang Yarns Jawoll Superwash fingering for the heels and toes. Finished the first sock and worked on the second sock. Quick Switch Hat by AbbyeKnits. My son liked the hat so much I cast on another for him using Meeker Street Olives Outerwear DK in the colorway Sage. Phrancko Designs crew neck from Phrancko.com by Frank Jernigan. I'm using my green and brown handspun merino. I joined under the arms and knit five stripe repeats (3 rows brown, 6 rows green). Looking at the amount of yarn I have left I was concerned I would not have enough for green. I called Kelly and we designed stripes using Fibonacci Sequence. The plan now for the stripe sequence will be: Four repeats of 3 brown, 6 green Three repeats of 5 brown, 6 green Two repeats of 8 brown, 6 green The ribbing will be brown. After the body is complete I will knit the collar in green and then assess the yarn situation and decide how to finish the sleeves. Kelly's Projects Last minute crocheting: I finished the Pebblebrook Beanie (Ravelry link) out of my Invictus club yarn from last year. It's a green and gray and yellow variegated yarn and it turned out great. It will join the other charity hats that I have to get sent out.  I also finished two crocheted Mother Bears. One was half done and I found it during the stash tossing and finished it up (Ravelry link). Then I got inspired to make one last one (Ravelry link) to go with the last tag I had. These need to get into the mail, too.  Two more crochet projects were finished for this episode. I made a cat bed (Ravelry link) using lots of my spirit yarn and then fulled it a little. The starting point for the pattern was Crochet Round Cat Bed by Humbug Designs (Ravelry link). This will go on the porch for Minnie to sleep on. Then I made an ear saver to use with my masks when I'm teaching. The pattern I used was One Button Mask Ear Saver by Robin Kline (Ravelry link). I wear it up near the top of my head, but you can also wear it behind your neck. I've already worn it for several hours and it was comfortable and stayed put. I'm still working on a pair of socks (Ravelry link) in Bob Ross Happy Little Mistakes yarn from Weird Sisters Wool Emporium in Aberdeen. I'm using the stitch pattern from Blueberry Waffle socks.  Finally, I started a sockhead hat (pattern by Kelly McClure) using some leftovers from the Rachel pullover.  Crochet Along Thank you to everyone who participated.

Kelly 0:43 Hi, Marsha. How are you? Marsha 0:45 I'm doing well. Kelly 0:46 I'm doing great too. I have been decluttering, purging. Marsha 0:52 You know you've been doing you've been tossing of the stash Kelly 0:55 Tossing of the stash. That's right. That is what actually I am doing. Marsha 0:58 Is any tossing going on? Or is it just been reorganizing the stash? Well, let's just talk about it. Okay, so tell me everything Kelly 1:05 Last time we... last time we recorded I think I had already started. I had taken everything downstairs and laid it out on the studio floor, all the knitting yarn from various places in the house, because I keep it in various places. I had dug stuff out. Then I decided I needed to move it upstairs to the spare room where I could close the door and nobody could see it. Nobody meaning Robert couldn't see it. Just because I wanted to leave it messy for a while. And he likes things cleaned up and neat. So yes, and he was cleaning the living room, taking down the tree throwing away Christmas ornaments. So we did do some some tossing of the Christmas ornaments. So you know I was in that mood. So I brought it all upstairs and I laid it out on a tablecloth. It's about the size of a double bed sheet, flat sheet. And then I started organizing it and I did a little bit more organizing today. It's been out for more than... well for two weeks essentially. It's been sitting here inspiring me and also making me wonder about myself! [laughing] Marsha 2:21 okay, well Dr. Marsha is here listen to it. So tell me all about it. Kelly 2:26 Okay, well, I decided to-- we talked a little bit about what how I should go about the organization process and and so the first thing I ended up doing was taking all of the commercial skeins, commercial hand dyed, well, just commercial skeins that I had purchased on purpose. I had obtained on purpose. And I put-- It ended up that -- I thought this was true. And I was right. It's a very small batch! Not quite as small as I thought. Because I still have all that Rauna. The Finnish yarn that we got crazy about the year I was making argyle socks and we got all these different color combinations. So I had quite a bit of that. I had quite a bit of that still unused, but it fits in-- I have this wooden, like rice basket I guess it's called. I got it at a garden show. It's a wooden basket that came from, I think it came from--they said it came from Vietnam or someplace. Anyway. It's not that big. And it fits all of it. Marsha 3:03 Mm hmm. Kelly 3:42 So that's my like, "I got this intentionally" kind of yarn. And then the rest of it is a combination of handspun, leftovers, some of which are handspun, and spirit yarn. And then a little bit. like a small amount of like farm yarn that I didn't include in the commercial skeins. It's all natural colors and it went-- it seemed like it went better with the batch of yarn that was all handspun so I put it in that batch. but I... you know... So I have. ..I have over 13 skeins of Rug Yarn plus extra balls leftover from previous rug projects. I have five skeins of extra bulky yarn. I have over six skeins of white handspun-- you know natural creme handspun. Seven skeins of cotton handspun for a cotton project. I have about six skeins of luxury-- what I would consider to be luxury yarn. Some of that is leftovers. There's silk and silk and cotton and silk and wool angora, and that kind of stuff. I have three skeins of handspun from commercial dyed braids. That's it. And lots of leftovers. Some Wensleydale skeins, some suffolk skeins, a bunch of CVM leftovers. Anyway, so what am I going to do with it? The problem with that is, what am I gonna do with it? You know, like I was thinking with the handspun like, I don't want to get rid of it. I mean, I don't want to throw it, right? I don't want to toss it. I want it to be used but when I think about using the rest of the yarn from all the handspun sweaters that I made, and I've got quite a bit of yarn, I think I have five handspun sweaters that I have leftovers for. And when I think about you know making a hat or I can make mitts or I can make a scarf. Like that feels like making an adult layette. [laughing] Marsha 6:19 Yes, funny! [laughing] Kelly 6:26 I just, I don't feel like that's an adult thing-- to wear a hat and a sweater and mitts and socks that all match. Marsha 6:37 Yeah. So well because it-- because I even sometimes question if I have on hand knit socks, hand knit sweater, hand knit hat. Like then put a scarf on it seems like it's too much. Like too much hand knit. And they don't even match. So if it's all matching like... and you don't want to make something for Robert because that's not cool having matching--husband and wife matching outfits. [laughing] Kelly 7:02 Out of the CVM that I made the Orcas run sweater, I did make him a hat with the Orca pattern on it, which he likes. But yeah, we don't actually dress alike! [laughing] I have made some charity hats with some leftover handspun but you know it's not washable. So anyway, that's kind of my my, my dilemma with this yarn. I like it and I want to use it but I don't know what I'm going to use it for. What I did do though, is that a lot of the partial skeins I did collect them all. And I put them into my mother bear kit for making Mother Bears and I had... I realized when I did that, that I had a half a bear in the bag. And I haven't made a mother bear in a really long time. And I realized why when I put the additional yarn into the bag. It's because I was making a bear and I was using like three skeins of different weird... some handspun leftovers to get to the right weight of yarn for the bear. You know it's holding two strands together holding three strands together, running out because I was using these little you know, hazelnut sized balls of yarn, and then having to splice in the new one. I thought, why was I making my life so hard? Why not when I get down to that little amount of yarn? Or if I have something that's really so fine that it doesn't make a good bear? Like why would I put it in the kit. So I... so I cleaned up that bear Mother Bear kit put in new, threw away some stuff from there, put in new yarn into the Mother Bear kit and then I actually got inspired to finish that bear and make it make another bear which that's getting into my projects. But I did get a little bit inspired by stuff. So that was good. But it does kind of show me just some kind of gaps in what I have or overages overages in skeins. Like do I really need this much of my leftovers? No, because I don't know what I'm gonna do with them. And why do I spin so much yarn for a sweater? I guess because I don't know how much I'm going to need and I don't want to run out. Kelly 7:02 Well, actually, I would say that's true. I for me, that's true. Okay, so right now I'm knitting with with my handspun which I'll talk about this project later on, but I didn't have enough for a sweater. I'm always trying to do enough for a sweater but I didn't have enough so I had to spin up another color to make stripes. So I mean I think too, with your spinning, you're not... You're spinning the yarn to be spinning the yarn. Kelly 7:10 Yeah Marsha 7:24 Not spinning the yarn necessarily to make a sweater. Isnt' it true? Kelly 8:40 Right. Marsha 8:40 You talked about this before is that the fiber tells you what it wants to be. What type of yarn it wants to be. And you spin that yarn and then you figure out what project right? You're just...you're caught up in the, you know, you're spinning yarn, you're not thinking about what to make Kelly 10:26 Yeah, and the difference too, is like, you're spinning braids. Marsha 10:32 Mm hmm. Kelly 10:33 And I'm just spinning what comes off my drum carder. Marsha 10:36 Right. Kelly 10:37 And so you know, if you have a full fleece, and you just card and card and card, then you feel like you have to spin everything you carded. And that might be more than what you need for this sweater. So I am not complaining at all! I have a wealth... A wealth of yarn, including a wealth of my own handspun. But it was good to see for example, with the Rug Yarn, like, Okay, I have really some really nice Rug Yarn. But a lot of it is leftover from a wall hanging project that I did that was in greens and grays. Mostly. And so that's what I have most of-- green and gray. And then I have that and a little bit of Burgundy. And then I have the combo spin that I did. That's more blues. But it's all really super dark. And I think I need something light. Because otherwise the values are all going to be the same and whatever pattern I do in a rug, a punch needle piece, is gonna... you won't really see the pattern, I think. Marsha 11:47 So they're too dark to overdye another color. Kelly 11:50 Yes. Marsha 11:52 Okay. Kelly 11:53 In fact, a lot of them are dark gray overdyed. Dark green, dark gray overdyed with burgundy. Yeah, yeah, they're too dark to overdye. So I just--I need to spin more rug yarn in a lighter color. [laughing] Marsha 12:09 Okay. So I'm going to inject here with a few... Dr. Marsha has a few comments. I'm not a licensed therapist. No, as you say. So we... Marsha 12:22 Marsha I'm going to interrupt you. However, you are a licensed yarn stasher. Marsha 12:32 Yes,[laughing]... some of the yarn from your... the adult layette yarn? [laughing] All that leftover sweater yarn and whatnot. Can-- and I don't know what the weight of it is. It's pretty fine. It's not like it's worsted weight. But anyway, here's my point, can it be combined to be my go-to project, the garter squish blanket. It can be combined in some ways to make doubled up or added to... let me just back up. This is not how you have to do the garter squish. But the idea is you have one main color that goes through the whole blanket that's worsted weight. And then you have you keep changing out the other worsted weight yarn that you're carrying along with it to make the stripes or the pattern or whatever you decide to do. But it doesn't have to be that way. You know, right. So I don't know, if you have enough yarn that could be enough of a background color? Or, like my case where I didn't have enough yarn. There was sort of that camel colored yarn that I was using as the background. But I didn't have enough it in the same shade to do the whole thing. So we did a gradient. Do you have enough of the handspun that could be the background color? That maybe you overdye to make it more similar and do like a gradient? And then you know what I'm getting at? Kelly 13:59 Yeah, yeah, Marsha 14:00 just need to spin more yarn to well, to use up the sweater bits. Kelly 14:08 Yeah, that's an idea. Marsha 14:11 If you have a lot of the... Because didn't you say one sweater you have like three skeins leftover? Kelly 14:18 Something like that. Marsha 14:21 Can it be.. is that the sort of terracotta color for dark green forest? Kelly 14:27 Yeah, I have three skeins of that plus a ball, plus another skein that's undyed of the exact same yarn. Marsha 14:36 So even though you have say--you have three possibly four skeins of that yarn dyed that terracotta color, can you overdye it so make something? Now it's a pretty deep terracotta but can you make one like brown and one burgundy or something and then use those as the contrasting color for a background color. Kelly 14:59 You Yeah, that's a good idea. That's a really good idea. Marsha 15:05 Because you sent me a picture of all these bits. Kelly 15:11 You can put it in the show notes if you want. Marsha 15:14 I'm looking at...you have a lot of natural colored yarns that maybe you could just dye. Well and what is that? So, this is not good podcasting because people cannot see this picture. But the picture of the... there's a whole bunch of natural colored yarn. That's undyed. It looks like it's your handspun undyed which I don't know what the yarn is. Okay, so I'm looking at the picture that shows the right hand side of the sheet in the lower right hand corner. Kelly 15:41 Oh, uh huh. Marsha 15:43 I don't know how much is there. But if you could just take all those and you could maybe dye that if that's enough for your background color. Kelly 15:49 That might be. There are six skeins. The two balls in the front of that picture are bulky, so they won't work. But there are six skeins of the Oxford that I spun this summer and three skeins of the Columbia that I spun the summer before, I think in the summer spin-in. So there are six skeins there. They're roughly the same, they're three ply, roughly the same weight. And also they have the same kind of the same feel to them. They're not identical, but they would go together in a project. That's a really good idea I hadn't thought about a blanket of handspun Kelly 15:50 Well that garter squish is just a great way to use up a lot of yarn, because you're using it held double, even if it's worsted weight, you're holding it double. Right? Kelly 16:39 And, and people had mentioned, people had been mentioning that, you know, like, oh, that sounds fun. And I thought it sounded fun, too. But the thing I always thought was I don't have enough. I don't... that sounds funny. I don't have enough of the same kind of thing to be able to do it. But I do if I think about my handspun in using the sweater leftovers. Marsha 17:01 Mm hmm. Kelly 17:02 I do have enough, I think, Oh, that's interesting. Okay. Marsha 17:07 And then I'm, I'm going to... I bought a pattern. So it's Lily Scrap Blanket. Kelly 17:13 Oh, I'm going to look it up, too. Marsha 17:15 The Designer is Jen Peck. And it's like a chevron pattern. It's knit with fingering weight. And I don't know what all... I mean, this may not work that great. And so what you do is you basically take all of your sock weight scraps, and you just wind