Jessica: Not this time

Out And About/Where The Wild Things Are:

Join in on our chatting thread here! We’d love to cheer you on as you spin during the Tour!

  • Winner for the 6 in 18 May/June segment: MOescrochet! Please contact Dana via Ravelry PM by July 23 to claim your prize! The prize is a project bag of your choice from The Project Bag’s Etsy shop. There are still 18 of you in the yearlong giveaway- keep going! 🙂
  • No more fiber from Unwind due to Dana’s fiber supplier’s decision to stop selling fiber in quantities that small businesses can afford. But in happier news, Unwind has new Nailed It! Yarn and Color Street strips sets coming out on Thursday! Due to Color Street rules Dana has to sell them only in her Color Street Facebook group, but will put up previews in the Unwind Instagram account on Wednesday (@unwindyarncompany). If you’re interested, be sure to join the Facebook group prior to Thursday!!
  • Into The Wool News: the full attendee list will be posted this coming week, and the period for requesting roommates will be the following week. An email will go out to all attendees prior to the selection period to let you know the exact dates. 
  • NICU Noggins- be sure to check out the thread for all of the details! All hats need to get to Dana by 9/15 so that they’re in before the retreat. There are lots of prizes, and each hat set in is one entry into the prize drawing!

Unwind Yarn Company is going to be at Smoky Mountain Fiber Arts Festival in Townsend TN, April 20-22! Stop by our booth to see beautiful Unwind yarns, gorgeous spinning fibers, and unique yarn bowls! Mention that you’re a Just One More Row listener for a special little something, too! You can visit the shop in the meantime at unwindyarncompany.com

Incoming!!:
Dana: Lenny by Heidi Atwood Reeves (only available via this Craftsy link now- she is no longer selling her patterns on Ravelry)
Jessica: Sister sheep spin sweater- anybody have any ideas? Dana suggested Homegrown, but she’s open to ideas! She wants to make a DK weight cardigan that works well with handspun.

Sew You Say:
Dana: made herself a new Sew Together bag to hold her Color Street stock! She used some long-hoarded Alison Glass that she’d actually bought specifically for this purpose, and it took her most of yesterday. LOL. (Here is the tutorial that goes along with the pattern.) Also she’s been working on a lot of new booth stock for SMFAF.
Jessica: 5 pairs of Acacia panties, two skirts

Where The Wild Things Are:
Dana: Madelyn had croup but they were still able to celebrate Easter! Also, obsessed with sword fighting. 
Jessica: California trip- fun at Disney and with family!

Makers Moment:
Dana: her Costco tomato bit it. Not pleased.
Jessica: Feeling like a sewing fraud because she bought premade skirt fabric!

Review: 51 Yarns To Spin Before You Cast Off by Jacey Boggs Faulkner & Illustrated by Kirsten Slade ($24.00)

  • Really nice paperback- the paper feels like watercolor paper
  • Illustrations are beautiful and inviting
  • From the intro: Your book contains 51 yarns you (and each and every spinner) should spin or attempt to spin in your spinning lifetime. It’s a collection that runs the gamut from standard to what-in-the-world…. Every yarn in your book comes with tips and tricks for spinning, interesting history and trivia, and where you might look to learn.
  • Reading the first chapters of the book is pretty much exactly like the “Drafting: from woolen to worsted” Dana took with Jacey at SSK in 2013; so if you haven’t been able to take the class with Jacey (and getting it on Craftsy isn’t in your budget), this book would be an excellent (and portable!) substitute!

