Greeting, my friends!
First, let me apologize. I left without a word, no note, no warning, and I'm sorry for that! It's been SO LONG and so much has happened. I won't spend all my time today with a blow-by-blow, but in that time I finished my summer knitting classes(more on that in a moment), started a new job and had a minor health crisis. It's been a busy summer!
I did finally manage to get a new episode of my podcast up where you can see some of the great yarny things I've been up to recently! I make no reference to it in the video, but I tacked on some video of a sheep herding demo from a trip to Old Sturbridge Village Wool Days on the end, so make sure you stick around to the end (or if my rambling becomes too much, feel free to skip- it starts at about 50:50)!
Omg, the shoutouts to makers and products! I got a lot of stash into this video considering how short it is, so I'll try to put links to all of the websites below, for your yarny convenience:
Frabjous Fibers = gorgeous purple spinning fiber
The Merlin Tree - maker of my beautiful new spinning wheel
Still River Mill - I do not see the 3D printed drop spindles on their website, but there does seem to be a plan outline for a yarn and wine tour?! I know what I'll be doing this weekend.
