Episode 108 – Shakers and Soapboxes

PlayPlay

I’m going on a mini-break this weekend, so quick show notes now! Project details can be found on my project pages!

FO: #everystitcheveryprayerforfru “Brave” socks

WIP: SPAKAL 2012 handspun sweater

Spinning: Dragonfly Fibers Polwarth/Silk – unknown weight, yardage – not even washed yet.

Soapbox: A public response to this editorail comment. Your pharmacist IS a doctor. Not an M.D., but a Pharm.D., and we’re here to help keep you safe. We’re all human, even your physician, and we can all make mistakes. (also: I now realize the author of this letter was a man. I kept saying “she.” Another adendum: If you only have one pharmacy, the pharmacist will have access to our entire prescriptions history and be better able to make judgement calls without calling the physician)

Shakers: here’s a link to the wikipedia article on them, if you want to learn. Here’s a link to the Pleasant Hill Shaker Village if you’re interested in seeing where we went!

Episode 107 – Pajama Party!

PlayPlay

This week, it was cold and I didn’t want to get out of my jammies. So I didn’t.

FO – Lace Swatch Wall Hanging – Yarns and patterns used are on the pattern page. Detailed pictures to come. Frame 9.99USD at TJ Maxx.

Spinning WIP – Firecracker Polwarth Roving from Dragonfly Fibers.

I drone on about the new Interweave Knits (Winter 2015) and my dislike for bobbles, but most things would be okay without them, and also that the one pattern I really liked, well, it’s knit end-to-end and kitchnered shut. So, no thanks.

PlayPlay

So, there are fun technical difficulties.

Hey, ktaboh – you won the Twist Fiber Studios fiber!! You and CarolinaSpinner can get in touch regarding the details of how you will come to have the beautiful gradient in your hands!

The Featured FO this week is from Dutchgirl63. She shared a pretty darned awesome 3 in 1 she calls Tickled by Strength of the Moon. Thanks for sharing and beautiful job, Monique!

My WIPS are my #everystitcheveryprayerforfru socks and my SPAKAL 2012 – yes, this has been ongoing for more than 2 years now.

I went to Fiber in the Boro! I patroned P is for PrimitiveRiver’s Edge Fiber Arts, Unwind Yarn Company, The Color Wheel Yarn, Kim’s Nest, and Fringe. What a fun trip with beautiful things to see and fun friends to spend the day with, even if it was SO COLD!