them into one big ball. Just randomly wind all the colors into a big giant ball. And you just loosely knot them together. So you can either-- you can put them together like with a long tail and then choose to weave them in. Or you can put just a loose knot. And so when you get to that point, you can take it apart and rotate it if you want, you know, spit splice it. And so I'm looking at the pattern because I actually printed this out and I've been gathering up my yarn. It's a free pattern. Kelly 18:01 Yeah, I'm looking at it right now takes about 1000 to 1400 yards. Marsha 18:07 Yeah, so it's a nice pattern, because it's all... it makes a chevron. And as I say, I have been ...all my socks scraps I've been saving to make this blanket. And then also I have skeins of yarn --sock weight yarn-- that I bought that I don't think I'm ever going to make socks out of it. And so I was thinking just breaking those apart and putting them into the blanket. Kelly 18:34 Right. Marsha 18:35 But anyway, that's another idea. I don't know if it's the right weight. But maybe, Kelly 18:42 yeah, yeah, actually, that would work. Because all of my handspun, I mean, it's the same-- the Targi lamb is heavier, but the rest of my handspun is all about the same weight. Mm hmm. That's an interesting idea. Or holding them double. And then in some places using just one skein of a heavier yarn. Marsha 19:06 Because you know, the other thing, too, is that this is... I don't even think that they have gauge. Yeah, it says gauge is not important for this product. So it wouldn't. So you could just take and you could figure out what your... if you have a heavier weight yarn, you could just figure out how many stitches to the inch you're getting and then figure out, you know, how wide you want? How many you would want to cast on? Well, you know, that whole conversation we've had about using up yarn for the garter squish. I mean, I think the same idea with this is that you're probably not locked into a certain weight of yarn. Right? You'd have to just figure out Kelly 19:41 how to make whatever you're using roughly the same. Marsha 19:44 Right. And then also, didn't somebody in our crochet along did a sort of Chevron shaped blanket and that's crocheted. Yeah, so that's another thought. Kelly 19:54 Yeah. Yeah, it's a really nice. The chevron pattern is a really nice kind of traditional crochet pattern. It reminds me of my grandma's. She made millions, millions of Afghans out of that pattern. Okay, well, that's cool. That gives me some ideas. Marsha 20:14 It's better than putting it in a compost pile. Kelly 20:16 Yes, exactly. Marsha 20:19 And and also, you're getting a new trailer, you might need a blanket for the trailer. Kelly 20:23 Well, that's, that is something that I thought of, too. Yeah. And I want to finish that quilt. That's another thing I dug out was my pieced quilt top. Marsha 20:34 Mm hmm. Kelly 20:35 I think I want to finish that quilt for the trailer. So we'll see. Yeah, that's a good idea. I did get inspired to make one more thing. Moving into my projects. Besides the two bears, I did get inspired. And I used up quite a bit of yarn that have been hanging around for a while to make a cat bed for Minnie. She had been sleeping on a sample woven piece, a narrow piece that I had, we had just folded and positioned it, but it kind of looked messy. And so I made a basket inspired by some of the people in our crochet along. I made a basket for her out of some various old yarns from the weaving room and the early 2000s when those felted bags were kind of popular. Marsha 21:31 Mm hmm. Kelly 21:33 And I had some leftovers from that. And one of the yarns-- I did call you about this, but I wanted to tell people about the yarn that had cow hair in it. I thought that was pretty cool. Marsha 21:45 Yeah, we were gonna talk about this. Kelly 21:47 Yeah. And I didn't I didn't put that in the show notes. But I'll just I'll just say that there was this one singles yarn from Sweden. That yeah, that was like 20% Cow hair. And you looked something up on it. It suggested that it was Highland cow. So that was very interesting. But the main point of this is I got rid of probably...Let's see... I got rid of two balls and three pretty close to full partial skeins. So that made a big dent. One of those little piles that was laying on the tablecloth is gone. Totally gone, because I used it in this cat bed. So that's nice. Marsha 22:38 That's very good. Yeah. Kelly 22:40 And then I felted it so it's sitting on the sitting on the porch right now. So that's a... besides the two Mother Bears that was another finished project. So I finished... Well, I finished the Pebblebrook Beanie that I was working on last time out of the Invictus club yarn. And then I finished the two Mother Bears and I finished the cat bed. So I've been crocheting up a storm during my vacation from school. So it's been really nice. Marsha 23:08 Nice. Yeah. Kelly 23:11 Oh, and then one other crochet project that I did as as a nod to our crochet along which we'll talk about our winners later in the episode. I'm going to be teaching in the classroom on campus this semester, as everyone knows. I'm so excited. And I'm going to have to wear a mask and the masks don't really fit my face very well. And the ear loops, I always have to shorten them. And I usually will shorten them with a little knot. I tried twisting them but that didn't work very well. I tried shortening them, the ear loops, with a little knot. And that works okay, but it makes my ears stick out. And I don't need my ears to stick out any more than they already do. So my vanity! And I saw this ear saver, it's called One Button Mask Ear Saver. And it actually holds for me, I put it going up over the, kind of, the top back of my head. Kind of like the actual N95 masks have two elastics one goes behind your neck and one goes over your head. Marsha 24:25 Mm hmm. Kelly 24:26 And so I use it like that. It connects to the ear pieces, but then it straps across my head. And it works great. And I got to use a button from my button stash. Marsha 24:37 Yay! Very nice. Kelly 24:38 Because you know it's adjustable. You close it with a button. I wore it while I unpacked boxes and threw away stuff. Again another organizing and throwing away project. I worked for about four hours. One day while I unpacked things in my office at school, and it it didn't slip off. It was comfortable. I didn't have that ear pain that you sometimes get from wearing the mask for too long and I didn't have to really adjust it or anything. So it was nice and I get a nice tight fit. It feels like wearing one of those you know the N 95. Because it's actually holding on from the back of my head. So anyway really nice. That was my last crochet--most recent crochet project so... That did not use any stash to speak of. It's a very small project-- took me about an hour, including sewing on the button. So and then I'm working on the pair of socks that I was talking about last time out of the Bob Ross happy little mistakes. And the other thing I got inspired to do... Now this is with leftovers, but I promise never to wear it at the same time as I wear the sweater. [laughing] The the yarn is again, Invictus yarn. It's the Yak Luxe that I used for my Rachel sweater. Marsha 26:08 Mm hmm. Kelly 26:09 And then that yarn that you got me. Marsha 26:12 Oh, right. Kelly 26:12 I can't remember what it was called. But it was anyway, it's all in kind of blue green. Marsha 26:18 It was the yarn from Iceland from Iceland. Kelly 26:21 Yeah. And so anyway, I saw those scraps were sitting there. Pretty significant amounts were leftover. And so I put them all in a knitting bag. And I'm making a Sock Head Hat to replace the Sock Head hat that I have that I have been wearing since 2015. Marsha 26:45 Mm hmm. Kelly 26:47 And it's so faded that it's pretty much unrecognizable--the difference between the outside and the inside of the yarn. So I'm almost to the to the crown decreases on a sock head hat. Marsha 27:02 Whoa, nice. Kelly 27:02 Yeah. So it'll be nice. This will be for you know, going on walks and stuff. Not to match my sweater. AlthoughI guess I could but I don't know. I don't know about that. Marsha 27:13 There's no crime in wearing it to match. Yeah, yeah. What a knitting fashion patrols going to come and arrest you? [laughing] Kelly 27:19 Well, we'll see. Yeah, after I've laughed so much about adult layettes. [laughing] Oh, dear. So yeah, that's my new start-- this sock head pattern. So that's... so I've got two things on the go, the socks and this Sock Head hat pattern. And all the rest of my stuff for this week is finished objects. Marsha 27:46 Yay. Very nice. Kelly 27:48 Yeah. As you say, though, it's still in my house. Actually, the Mother Bears are going and the beanie is going so those are all those are all to be sent away. I haven't done it yet. Marsha 28:04 Well, let me ask you, I'm just going to go back to the tossing of the stash. Because the other thing too, I guess I wanted to ask is, do you even want to-- do you want to make anything out of that yarn? I mean,... Kelly 28:19 The yarn I've already knit with... mm hmm yeah. I don't know. I don't know. I mean, I don't want it to not be knitted. Marsha 28:31 That's another possibility is pass it along to someone else. Kelly 28:34 Yeah, yeah. And let it be their problem Marsha 28:40 Well, it may not be their problem, it's spirit yarn, right? Kelly 28:43 Exactly. Marsha 28:44 I don't think so negatively. Kelly 28:46 That's true. It would be there it would Marsha 28:48 Someone might really want it. Kelly 28:50 It would be their... I don't know it always feels like a great find when you when you find a good spirit yarn so so yeah, it'd be someone else's great find. Marsha 29:01 I'm gonna just say something... This has absolutely nothing to do with knitting but about what other people value or want that we don't want. And I don't know if they have this in the rest of the country but here in Seattle there's this Buy Nothing. It's Buy Nothing and then fill in your neighborhood. And so I live in the Maple Leaf Neighborhood so it's Buy Nothing Maple Leaf. And you cannot sell anything. It's all stuff that you give away for free or you can ask for things. And so I've been posting up things you know, like I got rid of a toaster. Like things that were duplicates that I didn't need, you know, like combining households. So it's surprising to me sometimes the things that I thought actually people would want-- nothing. Crickets. So I just bring it to the goodwill and and then I've also had a problem--and I hope I have no Buy Nothing Maple Leaf listeners listening to this--but sometimes it's really difficult to get people to come I'm in a timely manner to pick things up. And so then it'll be like seven days, and then I'll text and they're like, Oh yeah, yeah. And then they never show up and so I just take it to the goodwill. But I had all those Styrofoam pellets that you use as packing material, and I had been saving it. Because with the new deck, my thought was I was going to put in the bottom half, fill half the pots... I have very heavy concrete pots that were going to go on the deck and so to reduce the weight, I've heard that you actually put in styrofoam pellets in the bottom of your pot. Not loose, but I had bought like a mesh bags that I was going to fill the pellets and put in the bottom of the pots. I ended up not doing that because I used smaller pots. The bigger pots went elsewhere. So I had... I think I had eight trash bags of pellets. Kelly 30:50 Oh man! Marsha 30:51 You can't get rid of that stuff. It just goes in the... it can't be recycled, it just goes in the garbage. Yeah, and so I went to to UPS stores and they wouldn't take it because they can't take it anymore because of the pandemic. I went to a UPS and FedEx store and they wouldn't take it and so I thought I'm just going to post it up on Buy Nothing Maple Leaf. And within 20 minutes a guy said, I think we can use that at work. Let me check with my boss. He checks with his boss and he comes and picks it up that evening. Kelly 31:23 Wow! Marsha 31:23 He comes by and he picks up eight bags of this stuff and I was like all this stuff like it's so weird the stuff that I think has value nobody wants but the stuff that has like it's actually a burden to me. Kelly 31:35 It's acually garbage! Marsha 31:36 It's actually a huge burden to me. It is literally garbage. Well I don't want it to be garbage but if I was to dispose of it I would be considered garbage. But I thought somebody can use it, I just can't find anybody.And he was so prompt he was the fastest of any of my Buy Nothing people. Kelly 31:54 [laughing] Oh my gosh! Marsha 31:55 One man's junk is another man's treasure. Okay, but moving on the the infamous Nanny Meyer tea cozy for Brian. I'm halfway done with the second side. I do a couple rows a dy Kelly 32:09 Oh, yay, Marsha 32:09 So I'm making progress on that. Still working on my socks, nothing to report there. I'm three quarters of the way done with the Quick Switch hat by Abby Knits. The one I'm making for Ben the yarn is Meeker Street Olives Outerwear DK. So I'm working on that intermittently. So I have kind of moved on. What I'm really sort of obsessed with now is this phrancko.com sweater. I don't know what to call it. I'm just calling it my Phrancko Designs sweater or the striped sweater for Ben. But this one I'm making for my son, Ben. And just to remind people, it's the handspun in a kind of a barberpole green and brown and then a solid, three ply Brown. And I talked about this in the last episode that I knew I had measured Ben and entered all the information into phrancko.com. And printed out my pattern. And I forgot last Saturday to join their group, I completely forgot. So I'm going to try... Every Saturday at 2:30 they have a Zoom call. And I'm going to try and join that again. This Saturday, I made a note to myself, because I forgot last Saturday but to show them my progress. But what I started, the reason I had spun the solid brown is I didn't have enough of the brown and green. So I'm just gonna call it the green. But I didn't have enough of that to do an entire sweater. So I spun the brown and the idea, I was gonna do stripes. So Kelly, you and I had a big conversation about this because I had joined under the arms. And at that point, I started-- I did one stripe before I joined under the arms and then joined under the arms and I knit another four brown stripes separated by.... So my was my stripe sequence was going to be three brown, excuse me, three rows of brown, six rows of green, three rows of brown, six rows of green, and I was going to do that all the way through the sweater. But after doing five repeats of that, I got concerned about how much yarn I was going to have. I didn't think I'd have enough green to finish the whole sweater and the arms and the collar and everything. So I called you and we had a really great conversation and of course, your go-to striping sequence, right, which is the Fibonacci sequence. Kelly 34:44 Go Fibonacci. Marsha 34:46 So I ripped back and Kelly how should we describe this? Well, you explain Fibonacci. Kelly 34:53 Okay. So the Fibonacci sequence. It starts with one and then the second number to the sequence is also one. And then the third number of the sequence is two, because if you add one and one, you get two. And then the next number in the sequence, you take the two and add it to the previous number, the one, and you get three. And then three plus two is five. And so each number in the sequence is the sum of the two numbers prior. And all of those numbers are called Fibonacci numbers. You don't have to use them in order. But I like to use them in order. And so you have your stripe, you're using them for your stripe sizes, right? So three rows, a three row stripe is one size. A five row stripe is another size. That's another Fibonacci number. The next Fibonacci would be three and five is eight. So an eight row stripe would be another Fibonacci number. And then eight and five is 13. And so that's another Fibonacci number. And they get bigger as