Episode 79 – Of Sizing and Things

PlayPlay

Today is an FO, a WIP, some Spinning, some Acquisitions, and I tell you about 2 new podcasts I’ve started watching! Enjoy!

Show Season – Smoky Mountain Fiber Arts Festival and Stitches South are this weekend, the Middle Tennessee Fiber Fest is May 23 and 24 in Dickson, TN.

FO: Bonnie Wee Mouse

WIP: Champagne Linen Tank, with a discussion on sizing. In fact, much more of a discussion than I had planned.

Spinning: Highland Handmade SW BFL in Chunky Dunk colorway, with a discussion of opposing 3-ply and S/Z directionality in spinning. Thanks again, sillyfru for the fabulous gift.

Acquisitions: my recycled sari ribbon yarn came, and I split a pound of batts with CaffeinatedGert at the Tennessee Valley Handspinner’s Guild meeting.

I’m watching two new podcasts: Brochet with celticlucas and Smells Like Yarn with scrappylad, both on youtube. Check the guys out!