 

Hear Ye, Hear Ye:

 

  • Dana is a Color Street independent stylist! If you’re interested in trying a sample, fill out the Google form here. Also you can see all of the current designs and shop right in her store here: Pampered Nails By Dana. She’d also love to book some nail bars, if anyone is interested in earning credits toward half price or free nail polish strips! They would be Facebook/online parties, and you don’t have to do any of the work! She will take care of everything for you and you can just sit back and reap the rewards!
  • Dana and Tiffany are currently working on lining up sponsors for this year’s Into The Wool. If you’re a yarnie, bagmaker, notions maker, or designer, they’d love to have the opportunity to feature your business! Email them at intothewoolfiberretreat@gmail.com and they will give you all of the info!
  • Dana is going to Maryland Sheep and Wool! If you’re going too, PM her! 🙂
  • One last announcement that they forgot: Dana is getting ready to release a brand new colorway series exclusively through a wholesale client, Stitch Supply Company! She has been dyeing 14 new colorways based on Tula Pink’s brand new All Stars fabric collection! Be sure to follow Dana’s business IG (@unwindyarncompany) and Stitch Supply’s IG (@stitchsupplyco) to find out when the series is releasing! Here are some pics of the colorways (6 variegateds and 8 solids):

Episode 155: I’m Only Fooling Myself!

Thank you for joining us for Episode 155 of Just One More Row, hosted by pbjstokes and danaofunwind! This episode is brought to you by Unwind Yarn Company.

fullsizeoutput_bc5

If you haven’t stopped by the Unwind Yarn Company shop yet this year, you really should! There’s a brand new look to the Unwind logo and labels, and new colorways are popping up weekly, including a new “Perfect Blenders” series that will take the guesswork out of matching up skeins to use together in a project. Stop by Unwind and make any purchase of $30 or more in the months of January and February, and get 15% off your in-stock purchase by using code JOMR15! You can find the shop at unwindyarncompany.com.

Underway:
Dana: Sunset Highway, Lisbon, Pot O’ Gold Socks, bought more FlexiFlips from Candra’s Yarn Paradise

Dana: nothing this time
Jessica: nothing

Incoming!!:
Dana: Santa Clara ($7 Ravelry download) by Mara Catherine Bryner- just released!
Jessica: Check out my instagram videos!

Sew You Say:
Dana: Finished the quilting on a baby quilt and am currently working on hand binding. Keeping up with the Quilter’s Planner Block of the Month quilt so far- only 2 months in. 😉 March is my month to be Queen Bee for the #lowkeybee, and I’ve got my block picked: Lone Starburst! Had to piece the back for the Clam Bake Quilt I mentioned last time, so it just needs to be basted and quilted. I might actually do a bit of fancier quilting on this one, and since it’s for me it’s on the back burner a bit.
Jessica: Nothing

Where The Wild Things Are:
Dana: A mouth injury inadvertently led to the funniest thing she’s ever said to me.
Jessica: Cardboard Sledding

Makers Moment:
Dana: I’ve been working on some embroidery pieces including the Love kit from Brynn and Co (came as a kit with a MollieMakes magazine- my favorite crafting magazine!) and this super cute piece from Tamar Nahir Yanai. I have also been doing a little more sashiko embroidery but am not sure if I’m going to use the pillow panels for pillows, or as quilt blocks.
Jessica: Gardening time again. Broccoli, Zucchini, Cukes, Kale and other cruciferous veggies made it through the winter! (and Dana is going to get these raised garden beds for her house! whee!)

Hear Ye, Hear Ye:

  • Thank you so much to the listener who donated to the show! We really appreciate it! We have a donate button to the right if you’d like to send a few dollars our way- we have a bunch of prizes to ship and patterns to purchase this year. We also really appreciate new iTunes reviews!
  • The first ITW KAL starts on March 1, and the theme is “Thank You For Being A Friend!” If you’re an attendee, be sure that you’re checking in at the ITW Ravelry group periodically, as we are also about to start trivia questions in March for extra points-earning opportunities!
  • We are once again doing NICU Noggins as a KAL for the podcast in 2018, to run concurrently with the ITW KAL. All hats will be donated to the TC Thompson Children’s Hospital NICU/Pediatric Oncology Unit in honor of Dana’s daughter and Jessica’s son, who were both patients in the NICU. For full details about how to participate, please check out the thread in the Ravelry group, and PM Dana for her address when you are ready to mail your hats! 🙂