they... the stripes get bigger as they go. Marsha 36:04 Right Kelly 36:05 Depending on how many stripes, you know how many stripes you want, and how you organize them. So so tell us what you're doing, Marsha. Marsha 36:14 So first, I'm going to say that the green is considered my main color. So every stripe, brown stripe is separated by six rows of green, that's going to be consistent through the sweater, right? Kelly 36:27 Yeah. Marsha 36:28 But then my brown, I'm doing four stripes of brown with three rows of brown. So a three row, brown stripe four times, then a five row brown stripe three times, and then an eight row stripe twice, then the plan is to do six rows of the green, and then my ribbing will be all in the brown. And so the next sequence should be 13 rows, which I think is going to be enough for my ribbing. That's what we talked about. Yeah, that makes sense to what I'm saying now. And I think this is all going to work out perfectly. Because if we add up all these rows, it's 97 rows, which will be about what I need. That plus the yoke equals about 21 and a half inches. Kelly 37:34 Perfect. Marsha 37:35 I'm sorry, I said that wrong. Those stripes sequence plus the yoke equals 19 and a half inches which is what I need for the body before I start the ribbing. And then the ribbing will be the extra two inches to make the body length the 21 and a half inches. And I hope I'm saying that in a way that makes sense to people, that people can understand. Kelly 37:54 Yeah, I think you did. Although I mean, I was there with you when you were working it out. Marsha 37:59 I know! Kelly 38:00 But I think it'll be nice, because you'll have, you'll have four small stripes, and then you'll have three medium sized stripes. And then you'll have two large stripes, and then you'll have one really large stripe in the ribbing. And so it's kind of getting heavier. You know, the weight of the dark brown is getting heavier as you go down. It's getting less frequent, but they're getting, but the stripes are getting wider. So I think it'll look really nice. I have never been... I have to say I have never been disappointed by Fibonacci. Marsha 38:33 So I have my little cheat sheet that I will take a picture of and put in the show notes. Kelly 38:40 Oh, good. Marsha 38:41 Yeah, visually what I'm doing, and I've checked off, you know what I've done so far, people will see what I'm doing. It'll be obvious, I think when you see, when I take a picture of it and post in the show notes. And then the plan is when I finished the body, I'm going to go back and do the collar next in the green. And then we're going to do I'm going to do another assessment of the, of the yarn supply and then we're gonna have to figure out stripes for the the sleeves. And I'm not sure if I will just... I only have a bit of a dilemma, because well, that's not exactly true. I guess the sleeves are about the length...Well, the sleeves are about the length of the entire body. So that means my stripe sequence is going to be a little bit different. Because the entire body of the finished sweater is 21 and a half inches. A part of that is solid green. Right? The sleeves are 21 and a half inches of stripes. Mm hmm. So we're going to have to do something there. There's going to be another phone call. [laughing] Kelly 39:53 Another consultation. Marsha 39:55 Yes, a consultation. But I have... Yes. So I will have to talk... I will actually talk to Dr.Locke who really is a doctor of mathematics. So to help me through this, and because the math will work, right? Kelly 40:11 Yeah. Yeah. So your only constraint for the sleeves is going to be how much yarn you have left. Marsha 40:19 Yes. And so Ben may get a short sleeve sweater. He may have what they call like a wrist... Kelly 40:33 bracelet length! Marsha 40:34 Bracelet length Kelly 40:39 Oh my gosh. Well, I think you'll have it. I mean, I think you'll have enough it's just a matter of how you how you can figure it. Yeah. Marsha 40:48 Actually, I'm sort of laughing because he might actually wear a bracelet length sweater because he was home last weekend. And I said, what he was wearing, I said it's so bizarre but it's kind of stylish in its own way. Kelly 41:08 Oh, yeah? Marsha 41:10 So he had on like long underwear or something. He'd gone for a bike ride so he had on like, I don't know if it was long underwear or leggings or something. I guess you wouldn't call it leggings for men but it's like some sort of warm pants like... I guess long underwear. Socks that are... like he has these Christmas socks you know those those acrylic socks that you can buy that have like designs on them? He had some Santa socks on his Teva sandals, cut-off shorts over it like those Carhart work pants that he'd cut off. That's over it. And then he's drawn with like, permanent marker all over them. And then where their are holes? He's sewn up the holes, hand stitched up holes, and then... [laughing] a hand knit a hat that I had made for him. Oh, no, it was the... I was think it was the one I made out of sock scraps. No, it was the very first handspun. I made a hat for him. And my handspun is like rope. Kelly 42:17 Oh yes. The five pound hat! Marsha 42:20 The five pound hat and it has no life to it at all. It does is just saying it's just like sits on his head like a bucket hat. Yeah. And then something on the top and I've completely lost track of what was on the top. But anyway, he looks kind of stylish in sort of a bizarre way. So maybe he might wear a bracelet length sleeve. Kelly 42:42 Oh my gosh. Yeah. Marsha 42:43 Anyway. Kelly 42:44 Well, they don't get in the way. You know? If you have your sleeves a little shorter. Marsha 42:49 So then my last project is the beanie, the Pebblebrook Beanie by Wish Upon a hook. And I started this using Little Sheep in the Big Woods. And so I was... I started this...was going to try and finish it for the crochet along. But sadly, after I ripped it out for the third time I thought I can't. I can't rip it out. I can't do it again. And so it was...now I had 24 hours. And I thought you know what, it's okay. Even though it's it's our... It's like my crochet along, like ours that we're doing as part of our podcast. I I can't do it. I couldn't do it again. So it's all right. Kelly 43:40 Yeah. Next time. Marsha 43:42 I don't know the thing about is I did really well on the the brim. I got that figured out. I did really well. I had to call you about picking up the stitches, I guess I would say to start the... I have to say I don't know how we ever learned to knit or crochet without YouTube because I watched tons of tutorials about how to make the bobble. We talked. And I'm just like these bobbles are not working right. And I still was doing them wrong. And then I ripped it out. We had a conversation I ripped it out I started again... like that's not right. So I ripped it out and like that's when I thought I can't start again. So... Kelly 44:22 Yeah, the thing about crochet. I like charts, this doesn't have a chart. I like charts because the thing I always found the most difficult about crochet is where... which hole do you put your hook in? Marsha 44:35 Yes, right. Kelly 44:36 It's a it's a fabric full of holes. And then you have to figure out which hole is the right hole to put the hook into for the, you know, for the next stitch. And I always found that to be really perplexing. Marsha 44:50 And so with mine, my Bobbles were stacking on top of each other because I was putting... I was picking the wrong whole. So my bobblrd just stacked on top of each other, and like, that doesn't look right. And because they're supposed to sort of nestle into each other, so it ends up sort of looking like basket weaving, right? Kelly 45:09 Yeah. Marsha 45:10 So anyway, I did take a class years ago on crochet. And I made-- I did make a shawl. Kelly 45:18 You made the virus shawl. Marsha 45:20 Yeah, I made that. But I, I'm not that familiar with crochet. Like I've been looking at like sweaters and stuff, but I don't even know how you get gauge. I don't know how you-- like the hat is not that critical, but like I don't really know enough about crochet to do a sweater for sure. I need to at least figure out how to do the hat before I would move on to a sweater right? No, there's some great patterns out there in crochet you know, so Kelly 45:52 Yeah, Marsha 45:52 beautiful things! Kelly 45:54 Those are interesting to me because I never thought of crochet really as garments. You know, growing up my grandma crocheted blankets. She crocheted doilies, she crocheted those modular bedspreads out of little tiny, small hexagon things. You know, with crochet thread. But crochet in a garment, excepted a garment for a doll, you know, doll clothes, was not something that I had ever thought of. So that was new to me when you know, as an adult, I came back to crochet. Yeah, yeah. Marsha 46:30 Yeah, cuz I had sort of this sense that crochet was not particularly fashionable, you know, But it is, I'm completely wrong on that. It's, there's some really, really nice patterns. And so I would like to know more about it, but I need a bit more hand holding. Kelly 46:45 And I, I, I don't feel like I'm super comfortable with crochet. And I especially didn't a few years ago when we first started having the crochet along. But I have to admit, I did a lot of crocheting growing up, you know, I mean, like making doll clothes and doll blankets and blankets for stuffed animals and giant long strips that I didn't, you know, have a purpose for. I know, there was a lot... I did a lot of crocheting as a kid. And so the learning part of it, I don't really remember. I didn't learn all the details, but the kind of the sort of basics, you know, the kind of basics of crochet and the language of croche, I don't remember learning it. I just have known for a really long time. So yeah, so I, you know, that it's, it's challenging. Marsha 47:39 I learned the just the basics, like how to chain stitch. I didn't even know what the names were. My great aunt showed me. But I don't know how to increase and decrease and yeah, you know, so I am interested, though, and what I would say... What I do like about crochet, and I've said this before, when we were having a conversation many years ago in the podcast about crochet, is you only have one live stitch. So if you do make a mistake, it's really easy to get back and get back on track. Because you're not having to, you know, knit back stitch by stitch or rip it all out and then pick up those stitches. It's very easy to correct anything. To rip back and get started again. But not under a crochet along deadline. Kelly 48:32 Right. Marsha 48:34 Anyway, so that's it for me for projects. All right. So Kelly, we need to talk about the crochet along. Kelly 48:42 Yeah, it just finished up a couple of days ago. And we have some prizes. So we had one thread for chatter and finished objects. We had 14 people participating in the discussion. And there were 20 projects that were linked. I'm not counting them up. I'm just... there at the top of the Ravelry thread it talks aboutit, so if you link your project it counts it. Nine patterns were linked, and 84 total posts. So lots of people had multiple projects in the in the crochet along so I think it was a success. Marsha 49:25 And we had some new people participating. Kelly 49:27 We did and that's always fun. I like when we have a different kind of along and end up with some people that we haven't seen in the threads before. So that was a nice thing to see. Marsha 49:39 So let's just say, we have four winners, and each has won a pattern of their choice up to $12. So Kelly, do you want to announce the winners? Kelly 49:51 Sure. And winners should just get in touch with I guess me and then let me know the pattern that you want. Our first winner is JoyLaine1, Joy. She made a basket that was partially my inspiration for... she and Natalie's baskets were my inspiration for making the cat basket when I saw that pile of orange yarn that I had when I did the tossing of the stash. So she's our first winner. And then we have Shelly, Purpledogwood. She's the one that made all of the pumpkin and Santa hats. Marsha 50:43 Yes, Kelly 50:43 That we talked about last time. And then our third winner, Misnim, Missy. She's the one who inspired me to make the ear savers. She posted about making the ear savers. And then that reminded me that I had saved that pattern for the one with the buttons long ago, and that I needed to get busy on that for for my, my school semester, this coming up. And then finally, our last winner is SuperKip, Natalie. And she made quite a few things. We talked about her baby toy. And she made a moses basket that she is using for yarn and made quite a few things. So those are our four winners. So Joy and Shelly and Missy and Natalie, message me on Ravelry or email me, Two Ewes at Two Ewes Fiber Adventures dot com. And let me know what pattern you'd like. You've won the pattern of your choice. Congratulations! Marsha 51:56 Yes. Congratulations. And thank you for participating. It's fun. Well, what do I know? It was not fun for me. [laughing] Kelly 52:08 I'm sorry. But I do think it's a cool hat. And I do think you know, Marsha 52:15 I did too. But another time. Let's not go.. let's not go back there, right.[laughing] But anyway, just laughing! Kelly 52:25 And then we still have our winter weave along going on. It started in October, but it will go through the end, through the end of March. Marsha 52:37 So Kelly, we need to talk about our next giveaway that we're doing. Yes. So this is going to be this is inspired by the tossing of the stash. Kelly 52:48 Yes, it is. Marsha 52:50 So one of the things that you found in your stash is I don't know how many years ago it was that I had acquired a whole bunch of cotton yarn, mercerized cotton yarn. And we did a big dye-A-thon when I was at your house one summer. And we still.you found that you still have this cotton yarn in your stash, some of it because you have made dish cloths out of a lot of it. But we still have quite a bit, several skeins, quite a bit. So it is inspired our next giveaway which is we're going to put a thread on the Ravelry, our Ravelry group and just let us know your favorite dish cloth pattern. And you'll be entered to win a skein of our hand dyed cotton yarn. Hand dyed by the Two Ewes. And you'll also receive a Two Ewes Fiber Adventures dish cloth pattern. And if you've never made a dish cloth, just tell us if you're a dish cloth newbie, if you just just check in on that in the thread, and then we'll have a drawing for a skein of our hand dyed cotton yarn and a dishcloth pattern. So we're recording this on January 13. So it'll be posting in the next couple of days. So it'll start as soon as you hear this and it ends February 28. So go into the thread and let us know your favorite dish cloth pattern and or if you're a newbie, and you may be one of the lucky winners! Kelly 54:37 And I am going to... I'm going to lower expectations just a little bit about the dish cloth pattern. Because okay, because it's mostly just a stitch pattern. I'm not a pattern designer. You know, it won't be tech edited. I'll just let you know how I started. You know, what size needles I use, what the stitch pattern is that I use, and how I bind it off. Marsha 55:08 Okay, so it'll be... so yes, we will lower the bar on the pattern! Kelly 55:14 It's not a professionally designed and tech edited pattern. It's the the kind of pattern that your that your grandma would pass alongto you. Marsha 55:26 Yeah. When you're sitting next to each other on the sofa, Kelly 55:29 I'll send it to you on a scrap of paper, on the back of a receipt.