In this week’s episode, Sandy discusses her broken arm and surgery. Here’s hoping for a quick and full recovery! She has figured out how to knit with her splint/cast using Peruvian Knitting.

Kelly talked about her recent trip to Maryland Sheep and Wool! It was her first visit to the festival and she cannot wait to go back! Here is a list of the vendors she talked about (and made purchases from:

Spunky Eclectic

Miss Babs

The Rosefield

Fiber Optic Yarns

Hobbledehoy

The Homestead Hobbyist

KnittyandColor

Into the Whirled

Marigold Jen

In addition to these purchases, Kelly also bought 2 spindles from Snyder Spindles. They are both the 45 style (one is 3D printed and the other is wood). Here is the YouTube video she spoke about demonstrating how to use the spindles for the Ply on the Fly technique.

That’s it for this week! See you all at the end of May!

Taking an unexpected “break” this week

We are not recording our episode this week. We should be back with an episode in a few weeks (with slightly less knitting content over the next several shows because Sandy broke her arm).
