The Wool n’ Spinning Podcast

Episode 9 :: Commitments

September 2015

Thank you for watching! This month’s videocast features some finished spinning, prepping for Spinzilla, a Louet review of their most recent Spinzilla pack and Sweet Georgia Yarns’ September Fibre Club all spun up! An exciting announcement for me is included towards the end but if you haven’t seen and don’t want to see spoilers of the Fibre Club, I’ll let you know when to stop watching.

  1. I’m excited for your baby steps in the fiber world! Watching your videos and reading your blog has rekindled my enthusiasm and enjoyment of spinning. Thanks for all the time you share with us.

  2. How did I miss this? Where have I been? I am so excited to be WATCHING! Boo on me. I am getting ready to comb and spin my Leicester Longwool fleece…your comments about your Lendrum settings and the Wensleydale were helpful as I decide on how I am going to spin LL on my Lendrum. I am spinning for a fingering/lace weight shawl, the Pebble Beach by Helen Stewart. We’ll see what happens!

    1. Ooh thank you for watching! I just got onto iTunes as well so the show is there too. I’m glad my Wensleydale comments helped! I love the finished yarn but it’s not my favourite to spin :)