[laughing] Oh, I'm sorry, no, it will be-- I will write it nicely. But yeah, it's not an official like designer kind of pattern because I'm not a pattern designer. And then one other thing that I just have to disclose about this yarn if you win it. Some of them-- because it was our--we were experimenting with dyeing cotton. Some of them have quite a bit of bleeding happening. And so if you're doing your dishes, the first time, you may find that the water turns, whatever color the dish cloth is. But after you've done that, first, you know, after you've done that first round of dishes, I can verify. Or if you don't want to deal with that you can just toss it in the washing machine before you even use it. Marsha 56:25 But not with your whites! Kelly 56:26 But not with your whites, correct. Yeah, toss it into a colored load. And it'll be... it'll be fine. But I just... Marsha 56:33 We really have-- we really have lowered the bar on this contest. Kelly 56:37 Well, it is my destashing really, right? Marsha 56:42 Yeah. You will be helping Kelly out. [laughing] Kelly 56:45 Yes. You will be getting cast off yarn! Doesn't that sound good? [laughing] Actually, I have to say I do love the dish cloths made out of this yarn. They're kind of stiff and scrubby. Because it's a firm yarn, you know. So they work really well. And you will like them. If you win this and you make one of those dish cloths, I think you will like it. So Alright. And then the last thing, we have some listener feedback. I just wanted to... I just wanted to to talk about...Caroline in Somerset, Southwest England, suggested because we had said, you know, what would people like to hear on the podcast in the coming year? She suggested that people might like to hear about yarn stores around the world, and maybe a bit of the history of the yarn store or the history of the town that they're in. And she told us about a yarn shop called All About the Yarn, she says its on a cobbled street called Catherine Hill. And yes, it is a hill. And it's so called because hundreds of years ago, Catherine Hill, the street is called that because hundreds of years ago, there was a chapel called St. Catherine's. So she gave us a first little snippet of information about the yarn shop and the street that the yarn shop is on. But I thought that was a good idea. And so we may we may turn that into something for the for the new year. So thanks for the idea Catherine. And then Irena emailed and said that she was so glad to hear us back that she had had thought perhaps we might not be coming back. She knows a lot of the podcasts that she listens to have you know, sort of disbanded. And so she was really glad to hear us coming back. And she did say she loved it when Marsha would go on long trips. So I think that will be in the not near future. Kelly 56:47 Yes, my travel buddy Kim and I have had many conversations about where we go next. But we're not quite ready to get on a plane yet. We're not quite ready. I don't know, it will happen. Right? But not right away. Yeah, not right away. Kelly 59:14 Yeah. Yeah. But it was nice to hear. It was nice to hear that Irena was was waiting for us to come back. And I have to also give a shout out to Kent of Kent on Instagram because when we posted the last episode... It's so funny when you know the listeners have kind of inside jokes. Because he commented on the Instagram posts that it was good that we were... that our episode was up because he had been sitting and refreshing his podcast app over and over. That gave me... that gave me a laugh. And then finally, Anna said you know, cut yourself some slack. That was her message to us because we were talking about missing episodes. She said, During the pandemic you are my company, you made my frustrations okay and normal. She said, Of course, she likes all the, you know, travels and conferences and knitting event talk. But she also likes hearing the frustrations of teaching online, dogs, and the isolation that was what most folks were going through. So she says, you keep it real. You kept it real, gave me an outside contact and reinforced all that was essential and made me laugh. So that was really nice. Thank you, Anna, for that comment. And yeah, we do, we are cutting ourselves some slack for the the difficulties of the past couple of couple of years, and probably some difficulties going forward. But yeah, we'll keep sharing. You'll hear. You'll hear me whine. [laughing] Marsha 1:00:54 I am going to take a picture here. I'm sitting here at my desk thinking about the dogs. I am going to take a picture. I'm sitting at the desk recording, and I'm just going to take a picture of Enzo laying on the bed, and I'm going to post this in the show notes. Kelly 1:01:09 Oh good. Marsha 1:01:09 Yeah. He cracks me up. You know, I think it's a poodle thing. I'm turning away from the microphone. Now. I think it's a poodle thing that they lay on their... Maybe all dogs do it. But they lay... he lays on his back. And then he has his head like twisted all the way back down almost to his hips kind of it looks so uncomfortable. Kelly 1:01:29 yeah, it's not every dog. I think it must be a poodle thing. Marsha 1:01:34 Because they're so floppy. Yeah. And yeah, Kelly 1:01:37 None of my dogs have ever laid like that. Marsha 1:01:43 Yeah, he's so funny. Very. He's so floppy. Anyway. That's a dog story. Well, I thought I have to say I thought it was really very, it felt really good to know that people missed us because...Well, I wasn't really feeling guilty. Because it's like life gets... we just are busy in life, you know, the teaching thing and blah, blah, blah, all of that. But the fact that people were like, Well, where are they? Refreshing the app! There were many comments about like, you know, Oh, good! You finally posted! We were getting worried. So that was nice. And it's also it's nice that that we have been.. we're still in the middle of the pandemic...but that people have found us so enjoyable during the pandemic too. Kelly 1:02:29 Yeah, it's nice, it's very nice to hear! It is nice to hear that. That it's a bright spot, right, for people. Marsha 1:02:37 Yeah, yeah, we're giving people something. I don't know. I don't know exactly what we're giving them. But we're giving them something. [laughing] Kelly 1:02:43 Yeah, and it's a bright spot for us too, I mean, I always look forward to Marsha 1:02:47 Oh, yeah. Kelly 1:02:47 To getting on and talking to all of you. Marsha 1:02:53 Yeah. Kelly 1:02:54 And in fact, we have more to say, we have more in the show notes this episode than we actually did in the episode. And that's happened to us the last probably three times. So yeah, that we've recorded. So. Yeah. Marsha 1:03:10 Yeah. So. Okay. Anything I think we need to say? Kelly 1:03:14 I think that's it.Okay, I'm off to professional development for two hours. Marsha 1:03:22 Ah, in person or online? Kelly 1:03:24 Zoom. Yeah, okay. So I'm really not off. I'm off to the downstairs. First I have to get dressed. And then I have to appear on Zoom for a professional development day. Marsha 1:03:37 All right. Well, I'm gonna wake the dog up and take him for a walk. Kelly 1:03:42 Oh, my goodness. [laughing] Marsha 1:03:47 He needs some exercise because he's got his pandemic five that we still haven't gotten off. So we're working on that. So well, all right, Kelly. We'll talk. I'll let you go. I'll let you get to your your zoom call and we'll talk in two weeks. Both 1:04:03 Alrighty, bye. Kelly 1:04:06 Thank you so much for listening.

Kelly 0:44 Hi, Marsha. Marsha 0:46 Well, Kelly 0:47 yes, we are not together. We thought we would be together for this episode. But Mother Nature had other ideas. Marsha 0:56 Yes. So we did not announce this to people. But I was planning on going to visit you and Robert for New Years. My plan was to leave December 26 and drive to California. But yeah, Mother Nature had other plans. We were hit with a big storm here in Seattle, and very, very cold temperatures. And so I had the car packed on the 26th. And I got up and I went to get gas at eight o'clock in the morning to get onto the freeway. And I never even got onto the freeway! I went on to the on ramp and saw that there's cars just sitting there and people out of their cars looking at something and I... there's nobody behind me. So don't do this if there's people behind you, but I just backed up on the on ramp and turned down a side street and went home. Yeah. And, and I was had been looking at the weather and I knew there were storms in southern Oregon and northern California. And we talked and then I decided I was going to leave dry and go the next day. Monday the 27th and I got in the did the same... got in the car and I went out there and I just thought I can't do it. Kelly 2:16 Yeah, Marsha 2:17 Yeah, I don't want to do it. So I called you and I said I'm not coming down. So I'm really bummed. Kelly 2:23 I know. Yeah. But Robert was really glad you decided not to come. He was worried about driving in all that. Yeah. Marsha 2:34 Yeah, I was worried too, that I was gonna be doing it on my own and having spent time going to college going over passes to go after Christmas break to go to school and being stuck 10 hours at the pass. I can't I can't make myself do it. You know, well, my car's really good in the snow. But I just... it was too much. So I did miss Robert's last day of work he now has retired and I missed New Years and I missed... What I was really looking forward to is your co-workers did the tamale making party. Kelly 3:06 Oh, yeah, that was fun. Marsha 3:08 Yeah, so don't tell me how fun it was Kelly because it's just gonna upset me. Okay. [laughing] Kelly 3:12 I know, But the good news is... the good news is while it is a lot of work, and while there is, in certain circles, a lot of judgment about tamales, and how well you make them and how thin you get them and all of that... Oh, it is kind of a myth that it's so difficult. It's a lot of work. It's not difficult. And if you don't care, you know that you're making stained glass masa that you can see through when you hold it up. Marsha 3:47 Yeah, Kelly 3:48 You know and you don't have you don't have your, your grandma giving you rules about how the tamales need to be. According to my friends, you you know you can make them thick. You can pile on the masa, you can make them thin, you can make them inconsistent. Or some parts of them are thick and some parts of them are thin. It's not something... it's not like like... I had this idea that they were really hard to make. And that it was sort of like I don't know making one of those things on the Great British Baking Show where you know you're you're in danger of the whole thing just going awry and it doesn't taste good. It doesn't look good. It's just a mess. And it turns out that tamales are not like that. Marsha 4:38 No. I have watched people make them on cooking shows and I... you know I have cookbooks with how to make them. But what I was really seemed to me is one of those things that you have to make the commitment to make them because it is a bit labor intensive and you make large amounts of it and you you don't make just 12 tamales you make 100 tamales, is that right? Maybe that's an exaggeration. Make a lot because, yeah, Kelly 5:03 There is a lot of, there's a lot of prep work to do. And if you're going to it's kind of like weaving. You know, if you're going to do the prep work, if you're going to wind a warp and thread all those threads through the heddles, you know, people think to themselves, well, I'm going to put on a long warp and make multiples of whatever I'm making. But even that you don't have to do. I mean, I just made a baby blanket where all I put on the loom was just the yarn for that one baby blanket. Might not be the most efficient way to go, but it was...it was certainly okay, you know. So anyway, they don't seem as daunting to me anymore. They're delicious. Delicious. Marsha 5:49 So when I come down-- so next next time! Kelly 5:55 I've only had reheated tamales, I've never had them right out of the pan, you know, the pot. And oh my gosh, delicious. So well, next time you come down, well, maybe we'll even save some because I have some in the freezer that are not cooked. That's the other thing you can do that I found out. You don't actually need to steam them when you make them. So you know, I've had them frozen that you then reheat. But these are frozen in my freezer but not even cooked. Marsha 6:31 So you would just steam so they'll be steamed and they'll be freshly steamed? Kelly 6:36 Now, I don't know what the freezer...you know what being frozen does? Does that change? You know, is it different from the fresh ones just made? But anyway, it was a fun day. And I can definitely... we can definitely reproduce that. Next time you're here, you're here for long. Yeah. Marsha 7:00 Yeah, yeah. So that was a bummer. And I, but I thought to myself, I guess better to stay home. So I can go another time, right, than start out and have something bad happen so Kelly 7:15 Or even just be stuck. I mean, if you're going to be stuck, right? If you're going to be snow bound, better to be snow bound, surrounded by all your own yarn and, and food and drink, then to be snow bound in some motel somewhere. Right, right or snowed in your car on the side of the road... Marsha 7:36 Well, yeah, on the mountain pass. Well, and I'll tell you another reason. There was many, many reasons why I made the decision that I made. But one of them was you know, I had lighting that I was bringin down. Some was for the house and some was going in the trailer. And I thought, oh my gosh, what if I got like rear ended or in an accident and the car's totaled? It would total all the lighting. And I was like, yeah, so that was another reason why I thought, you know,I'm just gonna wait, just gonna wait. So, yes, but anyway, I've been home and I did take your advice, because you remember what you said to me is that the time that I would have been with you in California, what we had planned on doing was just sitting in the either your living room or the sunroom or someplace warm and just knitting and talking and eating and drinking. And then that was going to be speckled with trips to the beach, taking the dogs to the beach. So you said I had to sort of take this time to just hang out in it. So that's what I've been doing. And I've cast on some projects, and I've been working on projects and I didn't take the tree down. I did... and you told me I was not allowed to entertain anybody. Kelly 8:52 I did tell you that. Yes. Marsha 8:54 You did tell me that. And I didn't follow that. Not exactly. I had my friend Kim and Joanne momdiggity over for knitting. Kelly 9:05 Oh, that's good. I approve of that. Marsha 9:10 Okay, so that was fun. And and then last night, I was planning on spending New Year's Eve on my own. And then Kim and my brother just came by and we just ate leftovers. It was very, very simple. Nice New Year's Eve. Yeah, it was at the last minute they just decided to come over. So but yeah, it's been a good good time here at home too. So Kelly 9:33 Well good. Yeah, I've actually I mean, it would be nicer if you were here, but I have actually been enjoying myself with Robert home. Because he usually works the holidays, you know, when he works. So his last day of work was the 28th. And then Wednesday and Thursday are his normal days off. So Wednesday and Thursday he kept saying, Well, I'm not really retired. This is just like my normal day off. And then when the 31st came that was like his first actual...that was his actual retirement date and the first actual day that he would have had to be at work. But then he's like, well, but this is a holiday. So you know, I could have had the holiday off. So I'm not sure when he's actually going to start to feel like it's really retirement, not just days off. Marsha 10:21 Yeah. Kelly 10:22 But it's been... Yeah, we've been just kind of sitting. We went for a walk yesterday and took the dogs out and did six miles. And Beary was... he did great. It was on hills at Fort Ord and and he didn't have a sit down strike or anything. He went the whole way. He was. He was a lively the whole way. So yeah, so he's really, he's really come along. So anyway, we've been having a good holiday week. So with all your sitting and knitting, what have you been knitting on Marsha? Marsha 10:56 I will tell you what I've been knitting on. I finished something! Kelly 10:59 Yay! Marsha 11:00 I finished one of the nanny Meyer tea cozies the one I was making for my friend Susanna out of the yellow and orange. I