All links to Ravelry are labelled as such. I try to include links to outside websites as much as possible. At this time, I am not including links for purchasing yarns, needles, etc. If I do, they will also be appropriately labelled. As a quick reminder: I am not affiliated with any businesses. If you’d like to show your support of the podcast, please rate and review on your listening device, follow me on instagram, and / or join the ravelry discussion group (ravelry link) if it is safe for you to do so.

We finally have a better title for the segment! Since I was on a working-vacation (for me at least) I was fairly single minded and working on all of the MHK level 1 swatches. I used two new colors. Duck Egg Blue and Aran.
The Clun Forest fleece is still being spun on. This episode I mentioned that I am plying from the bobbins, but this has not been as much of a focus as the MHK swatches.

The Chandelure socks (ravelry link) from Operation Sock Drawer (what!what!) needed to be frogged. They were simply too small.
My re-start on the MHK swatches needed to be re-started. My gauge and tension have changed and I ended up needing to change needles. Of course that means that all the progress I had made was null.

Some of the new roses are blooming! The Flamenco and Brigadoon roses both had buds and blooms. My edible garden has expanded due to a gift of two raised planters from a neighbor. They will be growing herbs and peppers.
