  1. Love your podcast.
    It is great to watch you spinning. The tips on joining fiber was very interesting and I will give it a try.
    I enjoyed you talking about what you are doing as you spin and also the info about your wheel.
    It wouldbe nice to have the segment separately as well for reference like in a tutorial section. So it could be quick to find.
    I would like to do a breed a long. Right now I am spinning samples of different breeds – Gotland, falkland, welsh and perendale. I have 1 oz samples of fleece that I am spinning. It is quite interesting to compare the different fibers.
    Thanks for the interesting show.

  2. Thanks for another great podcast! I think one of the things I fumble with for a breed-along is HOW. So now I am thinking that I should try a few different draws and/or finishes, knit up some sample squares, handle them and see how they wear, etc. I want to find a way to really experience the wool as it transforms from loose fiber to FO.

    1. Thank you! You know, this is what I’ve been thinking about since the episode went live. More like an opportunity to compare with one another what different fibres are like, spinning different draws, finishing differently, etc. Hmmm … Need to think about it some more!!