finished that and I think I brought it over to her the day before Christmas Eve. So the 23rd I think I dropped it off and she made a pot of tea. We put it on the tea pot. Kelly 11:18 Oh, nice! Marsha 11:18 And do you remember I was talking about should I sew it up? Or should I not sew it up? When I got to her house, what I did is I sewed up what I thought was going to be the right size. And I left the ends loose. I didn't knot it or weave in the end. So when I got there, I could fit it on the tea pot. And it was pretty good. I think I just made a couple extra little stitches. And then I wove in the ends. So that worked really well. That's good. Yeah, so I delivered that. And then the other Nanny... to give everybody an update on other Nanny Meyer tea cozy that I'm making, the one for Brian. Because there's been all this discussion about Brian, like if you if you can't give me the measurements, you know, don't work on it, don't do anything. Don't call him. I have not called him and then he came. We got kind of..we've been sort of fouled up on our dates. It's been a while, you know, between episodes, but he came at some point he came and had dinner and he brought his teapot. And he left the teapot. So I have it and I today I finished the first side and I cast on I've knit about inch and a half of the second side. So I'm hoping to finish that in the next couple of days. Kelly 11:42 That's good is that the red and green one? Or the burgundy and green one? Marsha 12:34 Yeah, yeah. So I'm glad he finally brought that tea pot. I was I thought it was his only teapot. But he says he has another one. So that's good that I can just keep it for a while. Yeah, fit it on there. So and then what else I still working on my socks, the metal striped socks. And I got sort of, you know, involved in other projects. So it's kind of gone by the wayside a little bit, but I pick it up periodically and work on it. And then I did cast on another Quick Switch hat by Abby Knits. Kelly 13:15 I say that that's as bad as Garter Squish. Marsha 13:18 I know. In fact, I have to tell you, I was listening. Kelly 13:22 Garter Squish. Marsha 13:23 I was listening to our last episode when I was walking Enzo the other day. And I was trying to say, garter stitch blanket. And I couldn't say it and then I went to correct myself and I said... I listened to myself carefully. And when I'm trying to correct myself, I said garter switch. Even when I corrected myself, so garter stitch, and quick switch hat! Anyway, Kim and I had gone hiking, I guess it was the Wednesday before Christmas, I can't remember. Anyway, we afterwards we were near Issaquah and that's where there's a yarn shop called Nifty Knitter there and that's where I had seen the pattern for this hat. And so I went in there and I bought three skeins of yarn because my Ben he wanted a hat and then his friend, Ben, who also named Ben, I think I mentioned this... that I always refer to my... when they're together it's... my son is Ben the younger, and his friend Ben is Ben the elder because he's 31 and my son is 24. That's not his name. His last name is not Elder, but I always refer to them as Ben the younger and Ben the elder. Anyway, both Bens like the hat and want one of them. So I got yarn for both of them. And then my brother really liked the hat and I so I've got a color for him. So the one I'm making for Ben is Meeker St. Olives Outerwear DK in the colorway Sage, and let me grab the other two. I'm making... the one for my brother is Meeker St., the same yarn, and it's called Dragon's Breath. And it's like an orange. It's a very cool color. I love it. And then the other Ben, Ben the elder, I bought Dye House DK. It says here Serial Knitters Underground, and I didn't know what the color is called. Oh, Reindeer. And it looks sort of like, no, it's funny. My brother looked at it and says he sees purple. I think it's like fig. Marsha 15:36 Oh, Reigen Marsha 15:37 You know that...It's like it's brown, it's not really purple? Kelly 15:39 Yeah, that figgy, purpley brown Marsha 15:41 It's really nice. Kelly 15:42 Puce [laughing] Marsha 15:44 Puce I guess, yes. Kelly 15:47 I only say that because all those years that I had an Irish Water Spaniel. That's what they say in the in the breed standard. Something about puce as their as the color. It's kind of like... none of these dogs are puce. But then that yarn, the one I like that's been discontinued that I really want to get. Marsha 16:10 Oh, right Kelly 16:12 Druid Hill, right? Druid Hill, from neighborhood fiber company. It's that same that same kind of color that purpley brown Yeah, Marsha 16:24 You first think it's brown. But the more you look at you realize it has a little bit of purpley mauve tones to it because I made a sweater out of that colorway. Kelly 16:34 Oh, that's right. Yeah, it's not a golden brown at all. Yeah. Marsha 16:41 And I have to say, too, do you remember, and I was talking about this hat, when you are to create this pattern of the stitches leaning to the right. And then to leaning to the left, you knit through the second stitch on the left needle first, either through the front or the back, depending on which way the stitch is going to lean and then through the first stitch. And, and then you just keep going around. But when you get to your end of row marker, you keep moving it. You knit to one stitch before the marker, and then you move the marker, one stitch to the left, or excuse me to the right. And then that's when you start your new row. And remember, I was saying in the first hat, I could not wrap my head around that. It's like now it seems really simple to me, and I understand it. But the first hat I could not understand. It was so funny. And so now I understand. So this hat looks a lot better than the one I did. But the one I did is okay, but I can tell there's somewhere, that beginning of row, there's a little kind of funky stitches. I always put that in the back. But this one I'm making for Ben now is is much better. So I've learned what I'm doing. Kelly 17:53 That's cool. Yeah, sometimes, sometimes you have to, I don't know, you have to actually go through the process before you kind of understand the logic and the stages. And I feel the same way about weaving too. It takes me a few inches, at least, of weaving till I'm like, Okay, I see the system or the logic, the rhythm, the pattern of what's happening. Good. Marsha 18:17 I think I think my first hat is sort of like in sewing you do... you make a dress or something out of muslin first. Kelly 18:25 Right. Marsha 18:26 You know, I think that's how I'm considering my hat is the muslin. Kelly 18:29 Your muslin. That's cool. Marsha 18:33 So anyway. And then but the other thing I cast on, and I'm really excited about this, because I've been talking about this for a while. But the handspun, the green and bitter sweet chocolate that kind of barber pole handspun that I did. I want to start a sweater for Ben. And I've been searching because I didn't have enough of the green and brown. I bought more the brown and I spun that as a solid. And so I was going to make stripes to extend that yarn. So I've been looking at patterns. And I think I talked about this in the last episode that I went to phrancko.com. And that's P h r a n c k o.com. And Frank Jernigan is the designer, and he does a really interesting pull over where it looks like it has set in sleeves. But they're they're not they're all... it's knitted top down. And you just shape those quote unquote set in sleeves with increases. So it's like a raglan. It's basically a raglan sleeve really is the technique but the way he's designed it, it ends up looking like a set in sleeve. And I thought... I was having difficulty finding a pattern for the gauge of the yarn. And so I thought, this is great because you just you measure, I measured Ben. His site is is similar to Amy Herzog's site. The custom fit site is like that concept. And I don't think she's doing that anymore, I heard. But it's the same idea. So you just take these certain measurements of, you know, chest and arm length and neck and all this stuff. And then you do a swatch, and figure out your row height, and your gauge, or your stitches per inch, and your rows per inch. And you enter all of that into the the website. Also, if it's a standard yarn, say, for example, if it was Cascade 220, it has, as people have been putting in their yarn, he saves all that information. So if I had made the sweater out of Cascade 220, or think of another brand, and it was already in there, it can, it adds it, has the calculation about yardage. You can put all that in there. Otherwise, if you don't, then you have to put in your... if it's not in the system, you put in your own yardage. So this is nice, I could put in the, the, the number of ounces of yarn, I have either ounces, or grams, and then you put in the number of yards you have, or meters that you have, and then it will... And then with all of this information, it prints out the pattern for you. So I cast on I started it and I first I have to say I love knitting with my handspun. There is something about handspun. Yeah, that is very, very satisfying to knit with. And I can't explain what it is. Kelly 21:46 Maybe this is not the the part of it that's so satisfying. But it just has a life to it. That handspun yarn just has a vitality to it that, you know, a commercial skein doesn't have. Marsha 22:03 Yeah. And also, I guess, too, because I am... I'm not a very... What would I say, even spinner or something? It has a little... I mean, I can see where there's parts where it's a little thin and thick. You know, as we've talked about, once you knit it up, you know, it's not really a huge deal. Right? But it does give it some sort of textural interest, I think. Yeah, I like yeah, like I don't think it's a bad thing. Kelly 22:28 No, I agree with you. Yeah, yeah. Marsha 22:32 So anyway, but I was knitting along and I thought to myself, gosh this thing, it looks so small. I mean, it's supposed to fit him right. And I'm.. and I should also say, what I should say too is that you can pick if you want, like slim fitting, regular fitting, roomy, extra, like, how it's going to fit and how much ease you're going to have. And so for an extra dollar, you just get all three. You can get all the sizes. So I just thought I'll just do that. So I'm making the the size, the largest size, the roomiest size I can make with the amount of yarn I have, which should give him about four inches of positive ease because Ben's a skinny guy, right? So Kelly 23:20 That'll be nice. Marsha 23:22 So but I thought to myself, it looks so small. So and then on New Year's when my brother and Kim are they're, like it's too small Marsha. I'm like, but you know, math doesn't lie. Right? I'm going by the math. It has to be right. So, but Frank does... on Saturdays he does a Zoom meeting with all of these people. So anyway, I went today. Just before we recorded I went I showed up at the meeting and I said to him, I have to ask you a question because it looks like it's too small and two people last night said this is too, it looks too small. And everybody on the Zoom call started laughing. Kelly 24:02 Oh, really? Marsha 24:03 Yes. Because apparently, this is what everybody says. It's too small. It looks too small. And he said it will be fine. He... you know that it's because what I'm doing is he said you have to remember this is not like a like a raglan sleeve. Because the technique is like a I don't want to say that the technique is like a raglan because it's making it look like a set in sleeve. But the technique is basically a raglan sleeve, you just start making increases, right and that's what forms the shape. But that doesn't have a line on the top of your shoulder where the second sleeve is right right. Like where is the top of the shoulder there's no demarcation really where the on a raglan sleeve. This one actually has kind of a demarcation. I can't really explain it the right way. But he said that's actually further up on your shoulder and so as you start making the increases for the so called, he calls the sleeve cap at that top part over your that's where all your increases are going in. And he said it will work. They all were like, sort of not laughing at me. Not at all. But they're laughing with me like, no, they all have been through this. The first one they made like, small. So I'm really, really interested in seeing how this sweater turns out. Its fascinating. It's just a fascinating process, you know that. Kelly 25:23 Yeah. A custom design pattern is really a cool idea. Mm hmm. And his patterns are primarily for men, correct? Marsha 25:34 Yes. And I have to learn more. And I did not have a lot of time to stay in the on the call, because we were getting ready to record. I want to ask them, because on his Instagram account, he shows people who've made cardigans. And I don't know if it's from the website, if you can design a cardigan from the, the website, or if someone's just made a pullover and steeked it, you know Kelly 26:02 Interesting! Marsha 26:03 I don't know, And then he was showing us, too, he's working on a sweater that has cables going down the front like... Cuz, you can either pick a crew collar or a V neck, and the one that he was working on was a V neck with cables going, like around the neck and then down the front of the sweater. And I'm not sure how you I'm not sure how that works? How you get cables in there, how you design that? Or does he do that? Or is it something you get the basic pattern and then you figure out the cables? Or could you use this pattern for a color work project? Kelly 26:38 I think in the custom fit, the custom fit site, you could add cables, you could say you were adding the cable, and then you'd have to give some... I think you had to give some information about them. But there was like a formula for for how the gauge changed because of you know, pulled in because of the cables. There was something embedded in the embedded in the... how to make it. So I would imagine he has a similar thing. Yeah, Marsha 27:11 Yeah, I have to do.. I'm really talking about too soon because I need a little bit more research. And I'll find out more on the next call and kind of peruse around on the website. But I do remember with Amy Herzog's site, I made two sweaters, I believe, with her site. And the first one we made together. Remember, it was the Acorn Trail? Kelly 27:31 Yeah. Marsha 27:32 And that one is that she had the pattern, but then she would custom fit that pattern to you and it had the cables in it. And then I did another custom fit cardigan, like an open front cardigan kind of thing that had no cables in it. But I remember you could select the length, you could select the the length of the sleeves, the shape of the sleeves, because I did kind of like a bell shaped sleeve. Kelly 27:55 Yeah, interesting. Yeah. My second one, too, was freeform. It wasn't a pattern that she already had that was converted to the custom fit. It was, what kind of sweater do you want? What kind of features do you want? Kind of like yours? And I did something wrong and ended up with a pattern that was way too small. And then I had to end up recalculating, Marsha 28:22 And both of mine the sleeves were too tight. Yeah, right. We've talked about that. You know, Kelly 28:27 I think that's, that's a feature. I just really think that's a feature of women's pattern grading right now. Oh, well, maybe not right now. Because bigger sleeves are more in fashion. I'm seeing patterns with wider, with more puffier sleeves, wider sleeves. But I think there for a while. I mean, it was kind of like well, if you're doing this size, this is how many inches around you need your sleeve to be in. And to me, they were just too tight. Because I want I mean, I want a sweater to go over the top of something. And I don't want to have to like do the opposite of peel myself into it. You know, whatever that word is that's the opposite of peeling it off, where you're, you know, getting yourself into the sweater. Yeah, I have a few Marsha 29:18 You don't want to grease up your arms to get your