Announcements:

  • Thank you to all of our listeners who stopped us and said hi at Rhinebeck! We really enjoyed meeting you.
  • Brittany would like to say- “After giving it a lot of thought, I’ve decided to stop podcasting. So, I’m passing the baton onto the wonderful Jess. She’s been a friend to both of us for a long time and I feel great knowing that Just One More Row is going to keep going with two great co-hosts. I’m so grateful for all the wonderful people I’ve met over the years because of podcasting, and for all of our listeners. Thank you.”
  • Jess and Dana are planning to start an Ornament KAL on November 1! Please stay tuned to the Ravelry group (and our next episode) to find out more! 🙂

WIPs:
Dana: Dutchess, Sock Blank Socks (September)  
Brittany: Yowza Weigh It Shawl

Up & Coming:
#formaeganKAL on IG in honor of Maegan Black, the dyer behind Cyborg’s Craft Room that passed away over the weekend. As a former sponsor, we got to know her a little and have been huge fans of her dyework for years. She was a rockstar with color and will be sorely missed in the yarn community. We plan to use some of our yarn to knit something in Maegan’s memory for the KAL and hope you’ll do the same.

Just One More Craft:
Dana: “Hot Dog” Jane top from Children’s Corner pattern, made my first quilt top! (Jelly Roll Race tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co, website where you can find directions to make a jelly roll quilt of any size)
Brittany: Crybabies podcast

Announcements:

  • Dana is vending EastSide Fiber Festival on 9/17 in Nashville! If you’re local, please consider coming out; if you come around lunch you might catch both of us! 🙂
  • Into The Wool was a great success and I hope some of you will try to come next year! Dana will be coordinating alone, but with a great team of hostesses that will help run activities and make sure things go smoothly when we get there. The dates are still being finalized but it looks like it will be at the end of September, not Labor Day weekend like it has been the last two years. Be sure to join the Ravelry group to find out details as they’re posted!

  • Unwind Yarn Company shop news: introducing DPN WIP cozies for 5-6” DPNs! These won’t be super-regular in the shop since I don’t want to turn sewing into a full-time job in addition to dyeing yarn (*wink*) so get ‘em while they’re hot! Introductory price of $6 apiece while the first batch lasts, then they’ll go up to $8.
  • I’m getting ready to list more new stitched necklaces (including bigger sizes and different shapes!) at Unwind In Stitches! There is still an option to purchase a custom pendant, or you can convo me if you have something in mind you’d like me to make just for you. 🙂