sweater. [laughing] Kelly 29:20 Yes, I have a few sweaters that are like that. I feel like I practically have to grease my arms to put them in. Oh my gosh. [laughing] And then we've we've talked on it. I won't go on and on about this. But we've talked on and on about the depth of the I think it's called the armscye. And it's like okay, that is just unrealistic. But I also think I'm more sensitive to that feeling of having my arm my sleeves tight around my around the top of my arms too. So anyway, we won't go into my little... Marsha 29:57 Moving on! Well, anyway, I will report in how this turns out how this sweater turns out because I am really interested. Yeah. And I will join the group next time and, and talk to them. So that was really fun. Anyway, I have another story to tell you though. I have a... I found a sweater that I want to make someday. But I have to tell you about the sweater because I had a knitting related injury. Kelly 30:30 So that sounds ominous! Marsha 30:33 I'm fine, everybody's fine. But you know we have all this snow. And so I took Enzo for a walk. And I'm walking down the street and there's a young couple getting out of their car. And they're unloading some boxes, and this woman has on this most amazing sweater. And I started looking at the sweater and then slipped on the ice and fell down on my hip and my elbow. Marsha 30:56 Oh, no! Marsha 30:58 Because I was so... what is the sweater she's wearing? It's so cool. Anyway, it's called Embrace Octopus sweater. And it's... How would you...? Because you looked at it Kelly. It's very... it's so... it has an octopus that's like up on the right shoulder. Like the head? Is that what you call it? The bulbus part of the octopus? And then all the tentacles come down around the chest and they wrap around the back and they wrap around down the arms. And if you if you look at the projects, there are 599 projects. It's amazing. And it's really interesting to look at the projects because also the octopus is very much it looks like like a pen and ink drawing. Right? Kelly 31:47 Yeah, there's lots of detail, lots of little pixels of stitches that make it look... It kind of reminds me of, what is it, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea? Like that style of drawing. And I don't I don't know what type of drawing it would be. I don't know that the book even has drawings, but kind of that era, you know, that the movie was set? Marsha 32:12 Yeah. Kelly 32:13 In that era. You know? Sort of old times, and the sweater in the pattern page is black and white. It looks it really does look like a black and white, a black and white drawing of an octopus. Marsha 32:24 Yeah, so it's really so a lot of a lot of people have done the octopuses in the light color and then the bodies in like black or navy. But then other people have done other ones. Like okay, there's one here that she's done that the octopus is like white or cream. But then the body of the sweater is a brown kind of a chocolatey brown. That is really beautiful. There's one where the sweater's blue but the octopus is in like a gold. Kelly 32:53 Oh, I see that one, yeah, that's pretty. Marsha 32:56 CandyAndy did one. It's two shades of green. That's beautiful. Another one. MissMay. Hers is like teal and then the octopus is in orange. Do you see that one? Kelly 33:10 Yes. Marsha 33:11 Further down. Yeah, there's one where it's like a blue but a pink octopus. I mean, they're just really really what it looks like. It's a dark gray with an orange octopus. I just think it's a fantastic sweater. Yeah, Kelly 33:23 No, it is a fantastic sweater. You need to this sweater. Marsha 33:28 You need to make this sweater. You've got an octopus right? Kelly 33:32 Yes, I do. I yeah, I do. Marsha 33:36 I love it. I think this is just a fantastic sweater. If I get good at color work then I think I want to make this sweater so... Kelly 33:41 This would be is this like intarsia? it's probably... like it might be intarsia? Marsha 33:49 I don't think it is really. Kelly 33:55 There's quite a bit of patterning so I guess oh here it says it's stranded Marsha 34:02 Yeah, I'm looking at the details. It says it's worked straight up in the round using stranded colorwork on circular needles. Kelly 34:08 So there's enough detail all around the sweater and then at the back you've got tentacles on the back and tentacles on the arms and wow that's really something that would be akin to the detail of the the bee blanket that I want to make. Yes. With all the patterning. Oh, very cool, Marsha. Marsha 34:32 But it made me fall! But then I have to tell you something about this. So I fell and then this young woman she came over and she said to me, are you okay? And I said yeah, I'm fine. I said, I was looking at your sweater. And anyway, she said she had knit it and so that's why I went on Ravelry and found it and I thanked her for checking on me and everything. But the funny thing is I got home and I thought, Where's Enzo's poo bag? Anyway, I think when I fell it must have just gone flying. And then I just got up and walked off. So somewhere over there is this poo bag. [laughing] I, I went a different route today. I'll need to go retrace my steps and collect his bag. But anyway, that was kind of funny. So, but anyway, I think it's just a very cool pattern. Yeah, someday. But anyway, Kelly 35:27 Like one of the fantasy patterns I have in my queue. I have in my queue a tag called fantasy, all the things that I have illusions of making. But, but, but also know, I probably won't. You know. Marsha 35:40 I just realized I didn't say the name of the designer. It's must be Maiae-- M A I A E. Sirnes S I R N E S. In fact, I'd never... this is also really bad podcasting. I never looked...Oh, she only has one design. And it's this pattern. Yeah, and actually, if you click on her on the one of the photographs of her sweater, you could see the chart with the octopus design on it. And it's kind of amazing. Kelly 36:12 Oh, yeah, that's kind of scary. Look at the chart. Marsha 36:17 That's intense. But anyway, wow. Kelly 36:23 That's cool. Marsha 36:25 Anyway, how about you? Kelly 36:27 Well, right now I have in my on my project page, I was in a finishing binge. And the one thing I didn't finish was weaving in the ends of my pullover that's been done for months. It I called it finished a long time ago. But I still need to weave in the ends of that green striped Rachel pattern. That was the only thing that I was trying... thinking I would finish before the end of the you know, before the end of 2021. My sort of finishing frenzy that I didn't get done, but I got, I got all the ends woven in on a whole bunch of hats and I got my sweater, my handspun, the terracotta CVM handspun sweater that I've been making using the Dark Green Forest pattern. I got it finished! Marsha 37:25 Woohoo! Yay! Kelly 37:27 Finally! It's been lingering, lingering, lingering for a while. I think when I last spoke about it, I had tried to even up the sleeves and actually made the sleeve that was too short too long. Marsha 37:40 Mm hmm. Kelly 37:41 And so finally I just I didn't even bother blocking it. I just put it on I looked at it. I kind of said okay, I think it needs to go here. And I ripped it back to there. And then I just put in the ribbing. So it's great. It came out good. I definitely need to wash it and block it. The one I finished last year the the Targhee lamb, that Dark and Stormy? I never blocked it. I just started wearing it because I finished it and it was cold and I was out in the trailer. And so I just put it on and I've been wearing it ever since. So I never blocked that sweater. And it kind of didn't need it. It was kind of already you know, bouncy and relaxed. But this one is... it feels a little... You know how you say my sweaters are so light? Marsha 38:31 Mm hmm. Kelly 38:32 It feels a little dense to me. I think some parts of the yarn were a little thicker than what I used to make my gauge swatch. So there's parts of the sweater that feel a little dense, and they... So they feel a little tight like it just needs a little water to kind of go ahhhhh, you know and all the all the yarns kind of settle in with each other and Marsha 38:56 It needs a spa day! Kelly 38:57 It does! [laughing] It needs a spa day. There's a little bit of tension in that sweater that needs to be released. So it's sitting here right now but I'm really happy with it. I like the pattern. I like the size of it. I like the length of it. I like the pockets. So I you know had to sew the backs on the pockets and I've done pockets before but not like this. I like the pockets. They're really not large. Robert said, well do your hands even fit in there and I said these are not pockets for my hands. These are pretty much not pockets for anything. Because it looks frumpy, you know? If you... well, because what I stuff into pockets are my keys and Kleenex and then yes, big lump on the side of your body. So I don't think I'm going to use the pockets. And also, if you do use keys in your pockets in a knit sweater like this you wear a hole in the bottom of the pocket. So I don't intend to use these pockets very much at all, but they do look nice. There's nice detail on the front of the sweater. I love the square collar, the cable detail on the sleeves is nice. And it's just enough. You know it's not like... the Dark and Stormy had cable detail on the back and this one doesn't. It's just solid on the back. But it's nice. I like the cable down the sleeves and then a little touch of that same cable at the pockets. So yeah, I finished it. Very excited. Yeah, so that's done. And then I've also been... I just kind of gone...I've just kind of gone crazy on that Pebblebrook Beanie by Wish Upon a Hook. I made nine of them total, I think, Marsha 40:49 Oh, wow. Kelly 40:49 You know, I had started making them out of the leftovers from Faye's blanket the last time we talked and then I went on to use some of that German town. Super yarn Mart! with an exclamation point, German Town worsted. I used up... I had a I had a skein, like a skein and a half of that, maybe two more skeins. Anyway, it takes more than one skein to make a hat so so I had a skein and a little, at least a little bit more than that. So I made one hat in that solid. I made another hat with the yarn from the Dark and Stormy that's leftover. I have so much leftover handspun. So I did that. I found singles yarn that I had spun and dyed in this kind of ice blue color and I finished that hat. And then yesterday I just decided I was going to make one last one. And so I cast on. Actually I guess it was the day before yesterday. I cast on the one last hat of 2021 and it's out of the color, and my project page doesn't show it, but it's that teal green Chickadee that I have that I got from NoCKRs destash. I think I got it from Julie JChant. Yeah. So I used that up. I just was kind of going to town using up using up scraps. So I got a lot of those done and I'm now currently knitting on one more... Marsha 42:30 You're knitting? Kelly 42:30 Or crocheting, crocheting rather Yeah, crocheting one more out of a skein of Invictus worsted weight yarn that I got from the the yarn club that I was in. It's a gray and kind of teal, green, and yellow. Pretty color. And it's the first one that I've made out of a variegated yarn. So I've done solids, I've done stripes. I've done small stripes. I've done big stripes. Now I'm doing variegated. So yeah, I'm a big fan of this, of this hat pattern. And I just I mean, it takes about a skein to make one hat depending on the size of the skein. It takes about a skein, yeah, to make one hat and, and I've just been going to town! So I've got only two active projects right now. One is this hat that I just started today as we were getting ready to record and then I have a pair of socks that I'm working on that's out of that Bob Ross happy little mistakes yarn from the Weird Sisters Wool Emporium in Aberdeen. So those are my only two active projects that I have. Yeah, I pretty much cleaned out the project page. By the end of the by the end of the year, which was kind of fun. Marsha 43:48 Yeah, well, that's it for projects. We need to talk about our, our alongs we're having. Kelly 43:56 So yeah, Marsha, you're right, we do need to talk about our alongs. For example, our crochet along. It's ending on the 10th of January. Marsha 44:07 Yes. I better get going. [laughing] Kelly 44:15 I've knit, er, I've crocheted enough of these pebblebrook hats for the both of us I think. [laughing] Marsha 44:22 Well, my plan was that when I arrived--but my plan was to be down there in California to have you help me with the the mitts, the paving mitts but that didn't happen Kelly 44:34 And I didn't dig out my Tunisian crochet, double ended Tunisian crochet hook which I'm not sure where it is. But I will talk about this in our next episode -- I am doing sort of a tossing of the stash and reorganizing of all the bags with bits and bobs from previous projects and stuff. So I will find them at some point. But I don't even know where they are. So even if you were here, I'm not sure I would have been able to help you with the with double ended hooks because I don't know where I put them Marsha 45:10 The next crochet along, maybe then I'll get those mitts done, because I do like them. But anyway, okay. So shall we let's talk about the crochet along. Yeah, that's so that actually it started in November. And as you said it ends January 10. And should we talk about some of the things people have been doing? So yeah, because people have been doing some pretty interesting things. Kelly 45:35 Some kind of inspiring things too. I've got some ideas for after the crochet along is over of things that might do with some of my stash. There's been a couple of really interesting baskets. So SuperKip, she made a crochet basket. And then JoyLaine also made a crochet basket. She used scraps in hers and I was thinking, Oh, that might be kind of nice. A nice way to use them. A lot of my spirit yarn. So that might be something in my future, one of those crochet baskets. Marsha 46:13 Did you see PurpleDogwood and all the Santa hats? Kelly 46:17 Oh my gosh, yes. And she also made pumpkin hats. Yes, all those baby hats for the hospital! That was very cool to see her project. Yeah, the Santa and pumpkin has are super cute. Quite a lot of toys. We had KnitnAround make a rabbit toy. And the vbirdflies, she made a hedgehog. Super cute hedgehog and a dinosaur. Triceratops maybe? I can't remember now which kind of dinosaur but so that was cute, to see those toys. You know, I'm a sucker for crochet toys. In fact, on Christmas day, my my brother-in-law, he thanked me again and told me how much he appreciated the Star Wars characters that I made that one year. All those little Star Wars characters. So yeah, he... and and the funny thing is he he said, I don't think he listens this far into the show, but he did say that he likes to listen to our banter at the beginning. Marsha 47:25 Oh, yeah? Kelly 47:25 So Ron, Ron listens to the first like 10 or 15 minutes of our podcast. Enough time. He doesn't stay for the knitting, but he likes to hear the little, all the stuff that's going on. So anyway, I thought that was fun. But yeah, crochet toys are a lot of fun. And, and we got a few of them in the in this crochet along. So that was kind of cool to see. Marsha 47:51 Well, and super Kip also made the really cute activity cube. Did you see that? Kelly 47:56 Yes, yes. In fact, when she first started and she said she was making the Moses basket, and she was gonna make a baby toy. I'm like, Oh, is there an announcement? Do you have an announcement for? But, no, it's a friend's baby. But yeah, that's a really cute idea. With the little things hanging down and a little... like a little ring crocheted onto it and little rattle crocheted into it. It's very... Yeah, when she first talked about it, the activity cube, I've seen like puzzle cubes. That's what I was thinking she was making till I saw the the finished, the finished result. I've seen they have these like three dimensional puzzles, where all the pieces fit together into something you know. That like they make a circle or, or maybe they make a cube. I don't know. I just I when I was looking at baby toy at one point I saw all of these baby toys. Crochet baby toys where the pieces all fit together into a like a puzzle into a different shape. And I thought, Oh, that'd be kind of fun to to make, but I haven't ever attempted anything like that. And then yeah, Mary, she made a dog bed. Marsha 49:19 Mm hmm. Kelly 49:20 It ooked really super soft and cuddly. Oh, maybe Minnie would like that. Our cat would like that. Marsha 49:28 Yeah, there's a really cute things. Kelly 49:32 Oh, you know what else I need to mention. It's a Misnim. She's making a crochet cocoon, which is like a sweater. Kind of like my Habitat sweater. I don't even know how to describe it? As kind of like a big shrug? I guess it's a good way to describe it. Full size, you know, full sweater size shrug. Anyway, she's making it but she's making it out of the Stonehedge Crazy yarn. She has all the skeins in the picture and it just made me think of when we were in Eugene. And we had all that yarn all over. [laughing] Marsha 50:22 Yeah those... they were so sweet to us because they didn't... they said they knew that because no two skeins are alike. So everybody just basically pulls everything out of the shelf and lays it on the floor, which is what we did so. So I saw her picture, but I didn't realize that's what she was made. Yeah, so, Oh, yes. Very cool. Nice colors, too. I love that yarn. Kelly 50:24 I know, it kind of made me think about... kind of me think about going and buying some more of that yarn. Because that was really, that was really fun yarn to knit with. And then MimiFan, she made a bathroom mat that she's actually not sure she likes. I don't know, she was threatening to rip it out. And, I said, Well, you know, if you decide you don't like it, you could always just give it to the dog as , you know, a dog bed. To stick it on like a little blanket on the dog bed or a pad inside the crate if she crates her dog. Anyway, yeah, it was, um, it was kind of funny because she was like, I'm not sure I like it but I finished it. Not sure I like it. But at least it's finished. So that's good. Yeah, you can decide if you like it enough to keep it or if you want to do something else with it. But I have had projects like that. Not too many. But I have had projects like that where it's like, okay, I'm just glad this is finished. And I don't think I even... Marsha 51:48 I'm gonna, I'm actually gonna quote from her. She says, I've been working on this bathmat for 11 months. I hate it so much. That's more dramatic than the way you described it. [laughing] Kelly 52:03 I was trying to be gentle. [laughing] Marsha 52:09 She says I hate it so much. But it's done except for weaving in ends. And I used up every bit of yarn that I bought. My bathroom is small, and it's a weird shape. So many errors. I may just end up throwing it away. But I'll give it a few weeks since it took so long to make. It needs some ends woven and some washing to flatten it out. I'm so happy it's done. Anyway, that's funny to me Kelly 52:33 Yeah, I think everybody can relate. Everybody's got one of the projects that like just became an albatross, you know, after a while. And it really, yeah, it's so funny. I had a weaving project, a linen weaving project. And I forgot how furry the linen was because it's a real rustic linen. And so you know, there's a technique where you, you soak it in gelatin to kind of make all that stick down. Marsha 53:05 Oh, right. Kelly 53:05 So it doesn't rub on the heddles and stuff. And I had forgotten about that technique. So I got it all threaded. Now starting to wind on and the little threads were catching everywhere. And I thought oh yeah, I need to do this technique. Well, I didn't want to unthread it, right? So I soaked it in gelatin while it was on my loom. But I also didn't look up the real recipe for the gelatin that you make. I just use the gelatin packet like gelatin. And so when I got done and I like squeezed it all out, it became like these like solid... You know, like each group of maybe 20 or 30 threads became like this solid rope of stuck together. Marsha 53:54 Yeah. Yeah. Kelly 53:55 And so then it sat on my loom like that for about four months, maybe longer. And it's like, well, I have to do something with it because it was destash I mean, it was you know, it was spirit yarn. But like it's linen, you know. And finally I forget what whose project I read about, but it was like... I was like okay, yeah, I need to soak it in water. Get some of that extra gelatin out. Let it dry again. I don't want to pull it out because it's all threaded on the loom. Oh you know, so I'll just try to do it around my loom and then finally I thought you know what? I'm just done. I cut the thing off. I threw it all away and I felt so good. I felt... I didn't even try to salvage it. I just cut the thing off and threw it in the garbage or threw it in the compost. I don't know, probably the compost because it was linen but like, I felt so good. It was so such a relief to get that dog off my loom. I mean, it was terrible. That project was a terrible thing. And I was dumb. I should have, you know, I could have... I thought I was saving time by not taking it off and redoing it. I could have redone it 17,000 times in the time that it sat on my loom preventing me from working other projects. So anyway, I can feel for for you, MimiFan. I don't know what the status of your bathmat is now but I do understand the sentiment. Marsha 55:30 You have permission to throw it away if it'll make you feel right! Kelly 55:33 Exactly. It does feel good sometimes. Yeah. So yeah, the crochet along is going really well. I have to say, I miss Amy. We lost her last year. She died. And she's really missed in the the thread, GreenHook. She was always a big poster in the crochet along thread and just in the in the Morning Coffee and different threads, she would post her crochet projects. And that loss is... It was a year, a little over a year ago that she died. And yeah, I miss her right now. Marsha 56:05 That loss is felt. Kelly 56:15 Yeah, yeah. So, but our crochet along ends January 10. We'll be drawing prizes in our next episode. So you still have time to get a project in. So get out your hook and make a project. There's one thread. here's a chatter thread and I just I just added the FOs to that chatter thread. So if you've been waiting for a finished object thread to post in, you can just post in your pictures and your information in the chatter thread and we'll draw prizes from from that. It's small enough that... you know the the number of participants is small enough that I think it will just be better to draw from the from the chat thread. Yeah, so make sure you post your your finished object pictures in there. And come chat about people's crochet in the next couple...week and a half or so. Marsha 57:11 Yeah. And then we just have to mention that the winner weave along is still going on and ends the end of March. Okay, well, I think that's about it. Is there anything else we need to talk about? Kelly 57:23 i don't think so. Marsha 57:25 We could go on another hour. Kelly 57:27 knowing we could next episode, I'm going to talk a little bit about my sort of reviewing last year. And then some things that I want to do. Because I just started today with that tossing of my stash, you know, going through my yarn and coming to realizations about what I do have and the real truth about the yarn I have as opposed to what I think in my head when I'm not looking at it all. So so that'll be next. Now I'll, I'm going to do some reflection on that. And we'll talk a little bit about that next time. So I don't know you've, you've looked at your yarn recently and gotten rid of a whole bunch of stuff, so I don't Yeah, Marsha 58:17 I did a big I did a big tossing of the stash and that's another reason why I've been kind of fun to be down there is to help you do the tossing of the stash. Kelly 58:25 The possible tossing out of of the stash [laughing] Yeah, we'll see. We'll see. But right now I just... we'll talk more about it. But you know, you get inspiration when you look at it. So I've got it out so I can look at it all and see if I come up with some inspirations. And then I'm some of my inspirations might be similar to that bathroom mat and my gelatin weaving my gelatin linen weaving project. We will see! Marsha 58:58 You have permission to put it in the compost pile. [laughing] Kelly 59:01 Well, I will report. I will report back in two weeks what the status is of some of that. Of some of that stuff. I've already started throwing away the little like, you know, you have a walnut sized ball of yarn. Marsha 59:18 Oh, right. Kelly 59:19 Yeah, really? Do I need to save a walnut sized ball of yarn? Marsha 59:24 I don't know. Kelly. I have a whole box of walnut sized bits of yarn. [laughing] Kelly 59:30 Bits of string to small to use. Marsha 59:33 Yes. And and they're actually in a box labeled "too small to use." [laughing] Kelly 59:38 Yes. Okay. Marsha 59:42 All right. All right. We're gonna go. I really have to go now because Enzo is now sitting here at nudging me. It's dinner time. Yeah, it's dinner time. So all right. Okay. We'll talk in two weeks about what's going on with that stash. Okay. Kelly 59:55 And Happy New Year to you and Happy New Year to everyone listening! Marsha 1:00:01 Yes, Happy New Year. Alrighty. Bye! Kelly 1:00:03 Bye bye.

Hello hello and Happy New Year to all. Recently I had the pleasure of talking to a couple of former residents of my childhood home on 10th street in Aberdeen WA. They lived there as kids in the late fifties and moved out when their father died in 1960. For years I wondered what had happened to those kids, roughly my age, that lived there before us. It turns out they used the same rec room for shows and rehearsals as we did years later. There was a room that just called out for audiences and performers. They knew the neighborhood and some of the same teachers and businesses that have since passed. I think it's always comforting to know that the house you once lived in, had spent special occasions in, slept and grew in is still there and being cared for properly. Houses have soul. But the music in the house, and I noticed this right when we started to move in, seemed to be there for the taking. There was a jukebox full of 78 rpm records left behind. There was that but there was an inherent sense of “hey, my uncle has a barn, let's put on a show” to it. And they did and so did we. We had rock bands as we got older and into the 70s. What started as little kid marionette shows and really crappy cover bands morphed into a band that would open for Heart and the Ramones and would carry on a tradition in Aberdeen. A tradition of good music that doesn't really have a start and a finish. But, I have to say when I got off the phone with the former kids of my house, for the rest of the day I felt I'd just seen a great movie. An unforeseen feel good flick. In this show we'll feature a few of my friends, Dean Backholm and the Murchy Brothers that played in this particular basement rec room for some formative years when we cranked our amps up to 11 and shook the glasses off the bar shelves. Our next guest can relate to this band start up thing. Chris James is the current main vocalist of the Burrito Brothers, be they Flying or Notorious Burrito brothers. The band that laid the eggs for the Byrds and the Eagles. Love is a River from the Flying Burrito Brothers' Notorious Burrito Brothers album. And my life brothers that were a huge part of the Aberdeen 10th Street rec room Ed Sullivan show, here's On the Harbor by the Murchy Brothers. And Montreal by Dean Backholm. My new friends that used to occupy my childhood home before me, Morry and Judy, are awesome and I'm so glad we talked for an hour or so. It sounds like an episode to me. It already sounds like “hey, my uncle has a barn, let's put on a show!” Well, I know now they moved to California. Thanks so much for the listen. Let's make 2022 a year of less blame and shame and more Better Each Day. Support this podcast

Hello hello and Merry Christmas to all. There's been a generous response from our listeners regarding hometown nostalgia material on the show. Being from middle- everything Aberdeen WA in the early baby boomer years, there are endless small town-everywhere stories for you.  I somehow gravitate to stories about my Dad, Dr. Glenn A. Hilliard, DVM. (reverb)  Christmas is extra special when your dad is a veterinarian. A vet is the guy you call on Sunday night because your kid, a human kid, has a fever. The reason the callers would call the vet and not an MD?: “I can't call my people doctor, it's Sunday evening.” So they called Dad, the town veterinarian. Sometimes it was serious. Or sometimes just a comforting word from a trusted doctor was all it took. The call was always during dinner. It wasn't uncommon to hear the the caller's voice freaking out in Dad's ear with “my cow broke his leg, fell in the river, drifted downstream for a spell and is stuck on a snag and gettin' dark.” When I was a small boy I was told by classmates that “your dad…he killed my cat.” Later in life I heard my peers say “Thank God for you dad, he saved my cat.” Even as a snot nose kid I knew my dad wasn't in the business of killing cats. He was crazy devoted and had a gift both earned and inborn. It's raining and dark. It is evident Dad is the only vet available in the entire free world, so out he goes to save a cow…on a Sunday night. A cold outside but warm inside Disney, Ed Sullivan Bonanza Sunday night. Christmas was a special time for Dad's employees at the Aberdeen Animal Hospital. He always felt Christmas day was a day for people to be home with their families. So, in order to accommodate his helpers, Santa Dad would give them all Christmas day off. This meant Dad worked Christmas day and we spoiled baby boomers got to open presents on Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve…a night of magic. This changed everything for us present openers. My two brothers and I were always stoked to open presents on Christmas Eve to allow the Christmas day off for “the girls” as he called them. Christmas Eve, like every day at closing, dogs and cats are fed, treated and cages cleaned. I was sure to tell the animals I could get them out on good behavior. But on Christmas Eve there were secret little boy conversations with the inmates. The cats especially. They've always got a plan. Hello hello hello and Merry Christmas little orphaned kittens. Don't worry. My dad won't let nothin' happen to ya. He'll keep all of you until he finds homes for you. Kittens are fun but even more so--sometimes I'd take a cage full of puppies out for a roll on the floor. Puppy breath. There was a certain silence in the animal world on Christmas Eve, just me and Dad this year.  Wet food, dry food, an occasional pill, special tuna for the meow meow that won't eat.  Some of the animals were there strictly as hotel guests for the holidays. No Bing Crosby at this dive. It was clear the fuzzies were a bit broken-hearted about not being home with their families. As the evening got closer and closer to dad and I locking the doors and heading home for the annual Christmas Eve unwrapping, the gang gets gradually louder until it sounds like a rock concert with a dog and cat mosh pit. Class, class, class, SHUT UP!!! Thank you. All they need is some lovin'. Finally we're done with the tasks required to secure Noah's Arc and go home to see what's under the tree. The lights are out. It's dark except for the glow from ultraviolet lights. We're almost out of the building when there's a scratch at the front door. I could see through the glass it was a large brown dog with a sad expression. Dad opened the door and in limped a big wet dog with no signs of an owner. He looked tired and neglected. Dad had him up on the table, treated and bandaged his right front paw. I gave the patient a milk bone and out he went. Not thirty seconds later he scratched at the door again.  Dad...

Hello to you listening in Aberdeen, South Dakota!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday.As a child I wanted to be a stage actress. I loved the theater. I took siblings to Broadway plays as a rite of passage. The stage play South Pacific played a part in my decision to become a US Navy nurse. But, I never acted in any plays.That part was taken by my sister, Marilyn: high school, college, grad school, repertory theater and local plays. For her has been the roar of the greasepaint, the smell of the crowd.Me? I love language and people to share it with. So I created a storytelling, podcasting, coaching life.Here's the thing: Life will take us on so many journeys. We are walking our lives and then Life walks us. We make some gains, we realize some losses. But is there ever real closure over the losses? Perhaps we just incorporate what we've experienced into the next incarnation of our life.Question: What did you gain when you experienced what felt like a loss?      60 Seconds is your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.

Improving the status quo: can severe asthma be better treated?

Everyone knows somebody who has asthma. 5.4 million people in the UK are currently receiving treatment and 200,000 of them have severe asthma. A form of the condition that doesn't typically respond well to medication. For many, asthma is a severe and debilitating condition but there exists a disconnect between its severity and the organisation of resources to treat it. When it comes to treating an illness, remission is rarely black and white, but for asthma it's commonly steroids. What if anything is the alternative? Steroids have become the frenemy of both patients and the healthcare system. On the one hand, they're cheap to administer and largely effective. But on the other, the side effects they produce can be very difficult for patients and costly. Joining Kate Andrews to discuss all this is Gabby Perry, who is a student and has severe asthma; Syed Ali, medical affairs manager at AstraZeneca; David Price, professor of primary respiratory medicine at the University of Aberdeen who's currently leading the first international severe asthma registry. This podcast is kindly sponsored and co-created by AstraZeneca. The patient's individual experience of severe asthma and discussion in this podcast are not medical advice. If you have questions about your own health please discuss with your health care professional.

Join Annie and Jenny as they get in the festive mood and journey back to the Yuletide crimes of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The reformation resulted in the banning of many celebrations, including yuletide festivities. Those caught celebrating were brought before the Kirk Sessions, and this resulted in strangely detailed records of the celebratory practices of the time. Guising and cross-dressing, dancing, eating goose, and baking bread were all punishable by law, listen in to find out more about each tradition. This episode is sponsored by Scotland Shop.

Off the water is back on the airwaves as most of the team were back on the real waves over the summer. However as the longer nights set in we are excited to be able to share some of the inspiring stories from 2021.   Robyn Phillips joins Marc Turner as the host of this episode, as Robyn has probably done the most sailing this summer, from cruising, instruction, coaching and racing, both keelboats and dinghies, however she caught wind of an adventure that some of the young people at Aberdeen and Stonehaven Yacht Club (ASYC) undertook in dinghy cruising and went to find out more.   “As an instructor it's great to see young people challenge themselves to experience new things and this story resonated with me for that reason. Personally I also have always liked a good adventure, camping and the great outdoors as well and linking this to sailing is the cherry on top for an adventure!” This adventure was a collaboration between ASYC, Dundee SC and Perth SC; a unique Duke of Edinburgh expedition; and the chance for young people to experience the challenge of a dinghy trip up the River Tay. Shona Coull, Sam Carroll, Daniel Clarkson, Lyall Webster and Ditta Neuman joined Robyn to look back at the expedition in conversation and what the adventure it meant to them.  This success with developing junior and family membership has been a big part of what has seen Aberdeen and Stonehaven Yacht Club shortlisted for club of the year.  It is clear young people matter to the club and that there are multiple pathways to allow them to participate and contribute.

CHINA TO ALLOCATE 38.5 BILLION YUAN WORTH OF NEV SUBSIDIES IN 2022 - China plans to appropriate around 38.5 billion yuan ($6.033 billion) next year to subsidize the projects for saving energy and cutting carbon emissions, according to a notice recently issued by China's Ministry of Finance. - China hopes new energy vehicle (NEV) sales can reach around 20% of all car sales in 2025, China's State Council said in Nov. 2020 in a plan for development of the NEV sector.For the first ten months of 2021, NEV sales in China amounted to 2.542 million units, accounting for 12.12% of the country's total new car sales Original Source : https://autonews.gasgoo.com/m/70019227.html AROUND 1,000 SPANISH PETROL STATIONS INSTALL ELECTRIC CAR CHARGING POINTS - Around 1,000 Spanish petrol stations must install electric car charging points - The Government of Spain continues to move forward with its strategy for the growth of the electric car in Spain. A proposal has reportedly just been released to public information by the Ministry for the Environment (Miteco). - It included a ministerial order that establishes a list of fuel supply facilities, along with fuels required to install electric recharging infrastructures, as well as the exceptions and technical impossibilities for its fulfillment. - more than 1,000 petrol stations across Spain, with sales of more than five million litres per year, or relevant weight, must install at least one charging point for electric vehicles. - Within a period of 21 months from the entry into force of the aforementioned Law, that is, February 2023, service stations with sales of more than 10 million litres of petrol and diesel in 2019 must install at least one 150 kW recharging point. Original Source : https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2021/11/28/around-1000-spanish-petrol-stations-must-install-electric-car-charging-points/ THE UK'S NATIONAL HIGHWAYS TO TRY BATTERY STORAGE - The UK government has said that around 20 energy storage systems are to be deployed at service stations where the grid supply is not always sufficient to support high power charging stations. - National Highways aims to invest £11 million and is currently discussing the possibilities with prospective suppliers. Within the next two years, the plan is to install what will essentially be giant battery units that will connect to the motorway services operators' charge points. - Malcolm Wilkinson, Head of Energy for National Highways, said: “Whilst we have limited control over the number of petrol and diesel cars on the network, by supporting the expansion of the rapid charge points network, we hope to increase EV drivers' confidence for all types of journeys, both long and short.” Original Source : https://www.electrive.com/2021/11/29/the-uks-national-highways-to-try-battery-storage/ BMW I4 CUSTOMER DELIVERIES BEGIN IN GERMANY THREE MONTHS EARLY - Customer deliveries of the first i4 EVs began at the BMW Welt in Munich last weekend, three months earlier than the automaker originally planned. Bernhard Kuhnt, senior vice president BMW Group Market Germany, said that demand for the i4 is very high. - On the occasion, BMW i4 owners were invited to an accompanying program around the fully-electric Gran Coupe in Munich. - The BMW i4 is available in two variants at launch, the single motor i4 eDrive40 and dual motor i4 M50. Both feature an 83.9 kWh lithium ion battery pack (80.7 kwh net capacity) enabling an estimated range of 300 miles (482 km) for the former and 245 miles (394 km) for the latter (both for the US market). - “With the BMW i4, we have absolutely struck a chord. You can see this from the very high demand for this car. We are delighted to be expanding our electrified product line-up with this sporty, fully-electric Gran Coupé at exactly the right time and to present the first vehicles to our customers today – three months earlier than originally planned. The first delivery of a BMW i4 today, and the first BMW iX in about a week, are further milestones for the BMW Group on the road to electromobility.” Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/551178/bmw-i4-first-customer-deliveries/ BMW EDRIVE ZONES NOW AVAILABLE IN 138 EUROPEAN CITIES - The BMW Group is introducing its innovative eDrive Zones in another 20 European cities, including Copenhagen, Verona and Toulouse. This means that a total of 138 cities in Europe are now benefiting from this trailblazing technology. The service is expected to be rolled out in at least another 30 cities worldwide in the coming year. - In an eDrive Zone, BMW plug-in hybrid vehicles automatically switch to all-electric driving mode upon entering inner city areas. Then, the plug-in hybrid models drive locally emission-free – just like purely electric vehicles – and with low fuel costs, as electric motors are much more efficient than combustion engines for driving in city traffic. The vehicle recognises the designated areas using geofencing technology and GPS. The automated eDrive feature is available as standard in many existing and all future BMW plug-in hybrids. Drivers are rewarded with bonus points for each all-electric kilometre driven – and with double points in an eDrive Zone – which they can redeem for charging credit. In turn, drivers also collect bonus points while charging their vehicle. - The 20 latest cities to be added are: Aberdeen, Bregenz, Brescia, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Copenhagen, Cork, Coventry, Florence, Klagenfurt, Lille, Matosinhos, Naples, Oeiras, Oxford, Sheffield, St. Pölten, Toulouse and Verona.

The electric van has been equipped with new 52 kWh batteries, an addition that increases the vehicle's effective range to 190 km. - The battery storage capacity of the Renault Trucks electric Master has increased to to 52 kWh - from 33 kWh. The new capacity thus extends the vehicle's effective range to 190 km (WLTP City cycle range of 244 km). With a fast charger, the Renault Trucks Master Z.E. is now 80% charged in 2 hours and reaches full charge in 3 hours.

Dubbed Hyundai Home, the service will provide one-stop shopping for these products to Hyundai customers, the automaker said in a press release. It's scheduled to launch in certain markets in 2022. - A service integrating home charging, solar, and energy storage could be a great complement to the Hyundai Ioniq 5 crossover. Charging an electric car from a home solar installation reduces that car's overall carbon footprint and the owner's dependence on the grid. The Ioniq 5 is also equipped for bidirectional charging, potentially allowing it to discharge some power into energy storage battery packs when needed. - The launch of Hyundai Home also builds on the automaker's previous hints that the Ioniq sub-brand will span beyond cars. The Ioniq 5 itself will also be available through an innovative lease that will let intenders try before they buy. Hyundai has said research indicates likely EV buyers are big users of subscription services, so a different leasing model was worth trying.

According to Electrek, a spokesperson for the Germany Economy Ministry confirmed the news in a statement. - After the news came out, CEO Musk made a comment that suggested Tesla withdrew the applications because it does not want any subsidies. Meanwhile, the Financial Times went into the details of the programme and found a clause that might be the cause of withdrawal. Companies are not eligible for the funds if they have already deployed the same battery production at another plant, the report citing FT, said. - The publication suggested that ongoing delays in achieving approval to start production at Gigafactory Berlin could make Tesla ineligible for the funds since it is also deploying battery production at Gigafactory Texas and Shanghai.

Shao-yun Yang's The Way of the Barbarians: Redrawing Ethnic Boundaries in Tang and Song China (University of Washington Press, 2019) challenges assumptions that the cultural and socioeconomic watershed of the Tang-Song transition (800–1127 CE) was marked by a xenophobic or nationalist hardening of ethnocultural boundaries in response to growing foreign threats. In that period, reinterpretations of Chineseness and its supposed antithesis, “barbarism,” were not straightforward products of political change but had their own developmental logic based in two interrelated intellectual shifts among the literati elite: the emergence of Confucian ideological and intellectual orthodoxy and the rise of neo-Confucian (daoxue) philosophy. New discourses emphasized the fluidity of the Chinese-barbarian dichotomy, subverting the centrality of cultural or ritual practices to Chinese identity and redefining the essence of Chinese civilization and its purported superiority. The key issues at stake concerned the acceptability of intellectual pluralism in a Chinese society and the importance of Confucian moral values to the integrity and continuity of the Chinese state. Through close reading of the contexts and changing geopolitical realities in which new interpretations of identity emerged, this intellectual history engages with ongoing debates over relevance of the concepts of culture, nation, and ethnicity to premodern China. This is a really important work in understanding how ethnicity was articulated in premodern China. The implications of Yang's detailed and meticulous study make it must-read for anyone interested in the intellectual and political history of China, that includes not only for those concerned with the Middle Period, but also both the classical, late imperial, and modern periods.  Lance Pursey is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Aberdeen. He works on the history and archaeology of the Liao dynasty, and therefore is drawn to complicated questions of identity in premodern China like a moth is drawn to flame.
